Is anyone using both of these apps? I'm trying to find a way to track all of my caloric needs and fitness without a lot of duplication of efforts. Anyone importing or exporting data between the two or just using one for fitness and the other for diet? Any useful tips would be great.

tell you the truth, I only use Calorie Counter and fatsecret.com to track my weight, and when hopefully CardioTrainer, and its add-on Weight Loss Trainer, gets a bit better (what I want is to have a full sync of my training and weight history, not just an upload to the Cardio Trainer website - I tend to "hack" my phone a lot and often need to reinstall CardioTrainer, and find that all my history on the phone is lost) I will probably only use CardioTrainer for everything related to training and weight control.

I use both, but simply do a manual posting of the workout to FatSecret. The calories don't agree exactly with the walking category but it's close enough. Eventually, one of the apps will develop an integration to the other.

I use both and wish the best of breed could be combined. I hate the mechanics of how calories burned are calculated. They are too high. The exercise module in Calorie Counter is useless. I use a polar heart monitor and get accurate calorie counts from that then just remember what my burned calories were for the day and eat them back to hit the calorie goal I need. Which means I have to take the calories consumed in Calorie Counter and add my actual calories to find the amount I really need to consume. It's very frustrating.

I absolutely love both Cardio Trainer and Calorie Counter. I also wish the two could be combined, but I've found that the calorific program from Cardio Trainer isn't what I want as far as monitoring my food intake, and the exercise portion of Calorie Counter isn't quite what I'm looking for either. I felt like I had to comment on this because I feel the EXACT same way. I've had both apps on my phones for about 3 years now, and I can't imagine ever getting rid of either of them, but combined they sure do take up a lot of space...
