Android Wear code hints at iOS compatibility.

This weekend I jumped a lot, and more than a few of these jumps ended in death: I was playing Mr Jump, a new iPhone and iPad game that rewards pattern identification and memorization like the best of the old-school platformers. The promise of Android Wear is that you can steal away a quick glance at your watch instead of rudely taking out your phone in the middle of a date or business meeting.Like many of you, I’m trying to shake off the winter doldrums, so I’ve discovered a few apps that help turn fitness into a quantifiable part of daily life.In the run-up to the election, it is to be expected that the budget promises us good things – after the election, we have more austerity to look forward to.

The game from France’s 1Button has already racked up 5 million downloads in just four days, and its simple in-app purchase and ad-based revenue model is earning its developers five-figure revenues on a daily basis, without having to resort to “pay-to-win” mechanics. The Apple Watch will drive awareness of smartwatches, so Google will undoubtedly want to capitalize. iPhone owners who want the same functionality without shelling out big bucks for Apple’s wearable will surely flock to Android Wear,” it said (http://www.t3.com/news/android-wear-source-code-suggests-it-could-be-compatible-with-ios). While Google Now puts a weather card on your watch, there are better alternatives that can give you more details, customization choices, and even turn the watch face into a mini weather app.

The player character, Mr Jump, moves of his own accord from left to right across a scrolling, simply colored blocky environment, and your goal is to avoid the various spikes, pitfalls and other dangers that impede his progress. Breeze prompts you with notifications if you have done something well, like walking more than usual early in the morning, and it reminds you if you’re behind your daily target.

However, there remain other issues; for example the Mayfair tax loophole, which costs the country £700 million each year, according to some estimates. You can also pay $0.99 to unlock the next level, or simply beat it the old-fashioned way of navigating each level’s hazards to unlock a new one. 12 levels are currently included, with more to come, according to the developers. Mr Jump co-creator Jérémie Francone says that the small developer (which includes co-founders Thomas Castel and Alexandre Konieczny, too) wanted to create an experience where they could make money, while also not making players feel like they had to pay to win. Whoever wins the next election, making the tax system work the way it should, so that those who benefit the most from our nation pay their fair share, rather than off-loading the costs onto the rest of us, must be a priority.

Weather Timeline is the perfect app to show your iPhone-using friends, because you can reply with a firm “No!” when they ask if it’s available for iOS. When you first use Lose It you have to input your actual and target weights, and the app suggests a fitness and diet regimen to help you reach your goal.

The weather card also smartly changes the color for the precipitation indicator, which makes it easy to just skim for the blue if you want to know the chance of getting any rain. The app prompts you to stay on track and applies a bit of peer pressure with a social networking feature that allows you to compare your performance with other users trying to achieve similar goals. It can also connect with third-party fitness tracking devices, and it has a database of common foods (with over 5 million entries) to make it easier to enter details of calorie content in the food you’re eating.

One of its many cards is visibility, which joins the barometer, precipitation, and a “feels like” temperature to give you one of the most complete pictures of the weather from an Android Wear watch. When installing you also get a rather neat watch face, which describes the weather conditions and gives you the current and projected temperature on top of a nature-themed background. Calorie Counter’s interface is a little cleaner than its rivals, and if you’re the kind of person who likes details, the analytics and performance graphs may suit you.

Google has the free Google Fit, a similar app for tracking your fitness and weight loss, but it’s limited in how much advice it gives you and how much information it tracks. While an initial download is free, plan on springing the $1.99 for the full version, which unlocks multiple background image options and lets you tweak the color components.

We’re also pretty certain we’ll hear more about new Android Wear capabilities at Google I/O this summer, which could further extend the non-timekeeping capabilities of your handy wearable.
