Ratings and Reviews
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.

Helpful and Informative
Fooducate helps me be more aware of every bite I put in my mouth, because I know I will have to enter it into the app. I like that it also helps me understand more about the quality of ingredients and nutrients I'm consuming. I wish that it had an easy way to know more about a food before adding to my daily intake. I find that I have to add a food first in order to see just how it will affect the daily goals, nutrition info, etc. It would be helpful to me to be able to look at that detailed info as I try to decide what to choose for snacks and meals. The feature may be there, but if it is I haven't found it yet. I've been using the app a little over a week and have lost over a pound, so I'm seeing good results. It reminds me of when I used Weight Watchers points tracking, which also worked well for me. I also like the diet tips, where I have read some interesting information. The notifications are nice to help me remember to log in each meal before I forget what I ate. This is a good solid app. I have also found it worth the extra money to unlock the premium features. I plan to continue using this one!
This app changed my life
For years, I had all the intentions of buying and eating healthy food - but I was mislead by the “healthy” brands. When I realized that you need to check the labels and read ingredients - I was frustrated that it takes long time and learning (eg, more than 20 names to sugars are used just to hide the fact that a product contains lots of it 🙁).
With Fooducate, I just scan the label and get healthy scores, and tips. It also offers alternative product which is similar but more healthy. For example, it helped me replace all the junk heavy sugar cornflakes, with low sugar alternative - and oatmeals.
The main feature of the app is scan food. You can also personalize recommendations, based on your diet goals.
Using this app was the biggest and easiest improvement in my health habits...
