The future is here for iPhone 6s users with the addition of 3D Touch, which allows you to interact with your phone in an entirely new way. The latest update to the LIVESTRONG.COM Calorie Tracker app for iPhone takes advantage of that new technology with the addition of a 3D Touch quick-access menu for Force Touch-enabled devices. The 3D Touch menu allows users to quickly track items for breakfast, lunch, dinner and water on the fly (much faster than the traditional method)!
