Kindle Fire Quick Alert: Free App for day is $3.99 Food and Diet Tracker

Am back and working on a blog entry but wanted to do this alert for the one-day free app

SparkPeople's Diet and Food Tracker is a popular diet tracker in its Website version, where it is free.

  The Android app used to be free too, but they started charging $3.99 at some point and there were quite a few upset people who wrote 1-star reviews about that charge.

  Also, as with so many Android app venders (and all of the ones on Facebook) they want access to your contact list in the "Permissions" section.  That's a consideration too.  Add that you have to register with the website (but that part seems normal to me).

  Add that to use it, you have to be in a WiFi area if you don't have 3G as you do on phones.

  However, a lot of 1-star customer reviewers say it's not worth it for $4 but if it were free, they'd download it.  Others are unhappy because they're under 18, and you have to be 18 to use it.

  So this is just an alert for those of you who might be interested and want to download it on the day it's free, in case you do want to use it later.

  So, that's the alert. Meant to send it earlier, but even the east coast has the night hours remaining, for those who are interested.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
