    Thanks for your feedback.

    The Nike+ Basketball shoes feature Nike+ Pressure Sensors and Nike+ Sport Sensors, which capture movement and performance information.

    This information is used to calculate your stats using Nike's proprietary algorithms.

    The information captured by your Nike+ Basketball shoes is synced directly to the Nike+ Basketball app on your mobile device using Bluetooth 4.0 (a.k.a "smart" or low-energy technology).

    Data from the Nike+ Sport Sensors can also be uploaded to your Nike+ account via Nike+ Connect.

    Note: The Nike+ Basketball App is no longer available for download in the iTunes App Store. If you are an existing user with the app already downloaded and installed, you can continue to use the app as you've done in the past. Be aware that if you have the Nike+ Basketball App installed and upgrade to iOS 8, you will no longer be able to use the app, as it isn't compatible with iOS 8.
