[prMac.com] Auckland, New Zealand - Mello Apps Limited today is pleased to announce the release of Halal Scanner 1.0 for iPhone. Muslims all around the world find it difficult shopping for food products with such a large variety of additives in food products these days. Halal 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.
"I remember how frustrating it was going to the supermarket and trying to figure out if the numbers on the ingredients were halal. It was out of this frustration that Halal Scanner was born." said Faizal Mohammed, creator of Halal Scanner.
The core features of Halal 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, Halal 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 Halal Scanner.
