What's New in Version 1.31
Minor bug fixing
It does not allow for me to search a meal to find the content. I wanted to search for kung pao chicken that I ate ate restuarant. It does not look this up to reveal the calories, fat, carbs etc. Must already enter a recipie or go off of their basic list of foods such as apples, boneless chicken, butter etc. I wish this would have a food database of common foods. I think this would be a great app if it had this feature as I don't cook at home for majority of my meals. I also wish it containted a large data base of easy recipes as then maybe I would cook more at home.
needs larger food database
Would be great if the large USDA food database were added to choose the ingredients from…or at least a way to import it since it is free from the USDA site. I bought specifically b/c it looked like I can get the total calories for a recipe as well as percentage of protein, carb, fat, and fiber…but will take some time to input all the info for specific ingredients not in the menu…would also like to be able to calculate the water content of the recipe.
What I was looking for
This app makes exactly what I wanted: calculate the calories of all my recipes in grams and percentage. Furthermore, with the Diary I can keep track of the calories you take each day and spending.
I think I'll download the iPad version too!
