Every now and then, I like to try out a mobile app that I think might help me get back in shape or at least trim off a few pounds. Personally, as I age closer toward middle-age and upward, it would be nice to have resources that inspire and motivate me to get to the gym and work out, to walk that extra mile every day, or to eat healthier.Here at MakeUseOf, we’ve covered many health apps over time, such as the WellBook health tracking tool. As far as mobile apps, Sharninder covered the Lose It calorie intake calculator for the iPhone. In this article I’d like to review 4 of the top health care phone apps from the Android Market.

4 Top Health Care Phone Apps for Your Android
Unlike most other people, I don’t usually do the whole “New Years resolution” thing in January. Instead, once summer rolls around and June arrives, I feel very motivated to get back in shape so that I can really enjoy our weekend camping and hiking trips without feeling like I’m completely out of shape. The following mobile apps really inspired me to maintain my health, and I’m positive they’ll do the same for you.


Calorie Counter

The first app is a very cool calorie counter that goes far beyond any mobile calorie counter that I’ve ever seen. On the Android Market, it is simply called Calorie Counter. The application lets you look up just about any food imaginable in order to learn the calorie and nutritional content. Obviously, having such convenient access to nutritional information will help you make much better informed food choices, and of course it will greatly improve your eating habits.This app has every method of searching you could think of, including areas for general food, popular and supermarket brands, restaurant chains and even the ability to scan the barcode on food packages and instantly get information on its nutritional content. The application goes even further than just serving as a reference. You can keep a calorie log in the form of a “food diary,” you can keep track of how and when you exercise, and of course it helps you to track your weight over time so that you can monitor your progress.In terms of nutrition, the app only provides the basics, such as protein, fat, carbs, fiber, sugar and of course calories. You may not get the mineral and vitamin content, but in all honesty the information that is provided is really all you need to make healthy food choices.The food diary is an awesome feature that lets you quickly add whatever food you eat during the day. A major problem with many online calorie trackers is that you must log into the Internet in order to log your calories, you weight and other statistics. However, with this application installed on your Android, you will no longer have to worry about whether you’ll remember to log your daily calories when you get home. Just pull out your phone and add the entry to your Food Diary, and you’re done!

First Aid
The next health care phone app that I’d like to cover is aptly called First Aid. One of the first rules of staying health is avoiding injury, and to avoid injury you must stay safe. But how do you protect the health of your family members when tragedy strikes? Do you know the Heimlich maneuver? Do you know CPR? If you have First Aid by your side, you’ll never have to wonder if you’ll know what to do when something horrible happens.The Android app provides large categories that are very easy to navigate through to find the condition that you’re looking for. For example, under Life Saving Procedures you’ll find a number of skills that can save lives in many life-threatening situations like a choking or a heart attack.The instructions are brief and to the point, with clear and accurate images that portray how the current step is supposed to look. You’ll find that the instructions are very easy and quick to get at, and the instructions are simple and to the point. Whenever you need help knowing what to do, you can rest at ease when you have First Aid installed on your phone.Before you get started, make sure to calculate your Recommended Daily Intake (RDI). You can do this by long pressing the RDI chart you see in the Daily Summary found in your Food Diary. Based on your age, weight, height, gender, diet goal, and activity level, your RDI will be determined. Of course, take into consideration that the calorie number this gives you isn’t exact. Use it as a guide and a tool to better health.
