bmiCal - a body mass index (BMI) calculator
bmiCal is a Body Mass Index (BMI) for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Your BMI is calculated using a fairly simple formula and the number returned is often used as an indicator of 'health'. There are data that do show that if your BMI is above, or below, certain values then there can be a direct impact on your heath, however, the calculation fails for the 'professionally fit' (e.g. athletes with high muscle mass), the young and the elderly.
The calculator can be used for metric (weight: kilogram (kg); height: meters (m)), pound (weight: pounds (lb); height: feet (ft) and inches (in)), and imperial (weight: stones (st) and pounds (lb); height: feet (ft) and inches (in)) calculations of your BMI.
The calculator will report your BMI, automatically converting between different units (so, if you enter pounds the calculator can also tell you the kilograms). The calculator will also give your ideal weight range in your preferred units, plus, if you are over or under-weight the calculator will report by how much you need to change your weight.
