Download this app right now: Step-tracking app Moves for iPhone is now free

Moves iPhone Free Download

The new motion-tracking features in Apple’s iPhone 5s are pretty nifty, but they’re only of value if you have an app that can collect all the data recorded by Apple’s M7 motion co-processor and present it in a useful way. The Moves app does just that, along with the added bonus of presenting all that step data in a beautiful and minimalistic interface.

News broke on Thursday that Facebook acquired ProtoGeo, the developer behind the Moves app for iOS. Some might be freaked out by the fact that Facebook now has access to data covering each and every step you take. Those who aren’t, however, will be happy to learn that Moves has dropped from $2.99 to free as a result of the acquisition.

From the app’s description:

Moves automatically tracks your everyday exercise, commuting and time spent in important places. Just carry your phone in your pocket or bag.

NEW IN MOVES 2.5: A Complete Exercise Diary!
• Over 60 new activity types
• New activities are not (yet) automatically recognized, but easy to add

• Automatically tracks walking, cycling and running
• Recognizes the places in your daily life
• Shows your day as a simple storyline
• Plots your routes on a map
• Step counter (pedometer)
• Calories burned for each activity
• Support for the M7 co-processor in iPhone 5s

More features available from the Connected Apps catalog.

A link to download Moves for the iPhone can be found below in our source section.
