What's New in Version 1.1
Read the reviews and none seemed good. Decided to go ahead and get the app since it was free. I am loving it so far. It does what I want; enter my fitness and food intake for each day. I know I will like it for when I am on the road and only have my iPad available for doing my data updates. It keeps me accountable for each day's fitness and food choices. One bad review was that you could not enter a 1/4 or .25 for a food choice. I added a zero in front of the decimal point and it worked. Figured that out on my first try. I see nothing wrong with it so far and am excited to use this app on the road. Reviewed February 4, 2015. The only complaint I have is this is the second time I wrote a review, the first one deleted itself when my user name was taken......that is upsetting. Great app, love it.
Buggy app--don't spent the cash
Strongly recommend getting the iPhone version for your iPad. You cannot put in decimals or fractions for servings on the iPad version. You cannot enter 3/4 of a cup or .75 cups of items. This means that you either ate one or two cups of rice. 1.5 is not possible. I am a veteran SparkPerson, so I want to like it. This app actually just stinks. It's buggy in many other ways, too. You can't cancel out of a food choice--you must add it and then delete. It also does not have a loading sign as it communicates with the site so it just stops working for a bit with no warning. Well--it is prettier than the iPhone version and you can access the water more easily--but that's it. No advantages--just loss of functionality as compared to iPhone version.
Not like the iPhone app
I have the iPhone app and like the ease of access, however, the iPad app is the bare basics I feel. I would love to see more access to fitness videos or workouts, top stories, more motivational info. I use my iPad as my trainer when I work out at home so I don't have to print off a bunch of workouts elsewhere and have them all over the house. When I use my phone, it's just too small to really be able to see the correct moves. Better access to things like that would make this a much better app. Plus, adding some more excitement to it would be fun!
