If you follow me on Twitter then you know that I’m a big advocate for MyFitnessPal. The app and service allows you to easily track your diet along with your weight and other measurements to help you live a healthy(ier) lifestyle. Now if you really have been following me a while then you know that I use to weight 290lb (131kg) about 5 years ago and today (as of 4:30 this morning) I weigh 180lb (81.6kg). It’s taken a lot of work and part of that effort has been through diet tracking. That’s where the MyFitnessPal app comes into the equation.
Yesterday the company updated their iOS app to be a universal app across all devices, eliminating the HD version for
iPad. While data had already been synchronised across devices in previous releases, the new universal app should make it easier for everyone to download the free MyFitnessPal app once and it is on all their device.
In addition the MyFitnessPal app now has a new related foods suggestion in your diary. Now when you add food to your diary, the app will give you related items that you have paired with that food previously. It makes adding items you eat regularly easier and quicker. Throughout the app you will also find Quick Tips that pop up or are integrated into your timeline. These tips are designed to give you ideas on how to use the app better or more efficiently.
The MyFitnessPal app is free as is the service and this new update requires your device be running iOS 6.0 or later on your devices.
