There's a wonderful Swedish article that's come out about different workout apps and their respective benefits, and I was interviewed in the process.
I think it can be very helpful to use a workout app if you are self competitive or work best with a goal in mind (I think most of us fit in at least one of those categories). Having a specific number of steps to walk each day or a number of calories to burn can help you achieve your goals and stay on track.
