New App for the easiest to break of all New Year's resolutions
Yep - it's that time of year again! A new start-up has just released a cool new App called Quickka Calories to help you on your way towards a healthy lifestyle in 2010.
It's not just a calorie counter (although that is of course a big part of it). Drawing from a comprehensive database of the most common branded and non-branded food products, this cool little App lets you check the caloric and nutritional content of what you're about to eat in a matter of seconds.
In addition to doing all those useful calculations for you (like working out your BMI, your basic metabolic rate and how many calories you should be eating to achieve your target weight), Quickka Calories lets you track what you've eaten, check how many calories you've burned through exercising, and monitor your progress towards your target weight. The graphics are pretty cool and it even comes with a fun gimmick; consumers in the UK can buy the "PRO" version which lets them scan the barcode of popular snack items using the iPhone's camera. Aim and shoot - and the nutritional information pops up instantly!
Check it out at Quickka Calories or search for Quickka Calories on the App Store to see what it's all about!
