Moves is a simple app that runs in the background of your phone and measures your steps. It will count all of the steps you take, recording the places that you visit and informing you about your routine.
Whether you’re trying to lose weight or simply incorporate healthier practices into your daily life, the best thing you can do for yourself is track your activity. It’s a proven fact that the act of tracking makes you much more conscious of what you’re choosing to do with your time, which subsequently helps you make good choices instead of mindlessly reaching your greasy fingers towards the Doritos. As long as you have your device with you, ProtoGeo’s Moves app automatically tracks how much walking, biking, and running you’re doing.
The design of Moves is ultra simple. A big green circle announces how many steps you’ve taken so far today. Blue and purple ones will pop up next to it if you include cycling and running in your day. The app uses GPS to calculate both what activity you must be up to as well as the distance you’ve covered. At the end of the day, you’re left with a nifty timeline that details exactly what physical activity you did and where you traveled while doing it. Integration with Foursquare’s database means the app recognizes places in your daily life and can mark them on your personal map.
At the end of the day, Moves displays all of the relevant data that it has collected. That includes the number of steps you’ve taken, the distance you’ve traveled, where you’ve been, and even your schedule – all of it is viewable on a map.
One of the main problems with using Moves is that it eats up a lot of battery power. As you can imagine, Moves consumes plenty of resources since it runs in the background throughout your entire day. Still, the app’s developers guarantee that, in normal conditions, your phone can handle Moves running for the whole day (from morning ’til night).
If you like, you can turn on a view of how many calories you’ve burned as a result of each activity. There’s also an option to switch everything between the imperial and the metric system.
