After months and months of hard work, we are proud to announce the release of the new PhotoCalorie. No longer just an iPhone app, it is now a web-service available to all!
You can view our new site at PhotoCalorie.com. We have been working very hard to create what we believe is the easiest to use food journal on the planet. Below is a list of the major changes we have made in order to improve our service:
Automatically syncs with desktop:
Now that there is a desktop version, you will never be without your food journal. Whether you download use iPhone app or access the site through your smart phone, your entries will automatically update on your home computer.
Search for multiple foods at once, including serving sizes in the search:
Never before has a food journal been able to search for an entire meal and the serving sizes of each individual food with one step. The days of “search for one food > choose that food from a large list > choose the time you ate it > choose the servings >search for the next food > choose from a list…” are no longer.
Now all you need to do is type: food1 * serving size1, food2 *serving size2, etc.
Food Database 6X larger:
We have spent a lot of time improving our database. We have 6X more foods than before and all our serving sizes are standardized to the servings typically consumed. (They can be viewed here)
We have also dramatically improved the accuracy of our search, which is an on-going process.
It is free to search our database and download the iPhone app. We also are offering a 30 day free trial for all users for the rest of our features.
Hope you enjoy our progress!
