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.

You can download it from:

Nice! I like all those cool features.

However, you could also be cynical and say that the phone manufaturers are getting desperate in their quest to outdo competition on the number of features packed in to one device.

Great read ! I can't remember the last time I purchased a mobile phone to actually be used as a phone . Maybe it was 5 or 8 years ago? 10 years ago? Anyway, it seems like a long time now. My first phone was definitely a device that was only be used as a phone.
