[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - The importance of creating Healthy Habits is in the news almost daily now as people are looking for ways to improve their health. Despite good intentions, making lasting changes without a plan and support system is unlikely. Healthy Habit is a highly rated iPhone tool that helps people create healthier habits. With the latest update, it now offers powerful tools to help users share their experiences with their support system.
"We know that people working to create healthy habits benefit from sharing their progress," says Brandon Masterson, president of 2Morrow Mobile. Version 1.3.0 of the Healthy Habits iPhone app from 2Morrow Mobile went live this week and significantly expands the ability for users to share progress with others.
Healthy Habits version 1.3.0 is the first update released by 2Morrow Mobile. Healthy Habits, a 3rd generation health and fitness app for the iPhone focused on changing long-term behaviors (or Habits) was first released in May 2011 on the iTunes app store. By 5/23/11 it was listed # 1 on the iTunes New and Noteworthy list for all Health and Fitness apps. The app has also been featured on iTunes "What's Hot" list for most of June and July.
This app allows people to identify areas they wish to change, define motivations, customize goals, track progress and celebrate success. Along the way they can get reminders, share their progress with others (via email, Facebook or Twitter), earn badges and reach new milestones. The goal is to remind users about their good intentions and reward them for making the changes they wanted to make.
There are hundreds of millions of Smartphone users and most have health related habits they would like to change. 2Morrow Mobile believes that the Smartphone is a perfect tool to help people track and create change because people tend to have their phones with them all of the time. In fact, many people now even sleep with their phone next to them.
