is the brainchild of one of our partners, who was trying to find an
app to help her predict the clothing sizes for her now 5 month old
daughter. In the midst of her search she realized NO ONE had written
an app to do this, in pieces or altogether.
So, she goes to her husband and says - you have a grad school buddy
who does apps, can't the two of you write this app for me? Off the
call goes and in a few minutes we're planning what the app should
do, and a few months later the app has become a reality,
Pint Size is launched.
Pint Size is based on medical
science, taking the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and WHO (World
Health Organization) research data on pediatric growth, and turning
those predictions into sizing recommendations. The height and weight
measurements you enter establish the current growth curve for your
child, and knowing that
Pint Sizecan read future weights and heights from
that curve. And knowing those, it is possible to look up sizes on
the size charts.
Pint Size relies on your entering
accurate height and weights, as recent as possible to reflect the
current growth rate of your child. These are S.W.A.G. (scientific
wild ass guesses), so they try to use the best predictors we have
today, but you know well your child is unique and will always
through you some kind of curve ball, like hanging out at their
current size longer than expected or having a spurt just after you
bought those new clothes. But at least these guess are better than a
dart tossed at a size chart or just following the age.
