What's New in Version 5.6.0
Thanks for using Weight Watchers! We've made some updates and bug fixes to give you the best experience possible. As new features become available, we'll be sure to highlight them here.
The App is improving. It's much better than it was three months ago.
The problem is features of the new Weight Watcher program taken together with omissions in the new App. The new program takes a more realistic and science-based approach to sugar and calories, but the new App no longer encourages participants to be sure each day to consume a multi-vitamin, three healthy oils, three dairy products, eight to ten glasses of water, whole grain products, etc. Given the high point count for olive oil, milk, cereals and bread, the absence of the healthy practices page in the App discourages drinking water and eating these foods; if it's all about points determined by calories, then plan participants will avoid healthy oils, dairy products and other healthy foods that are high-point choices, and the App doesn't encourage recording adequate hydration.
The other omission is the excellent "men's tools" pages, with articles and videos on exercise and advice directed to men, that were in use until the end of 2015. I assume this means that management has given up on getting men more active in the program. However, I do not understand why it saves the company money to omit the links, videos, and articles already developed, which should be as usable today as they were five years ago. Management might not ever achieve the goals for men it set for itself years ago, but getting rid of the Men's Tools pages will decrease the number of men who are customers.
Update: I wanted to commence a 3rd year with WW by resubscribing through the app. Worked last year but not this! WW said they were being helpful but that they really had nothing to do with the working of the app. iTunes says they will reimburse me but I should contact the WW webmaster. Why bother--I've already worked with a half dozen account people. The frustration led to much snacking. Update: I love the ww app. 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.
Loving the app & the program!!
I just signed up this past Sunday and the program is definitely working for me.😁 Like anything, it works if ya work it. As for the app, totally loving it and it makes the program so much simpler than the old way. When I belonged years ago, before they switched to SmartPoints, I don't think there was an app and cell phones weren't as advanced. This new way changes the game. Tracking food is a breeze. I love the weight & fitness tracker too and that u can sync ur device w/ it. I like the Fav's list but I'd like to see an app update that gives that function the ability to check off several Fav's at a time vs one by one. I understand why they have it the current way, so u can change the serving size & choose which meal type to track it under. But i think they can tweak it a smidge to choose the meal type first n then check "boxes" within ur Fav's list for that meal (lunch for example). & from there u could change the items serving sizes, if necessary. All in all, I'm happy with it.
