SimpleSteps – A simple way to stick with your New Year’s health goals

No Comments

Boston, Massachusetts – For New Year’s, the free mobile app SimpleSteps 1.0 gets you to eat healthier and actually stick with it by helping you make simple, achievable changes over time. A third of adults abandon their New Year’s goals within a month. Why? Because we make unrealistic changes that are too hard to keep up with, like dieting or counting all our calories. Studies show that we should instead aim to build simple habits over time. To drink more water, for instance, try first to drink a glass at lunch instead of pushing yourself to drink eight a day.

SimpleSteps is the first tool that uses this research to help you eat better. It breaks down your ambitious health goals into easy steps you can take, tailored to your lifestyle. It helps you build habits around these healthy changes so they become an automatic part of your routine. That way, you can eat healthier without worrying about it. The app has 2000 beta users, and many of them have been pleasantly surprised at how effective it is.

“I really like that it helps me make progress without having to change my whole life,” said user Hillary Purcell.

SimpleSteps uses Harvard’s healthy eating guidelines to make its nutritional recommendations. The app helps users eat more fruit, drink more water, eat fewer sweets, and more. SimpleSteps’ social element links you up with friends for support as well. Users are notified when their friends succeed so that they’re motivated to do the same.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 8.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
SimpleSteps 1.0 is Free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.

Announcing Commercial Availability of SIGNUL Beacon System

No Comments

Vancouver, Canada – The IoT Design Shop at Finger Food Studios is pleased to announce general commercial availability of our SIGNUL Beacon System. This achievement is the product of two years of design and effort that has culminated in a unique and engaging beacon product that is specifically targeted for personal use by our customers.

SIGNUL beacon “zones” are established by placing a SIGNUL beacon at a physical point of interest. This could be at home, at work, in a vehicle, or any other place where a micro-location pointer is useful. The size of the zone is fully configurable as are the reactions that will occur when a smartphone detects entry or exit from a zone. These reactions include launching Apps, starting messages or phone calls, triggering alerts, and more. Additionally, a SIGNUL channel is available on IFTTT (if-this-then-that) to allow integration with home automation systems along with a variety of other services that offer IFTTT channels such as Philips Hue, SmartThings, Nest, and WeMo.

The SIGNUL ecosystem was developed by the IoT Design Shop, and final production was funded via a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. Trent Shumay, CTO and product owner for SIGNUL describes the achievement by saying, “Going into our campaign, we felt that this was a product that needed to be made. Most beacon solutions at the time were targeted at marketing or business solutions, but missed the unique features that a smartphone-as-presence solution could offer. A year later, we believe this to be even more true than when we set out on our journey. Most people are tethered to their phone at all times, so being able to unite their physical and digital worlds via the presence of their phone is becoming incredibly powerful.”

Pricing and Availability:
SIGNUL retails for $50 (USD), and is available for order now on the IoT Design Shop Store. iOS and Android are supported, and Beta access to the SIGNUL IFTTT channel is available today.
