[prMac.com] Powell, Ohio - Light Year Software LLC is delighted to introduce "In Season", their new produce shopping guide for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Leveraging the iPhone's unique interface, In Season features a database of common fruits and vegetables with information about when they are in season.
Most Americans have forgotten what good produce tastes like. Our modern supermarkets sell fresh produce that is bred for heavy yields, shipment and shelf life, but not necessarily taste. And, there is the expectation that everything is available all year long.
In Season aims to help change that by showing when fresh fruit and vegetables are at their peak. The guide includes great background information about the food, how to pick the most exceptional selections at the market, as well as how to best store them at home.
Feature highlights include:
* Features database of the most common fruits and vegetables that are in season
* At-a-glance, displays when fresh fruit and vegetables are at their peak
* Includes great background information about the selected food
Seasonal produce always tastes better and costs less because supply is higher. Farmers and distributors alike spend less money and effort getting the food to market. And locally-grown produce is even better, since it travels a shorter distance and farmers can offer heirloom varieties that typically cannot survive a long trip to market.
By buying fruits and vegetables when they are in season, consumers eat better tasting food, reduce their carbon footprint, and best of all, save money at the same time.
* US English
* iPhone or iPod Touch 2.2
Pricing and Availability:
In Season 1.0 for iPhone is only $1.99 (USD) and available exclusively through Apple's App Store.
