Keto Mate – Macro Calculator - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I started doing web development about ten years ago, and have worked in both small and large firms doing user experience development.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

I wanted to ensure that it was extremely lightweight, so that it would run well on any phone and users didn't feel the need to uninstall it due to it being bloated. The optimization to make it super lightweight (which I'm quite satisfied with) did take quite some time and a lot of effort.

Adair Daniels is a US-based entrepreneur, futurist, and physics student specializing in space studies. As an entrepreneur, he is currently working with the Keto diet community to help provide better support for Keto dieters with user friendly apps designed for the diet. His next plan is to create an all around diet tracker for the Ketogenic diet. It will have the ability to track macro nutrient and calorie consumption with a cutting edge nutritional database, create custom recipes and define serving sizes, make meal plans with the ability to receive intelligent suggestions from a recipe database which would fit the user's remaining macro nutrients and calories, as well as auto generate a grocery list based upon the meal plan. As a futurist, he is the founder of Futurist Edge – a website serving as a guide for those who wish to stay updated on the cutting edge of life. He has been published in The Future of Business with his chapter of Space-Based Solar Power and Wireless Power Transmission, as well as in his own book, A Method for the Madness. His overall futurism goals are to help the public understand the cutting edge of scientific and technological developments, while leading the charge to establish humanity as an interplanetary species. As a physics student, he is seeking to understand modern space technologies and future avenues of development that may help humanity settle our solar system and beyond.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

I used MyFitnessPal during my own weight loss journey, and it definitely helped me out! Aside from that, I definitely enjoy VNC Viewer to remote control my computer and Duolingo for continuing to learn German.

How long have you been working on this app?

I spent about two months working on this app before I released it.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

I wanted to create something for users to be able to calculate their macro nutrient and calorie needs. I also wanted it to be user friendly and intuitive.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

I believe my app is a lot more straightforward and simple to use than other similar apps on the market. If the user knows their body fat percentage already, it only takes three steps for them to calculate their macro nutrient and calorie needs, and if they don't, it's only one extra step.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

I just released the advanced calculator mode, which was the primary feature that I wanted to add to the app. From here, I believe I'd like to add an informational section for those who are curious about the Ketogenic diet.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

I would definitely be interested in hearing about any features you guys would like to see! Make sure to share the app with any friends doing the Keto diet, or any Keto communities you're a part of!
