Life changing.

I’ve been using this app for about 6 months now, and just with the little nudges and encouragement it gives to eat the right amounts of the right things, and move more, I’ve managed to drop 4 pants sizes! I had never thought in the world of heavily monetised weight loss and fitness that it truly could ever be as simple as “eat less move more” (and it’s not really - it’s not eat less it’s eat the right amount!) but Lifesum has helped me learn that. 6 months in I find myself using the app a bit less, but that is because it has helped to teach me a better lifestyle where I don’t need to micro-track everything I eat to balance my day, but I’m still very reluctant to let my premium membership go because it has had so much of a massive impact on my life. Truly paradigm-shifting!
The only thing I wish it had that it doesn’t is recipes that are a bit more “family” friendly (as in stuff I had a snowball’s hope in hell of getting a picky 4 year old to eat with me!)

I liked the app in the beginning because of its look, widgets and stuff, and got subscription but after using for 2 days I found that the app is full of bugs. First of all it doesn’t sync Fat % count, waist counts etc from Apple health, it only syncs with weight and bmi. Secondly the most annoying bug is that the widget and the app itself doesn’t sync properly. It shows one value (kal, protein, fat etc) in the app and shows different value on the widget sometimes (happens like 20-30 times a day, of course I didn’t exactly count but it happens a lot). This bug mostly happens when you worked out and burned calories, it doesn’t always take that into account in the widget but if you open the app and close it then the widget starts to show correct value again. Then if you lock your screen then sometimes (a lot) it goes back to old buggy numbers. This is a very basic test you should have done before releasing an update. Quality control team is not doing their job properly. You are charging people $10 per month (3 months membership) and giving this horrible experience. I might ask for a refund from apple but I just like the look of this app so much. So I’m still confused about asking for refund because I really want to use this app.
