Do Health Apps Inspire You to Keep Fit?

One of the greater things our mobile devices do is help us keep fit, or at least help us stay honest about keeping fit. They can track information as well as keep a log of it for us. But do they help? Sure, they help track and log info, but do your mobile apps inspire you to keep fit?

Perhaps leading to even more inspiration, Google, Apple, and Samsung are all working on apps with health-data platforms. Instead of having a bunch of apps doing different things, these apps will collect all that data and present it to you in one place. They’re also marketing this for wearables. These would, of course, would make it easier than ever to keep fit. Sure, you still have to do the hard work, but all the information to help you make decisions will be kept in one place from what you ate to how you moved to what your body is currently doing. It sounds like it will do everything other than tell you to put down that pint of ice cream. And this process will be available to everyone with Google, Apple, and Samsung devices.

But will this just help the people who are currently into keeping fit or will it help inspire those who aren’t fit to get fit now that it’s so easy? Do apps inspire you to keep fit?
