Pedometer++ 2.0 Released ➝

David Smith writing about his recently released update to Pedometer++ for iOS:

The visual design of the app has been given a complete overhaul. This was most directly focused around making it so that you can now see an entire week at a glance. Beyond just the structure I also spent a lot of effort improving the colors, typography and general appeal of the app.

Nike+ Move ➝

Announced at Apple’s September event and available today. I’ve installed the app but I’m still not sure if I’m going to stick with it or move back to Pedometer++.

M7 Powered Pedometer Application ➝

I’ve been using David Smith’s Pedometer app, Pedometer++, since I first heard of it a few days ago on Twitter. It’s a very simple application that displays the number of steps you’ve taken today and in the last seven days. If you picked up an iPhone 5s recently, I suggest you try out Pedometer++.
