What's New in Version 1.1
-Sorting added to Menu Item browsing
-General bug fixing
Yes, it counts calories. But I don't know the serving size of anything. I count Hershey Kissies by the piece. This wants to know how many servings I ate. 9 pieces per serving, I ate 4, no way to accurately divide. I eat 7 left over, take out, chicken wings. How many portions us that? And you cannot get that far until you decode the "official" name of the product - buffalo wings. Had some peanut butter on my apple slices. Overestimated the amount of peanut butter, now I cannot go back and edit down my snack size. No ability to do a "what if?" So if I have two snack choices, I cannot see the calorie count before I make a decision.
Keeping a food log is not easy on paper. They writers have done a terrific job including (seemingly) all the choices from so many restaurants and groceries. This can make keeping a log easier to do. And provides instant gratification on seeing where you are on your daily goals. I especially like seeing my calorie credits show up after I exercise.
This review was written after less than one day of use.
Outstanding concept (mobile version of the restaurant book) but fails in execution. First, there is only a limited number of even the most popular chains available to view. The menus for the restaurants that are represented are outdated. Many have added, removed or completely changed items in there menu but the app has not been updated in a long time. When I upgraded my phone to iOS 6.1 it doesn't work at all. The app will load but the screen is blank when you try to look at menus. I would say its only temporary until they update the app, but it seems they don't update the app (yet still charge $5 for it). Don't waste your money unless Mens Health starts really trying to make an effort for their customers with this app. Instead, your better off devoting your money to the print version of the book.
Big improvements needed
This app really leaves a lot to be desired. On the calorie tracker, there is no way to edit if you make a mistake. As an example, I typed in "baby carrots". Then I put in 10 medium and click done. I don't know,but in my world 10 medium baby carrots don't have 3500 calories and once it's in your tracker there is no way to remove it or edit it. Also if you search for a product that has many flavores or variations, such as Coffee Mate, it brings up all the different variations of coffee mate, but each entry just says coffee mate. You have to tap on each entry to see what flavor, if it's sugar free or fat free etc. The app does this with any product that has several flavors or variations. I would recommend the "Nutrition" app over this one for calorie tracking and looking up foods.
