Calorie counter MyFitnessPal for Windows Phone gets a scrumptious update today

27

As some of our readers may know, a few of us around here are fitness junkies. Namely myself, Sam and Seth are all active Fitbit users, runners, Crossfitters or gym rats. Because of that, we really dig running apps like today’s Track Runner or Fitbit Tracker. MyFitnessPal fits into that because the free service ties into virtually everything.

What is MyFitnessPal? It’s a sophisticated calorie counter. But it’s also super smart and easy. Plus it can connect to Fitbit, so that when you run and burn calories, MyFitnessPal auto adjusts based on your activity level. Throw in the Aria scale with Wi-Fi, and it’s like living in the future.

MyFitnessPal has been on Windows Phone for a while and version 2.0 went live a few months ago when it got its Windows Phone 8 bump. Today, version 2.1 is available and it brings with it even more cool features. Heck, it’s such a big update that the company even blogged about it. So what’s new?

'Dragons Adventure Companion' Windows Phone app for Lumia 2520 now available

9

The exclusive Dragons Adventure game from DreamWorks and Nokia for the Lumia 2520 (see review) is surely an exciting and interesting title, even if you’re not a kid. Based off of the hit movie ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ (which is getting a sequel soon) the Adventure game lets you go on quests, train various dragons and even fly a few around.

Now, the companion Windows Phone app is available for Lumia phones, and it’s quite exciting. The app works by pairing up to the Lumia 2520 using NFC and Bluetooth (Tap + Send) and you’ll need to create a free account with DreamWorks. From there, you’ll also need to enable location services on both devices as GPS is a prime feature.
