- Track daily and weekly point balances.

- Calculate food points using the Points, PointsPlus, or ProPoints (UK) system.

- Calculate activity points using exercise intensity, duration in minutes, and weight.

- Long-press, then drag calculated point values over daily or weekly balances to apply them.

- Optionally display your remaining daily balance in the notification area all day. Select the notification to quickly open the app.

- Automatically reset your daily and weekly balance.

- Search a database of over 8,000 food items to view their point values. This database is provided by the USDA; read more about it here: http://www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=8964

- Drag the point values of search results to apply them to your daily or weekly points.

Good app, just a little buggy Does a good job of calculating points for food items and helping you track the points you've already spent that day. All my issues really come down to the gesture engine that it has you use to say how many points you've spent. It's utterly incapable of recognize any 2 digit number and can't recognize the number 4 or 8. It interprets 4 as 9 no matter how you try to write it, and interprets 8 as either 0 or unrecognizable. You can work around it easily enough by just inputting 2 twice (for 4) or 3 and 5 (for 8), but it takes the shine off an otherwise really nice app.

Won't Calculate Food Points So the point of these apps is to calculate how many points a food item is worth that way you can subtract it from your daily allowance. When I go to the calculator I add the food's fat, fiber, etc & nothing. There isn't even a period (.) if something is half (ex. 0.5g of fat). The notification on my phone on top is brilliant. Also, when I went to calculate how many points I was allowed it didn't have a gender option. It did have for nursing moms a plus for me! Had the calculator worked, I'd give it 5 stars.
