Edibles for iPhone/iPod
Random Ideas has announced the release of Edibles, an app for the iPhone and iPod touch. The software is a food journal, used to track calories, carbs, WeightWatchers points and other values typically tracked when following a diet regimen. The application allows users to set a "budget" for whatever value they are tracking, and then follow weekly and daily allowances based on this figure.
Foods can be entered into Edibles' database on the go, and once they are added they can easily be reused without having to enter it a second time. At present there is no pre-populated food database, but Random Ideas says it is investigating the idea.
The application can be bought in the App Store for $6. Random Ideas' mission statement claims that it will donate 5 percent of its total pre-tax profits to charity, specifically "Feed the Children."
