Measuring Calories on the iPhone

photocalorie1Nutrition graduate student Larry Istrail recently launched an innovative new iPhone Application called PhotoCalorie allowing users to snap photos of their snacks and meals, enter a short description, and track their calorie intakes.  The App, which is currently offered to Apple customers free of charge, also allows users to keep a visual food journal which he hopes will help them communicate with their doctors about what they are really eating and, hopefully, improve eating habits.

I’m not sure I understand. Does it automatically figure out how many caloires you ate by the picture you uploaded? Do you have to go back in and input that information?
