This app is terrible.

The functionality of the app is not good because it doesn't allow you to remain on the same page after choosing certain options and I am sick of having to start again with the app from the main menu every time I open it up to put it syns!

The food directory in my opinion linked with this app, seems very limited and some of the syn values are not correct. I find myself having to trawl through forums to find the information after trying on the app, because it doesn't recognise some well known brands.

When I'm on the go I find this app a nightmare to be honest. I can find the basics but I get exhausted with restarting the app and then also not being able to look back on my syns from previous days. I also can't keep a food diary and think that a daily diary would really benefit this app and it's users. It should give you option to choose what type of day you are having e.g. Extra Easy, and then fill in your hex A and B choice (from food directory) record free and super free foods under those headings (also from food directory!) and then the syns at the bottom with the facility to search the food directory yet again (which should be more up to date!)

If slimming world values itself as an equivalent or even, a more reputable brand than weight watchers, then they need to update the app and make the general functionality and accessibility more superior in comparison! WW app seems far more useful and straight forward!

Disappointed to say the least.

Very disappointing

I have just started S.W & was excited that they had an app, well what a let down😞 I was hoping that I'd be able to keep track of my weight, but no & the Syn tracker is a waste of time as a 'tracker', when I was inputting my syns I wasn't sure if it had added it or not & pressed the button several times before I realised it had & then it showed me just how many times I had added the same food (whoops) it allowed me to take 1 of them off & that was it, I can't get back in to amend anything, so now my syns are going to look horrendous for today & I will have no idea how many I have had.
There is also no exercise section, I would like to see a section where I can input how much exercise I have done & what type.
Until SW have updated this app, to be honest I really don't see the point of using it 😞and with SW trying to break into the American market they really need to pull their socks up where this app is concerned, the Americans would laugh their socks off at this app.
So come on SW you've seen all the negative reviews, PLEASE do something about it.


Having recently joined Slimming World, I found the idea of an app for when I'm out and about a great idea.

Although this app could do with improvement... I'd love an improved calculator that highlighted exactly what category foods fell in to (super free/ healthy extra etc) rather than just syns. I feel like the app should be good enough to stop me having to refer to the books all the time.


Also, would be better if the app took each individuals profile in to account. I'm vegetarian, so obviously I follow the green options, would be more useful if the featured recipes on my app were tailored to this or even if it gave you the option to choose, as currently they are all meat/fish.

Also... Would love a proper food diary included to keep track of what I'm eating in one place, accessible on the go.

At the moment only a 2/3 star app. Has potential to become a brilliant aid to weight loss.
