[prMac.com] Cherry Hill, New Jersey - MyNetDiary, a comprehensive food diary, recently released its latest app, the MyNetDiary GPS Tracker 1.0 for iPhone. This new app tracks and calculates calories burned during motion-based activities (running, biking, walking, hiking, and skiing).
For those with a MyNetDiary account, which is free to join, the data is automatically synced to the account and the calories burned are factored into the day's calorie balance. However, this app can also be used by itself without an account.
"This app is simple and elegant," says Sergey Oreshko, CEO of MyNetDiary, "built with the same philosophy as all our other apps, which is if they are easy to use then people will use them. Exercise and diet go hand in hand when trying to lose weight. Being able to record your exercises and fitness achievements is important to our members and those living a healthy lifestyle."
With this app, a user can track time, distance, pace, speed, and calories, making it a perfect companion for race training or just monitoring personal fitness improvements. The app keeps stats and notifies the user about achievements and personal records.
The MyNetDiary GPS Tracker also features a built-in music player and audio notifications, both of which can be turned on or off according to preference.
Maps and routes are displayed for planning or sharing with friends.
* Displays time, distance, current pace, speed, and calories burned
* Audio-announcements based on time and distance, for instance
* Auto-pause - if one stops running to take a call
* U.S. and metric units supported
* Built-in lock screen to view current stats while running without accidental taps
* Manual activity entry - for walking on a treadmill, for example
"We didn't want to jam this full of bells and whistles," says Oreshko. "It's not even for the serious professional athlete who needs a dozen tracking options. It's built for the person who is serious enough about exercise to get results and needs a way to record the basics."
* iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5, iPod touch (3rd/4th/5th generation), and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
* 12.9 MB
