Our list of newly released apps and updates kicks off today with two brand new Nike+ apps and another nice update that brings even more content to Flipboard. As always, we’ll be keeping this list updated as more notable app related news comes up throughout the day.
Nike+ Training: Nike released a new app today that works with shoes using the Nike+ Sport Adapter (included in Nike+ Sport Pack bundles) that syncs wirelessly with your iOS device over bluetooth. The app’s iTunes page explained “Sensors in your shoes track every jump, step and rep as you take on pro athlete drill packs that challenge you with the moves the world’s best use to get into shape.” This app is geared specifically towards fitness routines and provides four week programs for daily workouts and demonstrations of drills from Nike trainers.
Nike+ Basketball: Nike also released another iOS app today called Nike+ Basketball that that works with the same Nike+ technology but is geared specifically towards basketball players allowing you to track “how high, how quick and how hard” you play. The app provides stats for Vertical, Quickness, Hustle, and more. It also has a “Showcase Your Skills” feature that allows you to capture video and create highlight reels of your games to share through various social networks.
Flipboard version 1.94: After receiving an update earlier this month with Google+ and YouTube integration, today the app gets full access to the New York Times for paid subscribers, as well as the NYT Top Section free to all readers.
