The only negative I find is that some foods I search for can't be found, but when I use the scanner the food is there a lot of times. It would be nice to be able to pull that food up the first time! It is food that has been entered by someone else. At least I can eventually find it without entering it myself, but if it is there already......why not make it so I can use it without all the extra steps?
So easy to use, and very effective!! Weight just drops off even though I'm never hungry. The app has taught me HOW to eat healthy and enlightened me on foods/dishes that I had believed to be healthy but weren't. This app is also perfect for those of us that do not have local meetings available.
While the basics of the program are great the app leaves a lot to be desired. The food database is pretty poor and you often need to add a custom food. I would also love to see some integration between apps like my fitness Pal with a far better database and provides a deeper nutritional information to go with the smart points
EDIT: The app has improved since I last wrote this, it is fairly useful now. WHAT THE HECK? This used to be the best way to log my food. Now you have ruined it just like the web app. I may just quit WW. Weight Watchers has enabled me to lose 70 lbs and keep it off for over a year. The Mobile App is a key reason. The last update added multiple Favorite item selection, which speeds up the entry quite a bit. The user community requested that feature and WW responded. They also made editing a lot easier. Well worth the price for the service and the app is the main reason.
The app makes it easy to track your eating. On day one I discovered why I kept gaining weight. I had eaten enough at dinner to cover a whole day! That little fact motivated me to do something. Lost 6 pounds in my first week. Your results may vary.
Points tracking and fitbit sync are great. The coaching selection functionality doesn't allow me to filter since the latest update. The connect feed benefits the users with lots of followers, but doesn't make it easy to connect with people who have common goals and challenges unless you spend hours scrolling through everyone's posts. Would be nice to filter users by weight loss goals, location, etc.
Bug fixes and ongoing improvements.
