    Full disclosure, I work at MGH but wanted to pass along our free EMNet findER app designed to get users to the closest ER in the shortest ammount of time. The best part is it's free! http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/emnet-finder/id376928203?mt=8

    just started using RunKeeper. I have liked it so far. I am just starting to get running a bit and it's handy for tracking time and distance. The app even is paired with the RunKeeper site and you can share out your activity to help keep yourself motivated.

    1. MyFitnessPal <-- Great Calorie Counter, Food & Exercise Diary. Database is loaded with everyday food items from top name grocery stores, restaurants etc. You can even log your workouts. If there is something you can't find, you can enter it for everyone to use.

    2. Whole Foods Recipes App - Great app that give great recipe ideas using items from Whole Foods. Grocery list is automatically generated for ingredients that are needed to make your favorite dish!

    I love the Couch25k app.  I used to run years ago but stopped because I got bored and my knees were in terrible condition.  Since I started using this app 8 weeks ago I have grown a new appreciation for running.

    I use Calorie Counter.  It's easy to monitor your daily diet and exercise.  Simple to use and a great tool (and that's the free version (!), the full version is likely superior in some features - if anyone can comment, please do).

    As a Registered Dietitian, mynetdairy is pretty good for basic dietary intake tracking and exercise expenditure. ... Given I work at Children's - I rely on STAT GrowthCarts, which could be stellar.

    How about an app that lets you know whether you even need to go to the ER. That would be both a life and a money saver.

    medscape, webMD, Epocrates, and KidsDoc - all great.  I'm a nurse -pediatrics, and a mom - these come in very handy.

    I've been using caloriecount.about.com to track food and exercize for the last month or so, and I think it's really thorough.  It has most foods already in its database, and you can add your own recipes if you're so inclined.  It has an android and iphone app associated with it

    I love the suite of free iPhone apps from MeYou Health - especially Munch 5-a-day for tracking fruits and vegetables I eat, and Monumental where I can climb virtual monuments as I climb real stairs then check out the view from the top. 
    You can see all of the apps here: www.products.meyouhealth.com

    My favorite health/fitness app? It's called Itunes. It lets me listen to mp3's while I run, play sports, and workout. No "app" is going to make me get fit. Action is what makes me get/stay fit.

    Lose It - EXCELLENT - and free! - app for tracking calories in (from food) and out (exercise). Amazing database of foods, and I love the ability to calculate calories in our family dinners by entering the recipe ingredients! I showed it to my Mom (age 65) - she says it's now the app she uses most - several times a day - on her ipod touch. We have both lost weight using Lose It's calorie-counting features. :-)

    Also FMC Menstrual Calendar - Not perfect, but it fits my needs best out of about 10 apps in this category that I tried.

    That's what iTriage does which is in this list (2nd app, page 3). For example, if you tweak your ankle at a softball game and think you may have fractured it, you can look up ankle fracture and the app gives you a list of the medical facility types you can go to. In this example, the app let's you know you can either go to an ER to treat that or you can go to an Urgent Care, which is way faster and cheaper.

    Tonic (http://bit.ly/TonicSC) is the best app for people with complex daily health regimens — people who have multiple chronic (and temporary) conditions, as well as those who just have a lot of medications, therapies, symptoms, metrics, etc. to keep track of everyday.  It is used by a wide range of people, some with complex issues (cancer, parkinson's disease, cystic fibrosis, etc.) and others with difficult-to-remember "wellness" regimens.

    I like EndoMondo ... it measures distance, calories etc for anything you are doing. Running, walking, kayaking, etc... It is helpful to me and simple to use!

    I have been using LoseIt app (free) for several years.  A great app that tracks calories, exercise all within a daily & weekly calorie budget.  The first time I used it, it helped me lose 25 lbs.  I continue to use it to maintain my desired weight.

    Livestrong Claorie Tracker.  Its amazing.  Changed my life -- really.  Lost 40 pounds since last Xmas, and have a whole new way of looking at food and exercise.  Now, my motivation to exercise is to be able to eat more!  Genius.  And it works.

    I use the same app I used in the 50's, my brain!  Some of you may want to try using yours, the rest of you stay with your apps, you would never make it through the day without them
