Excellent My husband just had a Whipple. With that comes a lot of changes in eating that are necessary. Foods that used to be OK no longer are and each person is different. This allows me to track what he is eating and when then also track any bad symptoms and when as well. My biggest wish would be ability to sync between devices. Even having to pay more that would be a highly valuable feature.
Simple and easy - Just Needs One Thing So far this app is easy to use and the export feature is very welcome. It has all the features I need but if you're looking for calorie or points counting, you'll need to look elsewhere. The ability to create your own categories is very useful as I am using these to track when I take medications and when I experience symptoms in addition to tracking food intake. What would make this a 5-star rating from me would be the option to have previously entered items appear in the "Title" field as you start typing. This would be espcially useful when combined with the export feature as you could then easily count the occurrences of items without having to account for variations in the way they were entered. UPDATED: Sometime after typing this review, I noted that previously entred items started appearing. No idea how or why, but it's working, so changed to 5 star rating. And on a positive note, the developer promptly replied to my concern re: items not appearing, so obviously pays attention to the reviews made. Unlike a lot of other developers out there!
INPUT CATEGORIES FIRST It deleted all my entries when I added a new category. I thought that was a bit messed up. Glad I only had a day's worth in there. Also glad it was only a buck. Great layout. Simple. Easy UI. But that quirk was a deal breaker. That simple fix would bump my review up to four stars.
Food diary Couldn't use exported ss csv file. All data in one column. Contacted Geoff Holden via email. His quick reply explained the the csv export is tab delimited, not comma delimited. To get that in my Excel, I need to open excel, use File/Open to select my exported csv, then choose the option that says use tabs as separators. Works fine now. Choosing to export as XLS is easier now that I am aware of that option.
Bugged First it deleted all of my Saturday entries once Sunday hit, then it began to tell me I had not bought the app and even after restarting, deleting, reinstalling, it still doesn't work. I would have asked for support but there is no visable means to ask for it, so all I can do is leave this review.
