By Wombat Apps LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The ultimate carb counter is now available for the iPad! Track your carbohydrate intake the sleek and easy way.
Simply search or browse our extensive database of 100,000+ commonly eaten foods to assemble your daily meals. You'll be presented with a comprehensive report on your net carb, total carb, fiber, sugar, and calorie consumption.
While easy to learn, this app is also feature packed. You can quickly graph your net carb consumption, along with other macronutrients, vitamins and minerals. On each log and food detail page, you'll get a pie chart of protein/fat/carb as a % of calories. Plus, see *detailed* nutrition info, including vitamins and minerals.
While on Atkins and other low carb diets, it's important to monitor your vitamin and mineral intake. Carb Manager is the only carb tracker that tracks 30 vital nutrients and compares your values with the U.S. RDA.

What's New in Version 1.1.5
Fixed the graphs.
The app does a good job of tracking carbs, proteins, and fats; however, the pie chart generated to make it easier for user to track their food intake breakdown is way off. I have repeatedly sent off messages to the creator of the app (this feature is available within the app) but the creator never responds or corrects the problem. This makes me wonder whether or not their preprogrammed dietary values are accurate. Use caution with this app
I've been trying to get a response from the readers for weeks now. The pie chart still isn't accurate, and after a few weeks, the weight tracker stops accepting new inputs. The graph won't reflect new inputs. Don't know what is worse, inaccurate data or the fact the creator won't fix or acknowledge user concerns. Why have a built in feedback message system if the creator won't use it? I'd never buy this app again...it would be good, but the creator refuses to fix some major flaws
Simple and easy to use quickly
I appreciate the simplicity and how quickly it it to add foods. The existing database is very complete and has all foods that are in my current diet. The person commenting on the pie chart, doesn't understand the pie chart is a breakdown of where your total calorie intake is coming from (maybe a chart title would help clear up the confusion). Apply 4 calories for every gram of carbs and proteins, 9 calories for every gram of fat and the chart is correct. I use it to help plan my meals for the next day which also helps shopping at the grocery store ahead of time.
One simple change...
One easy change to this app would make a WORLD of difference.
I love many things about the app. The foods and portions are easy to log. The pie chart is nice. It's mostly an improvement over the Low GI diet app (which I have been using) for keeping track of carb load.
But why can't I add custom foods?! If I prepare a meal from scratch often, I don't want to have to go in and add every single ingredient every single time. Or if we go to a restaurant and they have nutritional info on their foods, it would be so easy to add that in. The Low GI app has the option to add a custom food. Why not this one?
