It's a good idea, but the usability needs improving. I can never find where to log my weight.
Best food app for scanning barcodes
I recently rejoined after a long hiatus (and substantial weight gain). There are many updates that make logging so much easier. There are a lot of new features that I feel help to keep a person motivated. I've been back on for a week, and logging has been easy and quick. I actually look forward to logging all of my meals, water, and exercise! Have lost 4# in the first week just by paying attention to my calories again.
Love it. This app makes it so easy to keep track of calories. I love that it connects to my Garmin to adjust my calorie needs for the day. I haven't ventured in much past the calorie and nutrition tracker but I will at some point. The only feature I wish the app supported is being able to adjust my start and end of day. As I work second shift, my days do not usually end until around 3 in the morning so I have to make sure that anything I eat after midnight goes on 'yesterdays' log. But that isn't a huge problem. Over all I think it's great.
Love the concept of the app! Although there is one major flaw in the app, and that is that some of the food items that come up when you search to add food to your diary have calorie counts that are WAY off. I now feel like I can't trust the information in this app. I think it would very worthwhile for the app developers to go through the food items already in the system and verify the calorie amounts recorded for them.
Hard to figure out logging meals at first. Eventually got used to it. Forced to buy full version to get any usable features if you need to focus on anything other than calories. Forced into ongoing subscription payments rather than a one time purchase. Therefore, the second a better option comes along, I'm gone!
