Best Apps for Health

We have a list of apps for people who love to maintain their healthy body in shape. Fitness tracker, calorie counter, online consultation app and so much more all in this list.

Check out below the best apps for health and the experience of people who have tried or used the app.

Health & Fitness Tracker


download logo fitbit icon svg eps png psd ai vector color free #logo #fitbit  #svg #eps #png #psd #ai #vector #color #free #art #ve… | Fitbit app, Fitbit  one, Fitbit

 Tracks all of my core health function.

Pros: “tracking resting heart. Resting heart rate is a very underrated measure and arguably, if you only have one metric to track, RHR is the way to go because you’ll get a good sense of where you are compared to your baseline. Moreover, Fitbit provides a Cardio Fitness score, which is good indicator to compare against others in your demographic.”

Cons: “you have to buy the hardware”

The Whoop App

230x0w 24

My favorite app right now is definitely the Whoop app linked to my fitness tracker.

Pros: “I really appreciated the high tech tracking of my sleep, but also has a large list of activities already loaded to select from to track my fitness output.”

Diabetes Manager


Diabetes:M - Blood Sugar Diary – Apps on Google Play

I also use the DiabetesM app to track my glucose levels from my Libre2 CGM. The only downside is that I would like to see DiabetesM build out their food tracking metrics, but overall I think it’s a great app!

MyFitnessPal: Calorie Counter - Apps on Google Play

 MyFitnessPal is one of the greatest meal monitoring applications out there, in my professional opinion. You may look up the nutritional content of millions of foods, including those you order at restaurants, in the food diary’s user-friendly database.

Pros: “With this software, users can set daily calorie and water intake targets, and the program will work backwards to determine the optimal daily calorie intake based on those targets. MyFitnessPal provides a comprehensive breakdown of your diet, whether your goal is to shed pounds or pack on muscle. A little bit of responsibility can go a long way toward helping you stick to your diet and exercise plans, and you’ll get a deeper awareness of the things you’re putting into your body. You can get reminders at various times throughout the day to help you remember to log your meals if you want to keep a close eye on your nutrition. If users need some extra motivation, they can always check out the forum.

For Better Sleep and Meditation


230x0w 290

Having a healthy lifestyle involves more than just watching what you eat and how often you hit the gym, in my professional opinion. Headspace is a straightforward and entertaining approach to meditation, which has been shown to have positive effects on mental health and well-being.

Pros: “In accordance with your current state of mind and daily routine, the app provides you with a selection of brief guided meditation sessions. The library has been carefully stocked with a wide range of relaxing and calming apps. Users can unwind for as little as a few minutes at a time, although longer sessions are available

Calorie Counter and Food Tracker


230x0w 291

“Some of the top health apps involve tracking. Lifesum does not charge a fee to use the application, in contrast to other health monitoring apps

Pros: “ It just needs to be downloaded to your smartphone. In the diary part of Lifesum, you may keep track of your dietary consumption and macronutrients. There are additional tabs for exercise, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you want to improve your fitness, the app also shows you how many calories you’ve burned.

Dean Lee88Vape

Online Therapy


230x0w 26

A web-based program and service called BetterHelp to give users access to high-quality psychotherapy.

Pros: “You are matched with a therapist after completing a questionnaire, which takes about 30 minutes. You can look through the directory and send messages to psychologists on the website if you don’t think making a phone conversation is the best course of action. To conduct video conferences, you should have a camera and a dependable Internet connection. You can select a counselor with the appropriate education and expertise based on the sort of therapy you’re looking for.”

Health and Wellness Platform

Generis: Nutrition & DNA


Generis’ goal is to use knowledge of genes to help people live better lives. An individual’s DNA powers this cutting-edge health app. The interface is simple to use and attractive on first inspection, which may explain why patients adore it.

Pros: “Generis offers guidance based on DNA, recommendations for exercise, food, nutrition, supplements, and more. With the aid of safe, precise, and useful instructions, this healthcare software seeks to aid users in understanding their DNA. The objective is to educate users so they can become the best versions of themselves. Generis may retrieve DNA information through 23 & ME and for the majority of uses of this healthcare software.

Users of the app who don’t have DNA information from 23 and Me or can still get recommendations based on their goals and lifestyle choices.”

Hydration Tracker

Water Reminder – Daily Tracker

230x0w 29

My favorite app for patients is called Water Reminder – Daily Tracker. With kidney stones, it is imperative that patients are adequately hydrating to reduce their risk of future stone formation.”

