Which startup is going to be the next big thing? Investors, bloggers, job seekers, and inspiring entrepreneurs everywhere are dying to know.

Each week, I share some of the hottest new startups in this column, Best In Beta. Let’s discover the next big thing together!
I’m so angry about healthcare in the States right now. It’s an expensive joke that should throw into question the country’s status as a developed country. That said, I’m going to spare readers a diatribe and proceed by saying that the best, most practical, most affordable healthcare around is to take care of yourself and not get sick in the first place.
Much much easier said than done, right?
Well, you don’t have to try to go it alone. No matter what healthcare plan you do or do not have, FeelKit can help you maintain optimal health and happiness. This iOS app is your personal well-being assistant.
FeelKit collects data from your mobile device related to your schedule and eating habits and activities, and pairs it with the best public health data around to make recommendations that both fit with your lifestyle and keep you healthy.
Smart! FeelKit lets you have a running conversation – with the nutritionist and other specialists you most likely can’t afford – in order to improve everything from your diet to sleep schedule, your workout program to your daily water intake. FeelKit tracks what you do, listens to you, and comes up with wellness recipes just right for you.
Eating right, and staying active – this is a good base recipe, but life never makes things so simple. Without someone watching our back, we all stray from our intentions pretty easily. FeelKit offers a quick and useful tool to help us stick with a program – the digital buddy that can ride shotgun with us on the roller coaster each of us boards daily.
I haven’t been to a doctor in a long time, mostly because of the expense. I’d love to know if I’m actually healthy or secretly doing everything wrong and on course to fall apart in a year. No one should have to pay a zillion dollars to find out how they’re doing. It makes sense, and saves money to keep people healthy… Whoops, about to go off the rails.
Let me just say, that until we have true healthcare and not some kind of overpriced triage system, FeelKit is the assistant we could all use. It’s the program that works for you. Request early access at feelkit.com.
