Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 3/29/2012: Fast Food Nutrition has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Fast Food Nutrition.

Fast Food Nutrition is priced at $2.99 in Google Play, and is normally priced at $2.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Fast Food Nutrition is described as follows:
Nutritional Data at Your Fingertips

Do you like to dine out at fast food restaurants, but are concerned about what you are eating? Fast Food Nutrition is a handy app for your Android device that provides you with a variety of nutritional information. This simple tool helps you to keep track of all your nutrition and diet information for more than 300 of your favorite restaurants chains and 50,000 menu items.

The app's nutritional data includes: calories, Weight Watchers points, fats, trans fats, saturated fats, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, sugars, and protein. Fast Food Nutrition is more than a calorie counter; it actually helps you calculate your calories as well. It also displays the total percent of RDA for all meals consumed.

Simply input a restaurant name into the search function, or click on its easy-to-recognize logo, to access its menu items. Then, click on the menu items to create an order and see how many combined calories and other attributes your selection contains. Also, you can save your selected restaurants to your Favorites for easy future access.
Fast Food Nutrition has a rating of 4.1 stars in Google Play and 4.1 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

It's amazing to see such agreement between the two markets. It's also nice to see a "different" app, neither productivity nor a video game.
