A new version of Fooducate for iPhone is out today, with lots of goodies to help you eat a bit better.
First, we’ve brought the design up to iOS 7 and iOS 8 standards.
Next, the home screen has been redesigned and includes quick access to the app’s top 3 functions: the food scanner, the health tracker, and a new feature called discussions (see below). Under these three buttons you’ll see a feed that includes trending products and discussions.
Discussions are a new feature that enables community members to ask, discuss, and learn about any topic that is food, nutrition, or diet related. You can share a helpful tip, or your favorite recipe.
When you scan a food, the product screen is now organized into 4 tabs:
- product highlights – including its nutrition grade, calories, and top comments
- Explanations – a list of bullet point explanations describing the pros and cons of the products
- Nutrition – the products nutrition facts label and ingredient list
- Alternatives – a list of 10 healthier options, where relevant.
If you like a product or a discussion, you can follow it by tapping the star button at the bottom of the screen. You can easily comment on any product or discussion by tapping on the “Add your comment here” input area. You may initiate a new discussion from either the discussion screen or the home screen.
In the account screen, you can now easily update your email address, password, and profile picture. You can also add a little blurb about yourself.
Please update the app to version 4.00 and take it out for a spin. Let us know what you think!
