10 iPad Apps for Health and Fitness

by Nicholas Kolakowski
Apple's iPad already features a wide variety of apps for both productivity and entertainment, but a growing number will also let you keep track of personal health and wellness. While no substitute for an actual doctor, the iPad's large screen and multitouch capabilities offer a simple and colorful way to count calories, graph blood pressure over a period of weeks, or look up possible causes for that disconcerting growth. While still relatively small, expect this category of iPad apps to expand rapidly in coming months. More than 1 million iPads have sold since the device's April 3 release, suggesting that the consumer tablet market is a viable one. In response to that success, a number of competitors, including Dell and Hewlett-Packard, are planning their own tablet offerings; count on those to offer a health care component, as well.
