Get the Inside Look

The Foodle app really provides an inside look at what you're eating. Find complete nutritional information on more than 8,000 different foods. This app comes in handy for all kinds of reasons: weight control, dietary restrictions, and allowing you to make healthier choices. If you have ever wondered how much iron is in your daily bowl of oatmeal, how much vitamin C is in an orange, or what the protein is in a yogurt, then this is the place to find it. Each food features a complete rundown of its nutritional facts such as its calories, total fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, sugars, fiber, protein, and more.

The app currently has 3.5 out of five stars from users who are seeing its merits but still feel there is room for improvement. They like how fast and easy it is to use and its in-depth analysis of the food. In its latest update there was a crash fix for those using the iPad.

The User Experience

Finding what you're looking for is easy thanks to the fact you can search by the food's name or category. If you have foods you eat on a regular basis you may want to add them to your favorites list. What's really cool is that you can search by nutritional content meaning you can search for foods high in a particular vitamin or mineral. This is the kind of tool that helps those with dietary restrictions or specific needs. If you are trying to steer clear of dairy, eggs, packaged foods, or processed foods you can also refer to this health and fitness reference app.

I find the app incredibly easy to use, but the content feels lacking. While 8,000 foods sounds like a lot at first you will quickly come to the realization it's just a drop in the bucket compared to what's out there. I’d like to see more food added in order to make this a strong offering.
