What makes Edibles unique and better than other diet journals?
Edibles is optimized around fast entry of log entries. Most diets track one particular thing as part of one’s diet. Be it calories, carbs, sodium or whatever. Because Edibles tracks *only* that one thing, it’s UI isn’t cluttered with extra bits of nutritional information that aren’t useful to you.
Edibles does not require an internet connection for day to day use. However, when you combine Edibles with the free Edibles Online service, you gain peace of mind, knowing that your Edibles data is safe and secure. This is because Edibles has the ability to backup and restore all of it’s data over the wireless network to Edibles Online.
Additionally, you gain the ability to share your foods, diet plan, daily log entries, and weight log entries with your friends, family, doctor, or whoever you choose.
Edibles Online even gives you the ability to enter your Edibles foods using your PC through the web! That means you don’t need to spend all your time hunting and pecking on the iPhone keyboard. You can just go to Edibles Online and type it in! After downloading, it’s available in Edibles for you to use when you log your meals.
