Are you looking to lose weight? A smartphone can help.

Researchers at Northwestern University suggest a smartphone is a good tool to help you diet. They say people who use phone apps to track what they eat, exercise habits, and calorie-counting lost more weight than those who did not.

The study showed, on average, adults using smartphone apps lost about 8 lbs. more than people who did not use the technology.
