    Whether you are a body builder, vegetarian, nutritionist, or just someone who wants to eat healthier, Foobi is fully customizable for you to track and balance your meals so that you can have a healthy balanced diet.

    In a nutshell, Foobi is based on the simplicity of Food Groups and it works by simply tracking servings. It was designed from the ground up to combine aesthetic polish with elegant usability. With Foobi's design, If you can flick, you are already an expert.

    If you are looking for a companion to help you stay focused on your diet, or if you need help planning your meals, but always disliked having to spend so too much time entering information, you'll be happy to find out why Foobi was made.

    We recommend you to take a moment of your time to visit our website, at tapplox.com where you'll obtain videos, screenshots, and more information for Foobi.

    ► FEATURES
    - A Fast, Simple, and Fun user interface
    - Even the settings screen looks better than most apps on the App Store
    - Advanced database lets you fully customize any food group completely, anytiime.
    - Track your meals by servings per food group.
    - Food groups are customizable by their Icon, Color, Name and Serving Limit count.

    - 17 built in food groups. More will come by request via updates.
    - Highly optimized, innovative UI controls with non-intrusive sound effects.

    * Food groups can be easily disabled, deleted, or customized to your needs easily. Watch the video via our website to get a glimpse at how easily you can do this.

    ► WHAT FOOBI IS NOT
    While Foobi helps you track your diet, it was not designed to do calorie / protein / carbs etc tracking. No food database lookup. No annoying barcode scanning. But you will know what you ate because food groups are easy, and most of the time work just as well (if not much better).

    The most important thing about tracking your diet is to actually track it! Foobi makes diet tracking fun, easy, and fast.

    It reminds me of [app]WeightBot[/app] by Tapbots.

    And this app suffer of one major problem. QUANTITY !

    I eat a big boll of cereal in the morning and a very small portion of meat for dinner... So does that mean it's 50% Grain and 50% meat for the day ???

    Hi Pika,

    Foobi works by tracking Serving Counts. So if you had only 1 serving of cereal (grain) and 1 serving of chicken (poultry), your total servings for the day would consist of half grain and half poultry. If you had more than one serving of cereal, it would be 2 servings instead of 1.

    In the end though, Foobi is still a tool. It is up to you to find out what's the best diet for yourself!

    Thanks for the awesome feedback so far!

    Foobi 1.0.1

    While we are getting a lot of great positive feedback from our website, we need some of that in the App Store.

    We are also aware that Foobi in the AppStore is only compatible with OS 3.12. A patch today has been submitted to correct this, in addition to some rare bug fixes, and an improved icon (on device).

    Please don't hesitate to ask questions.


    It will help us more if you ask your questions in this thread, as opposed to sending us a message via our website.

    It's incredible apps like this that make me wish I could make apps also. Beautifully designed, very slick interface, does the job in a simple way.

    Great work and I just might give this one a shot! I need to do a better job tracking my food.

    Foobi 1.0.1, and $0.99 SALE!

    For a long time we had thought that Apple might have rejected our app since it had been in the "In Review" status for so long. If you have used Foobi before, you'll notice that there's a lot of custom UI controls, some of which are only possible via private API calls. Foobi was approved in minutes after sending an email to Apple (asking about the status, private APIs, etc).

    Foobi 1.01
    As promised the 3.12 barrier is now gone. Now compatible with 3.0 iPhone or iPod touch. Also included is an updated icon.

    New icons, colors and UI changes are due on the next version, which should be submitted shortly.


    We are having a $0.99 SALE!
    Price should be reflected soon!

    ya know I saw this when you did the original post and thought it was such a great looking UI, the only reason i didn't get it was I was already vested in another site/app for the last 4 years... I was kind of bummed because you app looked sweet....

    but heck for free I have to pull the trigger, can't wait to use it and review it in the app store..... (not free as of yet, but it's probably iTues Store lag)


    EDIT: ok it's free now....thanks
