It has been a bumpy start for Apple's Health app, but more developers are getting on board now that all the kinks have been ironed out. For example, Nike has finally updated one of its iOS apps with Health app integration. On Tuesday, the footwear company rolled out version 4.6 of its Nike + Running app with Health app support and other new features.
The app now includes a new quick start feature and the ability to swipe in any direction to access your music or running stats. The app has also been updated with elevation tracking for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and it is now capable of delivering more accurate and detailed running information by tapping into your Health app data. You can view the entire changelog below.
Jailbreakers can add a new gesture to app icons, which will display extended information about each app. Once installed, Flinfo delivers this info after swiping up on a home screen app icon.
While Flinfo has no settings, the gesture used to invoke the tweak can be changed using Activator. The most useful information displayed is probably the version number, otherwise the additional info may only be of interest to developers or those who are actively working with the iOS filesystem.
Vine has become an important social justice tool now that it has cleaned up its image by eliminating porn. For example, the social video service has been one of the major weapons utilized by protesters in Ferguson, Mo. during the Mike Brown demonstrations. This is why it is important that Vine just updated its app to make it easier to share videos on social media. The Vine app offers users a quick way to shoot and upload videos, which is important for capturing unexpected events. To make things even easier, users can now import existing videos from their camera roll so they can share them with other Vine users. The new feature supports slow motion video and allows users to mix previously recorded videos together.
The Vine app has also been updated with new editing tools which can be found by tapping the scissors icon on the preview screen. From here users can mute audio and access the one-touch preview and undo button. Other new features include a new grid mode, focus lock, ghost mode and torch mode that allows you to shoot in low light situations. You can learn more about all the new features on the Vine blog.
