I'm disappointed with the app now. I "bought" this app years and years ago when I was first diagnosed with diabetes. It became a staple in helping me work out what I needed to inject for my diabetes. Now, after I already purchased the app back in 2012. 10 years later I now have to pay 35 quid a year to subscribe?? What a joke. There isn't a huge amount of food that's been added, majority was on there already so I don't see why, after I already "bought" the app back in 2012 I now pay again

Generally poor: inconsistent offering carbs for random sized portions, need to delve further to get carbs per 100gm for many items. Search for chunky chips brings up chunky kit-kat as well as potato chip options and includes Nandos skinny chips. Many normal UK foods not included; I started a list and gave up when the list exceeded the piece of paper I was writing on. Dreadful value for money; the book is a bit better, the app I won't renew my subscription.

I purchased the earlier version of this app, and now I've changed phone cannot get it to recognise I've paid. Not keen on the newer app as its got way more expensive for the full monty and also appears to have several bugs. Going back to my original book!!
