I know this has been asked before, but I didn't see anything recent and these things change all the time.  Does anyone have iPhone/iPad apps for gluten-free that they love?  I just downloaded something called Shop Well and it seems like it might be useful (has a bar code scanner), but I'd love some kind of easy lookup app.  Anyone know how often these things get updated if ingredient lists change?

 

Thanks.

I use shop well. However, if it says something contains gluten, I go right to the ingredient list to see what is in red.  Sometimes it is modified food starch or caramel coloring that causes the app to tell you to avoid a product.  I have scanned Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce (that says gluten free on the bottle) and it tells me to avoid it due to the caramel color.  It is not a perfect app, however it is a useable tool in my toolbox every time I shop.

Thanks - so it tends to err on the more conservative side?  I guess that's better than the other way!
