Developing for the M7

Conrad Stoll has an interesting article on developing for the M7 chip in the latest iOS devices and adapting an app to the motion information returned by the API:

I was already well into developing Runtime when the iPhone 5s was announced and we learned about the new M7 "motion co-processor" from Apple. There have already been a few good articles talking about what the M7 does and how we believe it works, but essentially from a developer's perspective the M7 provides a great way to track a user's steps and type of activity while they are moving. Instead of writing about what the M7 is or how it works, I wanted to write about what its like to use as a developer.
