[prMac.com] London, UK, Already considered by many to be the best interval training app for Apple's iOS devices, ITGO - Interval Trainer GO by Appnoose for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad has been upgraded to version 1.4 which features several free enhancements and also introduces several key new features available as an in app purchase.
Appnoose states that the original ITGO set a new standard for Interval Training or HIIT on the iPhone and iPod touch with a host of new features and design aesthetics never previously seen on any mobile multifunction device. Features such as dual music playlists for fast and slow intervals in addition to voice, beep or custom prompts, double vibration on the iPhone and gorgeous concentric dial timers that include separate interval timers as well as a session timer brought high praise for ITGO 1.0. Version 1.4 software extends that functionality by adding greater flexibility to setting parameters, adding more audio stimuli and some cosmetic changes.
"Losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle takes effort but ITGO makes Interval Training, one of the most effective forms of exercise, fun and stimulating", states Appnoose founder OD Hunte. "We've added some key new features requested by customers with this update and we've got some even more exciting ones planned"
All existing customers can upgrade to V1.4 and will get the free additional benefits and fixes as listed below but only the paid upgrades, delivered as an in-app purchase, will get the new additional premium features available in ITGO V1.4
Free V1.4 Upgrade Benefits:
1. Sleep Mode
ITGO now stays awake and disables sleep mode correctly.
2. Cosmetic Led Updates
LEDs have been upgraded with slicker sharper LED graphics and sliders have also been updated to a cleaner version.
3. More Stable Operation - ITGO's operation is more robust
4. Fixed Timer Error - A timer error which allowed setting of the session length to less than the current time has been fixed.
Premium Upgrade Benefits
Ratio - ITGO now has an adjustable Ratio from 1:1-20. This higher ratio is accessed by double tapping the ratio button and selecting "Value" to numerically enter the ratio value from 3 to 20. ITGO then gives you a choice of either 1:1, half the maximum value and the maximum value. For example a maximum ratio value of 10 would show as 1:1, 1:5, 1:10. Again, double tapping the ratio and selecting Flip will allow you to flip the slow and fast interval ratios.
2. Interval Length
ITGO now features more flexible intervals from 4 seconds to 90 seconds.
3. Count In Beeps
ITGO now counts in four multi-beeps before interval changes in all modes. This will alert you to the fact the interval is about to change and may come in handy if you are listening to podcasts for example where the audio may not be set to change between intervals. Engage the Beep feature by selecting Beeps in the Sounds page.
4. End Of Workout Session Prompt
ITGO no longer stops to silence, it now has an end of workout session audio prompt
ITGO will run on all OS 3 and higher devices. When running ITGO in the background on iOS 4 devices, ITGO will pause your workout and resume right where you left off when you return to it.
