Love this app with the money spent

I upgraded to the gold and although pricey, it’s worth it to use all the functionality - I often cook from recipes online and I can just import them in. There also an oracle feature that recommends how you can adjust your diet based on what you’ve eaten so far - haven’t used it heaps but hints to the right foods to get more balanced is pretty cool. The scan tool works great and ive found it really accurate, database is extensive and uses real data not junk data like some sites- it includes Australian foods which is awesome unlike other sites I’ve used that were all US-focussed. The ability to track macro and micronutrients means I can make really informed decisions on what I eat - just overall gotta say I’m just really loving this app for making it easy and relevant to people like me concerned about their diet. Great for anyone wanting a useful decision-making tool.

Great app

I’m a paid subscriber of this app, and for good reason; it’s excellent and the price very reasonable! It’s great to be able to track micro nutrients as well as macros and have it calculate my BMR from Apple Health stats and take into account the day’s activity from my Apple Watch. It’s helped me to see where I’m missing things in my diet so I can take steps to rectify and has helped me get closer to hitting my daily macro targets. I used MyFitnessPal for the same thing before but it just doesn’t do the job as well as Cronometer. The web interface is great too. My only gripes are that the app’s performance could use some improvement. Restrictive “loading” modal pop ups could be removed with updates running in the background etc. Sometimes it totally freezes and I have to kill the app and launch again, but these issues are not enough for me to look for something else. I’d like to be able to use formulas to calculate macros based on various stats also. Not sure how viable that is but just a suggestion. Overall great app and I can’t wait to see what features come next.

Nutritional information incorrect

I would like to give this app 5 stars however the nutritional information is never correct. I have a packet of noshu blondies sitting in front of me, the carb count is 4.2. The chronometer tracker has the carbs at 11.4 per serve. It took me a while to figure it out, whoever entered this into the database has added the total carbs plus the fibre plus the xylitol together to get the carb count. This is ridiculous, why would you add total carbs and fibre together to get the total carbs. The carb count is out for most foods which is frustrating because then I have to enter the food as a custom food. Also when I try to get the nutritional count of regular food like fruits and vegetables i am lucky if I get one normal result, the rest of the list is just processed rubbish food. I guess the American diet is full of rubbish plastic food so the database reflects that.
