Hi folks, I'd like to introduce myself to y'all. I'm the author of CRON-O-Meter, and I've stumbled upon this very nice community here and thought I'd post and see what you all think I can do to improve CRON-O-Meter for LFRV users.
I've recently started developing a web version of CRON-O-Meter, at http://cronometer.com/ which is still in beta/active development. One of the big features the web version will support soon is community food & recipe sharing, which should be a big advantage over the stand-alone version.
I'd love to get your feedback and feature requests.
I find the tool very useful, and am greatly looking forward to a web version. Apart from that, the things I would most love to see are:
-iPhone app (may be moot if the web site is mobile-friendly)
-bigger database (I also use the Livestrong app/site for basic calorie-counting, since it has some items not in CRON-O-Meter)
Android CRON-O-Meter would be the best thing in my mind! And of course iPhone App!
need android app. right now I'm using "myfitnesspal" which has a really bid database, but I love the cronometer web app.
android and iphone app and a larger database would make it perfect
woohoo!!!! Can't wait. It will make tracking while I'm at school a lot easier. Thank you very much
First I would like to thank you for your excellent program. Grateful isn't enough, you rawk!
What I personally would like to see is an easy button and when you press it the RDI changes to the adapted needs for a low fat raw vegan so people don't need to do that for themselves. Also, the Macro Nutritional Target will automatically be adjusted to 80-10-10.
This is probably to much to ask for but if you do this your program will probably be the 'Official nutritional software'.
To expand on Jacob's suggestion I'd suggest a feature to save and select preset/template macro/micro nutrient settings, and be able to save these as an external file format to share with other users.
this would provide the most flexibility not only for lfrvs but also those transitioning or eating other diets entirely. depending on what foods one does or doesn't eat, whether one is male or female, etc. nutrient requirements may vary you see.
this would also make the program much easier for many people to use (including nutritionists/dieticians using the program with clients) by saving users the trouble of having to research and manually enter settings appropriate for themselves.
I've spoken to a number of people eating lfcv/plant-based who are also interested in this program, so this feature could potentially expand the program's user base. an iPhone app in particular may be quite popular and possibly a commercial success.
if this can be arranged we'd be happy to provide settings for presets that would be popular for lfrvs and those interested in transitioning.
