  • Highly recommend!

    By foodScienceFreak
    This is a great app to keep track of micro and macro intake. There are some GUI changes I would like to see in regards to accessing foods that have been favorited. But other than simple changes like that this is a wonderful tool and I’d highly recommend it to anyone interested in engaging more closely with their food. My favorite feature is the “suggested foods to eat next.” This feature gives you suggestions for how to fill in the rest of your dietary needs for the day. Again, I am very satisfied with my purchase of Wholesome and highly recommend it.
  • Missing Basic Foods

    Three stars for the theoretical ability to track micronutrients. I wanted to like this, but I don’t see the point of using a nutrition app that doesn’t know that turnips and collard greens exist. I’d expect there are quite a few other things too.
  • Bad customer service

    By Hoots12
    App was awesome AT FIRST. But for the last month I have had issues with it not adding food to my diary and I have contacted the developer twice in two different formats and 0 response. Just bad customer service.
  • Filled with bugs!

    By psychsys
    This app would be great if it weren't for all the bugs. The most recent one to surface is the app is saying 1/2 cup of spinach and a whole cup of spinach have the exact same calories and nutritional values! The calculations this app gives aren't even semi-reliable.
  • Has the Potential fro Greatness

    By kittykatwuvsyou2
    I love how simple and thorough this app is. It’s pretty easy to find foods or add your own, and it keeps track of a looot of macronutrients and micronutrients, which is particularly helpful for me as a vegan. However, there’s one very annoying problem with this app... It has this bug where when I use it for a little while, it will stop letting me add foods. I can still look foods up, but when I hit the “Eat” button is gives me an error message saying it can’t connect to network. Once I get this, I can’t seem to ever get this message to go away. It was so annoying I uninstalled the app for a while, but ended up reinstalling it again. Two days later, I’m getting this message again 😡 If just this was fixed about the app, it would be perfect. As it is though, this bug renders the app useless once it starts.
  • Great app!!

    By Banathahla
    I love this app! It allows me to keep track of vitamins, nutrients, minerals, etc to make sure I am getting enough. It also tells you about what they all do and which foods you can get them from.
  • Almost There

    By haley.ellis92
    I find this app helpful and informative, but it’s not everything I need. It is great for pinpointing nutritional deficiencies and discovering new ways to fill the holes. However, to be a one-stop-shop, it needs an all-encompassing database similar to MyFitnessPal. This app lacks a barcode scanner, brand name items (everything is entered as generic items like “yogurt” or “oatmeal”), and a more customizable measuring system. I find myself using both MyFitnessPal and Wholesome, and I’d like to use one app for everything.
  • Errors: Could not connect to network

    By MAH1966
    Keep getting this error for the last 3 days. Seriously?!? Any possibility of fixing anytime soon? Thx.
  • Not a free app

    By Laurenisme
    I don’t mind paying for apps but with so many bad ones out there I want to be able to try them out before I do. This app does not let you add a single item to the food diary without buying the app. It really seems pointless to even offer up the app as free when you have to immediately buy it to use it. A week or a few days of use before requiring purchase would have been great. I’m not willing to take the risk.
  • Awesome app

    By Stewson5
    I was so excited to find this app! I have wanted to list out my diet and figure out what nutrients I'm not getting enough of but had no idea how to do this. This app is awesome in the way it shows you what nutrients your food has, what you are low on, and how to get more of it in other food sources! Not to mention it explains how each nutrient is good for you and symptoms of deficiency. Super cool and well thought out, and easy to navigate. I did find that there are a few things that it doesn't track such as iodine and a few others but overall great app!
