The inspiration behind FoodyLife is that nowadays people pay little attention to what they eat and often eat unhealthy food. Although there are many similar apps on the market (e.g. Fitness App, Calorie counter...), most of them focus mainly on “numbers”, such as how many calories the user has eaten and how long the user should exercise to get rid of those calories, or sending the user notifications when they should get up to exercise or if they have eaten too much.
FoodyLife’ is an app that helps users track their daily diet by allowing them to keep their own food diary. The app shows neither calories nor numbers; instead, users have only to take a picture, enter their diet information, then they are able their overall diet balance. It is very simple and highly effective. Users can explore their eating habits visually, improving self-consciousness about eating habits.

Ratings and Reviews
I love this app. It’s easy to use and figure out what your portions are.
But, that being said I took a star for some improvements:
When adding a custom date you should be able to add a custom time if you want, in case you remember the time you had it.
I also think it should have a sweets category so it can tell you if you have had too many sweet things today. Or other things like, how do we tell what good things or bad things we get out of lemonade? What category does it go in?
Also, sometimes dairy isn’t just drinkable. Like cheese. There should be an option to put dairy on your plate and not just to the side. So for sweets and dairy, go ahead and just make 2 more spaces for food on the plate.
Also, I think it should be an option in settings if you want to add calories. Sometimes we may not know the calories like if you were at a restaurant without providing the calorie numbers for your order. But it should at least be an option in settings because I know I have wanted it. That way I can tell if I had to many calories that day (me basing it on a 2,000 calorie a day diet)
Also you could add the amount and the thing you did for exercise, so foody life could tell you if you need to eat more for your exercise routine. That also could just be an option in settings.
I can’t wit to see this app grow. Please consider my ideas.
Not ready for prime time
A couple stars for the idea, but this has a long way to go before being useful.
First, no option for imperial measurements, need to manually convert your weight to cm and kg if in the US. Why not just pull and push to Apple Health?
Next, interface is very complicated and unintuitive, which seems to be two things the author believes he made the app to avoid. I started to document my breakfast by taking a shot of my coffee with butter and MCT oil- aaaand... there are things at the bottom which seem to be base categories like fruit, dairy etc. Tapped on “dairy” (closest I could find) and nothing happened. Tapped on “fruit” to add my banana and it associated “fruit” with the coffee and then proceeded.
Lastly, it seems that nearly all the effort has gone into data mining, which doesn’t thrill me. If that’s the business model then so be it, if I liked the app I’d prefer to buy my privacy.
This would be an awesome idea if implemented correctly. Take photos of a meal, maybe use a little optional AI to try identifying meal components and let me manually set up items I frequently eat. But I strongly disagree with the priorities and organization of the current design. Hope the developer takes the idea and reworks it because it’s the seed of a great idea, especially for those who find themselves in situations where they want to make food entries but don’t always like writing while they eat.
