FoodNoms is a food tracking app that focuses on design, privacy, and providing powerful features. It's not an oversimplified calorie counter or a general fitness tracker. It's a delightful food tracker built for people who are serious, or want to get serious, about food tracking.
FoodNoms is exclusive to Apple platforms, taking advantage of many Apple frameworks and services: Health app integration, iCloud, Shortcuts, and Home Screen widgets in iOS 14.
One of the most-loved features of the app is its "augmented reality" nutrition label scanner, which is made possible with Apple's computer vision framework. Serious food trackers love the nutrition label scanner because they can log accurate, complete nutrition data within seconds.
FoodNoms is free to use. Several features are exclusive to FoodNoms Plus, which is a subscription that unlocks water, caffeine, and alcohol tracking, intermittent fasting, portion size estimations, and more analysis.

Algebraic Labs, LLC
FoodNoms is built by Algebraic Labs, LLC, a company that I, Ryan Ashcraft, founded.
I started my software development career on the App Store over 10 years ago when I was in high school. I then went on to get a degree in computer science at Georgia Tech, where I had the opportunity to intern at Apple in 2013. After graduating, I moved to California to begin a fulltime career as a software engineer. In July 2019, I quit my job to pursue my dream of starting my own company and building products for Apple platforms.
Over the past few years, I've been more focused on my health and fitness. I've made a lot of progress thanks to the Apple Watch and a few great apps. I've come to realize how critical nutrition is to meeting fitness goals; that's why I started tracking what I eat. However, I never found a food tracking app that I really enjoyed using, with issues ranging from slow, confusing user interfaces to concerning privacy practices.
My mission with FoodNoms is to help more people reach their fitness goals by making food tracking easier and more rewarding.
