Let’s face it, computers are here to stay and will keep advancing quicker then we know it. There are many of us that pretty much refuse to use computers in our everyday life.

These days even babies are starting to use computers even before they are off diapers. This kids will grow up as experts in computers and the way we use computers will change drastically.

One of these sports with plenty of apps is golf. What’s the reason for this you may wonder? It is probably because golf is one of those sports which requires a lot of training and has a lot of variables in it. For example, different distances you need to use different clubs, but if there are up hills or down you may need to use a different club. You also may need to use a different club if there are moderate to strong winds. So there are apps to help with everything golf.

There are many things in the supermarket that we believe are healthy and think that we are doing good things for our body when we are not. Lots of packaging these days make products look really healthy and have pictures of nice and fresh vegetables on the front, but are actually really bad for us and have vegetable flavoring not actual vegetables. Another example is store bought protein bars, they are not as healthy as people think. What to do? Well try out Fooducate, you can simply scan the barcode of a product and Fooducate will tell you how healthy it is by giving you a health score.
These days there seems to be an app for everything! Anything from counting how many steps you did in one day, to a woman’s period tracking app (yes as crazy as it sounds), and then to weight loss apps.
Even with thousands of useless apps flooding the app market each week, there are actually a few good weight loss apps available. Here are our favorites:
This awesome little app is free! It lets you look up the food you are about to eat and track your calories. This way you may have second thoughts before you eat that ice cream.
