Annoyed no that it keeps prompting me to rate the app

The developer responded to my 1 star review which made me feel kind of like a jerk for leaving a negative review in anger over the prompting for a review, which is apparently not their fault. The prompting for a review was still annoying but I appreciate the response so I’ll change it to 5 stars.

As soon as I started using it, it kept prompting me to rate the app so I’m giving it a 1 star in the hopes that the prompting will go away. I have no idea if the app is any good since I haven’t really started using it yet. Furthermore I would suggest that most of the ratings it does have are from similar circumstances where people just rated it to get the prompts to go away and don’t don’t really have any idea if the app was good or not. So annoying. Hopefully it really is a good app and eventually I’ll be able to give it a better rating, but I doubt I would be motivate to go back and write another review. You can tell how annoying the prompts were since I’m typing so much.

Very underrated

I think I found this app before The Most Popular fitness tracker gained so much traction, and tbh this app is still superior. The UI is so easy for me to navigate, it’s affordable, and the database of food has grown so much. I also love the long list of different types of exercise, and even though estimating calories burned is not an exact science, I appreciate any ballpark number of extra calories that I need to eat so I don’t hurt myself. Seriously, I tried these other, more talked about apps, and I just don’t want to quit this one. It’s not freaky and aggressive in its wording about sticking to diets and militant exercise and cult-like branded phrasing, and the orange, yellow, and earth tone colors are more pleasant. I also love that it gives you a flexible target date, so you can also set your goal based on the number of calories you want to eat per day. (I like smaller calorie deficits.) Also, bravo for the warnings about going below 1200 calories! Keep being responsible, please!

EDIT: I just deleted a star because I saw below what data they are collecting. Dude, collect my subscription money. Don’t invade my privacy like this. There is no reason to know my contacts, etc. Also, this shouldn’t be an app for ages 4+. Toddlers don’t need to diet. Kids and teens should not be encouraged to diet either given the statistics on the body dysmorphia and eating disorders they develop for life. Thanks!

Hi there, thanks for the thoughtful review and feedback! We don't collect your contacts, etc. In fact, we collect almost no data at all. The app is intended for use by people 17 and older, however, many schools use it to teach kids about nutrition using the food scanning element of the app. We vigilantly monitor and moderate our community to make sure participants are over the age of 18.

Mixed feelings

Only been using the app a month or so. Bought the annual subscription which is a good deal. I like how the app works and the database seems extensive. It’s easy enough to use and I have been tracking food carefully. It has made me make better choices.
However - I haven’t seen any weight loss this first month. Despite tracking carefully to the ~2k calories that it indicates, and doing daily light exercise (stationary bike) - the pounds will go down 1 day and back up the next. I am scanning and measuring the food out too. Perhaps it’s my age because I have no health conditions. The daily calorie limit does seem to be slowly tapering down in the app now. I assume that’s a feature that will allow me to finally start losing - but the lack of support and info doesn’t make it easy to figure out. I have emailed the support mailbox but the responses are slow to come. Been waiting 3 plus days now for my last question to be answered. It’s only my second email to them. Is there some sort of FAQ that explains how this all works and what to expect? I looked at the community forum section but it’s not intuitive to me. Lots of food pics is what I see there. Is there a place to post questions and get responses from other users? Still hopeful but a little bit disappointed as well overall.

Developer Response ,

Hi Joe, thank you for your thoughtful review. We are glad the app is helping you make healthier choices. Be mindful that 1 month is not very long to see much weight loss so do not feel discouraged.
