The folks over at the Beta Labs are really turning it on. Close on the heals of Nokia Communication Center and updates for Maps, Location Tagger and others comes a new beta – Nokia Step Counter. It allows us to count our steps and determines the distance we covered and then computes the energy expenditure. An option to compare our activity levels on different days by looking up the summaries stored is also there.
As the name suggests, it counts the number of steps you take by analyzing how you ’shake’ your phone. The idea beind the application is that since most people have their phone with them everywhere they go, it is natural to use the accelerometer in an S60 product to track your daily activity.
