Log daily Soylent meals in Apple's Health App. This app logs:
Soylent is a meal replacement beverage, advertised as a "staple meal", available in both liquid and powdered forms. Its creators state that Soylent meets all nutritional requirements for an average adult. It includes all of the elements of a healthy diet, without excess amounts of sugars, saturated fats, or cholesterol. It was created by software engineer Rob Rhinehart as a self-experiment in nutrition and is now marketed and sold by Rosa Labs. As of 2015, there is no published scientific evidence on the risks or benefits of Soylent itself. The manufacturer says it is based on recommendations of the Institute of Medicine and that it is approved as a food by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
In this update, I optimized the app for iOS 11.

Ratings and Reviews
Happy to see the app was updated to support the brand new Soylent Cafe ready-to-drink meals.
Though I think $10 is a bit steep for this, I love the simple interface and ease of use. I plan on 100% replacing my meals with Soylent in the near future, I think this app will definitely help with it.
Hopefully in a future update, you can add Nectar and Cacao (unless they have the same nutrients as 2.0, haven't personally checked yet).
Other bits of feedback I'd personally like to see:
-Hide the buttons at the top, maybe put them in a separate screen or in the Settings app.
-Ability to hide options I'll never use. I'm never going to buy the Soylent powder, and probably won't get anymore Bars. And I'll never drink 0.1 or 0.5 of a bottle, it's always 100%. It'd be nice to declutter the main screen with those out.
-The fonts on the wheels look a little bit stretched horizontally. It doesn't break usage at all, it just looks a little off. Maybe squeeze them back into the center a little bit, would help with the presentation.
-Landscape mode? Not super important, I use my iPhone a lot in landscape as it fits nicely into my keyboard's stand, just something I like to see in as many apps as possible.
Anyway, thank you for building this app! The closest thing I can find to something like this is Myfitnesspal or other calorie counter apps - which is a lot more than what I personally need in a Soylent tracker.

Hi Brian1010101, I'm happy to report that the app now supports Nectar/Cacao, as well as all of the caffeinated Soylent Cafe products. Besides that, your review has fantastic suggestions! I'll happily try to implement any/all of them. Feel free to follow up with an email if you have any more suggestions or concerns. Best, Krister
This is a great way to track soylent usage. I wish the app would let us have a little bit more control over the data that it sends. I hope that in the future the app will let you set a default on the type of soylent you use. Also would be nice if the app showed how many dietary calories one has taken in on that day. Overall great start to an app that I hope continues to be updated.

Hi Impulse2k1, Thanks for the feedback! I've added the ability for you to set a default type of soylent that you use, as well as setting a default quantity that you regularly consume. Hope that helps! Best, Krister
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