Pros: “This app allows the patient to input their personalized fluid intake goal and track it throughout the day. It sends them reminders(integrates with their Apple Watch) and allows the information to be graphed for easy viewing when I next see them in the office. There is a quick action app widget integrated to make logging their fluid intake even easier. If fluids other than water are ingested during the day, it also keeps track of nutrition info such as calories and caffeine. This app fully integrates into Apple Health.”

Cons: “The only con is that there is a paid subscription plan for some features such as notification sounds.”

Heart Health Tracker

Hello Heart

230x0w 30

Not many people would describe taking their blood pressure as a pleasant pastime, but with this Apple Watch software, you can do it handily and inconspicuously while going about your day. It also explains what those statistics may signify and how you’re doing, so you’ll know what to tell your primary care physician once the time comes. It monitors your blood sugar and exercise levels in addition to your blood pressure.

Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker


230x0w 31

Most of us don’t know too much about the ingredients in the meals we consume every day. Fooducate’s mission is to provide its users with information on food and nutrition so that they may make informed decisions about what to eat to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. The app is simple to use; all you have to do is scan the item you’re curious about, and it will give you a food score based on the meal’s health and nutrition profile, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of eating that food.

Health Info and Tracker

Health App by Apple

230x0w 32

This app usually already comes with your iPhone and it is a great way to track your fitness goals and progress. It’s a central place where you can view your activity data, set goals, see your progress over time, and more. It also allows you to see stuff like the number of steps you’ve taken for the day, your sleep activity, heart rate, and more. Since we have our phones on us most of the time, this is a really convenient way to track our health and fitness.

Dr. Sony Sherpa – Nature’s Rise

Online Therapy and Counseling


Talkspace Counseling & Therapy – Apps on Google Play

I’m a big fan of the app Talkspace. Getting professional help with mental health issues can be a costly, time-consuming endeavor, but this app makes it much more accessible. Not only are mental health resources more financially accessible than most traditional routes, but they are available 24/7, which is great for those with odd work hours or busy schedules.

Chris Stevenson – Virtual Reality Rental

Blood Sugar Monitor


230x0w 292

“My favorite health app is a blood sugar monitoring app called Veri. This app when paired with the blood sugar sensor, it can tell you what your blood sugar is at all times and how different meals affect your blood sugar. Keeping blood sugar low can help to maintain a healthy weight, support a healthy metabolism, keep inflammation low and reduce risk for diabetes.”

Pros: “It can help you understand how what you are eating is affecting your health in an extremely personalized way.”

Cons: “Cost. The blood sugar sensor is pricey. But it’s worth it to make a positive impact on your health!

Becca Romero – Little Life Nutrition

GPS Walking and Workout Tracker

Pros: “This software is simple to use and provides users with updates on their location-based progress.

I enjoy the app Glo. It has a variety of fitness classes, including live ones, and I love the filtering technology. You can filter by category, length, intensity, and my favorite, muscle groups.

Daivat Dholakia – Essenvia

Virtual Primary and Urgent Care


230x0w 36

HealthTap has been a real game changer for me. The thing they do so well is provide exactly the information you’re looking for when you’re googling your symptoms on WebMD and getting progressively more convinced that you have cancer.”

Pros: “They provide accurate information that actually fits the symptoms you’re having, and do more to give you actionable information and peace of mind than to cause your panic to spiral.

Dr. Flora Sadri – Psyclarity Health

Daily Habit Tracker

The Fabulous App

230x0w 295

When it comes to achieving optimal wellness in our lives, it’s all about building good routines, and The Fabulous App helps users do just that.

I’ve found the adjustments I’ve made to my dietary and activity regimen to be very sustainable, and I owe it all to this cutting-edge tool. I highly recommend The Fabulous App for busy people like myself who are looking to maximize their productivity.”

Pros: “It takes a scientific approach to helping people build good habits gradually, so users don’t get burnt out by making a bunch of changes at once.

Stephanie Venn-Watson 

Training Plans and Running Tracker


230x0w 296

I can say that at the moment this application suits me. Because it’s a kind of diary of my run that will let me track my progress and bring to light difficulties that arise. For example, I had a problem with a 3 km run. I could not cover this distance in less than 16 minutes. Thanks to the application, I found out that I spend a lot of energy running the first kilometer. And then my speed drops because I tire. I changed the workout and began to increase the tempo step by step. As a result, two weeks ago I ran 3 kilometers in 15 minutes and 30 seconds.

