Meal Snap

Cost: $2.99

Meal Snap just might be our favorite new iPhone app -- snap a photo of your meal and the app will tell you how many calories are in it.

We were shocked to find out how accurate the app is. We photographed a variety of foods, from salads to fortune cookies to the British candies, Maltesers -- Meal Snap identified everything correctly an gave us an approximate calorie range for one serving of the meal.

Once the app has identified a food and calorie count, users can rate its accuracy. They can also share their findings on Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare, view estimated calories for the whole day and categorize meals into breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Our only gripe? We wish MealSnap told us exactly how many serving sizes were included in the food we photographed.
