There’s even the possibility to listen to your favorite songs while using the Workout Trainer if you feel more comfortable.
Second health app on our list today is known as . We like how it offers users a bar-code scanner that can be used when you’re in a supermarket, for instance, and want to know which food is healthy and which isn’t.

Fooducate is another great health app for this year. Thanks to it you have a way to know if what you are eating contains too much fat, too much sugar and so on.
