My Frequently Used Apps

Health and Fitness

Feelfit. Bluetooth link to Yolanda brand scales.  It is no longer available on Amazon but there are others that use the same methods. The fitbit scale died after 2 years.  I have been using this one for about 2 years.  Renpho is another model that does the same thing. 

What I like: Measures 13 body compostion things: % body fat, body water, skeletal muscle, BMR, Fat-free body weight, subcutaneous fat, viceral fat, muscle mass, bone mass, protein, metablolic age.  Integrates with other apps e.g Fitbit. App free with scale.
What I don’t like: You have to open the app to you weigh yourself.  Not sure how accurate it is or how things are measured.

Sleep Cycle
What I like- Easy to use, free, lots of metrics
What I don’t like- can’t change location

What I don’t like:  ads unless you pay, not as good as old scrabble app.
