iOS iCarbs App – Now with Powerful Search Capability

James Hollender updates his iCarbs app, which aids users trying to keep track of their carbohydrate intake. This is one of apps updated to version 7.0 in the suite of iNutrient apps: iCarbs, iCholesterol, iFiber, iKals, iPotassium, iProteins, iSatFat, iSodium, iSugars and Vitamin K.

 

 

This version made the app capable of using the entire screen even of newer iPhones with the “notch”. It brings back the Search feature, but one that’s much more powerful. These apps include data from the USDA National Nutrient Database covering the following nutrients: Calories, Carbohydrates, Cholesterol, Fiber, Potassium, Proteins, Saturated Fat, Sodium, Sugars and Vitamin K. All ten apps are universal apps that can be used on iOS devices. The apps include information on how they can be upgraded to app bundles for additional significant savings, i.e., the cost of any apps previously purchased included in bundle is deducted from the cost of the app bundle.

 

The big feature in this version of iCarbs is a search capability that allows for both simple and complex searches. There are two fields that can accommodate either words or phrases. Using only the first provides a simple search that looks for the supplied value in the title, description and USDA ID fields. If a second word or phrase is supplied, then the user has the choice of three operands for how the fields are evaluated: “AND”, “OR” and “But Not”. As the user enter or changes their values, an instantaneous display is given of how many records will be found. Pressing the “Results” button then displays the full list of matches found.

 

In the “Access My Records” section, each food serving for the day is listed in it’s own section and the total daily amount of the nutrient is included in the day’s heading. This makes comparing nutrient intake for each day an easy task.

 

The iCarbs app provides information about foods and how they are rated for carbohydrate content. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat.  The app employs a simple color scale to help readily identify the approximate quantity of the nutrient contained in each food serving rated from EXTREMELY LOW in Carbohydrates all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

If you are interested in multiple nutrients should be aware of the “iNutrients App”, which includes all ten of the above listed nutrients. Instead of the USDA partial selection of foods used in the individual iNutrient apps, the iNutrients app includes all foods and food servings in the entire USDA National Nutrient Database for those nutrients. It also includes the capability for altering the color scale for each nutrient if desired. And Custom Foods can be created for those not included in the USDA database. Even an entire meal’s nutrient information could be included in a single Custom Food definition to make entry even simpler. The iNutrients app is available for less than the cost of three individual iNutrient apps.

SongOwl Gives Users Many Ways to See Music Collection

Independent developer, Mike Clay announces the release of SongOwl 1.0, his new Apple Music library manager/player for iOS. SongOwl approaches navigation in a non-linear way that allows users to configure grouping and sorting options for each view in over 100 different ways. When user saves these preferences, they are stored in sequence as a reusable navigation pattern called a “Path”. You can even “seed” paths with specific collections, turning basically anything into it’s own mini-library. For instance, you could create a path specifically for The Beatles which shows albums followed by composers, allowing you to split Lennon from McCartney.

 

 

“One of Apple Music’s best features is the ability to build this awesome library,” explains SongOwl developer Mike Clay, “but it doesn’t feel very good to actually use it. There’s so many other things they have to accomplish in that app that there just isn’t much space left.” Despite having launched a successful music player before, Clay says it’s a challenge he hadn’t previously tackled directly. “When I started Cs [Music Player] all the third party options adopted pretty much the same basic structure as the stock player. You had to have an Artists tab and a Playlists tab, etc. When Apple Music came out, that pushed a lot of users my way – seeking out that classic interface. But it’s a lot of baggage; I never really took a step back and asked if there was a better way to approach this.”

 

Users can “snapshot” any library view as a favorite, to be quickly accessed from a dedicated tab. “I tend to obsess a little bit when I find a new band or song, and I listen again and again,” says Clay. “so I live in the Favorites tab, because it keeps that stuff a single tap away.” Users can easily filter out songs that aren’t on their device or safe for work, set a custom theme color, and even preview tracks without interrupting their existing playback queues.

 

SongOwl 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Music category.
