A new app just hit the itunes market today that looks to be a powerful entry in to the allergy and H&W category. Hughsallergyscan app leverages LabelAPI to deliver a powerful barcode scanning allergy detection tool for allergy suferers.
The application allows the user 10 scans to test the application before having to register, which is ample to get a feel for its utility. But where the real power is with this app is once you register and log in, you are then able to create a profile for any number of 14 different allergens such as listed below. And, even more impressively you can create several profiles, one for each member of your family for instance, and you can easily and effectively switch between these profiles whilst scanning products.
Hughsallergyscan is a valiant entry into this space. It is intuitive and easy to navigate and Hugh has very wisely avoided overcrowding the app with redundant functionality. We look forward to watching this applications evolution.
