Popular Foods Have Arrived in the ShopWell App!

Uncategorized By February 27, 2013 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

In the last ShopWell iPhone App update we launched a feature
that allows people to rate the foods they find in ShopWell. This helps the community know which foods people like the most. Today, we released an update to the app which uses your
ratings along with other measures of popularity to provide you a weekly
notification of popular foods.

True to ShopWell’s mission, the popular foods notification is personalized. You will get the popular foods of people with the same
nutrition goals and preferences as you. For example, if you are looking for gluten free
foods, we’ll only show you the popular foods of others who have also selected to avoid gluten. read more
