Great program! Just needs more tweeking.

mother to a 10 & 6 year old PKU kids

I received an Ipod Touch for mothers day specfically for this app. We have 2 children w/ pku. I like the fact that I can add my favorite items because the USDA #'s are not equal to the "Food List" that we all have from Virginia Schuett. So, I add my own and put them under the catagory Favorite w/ her #'s. Once you get use to the menu system of the program it is nice to be able to enter the data right there, such as at a table in a restraunt. My 10yr old son is going to start being more responsible for tracking his phe intake and start making better food choices. My biggest wish is to have the ability to track more than one child. I need that desparately. For years I have been using the program "PKULife". Great program!! Tracked 2 children. Downside, it was PC based. This app on an Iphone can go anywhere. Summer camp, vacations, etc. Just need the ability to track more than one child.

Good App, Still Buggy

I am 32 years old and have pku and I am also on Kuvan. This app makes my life easier because now I have a quick way to record what I eat and track my protein intake. And is also makes it very easy to export my diet records to email and send to my nutritionist. However, with the new 2.0 version, it has added some much needed features, for example, being able to go back to the previous day and edit a diet record. There still are a few more bugs though. The most annoying are:

1. When browsing the database for a food and then needing to add it to the current category: The category and sub category fields used to be automatically filled in, that is no longer the case. Which is frustrating because sometimes I have to back out to remember where I was.

2. When accessing the "Favorites" list, takes an extremely long time for the list to pull up. This wasn't the case with the previous version.

3. Also, once logging something from the favorites list and then going back is delayed.

4. App crashes unexpectedly. Not sure what causes the crash, because I am doing different things within the app when it happens.

All in all, this is still the most convenient way for me to log my foods. Just needs little more work.

Slow Start...but so impressed

I have had this app since they released it. I was origionally very disappointed with the app. I think that is why their has been mixed reviews. In the past, I would enter a recipe and would not be able to delete it. Also it was very confusing! I will tell you Cambrook took our suggestions and implemented them into the app. It takes a bit to get use to the navigation but nothing you shouldn't be able to figure it out in one sitting. I love the option to be able to send an excel sheet to my nutritionist! I am a PKU that has been working on getting back on diet and I believe this is my missing link! Finally their is a diet app just for PKU! Thank you Cambrook!
