Apples2Oranges Now Available!

Apples2Oranges, our latest iPhone application, is now available in the AppStore! Compare prices and nutritional information with a few simple taps! Whether you’re looking to save a few bucks or trying to drop a few pounds, Apples2Oranges offers an easy and fun way to do it!

We’re extremely excited about this one because it really is a first-of-its-kind release. There are other unit comparison apps out there, but nothing that really focuses in on one of the most common reason people buy those things. You can read all the official stuff in the product description and on our website, but I’ll give you my personal slant on this one.

First off, I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve sat there banging my head against the grocery store shelf trying to figure out whether the 12 pack of Big-K Cola is a better deal than the 24-pack of Coke. With Apples2Oranges you can figure it out in just a couple of quick taps!

One of my other favorite uses is measuring cholesterol content. At my last checkup my doc pretty much told me that my cholesterol is so high that the fact that I don’t exercise is the probably the only thing keeping me alive (OK, it wasn’t THAT bad but it wasn’t good.) Anyhow, now I’m constantly doing the “This one? Or this one?” thing at the store, reading the nutritional info on the sides of the box. But does ANYONE use the same serving sizes? Heck, no. Again, Apples2Oranges does the trick by letting me get an equal comparison even when the serving sizes are totally different. Thank you Apples2Oranges!

OK, enough infommercial. I really think everyone is going to like this one. It’s insanely useful and the team here did an excellent job on it. Not only that, but our art guys did a bang up job making it really darn pretty (I love the little gears. :) )

Apples2Oranges is available today in the iTunes AppStore for just $4.99. Just click here for a direct link to the official listing. You can also read about it on our web page here. Finally, I’ve included a few screenshots below so you can get a look at it ahead of time!

Enjoy!

    @Henry: Fortunately, metric is metric no matter where you go so most of Europe should be covered, but when it comes to the non-metric liquid measurements we used U.S. measures. I updated our site and the product description to reflect this. If the App does well enough I could see us adding some sort of option for switching between (or adding on) Imperial liquid/dry measures.

    Thanks for reminding us to point this out!

    Looks pretty cool. I was just doing this 2 days ago will grocery shopping. But I just used my calculator….it was cumbersome….I may have to give this a shot.

    Hey, you guys made headlines on Yahoo News with your new Apple to Oranges App. Scroll down to the Technology section. This section does get updated often so it will eventually roll off but hopefully you get to see it first!

    Yes, since carbs are on the nutritional labels, Apples2Orange will let you compare the carbs in different products, even when the serving sizes are in different units. It’s really helpful for things like carbs, calories, sodium – whatever you’re trying to monitor.

    Great app! I do not know how many times I have surfed the net on the spot to try and make sure my hubbie with high chlosterol gets the best choice for him.

    Eat a bowl of oats with blueberries in the morning and your cholesterol plummets! No doc will tell you this…… And the good thing is that it tastes nice as well.

    This application is actually “the application” a friend of mine have it and I can tell you that it really helps you in what you need to know about carbs and nutritional labels. Really recommend using it, I don’t have not even an i phone but I want it….
