Trackers and tracking apps. If you’ve got even a passing interest in health and fitness you’ve probably seen or used some of them. Personally I’ve used a lot of them over the past few years and currently wear an UP 360. I’ll admit I’m not as good at tracking food as I could be, but I do try.
One of the more popular tracking apps for mobile is MapMyRide (which also appears as MapMyRun and a few other names, but is the same app). I started using it for tracking my cycling activity, but it can also track a very broad range of other activities including walking, hiking, running, weight lifting and a whole lot more.
However a friend of mine spotted one activity buried in the options that piqued our interest:
The only possible interpretation for that is that the app wants to track your sexual activity. Of course this opens up a whole range of questions like where on earth would you put the phone to track it and how would you even handle tracking it.
“Sorry darling I need to log this”
Talk about a buzz kill!
I’m not sure why the app developers put it in there, but at least they didn’t overthink it too much, because if you do attempt to track “intimacy” (and of course you would out of curiosity, wouldn’t you?) you will get a message about how it can’t really track it properly.. though it will try..
So you end up with this kind of event being shared with your contacts (if you share via MapMyRide):
You can even add notes and share it via Facebook and Twitter!
