updated 01:24 pm EDT, Thu April 17, 2014

RunKeeper's step tracking app utilizes Apple's M7 chip in iPhone 5s

RunKeeper has launched a new, passive step tracking app today, entitled Breeze. By constantly tracking motion with the M7 chip found within the iPhone 5s, Breeze offers its users a personal coaching feature, in the form of push notifications and updates regarding one's activity levels. The following day, Breeze details a summary of the previous day's activities and stats. Users can share their completed goals, high activity level days, and a general activity profile with friends on Facebook, Twitter, RunKeeper and elsewhere. Free to download, Breeze requires iOS 7.0 or later and an iPhone 5s for full feature compatibility.



Beamer 2.0 released, pushes any video to Apple TV

Beamer, a video streaming app built for Apple TV, has received an update today that includes a redesigned user interface and new features. Beamer facilitates the streaming of any movie file from one's Mac directly to their Apple TV, using AirPlay. Accepting all common formats, codecs and resolutions, Beamer is optimized for video playback at a high quality and supports 5.1 surround sound.

In v2.0., the user interface has a revised aesthetic. Playlists can be used to AirPlay many movie files in a row, and if a video file has not been viewed to completion, Beamer can recall the playback position later. DVD and BluRay subtitles are now supported, and support for high bit-rate video has improved. Beamer is priced at $15, with upgrade pricing available for Beamer v1.0 license owners. Those who purchased the app since last October are eligible for a free upgrade. Beamer v2.0 can be downloaded online as a free trial initially, and unlocked to its full version via in-app purchase. MacNN is evaluating the app, so look for our hands-on report soon.
