iPhone only: Previously mentioned fitness web site Gyminee has changed names to DailyBurn since we last featured them, and as of today they've also released a new iPhone application that helps track calories by scanning bar codes of over 200,000 foods.
Using the app is simple, as you can see in the video above. Fire it up, point the camera at the UPC code of a food item, and it'll automatically recognize the food and record the nutritional information with your DailyBurn account. Simple, right?
The unfortunate thing about this app is that it can't actually recognize non-processed foods—you know, the generally healthy stuff like fruits and vegetables; you can, however, manually add those items. Still, if you need a little help keeping your eye on your daily intake, whether your eat mostly processed foods or not, DailyBurn and FoodScanner is a solid tool for the job.
FoodScanner is currently only available on the iPhone (no cameras on the iPod touch and all) and has a semi-steep price tag of $3.
