I wish there were a way to keep track of oxalate consumption within the app, like a calorie counter, but for oxalates. To be fair though, I'm only a few days old to the platform so maybe I haven't had a chance to explore all its features? An all-in-one calorie tracker/nutrient/oxalate app allowing for energy expenditure (the ability to deduct workout calories) would be ideal!

I'd rate this app 5 stars except for two issues. The search function is so (unbelievably!) slow displaying what I type in that it's pretty much useless. The food lists are great, but they only scroll while your finger is in contact with the screen. These two problems really slow things down. Turned off/on phone (Samsung Galaxy 7) and uninstalled/reinstalled the app... no difference. Emailed the developer but got no reply. EDIT 4/10: Thank you, Denise... it works perfectly now!

What a great app! I've had a multi page Excel spreadsheet on my phone, but these lists are useful, including common foods and a lot of good reminders and refreshers. As a busy mom with a tendency to form stones, I honestly need to go back and be reminded. This app is laid out clearly and intuitively and I am so thankful that the developer took the time to create this!
