A daily use App
Calorie Counter Plus have all the features from gigantic food and activities database to tracking B.M.I, water consumption, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. The user interface is simply outstanding as all the necessary buttons are provided on the main screen and your stats are presented in form of various graphs. You can set your own goals like weight loss/gain and app calculates and keeps track of your daily calorie requirements. The app also provides us with option to add your own dishes and activities to the originally existing database. The app also includes a Calorie Counter magazine which gets monthly updates and includes articles, health tips and also recipes which can be added directly to the already existing appís recipeís database for future reference.

I would love to see following changes being updated as future update:-
1) Ability to share our favorite recipes and stats via Twitter or Facebook
2) A free subscription for a limited time like a week so people can see the benefits of getting subscriptions.

Overall a must buy for every fitness enthusiast.

After trying the free version of this app I decide to buy the full version. I'm on diet lately and also want to keep my body healthy. After using it for a while, I realize that I can't live without it. Customizable diet and activity plans can be created easily. The food database is abundant as promised I can find all the food we eat everyday in the database. The changes to your body can be easily monitored by the summary graph from the Body tracker. It helps alot to keep our body health. Highly recommended.

Update my review after I used this app for sometime. It really helped me a lot to keep my body healthy. Now I'm trying to eat more healthy food and do more excise everyday. I don't want to sit all day at home or at work anymore.
Some suggestions:
1. Can I use one single account in all Viaden apps?
2. Can you provide iCloud support in addition to Dropbox? Although the Dropbox is already good enough for me to sync between my several devices.
3. It would be better if you could provide an option to duplicate foods I eat everyday with one click. I eat pretty much the same everyday.
4. It would be better if you could provide some notifications to notify me to do some exercises.
5. Retina support for new iPad please

Thank you for the awesome app. Keep up the good work.

Great Calorie Counter app!
After using free version Calorie Counter app I decided to buy this one because the app is worth it! This is the best Calorie Counter app I've ever seen in the AppStore! Very nice interface and easy to use! Best app if you want to lose weight. You can also create your own goals for weight or achieve it step by step, monitoring your body parameters. There is huge food database. It's possible to add food to your database with Barcode Scanner if you not found it. There is also Calorie Counter Magazine where you can find articles and tips for health, nutrition and fitness or you can add to the database your own recipes. Very useful app! Definitely recommend this great app!
Some suggestions:
- Add more activities in database because it's not comprehensive. For example, it doesn't recognize inline skating as an activity and asks to identify the amount of calories burned.
- Add offer guidelines on healthy measurements or ratios in diary section

Excepting the main feature which is counting calories this app contains many features such as calorie counter magazine, tracks a variety of nutrients, including total protein, fats, cholesterol etc., allows you to create your own diet and activity plan, body tracker for registering the changes of your body parameters. Also this app has advanced statistics with great colorful graphics. Really great calorie counter app with so many useful functions! Try it!
Some suggestions:
- add ability to share recipes on Social networks;
- add ability to sign in via Twitter account.

Hey, why don't you start some events on your Facebook and Twitter page?

Your Delicious Calorie Counter

Viaden is known for the polished interface design and powerful functions of their apps. But Calorie Counter has taken it to another level. It looks as delicious as Delicious Library, and yet the app is packed with tons of features that will surprise you from time to time.

The UI looks extremely polished and sophisticated. It seems like every pixel fell as a tear from an angel. But good interface design is never only about prettiness. The designers knows exactly what they are doing. Since it's a universal app, it has to adapt itself to the screens of both iPhone and iPad. Of course, it does an amazing job. But more than just that, I am glad to find out the developers especially optimize the design for iPad. Whether it's for a horizontal or a vertical layout, the app always looks amazing!

The app is not just a beautiful app. It's useful and very easy to use as well. I leaned how to use this app in an instant. It's very self-explanatory, but that doesn't mean it lacks functionality. Calorie Counter has a huge database. So basically, all you have to do is add the food you ate, the app will finish all the tedious chores and boring calculating. You can easily tell your intake of calories, fat, protein, fiber, and so on. Besides, all the data can be visualized in form of graphs and it's clear to read your summary like this. The app also supports Dropbox sync. Now I can take down whatever food I eat immediately on my iPhone and read the detailed summary on my iPad at home.

