Introducing SparkPeople Mobile

Thursday, April 10, 2008

Hi everyone

We're happy to announce that we re-launched some of our key tools so they can be used on mobile phones that can connect to the internet. We basically simplified the tools so they work on smaller screens.

You can login to use our food and cardio trackers, helping you keep up with tracking while on the go. You can also do a quick food lookup or browse foods from popular restaurants, for when you quickly want help to make a better food choice.

You can access this by going to on your mobile phone. You can click here to learn more about our mobile site, including finding out how to interact with other mobile users on SparkPeople.

Finally, even if you don't have a mobile phone, if you know someone who does you can let them know about this! As with everything else on SparkPeople, it is totally free.

    Your mobile site is great, but how about attaching a CSS stylesheet for iPhone and iPod Touch users? And, don't forget the .png icon so I can add it to my homescreen.

A SparkPeople app in the App Store would also be great. There are tons of other diet and exercise apps in the new App Store. I'd love to use my Spark account instead, though.

    This is a step in the right direction. Are there any plans to have the SparkPeople programs available for PDA usage? This would be great for traveling, just use the program and then hotsync with your computer when you return home.

    I just tried it on my phone and it's great, although (at least on my phone) the type is teeny! And do we have to log in every time?
