10 best fitness apps for Android

App-ly yourself

The basic app is free but upgrading to the '+' version gets rid of the ads.

7. MyFitnessPal Calorie Counter (free)

Counting calories isn't terribly exciting, but it's a great way to really be aware of what you're eating. Couple that with a daily calorie limit and you could find yourself losing weight and getting healthier in no time.

MyFitnessPal Calorie Counter makes this easy. There are over three million items in its food database, so logging what you eat and drink is a breeze and if there's anything missing you can always create custom foods.

Plus it lets you track exercise, view progress reports and even use a barcode scanner to log food instantly.

8. RunKeeper (free)


RunKeeper is a fairly conventional app for tracking runs, but it does what it sets out to.

You can control your music through the app during a workout, track walking, cycling and more in addition to running.

Plus you can view stats and progress reports and get audio coaching as you go to keep you motivated.

Better yet, when you're done RunKeeper even makes bragging easy as you can upload your route and statistics to Facebook, Twitter and the RunKeeper website, ready to be mocked or congratulated as appropriate.

9. JEFIT Pro (£3.21)

JEFIT Pro is a comprehensive workout and fitness tracker, allowing you to create and perform workout routines.

You can then log your results and view charts of your progress to give you an idea of how well you're progressing over time.

JEFIT Pro also includes over 1300 exercise instructions complete with animations and tips to teach you new exercises and ensure you're doing them safely and correctly.

Most of the exercises rely on equipment though, so you're going to need a gym membership to get the most out of it.

10. Noom Weight Loss Coach (free)

Noom Weight Loss Coach

Noom Weight Loss Coach does many of the same things as MyFitnessPal. You can log foods to track your calorie intake and log workouts and weight loss progress.

Plus there's a pedometer feature which can track how much you walk or run during the day.

But Noom also puts a lot of emphasis on motivation, with health and wellness articles added daily, giving you an extra reason to launch the app.

There are also various goals for you to work towards, making it easier to stick to your fitness plans long term.
