Jawbone Up app itself is already a very good app. Everything you need can be found in the app. However, in order to keep improving and provide as much services and data for the users as possible, Jawbone Up is opened to all 3rd party apps, which is an excellence move!
So what it means? It means that you can download the approved third party app and link to your current Jawbone Up App. You can expand your data collection via even more apps now. Some will do simple function such as auto update your status, while others can even auto post photos, and more! I'll explain each app in details.
Jawbone Up Third Party App - TicTrac
If you are a follower of me, you may have notice that once a day, I'll receive an update from Tictrac telling me if I've walked more or less steps, comparing today and yesterday.
You can see from the update, I've walked 2894 fewer steps on Saturday when comparing with Friday. Usually during my weekends, I'll tend to give myself a break and rot at home, not going anywhere. Therefore it explains the drop in steps.
However if you are a fitness manic, you can use these data to plot your daily chart. If you know you have a drop in steps, you can compensate by moving more the next day. It all depend on you and how you want to use the information.
