San Francisco – On December 16, 2009 – iPhone fitness application developer Abvio LLC announced Runmeter 2.0, the most comprehensive running application for the iPhone 3G/3GS. Runmeter turns your phone into a powerful GPS stopwatch, giving runners feedback to run faster and increase endurance. Runmeter 2.0 is the first iPhone application to offer built-in Twitter text-to-speech, so runners can hear Twitter replies during training from their coaches, friends and family.
“Runmeter is very easy to use, and it has more power than any other application and sports watch I’ve tried. I’ve logged over 250 miles using Runmeter,” said George Ayoub, a runner and Runmeter user.
It also is the first iPhone application with the ability to start or stop the application from Apple’s earphone remote, and is the first iPhone fitness application to allow direct Google Maps sharing via email or Twitter. Runners can now easily share running routes with friends, coaches, running partners and their entire community of Twitter followers. And, unlike many GPS-based applications, Runmeter 2.0 is battery-friendly — runners can train for up to six hours without recharging or using a battery extender.
“Runmeter 2.0 is the first running app that you can control and use while your iPhone is sleeping and secure in your pocket or armband,” said Steve Kusmer, co-founder and CEO of Abvio. “We are an extremely customer-centric, innovation-driven company and use the products ourselves. These influences drove the creation of Runmeter, and will continue to drive us forward and benefit our customers.”
