[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - Announcing that Ae-volution GbR, the developers of Glyndex, has released their latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application makes it easy for users to determine the glycemic index and glycemic load of more than seven hundred food items, each of which can be found with a simple search. Users are able to save foods to their Favorites list, as well as read about how a food's glycemic value affects their bodies. This 2.1 update also gives users the ability to add foods to the list, and switch languages.
The Glyndex app has been around for a while, helping users to eat healthier by arming them with important information for making smarter food choices. It's perfect for diabetics watching their insulin, people on a diet and those just wanting to eat healthy.
Self-dubbed as "The Nutrition Guru," Glyndex offers users an easy, convenient way to find the glycemic index and glycemic load values of more than seven hundred foods. Users are able to easily locate any food item via the search function then discover details such as kilocalories, kilojoules, protein, carbs, fat and fiber. They are also able to read how these values can affect their body and save any food to their Favorites list.
Glyndex has a unique feature that allows users to see at a glance whether or not a certain food is good for their dietary requirements. It's a traffic light system that displays green, yellow and red zones for each food, along with values, if the user opts to view the glycemic index and load at the same time. The feature boasts adjustable settings, with users able to switch the view between Glyndex, Montignac and Custom.
Just look at some of the features you get in Glyndex:
* Clean, easy interface

This latest 2.1 update allows users to add foods to the list of over seven hundred. These additions will be included, with their glycemic values, in future updates. Another added feature in the update is the choice of language. Users are now able to select or switch between English and German within the app. Selecting a different language is done independently of an iDevice and so does not require any device adjustments.
