RunKeeper Update Brings M7 Coprocessor Support, AirDrop Sharing


RunKeeper, one of the most popular fitness trackers for iPhone, now boasts a number of cool new features that take advantage of the M7 motion coprocessor built into the iPhone 5s — thanks to a new update that hit the App Store today. The app also supports AirDrop, allowing you to share your workouts with nearby friends.

There are two new features for the iPhone 5s, the first of which is “Pocket Track,” which automatically detects walking activities and records them in the background — without you having to hit the start button. The second is a “stride rate chart,” which allows you to see your stride rate changes while running or walking.

iPhone 5s users can also enjoy improved auto-pause for running and walking activities.

And for all RunKeeper users with an iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, or iPhone 5, there’s now support for AirDrop sharing, which lets you send your workout records to nearby friends over Wi-Fi. You can also add RunKeeper friends by sending AirDrop friend requests.

The latest RunKeeper update is available from the App Store now; just follow the source link below.
