    "apps can be great and turn our phones into amazing multitaskers, but a scale, I don't think so. If you want to place objects on your phone to weigh, go ahead, but it just seems like a recipe for disaster and I can't afford to replace my phone. "

Did you know?

Did you know that Elvis Presley was a big fan of the Sleeping Beauty diet? Basically, this diet promotes sleep as a way to lose weight. In some extreme cases, people are being encouraged to take sedatives so they could sleep for up to 18 hours a day. This trend’s basic rationale- sleep when you’re hungry to avoid eating - is widely embraced by the pro-anorexia community. Thus, Sleeping Beauty diet is also called Narcorexia. Unlike many of today's celebrities who watch their weight closely, Elvis was known for his bizarre diet as also his style for music and fashion. But unlike before, there are digital scale apps that you can download for free now. Reportedly, Elvis has a penchant for food and fizzy drinks. One of his most famous favorites is the peanut butter, bacon and banana sandwich now referred to as The Elvis, which has been recreated on menus across the world in homage to the King of Rock and Roll. His other favorite snack called the Fool’s Gold Loaf by a restaurant in Denver, Colorado is filled with peanut butter too and bacon, only substituting grape jam for banana. One night, Elvis allegedly flew 800 miles in his private jet, all for a Fool’s Gold Loaf. Elvis also has a strong liking for what is known now as Elvis’ party meatballs which are simply meatballs wrapped in bacon. 

Another weight loss effort he did was eating nothing but jelly made of black cherry soda and bananas for weeks. It was then that a Las Vegas doctor recommended that Elvis go into a medically induced coma for a few days to stop himself from eating. If you're planning on replicating any of these recipes, there are scale apps for android that you can use in measuring the weight of small objects. However, they can only provide you estimation so you just have to choose the best digital scale for you. But beware, some experts said that Elvis' unhealthy diet eventually contributed to his untimely death in 1977 due to heart attack.

    "While I had low expectations for the app it instead blew right by them to being awful in all aspects. It's buggy, highly inaccurate (as in I could guess how much things weighed more accurately than this scale app does) and I'm not even sure simulatotion is even a word. I was just using it out of desperation while cooking and I really cannot say anything nice about it, avoid avoid avoid."

    "I was fixing my car when my son said that he wants me to try this scale app. It was weird to believe that a phone can weigh an object, but I remembered that there is a thing on mobile phones that can detect weight, that I don't remember lol. But I tried weighing a nail that I got from my utility box, I don't know the exact weight of the nail but seems to be close to the measurement."
