iOS Vitamin K App Update – Assists Users on Blood Thinners Like Coumadin

15 Aug

Revere, Massachusetts – Independent iOS Developer, James Hollender has just updated his Vitamin K app, which aids users on blood thinners like Coumadin. This is just one of ten apps updated to version 5.0 in the suite of iNutrient apps: iCarbs, iCholesterol, iFiber, iKals, iPotassium, iProteins, iSatFat, iSodium, iSugars and Vitamin K. They’re now compliant with versions 8 and 9 of iOS and ready for further updates in iOS 10. This also corrects for a problem where the tabs were only tappable at the top. These apps include data from the USDA National Nutrient Database covering the following nutrients: Calories, Carbohydrates, Cholesterol, Fiber, Potassium, Proteins, Saturated Fat, Sodium, Sugars and Vitamin K. All ten apps are universal apps that can be used on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices. The apps also now include information on how they can be upgraded to app bundles for additional significant savings, i.e., the cost of any apps previously purchased included in bundle is deducted from the cost of the app bundle.

In the “Access My Records” section, each food serving for the day is listed in it’s own section and the total daily amount of the nutrient is included in the day’s heading. This makes comparing nutrient intake for each day an easy task.

All of these apps include a simple color scale to help readily identify the approximate quantity of the nutrient contained in each food serving:

1. Vitamin K – iNutrient: Vitamins K1, K1D & K2:

Users interested in multiple nutrients should be aware of the “iNutrients App”, which includes all ten of the above listed nutrients. Instead of the USDA partial selection of foods used in the individual iNutrient apps, the iNutrients app includes all foods and food servings in the entire USDA National Nutrient Database for those nutrients. It also includes the capability of altering the color scale for each nutrient if desired. And Custom Foods can be created for those not included in the USDA database. Even an entire meal’s nutrient information could be included in a single Custom Food definition to make entry even simpler. The iNutrients app is available for less than the cost of two individual iNutrient apps.
