I am surgically attached to my blackberry, so the first thing I did when I got it back was download the SparkPeople App. It's free and really easy- plus I'm much better about keep track of food and water!!

Before I joined SparkPeople.com I was using a free Smart Phone App called Calorie Counter. Now I use it as an additional resource for being able to track calories not found at SP. The one feature that I really like about it, is that it has a bar code scanning feature. You just scan a bar code and it automatically registers the nutrition information.
I think this would be a great feature to add to the SparkPeople Smart Phone app. Until they do, use Calorie Counter as an additional resource. You can also access Calorie Counter on your desk top or lap top but you can't do the scanning feature.
I use Pandora on my smartphone. That way, I can check emails and text messages while I'm walking. I feel productive, and get my walk in at the same time! I also love a new app that tracks your time/mileage by using GPS! I was amazed that it even tells you altitude, and average speed.
phone = Palm Pixi app = WorkOut Tracker
If you have a smart phone...download the free apps. You can always find great applications (ex. Spark People, Yelp, Goby, Mint.com, Flixter, the list goes on and on) for FREE. Many apps also have "lite" versions - (Shazam, Words Free). Save your $1. Buying a regular phone saves you even more!
