I have talked about the Panera Bread app before and how it utilizes a lot of features Apple provides developers. It's one of the few apps that uses Apple Pay to securely pay for your food. I recently mentioned how it even rewarded me with a bakery item when I used Apple Pay. It also uses Touch ID to keep your payment information secure. Recently I found out it uses another iOS feature, the Health App.
The Panera app lists all of the nutritional information of the items you've ordered. After you make your selection you can review this information by scrolling to the bottom of the page in the app.
Something that might go unnoticed is the "Push Health Data" selection at the top of the list. Clicking this will copy all of the nutritional data to the Health app on your iPhone. I'm not someone who normally tracks this data but if you are counting calories or watching your sugar or sodium intake this is kind of handy to have. Once the data is transferred to the Health app a green checkmark will appear.
To view this data in the Health app you will need to enable a couple of things. When the Health app is open there is an option at the bottom of the screen labeled "Sources". When you select this option you will see the apps on your iPhone that can provide data to the Health app. I selected the Panera Bread app and it took me to another screen where I could choose what data the app could write to the Health app. These are all off by default. I chose to let the Panera app write all the data it can collect to the Health app.
Next, in the Health app there is an option at the bottom of the screen labeled "Health Data". Selecting this will show a number of options, one of them being Nutrition. You will see a number of nutritional data that can be collected. What you want is to track certain things on your Health Dashboard. This is where you can choose what items you want tracked on the Dashboard. As you can see in the image below I selected to show Fiber on the Dashboard.
I like when apps tie in to all of the cool resources Apple provides to the developer community. I can't wait to see what developers do with all of the enhancements in iOS 10.
