Snappy titles make it pure and simple to work it out

Men's Health Workouts Lite Free Rating 10/10

Men's Health magazine is a riveting read, even for a woman. The titles alone - 'Get in shape and lose that belly' and 'Are you tough enough for this workout?' - are fascinating. The tone of the app is equally sensational, with a choice of five workouts, such as 'Build New Muscle, Fast', or the 'Spartacus Workout'.

Jeff Galloway's Ultimate 10k US$2.99 Rating 10/10

Entering the 10-kilometre Unicef Charity Run 2011 seemed a fine thing to do after a glass or two of wine with friends. After all, thanks to the C25k and Runmeter apps, I am now capable of running a reasonable five kilometres when the wind is in the right direction.

Medical record-keeping for you and family couldn't be much easier than this

My Medical US$1.99 Rating 10/10
