As I may or may not have mentioned before, my husband Nick happens to be a software developer by profession and more specifically, an iOS developer by night. He’s had a few apps in the app store for a few years now and he’s asked me to share some news about a recent fitness-related update to one of his apps. In his own words:
I even used this last night, if you follow me on instagram, you would’ve seen me post a preview of the app!
I personally use the app for tempo runs and HIIT workouts. Plus you can share your completed workouts on your social media networks to keep yourself accountable.
Hi Cupcake Kellys Readers,
I’ve been very hard at work on a new version of my musical timer app TuneTime Music Hour for iOS. The app started life as a generic musical timer, but as time goes on, I am hearing of more and more folks using it for fitness related activities. To that effect, I’ve added two exciting new features that I think you guys will really enjoy in addition to the rest of what the app already has.
The latest version adds background audio, a feature I haven’t seen in many timer apps. You can start a timed activity and music continues even if you switch apps or put your device to sleep. Additionally, you can now set custom interval lengths so your timed activities don’t have to be restricted to 60-second intervals.
I’m really hoping to get some feedback from users in the fitness community so that I can continue to add features taylored to fitness activities and make the app even better for people like yourselves. If you decide to check it out, please don’t hesitate to send me honest feedback around things you like and things you’d like to see.
You can check out the premium version of the app here:
There’s a free version of the app as well, but it doesn’t have two highlighted features and also contains ads (the purpose is to be more of a “try before you buy”, though it is still quite functional). Find it at:
