Best Food Tracker app?

I was wondering if anyone uses an iPhone or other phone for that matter to tracker what they eat? I have the MyNetDairy app but I don't think it is calculating the correct amount of nutrients within each food. I tried the LiveStrong app too but it does not show a break down of the nutrients.
