RunKeeper has released an update for its iOS app that makes better use of the M7 motion co-processor in the iPhone 5s to provide more detailed information about your workout.

The update, released today and available to download from the App Store now, also brings new features for non-iPhone 5s owners too, such as the option to send a friend request or share a workout schedule with another user via AirDrop (for iOS 7 users with an iPhone 5, 5s or 5c).

With the updated motion sensing capabilities, users get a new feature called Pocket Track, which will automatically log walks of 15 minutes or longer and the option to track steps per minute (cadence) during a run alongside elevation and pace.
