"The idea for Fit Phone came a couple years ago when the iPhone SDK was first released," said Blaine DaRonco, founder of be | daronco, LLC. "I simply asked my wife for an idea and the first thing she thought of was a workout log. A few months later the first release of Fit Phone was in the app store, only a couple weeks after the store opened. It was our first app. It was one of the app stores first workout apps. And it's been our best app. Users are constantly asking us for features and we've tried our best to incorporate them into Fit Phone. It's been the users that have truly made Fit Phone grow to where it is now. The GPS tracking of cardio exercises is just the next great feature of Fit Phone. Who knows what will come next!"
