Two suggestions around exercises. I have an elliptical at home that I use almost exclusively for my exercise, so:

1) Remember elliptical for me rather than forcing me to choose "other" each time and enter elliptical. You could add elliptical to the list for me, or default my selection to elliptical. I'm sure you can come up with a great UI for this.

2) Let me enter distance along with time and calories. I would like to see how far I've run on my elliptical by week, month, etc. For built-in devices the user enters time and distance and fatsecret calculates calories - even if the device reports it and it differs. You could estimate the calories for the user and let them type in the actual value if they prefer.

1) You can set your "default exercises" in the exercise calendar. If you usually do an hour on the elliptical on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, you can set your calendar to automatically put that in on those days, and then adjust accordingly from there if you miss a day or add a day or something.
Otherwise, in the "other" category, mine does "remember" my activities. I only have to type in "C" and "Cross Country Skiing" pops up. I think it's pretty user-friendly...

2) Just type in the distance in your Exercise Description. For example, I'll write "Treadmill, 3 miles" and then put in my time.


Someone who is busier than you is working out right now.
There will come a day when you can no longer do this. Today is not that day.
