Earlier this year I mentioned an open source app personal movement tracking app in development called Theseus inspired by Google’s Latitude app.

Here’s a nice step-by-step tutorial on how to create a movement tracking app inspired by the popular Runkeeper app from Matt Luedke.

The topics within the tutorial include:

Setting up a Core Data database for location and run data
Setting up the interface in map views
Tracking the location using Core location
Drawing on the map in real-time to show where the user has been
Saving the data for later
Using the simulator test your app
Setting up a badge system for tracking progress
Setting up custom map annotations

This screenshot from the tutorial shows off the end result:

You can find the tutorial in two parts on the Ray Wenderlich blog: Part 1, Part 2.

A nice guide for anyone looking to create a movement tracking app.
