Best apps for better health

iTriage, BreathPacer, and more

iTriage can’t write scrips, but it “does just about everything else” you’d want a health app to do. Enter your symptoms and it’ll list common causes and suggest the best course of action. It even provides directions to the nearest clinics, pharmacies, and hospitals. (Free, iOS or Android)

BreathPacer supports the type of therapeutic breathing used in yoga and meditation. It calculates an optimal breathing rate according to your height, then provides audio and video cues to direct you when to inhale and exhale. ($3, iOS only)

Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock offers “a gentler approach” to waking up. When you place your iPad or iPhone on your mattress, this app uses the device’s accelerometer to monitor your sleep pattern, and it will wake you only at times when you’re in your lightest phase of sleep. ($1, iOS only)
