great list, I'd also like to suggest two of our highly rated health and wellness apps:

Live Happy - a positive psychology happiness-boosting app based on the research of Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky ("The How of Happiness"); Includes numerous research proven activities to increase mood and happiness

Stress Free with Deepak Chopra - a stress reducing program from Dr. Chopra including interactive exercises, guided meditations, music therapy, yoga, nutrition advice, etc.

Both can be found at
