I use their webapp all the time, but a native app (like palm has) would be great!
    Agreed, a bigger db would be great, I am just having problems with a smaller db, but I will look into it. I know in NYC even if the db does not have the food item in questions because restaurants have to post their nutrition, I can just add the item/meal to my version of the db. That features works well and I plan to have it.

    I'm a Dietetic Intern myself and would love to have an app like this. I'll test for you as well.

    MapMyFitness.com - Map your Running Routes. Find Runs. Join our Community of Running. Runner Social Network. Calculate Calories, Online Pedometer, Distance, iPhone, and More. Is a great set of tools for creating maps of various routes and their distances. The App store has a lot of cool apps that would be great for nutrition and fitness experts and anyone else to use.

    There is an app for the old Palm OS available on the website of the Database. http://www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=5720

    Would be happy to beta test it.

    When I was using an iPod Touch for some time I used it routinely. Not only did it force me to be more aware of what I was eating and how bag it may be for me, but also gave me a helpful incentive to remain below the goal lines I set for myself with food and to have the amount of exercise or calories burned that I was shooting for.

    Its the only program from the Touch that I really truly miss.

    It also teaches who how some not so obviously bad foods are truly just junk. So its kinda like an educational tool.
