One of the best things about using an iPad is the great apps that we can run on it. There are excellent apps for just about any purpose you can think of. Better still, there are lots of great free apps for the iPad. Our Best Free iPad App of the Week posts celebrate these apps.
This week's pick is Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker by MyFitnessPal HD - which I'm going to shorten to Calorie Counter & Diet Tracker for most of the remainder of this post. The opening lines on its App Store page create some very high expectations:
Lose weight with MyFitnessPal, the fastest and easiest to use calorie counter (now optimized for iPad!). With the largest food database of any calorie counter (over 1.2 million foods), and amazingly fast food and exercise entry, we'll help you take those extra pounds off! There is no better diet app - period.
Happily, this app absolutely lives up to that description. I've used a few similar apps on the iPhone and iPad and this is easily the best I've seen.
