A new update for the iOS Fitbit app was released today, adding new features such as MobileRun, which allows users to track their route and pace while walking or running.

The new 2.3 version of the app also includes a new way to track food with a barcode scanner, along with a calorie estimator. In addition, the Fitbit app now includes an expanded database that has information on over 350,000 different food items.

The app now lets users record any workouts they take part in, along with a calendar that allows them to track their exercise progress. The app now allows user to add a photo to their Fitbit profile for the first time. Finally, the 2.3 update syncs up the MobileTrack feature even if it is working in the background.

What do you think about this new Fitbit app update and does it bring enough new to the tablet to warrant a download?

Fitbit adds real-time running stats


very happy to hear about these changes, would love to see fitbit utilize the myfitnesspal database though so I don't have to switch between the two apps. Hopefully this updated database will cure that.
