(Welcome to “Three Things About…”, a new Tapsauce series that will see a Rocksauce Studios team member grilled about a subject of their choice. Today, we’re talking Fitness apps with development genius Robert Blake!)
1. Of all the fitness apps you’ve used, which one is the best? Which one is the best designed and developed?
I’m currently using MyFitnessPal to keep track of my diet and exercise routine. The diet tracking is probably the most intuitive feature as it allows you to scan the barcodes with your smartphone camera and pulls up the nutritional information. The app also has social features that allow you to keep track of your friends’ fitness goals. My wife can input what we had for dinner and then I can go in and copy the meal to my diary. We also track our weight and BMI with our FitBit Aria scale and my wife uses FitBit Ultra to track steps throughout the day, all of which sync with MyFitnessPal. I’m currently holding out for the Fitbit Flex, which is their bracelet version similar to the Jawbone Up or Nike Fuel Band.
