Complete waste of time. Don’t waste your money on this app. I could find the nutritional value of “egg” at the main branch of the New York Public Library than through the food diary search. This is a scam.
App won’t let me log in... unusable. It was good before, but now I just get a message saying I lost my connection. Please fix. I have the pro version and would like to use what I paid for.
This app is great!! This needs more publicity. it's better than MyFitnessPal when it comes to track vitamins and minerals. I don't like how when inputting my personal macros it has to be percentages instead of grams. But the percentages should still be shown. The nutritional tracker is really good.
I like how easy this app is to use and it’s extensive database however it crashes on me a log and now it can’t connect to the network so I can’t even use it. No place to report bugs for app support either. So great idea but poor execution?
I have been using this app semi-regularly for three years, especially when I was underweight and trying to build back up in a healthy way. I love tracking micronutrients in my food— to me that is much more interesting than just tracking calories and macros. But my husband teases me about my love for Wholesome, because the database is relatively small, and because sometimes the food recommendations can feel a bit contradictory. (For example, I’ll be “in the red” for total sugars, over 50g, but under in carbs and my suggested foods will be cassava and raisins. Or I will be “over” in fat, but it will be suggesting nuts or bacon for their other micronutrients.) It isn’t perfect yet, but it has helped me see what nutrients I consistently don’t get enough of in my diet and gives me a chance to look back on my eating patterns. Things I want “fixed”: —An easily accessible user feedback form —Why do none of the entries for sardines include Omega 3 content? Same for herring, and mussels (which you must search for as “mollusks, mussels, blue”— thanks USDA) — Could iodine be added to the things we track? It’s important enough to supplement in our salt, and useful to track for people keeping an eye on thyroid health. —Could we select which days to average in the “my nutrition” section? I love the averages, but they are so skewed if I miss even one day of tracking. —Someday I would like to be able to break fat down by type. Not essential, but it would be interesting.
No where prior to installing this app does it say you must have a Facebook account to use it. Not everyone has Facebook. Very disappointed
They discuss being able to track the micronutrients but it’s behind a $4 paywall. I would have considered it if they offered a trial but with 3.5 star review average I’ll have to pass
I have loved the idea of this app and used it often for a few years, but whenever I enter my own food or vitamins, it adds nutritional value where I haven’t added anything. I was adding my B vitamin values and it added 800% vitamin D, plus saturated fat and protein!? Deleting the values doesn’t seem to help. As you scroll to others, values are added back. I’ve been surprised and curious at times when I enter foods I eat and they have a much higher nutritional value than I anticipated — probably because they aren’t accurate. This glitch has been happening for at least a year... I don’t see the value in this app if the nutritional values aren’t accurate.
First of all, on the app you have to add food one by one. I make a smoothie in the am and a salad for lunch and this is a pain! They say you can make recipes but the ingredient list is all recipes so doesn’t actually work. Then the app kicked me out of my account, wouldn’t let me log in, I clicked Forgot password and got no email, so I made another account and tried to charge me 3.99 again. Trying to figure out how to get my money back.
Not willing to spend $4 to see if it’s any good. Can’t do anything without upgrading to pro, so there’s really no free version.
