Following Runmeter and Walkmeter, it's Cyclemeter's turn to be updated with fitness app developer Abvio's Elite subscription upgrade. As a result, the app, which is described by Abvio as "the most advanced application for cyclists ever designed for a mobile device," has gone free for its core capabilities. For its advanced features, there's the Elite subscription upgrade. (Note that existing users get to keep all previously purchased capabilities.) The Elite subscription upgrade unlocks a number of premium features. These include history dashboards (view charts for your workouts), weather recording (log the current weather conditions for every workout), and Google Maps integration (including terrain and traffic maps). Elite also adds support for FIT file format export and import, the RFLKT and RFLKT+ bike computers (including altitude and temperature sensing), and direct workout upload to Strava (whose own cycling app was updated several days ago). But perhaps most notably, Elite brings M7 coprocessor support for steps and running cadence on iPhone 5s:
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, the new version of Cyclemeter is available now in the App Store for free. The Elite subscription upgrade is offered via in-app purchase for $4.99 per year. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
