A good, simple tracker

It must be hard to find the right balance between simplicity and features when designing one of these apps. I think this one strikes that balance better than others. The free version includes all the features you need for the app to be useful. Premium has features that appear to have some real value (the meal plans look interesting), but I don’t get annoyed at what I can’t do without premium (I.e. the other app I formerly used recently made the barcode scanner a premium feature. That’s why I switched.) I love how it shows macros for the full day, by meal, and by item right there in the diary. I don’t have to open a separate report to see how I’m doing. I also don’t feel any pressure to buy premium, there’s not a lot of flashy adds or stuff to constantly try to draw you back to the app, like many apps do. While I haven’t bought premium, this level of polite suggestion is most likely to get me to try it at some point. I love that I open the app and it defaults to the diary tab, not the newsfeed. I find such social features to be toxic, so it’s great when they’re easy to ignore. Entering food is a bit clunky, but will get easier as I populate it with foods I eat the most. One feature I’d like (and have requested from other apps in the past) is a simple check box by each food item. It doesn’t even have to do anything, just a visual display. This way, I can pre-enter my meals and check items off as I actually eat them.

One of the best food & macro trackers

This is one of the best food and macro trackers I’ve used. After experimenting with four or five others, I’ve been using this one now for the last six months. It allows me to share my diary with my dietitian. You can scan the barcode on the food instead of having to manually enter all of the information. When I search for a food many times I find the exact thing I’m looking for. My spouse uses the premium version, so he’s able to add recipes easily and get the nutrition information from the recipes within the app into his diary with one click. I wish there was a Family version so we didn’t both have to pay for premium in order for me to get that feature. I wish the water tracking feature wasn’t part of premium, but it’s easy to track your water along with each meal by searching for it as a food. It has the ability to customize the percentage of each macro that you’re targeting for the day so that in addition to tracking calories, I can keep track of how close I am to targets for protein and carbs.

Too many inconveniences

Used to really like the simplicity of this app. and I still like the layout overall. I have reported so many nutritional mistakes. I don’t know who is in charge of inputting nutritional information into the database, but everything I scan 90% of the time is incorrect. It’s incorrect by 10 cal or 1 or 2 g, and it is really frustrating because those add up after a while. I spend a lot of time correcting these issues in the app and sending in tickets to customer service. And I feel customer service doesn’t care.
Also, I would like to be able to input all the ingredients that I use to make a recipe without having to share the recipe, put how long it takes, etc etc. why can’t this be done? Also why is there no way to correct nutritional information in the cookbook section? Why can’t I scan each item? The cookbook section allows you to scan in the beginning but you can’t scan each item after and there’s no way to correct the information that is scanned if it shows up incorrectly and searching for the item in the cookbook section does not allow the user to correct information after as well.

Also, sometimes I don’t know how many servings it’s going to make and so I don’t wanna be forced to put. these are the reasons I will not purchase the app.

Developer Response ,

Hello - thank you very much for such a detailed review. We're sorry to hear you're experiencing so many challenges.

Can you perhaps send us a message via the Contact Us in the app, and just mark it attention for Ben Ryan - the customer service team will pass your email to me and I can then help you get set up properly/dig deeper on the issues you're encountering.
