Main downside that made me look for a different app is that it doesn't provide reminders/push notifications to log meals. I also emailed support to ask if this feature was available and never got a reply so that's not a good sign either for support. (I also posted the question in the Community and got answers there ultimately). While the barcode scanner didn't work well for me, I could usually find my food in the database by manually searching so that's a plus.
I downloaded this app because I wanted to see my macros better than other apps like Lose It or My Fitness Pal. It had good reviews online. I scanned my first item in and it didn't exist so I took the necessary pics and added it. I received a message that there's a backlog on adding foods and it will take time to add this food item to the database. I need to be able to input what I'm eating to track it, so this does not work for me.
APP idea is great, love that you have choice to scan or search for products in order to get valuable info that is catered to your goals, my goal is weight loss and overall has been very helpful and very easy to use. I find my product, I look at the Fooducate rating for my weight loss, and tap "why" to find out the good and bad about product. The app does much more too! Looking forward to see how much better this app gets. I will probably end up getting paid version for the extras. Excellent idea!!!
Was great for half of the day then it crashed and hasn't worked since. It gives me an error message of "oops something went wrong ... (200500)." I also received an email from fooducate for complementary fooducate pro tip, but the link is broken. Need to fix these errors.
Love this app in comparing gluten free products & healthy drinks. Really nice how it explains ingredients whether good or bad for you, along w the A- D rating system. PLUS which foods have GMO's/ or are processed. 5 stars all the way!
Easy to add my foods. Love scan feature. Really love photos attached to entries that makes it easy to find them in my library of foods. Really would like ability to alphabetized my foods to make it even easier. Would also be great if it could interface with other wellness apps like "Healthie", etc.
