beaTunes is on sale at 43% off with MacUpdate, but only for 24 hours. Actually, as of this post, there are only 21 hours left, so if you’re interested in purchasing it you need to hurry!
I’ve used beaTunes in he past to automatically detect BPM of all songs in my iTunes library and assign it to the metadata. It has worked flawlessly every time. With this deal, it’s only $19.95.
RunKeeper, my favourite iPhone app for keeping track of my running, got a major update recently.
Amongst the changes is Auto Pause, which as it name suggests, pauses the timer when you stop. This is a great feature that I’ve wanted for a while. My house is roughly between a major park with a 5 kilometre circuit and the beach. When I run to the park, I need to cross a few streets with traffic lights and it’s always been a pain to pull the iPhone out of the pouch, unlock it, hit pause, wait, then hit resume. A few times I’ve tapped the wrong button and ended my run partly into it. Auto Pause solves that problem.
Rip Empson on TechCrunch:
All the while, the startup has quietly been building a “correlation engine”, because simply aggregating fitness and health data from a few devices wasn’t enough — RunKeeper users had been clamoring for a way to make sense of all the data integration from third parties.
This is great news. I’ve used RunKeeper to track my runs for a long time and love it. It’s an iPhone app that used the built in GPS to track your distance and pace while letting you choose a playlist to keep you pumped. Definitely recommended.
