Getting fit this summer? Maybe a fantasy world with hordes of zombies breathing down your neck will be just the thing to get you moving. That's the thinking behind the range of Zombies, Run! apps, now available for both iOS and Android.
Sewn together with some skilled writing, the app lets you choose a mission, then inserts warnings and other parts of the storyline into your usual music running playlist. You then become part of the adventure story that unfolds -  in which hundreds of people are depending on you to save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse.
There are two versions of the app out at the moment – Zombies, Run! (for Android and iPhone) and the starters version Zombies, Run! 5k Training (for iPhone only). Not for the faint of heart – and sure to get your heart pumping.
