iOS Update 3.3 Now Available: View and Copy Friend's Diaries, Decimal Servings Entry, and More
***UPDATE: I added a note about a change in the weekly net calorie view explaining why we made the change, and how people can still retrieve the old value. See below for more info.
We've just released a new update to our iPhone app! Here's a rundown of the new features:
- View and copy friends' diaries: By default, your food and exercise diary is completely private. But if you'd like, you can now elect to share your diary with your friends in the app. Your friends can then view your diary from within the app, and copy entire meals you've logged to their own diary. We hope this will be useful for people who usually dine together. Now only one person has to log the meal; the other can view their diary and copy all of the entries with just a couple taps.
- Decimal servings option: We've added a decimal toggle to the dialog for entering the number of servings you've eaten of a particular food. By tapping the Decimal button, you can now enter the number of servings you are using a numeric keypad instead of the old fraction scroll-wheel. This should be particularly useful for people weighing their foods in grams. Instead of having to scroll all the way to 98, you can now just tap "98" on the keypad - plus, you can enter in a number of servings greater than 99.
- Barcode scanner now works with fixed focus cameras: We've improved our barcode scanner so that it now works on additional devices such as the iPod Touch and iPad 2.
- Weekly graph now shows weekly total: Many of our users manage their calories on a weekly, not daily basis. On the weekly view from the Home screen, we had always intended to show your weekly total, i.e. how many calories over or under you are for the entire week. However, we had mistakenly shown a daily average number there instead. This has now been fixed, and the weekly number is correctly displayed in this version. If you are looking for the old average number, you can hold your finger on the "Avg" column in the graph, and the numeric value will appear above the column.
