Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Diet and Food Tracker and bonus app!

Today's Free App of the Day is Diet and Food Tracker - By SparkPeople
Originally $3.99

This is an attractively designed diet and exercise tracker. However, it has one major flaw--it MUST be connected to use. You can't even add information and sync when you get online. It's strengths are that it's very comprehensive. It includes a Meal Plan that you can pick foods off of to add or you can enter foods by searching in the database or adding your own. The database seems very comprehensive and I like that you can see the full nutritional info for a food. I like the Meal Plans, too. Although some of the foods have the word RECIPE after them, which makes one think there's a recipe available, but tapping on the food never made one come up. You can add exercise from a extensive set of exercises, including things like "playing with kids" (642 calories/hr) or "playing an instrument" (382 calories/hr
38 of 64 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker by MyFitnessPal.

I'm provviding an alternate fitness app that I use. It also has an extensive food database. It does require internet access to synch information but you can enter data and sync later. It also has a very good food database which is available offline. I haven't played with the weight database, but there is one and it is accessible offline. Fitbit users: You can sync this app with your Fitbit account. I use this for logging my food instead of the Fitbit app. I think it also works with some of the other exercise tracking devices, such as the Sony. 4333 of 4516 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
