G1 Android and iPhone Apps to Keep You Fit and Healthy

As the saying goes, “Well, at least you’ve got your health!” The simple truth of the matter is that it is important to maintain a fit and healthy body, and if the iPhone or the Android powered G1 (a.k.a. Google phone) are of help in this regard, why not take advantage of it?

There are two things that you need to look out for when the cold seasons arrives: great discounts on cool Christmas gifts (like the Apple iMac Smart Xchange), and the flu. Traditionally, all you could do was keep a vigilant eye out for people that present flu symptoms and just stay away from them. Zicam Tools has released a new software application that can be run on Google’s OS, the Android – this application is called Zicam Cold and Flu Companion and works by presenting you with health statistics for any given zip code. For example how many flu infected people there are, what types of symptoms are most widespread in a certain area, and several other cold and flu news. For the time being the application is available only for the Android, but Zicam will release an iPhone version in the near future.

In the iPhone’s case, the apps we’ve seen recently place a greater emphasis on keeping fit, rather than preventing the device’s user from contracting some form of disease. There are three different app categories that we can focus on: iPhone apps that will help you lose weight, or at least maintain a constant weight; apps that you can use in your daily fitness exercises; and apps that you can use when running, walking or bike riding.

In the “keep an eye on your weight” category we have apps such as Weightbot (which has stunning visual and sound effects), Restaurant Nutrition (which provides nutritional facts related to some 37 restaurant chains in the US), and Calorie Tracker (an app designed by the Livestrong Foundation that monitors how much calories you take in).

In the “fitness exercises” category we have apps such as iFitness (a virtual personal trainer), GymGoal Lite (helps you attain fitness related goals), and iPump Total Body (intensify your daily workouts with this app’s 4 preset levels of fitness training).

If you are the kind of person that would rather go biking, running or walking, as opposed to going to a gym, then you will appreciate iPhone apps such as RunKeeper, FitView and Fitnio.

If you would like to get the Zicam Cold and Flu Companion, a download location is available here.
