This app is better than any other app for tracking carbs, but that's pretty much it. It says you can sync devices, but my Fitbit doesn't sync even though it says it's connected. Overall the carb count is excellent, but I would like to see better Fitbit integration. Apparently they don't have any deal with Fitbit, because you can't see Atkins as a compatible app on the Fitbit list. Honestly out of all the diet apps, this one is definitely lacking the most, but if you are doing an Atkins style diet, this app is the best one to count your carbs. It feels to me like an older person made it for older people, as it definitely doesn't feel it was designs to be sleek and user friendly.
I wanted to track my carb intake and it does that. It could really stand a few updates though. If you have the capability to scan why not connect to a data base? Make it easier for the user. Also need to be able to add the stuff to my fav list so I don't have to dig for it. Recipes are limited. The list of acceptable foods doesn't expand. Not sure if it's a glitch or what. Would live to see these things improve.
A little buggy. When scanning a barcode there's no option to add to favorites. When quick adding a food, there's no option to add to favorites. My biggest issue is that after you add a good, you get a prompt to add another or be done. If you pick add another, it just goes right back to the food you just added, not the search screen. You have to pick done, then select the meal you want to add to again. The food database could be bigger too.overall, this app does what I want it to. Love the dashboard. I get excited when I see there are updates, thinking some of these issues I've had might be fixed but still waiting.
The database of foods for you to log is so limited you have to Google everything. It doesn't offer meal plan ideas, tips, helpful articles, or any support. Seriously considering trying another plan that can be more helpful and informative and interactive. I found myself going to the my fit was pal app or Google. This app does nothing.
This app needs huge improvements! It doesn't save anything you track. If you want to look at yesterday or the day before, it doesn't show that you tracked anything. It just deletes it. The scanner needs updating! It can't ever find what you scanned! It's super aggravating. I'd do better with a pencil and paper. Some packages say 3g of net carbs but when you scan it, it'll tell you 4g of net carbs. How confusing!
PIECE OF JUNK! Atkins plan worthless with this piece of junk app. I started Atkins specifically because I could use the app to make it easy. Network error...uninstall then install again...network error... uninstall, reinstall...over and over and over. I then tried to log in thru their mobile site... same issue... network error!! I'll try Jenny Craig or another plan. Goodbye Atkins.
