=== International Versions The problem with international versions is the food database. The US database is the only free one I found. A couple of days ago, a Canadian user pointed me to their database, which seems also to be free and has english and french food names. I'm currently in contact with Health Canada to incorporate their data. Now to Germany: there is a German food database, but the license fees are very high and I am forced to buy a 'high volume pack' in advance. In addition, there are a lot of other 'inconvinient' liciense terms. So, what is the solution? My idea is to take the US or the Canadian database and - for now - do an automatic translation into all major european languages (French, German, Spanish, Italian). If it won't work out very well, I'll have to take a look at the national food databases. I am currently working on an iPhone / iPod Touch version, which will be a complete redesign with lots of new features (tracking of body weight, fat, exercises, support for diabetics, etc.) and will make it very easy to replace and/or add other databases. I'll open up all this, so everyone can create a database and make it available for others to download. Of course, all this will go into the desktop version too. === Weight Watchers Yes, it is simply a matter of one column, but again, the food database is the main problem. Where to get the data from? In additon, I don't want to bloat Calories with all the possible diets out there. Anyway, Weight Watchers is very popular - at least here in Germany - and I'll contact them as soon as I have something exciting to show and possibly make a deal with them to include thier food data. Again, this should be very easy to do with the new food database design. === Personal Note When I started to develop Calories, the main idea for 1.0 was to just get a minimal version out. Because the US database was the only free one, I decided to concentrate on the US market. Calories is my first application at all and I am still a student. I don't have the time and the (financial) resources to develop a full fledged product with all the bells and whistles right from the start. Instead, I'm taking the 'agile' incremental way: Start with the minimal feature set and let it grow while listening to customer needs. Now here we are. I have set up a simple Google Group for this purpose and I'm going to further 'open' the development in the near future (with main ideas borrowed from the 'Scrum' methodology). The most important thing here is, there will be free beta versions right from the start. You'll be able to download it, try it out and give feedback. German and English are the development languages. Other languages will follow after the 1.0 release. So please, if you really like the product, participate and help me to get the product as *you* like it to be. -- Konstantin

It works well but there are tons of free alternatives (perfect diet for example) Too expensive. Period

Haven't used this app, but it costs about as much as two bags of Tostitos. Any app that gets used on a daily basis is easily worth $10 if it is significantly better than the free alternatives.

would be nice if you could quickly add food items inline and integrate a simple search as a drop down there. for example, i wish i could press Command+N to create a new line entry under the currently selected item or category, start typing and it autocompletes to show all matching foods, press Return to complete or Tab to enter quantity, etc. if nothing matches what I typed in, pressing Return would automatically create it as a new food item and i can enter details. as it is right now, you have to jump around to many different areas of the window and click a lot, which feels a bit disconnected. process flow could be much improved.

How does this compare to the free Loseit.com (which also has an iPhone/iPad app which syncs to the main Loseit site)? Does anyone have experience with both?

Loseit doesn't support the Metric system, which means it's useless unless you live in the US or UK

The LoseIt iPhone app isn't available in the UK iTunes store making LoseIt pretty much useless in the UK.

I've used this app for about 2 years since Calories 1 and it has some big problems: the speed of the app is SLOW, extremely slow. There are lots of features, huge food database but the app is like a snail and also it consumes a lot of RAM. Optimization!!!

Hi Ruben! Any performance issues should be solved since version 2.5 Current version is 2.6.3. In your particualar case I guess there is something wrong with the installation or the database is corrupted. Additionally you can try to deactivate all unused databases and foods.
