The Eatery 4The Eatery - Free

Massive Health's hotly anticipated first app, The Eatery, launched this week. The free iOS app promises a five second speed using their “Fit or Fat” food rating system, which sees community members providing feedback on the photos of food other app users submit. No calories or nutritional information is provided within the app -- all the healthiness rating comes from crowd-sourced opinions, which the app's developers believe is a more effective way of tracking ones eating. The app automatically tag photos of food with locations of restaurants, bars, or coffee shops for those users who location-enable it, but MobiHealthNews found that on a few occasions the app chose wrong. In a comment on one of our food photos, Massive Health CEO Sutha Kamal wrote that the app was typically right when it guessed location.
