What's New in Version 1.1.2
Weight Watchers points.
It's difficult for me to understand how people could rate this application low because of what it doesn't provide instead of what it delivers. It delivers a quick, easy reference to many, many foods and is a fantastic addition to anyone's set of tools for nutritional information. I have an 8 year old diabetic son and this application has helped us tremendously on the road and at home. Sure, it would be more helpful if there were more portion sizes to choose from but if anyone has actually purchased a banana of late knows that there are many, many differing sizes and types of bananas and, if you really rely on the nutritional info for critical information, it's better to be accurate than estimate.
Good Application but limited serving options
This application is accurate in terms of the calorie content of the food, however, it is difficult to use because the serving sizes to choose from are impractical. For e.g. I typed in hard boiled egg, but instead of getting the calories for one egg, I received it for 100 grams, or a tablespoon.
This App. is a useful tool for approximately knowing the calories in most foods. If the people complaining about it don't know how to convert, add, or multiply; may be they need to go back to third grade!
Thanks, and keep up the good work.
