Product Update. Yesterday afternoon we launched version 1.2 of the Fooducate iPhone app.
We’ve made changes both on the iPhone side and on the server side to provide you with a better service. Here are the details.
Messaging – We’ve added a messaging feature that notifies you about products requiring your attention. For example – if there is a big recall of a peanut butter or some other product, we can notify you of this. Another example – If you scan a product that we don’t have in our database, we ask you to snap some photos and send them to us. Now we can notify you when the product has been entered into our database and has been graded.
Improved Navigation - You can now move much more intuitively from the “product view” screen back to the history screen or to the “my likes” screen
Clicking on the Help button in the main menu takes you to a FAQ screen (frequently asked questions) where we answer the most common questions we’ve been getting in user emails.
Preview before sharing – We’ve talked with users who are afraid to click on the “Share” button because they didn’t want to spam their friends. This is not the intention, so now when you click on share, you can preview and edit the content before sharing on Facebook / email / twitter. We’ve renamed the share button “sharing is caring“. Show your friends and family you care by sharing your Fooducation with them…
Aside from some minor bug fixes, that’s it.
Next up in our development plans is a search feature. We’ll let you know when that comes out.
A note for ANDROID phone owners – we are working hard to get an Android version of Fooducate out as soon as possible. We are not willing to compromise on the quality of the app, and due to the unique features of Android vs iPhone it’s taking a bit longer than we planned. Please sign up here to be notified when the Fooducate Android Beta will be available.
