MealSnap: Possibly the coolest foodie app ever?

When it comes to the Blackberry v/s iPhone battle, I have always firmly been part of the BB camp. That was until recently when I found out about possibly the coolest iPhone App! Might possibly be because it is food related..

The way it works is simple, take a picture of your food (which we all do anyway right - or is it just me?) and et voila it tells you what you are eating and approximately how many calories it has!

Is it wrong to want an iPhone just for a single app? If you've tried it, let me know what you thought! I am curious to know if their database of 500,000 foods has many Arabic or Desi specialties in it.

I am someone who need this. Too bad the iphone and I aren't very good friends. (I hate the touchscreen!)

This app kinda scares me ! i mean well i DO try to eat healthy ( Though my waist would disagree ) but i have lots of lapses :D... love your blog . Just a thought though. would love if you had a "subscribe by email" button... it just makes it easier for us who dont use blogger :)...

Thanks for the feedback Shafeena.. glad you like the site! The email button sounds like a great idea - shall be added shortly :)

This app is quite scary but having tried it now I can say it gives you very rough approximations of what you're eating which can vary greatly.. but I suppose what it does is still quite amazing! It can only improve over time I suppose and anything that can help us monitor our calories surely cant be a bad thing esp if you are like me and have a bad sweet tooth! :D
