Technology has touched just about every aspect of our lives, and mobile communication is leading the forefront. The new check list before walking out the door for most of now is: coffee, keys, wallet, and mobile phone. When our friends or co-workers are without these little devises you can see the look of bewilderment on their faces. Now that mobile phones manufactures have a death grip on our daily lives they refuse to let go, they continue to create a stronger dependence on their product.
The advancement s in technology, and especially mobile technology, is not necessarily bad. As a matter of fact, most of us rather enjoy our iPhone. The iPhone has equipped us with the ability to solve many of life's little issues without having to lug around twenty different contraptions. There are applications for our phone that allows us to take notes at the drop of a hat and share them with our colleagues. We can book all of our flights thru an iPhone application. We have even started to see advancements in education - see Learn to Speak Italian on your iPhone.
So it comes as no surprise that when we decide to get a little exercise we can now turn to our iPhone's for assistance. When looking thru the Appstore under the Health and Fitness category there are thousands of iPhone applications to choose from. Perhaps one of the most intriguing applications is the pedometers. These applications turn your phone into an actual pedometer, and many of them even have a calories burned display.
Just like traditional pedometers, not all iPhone pedometers are created equally. When looking for a pedometer for your iPhone you want to make sure that you find one that is accurate. Pedometers that use the SmartStepTM seems to be the most accurate available, most of the iPhone pedometers using SmartStepTM actually are more accurate than traditional pedometers. Since walking or jogging is not the most social exercise, iPhone pedometers that allow you to listen to the radio while exercising are far more popular than the applications that don't have this feature.
