Kindle Fire Free App of the Day (August 9, 2014): Diet Assistant Pro and Bonus App, Diet Assistant Pro

Today's Free App of the Day is Diet Assistant Pro
Originally $1.94


This is not what I thought it wold be--it's not a food tracker; it actually is a diet plan app; you choose from one of a number of plans and it creates a daily menu for you to follow and creates a shopping list. If you don't like one of the options, you can pick one of several alternate choices. There's no way to add an item--apparently the app can't conceive of someone cheating. But that's okay, because it doesn't track calories or carbs or grams of protein. Just your weight, as far as I can tell. It's also, I believe, a British app and the food choices reflect that. Grilled sepia? Prawns? Well, yes, we have prawns in the US, but it's not a common term across most of the country. So, if you want to have a diet laid out for you, with some possibly strange-to-you diet choices, this is an ok app. I like that it will create a shopping list for you. But otherwise pretty limited. I wouldn't be surprised to see a change at some point today.

29 of 87 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker by MyFitnessPal.


This is probably my favorite and most useful diet tracker. It has an extensive data base and will link up with many popular fitness apps. 5992 of 6284 reviews are four stars and above.


These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HDXs. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
