I like the simple, easy-to-use layout. I like the thoughtful questions for each meal/snack and that you can customize them. The only thing I would change is the stats section. For example, when I check hungry stats, the different answers are labeled with numbers. I don't know which number represents which answer. I would also prefer a more wheel style representation of the stats rather than the bar graph. I think it looks nicer and easier to understand that way.

Great app! I would love to see options for organizing the layout of certain options (the order of the list of emotions for example). I would also really like to see an option to add snacks. Right now the only option is to add a meal so if you have a snack outside of mealtime it gets counted as a full meal.

Thank you for the review! Having one way to track everything just makes it easier. It does make sense to have an option to tag meals as snacks so we will consider adding that in. Customizing the order of options is something that we could add. If you have something specific you want to see please email us at

Edit: Ugh I left a 5 star review originally because the app is simple and does what I want, but literally 2 days later it said I "ran out of meals" for the free version. I'd totally pay a few bucks one time to keep using this, but a 5 dollar a month subscription model? Absolutely not. Previous review: I don't rate apps often, but this one does just want I want. Thank you!

Thanks for the review. A subscription is necessary because of the cost of servers as well as supporting future updates and improvements to the app. As a small app developer, this is the only way that the app can exist.
