Health apps?

Hi all,

I know this isn't strictly a "game" question, but we have such a good/knowledgdable community here I thought I'd ask.

Does anyone have any good behavioral health (i.e. mental health) or health (e.g. diabetes, weight management, etc.) that they use, would recommend, or would recommend avoiding?

There are several through the National Center for Telehealth and Technology, but looking for others. I am a psychologist and am creating a group for my facility that will provide general education for an older adult audience who may not know how to use smartphones optimally. The two target areas are general education (ios vs. android, using tools like app shopper app to get deals on an app, what is a QR code, etc.) and then some specific info on health/behavioral health apps (specific apps, games related to health- thinking run zombie run, etc.)

Any thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
