CalorieKing App Ranked #2 Globally in Recent Study

The best apps for weight loss have been ranked by experts from the University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre in a world-first study of their accuracy and scientific basis, and CalorieKing’s Control My Weight app came in #2.

After examining 800 apps for the study, researchers selected 28 that were weight management-specific and allowed for logging food intake. Each app was used for five days and assessed against a range of quality measures: the credibility of their information source; the accuracy and coverage of scientific information; the inclusion of enhanced features; usability; and, most importantly, their likelihood of changing health behaviors.
