    Just wondering if anyone knows if it's out there? I can go to the site on my BB, but it doesn't seem to work very well, as in, it's not too mobile-friendly.

    Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    That would be a reall interesting concept! I wonder if there is a diet tracking app, or software... hmmm

    I know WeightWatchers uses the point system so it would be nice to be able to enter in a food item or be able to search an online database to find point info

    My girlfriend is into all this stuff... if I can find something for when she gets her Pearl, she would be thrilled!

    All I found so far is this... Ascendo Fitness for BlackBerry - Medical BlackBerry Software - Crackberry Store

    After some searching... I found an old app someone developed and then had to remove due to legal threats from Weight Watchers. I then proceeded to search and search until I found this link (New Page 1)

    You can DL and install from there and lemme know how it goes It is a WW Calculator!

    By any chance... can you please post screen shots?! I have not used the app, but want to see what it is like!

    If you have not done a screen shot from your Berry before...

    Get JL_cmdr
    Plug berry into USB
    Run cmdr and take screen shot
    Load to imageshack (or some image hosting site)
    Post image here!!

    First of all, you need to get this little small app for your PC. It allows you to take screen shots and do other things on your Berry!!

    JL_Cmder Javaloader Utility

    Then you connect your Berry, open the app you want on the Berry (as it will take a screen shot of whatever is showing)... then open JL_cmdr and follow the prompts to take a screen shot.

    (WARNING : First time through, be careful because you can wipe your device if you hit the wrong buttons... but they warn you as well, so do not worry!)

    This screen shot is opened in Paint, so go to File > Save As...

    Save the screen shot and load to ImageShack® - Image Hosting Accounts are free... and you can use for a lot of images. Then get the URL for the image and post it in the forum!!

    Not too hard, huh? And you can do a lot with it

    I'm so glad that I found this, but I'm fairly new to all of this and don't understand how to get it downloaded to your bb. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Very cool find. I'm still new to all of this. I feel like (and am I guess) a total noob to the BB world.

    You follow the link I provided... then go to the link for the WW Calculator or whatever they call it on the website. I am not sure if you can install directly to your Berry if you go there from your device or not. Most likely you are gonna DL a .zip file to your computer, unzip it and run DesktopManager to install...

    I am interested in the calculator. How do I download it? Do I save it to a file on my pc and then open via manager? Or do I download it directly to my bb? My computer does not recognize the program. Sorry I am not as skilled with this as I would like to be.

    Be aware....the WW points calculator does not give you true point values. Something is wrong with the algorithm. I have an original WW points calculator, and compared its point value to the one I downloaded on my BB, and they came up with two different point values for the same food. Just a heads up!

    Thanks for the notice!! I guess that could be a really bad thing!!

    I did not mean to mess up anyone's Weight Watcher, just trying to share the application love... but that is a good heads up!!

    Care to share more details? I am wondering how far off it is? And what side it errors on, etc!

    The formula for calculating points is as follows:

    Points = a/50 + b/12 -c/5

    Let a = calories
    Let b = fat grams
    Let c = fiber grams (max 4)

    standard rounding applies (i.e. +/- .5)

    Just plug this into excel and make yourself a little spreadsheet.
    Hope this helps
