Fullpower Announces the MotionX(TM) Application for Facebook

Now 2 Million iPhone MotionX Users Can Share Outdoor Activities With Over 150 Million Facebook Users (October 12, 2009)

SANTA CRUZ, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/12/09 -- Today, Fullpower is introducing MotionX-GPS Sport for Facebook providing MotionX users with simple and direct access to Facebook. With one click, users can easily post and share their MotionX-GPS activities with Facebook friends and with the Facebook community at large. The integration of MotionX-GPS Sport with Facebook is seamless, easy-to-use and is included in MotionX-GPS Sport at no additional cost.

Getting started couldn't be easier; all that is needed for set-up is a Facebook account, and MotionX-GPS Sport will automatically do the rest. MotionX outdoor enthusiasts can automatically start interacting with Facebook in some of the following ways, right from their iPhones:

  • Create your own MotionX-GPS Sport tracks and waypoints on the iPhone, and then with one click post these to your free personal Facebook Logbook.
  • Import tracks to your iPhone from other Facebook users with MotionX-GPS Sport. Tackle these imported tracks on your own by simply following the orange line!
  • Share and challenge other MotionX-GPS Sport users on Facebook. It's all built-in, and is one-click away.

"Facebook and MotionX-GPS Sport are perfect for our outdoor lives: cycling, hiking, skiing, sailing, and running," said Philippe Kahn, CEO of Fullpower. "True sharing is possible now because I can import the track that I wanted to follow, and take it with me on my adventures. As a skier for example, I love to get that tour of the mountain from the locals, and just track it and report back on Facebook."

Several MotionX-GPS customers have already started taking advantage of the powerful integration of MotionX with Facebook:

MotionX-GPS User Profile: Del Olson uses two important tools to sign his name -- MotionX-GPS Sport and a Cessna 140 Airplane!
Del Olson is a Cessna 140 pilot with a passion for flying and for GPS. He let us in on one of his adventures -- writing his name with his Cessna on a GPS track! Del explains, "Well, I just had to try it. I went flying and I wrote my name using the MotionX-GPS Sport app on my iPhone. It was a great flight. My name is 9 miles wide and 2 miles tall. I flew this holding between 1200 feet and 1500 feet. I love this app."

MotionX-GPS leads the iPhone App Store Navigation category. Embraced by more than 2 million outdoor enthusiasts, MotionX-GPS Sport for the iPhone 3G and 3GS is available for $2.99 for a limited time through the Apple App Store.
