I tried using this for a food journal as an alternative to something like MyFitnessPal which has more features than I need. I’ve used it for two days and there are significant bugs. I tried and gave up. It’s on the right track but for paid software it is totally unusable. First, the recipes function does not properly compute nutrition; for example, the total sugars for a recipe with only 2 ingredients are more than the weight of the ingredients themselves. The recipes function also seems to have a key index or off by one error; when I enter a second recipe and click the nutrition summary, it pulls up a different recipe with all zeros for the nutrition. These errors propagate into the journal summary. The camera (barcode) button only works on the main search tab, but not anywhere else. The button is there but it does not respond to clicks. The journal seems to have some timing errors. I changed time zones and my journal suddenly showed a second entry for the same date. The workflow to update an entry in the journal is very cumbersome. If you update an entry it actually creates a new entry with a different serving size. The journal seems like a hack. The entry for a day is kind of like a single meal with a large serving - the developer is trying to shortcut and use the same database schema for everything and it just doesn’t work. There’s no way to update entries in the past (not the current day). I’m going to find something else and try and salvage my two days of lost time bookkeeping with this app.
I dont know why this is well rated. Entered my own brand of dried cranberries but when entering into a recipe only allowed brands built in. Cannot delete ingredients if u make mistake. Pointless icons.
The app glitches a lot. You can’t add your own custom foods, you can’t make recipes with the foods that are already listed on the app. When journaling sometimes it’ll get stuck and put the wrong nutrient info no matter what portion you’re journaling it may say something like 4000 calories for .5 cup of beans. I normally don’t write reviews but paying for this app, and not having it work the way it was designed to is frustrating. It’s not completely bad, but there are a lot of limitations I’d like to see fixed.
So far this is a very good app, but I’ve come across a few bugs that need fixing. First bug: I tried to add a new item to my pantry, and it overwrote another item I had in the pantry. I ended up with 2 versions of the new item and the other item disappeared. Second bug: I was adding a new item to my pantry, and the nutrition values were being stored in the wrong places. The item had 300 mg of sodium. I entered the Sodium, but the app displayed it as 300 g of sugar. I entered the amount of sugar, and it wasn’t displayed at all. Since I’m diabetic, this bug really concerns me. Can you please fix it?
I didn’t see a tutorial, which I could really use. I find it frustrating that when I want to create a recipe, there are often only brand name versions of ingredients that should just be raw. Since I am not sure what the brands represent nutritionally, this seems odd. I made a sweet potato soup for instance. When I tried to indicate that the recipe calls for 1.25lbs of sweet potatoes, I could not. Instead, there were many brands of sweet potatoes listed and none were available to input in quantities greater than 200 grams (pounds were not an option). I had to calculate grams to pounds and then input several different brands of sweet potatoes at 200-grams each. I had no idea if these were all plain, raw sweet potatoes. This seems really weird. Also, as a vegetarian, I am concerned about niacin intake. I purchased nutritional yeast powder (unfortified). No such thing exists in the database. In general, I want plain foods, not brands, and in standardized measurements. Some foods are available in tbs. some in grams. Some only in ounces. It’s all over the map.
I am a registered dietitian and I have my MS in Nutrition. I teach an online nutrition class for a community college and have been searching for an app that is inexpensive, user friendly and not bias towards weight loss, that I could recommend to students. Initially this app seemed perfect, I like that you can calculate your own nutrient needs and manipulate the profile. I like that it syncs with iOS health, which I use. However, after several days of use I’m really frustrated by the way it tracks sugars. It tracks all sugars (including naturally occurring sugars from fruit or milk) not just added sugars, which is what I want to know. I had eggs, two pieces of fruit, a kale salad, and a small piece of lasagna yesterday. While I was on target with calories, fat, protein and carbs.... my sugar category was really high, despite the fact that I had nothing with any added sweetener. This really needs to be fixed!
So I wasn’t a big fan of FitnessPal and I like the look and feel of this app. The biggest drawback is when you enter in something into the Pantry, it goes out and grabs information that may already be in the database. If I am adding something to my Pantry, I want it to reflect the nutrients that I put into it and not something in the database, that is incorrect.
I made the mistake of purchasing reading great reviews. There was no free trial because you would not purchase this app when the free ones available are far superior with a live selection of foods that can be scanned in. This app only offers the most common brands such as Quacker. Save your money and get a free version or at least one with a free Trial. These reviews c as my be legit.
Either the nutrient listing on the back of the bag of Brad’s Crunchy Kale is way off, or your nutrient listing is way off. Whereas the Brad’s package says that there is 30% daily value of Vitamin A in 2 ounces of their product, the App says that there is over 2000% daily value of Vitamin A in 2 ounces of their product. I’ve noticed some other discrepancies as well, which tend to lower my level of trust in the App. I don’t regret buying the App, as it has helped me see where I am lacking in my diet, and it’s fun to see the bars on the chart increase when I add a certain food to address that issue. I just wish I could trust it more and don’t have to keep second guessing it.
As much as there are aspects that are lacking (I’ll get to them) this is a great app in comparison to a lot of the others out there. I haven’t found one with this much detail and flexibility. Short comings: There is a bug (v8.3 currently) that will mess up “pantry” items (things you enter as standard foods not in their exhaustive catalogue) and I get duplicates instead of adding a new item, or an old item replaces the new one. It is bizarre. Same with “recipe” items. When entering a pantry item, it doesn’t allow you to put in decimals of micronutrients, and it doesn’t allow you to put in text to the service description (e.g. just “1” not “1 cup”) In the review of the day’s nutrients, it would be nice to be able to tap on a nutrient and have the contributing items drop down (e.g. what did I eat that had those trans fats in them? Have to look through each food and see what it was). In the profile, you can update all the nutrients, but it doesn’t reliably adjust the number of calories you target for the day. Even if your target is 3,500 (I’m an endurance cyclist, I can burn 8k in a day), it just says I’m at 100% my daily calories, but 60% of the main macros. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to copy foods from one day to another. Dinner one night is lunch the next day, so being able to copy items over would be nice. Overall I have found it helpful to dial in my micronutrients with this app and appreciate the variety of macros in common foods. I’ll be sticking with it, but with the wish list above.
