I have My Fitness Pal, iLose and WW apps on my phone. I need to downsize and free up some space on my phone. Who uses what apps, and which do you think is the best?

I use the Myfitnesspal app to track my food. I havent used the others you listed, so I don't know how they compare but I do like MFP. The only real frustration I have with it is that sometimes it's hard to find exactly what food you are looking for with accurate stats unless you input things yourself and I just dont have time for that usually.

I use some other apps for weigh ins and fitness and stuff.

I can't really compare either, I'm not tracking calories right now, but I've used MFP in the past and loved it!

Runkeeper for my walking/running, Just 6 weeks for working on my push ups and situps (and eventually squats and dips). I have a Couch to 5k app but I'm not quite to the level to do even the first week of that yet lol. Monitor Your Weight as a weight tracker (though I mostly just use weightgrapher.com for that)
I like apps if you couldn't tell hah.

I like it. It has GPS tracking and it tracks your pace and stuff. It also does all sorts of activities like running, biking, hiking, even stuff like elliptical and swimming.

I wonder if they have any apps for lifting. I don't really use any apps. Most of my friends use MyFitnessPal but I don't know a lot about it.

^This! I haven't logged in for awhile. I just started maintenance a few months ago and I really want/need to do this on my own. I don't want to rely on counting calories for the rest of my life.
