Check out www.androidnetworkawards.com, a great way to spread the word about popular and cool apps by the Android community, enthusiasts, and users.

To commemorate the nomination, I have released WorkItOut 1.4 and finally fixed all of the bugs identified. Voting begins Monday, August 10th, and I will post more information as I come across it.

Thanks everyone for your support!

My full time job is as a project manager coordinating the development of an Android app.  I thought it would be neat to give myself a small project to learn more about the Android API and better understand what goes through the minds of the developers.  I am not a coder by any means, but creating something from scratch and having (or attempting to have) full control over it has been fascinating.

I decided to write this app mostly for myself, in the past I have used the notepad app on my sidekick, blackberry, G1 to keep track of only my most current weights for each exercise.  But this really didn’t give me the ability to see how far I’d come nor was it a motivation factor. 

I released the app on the marketplace just for kicks.  So far the app has over 6000 users and almost 20000 downloads.  I have received emails and suggestions from all over which have me very excited about the many possibilities and directions this little app could go. 

I am also new to the blogging world, so this is my attempt at sharing my experiences to whoever is out there reading.
