App Review: Nutrition Quiz

Questions on health will point your wellbeing in the right direction


Manufacturer: Runtastic
Review Version: 1.2.1
Price: Free
Platform: iOS, Android

Learning new and complex things tends to stick in the brain more when it’s fun and engaging. Nutrition Quiz hits both targets and delivers a quick-fire way for users to get up to speed on the foods they consume.

It’s straightforward – just check the brief statement and click Myth or Fact and the answer will pop up instantly. The added bonus here is that even if you get it wrong, you’ll be educated on – for example – the benefits that green tea has on your skin. There are added competitive elements too such as a countdown timer – answer fast and get more points – and the facility to compete against other users and Facebook friends. So technically it’s great for improving your nutritional knowledge.

The $1.99 Pro version does away with the adverts and opens even more questions and tips for the users

Sadly, the free version is hellbent on making you pay for the full one. Not only does it lock out eight different categories including exercise, weight and food types, but it displays a screen-filling ad after every answer. And as the content is locked away, we found repetition in the questions on each run through.

As we said, Nutrition Quiz is a great way to find out about crucial facts and myths surrounding health and fitness. The $1.99 Pro version does away with the adverts and opens even more questions and tips for the users, which is ideal for those that don’t have a clue about what they’re putting into their bodies.
