Ikea launches Nike+ inspired app for cake lovers

Kondis is an Ikea application similar to Nike+. It keeps track of your runs and walks but most of all it tells you how many calories you still have to burn in order to eat your favorite cake. Forsman & Bodenfors are of course behind the iPhone app that I believe was launched in Sweden only with an hilarious video.

Kondis contains 30 classical Swedish recipes, everything from small biscuits to large cakes. You select what you’d love to eat, if you prefer to walk, run or bike, and the application starts counting how much you need to burn to enjoy that cake.

The apps also features other functionalities similar to Nike+, such as the route tracker and a series of motivational messages you receive while you are “training”.

We missed this last year when it came out. But they just won a well deserved Fab Award for Best Use of Technology. And it’s never to late to start training to treat ourselves with some cakes :)
