Ratings and Reviews

basics covered


I find this app easier to understand only after using other fitness tracking app but wanting to remove the bloat. Im not interested in friends joining me in what my body feels like through diet so a simple scan and track app is useful for me.

Flexible, minimalist diet tracker


I feel like I've tried every diet tracking app out there. This is by far the best. Minimal (no crap, no ads, no pop-ups or other useless junk) and totally flexible. I have different macro goals every day and can change it on the fly if necessary (like if I don't make it to the gym after all). I can track things without adding them to the library. Recipes are handled perfectly and easily. You can share meals between Joy users (crucial in my house) or even send links to meal info to non-Joy users. The food library is accurate. I LOVE the "quick meal" feature, where you can add calories to your day without adding the food to the actual library. I can't think of a single thing I wish it would do that it doesn't do, except sync with Fitbit. That doesn't really matter much though - I just keep track of calories burned in Fitbit and calories eaten in Joy.

Better (and cheaper) than MyFitnessPal

Simple, powerful app without all the social and advertising BS of MFP. I've lost 10 pounds of fat and gained around 6 pounds of muscle using this app. It's easy to store recipes and calorie goals. The templates are fantastic. You can get as detailed as you want with your macros or just use it to count calories. They have all of the foods that MFP has. I've only had to add one food over the last month (it was a weird pasta from one of those health food stores)and it was simple, plug-n-play off the nutrition info. Stuff from Trader Joe's is all there. After the 30-day trial I was hooked and had to get the monthly subscription. At 1/5th the price of MFP this is a no brained.
