9 iPhone apps that will suit your hobbies

Apps that improve what you do in your free time

Grilling. Bird watching. Shopping. Whatever you do in your free time, there's an app for that. Here's a look at nine intriguing options to help you recharge.

Healthy body, healthy mind

Nothing tackles work stress better than a workout, which releases endorphins while making you healthier. The hardest part, though, is getting started and doing it right.

That's where £1.19 iFitness comes in - the most popular healthcare and fitness app on the App Store.

iFitness offers workout routines for weight loss, muscle building and strength building. There's even a business travel workout routine. You can log your workouts, as well as learn how to do exercises properly. Now hit the gym.

Photographers at play

Work often taxes the left brain while leaving the right brain to wallow. Many people use their downtime to flex the right brain with artistic endeavors such as photography.

The iPhone is great for helping amateur photographers improve their art form, which has led to a photography-specific category in the App Store.

One of the most fun apps, the £1.19 ColorSplash, lets you turn an existing photograph into a black-and-white one, and then splash color back into parts of the picture.
