Love this app... Hating update The new update looks great but I can not longer see my friends food diary. I can see what they have logged for exercise but not food. Please fix this! I help my workout partner stay in track and it was easier to check before with the old version. Thanks!!
Keeps you focused Been using this for 2 weeks, gone from 14st 7 to 14st. It really helps keep you focused. I am amazed by how many foods and brands it has stored. Ads are not a problem. UPDATE now 12 weeks in and 12st 8, I can't believe how easy it has been. I am now just 1lb off not being classed as overweight anymore :-)
"Zero calories" for strength training? Other than the fact that strength training - doing 90 curls with 35 pounds for example - reads as "zero calories burned - for whatever reason, its a great program for counting calories. Obviously doing 90 curls burns calories so - if a developer is reading this, please go handle your boss on his or her personal need to invalidate strength training as not burning calories. Its weird.
New update is terrible I've found a number flaws. First, no matter what I enter for calories and exercise it tells me I will weigh 143 lbs in 5 weeks. Seems stuck on that number. Second, it doesn't seem to sync exercise between my rwo android devices. Third, it really needs an Add button on the home page. This app used to be much better.
Effective I have used this app for the past 9 months and lost approximately 70 lbs doing so. Really helps to keep track of calories, daily weight, macros and so on. The paid version is too expensive for my preference but I do appreciate that they have more features available.
Aggravated Since the update I haven't been able to search new foods to put into my diary. I can't keep track of my food now. It's constantly telling me network can't be accessed. I had this rated 5 stars because it really helped me and was really accurate, I had lost quite a few lbs. I would like to keep using this app and give it a 5 star rating again, but will not do so until this app is fixed. It was perfect the way it was before the update.
