Nowadays it seems like fitness apps are as popular as games, and there certainly isn’t a shortage of them. Variety is good, though, and it means that there’s almost always an app out there that’s perfect for someone.
FitClick Talk-to-Track Diet is perfect for health-minded iOS users who want to stay on track with their diet on the go.
It features voice input and quick food tracking capabilities so you can keep tabs on your diet with ease.
Concept and Functionality:
Food trackers usually come in one of two forms; complex and thorough or quick and simple. FitClick, from Genesant Technologies, Inc., falls in the latter category thanks to its simple design and basic functions.
To use FitClick you’ll need to create an account within the app. Once that’s set up, you can begin tracking meals by tapping on the text area and typing or speaking different foods. All of your foods must be separated by commas and can easily be broken down into a nutrient list by tapping on entries.
One of the things I noticed about FitClick is that it pulls from a database of foods if you’re not specific regarding types of meals. You can edit foods by tapping on the list if the app doesn’t add the correct food to your list.
My favorite feature of FitClick is voice support, which makes tracking food a breeze.
It seems to be pretty accurate and is what the app is actually built around. The developers have really thought through how to make the process as easy as possible. Besides voice input, you can make a comma separated list instead of having to search for each food or drink individually.
Another cool feature is the option to enter a custom caloric intake amount for goal tracking. There are a couple of things that seem to be missing. One is support for notifications, especially at customizable times. For example, we’d love to see a notification prior to dinnertime telling you where you stand with your daily caloric target.
We also think this app would be perfect for the Apple Watch. Hopefully that update is on the way.
FitClick is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone and iPad. I couldn’t find any in-app purchases, which is definitely good news.
Overall I think FitClick is a great calorie tracker that offers many unique features, especially for those who are looking for something that lets them track items on the fly.
You’ll likely have to tweak your list later if you’re looking for accuracy, but it’s still great for keeping tabs on meals quickly.
FitClick Talk-to-Track Diet requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
