WeightBot would be our number 1 rated weight loss iPhone application if it was free. However, because of the fee it slips to number 2 in our ratings. Despite this drop, WeightBot is not an expensive application, as it only costs $1.99. To use, simply enter your weight on the homepage of the application and WeightBot automatically calculates your BMI. It is important to note that this application is only for tracking weight loss and does not take into account calorie count or food eaten on a daily basis. However, for a simple and intuitive way to keep track of your weight loss, WeightBot is the perfect application.

At a cost of $4.99, FoodScanner is our most expensive weight loss application. Despite having a multitude of unique features, FoodScanner falls short of Lose It! because it does not have as many features or as large a food database. However, FoodScanner does have a unique feature: a UPC barcode scanner. Instead of logging each food by hand with a keyboard, simply scan the barcode of the product and it is automatically added to your daily log. Additionally, the application displays the total number of calories consumed each day.
