Have you ever gotten to the end of the day and forgotten everything you had eaten throughout that day? It is easy to lose track of all the meals, snacks and drinks we consume each day, especially in the midst of college work and the stress that comes with it. Luckily for iPhone users, there is a new application that helps you document your daily food and drink consumption.

Kevin Healy, a senior at USD, recently launched his iPhone application “MealCam”. The app is essentially a platform to take and store photos of your daily meals. Once inside the application, you are instructed to “document your first meal” by taking a photo of it. That photo is then uploaded and added to a daily collage.

Once your photos are uploaded each day, you are provided with access to review your consumption. Within the app, there is a calendar feature that displays the daily photos of the meals you eat, allowing easy browsing between the days.

For those who are interested in simply recording their daily meal intake in the form of photos that appear in a calendar, this is the perfect app for you. You can review what you eat in order to assure you never lose track of little snacks you had throughout the day.
