For the Money this is a good app
I like the interface; but if you use this app you will have to, in many cases, use the Nutritional Info on the food package to calculate the calories consumed. You only have to do this once and manually save it. This app has as a favorite section for this. As to activities, you’ll need to customize this section to fit your workouts.
This app is terrible
I would return it if i could
I don’t like the new interface
Version 2 has some improvements (larger database, shows percentages, weight progression graphs, etc) but I find the interface difficult to navigate. Also, imputing the foods is not very straight forward and there are some bugs that need fixing
this app has no data in it; you might as well use paper and pencil and save yourself the $
Calorie Counting Made Tedious
I've done calorie counting on my own using spreadsheets formatted to calculate cumulative percentages of macronutrients by calorie (protiens, carbs, fats). This app is doesn't give you a percentage but a total in grams of macronutrients--kind of useless information, and you have to get on a calculator to get the information that is really useful. If you don't care about that and just want a running tally of your calories, it's fairly decent….but again, it doesn't do anything a spreadsheet couldn't and I find spreadsheets are much easier to use. For example, this app doesn't allow you to copy meals from other days when you have the same meal more than once. You have to enter it manually over and over again. The food database is also kind of lame and there aren't enough options for portion sizes. Again, it measures in grams (for example, one hardboiled egg can be selected in either grams or cup size). I would prefer if they gave an option for ounces, which I'm used to, or estimates according to an average portion size (such as "large egg," "medium egg," etc.) Overall, I found this app annoying to use and lacking in features and options that should have been really easy to add. Instead of this, I suggest using calorieking.com for calorie amounts (they give more options for portion sizes and include percentages of macronutrient ratios by calorie) and entering into a spread sheet. This way you can copy and paste meals when you repeat them, and come up with some neat graphs on your calorie consumption and weight loss.
