Fantastic for fitness and diet recording
This is a really simple to use but effective application to keep track of calories eaten and calories burned each day.
The database doesn't always have the specific food you need to record so you have to enter it manually but as long as you have the packaging handy it doesn't take very long. If you have a certain food regularly you can save it as a favourite and select it from the star menu to save time. It keeps a record of fat, carbs and protein so you can check you are staying within your daily limits. You can set the calories in your goal so you don't exceed what you wish to stay under and it also shows you how many you have used when exercising. Previous reviewers have given low ratings because the database doesn't have all the makes of food but you can't expect it to have everything so have to be willing to spend a few mins entering the details. Also the cycling at 10mph or 20mph…does it really matter about it not being specific? It is just a general guide to use to diet and get fit otherwise you would have to spend ages and it would become too complicated. Excellent program. Not too complicated like some and it works!
I was initially enthusiastic about this app as it seemed to have a nice simple interface. On first use however I discovered that the data entry - selecting foods from the database - is rather clunky - the ‘100g’ measure of the selected food item advertises itself as a drop-down, but seems to be a fixed value, so that you change the value using the ‘multiplier’ factor - not very convenient. There were other usability niggles. Aside from the clunky interface, the first time I entered a meal’s details the app recorded an item twice, when I deleted one occurence the remaining values were wrong. This is not a good first impression, and I doubt I shall use the app again. It seems to me like it has not had sufficient testing before release. I’m surprised that it remains so buggy and clunky at release 3.1!
This doesn't really seem to do any more than I could do with a spreadsheet. There is a database of nutritional values for a big list of foods but I couldn't find UK foods on the list, even simple stuff like skimmed milk. I therefore had to do the research myself. The ability to record 'favourites' works well. I'm not sure I trust the energy (calorie) information for exercise, it seems very high. Cycling appears as two options 'CYCLING LESS THAN 10mph' and 'CYCLING MORE THAN 20mph'. What about those of us who average speeds between 10 and 20mph? Maybe I'm missing something.
