Since the 1st article I did for the iOS platform, some readers have asked for a list of Gluten Free Android apps, so here it is.
10. Gluten Free Ingredient Search by Sweet Tooth Software
This is probably one of the simplest apps I’ve ever come across – it’s a text based list of ingredients that according to the app is Gluten Free. This might come in handy for those who like to cook a lot for themselves of their family. You can download it here.
Gluten Free Food Finder by Brad Clouser
This app is one nifty application that you might need if you actually want to find out if the ingredients of what you are buying as Gluten.
How does it work?
Use the scanner to scan the barcode of the item you have.
This app uses community or crowd sourcing for its data, so items are updated easily by hundreds of users thus resulting in a better and larger database for everyone to use. Users can even contest or disagree with prior entries in the system.
Best thing about this app? It’s free – totally free, even from ads!
– Barcode scanner
– Easy to read “yes” or “no” result.
– The ability to update a result by disagreeing with it
– And pictures of monkeys (obviously)
– That’s it! Super easy.

Having problems or difficulty in deciding what is safe to eat? Worry no more. The Delicious Gluten Free Recipes app was made specifically to help people to be able to prepare gluten free food straight from your smart phone or tablet. Download the app here.
Recipes are broken down to different categories, so whatever you feel like eating – you most likely will have some version here.

Why Gluten Free Living Works by Pro Touch Marketing, LLC
This Gluten Free is App must be one of the apps that really looks like an app. Most apps that I have seen look like its basically just a list or an ebook.
Instead of giving you just a list of places or foods you can or cannot eat. This app seems to feel like it’s an informational tool for those who need Gluten Free food. Why?
It has a news segment where it features articles pertinent to the segment and it even has videos on how to prepare gluten free food, videos on information about Gluten Free, a barcode scanner and a coupons section presumably for restaurants or places that offer coupon discounts to food.
