Just for the description I downloaded this just because I loved the description. After having used the app, I can say it might have been nice to input height the way it is printed on my drivers license. However basic math isn't beyond me. Anyone that wants it to take into consideration Race, Age, Gender and etc doesn't seem to understand that won't change the BMI score. Wether you are overweight or not is determined by those charts. If you have a real interest in your weight and health you should know what a healthy BMI is.
Does what it says - interface could be improved 5*s to balance out the idiots (dev - u r my hero lol) but I think 4 stars would be pretty realistic for this app. While I agree that people should think about what they're doing before they downrate, a few tweaks to the app would probably help the mentally underwhelming along. For example, it might be good to restate the details as a result, like "You Entered 200 lbs as your weight and 6 feet 2 inches as your height." A toggle on the main screen for Imperial <-> Metric might also help. Overall a good 1.
Great app, great rant! 5 stars for both! This is probably in the comments, and partly ranted about already :), but to make it perfect, would be nice to have separate boxes for feet and inches, and not have to go through the menu to switch between metric and imperial. PS total sympathy for your BMI rant because I have bodybuilder types feeling they need to tell me how useless they think BMI is every effing week!
Amazing! This does exactly what I want it for! It calculates the BMI, and it explains, which category the resulting BMI falls into. The results are accurate and correct, which puts this app clearly above average. Up to now I've had to choose between using bulky apps with loads of useless extra features, or calculating the BMI with a normal calculator. This app is nice, small and simple!
Excellent small ad-free app This is a nice small app that tells you your bmi for an average adult. Unlike many free small apps it doesn't have ads, so great if using it abroad. I knew about BMI when I installed it (I was starting out on weight loss my BMI was 39.8), it is an aid and people should read up more on it and other measurements to use (my BMI is now 27). This app does what it says on the tin, it's small, free, and ad-free. What more do people want!
Works perfectly Does exactly what it claims. Anyone slating this clearly doesn't understand what BMI is. Yeah it's not that good an indication of fitness (being based solely on weight and height) as it will show a lot of sportsman as overweight, but that's the fault of the equation, not the dev. For an 'average joe' it will be pretty accurate.
