Want to check out the new M7 MoCoPro in your iPhone 5, but don’t have an app to do it? Then check out David Smith’s Pedometer++, a free app which grabs data from the low-power motion-tracking chip and shows it to you.
Pedometer++ is really just a kind of proof of concept, although you can totally use it as a step counter. The app shows you two totals: today’s steps, and a running count for the past week. It can also display a live step count on the app’s home-screen icon, but that seems to be a rather stressful feature.
I have said before that I think the M7 is going to be a big deal, giving almost battery-free location and tracking data to any app that needs it, and this is a nice start. I wonder what we’ll see when the photo and fitness app developers get ahold of it?
