The Push-Up Wars

This is a fun little app for iPhone, that I found on iTunes. I use the word "fun" loosely here, because doing push-ups may not exactly be fun to most people.

The idea of this app (or is it a game?) is to record video of your push-ups using the app. This ensures that the video is straight from the app - and not edited or enhanced in any way. That's a subtle way of saying that no cheating was involved. The video is uploaded to the website, where it can be viewed by other members, and flagged for any discrepancy.

The application also features direct integration to Facebook, where you can brag (or in my case.. lament) your achievements.

The application features Global Leaderboard (I am not going to be featured on that list - at least in this lifetime), and a ranking system that promotes you based on the number of push-ups completed. It is even integrated to the Game Center for achievements.

For $0.99 that's an amazing deal for any fitness addict. Just as Nike+ improved my running, this should help me build a strong upper body.

Anyone care to challenge me?
