Let’s face it. We are addicted to technology. We use it to chat with our friends and family, post ridiculous pictures with digital puppy ears plastered over our kids, and probably waste a few too many hours streaming our shows, movies, and funny videos.
If we’re already going to be on our devices all day, we might as well use them to help us get in shape. Luckily, there are hundreds of apps dedicated to doing just that.
