Hello:) I've been using your app for quite some time now and i'd like to give it a thumbs up. Its a great app, but I also have un suggestion.. you could add warnings for lacking or too much of specific nutrient (fats, vitamins, shugar etc.) depending on persons food diary. That would be great!
First and main question. Why don't you implement default language override? At least for list of available food. I have English locale but am a Russian speaker, so for me it's more natural to use food names in Russian. But you don't give me a chance. For me it's not a point to change system default language to use a single application. And as a user I also don't want to spend time filling in new foods on English database while they are available in Russian dictionary but for some reason are not returned in my search results.
It isn't complete user friendly, but you can do so much with this app. I love it more than My Fitness Pal and it's free! I wish you could search all your foods when you were adding to your diary. Now you can only look through recently eaten and most eaten.
Update 8/7/27- this becomes second nature after using it a while. If you use it, you will lose it! Invest in a food scale, too. Without weighing your food, you don't have any idea what you are eating. I still mis- estimate what I am eating unless I use the scale. The scale always proves that I don't have that good of a idea of how much I am eating. Update 1/24/15 It seems there are a lot more foods in the database, and they've added more portion options for the foods I eat (grams, ounces, small, medium, etc.) so it's easier to enter food no matter what portion I snack on. Good job Fat Secret. Previous review: It's easy to enter your calories, it remembers the foods you eat frequently, and it has a long list of foods to choose from. Yeah, You can enter and add custom foods too. Calories in, calories out.
This app is way better than My Fitness Pal. I used MFP years ago and it was fine, but when I downloaded it recently I couldn't believe how bloated it was with ads. Fat Secret has no ads, and the food database is just as good I think. It also allows you to track net carbs which is useful if you're following a low carb diet.
It be nice if there was more stuff for moms. I spend my days carrying and chasing a toddler. I love the fact that it helps keep track of my breastfeeding calories since I have been using the app for 1 year and a half. Be nice to see some mom stuff though like play with kids, push strollers that way I would know exactly how many calories I burn per day and I might not feel as lazy since being a mom seems to burn extra calories. Just letting you know as it be the perfect app though. Like I said though love it and will continue to use.
