General Electric have just rolled out a new version of the App Store lifestyle application Morsel, having attracted almost a quarter of a million “morsels” – small steps towards a better, healthier lifestyle. Morsel 2.0 is free to download and provides small, actionable steps to better health. The update brings about a number of new features, including: share via Twitter and Facebook; customizable favourites and to-do lists; personalized plans; and the ability to share with the world your own “morsel” of information.
“The new version of free mobile application ‘Morsel’ provides a manageable and rewarding program to take a daily simple step toward better health” writes GE in their press release, “while also allowing you to promote and share that healthy activity with your friends/family/colleagues.”
Each morsel is described in easy to understand language, and comes with “How It Helps” page. For example: Hold your finger in front of your race. Stare at it for 30 seconds, then look away … If you spend most of the day looking at your computer and objects that are nearby, chances are you’re at greater risk for nearsightedness. This distance-focusing exercise will help you strengthen your eye muscles and maintain your vision.
The application is available to download now, and is coming soon for Blackberry and Android. As a free application, there’s no reason not to check it out!
