The MyFitnessPal app for iPhone and iPad has been updated to bring you more features to the app that were until now only available on the MyFitnessPal website. The newest update now gives you the ability to track your nutrition goals in detail along with a friendlier invitation system for your friends and improved trend graphs.
The big new feature is the ability to track specific nutrition goals. So if you require a special diet – Low Sodium for example – you can now adjust the nutrition goal for sodium to get to your doctor recommended level. In all there are 17 nutrition goals you can set from the amount of fat and cholesterol you consume to tracking key vitamins like Vitamin C. The ability to set these macro goals has been a part of the MyFitnessPal website but not on the mobile apps.
MyFitnessPal has also improved the invitation system that is in the MyFitnessPal app to be a bit more friendlier than in
previous updates. This update focuses on Facebook and before if you invited a friend from Facebook to join MyFitnessPal and link up with you, they would only see your MyFitnessPal username. That’s fine in my case as my user name is ClintonAlliOSNews and most of my friends & family will figure out quickly enough it is me. But if your user name GymRateMistro, nobody will have a clue who you are on Facebook.
Now when you place an invite to a Facebook friend, it comes across to them with your Facebook name so they know who the invitation has come from on their friend’s list.
The popular Evernote note taking app and service has been updated for iOS. The new Evernote for iOS app sports a host of changing, most notably a completely customisable Home screen and new light and dark display themes. The update comes on the heels of some background updates the company made to their servers which brought up to four times faster synchronisation.
The new Evernote for iOS Home screen does not have a substantially different look than it did before but now you can customise the layout of that screen to better suit your personal usage of the app. By tapping the settings (gear icon next to your name) and selecting “Customize Home Screen”, you can arrange or hide elements that are on your home screen. For example, you may want your notebooks ahead of your notes in the order on your Home screen or you may want to hide the Tags section. It is a far greater level of customisation that Evernote has ever had in their iOS app.

Power APP AG announced the release of version 3.0 of Wrap Camera, their picture editing app that allows wrapping and rolling of pictures as if they were printed on paper.
With this version Wrap Camera is ready for iOS7. As part of the update also new functions have been added to the app.
“Ensuring compatibility with iOS7 was the main goal of this update, which is why we jumped directly to version 3. But both we and our customers felt the need to have more functions available, so that all the editing can be done in a single app, avoiding having to switch to a separate app just for one type of special effect. Adding brushes, speech bubbles, white balancing, split functions and additional filters completes Wrap Camera even more” states Christian Schaffner, GM of Power APP.
New functions include brushes for painting and blurring/bokeh, cropping/zooming functions as well as additional finishing filters.
