Ratings and Reviews
Great app, only tiny improvements needed
Great app. Everything you wish your home spreadsheet did with pretty colors and 10,000x less effort. Makes it easy to track food quantities. Some people have complained that it doesn’t show summary totals in grams, just percentages—but you can just go to the apple health app to see that over time, which is really great. I wouldn’t change the interface on this app. Wish the health app could also display the DV you set in this app for comparison on those charts.
A couple of extra nutrients like omega 3s, maybe biotin, would be great. Splitting hairs but I’d love to see folate breakdown for fortified folic acid foods and natural food folate.
Also, I don’t see a way to retroactively add a journal entry. You can move entries from the current day to a previous day that you did at least one entry for, but if you didn’t do any entries yesterday there’s no way to do it retroactively. That would be a helpful feature for those days that get away from you...in the meantime, I guess I just have to stay on top of things!
Simple and Accurate
Some time after using this app, I've realized it frequently miscalculated percentages of nutrients. The app is basically useless if it tells me I'm getting 0% of a vitamin when I'm actually getting 50%.
This app is very impressive and has a great, intuitive, user friendly platform. The food items are quite generic and there are some missing (like bok choy), which is a bummer, but the data seems accurate which is important for me (I see that it comes from the USDA). It competes with MyFitnessPal. However, it would be GREAT if it broke down protein, fat, and carb percentages per day. And it would be nice if it included omega-3 which is critical. Lastly, I'd like to be able to go back and change food items for a previous date. I want to reiterate that the food items are very generic so MyFitnessPal has a leg up because of that--however, I prefer quality of accuracy over quantity of items. Anyway, thanks a lot for a great and useful app!
I'm updating this review to say that I've noticed that sometimes the nutrients don't add up properly, which is very frustrating. Sometimes I add a food and the values become lower. Especially with vitamin B5. It's important for me because I'm fighting allergies. Could you please fix that? Thanks again!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review. I would invite you to try the latest update. The issues you mentioned have been fixed and the new version has nearly 200,000 searchable foods.
Good Idea, Poor execution
There are a lot of requests to see the grams rather than % on journal. Keep color bar to determine percentage, and replace # with mg.
I filled out the RDA for the AA in my profile, but it doesn’t show on the journal.
Allow a user to enter their weight + daily calorie intake and calculate RDA, allowing for adjustments by the user.
When entering my protein/carb/fat daily requirements, it should show the calorie calculation at the top. It’s simple math, but I had to go to another app to do this.
The layout is awkward, but works well enough. Hire a UI team.
Add instructions. I didn’t know how to enter MY needs, calories. Also had to look up RDA on another app for my weight and age. AA have zero for default. Why?
I don’t care about any of the other features so I haven’t used them nor plan to. Copy meals from another date is useful, since people tend to eat the same things over a week.
Keep it up. It seems almost meeting the need MFP is lacking. But their UI and functionality is better. If they added minerals Vitamins and AA today, Id switch back due to the ease of use. Beat them to it, please. And I’ll stay loyal and pay for updates.
