    In recent years, there has been a continuous expansion of mobile health, in which users can track their health and fitness via mobile apps. Health and fitness apps have great potential to improve health outcomes for populations with limited access to healthcare. Such apps help the user set health and fitness goals and self-monitor their daily behavior whilst providing evidence-based behavior change techniques, individually tailored feedback, and periodic summaries. While there are currently more than 100,000 health and fitness apps, there is a dearth of research evidence regarding their effectiveness. Please read my recently published paper and share your feedback https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29503751
