A diet and fitness app that I have continued to use since it first launched. It's not perfect but offers a very wide range of nutrional info, custom menu/items, and overall - it gets the job done.

Nick Evans is a well known Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in bodybuilding. He’s received kudos from the editor of MuscleMag, IronMan Magazine and from other specialized bodybuilding websites and magazines. He has written the book, Men’s Body Sculpting as well as several DVDs on the subject.
Now he’s bringing his expertise to the iOS app world, with the new app, Men’s Body Sculpting: Muscle Mass Generator. The app details his specific program for the development of lean muscle mass, including specific exercises and nutritional information in the form of a nutrition calculator, in which users can enter their own personal data and receive specific suggestions for what and how much to eat while training. In addition, the app uses the iOS device camera to help prospective muscle-men and women create a photographic log of their progress. Measurements can be set to either metric or Imperial measures, as well.
Men’s Body Sculpting: Muscle Mass Generator can be used by folks training for a specific sport as well as those just wishing to change their body’s muscular makeup, and is available now for $2.99 in the App Store.

Without this one indespensable app, the world may have fallen into complete chaos. In fact, now that it’s here we’re almost positive that we’ll never be able to even consider a time when we weren’t able to locate the nearest Girl Scout Cookie sale on our phones. It’s like thinking of an age without the internet, TV, electricity or even fire. Unfathomable.
What’s obviously been done in good spirit by the Kellog Company, makers of this application, is so very easy for us to tease. But this is certainly a fun, easygoing application meant to entertain and take shots at boosting sales. Sure, we jest, but the Girl Scout Cookie lovers that download this app for a simple chuckle may actually use it once or twice to find their nearest fundraising pack of children. They’ll even be presented with the reserved hours of said cookie sale with this application. They’ll run out to buy the baked treats by the box, and when that happens: mission accomplished.
Beyond just finding cookies, this application lets users look up nutrition facts and remember the tricky names that belong to the treats they love so much. You’ll also be able to take a personality test that links you to your destined cookie (look to the cookie…).
Useless for some, incredible for many, this Girl Scout Cookie locator is an excellent, if not a slightly ridiculous, addition to the App Store. Before you go criticizing too hard, just remember that this product is little more than a marketing tool. And a good one at that. We only wish the entire thing was presented with more of a sense of urgency. Perhaps even a simulated cookie radar would have been a nice touch. Just spitballing here.
Hit the “Find Cookies Nearby” button and go enjoy a Samoa. You earned it.
Perennially one of the most popular downloads from the App Store, Lose It ! is a beautiful, intuitive and complete nutritional database and statistic tracker. The fact that it is available for free is icing on an already well baked cake, so to speak.
