The Story behind Foody
Thanks for your interest in my app. I am an Indie Developer from Berlin, Germany. The idea of making an app for tracking food and symptoms arose as my girlfriend was suffering from food related issues. After several tests on allergies she was asked to do a food and symptom diary by her doctor. Rather than worrying about a sheet of paper she, wanted to do it on her iPhone. As she couldn't find an app that was simple enough (most would have asked her to create a catalog up front or enter various details), she ended up taking plain notes with the build in Notes app. So I wondered "who hard can it be to build a food and symptom tracking app that makes writing such a diary as easy as possible". Turns out it's actually a bit of a challenge, but that's what makes building apps fun. After several months of having my girlfriend actually be using the app we figured out a lot of details that are important to allow quick entry of meals, drinks and symptoms.
