At this week's South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, Endomondo and Nike launched new apps for Facebook's Timeline.
The Endomondo fitness app for Facebook Timeline posts workouts live and in real-time, so Endomondo members can share their fitness progress and show routes of their jogging or bicycling workouts. The app is available on all major mobile platforms, from iPhone and Android to BlackBerry and Windows Phone.
The Endomondo mobile app offers both free versions and Pro versions for less than €3 and can be used for a variety of sports, such as running, cycling, and walking, showing GPS tracking route, distance, duration, and calories burned. On certain handsets, the app also supports integration with built-in music players and Bluetooth heart rate monitors from Polar and Zephyr.
As of last week, people can also use the Nike FuelBand iPhone app to find friends and see a leader board of how much "fuel" they've earned versus their friends. This week, Nike app users can now post their progress and milestones available directly to their Facebook Timeline with a new app launched at SXSW.
Other new Timeline apps just launched at SXSW include The Onion, Vevo, Foursquare, Fandgango, and Viddy.
