As a modern woman, you have personal, and often even professional commitments that often take a toll on your health. The lamest excuse – not enough time. Unsurprisingly, the answer to that is technology. More specifically, your smartphone. In recent times, several fitness apps have made their foray to ease tracking and addressing health problems. These apps are easy to use, customisable, and also support medical treatment, possible workouts, and even diet regimes.
Here’s our pick of free apps that you can install on your smartphone – whether Android or iOS – and try out:
