I can’t believe it is finally here.  I have been working on this app for over 6 months now.  Part of the reason it has taken so long is

1) I am pretty much learning how to program in Android from scratch.

2) I changed the complete plan of my app half way through.

3) I am a pretty busy working my full time job, working on a masters degree, volunteering at church, and helping my wife raise my 2 kids (a 4 year old and a 1 year old).

But after all of this, I am finally ready to release the first version of “Food Substitutes” and my wife and I are very excited.

It all started back in November of last year when my wife came up with the idea of a healthy food substitute app.  After she did some looking there was none to be found on the android marketplace (a.k.a now Google Play). So that is where I started on my app but then the more I was working on it the more I realized that instead of just being a healthy food substitute app, it should be an app that contains all food substitutes.  Then we could just specially mark the ones that were considered “healthier” (I know “healthy” is a very subjective term, but gererally we believe the substitutes we marked as healthier are at least a little better for you than the original).

Anyway, we are excited!  Let’s see how it does.
