For those who love their cellphones, today is an exciting day. The opening of the Amazon Appstore for Android! Not only is the new store giving away a free paid app every day, but it's also giving you the chance to return any app in the store within 15 minutes — so if you download a calorie counter that doesn't perform as well as you thought it would, poof! Money back. We recently scoured the new app store's health and fitness section to find three apps worth trying. Here are our top picks.