Some suggestions I'd like to make:

1. iCloud, universal profile, and intergration

I appreciate the signing in with Facebook feature. But still, I hope an iCloud sync option will be available soon. I know this can be tricky. But it will not only make this this app a lot better, it will benefit all Viaden health apps. It's kind of frustrating that you have to set up profile everytime when you open a app from the same developer. I expect I can have a universal profile once and for all. For example, when I did yoga (following All-in Yoga), I can know how much calorie I burnt in Calorie Counter.

At this moment, the Dropbox sync can be done automatically. I think sync needs to be done automatically. It's more convenient for users. A universal profile can help better intertergrate all these health app together. Not only users who use more than one of these health app will be grateful for this, I think it will also help Viaden build its brand.

2. Barcode scanner for everyone

Although I prefer to type the name and search, barcode code might come in handy once in a while. For non-subscription users, they might need this feature as well. But typing the digits seems slow and old-fashioned. Since most apps offer barcode scanning for free, it seems unreasonable to charge people for such a basic feature.

3. Legibility And Readability

On iPad, most text is too small to read, such as "Cholesterol......" on the food screen. And I really don't like the idea of vertical text. Since the app can also track blood pressure, I recommended it to my father. But he quited using it only after a week. I asked him why and he told me the text was "tiny". Too bad, this could be very helpful for eldly people.

4. Automatic Diet Planning

Recently, I find a website called Swole.me. You tell it it how many calories you want to eat, over how many meals, and itíll create a list of foods thatíll match the number of calories you want to eat, as well as have the proper balance of proteins, fats, and carbs. I hope Calorie Counter can implement a similar feature.

5. Reminders

When you are about to have you meals, Calorie Counter will show a notification in the notification center so that you won't forget to track your meals.

6. Progress bar and quote

Show a progress bar (like the one on iPhone version) on iPad. And I'd like to see a quote or a tip about how to keep healthy on the first screen.

7. Minor tweaks

I also have a suggestion about the gear icon next to the twitter icon on the food page. I think, first, the icon (which is supposed to add and rearrange the nutrients list) should sit on the right side of "Consumed Food" section; second the gear icon is very misleading. At first I thought it was for the setting of the whole app. I suggest to replace it will a plus icon (+).
Moreover, I hope the text "tap here to add food" can have a button background. The text is small and not prominent enough.
The charts in the Summary need more polishing. I hope they will look like those made with Keynote.

I highly recommend this app to every iDevice owners. After all, it is a top-notch app. App Store has named Calorie Counter the best of the iPad Health & Fitness category in App Store Rewind 2011, and I think you will be impressed by its design and function.

Hands down to the best calorie counter on App Store!

Perfect Calorie Counter for Keeping Fit!
The Facebook login feature is really so convenient and sweet!
To put it in my sister's words, this app can't be more perfect. She uses this app everyday now and it's on her iPhone's home screen dock.
Brilliant and amazing user-interface and graphics! So easy to use even girls like my sister who totally has no idea of calorie energy or healthy diets can simply get started without obstacles. She never cares things such as food database or synchronization, in fact she doesn't even know about these words at all. She just makes plans to lose weight and follow its advice to be on a diet, scans the barcode while shopping the food and drinks, reads the articles on magazines, sometimes tries to cook herself by the recipes (I have to admit that sometimes she cooks quite well). And it obviously does amazing work since she takes much less junk food than before and looks energetic all day, I am so glad I can enjoy all the snacks alone now! Lol... Oh, fat again, maybe I should lose some weight with this app, too. XD... Very convenient and considerate app! Super love!
Definitely the best calorie counter in app store for diet to keep sharp!
Great deal saves a lot, Worth far more than its price!
Never miss this awesome app if you gonna lose weight or keep a diet!
Features I'd like to see in future update:
1, multi-language support so that more people could easily get access to this awesome app in other countries;
2, multi-user profile support so that family members can share this app easily and conveniently;
3, Features like recommending food or restaurants based on local customs and seasons;
4, Retina Display optimition for the New iPad;
5, More subscription choices added would be appreciated;
6, Social media sharing feature added such as "My favorite recipe or food";
7, Twitter login feature added as well.
Thanks for the contest and chance!

In case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight.
