I enjoy using the app but find it most enjoying that it only works in portrait mode. I use it most often in my iPad which is set up in landscape mode using a case with a keyboard. This requires me to dismantle and then reassemble the iPad each time I wish to make an entry. Most similar apps operate in both modes. Can the developer please make this update. ANF99New Zealand
This is an easy app to use. Has most foods in the good bank. Keeps you on track and really motivated.
Mastered it in 5-10min.. so easy to use. All my friends are starting to use it!! Ak, NZ
It’s as if no one east anything that isn’t branded. Good if you’re an Aussie, not so good for kiwis.
