Women’s health is an area of interest that has sparked a great deal of attention in the last decade or so, as the medical field began to better understand the differences between male and female bodies.  For everything from muscle targeting to gynecology, women have very specific health needs. 

The iPhone can become a great tool for women to maintain their health, as they can have mobile resources and trackers at an arm’s length.  Here are some apps for your iPhone that can help you manage your overall wellness.
