Using the aptly titled CouchPotatoApp, you can keep track of how many calories you are burning simply by being alive and in ordinary circumstances such as reading a book or sitting in a meeting. Forever gone are the long, sweaty hours on the exercise bike at the gym!

You don’t have to sweat to burn your calories. Use CouchPotatoApp for android to track and record couch potato activities.

View history of your activities and see how much calories you’ve burned. Run in the background while using your android. Sleeping, watching TV, working on the computer, sitting in meetings… Track all these activities and more.

What are you waiting for? Continue on to the application thread to feel better about your sedentary lifestyle TODAY!

Note: Find comfort in your insalubrious ways with caution; XDA-Developers cannot be held responsible for your quadruple bypass.
