iPhone and cycling: How to have fun and stay fit

My iPhone is the perfect cycling companion. It entertains, informs and keeps track of where I go and how long it takes me to get there.

February is Health and Fitness Month at Mobile Nations, and my exercise program for most of my adult life has been cycling. Living on Cape Cod, I am treated to some beautiful vistas, ocean views and a fair share of challenging hills. During the warmer months, I can be at the ocean in about seven minutes and then continue for 20 – 30 miles along the coast.

Dine-O-Matic review: Beautifully designed, highly focused random restaurant picker for iPhone

"Dine-O-Matic for iPhone is a gorgeously rendered, single purpose app designed to do one thing, and do it very well -- randomly pick where you should go out to eat when can't make up your own mind."

When you're done, or anytime thereafter, tap the plate to get your pick and watch Dine-o-Matic spin up it's FTL (food type locator) and jumps you right to a random selection.

Clear review: bright, bold task list manager for iPhone

"Clear is a task list app for those who don't like task list apps -- a new, gesture-based approach that's manages to be simple without being simplistic."

Clear seeks to apply new sensibilities to one of the oldest stalwarts of personal information management, the to do app. Clear does so by eschewing the user interface "chrome" of a typical iPhone app -- lots of buttons and columns, and endless amounts of tiny text to tap through -- for large lists that you swipe and push around. It also sheds a lot of features found in more expensive, more complicated "getting things done" apps, and instead focuses just on creating and managing lists. No more, no less.
