  • Useful but could be better/lost sign in

    By Criado too
    I use this to track calories and some specific nutrients. Importing data could be improved including typing data into a computer rather than a handheld device. (Allowing landscape entry would help!) A pantry feature would improve "what to eat next" by using what one has on hand. That could include, as a separate pantry, menus from common restaurants. A pantry could be used to suggest recipes. A planning day(s) would allow some what if scenarios to do longer range "what to eat next". UPDATE For quite some time, I cannot sign in and password recovery is not working. This, all my foods and recipes and data are lost.
  • Getting Better

    By kenpoengineer
    Getting better. Love the macro, micro, vitamin, mineral and other nutrition breakdown. If you want to get your nutrition corrected, then this app goes beyond just the protein/carbs/fat macros.
  • Solid app

    By harleybumpus
    I like being able to save my recipes so their nutrition info can be added to the food diary in one tap. Grateful this saves me from re-entering every portion of every ingredient for chili, pumpkin pie, etc.... every day. Whew! Also, love that we can add our own foods. I have great appreciation for how practical the app is for nutrition tracking. I would like to trend the data over time... app does not do this. Still, it does what it does well, and better than anything else my friends and I have found. I recommend it.
  • Helpful for Vegan

    By Tomboymonkey
    I started using this to make sure I was getting the nutrition I needed when I started eating vegan. There is currently no way to tell the program that I am a vegan, so I just checked "vegetarian". I like that it tracks my water intake as well – it reminds me to drink. You can set your desired nutrients (for the most part) for each day too. The bugs that I have experienced in the past 2 weeks are pretty minimal: 4 crashes (out of multi-daily use) when trying to chose from user-added foods, and some difficulty with the screen size. I wish I could set the "amount" of a food that I eat regularly when I save it as a favorite (for example: I drink water a cup at a time, but each time I return to the "water" profile I have to change the amount to "1 cup" from the standard "2 cups"). I'd also love it if there was a way to see the log of food eaten in a way that also showed when it was eaten, though that's a pretty minor improvement. Great app though! It's been working super well for me overall.
  • Life changer

    By Kent mitchell
    Lots of fun to know the details on what your eating
  • Well done - not well supported

    By Susanmariebanana
    Great UX! Or it was. It no longer connects to wifi or cellular data, so is now unusable for me on my iPhone 6.
  • My favorite app!

    By Borgelise
    Unlike other food diaries, this application counts everything: macros, vitamins, and even antioxidants. I can see where the gaps in my nutrition is on a daily basis, adjust and edit caloric needs and nutrition goals, put in recipes to track nutrition, and enter in my own ingredients. Healthful recipes and their nutrition content are available, along with links to sites with those recipes.
  • Great app

    By Ragged threads
    Works great. Initially produce section wasn't loading, but restarting the app cleared the issue.
  • Great Potential

    By Esbee77
    I love this app for being a dedicated resource for accurately tracking macros AND micronutrients. Plus, it plays nicely with HealthKit. The only thing that concerns me is that the developers don't seem to be making any more changes. Ingredients are a bit slow to load and the recipe interface could be a bit more clean. Their blog is abandoned and the last feature-add happened in early 2016. For a free app, I get it. But for a paid app...
  • Something I can actually use.

    By mada made dane
    I've made my own tracker using Excel that I update accordingly. This is practically a simpler version of it and I love it!
