  • If Only it Worked Properly

    By loveagoodgirl
    This app has THE BEST healthy and FLAVORFUL recipes and most of them are so quick and easy to make.! The only thing that doesn’t work would be, recipes never saving to my favorites.
  • Not What It Advertises

    By holmes_rex
    Never synced with Apple HealthKit. Keep having to go into account settings and reconnect, but still never shows nutrients in HealthKit. Disappointed. Not worth the $4 yet
  • Amazing app, but would like to see local storage of data

    By NOStradomuz
    Really great app for tracking vitamins and mineral intake. I bought pro. The only problem for me is that it's all online. Would like to see a local data storage option.
  • Vegan

    By Kutebykari
    I wish there was a vegan option so the dairy and egg suggestions would not be on my list.
  • Downloaded, super interested, bought pro, never worked.

    By Flavie421
    Disappointed. I got this to try out and when I saw all it claimed to do, I bought the pro version. Upon reopening the app, logging in, and clicking a pro feature, it prompted me to purchase again....very frustrating. I’ve emailed the developer and requested help or a refund and have heard nothing. Account was charged, that I know for a fact.
  • Wouldn't let me Add Anything Unless I pay for the upgrade

    By aiha
    I tried to add food to the diary and it would keep telling me to pay for the upgrade. There was no option to say no. And now, I can't delete my account. Each time I press "delete account" and click "yes" it does nothing. I still see my account information and e-mail. This is a horrible app. Myfitness pal, cronometer, and loseit don't have the same issues. Use one of those apps instead.
  • Optimistic but disappointed

    By Passionate about Nutrition
    I have not come across an app so thorough and useful for tracking overall nutritional intake as this one. That said, to be useful it has to allow flexible, user-friendly units of data input for foods and it is sorely lacking there; I.e, 1/4 cup vs 1 T of pesto. The next problem comes with entering recipes. The above issue immediately manifests itself, but it also must all be done manually, one item at a time where other apps have website integration that make it a snap. (It says it can do this but has a bug and does not work). Also, editing a previous ingredient cannot be done. It must be deleted and added back in again. Finally, it fails to offer a standard user-friendly function... scanning of labels. I can't use this app and I paid for it. Love love love the nutrition component and how it looks for gaps and makes recommendations for nutrients no other app considers. Please fix this app! I want it to work!
  • Love this!

    By IzPer
    I use this with the dietary changes I have made for medical reasons. It helps me choose the most nutritious foods to eat and gives info on specific nutrients in each food and where to get the nutrients I am missing. Has opened my eyes to poor food choices versus good food choices. A really big help!!
  • Overcharged... Bait & Switch? Shell Game?

    By Jdtimes2
    I heard about the Wholesome app and looked it up in the App Store. Out of habit, I immediately looked at the in-app purchases. The app description shows three options for in app purchases. 1. Wholesome Pro $3.99 2. Wholesome Pro $2.99 3. Wholesome Pro $14.99 There is nothing in the description to distinguish the differences between each price level. So, I downloaded the free app to look it over. I clicked on a few features and liked what I saw. One of the features I attempted to select ("Eat" - which logs in a food diary that you have eaten the selected food) indicated that I would need to upgrade to the Pro version for $3.99. Again, there was nothing to indicate WHY the price was $3.99. (Why wasn't it $2.99?) There was no designation as to the level of service I would get for $3.99, nor was there anything indicating whether the payment was one-time or recurring. So, I searched the app description (again) as well as the developer website. There was no indicator on either site as to what I would be getting for my $3.99. Then I thought... this is less than the price of the sandwich I ate for lunch today... I'll buy it anyway. If it's recurring, I'll cancel it. So, I re-selected the "Eat" feature and opted to purchase Wholesome Pro for $3.99. The window to enter my fingerprint to confirm my $3.99 purchase popped up and I confirmed it. I then received an instant text message from my bank indicating that a withdrawal of $14.99 was made from my bank account. WOW! WOW! They took almost 4 times more money than they indicated they would. Don't forget this means they took almost 4 times more money than I confirmed they could! If not for my instant bank update, I might not have caught it. Be forewarned!
  • Amazing

    By GardenDelight
    Although it's not perfect it is probably the best four dollars I've ever spent on an app. Very powerful tool to make sure you're getting enough micro nutrients
