Nokia Step Counter

Tuesday, July 01, 2008

As I recently upgraded my phone plan and got a Nokia N95 8G (which by the way is a fantastic device), I trailed the net for exciting and useful/useless applications to install.

One quite useful application that I can a cross is the Nokia Step Counter by Nokia Labs. It uses the accelerometer built into the phone and transforms the phone to a pedometer (step counter). The pedometer is quite accurate and I now now how much (or little) I move around in a given day.

Working in the IT industry and almost turning 30 I guess it's important to start thinking a bit more about my overall well being (read weight) and this actually seems to motivate me to walk a bit more.. ;-)

The application has a couple of cool features like auto start in the morning, diary, trends charts, etc.
