New York: Re­searchers at Drexel Uni­ver­sity have de­vel­oped a com­puter game and smart­phone app to help peo­ple con­trol un­healthy eat­ing habits and ul­ti­mately lose weight.

The mo­bile app in­tel­li­gently de­tects pat­terns in a per­son’s eat­ing habits. When users are likely to slip from their di­etary plans, the app pro­vides tai­lored strate­gies to put them back on track.
