Manage diet with Calorie Counter Pro

9

With summer coming to an end, the hunt for ways to keep the pounds off during the winter months begins. Sometimes just watching what we eat is not enough and it needs to be taken to the next level where calories are counted. Previously counting calories while on the go was a pain, people had to carry around books that contained the information on how many calories each piece of food they were eating had, as well as log it by meal. While this worked for some, it was a pain to many and luckily the folks at MyNetDiary agreed and have released Calorie Counter Pro into the Android market. For those who left an iOS device to come to Android or those who still carry an iOS device, this application may have been a favorite for you already, and for those new to the application, this is one you won't want to miss.

Calorie Counter Pro is an intuitive application that offers users an abundance of features, and covers nearly every aspect of a daily healthy life. From measuring your daily intake of vitamins to water consumption as well as calories taken in verse burned through excersize, this application is a great one stop for all your dietary needs. Entering meals is extremely easy as the application features a real time search, like Google, so as you type it is giving you options to select. With over 300,000 food items in the database that continues to grow, searching for your food choices should be a painless process.

If for some reason you happen to be without your device you can log into their website and enter your meals in the same way, and sync it to your device at a later time if needed. With MyNetDiary you are not alone, their amazing dieting community is always just a click away from you if you need some extra motivation or any assistance in figuring out exactly what is best for you. If you want to crack down on what you are eating, and transform your lifestyle to a healthier one you will definitely want to check this out in the Android market today for $2.99.

Sony teases Internet TV (aka Google TV)

11

 

Since Google TV was announced, we have been waiting for some concrete products that will have the software. The Logitech Revue is nice, but for Google TV to really change the way we watch TV, it has to be imbedded into the actual TV you buy and not another set-top box. Sony has stepped up to the plate by teasing its Internet TV, which it proclaims as "the world's first HDTV incorporating the Google TV platform."

Details on the specs of the TV itself are sparse, and any hint of a release date or price are also absent. However, it is probably safe to assume Sony would love to have this out for the holiday shopping season, and they had them on hand at Google IO last spring. We will all just have to wait until October 12th to find out more. Click on to the source link to read all the (vague) details (and some old videos). [Sony]

Droid Incredible ROM -- Uncommon Sense v1.0 [From the Forums]

19

Here's what looks to be another great custom ROM for the Droid Incredible -- Uncommon Sense v 1.0.  It comes with a load of UI customizations, and I'll be the first to say they look as good or better than anything from a carrier or manufacturer.  It's more than just visual tweaks though, there is a lot behind the scenes as well as application level tweaks that sound like the makings of a winner -- both improvements to the Standard Dinc system and bits and pieces from other phones.  I know you guys get addicted to flashing ROMs, so do I :)  Try this one out!  You can download it from the forums post, and there's a nice collage of the ROM on device after the break.  [Android Central Fourms]

FM Radio now available for Droid 2

4

 

Although there are plenty of online radio apps on the Android market, nothing can really replace an old fashioned FM radio. If you own a Droid 2, you can thank XDA for yet again figuring out how to implement one just by following a couple simple steps. As with most things of this nature, a little command line work is necessary, but beyond that it’s easy as pie. Just make sure before you try that your Droid 2 is rooted or else this will end in failure. You’ll be jamming to your local stations in no time. [via XDA Developers]

BlackBerry Playbook tablet [the competition]

38

Well, folks, RIM did it. It unleashed the BlackBerry Playbook -- a 7-inch tablet with specs that even the biggest Android fanboy can look at and nod approvingly. Cribbing from our pals at CrackBerry, who are in San Francisco at Devcon, we learn:

  • 7-inch screen.
  • Dual-core Cortex A9 processor at 1GHz
  • 1GB RAM
  • A special BlackBerry tablet OS
  • Ultra thin at 9.7mm.
  • HTML 5 and full Adobe Flash 10.1.
  • Hardware-accelerated video.
  • Front (3MP) and rear (5MP) cameras. 1080p video recording.
  • HDMI out.
  • BlackBerry OS

Except for that whole BlackBerry Tablet OS thing, sounds pretty sexy. Be sure to check in with CrackBerry for the hands-on and more.

Verizon's HTC Merge (aka Lexikon) shows itself, Bing bruises and all

21

 

The good news, the Verizon HTC Merge -- also codenamed the Lexikon -- has gone full frontal yet again, with BGR scoring a plethora of shots of what looks to be a more finished device. The model number (ADR6325) and system identifiers are in plain sight, and we now know it's got a 5MP camera.

Oh, but look at what else is there -- Bing. Just like we told you a week ago after ripping down the RUU, Verizon's gone and binged up this phone, which is a big shame since it's a world phone, with a GSM card for working overseas. The good news? This is still and HTC phone, so we fully expect the full force of the hacker nation to focus on it, and hopefully free it of whatever shackles Verizon weighs it down with. More glamor shots at the source. [BGR]

Call Informer brings more information to incoming call screen

21

Having a large contact list can be a little bit difficult at times as it is easy to confuse people, especially those with common names, or similar last names. Having the company name that the caller was from, or just some additional information about them on the incoming call screen would be great as it would help differentiate the people that are calling, and until now this was not readily available.

Jesta's Funhouse has recently released an application called Call Informer which allows additional information to be shown on the incoming call screen so you can have a better understanding of who is calling. Users have the option to add notes, company names, nicknames along with the city, state and country the caller is calling from. This information must appear under the inbound callers contact information in your Android device, and users can define exactly which pieces of information they want displayed.  For only 99 cents in the Android market, this is a must-have for anyone who has a large phone book.

This application has been tested on the Motorola Droid and Droid X but should work on other devices. If your device is not supported please send feedback to the developer so the development can continue!

Amazon offering the Samsung Fascinate for 1 cent

20

In a move that should shock no one given similar pricing for the Samsung Vibrant and Captivate, Amazon is now offering the Verizon-locked Samsung Fascinate (check out our initial impressions here) for just a single penny for new Verizon Wireless subscribers. Current users that are eligible for upgrade can get the phone for $99, which is still a great discout over the usual sticker price of $199. If this whole Bing nonsense does't bother you (or you are willing to use another launcher), this is a great deal for an excellent phone. [Amazon

In Android 2.2, you have the option to allow applications to automatically update themselves. And that's a good thing.
