Thanks for the suggestions! If anyone has more droid suggestions, I am all ears!!
@JENNY32WI- the SP does allow you to scan nutritional information. It is still in beta so there are a lot of foods missing. But on the food tab, on the top left there is an icon for scanning a barcode.
Fitness app? I haven't tried them but it seems interesting.

I just found Pedometer PRO GPS. Since I don't run, it's great for walking and even if I'm not walking far, if I'm going any distance I find it very helpful. Tracks the distance, steps, calories, average speed and time, I can map my route, and I can listen to my music at the same time.
My Fitness Pal is good, too. I just jumped back on the wagon so I have to get familiarized with my apps again but I think MFP allows you to scan labels to input nutritional information. If SP allowed that, it would be great!

I only use two. SparkPeople for tracking food throughout the day, and iMapMyRun for tracking walks and hikes.
Another health-related one that I rely on very heavily is iPeriod, which is a lifesaver for someone as disorganized as me. I haven't had a surprise period since I got iPhone!

My iphone 4s arrives tomorrow (making the switch from android); looking forward to downloading some of the suggested apps!
I know this sounds crazy, but my favorite app that I use for fitness purposes is the Netflix App. I absolutely hate walking/jogging on the treadmill because it is so boring! I have found that when I watch a quick episode of Family Guy(which is 30-min), the time passes by quickly and I am not bored.
to everyone for all the great suggestions. I've downloaded a few and will give them a try this week.

I used RunKeeper for the first time yesterday, and I love it! It played my music for me, but then every five minutes told me how I was doing. I found it really motivational - as my split times would get lower, it made me want to pick up the pace. Plus I also like how it told me how far I'd gone, too, as I'm wanting to increase my distance.
I highly recommend RunKeeper, now, too - especially as its free!
Can't get my iPhone to work in my current location, so I am glad I did not rely on any of their apps heavily.

I started out using Loseit before I found spark people. Now, I mostly use spark people, but I prefer LoseIt's recipe feature... sometimes when i'm playing with a recipe and I'm not sure how its going to turn out, but I want to know the calories and nutrients, etc, so I put it into Lose It instead of uploading it onto the sparkrecipes site. (I guess that's not really for fitness, though!)
i want to check out Nike + iPod, which came with my phone... and I've just downloaded Runkeeper.
Thanks for all the great suggestions!

I have a droid. I use some of the apps listed below (edmondo, sparkpeople, etc); but I also use four other apps not listed. These are pullups, squats, situps, and pushups all by Rittr Labs. They don't require any exceptions such as internet access or account access. They are used for wanting to increase the amount of each of these things to a goal over time. Even if it is only the ability to try and do 1 (pull ups are hard!!!).

Since I don't like to run (I'm more of a zumba girl) I don't use a gps so I pretty much use the sparkpeople app
My favorite is Endomondo... it's FREE (a biggy for me lol) but it's also just very user friendly. It can track just about any type of exercise, not just running, and has several different modes too. You can also set goals. If you sync it to facebook it will post when you start and finish an activity, which is kind of fun, and it also automatically uploads your workout to the website (which is also free), where you can do even more stuff including joining challenges!
To me this is a lot of fun features in one app... all for free! They also have a pro version if you want to add even more, but to me the free version is more than enough.

I have a Droid, but most of the apps are still the same. The main ones I love are:
iMapMyRun SparkPeople app C25K lite
The iMapMyRun is a great app. It does gps tracking of your run and you can record it to your MapMyRun profile or to Facebook/Twitter/etc. Plus it runs in the background so I can run my music and C25K, too!
I use 100 Pushups and Lose it! And have lost a total of 15 lbs in 11 weeks :) I've also downloaded the Nike Training Club app but only used it once. It was a pretty tough workout even at the beginner level, but I hope to give it another try in a few weeks. I know it will yield some great results if I can dig my heels in.

I also use the iMapMyRide and love it. It has great reports and I love being able to look back at my routes. It backs up online too. I would highly recommend it! Try it!

I've had a smartphone for a while but for some reason I was using a really crappy pedometer app, and only discovered RunKeeper two weeks ago - I LOVE it!! It tracks my route and pace and speed and appears to be fairly accurate. It also documents your runs well - there's an option to take pics and save them to 'that run', and as soon as you finish your workout it asks how it went so you can write a few words about how you feel 'live'. Of course, you also have the breakdown of pace (each minute as well as interval) and elevation which you can track on the website in co-ordinance to the map of you route. you can build your own workouts and get audio cues and info. And it doesn't stop working if you leave the app, which is a huge plus. This is all in the free version - I don't even know what the added features of the 'elite' version are.
I just got an iPhone so for the last week, I've been using RunKeeper. I love how it tells me what time I'm at and what my rate is. You can set up all kinds of things it tells you and how often. It's very motivating for me and makes me want to run more.
Just got my first smart phone. What is your favorite fitness app? Also, I'm specifically looking for something to use while running...maybe map it or tell me splits. Anyone have a suggestion for a running app?
