New mobile app helps Juan lose pounds


I've encountered dozens of apps and games that help people lose weight, but this is the first one that doesn't require you to break a sweat. Run Juan Run can be played in a comfortable easy chair or even flat on your back.

The game follows pot-bellied Juan on his quest to slim down. Like most middle-aged and overweight guys, Juan has a wife who thinks he should be working harder to drop those extra pounds. She gets him started by calling in a crane to lift him out of their house.

Juan's road to fitness takes him through a number different levels. You follow him jogging through snowflakes and past icebergs, doing push-ups in the gym and driving past the pyramids. Is that drive part of his diet, or  is he on his way to his favorite taqueria?

The game requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and it's optimized for the iPhone 5. You can check it out in the iTunes app store.
