Apps for making tea, keeping healthy and creating your own ringtones make up today’s Fresh Apps list, and each is filled with information about its respective subject. Tea teaches you how to make various kinds of teas and gives you all the tools to do so, and Healthycloud lets you track your health information no matter where you are when you receive it. Finally, you can whip-up your own ringtones with Ringtone Remix Pro, using your iPod music and a Dropbox account.

Tea (iPhone) $2.99

All the information you could ever want about tea while you’re on-the-go can be found in Tea for the iPhone. The app is packed full of “brew suggestions” for more than 200 teas, teaching you how to make your tea in various ways regardless of what kind it is, with all the info about methodology and brew times you might need.

You can save notes and rate teas so you can remember what you liked and how you liked it for later, and Tea includes unit conversions so you can always make a perfect cup. You can even share what you’re learning and what you like about your tea with friends using the app’s Facebook and Twitter integration.

Healthycloud (iPhone, iPad) $3.99

Log and keep all your health information using Healthycloud, an app that lets you save all your health data to the cloud so you can access it anywhere and always keep up on various stats to keep yourself fit and strong. The idea is that if you can track information like food intake, cholesterol and other metrics no matter where you are, as soon as you eat or discover numbers, you’ll be able to better track all your information and use it to keep yourself healthier.

Healthycloud includes a database with more than 100,000 foods and more than 200 exercises, helping to keep track of everything you do. The app has lots of exercise instructions to help you in your workouts, and also lets you track things like weight and blood pressure for maximum health awareness.

Ringtone Remix Pro (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

With Ringtone Remix Pro, you can create ringtones for your phone, using the app’s waveform music visualizer, or with its automatic “magic button” track clip picker. Once you’ve got your clip, you can preview it to see how it sounds as your ringtone and how it will loop if it plays over and over again for multiple rings.

Probably the best part of Ringtone Remix, apart from making free ringtones whenever you feel like straight out of your iPod, is the ability to integrate the app with a Dropbox account and save ringtones to the cloud over the Internet. You can also pull songs from your Dropbox account to turn into tracks, using your iPhone’s 3G connection. It’s a handy bit of functionality that will allow you to have greater control over your ringtones and what songs you can use to make them.
