Carrying on from our post earlier this morning about weight loss apps, it has come to our attention that there are currently no apps of this kind for the Samsung Smart TV. We are still confused as to why this is, as this is the main device that people use for a weight loss program in the home. We just hope that this will change soon.
The only weight loss apps available are those on smartphones and tablets, and although they are good at what they do, they will never give you what you would get from a TV. How many times have you tried to follow a workout routine on an iPhone or Android handset? It is so hard to keep motivated while trying to watch a video or guide on a 4-inch or smaller screen.
Samsung, or the app developers are certainly missing a great opportunity here. There is so much potential for such an app, instead of pointless ones — and there are a number of them. Just imagine how good it would be if you have you Samsung Smart TV on and then using a weight loss app, as well as using twitter at the same time?
There is a possibility that such an app could be used in conjunction with Twitter, as you could do a workout with a friend at the same time at another location. You could both be in front of you TV in different locations and just before you begin you can inform your friends. Then when you have a short break you can chat with their friend and talk about your progress.
This is a great way to motivate each other, but there is one thing missing — an app. We ask that Samsung get in touch with developers and try to come up with a solution. If they need convincing, they only need to look at how high sales are of DVD workouts are after the holiday season.
Would you like to see a workout app on the Samsung Smart TV?
