This app is essentially the free (and a little bit more manual) version of Weight Watchers. The concept is simple: put in your height, weight, daily activity level, your goal weight, and it'll help you keep track of the food you eat and the exercise you get! It can even connect with the step monitor on your iPhone.

This app, while a little tedious, gets easier as you use it. You can add friends, create recipes, and even monitor your progress all in one app! Get it for free in the App Store. 




If your New Year's resolution is to simply drink less, then you'll definitely need to get the AlcoDroid for Android (or Drink Control for iPhone). 

With this app, you'll be able to track how much you're drinking and what your estimated blood alcohol level will be — a perfect way to make sure you get home safe every night. It can also help you with your spending!

If you want to quit smoking for your New Year's resolution, this is the perfect app for you. Considering that tobacco use is the most preventable cause of death in the United States, this really is a resolution you should pull out all the big guns for!

It's simple: set a quit date and log all your progress. Need some motivation? The free app will calculate just how much money you're saving by quitting!




If you're looking to save some money or get a budget going for 2016, look no further than Mint!

With this app, you'll be able to track your spending, make sure you pay your bills on time, and even get a better idea of where all your money is going (do you really know how much money you spent in Starbucks last month?). Try it out for free!
