Report: Health apps among fastest growing

According to the latest Citrix Mobile Analytics Report, the top 10 most popular mobile health apps by subscriber usage are related to fitness and running, weight loss and nutrition and women's health, the report revealed. A little more than half are using their mobile health apps more now, as compared to when it was first downloaded. 

In addition, the report found the fitness category of mobile health apps tends to generate a higher network load than other mobile health apps, due to the periodic updating of the user's status, such as a runner's progress along a route. 

"We expect that activity trackers and other wearables such as the FitBit, Nike+, Pebble and Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch will generate ever greater network impact as they integrate more fitness and mobile health apps into their functionality," the report predicts. Announcement
