MealSnap: New App Calculates Calories Using Photos of Food

Apr 21, 2011
 



MealSnapWorried about how many calories you are going to consume in that slice of pizza, chocolate cake or bag of fries? A new iPhone application may help. After taking a picture of the meal with the phone, the app gives a calorie read-out almost instantly. Within seconds of taking a picture of a meal and matching it to a database of some 500,000 food items, MealSnap sends users an alert with a range of calories for the meal that was photographed,  making it easier to track the calories in food. MealSnap also serves as a food diary, allowing users to keep a visual log of the meals they have eaten. Just take a picture. MealSnap is available at the iTunes store.
