The Microsoft Band-supported inKin fitness service is working on a Windows app

inKin wants to link up family, friends and co-workers up to its fitness-themed social service. Naturally, it is working on apps for iOS and Android, and in an email to users it revealed it is working on a Windows-based app as well.

Unfortunately, that's all we know about the Windows app; the email did not state if it will be just for PC users, Windows 10 Mobile owners or both. It also didn't include a list of features, nor a specific release date.

So what is inKin, exactly? Here's what its official website says:

"inKin Social Fitness Platform is a free service that allows you to connect with friends, relatives and coworkers with different fitness devices and apps.""We created inKin because we realized that people who use fitness trackers couldn't view each other's results and achievements, and challenge and compete with each other. Users would have to either buy fitness wearables that his or her friends were already using, or convince them to switch to the preferred brand, which is even harder."

InKin supports a number of different fitness devices from companies like Fitbit, Jawbone. Misfit and others. It recently added support for both versions of the Microsoft Band device.

Thanks to Chuck for the tip!
