Medical Apps for Android Users

I've got a confession to make: I am an Android fan. I have owned several iPhones, and they were okay, but Samsung's top-of-the-line smartphones are fantastic! So, here are some of the best medical applications for people who own Android phones.

Medical Apps for Android Users

1. Fooducate

This app aims to help people lose weight by eating healthy food, giving them the possibility to track their workouts, calories, and more. Fooducate can scan hundreds of thousands of product barcodes, grading each one of them according to the quality of their ingredients. You can also use this app to get free health, diet, and weight loss tips from nutrition professionals.

The app isn't 100% free, though; you will need to pay about $5/month to unlock all its features, which include a great variety of diet plans, gluten-free diets, priority support, and even pet food recommendations.

2. Google Fit

Truth be told, this app has a much longer name: "Google Fit: Health and Activity Tracking". It won't cost you a dime, and it has been built by Google in collaboration with World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) with the goal of helping you live a healthier and more active life.

The app has introduced the concept of "Heart Points", which can be earned by engaging in moderate physical activity, and double for intensive activities such as running. According to WHO and AMA, people need to walk briskly about 30 minutes per day to stay healthy and increase their overall well-being.


"JEFIT Workout Tracker, Weight Lifting, Gym Log App" is one of the best options for people who love working out. It includes 1,300 exercises which are presented using detailed HD videos, and the fact that it has over eight million active installations says something about its quality.

The application uses the freemium model, making some of its features available for free and asking money for others. Still, if you want to get access to a wide range of exercises for all ages, and to be a part of its supportive community, the app is well worth purchasing.

4. Strava

If you lack motivation, "Strava: Track Running, Cycling & Swimming" may be the perfect solution. The app allows people to track their fitness by recording their routes, bike trails, swim pace, elevation gained, calories burned, etc.

Ambitious individuals may push themselves with monthly challenges, competing with people all over the world. The app includes a social component as well, allowing its users to share their progress with friends and followers.

5. You Are Your Own Gym

Yes, you really are! This app is based on Mark Lauren's best-selling book and includes over 200 different body weight exercises. Mark has trained almost 1,000 US Special Forces operatives for over 10 years, and now he has included a huge set of Tabatas, Supersets, Stappers, Interval Sets, and Ladders into his app.

The application allows people to get into shape without needing more than 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity per day. Some circuits need to be purchased, but the app includes enough free content to help you get started.
