It doesn't matter when you eat; it keeps track of what you eat. You can put everything in one meal category if you want and it will keep track of how many calories you ate, nutrients you ingested, items in the different food groups you got, etc.
When you create an account, it asks for your height, weight and gender and determines your calorie needs from those characteristics, as well as any goals you have like gaining or losing weight. Then you can get a report of how much of the different food groups you got in a 24-hour period, and where you might be eating too much or not enough, whether you're meeting your need for specific nutrients and so on.
