Great idea

Really good idea and invaluable for people like me who want to ensure a fully balanced diet, I am vegan so I can clearly see what I need to eat for example if I need more protein. However, the app itself still needs some work, the app is slow and not very responsive and the database is small, mainly American food and you cannot multi add so it is very time consuming. Please update with new features then it will be great.

Not a major concern for the developer

Been using for over a year, Developer only updated the app at new year, to add some new meals and make it XR /XS compliant for App Store. Clearly this app sits on the very far back burner for the developer, and he only tweaks it around January to cash in on the diet and exercise fad around January, it’s a great shame he doesn’t care about the app, cause it could be something special, instead its a very buggy mess. He needs to put some effort into fixing the bugs. Simple things like Vitamin K, which when it transfers the data to Health app the figure are no where near correct, vastly wrong. This one is important to me for my Heart and Arterial health. Another example try adding in your own data. I added a multivitamin, the app blows the numbers up a third in cases, it would take 200% nrv and change it to 300% NRV - very sloppy basic programming there. Get your finger out Developer and sort this mess.

Update : March 2019

My foods section, Favourites, it crashes on my phone every time I open it

Excellent idea, poorly maintained

Great idea for an app, and just what I need - however it is incredibly buggy. I have now paid for pro and have many problems. "Fats" has disappeared in the nutritional counter and when you tap on an ingredient from "suggested foods" it does not tell you what it's good for as it does from food diary entries. You also cannot use the search by nutrient feature or the "best food sources"/"health benefits" of each nutrient from the nutritional counter. As someone who eats vegan meals mostly I bought the app for this feature to balance my eating. It is unfair to make someone pay for a poorly maintained app. Please fix it.
