Ten top mobile apps for getting fit in 2016

We spend too much time staring at our phones - just ask the pedestrians we almost walk into on a daily basis. If scrolling through your phone's news feed or swiping right were Olympic sports, we'd definitely take home a medal. But in reality, the only things getting a workout are our thumbs. That's not to say your phone can't help you lead a healthier, happier life. You just need to know the right apps to download.

The health and fitness website Greatist.com tested hundreds of health and fitness apps to come up with its list of the best of 2016. The website looked at whether an app had been highly rated by users, provided something unique and was easy to use. It also looked at reliability, whether it drained a smartphone's battery and whether the app had the ability to "grow and innovate."
