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

series and version of
the app has even more
