    I like this app for better understanding of the foods I choose to eat. It gelps me with those choices and with portions. I recommend this app.
  • Best App For Tracking Nutrition IMO

    I have tried multiple other apps for tracking calories and this one is my favorite, hands down. The very simple search interface allows you to find the ENTIRE nutritional profile of an exact portion of food including total calories, total protein, fat, carbs, vitamins, and minerals. On top of that, you can add individual food items or even ENTIRE CUSTOM RECIPES to "your journal" which then keeps track of how much you have eaten for the day. Very happy I purchased this.

    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%. Earlier review: 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!
  • Not for home cooks

    As a home cook, I'm disappointed in this app. Its food journal feature will let you choose between any number of commercially available, processed foods (i.e. Digiorno's pizza), but won't let you select basic ingredients that go into a home cooked recipe (i.e. pizza dough). I'm confused about this because presumably people who want to keep track of their nutrition are not the top consumers of processed foods like Digiorno's pizza? Also, the app seems really unscientific to me because it tells me how much of my recommended protein intake I've achieved per day without having ever asked me about my weight. My understanding is that your recommended daily value of protein is directly tied to how much you weigh so this feels sketchy to me. Would not recommend.
  • Amazing! - All data is offline and instant!

    This is exactly what you need if you want a no frills app with all the USDA data for nutrition. It is like self.com, but all offline and inatant. Can't rate it highly enough!
  • Very disappointing. Could be 5-star but...

    By Alaska Lulu
    1st) There was no way to trial the app without paying first. I purchased it based off of reviews but, I would have liked to have a trial option first, but I gambled anyway, and lost... 2nd) Once I had the app, I was very surprised to find no systems or account setting or about the app, or any introduction on its intention, purpose and the best way to use it. So I was left just to use intuition. And this is what I discovered from that… 3rd) it seems to be fine if you just want to look up an average item such as an apple and get detailed information on it. However if you really want to track and customize, this app won't do it. It will send all the information from your journal to apple Health where you can see the running balance of stats. That's OK that its not internal, but... 4th) the biggest issue comes with the fact that you cannot add items that don't exist in their database, such as the protein powder and almond milk that I drink in the morning. Neither are in the database. So, I tried to create it as a recipe, but if ingredients aren't and the general database you cannot add it. And you can't just simply add nutritional info from the label either. 5th) This app would go from a 1-star to a 2-star if they could just simply provide a welcome intro page that gives an overview of their mission and the best way to use their app; from a 2-star to a 3-star if you could trial test before purchase, and... 6th) it would go from a 3-star to a 5-star instantly if they could allow you to add in your own items in detail if they don't have it specifically in their database (such as creating a new item by manually inputting info from label and or activating a reliable bar code scanner) But as it stands, its a waste of my money. I was looking for something to be better than MyFitnessPal at customizing/saving AND have detailed micro-nutrient data. So far I'm still searching.

    Great app for nutritional information.
  • Want to add items

    By Octocroco
    I think Centrum Multivitamins should be listed so can be added to the Journal to know that those vitamins have been taken. I do not see a way to add it myself.
  • Great app for whole foods

    By 40s getting fit
    I have been using this app for years and I rely on it more than my other nutritional trackers. The info is robust and accurate, the list of whole foods is great! I would like to add my supplements, but I am forced to use another app for that feature & refer to the tally in the health app. Still, overall an excellent app!
