The app includes sleep tracking, which tracks sleep cycles, duration, and efficiency; a ‘Smart Alarm’, which will attempt to wake users up in light sleep periods; and Moon Phase Tracking among its features, with users encouraged to also track daily variables such as stress levels, caffeine consumption, and workout habits. This data is then visualized for the user, allowing for analysis of sleep behavior based off of what happened on that given day.
Sleep Better is available to download now for free.

Runtastic PRO, which is a GPS tracker for fitness activities, is a great option for those interested in being more active on a daily basis. The app primarily features mapping functionality, but includes other features such as a personal training diary, geotagging, a personal voice coach, post-workout statistics, graphs for tracking your progress over time, social media sharing, and more.
But the app is now even better than it was before, with the release of its version 5.0 update. The latest update has retained all of the app’s robust features, but provides the user with a new way of going about using them. Version 5.0 has a completely new user interface design and structure, as well as post-activity improvements including new automatic sync and hydration features.
You can get Runtastic PRO on the App Store for $4.99.

Runtastic has launched a new version of Six Pack Abs for iOS.
The app uses realistic-looking avatars to guide users along with videos; the app offers pre-built workouts and workouts that can be crafted by users themselves. It includes new features such as body fat visualizations, heart rate integration, tips, and language support for Chinese and Portuguese.
Six Pack Abs is available for free, with optional in-app purchases on the App Store.
Feel like getting fit? How about with four new apps from Runtastic? Track & improve your situp, pullup, squat, and pushup fitness with each of these exercise-spcific apps, and have your iPhone automatically count them with the accelerometer. How cool is that?
Each app comes with three levels of difficulty, a sports science training plan to get you to a specified number of repetitions, voice coaching, social media sharing, and a backup of your data on the Runtastic website.
Surely your fitness level is worth the $3.96 that all four apps would cost if you bought them all. It would have been nice to have all four in one app, even as in-app purchases, though. Maybe the devs will do that in a future update? We hope so.
For now though, check each app out below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
