[prMac.com] Belgrade, Serbia - code*aplus just released Run Mate 1.0, a brand new iPhone application that helps beginners get into shape, safely and injury-free. It allows intermediate and professional runners to create, fine tune and follow their own running schedule.
"Best software is one made because its authors needed it. Run Mate is such application," said Aleksandar Vacic, principal developer of code*aplus. "There are numerous training programs available online, and they all require following strict schedules: 1 minute walk followed by 1 minute jog, repeat 10 times - as one example. Trying to follow this is troublesome due to frequent fiddling with the stopwatch. Or have your own trainer do this for you, which is expensive and impractical for most runners."
"Run Mate is affordable and efficient solution that allows up-front definition of the entire program. When running, simply play the music you like and let Run Mate track the time and announce rhythm changes."
Run Mate ships with several predefined running programs, including training program for beginners developed by running experts. It allows full customization of the existing training programs and ability to create new ones. Its running view is clearly readable in broad daylight and with dimmed screen. Pace changes and other important moments in the running session are announced in beautiful voice using easy to understand English language.
Pricing and Availability:
Run Mate 1.0 is available worldwide in the iPhone App Store, for $2.99 (USD), in the Healthcare & Fitness category. It requires iPhone OS 3.0 and runs on all models of the iPhone and iPod Touch.