Pros: “It tracks time, speed, distance, and route via GPS

Cons: “Several of my workouts were not saved (perhaps this bug is already fixed)

Paul Harlamov – FitOver40

Weight Loss Tracker


230x0w 38

Noom has you covered whether you want to lose weight or just eat a healthier diet. You’ll start by answering questions about your weight, health objectives, way of life, and coaching preferences on a questionnaire. After that, a health coach will be assigned to you and work with you to achieve your objectives.

Alex Constantinou – The Fitness Circle

Wellness App


230x0w 39

There is one health app that has been a game changer for me and something that will likely be a staple for millions of people in the future. I’ve tried dozens of apps in the past but most do not make it into my daily routine.

Anura – developed by a company called is a 30 second wellness check using your smartphone.

I use it daily for a quick check up on my overall health and find that it’s a great reminder to be aware of my general wellness.

Overall the app is a long way ahead of the wearable competitors as this is not intrusive at all and allows for a contactless check in under a minute.”

Pros: “The basic app is free and provides a 30 second snapshot of your health via a video selfie. It’s able to detect heart rate, stress levels, skin age, and more.”

Cons: “The main downside would be not all features are available in the free app. It can record blood pressure and other biomarkers in the enterprise version.

Nick Farnborough – Clavis Social

7 Minute Workout App


230x0w 297

I am personally a big fan of the seven app. I find this app very useful and one of the apps that I use daily to keep myself healthy and fit with a 7 minutes workout. A fitness app called Seven encourages users to exercise for seven consecutive months for seven minutes each day. I’ve been using this app for a while and am seeing excellent results.

Overall, I would highly recommend the Seven App to anyone who is looking for a simple and effective way to get fit.”

Pros: “The workouts in this app are guided by beautiful illustrations and spoken instructions. It’s great for those who love fitness. I like this app because it is very convenient to use and it doesn’t take up much time. The workouts are also very effective and I have seen a lot of improvement in my physical fitness since I started using this app.

Abdullah Ali – Coding Pixel

Baby Tracker and Family Organizer


230x0w 298

I’d love to submit our app, Onoco for consideration in your piece about health apps. It’s a little bit of a different angle but I think it could be a fantastic opportunity to highlight to parents how apps such as ours can help them during the early days, weeks, months and even years to gain a deeper understanding of their child’s behaviours and standard routine to allow them to quickly identify any issues or problem areas and find quick solutions based on their inputted data. After all, so many of us do this with our personal fitness trackers, why not apply that same logic to our children to ensure we can properly advocate for them?

A number of our parents comment on how the app gives them peace of mind and helped save their sanity during their early parenting journey, and helped them to identify irregular patterns to show to healthcare visitors and find best possible solutions.

Jessica Higham – Onoco

Sleep Tracker


230x0w 40

My favorite sleep app is “Autosleep”. This application tracks everything from sleep duration to today’s readiness. The data is very useful and helps me plan better my training. For example, if my readiness score is low, then I prefer an easier workout instead.

The app gathers data from your sports watch or any sort of tracker that can measure heart rate, heart rate variability and blood oxygen. Based on this information, it draws its conclusions and visualizes data simply and understandably.

Pros: “Gathers all data in one place and draws conclusions

Cons: “Cons for some users would be that this application is not free. The cost is 4.99$, but in my opinion, it is worth it.

Dan Paul – Sportscalorie

Online Yoga Classes


230x0w 41

I like to use MyYogaTeacher which offers live yoga, breathwork, meditation, and energy classes with expert India-trained yoga teachers. They focus on physical asana work as much as the breathwork and meditation, which help people connect more deeply to themselves.”

Pros: “As a physician mom, l have a lot on my plate and the time flexibility l get from MyYogaTeacher, in addition to the very high quality of instruction, is what keeps me a committed customer.

The MyYogaTeacher app has a plethora of classes offered multiple times each day, which focus on breathwork, chanting, meditation, stress reduction, improving sleep, and boosting calm and positivity, and they are all live, meaning they are not recorded. There are also many choices and many different instructors.

Plus if you like the group class exercises a lot, you can consider taking once-weekly private classes (one hour each) with a highly trained instructor and learn privately at an affordable rate (actually, for the same price you will pay to take group classes only).”

Cons: “The only downside is that classes on the app are virtual, so if you want to work on your stress using physical techniques (like massage therapy), that’s not possible.

Carolyn Kamii – Savitha Elam-Kotiil, MD

Brain Detox App


230x0w 42

For mental health, a really great app to consider is Neurocycle. It was developed by Dr. Caroline Leaf who is a neuroscientist that has done 30 years of research and written many books that help people conquer mental health issues.

It’s pretty powerful when an anxious person can help their thoughts go from catastrophizing to calm wisdom. I love to encourage my counseling clients to try a 63 day neurocycle and report back.”

