Ratings and Reviews
Good for food tracking beginners
The food search bank in the app is more limited than other apps, so I have recently switched back to one I’ve used before. The to-do list is a nice feature but I think it could be improved upon to be more user-friendly.
Food journals, water, weight and measurement logs are a dime a dozen in the health-related app world, but this is designed especially for those in the Bariatric surgery world. For that, I like that it’s Bari-oriented - keeps a count of my post-op time and weight loss from that date, ability to set up support chat groups and also order Bari-related supplies from the app which is very handy. I found it more useful in the weeks before and month or so after my surgery.
I honestly got sick of it constantly asking me to review it - I don’t like when apps get needy. I hope that submitting this review will end the nagging, although I’ve mostly moved on.
I have been using this for 14 days now and it is incredibly useful. I am an old school write on paper kind of person but have been making myself use this every day. Yes there are some fixes that could make entering things easier but this is a free app so I don't complain. I think that the developers will make adjustments they just need to know what they are. Coming out of VSG surgery there were many people and apps that try and help you through your journey, this one is a good one. You have to find what works for you. My journal entries have allowed me to post my BP and vitamins/medications in an easy format that my primary care Dr. and surgeon could read easily with a swipe of the screen versus having to go through a paper journal book. Thank you!
It’s actually pretty good (compared to similar apps)
I’ve used other similar apps before to track my nutritional intake, and this app is by far one of my favorites the dates. The seamless implementation of voice to text to capture our meals into register them in the app, makes the experience of using this app very pleasant. In addition, there are a ton of other features to discover.
The only small complaint I have is that every time I enter an item for dinner for example, after I am done entering the item, it forces me to scroll down and find the dinner tab after each entry is entered. This is a small annoyance, but nothing to take away from the overall satisfaction with this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
