I really love this app. The food diary option works great, and their database allows the user to add any foods it doesn’t have. I love how pretty it is, and how it can suggest good nutrient sources if you’re low in something for the day. It also has USDA options for foods. Each nutrient has a write up that is interesting & informative. I really appreciate the work that went into creating this useful tool that helps keep me healthy and well!
I love the idea and wish it was all I hoped for. Being a nutrition aware individual for fun I wanted to see how well this app could track what I already know I am eating but there were huge red flags when non of my supplements were in the barcode database. Making it a huge pain to enter multivitamins such as source of life with tons of vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients some not even listed to be able to be entered manually. Beta carotene doesn’t reflect in vitamin A consumption. Also massive lag time, making it hard to deal with. Can’t search by nutrient page doesn’t load. Also didn’t accurately reflect what I was consuming even after manually entering things. Which definitely doesn’t make it worth the time. Maybe could use it to quick search nutrition of food but google does it faster. Of course keep up the work producer it has potential keep on investing into the app if it was streamlined and accurate it’s be AMAZING!
I was excited for this app, but it’s a let down. They do not have a lot of food and you can’t add any. If you create a recipe and eat it, it won’t track that nutrients. You can’t adjust the amounts of each food, even though they provide the option too. You adjust it and it just reverts back, I put is two tsp and it reverted to 2 cups. I guess it’s fine for you just sort of basic broad nutrients, but not if you’re serious about tracking exactly what you eat. Also, you can’t track without buying, which was super disappointing to me now that I see if for what it really is :(
I just purchased the app and when I try to log my meal, it sends me back to the purchase page without allowing me to log anything. It’s frustrating.
You have to pay for the pro version in order to use the food diary, it’s not intuitive to add items, and it’s a bug-filled, crappy app that won’t let you consistently or accurately adjust your portions. Not worth it. Wish I could get my money back!
I bought this app because it broke down and tracked nutrients very well, but when I tried to use it, it became clear that it is far inferior to other trackers in terms of the foods available in the database. You can’t easily add specific brands, and there is a difference between “whole wheat bread” or “multigrain bread” and “Terra Grains Heart Healthy,” etc. This takes us back to 2000 in terms of usability, having to enter in every specific food to get an accurate picture. I bought it because other trackers don’t have a setting for pregnancy, but I wish I hadn’t spent the money because I simply won’t use it.
Best micronutrient tracker!
This was the app I needed to track the nutritional values of foods. I have CKD and need to closely monitor my intake of certain nutrients. This app allows the user to set values for every kind of personal guidelines such as salt, sugar, carbs, protein and so forth, so improve to slowing down progression of the disease. I downloaded other nutrition apps prior to finding this, and it exceeds all the others in versatility.
I can’t add customized foods. Ever time I go to try to add the vitamin details it auto fills in other fields. I tried canceling and going back in but couldn’t get it to take. I was super excited for this app but can’t get it to work.
I love this app it is amazing - better than my fitness pal, because it tracks more, has more functions, and it’s easier to use. If I were to wonder “How the heck did I consume so many carbs already?!” on this app I can quickly see by tapping on the carb bar and seeing a quick breakdown of just exactly which foods contained how much - invaluable. I love how I can also tap on a part of my nutrition, say vitamin E for example, and see what I can eat to get more of said nutrient. Love love love this app! It is not perfect though, some foods are uploaded incompletely and some foods uploaded by other users can also be incomplete or erroneous. And I do wish this app tracked cholesterol - the one thing it’s missing. But if I really want to, I can spend some extra time and use my fitness pal to track that. Please don’t ever take this app down!! This app is so needed and important!!
