I wish it was more like the iPhone app
When I purchased this I thought that it would be more like the iPhone app. Having a list of restraunts is a good idea but I really wish that I could do all the same things that I can do with this app on my phone. It would be great if I could track calories, fat, protein, carbs, and water intake. It would also be nice if this app allowed you to put in exercise, as well as enter custom foods like the iPhone app does! I'm kinda upset that I wasted money on this. Hopefully updates to this app in the future will bring back the things that I love about the iPhone app.
Another good feature for this app would be to allow you to sync it with your iPhone/iPad. That way you only have to enter info once. However, that's kinda a moot point right now since you can't track nutrition on this app yet!
I'm crossing my fingers that the creators of this app will soon add the features that I love about the iPhone app.
It might work for you if....
If you are looking for an app that simply serves as a database for food information, than this app does a decent job. What you gain in the shear massive size of the database you give up in the completeness of the data... quantity before quality I believe was the goal here.
If however you are looking for an app to track and plan your diet with then I would not recommend this app at all. There is no feature to allow for you to catalogue your daily intake or plan a meal for certain levels of carbs or protein.
Overall, I would not recommend this app to a friend. The price is very attractive but in the end you get what you pay for.
Etreamly Useful and Accurate
I manage my caloric intake religiously - that is after I lost 80 lbs a year ago - easiest way to gain weight all back is dinner out or travel on business - I use to carry around bunch of menus with Calories (MacDonalds, The Keg, etc.. ) this is impressive software lot of work to complie this and from what I can see did a great job.
easy to use and very useful - Had a 7 oz Salmon dinner at Longhorn and guessed calories - looked up in this data base and was dead on ..
