What's New in Version 3.8.3
• Bug fixes
21st century App
Several years back all tracking was done by paper. I can do and track everything with the I-Phone. In quick add I lost my meals & points, went around the house & scanned everything. My phone is always with me so I have no excuses. Any water, exercise or food I can add immediately and see where I stand real time. I use the shopping list in reverse. I've put a large list on and incrementally add as I go. Before I shop, I check the items I need, then uncheck as I pick them up. The exercise list has every activity under the sun and it's nice lists are alphabetical. It's a super great App and makes me accountable to me. When manually tracking I always had excuses, tracker was left home, oh I forgot my tracker (on vacations or long weekends away) or the biggest issue, trying to remember everything you ate & drank during the day so you would forget items and be short. The restaurant list with food points is fabulous, scanner phenomenal and I'm sure there are still things I'll discover as the weeks pass. I can say it boosts my confidence level by 90% and will give me a 75% better chance at being successful!
The scanner does not work and to fix it WW chat support says to delete it and reload which they tell me will lose all my scanned items and my recipes, more than 30 days worth of entries. I told them I didn't want to lose the information and they just "apologize for the inconvenience." I am writing this review, my first, because support mentioned a scanner app (it is really this app as when I click on WW scanner, same app I have now comes up) which got me app searching. I found an app called Pro Tracker Plus WW Watchers for $3.99 and one of the complaints was "sorry for the inconvenience" when the app lost their entered information after 2 years. I have only had the official weight watches app for one month @ $10 a month and to keep using it I will have to delete it, reload and lose all my information! They have also not answered my emails and their chat only answers some questions, ignores the rest. I'll probably not renew my WW contract when my three months are up when I can have the same type of app and attitude for $3.99. Or use Fitbit for free.
Still needs some fixes
I have used the app on and off for a couple years now. It was horrible before with the bugs and problems. Now it is at least usable. There are better weight loss apps out there, but I like the weight watcher program.
Recently I noticed that when I scan barcodes or am searching for certain items, initially the item is correct and gives me the points value when searching, but then when I go to track it, it changes to another item (things that are way more points mind you) for example I wanted to track diced ham from my omelette yesterday so I scanned Smithfield diced ham, it told me 2 ounces was 1 point, I go to track it and it changes to "panera" for one serving at 32 points!
