Smartphones continue to grow in popularity and wearable technology is sported by people few would have ever expected to flaunt high-tech gear just a couple of years ago. Grandmas and great uncles who once had difficulty operating a computer now check their heartrate and step count with the casual flip of the wrist.

With more startups getting in on the action each year and new ideas launched seemingly every week, sifting through which ones are worth downloading can feel like a tall order. A recent article in the USA Today highlighted 14 of the best available apps, including some that require purchase or subscription. Story author Dalvin Brown listed the top apps, beginning with those that are available for free, writing:
