Nutracheck Launches an iPad App



Nutracheck, the UK’s No 1 selling Calorie Counter in Apple’s App Store, has launched a version specifically for Apple’s iPad

A new version of the industry-leading, Nutracheck calorie counting app has been launched with native iPad support. In addition to being re-imagined and re-designed specifically for the iPad, the app also includes some new features designed to enhance and enrich the user experience.

Use of the new iPad version of the Nutracheck app, complete with barcode scanner, is free to those who are already members of Nutracheck, the multi-award-winning online, food-diary based weight loss system. For non-members, iPad and iPhone use costs £3.99 per 30 days.

Tim Vryenhoef, Nutracheck’s Managing Director says: “We cannot ignore the growth of iPad use and whilst previous versions of our app functioned on this  platform we wanted to use the extra space available on the screen to create a better user experience with the app. Amongst design changes and usability tweaks we have added pictures for the food search results to enhance this feature.”

Complete Nutracheck online and app membership is priced from just £8.99 per month (with 3 months available for £24.99). Membership provides full access to all aspects of the Nutracheck weight loss system including: UK food database containing over 160,000 products with photos for fast identification and appropriate serving sizes; barcode scanning app (for Apple and Android) to easily update your food diary; a digital resource including over 500 recipe and meal ideas, eating guides and hundreds of articles; forums where members can access help, support and hints and tips; unique picture food diary complete with a variety of custom features; Food Triggers tool to help curb emotional eating and encourage good habits; and live virtual weigh-ins – just like a class weigh-in but online!

The Nutracheck system is also backed and supported by a team of top nutrition, fitness and medical advisors who are on hand to provide expert insight and guidance to members as well as advise on the on-going development of new tools and features. Nutracheck is sensible, safe, scientific and reassuringly fad free.

Nutracheck relies upon the tried and tested ‘food diary’ approach to weight loss, as various research studies undertaken demonstrate that keeping a food diary doubles diet weight loss*. Nutracheck’s Eat Track Lose process is a result of the research undertaken with its members which reveals that the more online food diary entries a member makes, the greater the weight loss they record – a fact that fully underlines the importance of engagement in relation to the success of weight loss initiatives – simply put if we’re interested, we’re motivated.
