Hi everyone, there is a new update of the KetoDiet and KetoDiet Basic Apps pending approval on the AppStore! As usual, I'd like to give you some details about what's new.
Note: The new versions are awaiting approval and are not on the AppStore yet. They should be available on the AppStore in 7-10 days. If you like KetoDiet and want to help us do even more, please, don't forget to leave a review on the AppStore, it really makes a difference!
So here is what's new...
New recipes have been added to the optional packages, bringing the total number to 252. To see all new recipes, simply type "new" in the search box when you update to the new version - you'll find: Bacon & Jalapeno Mug Muffin, Chard & Pumpkin Hash, Czech Meatballs, Eggnog Smoothie, Pesto Mug Muffin, Tartar Sauce and Tiramisu Mug Cake. As always, you'll be getting even more free recipes via our integrated blog.
New restaurants have been added to our database. You'll find 3 new restaurants that have been added based on your requests (Olive Garden, Wagamama and Black Bear Dinner) so you can easily check for keto-friendly meals when eating out. More restaurants will be added in every update. We collect our own restaurant data - we don't rely on third party sources that are often inaccurate.
More foods have been added to the KetoDiet database so you can easily create more custom meals.
Our Progress and What's Next...
The previous major update made KetoDiet Basic universal. This means that you can now use it on both the the iPhone and iPad.
How about the KetoDiet App with planning and monitoring features - when is it going to be on the iPhone? Our initial estimate for the universal KetoDiet iOS App was end of this year. However, as we've been moving forward, we realised that there is a lot more work than we originally expected. Creating an app and maintaining it is far more involved than creating, say PDFs and e-books. Thankfully, it's also far more useful to our users which makes it rewarding to us. Stay tuned, we will keep you informed about our progress in every update. Everyone who asked to be included in the beta-testing will be contacted as soon as we get there.
So here is what we've achieved so far...
- We made KetoDiet Basic universal and created a brand new user interface to improve the user experience. You can see more details in this post.
Here is what we're going to do next...
- make KetoDiet a universal App with support for all iOS devices (iPads and iPhones)
- bring KetoDiet Basic and KetoDiet to Android
- provide access to all advanced features for KetoDiet Basic users through in-apps. Not everyone wants to use the advanced features in KetoDiet (planning and progress monitoring) but we want to make it easy for those who change their mind to upgrade.
- When the KetoDiet universal App is live, we will start adding even more features driven by your feedback. You can learn about some of the popular requests at the end of this post: KetoDiet App FAQ. Have any suggestions or feedback? Please, leave a comment!
How About KetoDiet Android App?
There is some great news for those with Android devices! The beta-testing for first the KetoDiet Basic App will start at the end of this month - I'll send an email to all who signed up when it's done. If everything goes as planned, the KetoDiet Basic App will be on Google Play in December. After that, in early 2016, we will run beta-testing for the KetoDiet App (with planning and progress monitoring). This post explains the difference between KetoDiet and KetoDiet Basic Apps.
What you see on the photo is the current state of the Meals tab - almost there!
We will soon run a beta-testing program for the KetoDiet App to collect user feedback. If you'd like to join hundreds of others, let us know by sending an email via this online form. I won't be able to add you to our list if you only leave a comment below this post.
Beta-testing for the universal KetoDiet iOS App and KetoDiet Android App will be available in early 2016. KetoDiet Basic for Android will be out this December and beta-testing will be available by the end of November. This post explains the difference between KetoDiet and KetoDiet Basic Apps.
The KetoDiet Cookbook
My first cookbook will soon be printed! I've been working on this cookbook for over a year it will finally be out in January 15th. The date has been postponed from November due to additional edits.
If you like my recipes, you can support what I do by preordering my book now. I'll soon be sharing some fun facts and sneak peak photos of my new cookbook so stay tuned! :-)
