Noom Weight Loss Coach, a leading weight loss app on the Android platform, has announced the release of its first iOS version today. Like its Android application, Noom Weight Loss for iOS will track exercise and food habits of users, and motivate users throughout the day to lead a healthier and more active lives.
To help members eat well, Noom Weight Loss tracks food intake through food logging. The search functionality is optimized for easy searching and browsing (find exactly what you're looking for in just a few keystrokes), and Noom’s simple green-yellow-red food logging system makes it a breeze to log your meals without having to weigh and measure every bite said Noom in a release.
To date, Noom has helped over 17 million people worldwide attain their health goals and lose over 30 million pounds. With Noom Weight Loss Coach on iOS, Noom hopes to grow those numbers exponentially in the coming months.
Saeju Jeong, CEO, Noom commented, “Noom Weight Loss first launched on the Android market in late 2011. Over the years we have been able to grow a large and loyal fanbase of Android users. We at Noom are always looking to make our products easy and accessible for everyone, so the next logical step was to expand to iOS, and we are so proud of the product we are bringing to iPhone users.”
Saeju's entrepreneurial journey started at age 19 in Korea, when he established BuyHard Productions, an independent music label chosen as the most promising e-business in Korea in 2001. After early success in Asia, his ambition led him to global markets and New York, where he was the sole representative of an international music company. Saeju was able to build the team for the Asian tour of the Broadway musical "Bye Bye Birdie," without knowing anyone beforehand. Despite his other interests, Saeju has always pursued technology, studying Electrical Engineering at Hong Ik University, working as an IT specialist in the Korean defense industry for 3 years, and completing a variety of IT certifications. Saeju was a speaker at beLAUNCH 2013, our flagship startup-tech conference, where in he shared his journey as an Korean- American entrepreneur.
Noom Weight Loss is currently compatible with iOS 5 and higher, and will be released in English and Korean, followed by more languages in the near future.
