Apple Health App and two others Reviewed
Apple products are known for their ease of use. That was before the Health app from apple. I spent a lot of time just trying to input my age, sex, weight, etc. The other thing that seems really stupid is you input different ingrediants and minerals, etc individually. So have fun when you eat a salad figuring out how much of each mineral is in your food. This seems really stupid. You can only assume that there is more to his product that I am unaware of. This just seems so NOT an Apple product.
Need some motivation? How about the sound of zombies coming up from behind? The sound on this is great. They really use stereo imaging to make it real. The only thing is there isn't much to do. I gained a bunch of objects, but I have no idea what to do with them .There was another thing missing. Zombies. Oh during the first few missions I was eaten by zombies, but I expected them to come out to play more often. I would often walk 5-10 minutes without a zombie approaching. I did later find out thst I could turn on my music (that would stop it from being boring). You can also listen to podcasts and they will automatically lower the podcast/music so you an hear the zombies or instructions. For me this app posed another problem and that was that it takes up almost 600 megs of storage. I have a 16 gig phone, and that's a chunk. If you are struggling for room for photos, this will be a challenge. I will be the first to say I didn't really give this my all, but out of the gate the game lost my attention and when I saw where future sessions would cost I lost more interest.
I LOVE my fitbit. It motivates me all the time. When you have friends that motivates me as well. Now they have added more motivational tools in the form of challenges. You can invite your firneds to a daily challenge, a weekend challenge, or a weekday challenge (winners win bragging rights). It's nice to see that other people are finding the time to move, and for me that is motivational. The best thing about the fitbit is they can be as low as $59. I use tie Fitbit one and it goes for around $99. Check out fitbits at fitbit.com
