FOOD

App gets refresh

Updated Carbs & Cals iOS app

launches in December '21.

The latest version of the

popular Carbs & Cals app was

launched on Android in July.

In December the app will be

released on iOS too. From that point,

both platforms will always have the

same features and foods, and any new

functions and content will be added

to both apps at the same time.

If you currently use, or have

previously purchased, the Carbs &

Cals iOS app, be aware that the app

has been totally redesigned with new

and updated features to enhance

your experience. There is a fresh

new design and more intuitive user

interface and a bigger database of

UK foods, including lots more raw

ingredients and plant-based options

with more than 5,000 photos. Going

forward, it is now possible to update

the app regularly, squash bugs, tweak

the design and add useful features.

If you are an existing iOS user

and have previously purchased the

previous version of the Carbs & Cals

app, you will get lifetime access

to the 'legacy' plan, which means

that you will get access to all the

foods in the app that you previously

purchased. You will also get one year

of free access to the 'unlimited' plan.

Your custom foods will be migrated

from the old app to the new one.

However, as the food database has

been significantly upgraded, diary

entries will start afresh, which means

you won't see any diary data from

your old app if you update, but if you

need to retain your existing diary

entries or need any of the removed

features, consider not updating the

app on your device for now

New features

Full menus (including photos) for

Burger King, Costa Coffee, Krispy

Kreme, McDonald's, Subway,

Wagamama, Pizza Express, Nando's,

KFC, Domino's - and more. Food

products (including photos and

portion sizes) for popular UK brands

such as Cadbury, Walkers, Doritos

and KitKat, and more will be added

over time.

There is also a new recipe area,

where you can build your own

home-made recipes that easily show

the nutritional info per serving.

The app has been expanded with

greater access to foods from African,

Arabic, Caribbean and South Asian

communities in the UK (from the

Carbs & Cals World Foods book). In

addition, the carb content of foods

is displayed as blood glucose icons,

visually highlighting each portion's

possible effect on someone's blood

glucose level.

The subscription model has

also been updated so that regular

updates can be supplied along with

new features and an expanding the

food database. The Starter Plan -

with limited foods and features - is

available for free. The Unlimited

Plan, with the full range of foods and

features, is available on a monthly or

yearly fee.

Removed features

The exercise area is gone for now,

but it will be back in a later update.

Likewise, country databases (other

than that of the UK) are gone for

now, but they will be back in a later

update. The preciously available diary

download has also been removed for

the time being, but may be added

back in later, depending on demand.

Ditto, the backup feature has been

removed for now, as research is

being undertaken to initiate a more

effective way to backup and sync

between devices.

What's next

Chris Cheyette and Yello Balolia, the

founders and authors of Carbs &

Cals, "This is the first of many regular

updates we have planned. A sneak

peek of the features and content

we hope to add to the app in the

coming months include lots more

of familiar brands - such BirdsEye,

Coca-Cola, Heinz, Kellogg's, and

Quaker - will be added to the food

database. In addition, we'll be adding

more restaurants, ingredients, plantbased

foods to the database, as well

as your food and drink requests and

suggestions. We will be adding in

recipes from the Carbs & Cals books."

Android users

Android users will get an update

too, which will contain data on more

popular restaurants (such as Pizza

Express, Nando's, KFC and Domino's).

The Targets area will be reinstated

so that users can set up and track

your daily nutrient targets, complete

with graph.
