So, I see there dozens of run tracking apps and devices.   I am currently using Endomondo on my phone and am pleased with it.   Is there an overall favorite running tracker consensus?

So Frustrated with Google+ photo management!

It seems google wants us all to take pictures with our phones and autobackup to Google+, and just be happy with that.

- Tagging a friend gives them access to the whole album.  What?
- Picasa is so buggy I no longer trust it for archiving photos.  It duplicates people albums (sometimes dozens of duplicates) and after spending literally hours cleaning that up; in 2-3 days the duplicates come back!  I see this bug was logged 2 YEARS ago and is still not fixed.  It appears Picasa has been abandoned by google.
- Photos autobacked up from phone to google+ cannot be synced back to picasa or PC without jumping through hoops.  Its as iff google thinks all photos come from phones,.

I have a large photo project to do for the family where I need to tag thousands of scanned photos (faces and events).  With these bugs I really think I am going to look elsewhere to store and tag the photos.  Its ashame; I love most google services, but it seems google is just dropping the ball on decent reliable  photo management.

Any suggestions?

Sorry, I'm new on here....do you know if there is a way to download certain pictures to a flash drive or directly to a file on your computer from Google Photos.  It seems like emailing the pictures to myself would not be very efficient if I had a LOT of pictures I wanted to actually have in a file for accessing with a scrapbook program.  Don't think I can use the program directly with google plus.

So, I put my motoX in a drawer and switched to the LG G2.  Been using it for a few days.   My conclusion?  I'm pretty sure Im switching back to the Moto X; but Im going to give it a few more days to be sure.

Why I switched to G2:   Screen (can see it outside and much larger); camera OIS, performance.

Why Im probably switching back to Moto X:
Miss Active notifications and Moto Assist.  You can try to approximate Moto Assist with Tasker; but it is not nearly as smooth.
I see no real world performance improvement with the G2.  The Moto X is just as smooth and lag free.  Camera on G2 is nice; but I do not see a huge difference in most situations.   And; G2 feels clunky to hold.  I miss the elegant design of the MotoX.

Moto X is the best phone of 2013 until now. Almost pure android with great innovations of Motorola as Active notifications, touchless controls, Moto Assist and Quick Capture <3 In love with Motorola!

A promising product; but how does a company design a product like this that does not work with 75% of the smartphones out there (almost all android phone dont work with this thing)  

 I know they claim its a bug in android, but that sounds pretty lame considering bluetooth is a standard and the same phones work with other bluetooth devices.  FitBit has designed out a huge chunk of consumers from buying the product.

Thanks for the link +Stuart Anderson! With that beta version of Fitbit app my Note 3 (SM-N900) does sync with my One tracker.

Best Buy now sells 16 and 32 motox design cards. So you can buy the black version in store or buy a design card which you can take home and use its pin on motomaker.com to customize one.

Just starting a C25K program using Emonodo Trainer.   I'm looking forward to it but the first day was brutal!  Badly out of shape.   

Also just joined this Community.  Love reading all the tips and stories.

+nick mowen I'm eagerly awaiting a wearable that blows me away like Glass did when it was unveiled

So far I like the force very much except for the clasp.  It is difficult to get snapped shut.  Since it isnt waterproof the thing has to come off at least once a day and its annoying to clasp.  Its hard to tell when the little teeth went far enough to stay or not.

Watches have been around for over 100 years.  A clue might be ; None of them use this clasp method!

So; a better clasp/and and get it working with Android properly.  Other than that I like the features.

Gave Aviate a try for a day and a half.   Maybe I didnt give it enough time, but I found it frustrating to use.  Could not find the apps I wanted when I wanted them; which I know is the exact opposite of the purpose of Aviate.  And the trade off in customization is frustrating.

Interesting idea; but not for me.

+Olivier Malinur You can already do that stuff using Tasker, but yea, it would be awesome to have it in Aviate.

Best Practice question:  If I want to apply actions to say 8 items; is it better to create one Everything widget with 8 hotspots; or 8 everything widgets with one hot spot each?    My guess is one widget with multiple hot spots.

I would go for one widget with 8 as well. Because that would imply a more responsive layout without affecting the relative alignment of your elements.

Service is very good Sandwiches are good Pizza: Sorry, but it tastes like frozen pizza. Tried it three different times, each time pretty disappointed in the Pizza crust. If it isn't frozen, it sure tastes like it. Great for sandwiches though.
