Cameras, in general, are used as devices to enhance our enjoyment. They have practical purposes sure, but most of the time we're taking pictures to create art, share memories or earn some money by helping other people share their memories.
The latest iPhone app, called MealSnap, puts a new twist on camera use. By simply taking a picture of the food you're about to eat, you can find out the calorie count and other nutritional content. It's a remarkable new idea from the folks at DailyBurn.
"The database can quickly help identity the food, how many calories there are, proteins, fat, carbs, vitamins, whatever you may want to know," says DailyBurn CEO Andy Smith. "Users can then choose to share what they've eaten on Twitter or FourSquare, leading to social accountability."
You can learn more, see some examples and buy the app directly from the MealSnap website.
