I bought the Withings scale about a month ago and love it. Between it and the WiScale app my iPad and iPhone, I keep tabs on my weight loss progress. It's easy and convenient. Today, I received the Withings Blood Pressure Monitor for review. Here's what I like about the unit:

Unofficial Black Belt Magarchive App

I love my martial arts almost as much as I love technology.

I am a black belt in TaeKwonDo so I was especially interested in this Unofficial Black Belt Magarchive app.

It includes all of the magazine archives since the 1960s so it almost goes back to before me but not quite. For just 99 cents it's definitely worth the money.

This developer also has other martial arts apps - HansTricks; iBeNinja; iTrick - All worth getting if you love the sport.



Love running with the Nike+ app

I just recently downloaded the Nike+ app after a receiving a discounted offer.

I run regularly so I was really interested to see how well this would map my runs. I have to say it has added so much to my workouts. I can see exactly how far I have ran. It tells me my average time and also maps my low speeds and fast speeds.

You don't need any extra hardware. You just need the app on your phone and as you hit the pavement , you just start up the app. It announces each mile marker and your pace for that mile as you run , which I have to say was a bit disconcerting until I got used to it. Then when you get home you can look back at that run plus all other runs that it stores in history.

Now if only I had remembered to start the app during my recent ski trip.



Mindfulness From Your iPhone?

Mindfulness From Your iPhone?

Our portable electronic devices are more often than not sources of distraction in our lives. The Mindfulness App, a new application available for the iPhone, is a tool for reducing stress, increasing your presence and awareness, and getting more out of life. It provides guided meditations ranging in length from three to 30 minutes, mindfulness notices that can help increase your awareness of the present moment, and statistics allowing you to track your meditation practice over time. You can also choose to sit in silence, with bells ringing periodically, and design your own meditation that lasts for as long as you want.

Obstetrician Answers Question Asked by All Expectant Parents

Obstetrician Answers Question Asked by All Expectant Parents

Pasadena, California - Expectant couples want to know, “when will my baby actually be born?”. The Baby Birthday app, developed by obstetrician Toni Morrissey, MD, is finally answering this question.

Dr. Morrissey notes, “Babies rarely are born on their actual due date. Many factors determine when you will deliver, including when you go into labor, when your water breaks, or when you might need to be delivered for some other reason to reduce the risk of complications.”

Baby Birthday for the iPhone predicts the baby's actual delivery date based on the mother's medical history, surgical history, examination, and even the small effect of large changes in the barometric pressure.

Hate waiting?  Especially at the Emergency Room? There's a FREE app (FastERTX) for that, courtesy of iPhone Life's own Medical blogger, Harvey Castro, M.D.!  The app serves the Dallas / Fort Worth area, but it's a great idea that should be available everywhere.

FastERTX is currently in top 100 medical apps and helps DFW patients find the local HCA hospital, wait time, call hospital, website to hospital, list and map views plus driving directions, using your gps location.
