Great! Used this site and its older apps off and on for a couple years at least. Always helps when I actually use it! Love that this version reminds me to track food and that it makes it super easy to do so! My only complaint/feedback is that I can't connect to my LG Health step tracker, and Spark People doesn't have one of its own (I can't afford to buy one of those health tracker gadgets, so I just want my steps to count towards my exercise within Spark People's app). Overall a great app and very useful tool!
Update: OK, so either they added the feature or I was overlooking it (very possible), either way the developer contacted me and gave me step by step instructions on how to track my weight! I love this app even more! Excellent customer service and now I can have one app for everything! The only complaint I have is that I wish it also had a weight tracker. Unless I keep overlooking it, which is possible. This app is easy to use and I find that I am making better eating choices because I am held accountable. I love the options of support from other users as well! I am only 2 days in, but really like it so far.
I'm Giving it a Shot I have used Myfitnesspal to track for years, but lately I find the app crashing frequently. I searched for an alternative, and this was the highest rated app. I decided to give it a try. The interface is very user-friendly. I did ding one star, because I wish the food database was a bit more comprehensive. Right now I'm having to input a lot of nutrition data myself. With that said, once it's entered you have that item locked into your recently saved for quick access.
App is ok for tracking, looking for an article and posting a blog entry. There is zero group functionality, one of my favorite parts of SP. There is no way to read Spark mail; I haven't found a way to do trivia either. As a premium subscriber, I'm disappointed in these 2 features lacking. Also the option to modify the image at the top of the app I feel should be a given. ☆ Updated to include.....kudos to the development team for caring enough to respond to my review. I modified my review a little but leaving a 3 until group functionality exists in a robust capacity.
Great for simple weight loss I was looking for an app that will log my calories, exercise and let me know how much I need to eat to lose weight. Its been a week and I successfully lost 3 lbs. I eat a little less than logged due to sharing food with my daughter. So the 2lbs a week is going great!
So far so good but while entering my breakfast I noticed I can't enter the correct amount of servings, it's all measured by cups. Instead of entering 1 scoop of plain greek yogurt it says 1 cup. Also while entering my exercises it doesn't allow me to enter the exact time it's just by minutes. Maybe an adjustment is in order? Otherwise it would be 5 starts and I could also get rid of a couple of apps as this would do it all for me. If you could go ahead and make those changes that would awesome, thank you!!!
Madonna was right: we are living in a material world. Starting with this version, we've brought Material Design to SparkPeople Mobile. Simplified, easier-to-use, and more intuitive, we think you'll love the new layout. Also Premium members can now download all their health and fitness data into a spreadsheet with a few clicks. If you dig data, you'll dig this release!
Stay in control and make smart and satisfying food choices anytime & anywhere.
