    Abstract: Personal health management has been an essential issue in recent years. With the mobile information technology, various personalized applications have been developed for the user to manage his/her health anytime, anywhere. With the popularity of smartphones, such applications have been moved to smartphones due to their great computing and networking power. This paper introduces a health management application (app) run on iPhone. The app uses the QR-Code to input calorie and nutrition information of food, snacks and drinks. This is a novel way to record what the user eats/drinks. It is well known that the daily food intake of a person has a great influence on his/her health. But it has been very difficult to have such a record through manual input. Nevertheless, the data recording can be made easy with the QR-Code reading mechanism on smartphone. In addition, a user can also record his/her exercise activities through the app. Finally, a set of rules is built along with an inference engine within the app. With the personal dietary and exercise record, the app can provide personalized recommendations to the user following the rules. The app aims to provide useful recommendations to users who need to monitor his/her diet due to specific diseases or weight control. With this app, we hope to utilize the ease-of-use of the smartphone to achieve personalized health management.
