Get Motivated To Complete One Exciting Task Each Day With LifeSpicer

Posted by Jennifer Allen on April 17th, 2012

It might not be the start of a new year but it's never too late to start making a change to one's life. LifeSpicer goes some way to facilitating that ideal.

The app offers 365 different ways to spice up life, with challenges ranging from going commando for the day to donating to charity or memorizing a Simpsons quote.

They might not be all life affirming or revolutionary but they're bound to give the day a bit more of a kick and make things more interesting. Some will push users to step outside of their comfort zone, others will be randomly silly. All will be worth trying.

Throughout, users can track their progress and check the tally to see how they're doing. Each day a random Spice of the Day is offered by the app so there's no guessing what's going to come up next!

LifeSpicer should prove to be a great way of getting more out of life and doing something fun and different each day of the year. Let us know how things go with the LifeSpicer plan.

The app is $0.99 and it's out now.

Track Educational Achievement With Continuing Education Tracker

Posted by Jennifer Allen on June 13th, 2011

Education is something that continues long into many people's adult lives. So many professions now require regular accreditation and studying for certain qualifications.

This is particularly true in the health care, fitness, finance, education, law and engineering fields where things change so fast that regular retraining is vital for success and promotion opportunities.

There's now an app in the form of Continuing Education Tracker which enables users to keep track of all their continuing education units easily. It tracks the specific course being undertaken, the relevant licenses and what budget is required for that time period. It's all very easy to view from one screen and it's also possible to email the information elsewhere.

It looks set to be a great way of keeping track of everything so that users can always see just how they're doing on their respective course. It could certainly prove to be a great motivational tool as well as organizational.

Continuing Education Tracker is available now for all iOS devices and is priced at $0.99.

lolo Burn Is A Real Running Trainer

Posted by Chris Hall on August 6th, 2010
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

I personally love fitness training apps, especially the ones that tell me what to do at all times. My problem when working out, and this is especially true with running, is that I always want to stop. I can use RunKeeper all day, but after I get past mile 2-3, I start losing interest fast.

lolo Burn is the first running trainer that I know of that not only tracks your progress on a treadmill, but also talks to you along the way. it tells you, in a nice, calm voice (voiced by a real person named Britani, not a scary computer voice) that you need to run for X number of minutes of X speed and X incline. The lolo voice doesn't quite have the motivational skills that my old soccer coach possessed, but I also don't have to be afraid of balls being thrown at my head.

For a bit of extra push, lolo Burn also includes 24 fitness tracks (you can also use your own music) that matches beats with your running pace. The built in music is the typical stuff that you would expect to hear in a Lifetime Fitness aerobics class, but if that's your thing then you are set.

Pick up lolo Burn today for $4.99 at your local App Store, and enjoy your run!
