App of the Day: Zombies, Run!

Get bored on your evening jog? Spice it up ... with zombies.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

Come on, face it: exercise is boring. I mean, why do so many people listen to music while they're jogging if it's so mentally stimulating? But ... what if you were being chased by zombies? What if you had to rescue other survivors, and collect supplies and deliver them, all the while trying to outpace the walking dead? This is the premise behind Zombies, Run!, an audio story that you listen to over your headphones. You can set your own pace, walking, running, somewhere in between, and the app gives you missions to complete while you exercise ... and even mixes your own music in.
