Last week was just a little more sweet than bitter for Apple devotees who also happen to be fitness junkies. That’s because Abvio’s trio of fitness apps — Runmeter, Walkmeter and Cyclemeter (which we’ve raved about) — have been granted two big upgrades, namely iOS 5-style notifications, and something we’ve been waiting a long time for: the ability to gather data from ANT+ dongles like Wahoo’s Fisica.
Just a quick heads-up: there’s only a few hours left to take advantage of our Disk Drill Pro promotion at Cult of Mac Deals. Disk Drill Pro is a great file-recovery utility — your go-to app when it comes to protecting and restoring files that may have been “permanently” deleted or otherwise damaged.
If you’ve ever cussed at your computer for corrupting a file or accidentally deleting something you needed later… read on.
The updates just don’t stop! Apple also updated its iMove, Remote, and Find My iPhone apps today with iOS 5 support and new features.
Remote 2.2 brings iOS 5 compatibility and “additional stability and performance improvements.” iMove 1.2.2 offers iOS 5 compatibility and added support for video imported from external cameras. Find My iPhone 1.3 lets you find a Mac via GPS and receive an email when a registered device comes back online after being lost, all thanks to the magical powers of iCloud.
You didn’t think you could possibility update so much software in one day, did you?
Apple basically updated every piece of software it makes today, in case you haven’t noticed. Following the release of OS X Lion 10.7.2 with iCloud integration, Aperture and iPhoto for the Mac have also been updated.
Aperture 9.2 and iPhoto 9.2 both bring iCloud integration and iOS 5 compatibility to Apple’s two photography apps.
Apple guidelines prohibit third-party giveaways with iPhones and iPads as prizes — but that hasn’t stopped enterprising companies from using Apple’s latest hot product, the iPhone 4S, as a contest giveaway.
In the past, the Cupertino company has cracked down on a few iPad giveaways – in one case not approving a company’s app until it pulled the contest – but it has been hit and miss.
Among many other software releases, Apple issued an update to the Apple TV 2 today.
While the release can be included in the iOS 5-related slew of updates, this latest version actually brings the Apple TV to iOS 4.4. The update includes AirPlay mirroring for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, Photo Stream support, iTunes Move Trailers, NHL GameCenter, and Wall Street Journal Live.

Apple released Cards for the iPhone and iPod touch in the App Store today. Scott Forstall introduced Cards at Apple’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” event last week.

One of the neatest features of iOS 5 and iTunes 10.5 is Wi-Fi Sync, which allows you to finally leave the Apple Connector Cable in your computer desk drawer where it belongs, at least most of the time. It can be a little hard to figure out at first how to make Wi-Fi Sync work for you. Here’s our handy guide to getting Wi-Fi Sync working.
Today Apple released the iTunes Movie Trailers app for the iPhone and iPad. The app lets users watch HD trailers from the iTunes store.
Apple’s new app actually does much more than just show you upcoming movie trailers. You can also find movie showtimes at local theaters, purchase tickets, see a calendar view of upcoming movie releases, and view favorites.
