What is your food allergy app recommendation?

This is what I asked a few months ago: "What is your food allergy iPhone app recommendation?"

And here is my answer: There is no 100% reliable app at this time, as far as I know.

This is probably the best approach in terms of avoidance: PDFs from FAAN for each of the top 8 food allergens:

A FAAN staff member listed some allergy-related apps here:

This looks like a long list of what is available rather than a review of specific apps.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite and reliable food allergy app? Please share them in the comments.

The Nature video channel reviewed the top 10 medical apps in 2010. I wonder how many of those are still popular:

"Foodwiz is an allergy app that is a bit similar to Fooducate. Bar code driven. Enter your allergy and scan food items at the grocery store. Developed by mom and UK allergy association."
