TheCarrot.com, the leading provider of life-management tracking and reporting, announced today that a significant upgrade to its popular iPhone application (app) is now available. TheCarrot.com offers more than 30 trackers, the broadest range of health and lifestyle trackers available on a single iPhone app, and the 2.0 application provides a more intuitive and enjoyable experience combined with improved functionality. Users can now better track an ever-expanding array of daily activities such as food intake and workouts as well as better manage health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma.
The free upgraded iPhone app provides real-time, on-the-go access to all tracker histories, photos and journal entries, and the ability to search for nutritional information, medications, symptoms and more. Information can be entered in a variety of formats, depending on user preference. Individuals who track their exercise patterns, for example, can choose to record the date, time, duration, location, distance and/or perceived exertion with accompanying photos. People tracking what they eat now have instant access to nutritional information on more than 20,000 foods.
“We’re excited to bring users the newest version of TheCarrot.com’s iPhone app, designed to empower consumers who want to take charge of their health and well-being,” said Douglas Trauner, CEO and founder of Healthcare Analytic Services, creator of TheCarrot.com. “The benefits of ongoing monitoring to encourage healthy behavior have long been recognized, but until now there wasn’t a mobile, one-stop option for all areas of interest. We are proud that TheCarrot.com is helping transform lives.”
TheCarrot.com also offers users the unique ability to correlate tracked items into a personalized report to determine how one behavior impacts others, such as: How does mood impact food intake? Do certain foods trigger headaches? Does the timing of a medication affect sleep or blood pressure? Identifying these trends and triggers can motivate users to proactively change habits and behaviors. The robust reporting feature also enables users to share this information with physicians, nutritionists, trainers, coaches and other professionals.
TheCarrot.com 2.0 app is available for free from Apple’s App Store at http://bit.ly/yyBsH. The app can be used with an iPhone (OS 2.0 or later) and iPod Touch.
