What's New in Version 3.7.1
Apple Watch: see your dashboard of remaining PointsPlus values, track from your Recently Added and Favorites lists, and use Siri to track foods and activities with your voice!
Squashed bugs: we fixed the tracking problems from Recently Added and Items I Created lists, we put back the missing Healthy Checks icons, and prevented the blank loading white screen.
I've been using the WW app for 3.5 months, after I tried it out for 2 wks on my daughter's account (to see if I could be honest!). I've lost 22 lbs, just keeping track with the points. I travel a lot, and this has really helped me hold the line on intake while I'm away. In conjunction, I've been using a digital scale to easily help measure quantities. It's been really interesting to note what foods are high in points and what aren't. I glut myself on fruit (would probably be losing faster than 1.5 lbs per week average if I didn't indulge so much), which satisfies my cravings to cram stuff into my mouth. It can be hairy when the updates come through, because the app probably won't work as well until they get the bugs out of the update. At this point, I have no desire to go on without the app. It's the perfect amount of 'nudge', and perfectly private. App and digital scale: that's my recommendation.
Five Stars with criticism
So I love this app. I lost 100 pounds using the app and attending weekly in-person meetings at WW several years ago, then re-gained 70# (trying not to track, etc). I went back to using the app and attending meeting a in December and as of today am down nearly 50# again and within 3 pounds of my Lifetime goal. I use the app several times a day and have tracked my weight regularly. My criticisms include two things. 1) there are flaws with the weight tracker on both the tablet and iPhone version. On the iPad The Y axis weights do not re-calibrate when switching from landscape to portrait mode. On the iPhone, the weight tracker will not allow me to scan back in time very far. 2) I wish there was a way to sign in at WW using my phone and automatically update my weight when I weigh in.
Great app if it worked all the time
This is my first time trying weight watchers and I must say that I am impressed. It is helping me be more conscious about what I eat and changing my lifestyle. The app goes along way in helping me make that change.
However, it doesn't appear to be all that stable. It is not uncommon that I have to delete and then re-download the app for it to work. Sometimes it won't record what I have tried to add to my food list for the day. Other times when I try to change the serving size, it will record the points as zero when I know for a fact that is not the case. If you are not diligent looking at what has been recorded, you can fool yourself into thinking that you have more points left in the day and over-eat. The only way to fix it once you've noticed it is to delete the app and then reload it... which is, to say the least, annoying.
