16 Best Health and Fitness Apps of 2016

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Spotify—you likely know about the big-name apps that help you connect with loved ones, share photos or listen to music.

But what about the apps that help you improve your health?

According to a recent study, participants who used fitness apps were much more active compared to nonusers. Current users also had a lower body mass index.

The study's authors believe apps help people overcome barriers like a lack of understanding or organization, which leads to better exercise habits. In other words, fitness apps guide people who may not be motivated or knowledgeable enough to improve their health on their own.

If you're interested in adding a few apps to your phone this year, here are some to consider.
