What computer apps do you use?

I'm thinking here of apps like f.lux, that changes the intensity of the screen light to match up with the levels of natural light, and other things like it. So for those paleo people who use computers frequently for school or work, what programs or apps do you use that support the lifestyle?

+1 for introducing me to f.lux. That is one of the coolest things I've seen in awhile.

I used to use cronometer a lot but I found (as many others have) that it wasn't quite configurable enough and many times made recommendations on nutritional targets that I didn't buy (not to mention the nutritional content of certain foods was bunk).

For example, when I threw some (grass-fed) butter into my daily consumption, it immediately flagged my trans fat consumption as being over the limits -- huh?

So, in short, I wrote my own nutritional "diary" application so that I could customize my experience as much as possible. Paleo is about as DIY as any dietary regimen, so why not?

f.lux and cron-o-meter on my home computer (mac) and work computer (windows). Cron-o-meter, Instant Heart Rate, and Pedometer on my android phone.

I have been Paleo for saveral years and I have created a free Android app with the Paleo community in mind. It is called Sleep Well Night Light and it turns your phone into a night light that uses red (non-blue) light so that it minimizes sleep disruption. You can also minimize the light from the night light by automatically dimming the screen after a configurable timeout and then using touch or a voice command to brighten the screen. You can also display a clock and/or fun messages.

You can search for it on Google Play with the term "com.elegancetech.nightlight"
