Expert explains best fitness-themed apps
BOSTON — Apple may have trademarked the now-iconic phrase “there’s an app for that,” but the surge of fitness-themed applications for all smartphones are proving that may be true.
Several free apps for iOS and Android devices are on the market, allowing users to help keep New Year’s resolutions, whether it be a commitment to working out more to curbing calorie intake, to kicking the habit.
AT&T’s Amy McCartney demonstrated a few of the apps with the EyeOpener’s Jim Lokay.
