Let's celebrate International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste

Join us and let's celebrate the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste!

Did you know a third of all the food produced worldwide is lost or wasted? The incredible amount of 1.3 billion tons per year! This waste is responsible for 8-10% of all global emissions, which contributes to the climate change threat, one of the greatest of our time. But not only that, other essential resources that are key to feeding more people, such as land and water, are also lost in the process.

We need to eat (obviously), but current food consumption patterns are unsustainable from both health and environmental points of view. From all the food waste, 40% is generated at home. We all are part of this problem, and we can do much more. We need to change not only what we eat but how much food we buy and throw away. Together we can make a big difference!

This year, we want to celebrate this day with a new update that includes some exciting news and features.

Your insights are here!

You've been putting in the work, and now is time to see the results. If you have been using the consume and trash actions, check your all-time consumption insights directly in the settings. Want to know more about a specific food consumption rate? Just go straight to the food card to see more about it.

This update is the first step to provide you with all the information to understand your consumption habits. Our objective is to help you make better informed and more sustainable purchasing decisions so you can save both food and money.

Happy new year

Kiff anniversary and makeover!

We can't believe a whole year has passed since we launched this little app. Time flies! We wanted to do something special to celebrate this important milestone, so we've been working on a brand logo and app icon. We are also working on some merchandising, like enamel pins and stickers. So, if you are interested, stay tuned! We hope you like it!

πŸ₯‚ Here is to another year! We are very grateful for having you along with us on this journey, and of course, if you need help or want to share something with us, drop us a line at support@kiff.app. We'll love hearing from you.

See you in the next update! πŸ‘‹

Version 1.5.0
August 18, 2021

Happy new year

We've been working on this release for a while now, and we are beyond excited to finally share it publicly with all of you πŸ™Œ

We also want to take this opportunity to thank all our beta testers for joining us during these weeks and sharing their comments with us. They have helped us a lot.

What's new? A lot, actually!

Barcode scanning

The big star! You have been asking for it almost since our first launch. Well, you can now add packaged food faster than ever. Open up the scanner, and let's go for it:

  • Scan once to add.
  • Scan the same product more than once to set the stock.
  • Tap on the card to add the expiration date, adjust the stock or edit its data.
  • Scanning another product will archive the previous one.
  • Swipe left to delete and right to archive.

Not all barcodes will work, but if Kiff doesn't recognize the product at hand, it will trigger manual form. Fill it, and next time you scan the same barcode, all the information will be there for you.

"Who is going to track everything in our app? People are going to add a handful of things at a time. Nobody is going to log their entire pantry!" Boy, were we wrong, and that's awesome! We have redesigned the navigation system and added a new search feature. We hope that now you can find things more easily.

Food Catalog

Are you tired of adding the same info over and over again? Kiff will keep a history of all food added and prefill it for you with the new Food Catalog. You can think of it as a template catalog where you can fine-tune every detail. Want to tweak the shelf life of a particular food? Do it once, and Kiff will remember it the next time you add it.

Stock management and consume/trash actions

You are at the supermarket, you open Kiff, and you wonder, "Ok, onions are about to go bad this week. I need to buy more, but how many?" Now with stock tracking, you can know how many items are on your pantry and adjust your grocery shopping accordingly. Kiff can even automatically add food with low stock to a list in the system's Reminders app.

The consume or trash actions will lower the stock and lets you record what has happened with that food. You aren't going to be able to see that record for now, but be patient. We are working on something amazing behind the curtain.

Other features

  • New food entry form.
  • Food duplication.
  • List sorting per filter.
  • Context menus in food cards (iOS14).

Important announcement

This might be the last release that supports iOS13. So if you haven't updated your device yet, consider doing so.

Thank you very much for your interest in our app. If you need help or want to share something with us, drop us a line at support@kiff.app.

See you in the next update! πŸ‘‹

Version 1.4.0
May 25, 2021

Happy new year

Hi there!

We are thrilled to share with you that we are currently working on a pretty big update that will include many exciting new features, most of them already suggested by some of you.

