What can I do with the app?

Take the guesswork out of mealtime decisions. Free your mind from remembering nutritional values and their effect on your glucose levels.

Please note, that for some of these functionalities it is needed to have your CGM data imported into SNAQ (e.g. through Apple Health).

How to best record an image?

We recommend holding your smartphone parallel to the table with a distance of about 30 centimeters. So that the full plate as well as some areas of the table are on the image.

How is the portion size determined?

You can take pictures using two ways: With 3D analysis and without 3D analysis. When using the 3D analysis, the weight gets calculated using the 3D camera, which is available in newer iPhones. When the 3D Analysis is not active, the portions are based on standard portion sizes and might need to be adjusted to fit your specific meal.

What is the 3D analysis?

When using the 3D analysis, we use the 3D camera available on specific phones to create a three-dimensional model of the food. We use this information to calculate the weight of the food. If the 3D analysis is inactive, we use standard portion sizes. The 3D analysis only impacts the portion size estimation but has no impact on the recognition of the type of food.

Which smartphones support the 3D analysis?

The following models support the 3D analysis when using the selfie-camera: iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus. The iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have the 3D cameras on the back of the phone and therefore the 3D analysis is always active. 3D analysis will also be available on Android devices in the future.
