Answer? None of the above. It’s your iPhone. It goes where you goes, right? What better device to track wherever you go and whenever you go than a $650 digital pedometer (must have iPhone first)? That’s what you get with Moves. It tracks your moves.
Tracking For Fun, Not Profit
Moves is a personal tracking application for the iPhone. It tracks your moves automatically. Actually, it even tracks where you are when you’re not moving, but you get the idea.
If you’re walking around the house, the office, school, or shopping, Moves tracks your moves like some kind of 21st century pedometer with a memory.
It tracks you when you run, while you’re walking, cycling, or wherever your booty takes you.
As a pedometer, a very expensive pedometer, Moves tracks you by counting your steps (must carry iPhone with you, even to the bathroom).
Because Apple’s Maps are built-in, Moves can place your walking, riding, jogging routes on an iPhone map, so you can see where you’ve been and when and how many steps you took.
You need this, right?
Tell me the truth? Does this look like more fun to use than one of those battery powered pedometers?
What caught my eye about using Moves daily was the maps and routes. What it told me was something I suspected but didn’t have any proof.
Most of my daily activities are within the house. Chasing girls, stopping fights, clean up after our spawn, hosing down the dogs, preparing meals.
So, Moves simply displayed a map with out house and a blob which gave me visual proof that I don’t go anywhere.
From there, I developed a walking routine, a jogging routine, a trip to Walmart routine, and let Moves track every Starbucks within a two mile radius.
The timeline is easy to read. It simply stacks your whereabouts in a moving storyline (your day may be more boring than you think; mine was).
Moves is also a great instigator for changing your moves, or movements. Vary the neighborhood walk. Jog different. Track how you wander around the shopping mall looking for a place to park.
You get the idea, right? And Moves is free. I’m not sure if Moves connects to a government computer so Big Brother knows where you are all the time, but there does always seem to be a squad car within eyesight.