Drumroll, please. Barcode scanning! Yes, we have been working really hard on making the process of adding food a little bit more frictionless. It's still in beta and needs some polish and love, but so far, it's looking fantastic. But, this isn't the only feature we are introducing in the next release. There are many more in the works, such as stock management, actions for consuming/trashing items, and a new home screen with new ways to filter and order your food.

OMG! How do I test all these features?

You're in luck! From now on, we are giving our Kiff users access to our beta program, The Counter, where you can test all these new features before they are available to everyone.

Just go to the settings menu, and search for our new beta access. You can directly enroll in the beta program by signing in with Apple. As simple as that! If you don't see the option, be sure your network connection is working fine.

When will it be available?

We'll be releasing this update as a TestFlight beta early next month. After a few weeks in testing mode, it will be available to everyone in the App Store.

One more thing!

We've something new you can try out right now, widgets! Keep all your food under control directly from your home screen.

Happy new year

As always, if you need help or want to share something with us, drop us a line at support@kiff.app. We'll love hearing from you.

See you in the next changelog! πŸ‘‹

Version 1.3.1
January 22, 2021

Happy new year

Happy New Year!

We're so glad to have shared this time with you and can't wait to continue improving Kiff in 2021. We've only been live for a few months, but are overwhelmed by the support and kind feedback, so thank you! Let's check out what's new.

New

  • Shelf life reminders: We've simplified the frequency of shelf life reminders. You can now choose between receiving just one reminder the day before your food is no longer fresh or up to three notifications based on your food's shelf life. You can select your preferred mode on the settings.

  • Watch over notification: You may be tracking food with notifications disabled or without shelf life and expiration date. We don't want you to forget about those items. So if you haven't used the app for a while, Kiff will send you a message to check on them. This notification is now always enabled.

Improvements

  • We have squashed some bugs here and there, along with some UI improvements.

Are you enjoying Kiff? Or are you finding it annoying and/or difficult to use?

Either way, please reach out to support@kiff.app, and tell us what you love or hate about this little app. We would be more than happy to hear from you and maybe become penpals, who knows!

Until the next update!

Nerea and Asier.

Version 1.3.0
November 26, 2020

New

Ouch! We forgot to start tracking the food we cooked yesterday! What now? Mmmm, we can track it now, but we have to remember adding a day every time we check our food's state on Kiff, sigh.

Don't worry! From now on, you can track any food from any past date. No matter when you remember to track something you cooked, bought, or open. Just long press the "Track" button and select the desired date. Super easy!

Note: Special thanks to one of our early users that was kind enough to reach us to suggest this feature πŸ™‚

Improvements

  • Modified the toggle input's color for iOS 14.

  • Form animations on iOS 14 were weird. They should work fine now.

  • On edit mode, Kiff won't select an icon for you as you type, unless you delete the food's name.

  • Other minor adjustments and improvements.

As always, if you have any issues or you want to make us a suggestion, please let us know by writing to us at support@kiff.app.

Hope you keep enjoying Kiff!

New

  • You don't need to choose an icon when adding your food anymore! Kiff will select one for you as you type. If you want, you can always change it by clicking on the icon.
  • Don't forget about your spoiled food. Now, Kiff notifies you when your food has been expired or not fresh for five days. You can launch the associated quick actions by long pressing this notification.
  • New quick actions from the app icon. Long press Kiff's icon to quickly view or add new groceries and leftovers.
  • From now on, if you tap on any notification they will take you directly to the food detail.
  • Notifications are enabled by default when you add a new grocery or leftover with shelf-life or expiration date.
  • Kiff remembers in which section you were (groceries or leftovers) once you close the app.

If you think any icon suggestion is missing when you add your food, let us know by writing to us at support@kiff.app, so we can take them into account for future updates.

We hope you are enjoying Kiff!

Version 1.1.1
September 25, 2020

Thanks for your support during the launch! This update includes minor bug fixes and performance improvements.

Improvements

  • We have improved accessibility with "Large Text" preference.

  • Other minor adjustments and improvements.

September 10, 2020

New

New notification badge. See how many groceries or leftovers are about to expire or stop being fresh without opening the app.
