5 Apps for Women – what are your favorite Android apps?

We all have smartphones that we cherish in this day and age and we keep trying to keep ourselves entertained, be it via social media or through apps and games. We try them all, we keep what we like and toss away those pesky in-app purchase apps when they start to bug us too much. But being women, we can find some interesting choices in great apps for women that actually make our lives easier. In the following article I will provide you with five of the most popular and useful apps you can at least try to see if they help you in your womanly day to day routine. Here we go!

 

 

Android apps for women

 

 

My Fitness Pal

 

We are always preoccupied with our health or our appearance and, especially since we lead busier and busier lives, we can fall into bad habits that will not help us in any way. This is where My Fitness Pal comes to the rescue as this little free app will help us keep a record of what we eat and how we exercise. It is one of the most popular health and fitness app for women because what it primarily does is count calories and keep track of your daily sports routine.

You can also access blogs, recipes and tips on how to improve your diet and workout routine for better results. You get daily and weekly nutrition goals you can thoroughly investigate, as well as progress charts, daily reminders and you can even sync this app to other fitness and sports apps and even wearables!

 

 

Sworkit Pro

 

Let’s face it1! Our hectic lives leave less and less room for workouts, but we need sports and exercise to stay healthy. A great solution that could help you keep track of your workouts – be they yoga, Pilates, cardio or strength training – is Sworkit Pro. You can also try the Lite version, which is free, or the Pro version that costs $4.99.

The app reminds you to exercise for 15 minutes daily (or more if you want it to) and presents different workout types to choose from, according to what you like to do to keep yourself fit. This way, you get a personal trainer in your smartphone! Simply Work it at home, watch your targeted progress, statistics about your preferred types of workout and set your own exercise intervals.

 

 

YouCam Makeup – Makeover Studio

 

It is one of those beauty enhancer apps for women that will completely change you for the perfect selfie! You can erase imperfections, improve your features, add make up and simply make yourself fabulous without having to use a ton of Photoshop or make up remover or remover wipes afterwards!

This app is also useful when you are willing to try new make up styles on yourself without blindly committing: you just snap a regular selfie photo and then you can add foundation, different eye shades and lashes, you can change the shape and color of your brows and make your eyes pop out… literally! It has some drawbacks of course, but for a free app, this does a pretty good job on Android phones!

 

 

Bonus: Facetune

The king of all touch up apps, Facetune is the paid application you can use on your day to day selfie adventures. It is paid and does exactly everything that the YouCam Makeup app does, only maybe a bit better. You can basically retouch every photo or selfie you take with the same degree of difficulty as the previous app, only it gives you a more granular control over what you can change. The app costs $3.99 and it is the Android version of the praised iOS Facetune celebs are always talking about.

My Calendar

 

One, if not THE most popular period trackers in the Google Play store is My Period Calendar. One of the best apps for women, My Calendar has a sweet interface that keeps you up to date with all that important personal stuff: periods, ovulation, chances of pregnancy, weight, birth control, intimate actions and moods! You can program a personal and discreet notification to let you know when Aunt Flo is coming to visit and you get a period and fertility calculator that you can check any time to keep surprises at bay, among other things.

 

 

Bonus: Pink Pad Pro

If you don’t like the lively look of this one, you have an alternative in Pink Pad Pro, for example. Another one of the free apps for women, Pink Pad Pro offers in-app purchases but this will not ruin your overall experience. It is easy to use, predicts periods and ovulation according to your cycle, lets you set up your mood of the day, symptoms and make notes and even register your weight and temperature.

 

 

These are a few of the most popular and useful apps for women that I can say that I use on a regular basis. What are your favorite apps that you couldn’t live without? Let us know in the comments below!

Misfit Speedo Shine – a fitness band for swimmers

Misfit Speedo Shine is a new wearable that could change your life, especially if you’re an avid swimmer. This swim tracker is aimed at this niche market that has been suffering in the midst of a sea of smartwatches and “waterproof” wearables that you should not wear in the pool.

 

Misfit Speedo Shine

 

 

If you have been looking for a cheap AND waterproof tracker that works well and is compatible with Apple, Android and Windows Phone devices, Misfit Speedo Shine could be the best option for you. It costs $80 and it is branded as a wearable for swimmers.

 

The fitness bracelet uses an accelerometer and some particular algorithms to count different things such as calories, laps, distance, and exercise time when you are in the pool. Although it lacks some smart home controls that other Misbit devices have, it’s worth the price, at least for some people. After you finish a workout, you can sync your data via Bluetooth to an Android, Windows Phone or iPhone device, and you will then get an increase in your total activity score. The data syncs with Speedo’s private swim tracking app if you want it to.

 

Apart from the swimming features, the Misfit Speedo Shine band can track sleep, running, cycling and walking. The silver color scheme has 12 LED lights that show users how close they are to their daily goals. The device resists to water submerges down to 50 meters. The device runs on a CR2032 coin cell battery that you will not have to recharge as apparently you can replace it every 6 months.

 

Other Misfit devices have additional features that the Speedo Shine does not have. This includes a lack of controlling music playback, snapping selfies, toggling between connected home products and scrolling through different presentations.

 

The new Misfit swimmer band will launch on September 1st in Apple retail stores, but you will also be able to find it online through Speedo and Misfit.

 

Even if this device is not the best out there, it is one of the few bands to actually count laps in a pool, and it costs $80, unlike the next best thing, the $100 Moov Now (which also offers coaching for various types of workouts). The choice is yours, pool lover!

AT&T teases Samsung Galaxy S6 Active – workout-oriented device to launch soon

AT&T recently teased the Galaxy S6 Active on Twitter, which can only mean that we are bound to see it in stores sooner rather than later. The US carrier has been hinting at launching a workout-friendly handset soon, and that can be the S6 Active, if we are to believe rumors and leaks.

 

S6 tease

 

“Only one thing is missing from your workout. It’s almost time to activate your full power.” Nice word-play AT&T! There’s a cropped picture showing you what the device looks like if it was an orange block, but recent leaks show its real flavor too.

 

S6 Active

 

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active should relate to the S6 line in terms of specs, with an Exynos 7420 processor, 3 GB or RAM and at least 32GB of storage encouraged by a 16MP camera. On top of all of that you also get the much desired water and dust resistant design plus physical nav buttons.
