If you need advice on whether the food you buy is a healthy meal or a calorie nightmare, FoodMeter: Good Food or Bad Food? aims to make it easier for you to decide. The developers, Viaden Mobile, say that the app is “simply the best tool on the App Store for those who care about their bodies, want to be fit and maintain their health.”
The app boasts of a barcode scanner that, with a single tap, will identify food items and evaluate how healthy they are. You can log the items or search for specific food products in a 300,000 strong database culled from restaurants and shops. The rating system is based on the widely used Food Score system which compares foodstuffs with their counterparts and rates them.
