Released on the App Store – update 2.3.2

The latest iOS version of the EatBy App has been released for all Apple devices. It’s more stable and has two more features, a screen shot function and information from within the food page.

As stated in our previous blog post:

“There’s a new share button on the “My Kitchen” screen (“My Pantry” for some users) which takes a screenshot of the visible items to be shared with family or even on social media. Ideal to remind family that something needs to be eaten up!
The second great innovation is the addition of information available from the individual items’ screen. An info button will appear by the item description if additional storage, product or manufacture’s information is available. We’ll be adding this information to our servers over the coming months.”

We’re happy that the good folk at Apple have reviewed and released version 2.3.2

Your EatBy App should automatically update but for those of you who needed to remove the app from your device – it is now ready to be reinstalled. Once again, we’d like to thank everyone … Continue reading

Freezing Food, Reducing Waste

freezer_foodWhen I moved out of my college apartment in December, I made several shocking discoveries. The first was how many bobby pins there were in my bedroom floor. Seriously, had I kept that place cleaner, I would have known I had hundreds of bobby pins. Second, how quickly so much stuff could be packed and moved. I had spent days working on that room before and never got it clean and my family had the whole thing packed and in the car in an hour. I guess it is safe to say I’m an incompetent house-cleaner. The most shocking discovery by far, however, was how much food I had let go bad in my freezer.

I had spent the last three years sharing an apartment with three other girls and while the apartment had a full-sized refrigerator, by midwest American standards, it was pretty darn small. So how … Continue reading

The Plight of a Naïve Grocery Shopper

I’ll admit I’ve had a problem, a problem that I imagine cost me quite a lot of money in the past. In college, I developed a habit of wasting tons of food that went bad in the refrigerator. It’s not like I was swimming in cash, either. Whether it was my busy schedule or my general forgetfulness, I seemed to just let food expire at the back of my fridge.

Over-shopping leads to wasteNow, it’s not that I was going grocery shopping every other day or loading up on food that I knew I wouldn’t eat. However, as you know, you usually can’t just buy single portions of food at your local supermarket. So, I ended up buying different items in bulk and used portions of them for my meals. This wouldn’t have been an issue if I’d remembered to eat the remaining food as … Continue reading

Original Post:

Well, it’s been a long hard slog to get to this stage but we’ve finally done it… The EatBy App is almost ready to be launched on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

The app is designed to overcome one simple yet expensive problem that most of us face frequently in the kitchen. The problem of throwing out food because it has been forgotten in the fridge or at the back of a cupboard.

Barbara, … Continue reading
