There are quite a few free apps on the AppStore.

I use NC Lite (NutriCheck A-Z Food Counselor) & Max 5%

I'm going to look at those SKB recommends.

I've not otherwise found anything reliable as they seem quirky depending on how and what you eat. Even the database built into my Omnipod doesn't seem to really reflect a good type 1 diet.

Of course, it's great fun having smart phones and tablets! There are some very cool iPhone apps for grocery shopping that would be really useful for keeping track. They use your camera to scan bar codes and follow your list. I think some even keep coupons for you and follow your budget. Once you've got your carb counts figured it would be easy and fun.

(I don't grocery shop. I found one of these for my wife who likes doing that chore.)

Hope you'll keep us posted!
