ARGUS – Motion Tracker Fitness update (Free)

What’s it about? Keep track of your exercises with fitness app ARGUS, which focuses on motion tracking to measure your activity.

What’s cool? ARGUS is one of those fitness apps that goes beyond just letting you log your exercises, and instead works to keep track of all your activity in a given day in order to help you know precisely how much exercise you’re getting, and how much you need. The app uses your iOS device’s technology to track your steps and sleep, and also lets you track different, more intense workouts. You can also use the app as a food diary by logging what you eat using your device’s camera, and supports wearable devices to give you an even more in-depth look at your fitness. ARGUS’ latest update adds a more streamlined user interface and greater support for the M7 motion tracking chip found in the iPhone 5s.

Who’s it for? If you’re a user of Smartsheet on the web, you’re going to want the Android version to go with it.

What’s it like? Create and access more documents with Google Drive and Dropbox.

Q (kyoo) ($1.99)

What’s it about? Task manager Q focuses on simplicity and elegance to bring users a handy to-do list without a lot of clutter.

What’s cool? The developers behind task management app Q believe an app that is meant to help you increase your productivity shouldn’t be hard to operate, so Q’s biggest element is how easy it is to use. The app uses gesture-based controls to allow users to edit and alter their to-do lists, and it streams out unnecessary buttons and toolbars from its interface. The app’s simplicity also means it can be operated with one hands, but it includes more complex features, like the ability to nests tasks under other tasks in order to make it easy (an organized) to create more in-depth lists.
