Tech Tuesday-RunKeeperPro and WWScanCalc

Today's installment of Tech Tuesday features a really cool, FREE app called RunKeeperPro.  The cool thing about Run Keeper is that you do not have to have a smartphone to reap the benefits!  You can enter information onto their website which is www.runkeeper.com.

For those with smartphones, you can find the app for iPhones, Androids, and Windows Phone 7.

RunKeeper keeps track of the following activities-running, walking, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snow boarding, elliptical, skating, swimming, rowing, wheelchair, and other.

You can set it up for where the exercise took place-for example, treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, rowing machine.

If you use the app on your smartphone, you can use the GPS and map out the route that you took and for added incentive you can share on facebook to show others your progress or compete with others using the app too!

Also, for those who are Weight Watchers-you can download the WWScanCalc App on the Android Market.  With this app, it opens up to a camera, you simply put the food products barcode in the box, it analyzes and tells you how many PointsPlus the food item is!  Great for those who do not have a calculator or always forget theirs at home!
