Sony Lifelog update: power enhancements, notifications for goals

Activity-tracking application Lifelog, developed by Sony originally for its Xperia devices but now available for other Android phones, has now been updated with a few new enhancements and of course the usual bugfixing. The update includes power consumption enhancements as well as receiving notifications every time you accomplish one of the goals that you set.

One of the problems that apps like Lifelog, which keeps track of your daily activities, has is that it consumes so much of your battery life. And of course since you also use a lot of other apps, the battery drain is a pain (rhyme intended), especially if you’re always mobile. Lifelog’s update ensures that the app consumers less power than its previous version so you could enjoy both the app and your phone more.

You can also now receive notifications on your smartphone whenever you’ve successfully completed goals that you’ve set for yourself. So if you've reached a running milestone or lost a certain number of calories through your activities, your smartphone will be there to congratulate and commend you. Other minor updates include extending support to your Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) account and a few bug fixes for the product support for the life-logging accessory, the SmartBand.

As we mentioned earlier, the Lifelog app has been made available for non-Xperia devices and as long as you have an Android device, you can download it from the Google Play Store. It does have some features that would only work on Xperia, like recognising your transportation and bicycle activities as well as changing the activity type on the app. But otherwise, it should look good on any smartphone or tablet running on Android 4.4 and up.
