    "This is a neat little app that puts you right in the Q&A with actual doctors. There seem to be different levels of service, but there's a free version that they seem to actually tend to on a somewhat timely manner. I also like how the doctors even give checklists of stuff to do to tend to minor ailments. It's definitely worth a look and a little more personal than reference material like WebMD."

    "This might be an overwhelming app if you're not serious about changing your health, because you get a lot of alerts. I mean a lot. But if you are serious, this thing is really good. It recommends a lot of things that seem too complicated to me (recipes with weird ingredients, exercises like rock climbing), but your mileage may vary. I enjoyed this app."

    "Since I sleep alone most of the time, I really like having an app that can help me monitor my sleep habits. I am having a hard time with sleeping through the night and I'm hoping that all the data this collects will help me figure out my problems. It seems to be great at getting me up, too. No more sleeping through my alarms."

    "This is a calorie counter and then some! Literally everything you could need with a health and fitness app. So much better than the one that comes pre installed on the phone. There's literally no reason to use another app besides this one. So great! And integrates well with my fitness band too!"
