Â Livescape — one of the top rated health and fitness apps for Windows Phone — has recently added support for MicrosoftÂ® HealthVaultÂ® as well as a new version specifically for Windows Phone 7.5 (a.k.a. “Mango” release). The app typically costs $4.99 but is currently made available at the discounted price of $2.99 for a limited time, during the initial launch of the Windows Phone Mango devices!
HealthVaultÂ® integration opens up a new world of possibilities for mobile health tracking. The added connectivity allows Livescape to synchronize with wireless weight scales, body composition readers, and blood pressure cuffs, as well as the ability to work with other HealthVault-enabled solutions. Please visit this page for a detailed explanation on some of the other benefits made possible with HealthVaultÂ® when used with Livescape.
Microsoft’s Sean Nolan has also written a great blog post about Livescape’s new functionality over on MSDN’s Family Health Guy blog. Using your phone to stay in shape has never been this fun!
