“With support for Notification Center available in iOS 5, our customers will have hands-free access to data that will help them monitor their fitness in real time," said Steve Kusmer, CEO of Abvio.

In addition to announcing the availability of the latest version of award-winning iPhone applications,Runmeter, Cyclemeter, and Walkmeter6.0, Abvio today also revealed that all three apps support Notification Center in iOS 5, Apple’s latest operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Notification Center offers users of fitness apps the ability to easily view workout information while running, riding or walking. Runmeter, Cyclemeter and Walkmeter 6.0 are the first apps in the Health & Fitness category on the Apple iTunes App Store to offer support for Notification Center.

In addition, Runmeter, Cyclemeter and Walkmeter 6.0, offer advanced support for the Wahoo Fitness ANT+ system (purchased separately), as well as interval training, cycling cadence, target alerts, zones and a lap button (see separate press release).

Notification Center can be used for a variety of messaging services, including receiving emails, texts and friend requests, and is also useful for iPhone fitness. In Runmeter, Cyclemeter and Walkmeter 6.0, notifications can be set to be received at specified time or distance intervals. The notification will then show up on screen displaying statistics from a configurable list of among 70 data items, such as time, distance, speed or pace, heart rate, calories burned, as well as split and interval information. If the screen is locked, iOS 5 will automatically show the notification for a few seconds, which saves battery power by only turning on the display when necessary.

“We applaud Apple for making the iOS the best mobile phone platform, hands-down,” said Steve Kusmer, CEO of Abvio. “We’ve tested our applications thoroughly to make sure we’re offering best-in-class support for iOS 5. With support for Notification Center, our customers will have hands-free access to data that will help them monitor their fitness in real time. We remain firmly dedicated to the iOS and building apps that help improve the fitness and health of our customers.”

Runmeter, Cyclemeter and Walkmeter 6.0 are all built from the same foundation, and come preconfigured for running, cycling and walking, respectively. Each app supports all features and activities. All three are available on the Apple iTunes App Store (iTunes link) for $4.99 (US). One voice, for hearing replies from Twitter, Facebook and dailymile.com, is included free. Subsequent voices are $0.99 (US) each via In App Purchase.
