12 Apps That'll Make You Skinny
We turn to our smart phones for everything from news updates to boredom-busting games. But can they help us lose weight? See the best fitness apps that just might get you to shed those pounds fast
Zombies, Run!, $7.99When you're trying to shed some pounds, cardio is a must -- yet most of us come up with a million excuses to avoid it. We're too tired, it's too boring, the treadmill line at the gym is too long, etc., etc. When you're running, and you find your motivation waning, there's only one thing to keep you going: zombies. There's nothing like a half-dead, flesh-eating corpse chasing you to get you to run faster.
This brilliant app submerges you in a highly interactive audio adventure. Co-created by award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman, the guttural breaths and rattling groans of the walking dead get closer, surrounding you on every side -- all you can do is run! With each advancing level, you'll be narrated into more missions to keep the survivors alive with ammo and medicine you've collected on your trail. With 17 missions, this game-trainer hybrid will get you to run and lose weight -- the fun way.
