Mobile App

In May 2013, we released an update (Version 2.0) to our novel Exercise Calorie Converter (for Apple iOS only). In October 2016, we removed it from Apple's iTunes Store due to it being out-of-sync with Apple's current i-OS.

In November 2016, we began work on a major upgrade: Version 3.0. We expect it to be available by January 2017. Stay tuned!
