Review from Vincent Davies
Love it Love this app because it has all the shops I get my groceries from and all the products nutritional info. I'm from Botswana, but we have all the shops that South Africa has so i use that to help me out. Maybe you could try adding a BMI input into the app, as well as maybe integrating endomondo.
Does what it says on the box. Easy to use and somehow it makes calorie counting really fun! I'm surprised by how much I'm enjoying this. Already managed to lose some weight. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because the database is still lacking many popular items and new items I've added don't immediately show up publicly - in fact I don't know when they do. Also, it should be made possible for us to edit new food items I've previously captured and published in order to correct mistakes. Other than that I'm really loving this app.
My use of this app has been for calorie tracking, macro nutrient tracking, etc. I love it with one exception, I meal prep sometimes and would like a more convenient and upfront way of creating a Saved Meal. As far as I have found so far, the app only permits you to make a saved meal when you are trying to add a meal for a day (some of my meals are planned out a week in advance and not eaten that very day). It would be awesome if I could create a saved meal without going through that roundabout process.
It really does keep me on track. Really easy to use and very helpful to know how many calories carbs protein fat etc is in everything we eat. Will continue to use for a long time to come.
**THE GOOD:** Clean, minimal, intuitive interface. Extensive calorie database with ability to input. Able to save your meals/recipes, barcode scanner, and "recently eaten/searched" list for ease of entry. You can sign up to store your info on their server, but you don't have to give them anything if you don't want to. Weight tracker with adjustable calorie goals based on your weight. Tracks macronutrients. **THE MEH:** Would have liked an "exercise goal", darker interface background theme option (for night use, to avoid blinding my eyes, and to save battery), an abilty to input a specific number calorie goal, tracking of micronutrients/vitamin intake. **THE BAD:** The exercise database seems too heavily weighted? Not sure if I trust it. No abilty to "browse" exercise database. Doesn't sync with wearable exercise trackers (or, at least, not the "Shine" that I personally have).
I started counting carbs. This app has been very helpful. Most national food brands are already in there and some local brands are too. If you need to add a food, it's easy. I've been easily able to keep track of my nutrition and calories burned. Bonus: the app runs without a glitch. THANKS FOR THE APP.
Invaluable when you want to lose weight, track calories/exercise and stay motivated. Gets better and better.
