Keeping tabs on your health with WebMD app (unofficial) for Windows Phone

21

One aspect of staying fit is tending to health issues that may crop up. WebMD is a popular website that provides you with a wide range of medical and health information ranging from diet to medication to home remedies. While WebMD should never replace a trip to the doctor's office, the website can improve your knowledge of health conditions and offer suggestions on how to live a healthier lifestyle.

The Windows Phone WebMD app isn't an official offering but does try to deliver WebMD's information to your phone. The app provides WebMD's health tools, information on health conditions and tips on living healthy. Absent an official WebMD app, this unofficial version does a decent job of things by giving you easy access to the mobile WebMD website. However, there are a few quirks about it.

28

Today is National Running Day, which means it’s the perfect day to put some miles under you since we’re getting serious with #MobileFit month. One of my goals this month is to get more into running. Tonight I’ll hit the pavement with my new GT-1000 2 running shoes from Asics (Amazon.com). They’re the storm/lightning/limeade color in case you were curious. It won’t be a super long-distance run; instead I want to focus on some quality interval training. Track Runner for Windows Phone just picked up a handful of features in their recent 3.0 update, one of which was support for interval training. Full changelog after the break.
