Love that this app integrates pretty well with Spark Recipes where I may choose an already-submitted recipe or input my own. Upgraded to the premium features to get even more analytics. I like the UPC scanner to add foods to my day easily. In general, great app but, unfortunately, can't find any way to correct some nutrient counts that are inaccurate (realize formulations sometime change, which may explain why some foods like GrapeNuts don't accurately show any iron even though package shows it is a significal source (90% of daily needs). User-contributed items in the database sometimes show incorrect nutrition counts in other areas, too, so ratings for accuracy would help to choose for the log the best entries. Would give this app 5 stars if there was a way to improve accuracy.
I have enjoyed this app very much. I appreciate the accountability the app provides. The people are encouraging and all the good that's stored makes it easy to keep track of what you eat and the calorie intake. It would be nice if it showed how much fruit and veggies one needs to eat. But other than that couldn't be happier! I've lost weight already.
I've tried a lot of calorie counting apps and sparkpeople's food directory is by far the best one out there. It's really easy to scan foods, find what you're looking for, and add a food item that's not already there. Very thorough and user friendly even if you've never used this kind of app before! Sparkpoints motivate you 👍 Edit (6/5/17): still LOVE this app! My only complaint is that going to the home screen is such a hit or miss now. Usually I have to press the back button which closes me out from the app altogether! Would love if the home page was easily accessible again!
Absolutely love Sparkpeople! Food tracker is very easy to use and you can scan upc labels of your food as well. Great motivation and a successful start to living healthy lifestyle and losing weight.. You have to do the work but with this app you can stay consistent so much easier!
The app started out very similar to the website. But recently there's been a change in the way the app works and it's making it extremely difficult function with the app. It's gotten buggy. It doesn't log things correctly and I'm constantly have to go in and change things. It's not logging my weight correctly either. Every time I log something I'm getting a pop-up ads. I didn't used to have that problem. You guys could fix it or I can just go somewhere else. You are not the only app in town.
Strike 1 takes data from user submissions not web sites..Strike 2 couldn't connect my Garmin band . Strike 3 can't see calories etc before selecting a user submission when searching for food item
