    RunKeeper

    Platform: Android

    Price:

    I have about seven weeks until my next half-marathon, and after RunKeeper support appeared on my Pebble smart watch, I installed the latest version of RunKeeper on my HTC One.

    RunKeeper is a powerful fitness application, and last year I signed up as an Elite member so I could do even more with it online. It works well on Android, and tracks just about everything I could want.

    AMC Theatres

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    My family loves to go to the movies, and a local AMC theater near us has premium leather recliners with the ability to pick your seat before you get to the theater. With Iron Man 3 kicking off last weekend, and many more great movies coming soon, I find the AMC Theatres to be an essential app.

    AMC Theatres

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    I pay the yearly fee for AMC Stubs, and this gives me the ability to purchase tickets from my iPhone 5 with no fees, while also earning Stubs Rewards to then buy snacks or movie tickets with reward dollars. I also like that the application includes RunPee support so you can figure out when it is advised to make a bathroom or popcorn refill trip out of the movie.

  • The Gallery page layout ...

    needs improvement. I would like to be able to scroll all the way to the bottom of a picture and its caption (especially since they are both growing "taller" than they were in the beginning) without scrolling all the way BACK UP to the top to go to the next frame.

    Not only are there no "previous | next" links at the bottom, but what APPEARS to be a pair of such links, the arrows at the left and right, are actually to the previous/next GROUP of frames.
