Action Burn iPad and iPhone App
A social workout tracker
Action Burn app allows you to log your workouts and share them online with other users for feedback and motivation. Your iPhone's GPS will track and log your cardio workouts and estimate the calories you have burned, and a large list of exercises allows you to log any physical activity you get during the day, from organized workouts on your Wii to incidental exercise like gardening.
Log your workouts everyday, then post them to your profile online where your Action Burn friends can comment and provide motivation. You can also share your workouts on Facebook or Twitter to stay accountable.
Action Burn and is free to download (as of publishing date August 1, 2011) and was created by 2 fitness enthusiasts in need of a convenient place to track their workouts.

There is no diet or nutrition component to this app.EXERCISE
Just like with most exercise logging tools, you use the Action Burn app to track your workouts. After filing out your profile with your personal stats, you simply find the exercise you performed or type it in manually, the amount of time you worked out, and how many calories you burned.
There is a huge list of activities to choose from, everything from weight lifting to gardening, which is so long and specific it can take forever to find the correct activity. You can save so much time by simply adding your activity in by hand.
The best fitness feature is that you can activate your iPhone's GPS and track your running or biking cardio workout, and the app will track your distance, average pace and estimated calories burned. Your iPad, however, doesn't make for the best cardio companion, so iPad users miss out on this convenient feature. Aside from the cardio workouts, everything else must be added in manually.CONCLUSION
The social component to this app is awesome. I've never come across a fitness centered social network that runs much like Facebook, allowing you to "like" and comment on others' entries. It is a great place to find motivation and connect with other fitness minded people.
However, if you are just looking for a quick and easy place to keep track of your workouts, you may be better off with a pencil and paper.Common Misspellings
