our app development back significantly.

6. What's been the worst bit?

App development has been our most

challenging hurdle. It is a very fast paced

and expensive market to be in. We have

lost a lot of money and have not been

able to update the app as quickly as we

would have wished. However, there is

light at the end of the tunnel; we're now

working with a UK based company, who

are working on the new Android and iOS

apps as we speak. We are really excited

about the relationship as it will ensure a

more stable future, with regular feature

updates and the ability for us to respond

more rapidly to customer feedback.

We're adding thousands more foods and

have some exciting features in the pipeline

for the next 12 months.

7. What's been the best bit?

The recognition for the work that we

have done and hearing from healthcare

professionals and our other customers

and readers about the positive impact we

have made to people's lives. We have

won five awards for the book and app.

In my NHS work I'm always humbled to

hear how the book and app have helped

people save time and be more accurate

with their carb counting.

8. What are future plans?

Currently we are working hard to get

the new app built and lots more food,

restaurants and fast food outlets added.

The app update will be released at the

same time on both Android and iOS.

We know our customers, particularly

those on Android, have had a long wait

for an update and we are very grateful

for everyone's patience. We are also

building a brand-new website and have

started initial work with the British Dietetic

Association Renal Nutrition Group on a

book for kidney disease. www.carbsandcals.com

The latest issue in the

series and version of

the app has even more

details, with symbols

indicating impact on

blood glucose levels of

food items.
