Love it

I love using fatsecret. The diary and logs and support from other users is excellent and so helpful in my weightless journey. Love the fact that you can set your own macros and calories or have it calculated for you. Tracking is mostly easy and the library of foods is extensive. That being said I noticed sometimes, not all the time, they are a little off. For example my protein I use has 3 grams sugar and when I scan the barcode the app says 0 sugar. So for people who are needing to be exact on their counts you need to just double check that they have it correctly in the system. Also, when you get notifications that someone has responded to your diary log you have to go through some steps to get to the exact message. I wish the notification center would take you directly to the message for easy reply or viewing. Only other complaint is that you have to use the online version to change your profile picture and get access to certain features but that isn't a deal breaker for me. The app does everything you need it to. Other than that I love this app and will continue using it.


Comprehensive weight loss app that's easy to use!

This is the best weight loss app ever. I have used a few others but they do not compare. You can customize what you want to track, whether carbs, protein, fat etc. It also gives you the full nutritional breakdown of your meals, including salt and cholesterol percentages which is awesome. The recipes are fantastic and you can even participate in community conversations with fellow app users for those that want support. Adding food/recognizing label codes are super easy to do. My 5 stars are more like 4.5 stars. I took off half a star because a few times the barcode reader can be a bit off when scanning items. exp...The label may say 10 carbs or calories etc, but what is registered may be a higher or lower number. So at the end of the day your total count may be off by a few digits. Not sure if it is the fault of the app or the barcode. Either way, it is a mild nuisance that doesn't occur often enough to be problematic. With that being said, the app is awesome and I 100% recommend it.

Good, but...

I have been using the app for two weeks now, primarily the diet diary function. I appreciate the wide variety of options when I search for a particular food. However, the app freezes while I'm searching and adding foods during almost every meal entry. Any items that I have "saved" are lost. I have to fully close the app, re-open, and re-enter lost items for that meal. It's frustrating. Also, I took off a star of the horrible, tacky name "FatSecret". What kind of name is that? Is the app calling users fat? Is the app a secret cure to fatness? It sounds unprofessional.
Finally, there are issues with the customized daily caloric intake. In settings, I altered the standard 2000 calorie preset. But, the diary homepage does not register the change unless I go into settings and then navigate back to the diary. To be clear, the customized caloric intake shows on the settings page, but the diary does not get the message unless I navigate to settings and back. I have to do that every. single. time. I'm using the free version, but it's a low blow to make the free version buggy just so I'm tempted to pay for the subscription.

Developer Response

Hi maria,

If I understand your first point correctly, it's that your recently eaten foods are not being populated? We had a defect in that part of the app which was fixed for 8.0.2 - if you update to that version it should correct the issue.

We will investigate the issue with the RDI edits not updating to the diary. Thank you for pointing this out. In the meantime can you send us an email to and let us know which version of iOS you are using, and the model of iphone you have (mark it to my attention).

For what it's worth, we don't intentionally make the free version buggy to encourage people to upgrade. There's just a lot of really old code in there that has degraded over time (we're always working to improve it, we just don't have a big team so can't always fix everything).
