This is one of my favorite calorie trackers. It is easy-to-use and very intuitive. I just found out a new thing about it last night while a passenger in a car. I forgot my phone (Internet hotspot) at home so was offline. This was the only app that worked. I was ready to dump the remaining two right then and there but this one lacks one thing that is in the “Cons” below.
- Very easy-to-use with an intuitive interface
- Meals are already split up so you can easily get the right food in the correct meal
- You can copy full meals to another day which is great for those same meals you eat a lot
- It has a very large database of foods
- It shows your most recent foods
- Instead of having a “Favorites” section it keeps track of most used foods
- It can take recipes
- It has a barcode scanner and it’s the first one I got to work but it wasn’t easy, although I was holding both the iPad and the bag I was trying to scan. Maybe if I had set it down on a flat surface it would have worked better.
- Only app I kept that works offline
- Once you’re finished for the day you click a button & it tells you what you might weigh in 5 weeks if you ate this way every day. Probably not accurate but a fun feature.
- Has a nice “daily totals” section which adds your activity calories to what is left – the only app that does that out of the others I’ve tried. The others show activity calories but they don’t add them to your total consumable calories. I’ve learned that I lose best when I eat everything coming to me in my range.
- Not very colorful or fun looking on the actual food addition page – home page is a bit more interesting
- I would rather have an alphabetical “Favorites” list instead of a most used list that is not in alphabetical order – if it wasn’t set up with this one thing I would immediately dump the others – I don’t know who thought this was better!
