Our company just released a Fast Food Calorie Counter for BlackBerry. This new application features 3,000 menu items from the 29 most popular fast food chains. Whether you are counting calories, carbs, fiber or fat grams, this helpful guide will empower you to make better choices or allow you to "cheat" occasionally without feeling guilty.

The trial version seems to contain a ton of useful nutritional information. I'd like to see a larger (or adjustable) font, and my other issue would be how current the data is. Menus seem to change constantly, and I would suspect that nutritional information could become out of date rather quickly.

Seems like a nice effort for a relatively reasonable price.

Adjustable fonts is a good idea. The fonts are a bit small right now in order to fit a lot of information on the screen. There is a More info/Chart option that will display nutrition data and chart using the entire screen. We will constantly update the data and provide free upgrades to customers.

Thank you for taking the time to try this app.

This is exactly the point of this application. There is nothing healthy about eating at McDonald's or Burger King. But if you are stuck at the airport and have to eat there, this is nice to be informed and choose a meal that contains 250 calories instead of 1,000 Calories and 130 grams of fat

Looks like a nice app. Any plans to add more places like Quiznos, Del Taco, Rubios, Daphnes, El Pollo Loco and others? Thanks!

Neat but trial doesn't give you more than 3 places.

Yes, we are in the process of adding more and more entries. Quiznos, Del Taco, Rubios, Daphnes, El Pollo Loco are great ideas. We are also putting in place a "Restaurant" database, different from the Fast Food one. We are thinking about places like Chili's, Denny's, Olive Garden, Ruby Tuesday, Hooters, P.F Chang's, Cheesecake Factory, etc...

Depending on the size of the overall database we believe this will still be 1 unique software.
