How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

2.0 out of 5 stars Missing some key features... April 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
I hate to say it, but I really expected more from a (normally) paid app. The list of restaurants is disappointingly short and there doesn't seem to be a way to add up menu items for a grand total. The app is called calorie counter, but it doesn't count anything. It simply allows you to pick a restaurant, look at a list of menu items, and touch each item to see its nutritional values. No pictures, no way to add up the various items to total up the meal, no way to keep track of your history to try to reduce calorie intake and raise protein intake... nothing particularly useful.

This was most disappointing when looking at the list of ingredients at chipotle. It lists out the tortillas, chips, salsa, meat, cheese, beans... etc. But no way to build the burrito or plate to know what you're about to eat. I am not a developer, but there is no way this feature would be difficult to add.

Lastly, I should be able to enter my calorie intake goals and be able to see where most of my calories come from. Without this feature, it is just an app full of raw data. I am almost certain that I can find all of this information on a single website if I googled it. I really got my hopes up on this app and I can't believe anyone would pay $3 for this raw and freely available information.

This app has potential to be extremely useful. Most of my meals come from local restaurants. Add these features and I might just pull out my phone for something other than words with friends during my meal.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed April 29, 2011
By elf

First you're restricted to the restaurants it has listed (no Red Robin for example). If you do choose from the list you don't get to choose sizes. If you happen to get the only size, it still doesn't count for you, it's just a lookup.

Ultimately that's what this app is, a simple online menu lookup for some restaurants with only one size and no descriptions.

There is a search feature, but really it's just a filter, you can't search across menus for instance.

The first free app of the day where I'm sad that even though it was free to me Amazon is paying the dev 1/5th list price. Sorry Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where are they getting the data for this app....? April 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
I check the nutritional information found in this app and compared it with the information on the fast food companies website and not once did I find information that matched 100% ... and most of the time none of the values matched.

Don't spend money on this app.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's info, but now whom do you believe? April 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
I have a web site I have used. Between my website and this fast food ap, the calories are different along with the other info. This app came in low on calories. No sodium list, of which I have found to be more important. I agree could be good, but now I need to look for real info. But keep working on this and make free until fixed.

1.0 out of 5 stars A healthy dose of fail April 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
If this app were free, I'd probably give it 3, maybe 4 stars if it supported Android 3.0. For $3? It's lucky to get even 1.

They seem to have left out a number of places, like IHOP (they have Denny's, though), Taco Johns, Papa Murphy's and Golden Corral (though they have Old Country Buffet).

It also just displays nutritional info, but it lacks the ability to put together a whole meal and get a total of all those numbers.

There are free apps that do a much better job of calorie counting than this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars This wasn't worth the free download. April 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
The developers think this is worth $2.99? Really? There's no saturated fat listing, items can't be combined to make a meal, and the Chipotle section doles out the info piece by piece. So you have to check the salsa, then the steak, then the cheese... and add it all up in your head. Uninstall.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horribly Misnamed April 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
All this "app" is is a database of selected items from selected restaurants with limited search (filter) capabilities. There is no option to change the size or options for a given item. It doesn't even tell you what item is being used for the data (i.e. "Cafe Latte" listed as a drink without any size, milk type, etc.).

A "Calorie Counter" implies the ability to count calories, but all this does is show you baseline nutritional information for a sampling of items at certain restaurants. This should really be called "Abridged Fast Food Nutritional Database" and should cost $0 so people don't feel guilty about the purchase when they inevitably uninstall it.

I also did some quick spot checks comparing about 10 items to the actual companies' websites and found zero points of agreement.

This app is one of the main reasons I almost never buy an app until I have had a specific recommendation or been able to test it myself.

But hey... no ads...

Good app. Missing some menu items that will hopefully come in an update. Makes you think twice about things that you regularly order.
