Touchfit: GSP leads iOS Apps of the Week

by Dan Kricke

Touchfit: GSP Did you hear something? Oh that’s just the sound of another round of the top iOS apps of the week hitting your screen! This week’s list is led by a fitness app brought to you by a professional mixed martial arts fighter. If freaky fitness isn’t your thing we’ve also got apps for clothing, currency conversion, expense tracking and an update for a social network app worth checking out.

Touchfit: GSP ($6.99)

Touchfit: GSP (the GSP stands for UFC fighter Georges St-Pierre) might not get you as ready to rumble as its namesake, but it certainly will do its best to try. GSP features 500 video exercises designed to help you improve your strength, power, endurance and flexibility. The app uses a mix of gymnastics, bodyweight exercises and high intensity interval training to create its workout sessions and evolves after each session to suit your pace and fitness ability.

LinkedIn update (Free)

LinkedIn’s 6.0 update isn’t exactly a major overhaul, but the app does come with a new, simpler design schematic that allows for greater interaction from its main screen. Users can now invite, follow, like, share and comment on content that is right on their update stream. New customizable navigation also allows for quicker access to preferred features on the service. Additionally, users can now follow “influencers” to get access to original insight and content that is posted to LinkedIn.

ModCloth (Free)

Although ModCloth has been a fixture on the iPad for a while, the app finally got its iPhone app released this week for users who want a more mobile shopping experience. The app functions similarly to its iPad counterpart – users can browse through styles, favorite items, share items via social networks and also buy items via the app’s secure checkout. Whether you’re looking for vintage dresses, shoes or handbags, ModCloth wants to be your destination app, and now with its iPhone version released, it just might be.

Currency – Made Simple ($0.99)

Frequent international travelers will want to pay attention to Currency – Made Simple. The app converts U.S. currency into over 160 other currencies with the tap of a button. Currencies can be searched via currency name, country name or country code. Currencies can also be added as favorites for quick reference. Currency – Made Simple also has six months of historical data on currency conversion rates to help users make decisions on the best time to convert money.

Cents ~ Micro-Expense Tracking (Free)

Having trouble keeping track of your daily latte expenses? Cents ~ Micro-Expense Tracking looks to alleviate the issue with a handy set of quick-tap buttons that allow you to easily log your minor daily expenses. Users can create custom buttons or edit the app’s pre-set expense buttons to track things like lunch, coffee, train ticket and drink expenses. You can then view your expenses in handy charts by week or by month to see just where your money is going.
