Recently launched to the iTunes store is Movesum, the Swedish health platform app by Lifesum. The app aims to step-count and assist users in visualising the number of calories that they burn each day. This may be from drinks to food and will assist users in paying attention to their everyday activity as well as their food consumption.
Every day, the app will count how many steps each user has taken. It will then match these stats with the food and drink intake. Users are able to pre-set goals for the number of steps they wish to take daily.
When using the app, users can swipe to view various drinks and food and tap the items to see their approximate nutritional information such as fat content, protein and carbs. Movesum also provides an estimate of the amount of steps needing to be taken to match the calorie counts.
Henrik Torstensson, the CEO and co-founder of Lifesum said in a recent statement “The simple truth is that people don’t need to move very fast to be healthy, they just need to move more. Movesum makes it fun to move on a daily basis, and will hopefully encourage people to walk instead of driving or catching public transport.”
Movesum is available for a free download from the iTunes App Store.
