Google finally seems to be getting it. My biggest frustration is the lack of good cross platform messaging options. iMessage is great is everyone is on a apple device, but not everyone is (and my work machine is certinially not), google talk has some cross platform apps but the conversation can not be carried over to multiple devices, Whatsapp, Viber, et al limit a user to one device (lame). Facebook is the only platform that i have found where I can continue a conversation on any of my devices (iOS, andriod, windows, mac, and web). Personally, I am really starting to like and use Facebook Messanger as my primary messing platform, but I would like to see what Google is able to do here, as Google is my hub for most all my other conversations.
Interesting to see. Using the UP, FitBit, and Basis I still believe FitBit has gotten it right thus far in terms of apps, data available on the web, and integrating in weight, activity, and food. However, this purhcase and the open API from UP should hopefully be good for the industry as a whole.
My biggest complaint with the UP is the lack of a web based interface and export to see the granular detail as I can with a FitBit. This is one step in the right direction.
Jawbone also said today that it’s opening up its Up mobile software to ten different fitness-app makers, including RunKeeper, MyFitnessPal, LoseIt, Withings, Sleepio and IFTTT (for workout prompts). Jawbone Up users with iOS devices will now be able to share data to and from these partner apps with the Up app.
“This is the first Android device I would feel comfortable using on a regular basis. That doesn’t mean I’m going to, but I would be just fine with it. If I had to boil down my thoughts about the Nexus 4 into two sentences, those would be them.”—
“The data showed that the most productive workers belonged to close-knit teams and spoke frequently with their colleagues. So, to get more employees mingling, the bank scheduled workers for group breaks, rather than solo ones.”—Tracking Sensors Invade the Workplace - WSJ.com
It’s an interesting but smart play for Amazon.com to fund sellers working capital. The more hooks Amazon can keep in the sellers the more sticky they wil be and the more products consumers will be able to buy. This coupled with the rumors about future wine sales!
Lift is a simple way to achieve any goal. Our first version is available, as of today, in the Apple App Store. Go get it.
In beta testing, we saw our users achieve habits across 180 different goals. This is just the tip of the iceberg—people have an unquenchable desire to…
Been waiting for their launch. As someone who spends a lot of time tracking thinks i do (Human instrumentation, e.g. FitBit, Lose It, Zeo, Lark, RunKeeper, etc) I’m excited to the see Lift’s progress. tracking activities or aspirations can be hard. Many of the tools out there are not flexible enough (e.g. dont break the chain calendars)
This is a rally cool use of tracking and analyzing personal behavior. As I’ve mentioned I am a big user of Daytum for tracking but that requires active tracking rather than the passive tracking used by Stephen.
Analysis like this is great for tracking behavior patterns. I find more value in tracking the context of the behaviors - much like Nicholas Felton does.
