Get Ready to Ride with Strava App for iPhone


A friend of mine recently participated in a mountain bike race in Colorado. His 18-mile ride was completely tracked by the Strava Cycling - GPS Biking and Riding Route Tracker (free).

Your iPhone works as the GPS device. Go out for a ride and then view your activities on Strava.com.

As you can see on the image above, it took my friend less than 2 hours to complete the 18 mile race, climbing 1,500 feet in elevation (already starting at 6,900 feet!). 

PGA Championship Hits Rochester! Get Ready with These 5 iPhone Apps


My hometown of Rochester, NY, is a golfing town. Despite its smaller size, Rochester has hosted the 1995 Ryder Cup, the 2003 and 2013 PGA Championships, the Senior PGA Championship, and the annual Wegmans LPGA event, and even the Xerox Classic. With a number of world class courses, such as Oak Hill and Locust Hill, residents squeeze in as much playing time as they can, given the harsh winters, and are thrilled to welcome professionals with regularity.

To help you enjoy the PGA Championship experience taking place this weekend, I've tried to compile a list of Rochester and golfing related apps and websites. But first, I'll give you more details about the town hosting this year's event.

Track Your Emotions with HeartMath's InnerBalance Sensor [review]


I'm a skeptic by nature, so I wasn't sure what to expect with the HeartMath InnerBalance sensor for iOS ($99). The device clips to your earlobe and detects your emotional signals, transmitting them to your iOS device. Well guess what... the darn thing works! I was surprised to see that as my breathing, pulse, and emotions changed, the app registered those changes. There is something to this, and physicians, therapists, and researchers need to take note!

The sensor is more comfortable than I thought it would be... I thought it would pinch, but it just sort of sits on your earlobe. A wire tethers the sensor to your iOS device with a 30-pin connector. If you have devices with Lightning connectors, you'll need an Apple adaptor. The connection is a bit tricky, and it took me a few tries to get everything plugged in just right. I would prefer a wireless solution, but it does work.

Cherry Hill, New Jersey (June 28, 2013) – MyNetDiary, a comprehensive food diary, recently released its latest app, the MyNetDiary GPS Tracker for iPhone. This new app tracks and calculates calories burned during motion-based activities (running, biking, walking, hiking, and skiing).
