The App Store and the Google Play store can be somewhat overwhelming with the influx of apps being introduced in recent years. There are over 2 million apps available for download, so navigating amongst them can be difficult.
If you’re a fitness fanatic or just looking to get more in shape, there are plenty of apps that can help you stay on track. From calorie counters to workout apps, everything you need can be found in your phone’s store.
We’ve searched through the store to find the apps that we believe to be the best for monitoring your health and fitness.
My Fitness Pal Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker
This calorie counting app lets you input all the food you eat throughout the day, calculating all the number of calories you’ve consumed. You can then input your daily exercise, and the app will subtract your calories burned during your workout from the calories you’ve consumed through food.

My Fitness Pal holds you accountable for the food you’re eating and puts you on the right track to a healthy diet.
