    Im looking for a simple app that allows me to look up the calories in certain food items without having to enter them into a daily diary or sign up for a service. I don't mind if the app also has those features, as long as I'm not forced to look things up in a diary style interface.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    I'm a lifetime fitness buff. Fit, extremely active & constantly training for various events, I have relied on MyFitnessPro app for years.

    While I track every thing I eat, all fluids, exercise & such. You don't have too. Being free & having it's own web site, you can use as little as you want.

    Since it's very fast & easy to get calories on it's vast constantly updated database of food. I highly advocate this app.

    I downloaded it to check out, I know lots of people who use it. I'm looking for something more like a food calorie lookup table/dictionary, with calorie info but a simple search interface, not all these daily tracker style features.

    I'm pretty good at doing the math in my head when it comes to calories, but sometimes I want to quickly look something up. I was hoping to find a nice app for this without all the trappings and extras but so far no luck. Who knows, maybe I'll give in to using these apps, Im just a tidy person and hate the idea of filling up a service subscription journal with inaccurate information based on random spot searches that I want to do, especially if that app is set up to track me and I might one day decide I want to use it and not have it be filled with inaccurate data from my spot lookups.

    Why not just bookmark I'm not sure why people pay for apps that only provide info that can be found on the net. Maybe if you absolutely need to know the calorie of a cactus out in the middle of the desert? haha
