Tracks body data including water and bone
Danholt4mac has launched Calories 2, an upgrade to its calorie tracking and nutrition program. The second edition has been improved with a variety of features including weight tracking, body analysis data such as fat, water, muscle and bone, and up to eight custom meals with individual timeframe assignments. The software can also retrieve data from the WiThings Wi-Fi body scale, which automatically stores information on a WiThings account.
Charts display everything from body data through to consumed calories in a common timeline. User profiles can be used to set weight goals or personal limits, and the app can now be bought with a family license, which allows for up to five different user accounts. Enhancements have been made for data entry through the balance and calendar panels.
Calories 1.5 owners can upgrade for $8, while a new license is priced at $20 for individuals, and $40 for a family. A free 30-day demo is also available; the app requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher.
