Free phone apps can help you lose weight, achieve your goals

Here are three free smartphone apps that can guide you in your quest for self improvement:
Mynd: Consider this calendar app your very own personal assistant.
Mynd helps start each day on the right foot by showing the current weather forecast, your number of commitments and locations for each meeting.
It syncs with your GPS, gives you step-by-step directions, tells when you need to leave for each meeting and if you are likely to encounter traffic. For iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Yummly: Losing weight is about more than just exercising. Yummly lets dieters scroll through photos of delectable-looking dishes and cocktails and collect healthful recipes based on their tastes, allergies and other preferences.
For instance, you can set filters that will only display vegetarian or gluten-free recipes or dishes that require no more than 20 minutes to prepare. More than 1 million recipes are available. For iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Lift: This daily motivation app will give you just the nudge you need to succeed. Create your own resolution or search through ones created by others, such as “Six weeks to a half marathon” or “Stop being a workaholic.”
Long-term goals offer daily instructional tips to help you achieve a little at a time.
The app lets you schedule periodic reminders, check off a task once completed and see how many people have joined each plan.
Lift tracks your progress and lets you connect with friends to track theirs too. For iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android.
