Body Mass Index (BMI) / Growth DASHBOARD
Teen BMI opens your BMI/Growth dashboard with everything you need to know. Your height and weight, Body Mass Index and its relative category, the growth percentiles for your height and weight and a revolutionary chart at the bottom so you see the results instantly!
All you need to do is touch any information you see to bring up the right page or visual element to edit it. Entering your gender, age, height and weight is all you need to do for activating the BMI calculation, category coloring and the growth chart slider bar at the bottom!
BODY MASS INDEX
The BMI button is colored according to the category in which the BMI falls into. When you touch it, the BMI interactive table is displayed with the BMI large smoked glass slider showing you immediately where you stand: Severely Underweight, Underweight, Normal, Overweight and Obese. Your position is shown by a see-through line in the middle. Move the glass panel with your finger to see how much you need to gain or lose to change category. It's that easy! It's fun, handy and simple... isn't that what iPhone apps are supposed to be?
GROWTH CHARTS RIGHT INTO YOUR iPHONE or iPOD TOUCH!
From 13 to 19 years, any teenager can enter their data and see their growth percentiles. Doctors use "Centers for Disease Control" CDC growth charts to provide percentiles; Teen BMI calculates the percentiles from the data CDC uses to print the doctor's charts!
EXCLUSIVE FEATURE: VISUAL GROWTH PERCENTILE
The doctor's growth charts are somewhat complex looking and you need to know how to lookup information on them to find your percentile. Teen BMI displays a visual translucent bar on male/female outlines to show you these percentiles a straightforward way. You will know right away if most people your age are taller or shorter, heavier or lighter.
The Body Mass Index is the rating used by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), by the World Health Organization (WHO) and by doctors who rate you with it just as governments rate the whole population for obesity tracking!
Getting to know your BMI range is an important step towards getting yourself to the right weight for you to live a healthier lifestyle. Don't start smoking. Eat smart. Exercise regularly. Help yourself achieve a healthier weight by knowing your BMI with Teen BMI.
Enjoying a healthier lifestyle will not only make you feel better, but you shall see the friends around you change for the better.

Don't listen to them
First off, the app was working great but now it crashes as soon as I open it. Now the important part:
All those other reviews are people who can't accept what they are. This app is simply trying to help others learn. I see reviews by girls that say they're 2 inches shorter and 2 years younger than me. And they weigh 45 lbs more. Please understand this app is trying to help you.
This app is incredibly inaccurate in a terrifying way. I'm a year into recovery from an eating disorder I used this app regularly while I had anorexia. If I were to reach the apps consideration of a low normal, I'd have to weigh about 85 lbs. I'm currently 5"1. If I weighed 85 pounds I'd likely be in a hospital bed. I'm slightly overweight currently but this app suggests that I'm almost obese despite only being 20lbs heavier than normal. This app should be immediately taken off the AppStore it's incredibly dangerous to the mindsets of literally anyone. It can fuel or even provoke eating disorders. Do NOT download this app it is not accurate at all!
Stop over exaggerating
This app is very acute. I'm 5'5 and weigh 110 and my BMI is where it should be. Girls, I'm sorry to break it to you but you're over exaggerating. If you think this is wrong, go check online. My BMI is the same on this app than it is on other BMI calculators. Stop trying to pretend that you're skinnier than you are. This app is amazing no matter what.
