I designed and developed an iPhone application that allows users to examine the nutritional information of fast food chains. The application retrieves its data from an SQLite database. The Objective C program loads the information as requested and displays it in a clean and intuitive user interface. The program utilizes a drill-down table structure, separating the information by restaurant chain, category, and finally, food items. The resulting program runs quickly and efficiently, drawing data from the SQLite database only as required. Developing and debugging this application made me aware of 1) the complexities of working within iOS framework which dictates the IDE, requisite classes, and design patterns; and 2) the usability and computational issues in mobile computing.
