[prMac.com] Mello Apps Limited today is pleased to announce the release of Vegetarian Scanner 1.0 for iPhone. Vegetarians all around the world find it difficult shopping for food products with such a large variety of additives in food products these days. Vegetarian Scanner is an innovative one of a kind app that aims to solve this problem by providing a database of food additives that users can search or scan.
The core features of Vegetarian Scanner are Scan, Search, and Browse. With our Scan features, users can take a photo of the ingredients label using the iPhone camera. The user will be prompted to crop the photo to select the area containing the ingredients. Upon cropping, Vegetarian Scanner will start processing for a while and come back with results of food additives found in the product. Users are prompted to check all other ingredients not found in the scan manually.
The Search and Browse features allow the user to search through our database of food additives. This is done entirely on the iPhone and no network connection is required for any of the features in Vegetarian Scanner.
