Overall Impressions from Around the Web:
Generally positive and enthusiastic reviews with some technical problems for Android users. Some reviewers noted that although the food database was large, some indicators (saturated fat, fiber) of interest to people with certain health concerns (i.e., diabetes and heart disease) were missing. Users also commented that they especially liked the social aspect of the app.
