Managing a chronic condition is difficult, but this application can ease your burden. Loaded with helpful information on many conditions — from cancer and pain to ADHD autism — SymTrend acts like a virtual diary for your symptoms. Use your phone to keep track of your or your child's condition by recording, say, mid-morning anxiety or post-dinner pain levels. Knowing how you react to certain times of day or daily events can help you learn about triggers, food allergies, drug side effects and more.
O.K., granted, your smartphone’s signal might be increasing your risk of cancer, but if you download the right apps, your digital device can also be a health advantage. Healthland picked the 10 best wellness-inspiring apps for the iPhone — but keep in mind that many of these are also available for Android, Blackberry and other platforms.
