Singapore is a great city, as you have the luxury of choosing from a myriad of restaurants, offering different types of cuisines. However, all this delicious food comes at a cost, as they have a lot of calories.
When you are busy with your life, going to work, meeting your friends, and spending time with your family members, you tend to forget to keep track of your health and fitness. Luckily, you don’t have to think about these things actively, as there are apps on your smartphone which gets the job done.
Here is a review of the top 3 health and fitness mobile apps in Singapore:
Healthy 365 by Health Board Promotion is the number one app in the Google Play Store. Upon opening the app for the first time, you get to learn how to use some of its important features. Before you can start using this app, you need to enter your details and create a profile.
The app is user-friendly, as you can access the important options of the main menu from the bottom of the app. In the main page of the app, you get all the information you need about your health and fitness. For example, it displays the number of steps you took, the health points you acquired, rewards, and deals and discounts. At the same the, you also get to know about the latest challenges, along with what is new in the app.
Although the user-interface looks dated, it is still responsive. You can use the “Diet Journal,” which allows you to enter details about all your meals. If you get any products from Healthy 365, such as discount codes or coupons, you don’t have to enter them manually. The app uses your camera to scan the barcode or QR code, for automatic entry.
In the second spot on the Google Play Store is Calm – Meditate, Sleep, Relax, by Calm.com, Inc. Before you can start using this app, you need to enter your top goals which you would like to achieve. You also need to create an account with the mobile app, using your email-address of Facebook login details. According to the app, the purpose of creating an account is to store your progress.

You can continue to look only at the image while removing all the other icons by tapping on the screen. You also have the option of changing the background image and picking an animated picture which meets your preferences.
The app has a lot of content, designed to help you relax, sleep, meditate. In the free version, you get to use all the premium features. We believe this is good, as it allows the users to get immersed in what the app has to offer, increasing the likelihood of them to pay for the premium version. There are various subscription models, depending on your usage and preferences. After using the app for a long time, it is understandable why it won awards. The user interface is quick and responsive, and there were no bugs.
From the paid section of Google Play Store, taking the number one spot is The Wonder Weeks, an application by Domus Technica. For the uninitiated, The Wonder Weeks is a mobile app which helps parents understand the various stages of mental development of their babies.
The app is the result of 35 years of research, condensed into bite-sized information, which allows the parents to understand the behavior of their children. For example, there will be some days when the baby is fussy, happy, and demanding. By understanding the various mental developmental stages, it becomes easier for parents to understand their babies.
As the user interface of the app is simple, the time taken to learn how to use all its features is quite short. In the main screen, all the options are available, which is a great feature. When you are handling a baby, you want to have quick access to information (least number of taps). There are videos and audiobooks available, to ensure that you get to learn about your baby properly.
The app has won awards in various countries, a testament of its usefulness and practicality. In short, it is the best baby calendar app money can buy at the moment. It also gives you tips on how to help your little one, during various mental developmental stages. If you are planning on getting the book, it would be much better to invest in this app.