Pros: “The app allows you to walk through guided meditation that helps you intentionally unravel unhealthy patterns and thoughts and create new neural pathways that can help change the way your brain processes things.

230x0w 300

KrowdFit is on a mission to make every single person in the United States “wellthier.” Members connect their wearable or third-party app (ex: fitbit, Garmin, Apple Health, Peloton, Calm, MyFitnessPal, etc) and are entered into weekly, monthly, and quarterly cash drawings.

To date, KrowdFit has awarded over $2 million— but the cash rewards are only part of the story. According to their user data, KrowdFit has increased the average member’s activity level by 30% which equates to 4.8 more days of activity per month. In addition, 62% of KrowdFit’s users have increased their physical activity, 67% report better sleep quality, and 57% have lost weight. In short – cash reward work.

Pros: “The app offers cash to users who consistently log their daily activities in an effort to incentivize building healthy habits.

Concurrently, KrowdFit recently partnered with Calm and MyFitnessPal to launch the first wellness rewards Mastercard to further expand upon its company mission.”

Sleep Cycle

Sleep Cycle - Crunchbase Company Profile & Funding

I believe sleep is the foundation of full-body health and wellness. You need quality sleep for energy, physical performance, focus and learning, creativity, emotional regulation, immunity, weight management, and so much more. That’s why I use Sleep Cycle.

Sleep Cycle is a versatile app that lets you track and analyze your sleep patterns. This data helps you make better decisions about your personal sleep hygiene, for example: setting your sleep schedule, monitoring caffeine consumption, starting an exercise routine, reducing blue light exposure, timing your meals, etc.

The app is easy to use—you don’t need a smartwatch or fancy censors to set it up. It uses your phone’s microphone to pick up on your movements and breathing, tracking your sleep cycles.

Pros: “No smartwatch or equipment needed (Though you can integrate your step data from Google Fit)”

Cons: “Tracking through sound isn’t’ as accurate as using pulse monitoring”

EWG Healthy Living App

230x0w 44

My family and I have changed to a healthy and clean lifestyle over the last decade or so because of health issues. We make about 99% of the food we eat at home and are super careful about ingredients in both the things we eat and the things we use on our bodies or in our house.

Over the last 10 years we’ve learned a ton about what is good for you and what is very unhealthy and toxic but we’re still not doctors or scientists so we don’t always know everything about every ingredient. That is why we love using the EWG Healthy Living App because you can scan products to see a rating and detailed description of the ingredients in the product.

Pros: “It helps loads when you’re trying to decide what product to get that is the healthiest for you.”

Cons: “The only con we’ve found so far with the app is that not every single product out there is listed in their database and some products have limited information. The good thing though is that you can submit any new product so they can add it to their site.”

IBS Symptoms Manager


230x0w 45

I am Dr. Farahat, a Gastroenterologist doctor and the founder of (a gut health website with nearly 400 evidence-based articles and around 200K monthly pageviews). Also, I am an IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) sufferer.

I am writing this email because I think the app I use for my condition is a goldmine for patients like me with Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The app is called Monash University FODMAP Diet.

For me, and many patients with IBS is a lifesaver as it helped me with my everyday diet choices, and it has led to a dramatic improvement in my IBS symptoms as well as my patients & blog readers.

Pros: ” The App also contains Food dairy, a list of all certified low FODMAP food delivery services in the USA, and a list of international dietitians.”

Cons: “The app is paid. However, you will need to pay a small one-time fee ($8).”

Clinical Decision Support Resource


230x0w 303

this is used by healthcare professionals mostly, and is NOT a free app, unless you gain access through a healthcare organization (hospital/medical school etc) that pays for institutional access. It is essentially Wikipedia for healthcare. It contains updated information in a very streamlined and thoughtful way (description, epidemiology, signs/symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and summary) for several conditions written and edited by medical experts in each condition, disease state, or field. Several physicians use this resource on the go for diagnosis and treatment of common and rare conditions, and patients can obtain updated and factual information about any condition they’re dealing with here.

Manager, Talent Management Digital Strategy - GoodRx | Built In LA

Excellent pharmaceutical apps (for patients and healthcare professionals respectively) that provide updated information about any medical on the market, including generic options as well as excellent savings and deals that patients can benefit from. From a physician’s standpoint, this app can provide useful information regarding alternative (but equally efficacious) medications that are more affordable for your patients. You can also find alternatives for certain common conditions (nausea, vomiting, tinnitus etc you name it) that you never knew existed, including risks, adverse events, side effects, and blackbox warnings that may apply to your patient.
