+Jason Howell  I have a new Droid Turbo, coming from a SGS3.  Samsung's notification bar is pretty good with all of its widgets for turning things on and off.  Motorola's is not so good. 

Are there any good Notification bar replacement apps out there?  Or maybe  a good toggle widget for antennas, data and sync?

Pretty basic, not bad though for a first phone.

Hi everyone,

I need some critical feed back on the latest version of my app.

The perfect app for those runners out there that want to track the mileage on their running shoes.  

Let me know what you think.  Good or bad.  Thanks.

I quite like the idea, and I will try it for my next new pair of running shoes (a bit difficult to estimate how much I have run in my current ones so far).

If I'm to give some criticism, the UI looks a bit outdated and the list performance is quite slow, even on my Nexus 4. 

Keep up the good work!

Rev-ing my Shoe Tracker app to Version 1.0.8

A couple new things to peak at including: Shoes from K-Swiss, A new progress bar, redesigned shoe tiles and a couple glitch fixes.

I'm a little more proud of this one.  Let me know what you all think.  Good or bad.

Game consoles iterating like phones!!  That is so awesome.  Settings/game data will need to be in the cloud or super easy to transfer...  What if this was a yearly subscription service?

Thanks guys for your feed back.  I'm going to redo the brand logo tiles to better fit the screen sizes and remove the background on the list.

Introduction
Right now I am enjoying my position as track lead at Fisher Controls.  However, my aspirations are to become a full time Android and Windows app developer.  Love me some Java and .NET.  Home theater is my other passion.  I keep my body in shape by jogging and/or biking 6-7 times a week.
