If you've been piling on the pounds and want to get those thighs in shape for bikini season then look no further than your Nokia phone for help.
Install Nokia Step Counter on your device and you'll be able to see how many calories you're shedding with every step you take. The app works by utilizing the accelerometer in your handset (check the compatibility section to see if Nokia Step Counter supports your device), recording the number of steps you make, the time you've been moving for, distance traveled, and calories expended.
It's very easy to use Nokia Step Counter and is more or less a matter of just turning the application on and starting to walk. All of the data on your stepping is displayed in a large font so you can view it even if your hand is down by your waist.
The great thing about Nokis Step Counter is that it records your progress every day. You can then check the 'Diary' section to see exactly how many steps you took on any given day, along with details of the calories you burned and the total distance covered. The 'Progress' section of the app allows you to track your performance over time, which can be a very satisfying way to view the benefits of your exercise regime. The information can be viewed as raw data or in graph format.
I feel that Nokia Step Counter would've benefited from a few more features and measurements. For instance, it would be nice to be able to track how fast you're moving, but hopefully this kind of functionality will be added to future versions.
As it is, Nokia Step Counter offers a very simple way of recording the exercise you do on a day-to-day basis.
