I would like to see if it's possible to have the option of measuring food in Ounces. I measure most of my food by OZ but most of the food doesn't have that as an option - am I possibly missing a setting?

Unfortunately food items are either grams only or ounces only. It would be great if each food item could be switched from one to the other. That's what other websites do.

Lots of people use grams on the food scale. Simples.
Do you have a digital scale?

Also, it would be nice if there were a type-in for the amount. For example, milk is either a cup or a quart. Who uses that much on cereal? What if I only eat 1/4 C of Grape Nuts, but I get "charged" for 1/2 C because there's no other option?

you could put in that you eat .5 of the serving. then you should get the calories for the 1/4 c.

For volume measurements, ideally, there'd be some sort of built-in conversion so that if the food's originally entered (e.g.) as 1 cup, the app/web-site could do on-the-fly conversion to tablespoons, teaspoons, etc.

Conversion to/from grams/ounces would be useful too.

Liquid/weight translation's not so straight forward unfortunately... Would be nice if nutrition labels always used weight!
