[prMac.com] San Jose, California - Viaden Mobile today is happy to announce the launch of All-in RunMeter GPS+, a pedometer that works both with accelerometer and GPS, thus ensuring a more reliable and precise way of tracking running, jogging and walking statistics.
Combining best practice with modern technologies, All-in RunMeter GPS+ by Viaden Mobile turns an iPhone or iPod into the ultimate fitness widget. Packed to the brim with distance tracking and shape monitoring features, the app is fun to explore and easy to use.
Knowing that GPS signal can sometimes be unstable and unreliable, the developers of RunMeter GPS+ wanted to give users a product they still could trust without being fully dependent on GPS. The solution they came up with was to combine two technologies - the built-in accelerometer of the iPhone/iPod touch and GPS - in one product, which double-boosted its performance characteristics. The accelerometer is there to back GPS up if something goes wrong with the signal. When the GPS is available again, it overrides the accelerometer data and corrects it if necessary for more precision. Using this algorithm, RunMeter GPS+ makes sure there are no gaps in users' jogging, walking or running stats and all data is recorded and stored correctly.
The use of the GPS technology allows RunMeter GPS+ to count steps and track stats in the background mode, which is impossible in accelerometer-only pedometers.
Apart from the common pedometer options, such as counting of steps, monitoring of burned calories, measuring of distance, speed and pace, RunMeter GPS+ boasts a bunch of extra benefits. First, users can set a variety of daily goals in a number of categories: covered distance, used calories and performed activity. The app will signal the achievement of every goal.
Second, all entered body parameters are saved and stored as graphs so that the user's progress is easy to track.
Third, all data is convertible to CSV and can be sent to the user's email for further reference.
The most enthusiastic fitness addicts will love the sharing feature that allows users to post their achievements on Facebook and Twitter with just a few taps.
"We know how frustrating and discouraging any problems with fitness tracking devices can be when you're working out. This is we tried to eliminate any potential setbacks in RunMeter GPS+ as best we could," says Yuri Gurski, Viaden Mobile CEO. "The algorithm of double data tracking makes our app the most reliable pedometer on the App Store."
