One of the wonderful things about being able to possess all the world's knowledge in your pocket is the incredible access to healthcare you can receive through health apps. Whether you are trying to manage a condition or your fitness levels, these helpful smartphone applications keep you and your health on track.

From heart-monitoring to weight loss-aiding, fitness apps are becoming increasingly popular. Particular health concerns such as trying to quit smoking, oral care and vision loss are also controllable through a mobile device application. If you want to sleep better or practice mindfulness, there are also apps for that.

On the other hand, there are communication building health apps that make caregivers and patients more connected, as well as app-accompanying teddy bears that let sick kids interact with their parents when visiting hours have ended.
