Lose It!: Built in barcode scanner makes counting packaged foods a snap, although if you are serious about weight loss it does make sense to avoid these types of foods. Of course you can also track your exercise in addition to your meals and share this information with your friends. Free
MyFitnessPal Calorie Counter: We covered this app when we did our get in shape for spring roundup, and we would be remiss to leave it out. With a large community to draw from, the emphasis with this app is on connecting with friends in order to stay motivated, which is so helpful when trying to keep those calories down. Free
Noom Weight Loss Coach: By far our clear favourite when it comes to this category of apps for Android — we wish this app was available for iOS! Going beyond simply listing what you've eaten or what exercises you've done, this smart looking app has a nice well-rounded approach that is more akin to a coach, hence its name. With this app there is still the food awareness, fitness, and motivation pieces, but there is also an overall weight loss plan that is customized for you that all of these pieces tie into. Although the app is free, for the full coach experience one must pay $10 a month. Free
