Nutrition Facts is a nutritional info search tool that generates "Nutrition Facts" labels (including foods that never had a label). Imagine having a simple, easy-to-read label for a McDonald's burger. Well, now it's doable!
I hope you like it. The API that I hooked into (FatSecret) was difficult to port so I had to perform a couple of work-arounds. Additionally, I'm admittedly not the greatest fan of their searching algorythms (which I have no control over). Nevertheless, it's a fully functional app that does just one thing, and happens to do it particularly well. Enjoy!
The source is currently closed, but I'm open to ideas or partners if this app strikes genius in someone else. If you like it, donations are always appreciated.
- Being so highly online-dependent, the initial search screen can take a moment to load. However, there is no "loading" status so it can appear to "hang".
To Do List:
- Implement some sort of "loading" status.
- "Prettify" the search results.
- Include functionality to return to search results instead of running an all-new search (a short-coming of the API's compatibility with WebOS).
