Yes I love it 5/5
This app has been a life saver, a food saver and most of all......thank you for making it affordable for everyone. I wish you great success in your efforts. Keep up the great work!
Love it 5/5
I really liked one of the old WW programs and was disappointed when they quit supporting it. With this app I can follow the program I want and still have support of people that are on the same program.
Awesome just a couple things 4/5
This app is amazing and I never feel deprived! I’ve lost 12.4 pounds in a course of 6 weeks so far (without exercise but will start up a routine as soon as I’m over my sickness). This has been the only thing I’ve actually been able to stick with and not fail! Ok so a couple things imo that need to be tweaked (I’m not complaining just a little friendly advice 😊)
1.) Editing your comments-
When u post a comment u can’t go back and fix it so u have to post a whole new comment.
2.) Favorites/Recently Tracked Items-
Sometimes a few of my favorites and/or recently tracked items disappear and I have to re log them again. Could u make an option to make it so u can choose to keep recently tracked items unlimited so it saves everything? Or maybe u can do like up to 20 items, 50 items unlimited etc? (I’m sorry if this doesn’t make sense lol)
Money, money, money 2/5
This app is a great way to track food, but it seems to want to take your money. Despite the fact that it’s a paid app, there is a little moving ribbon set over some of the buttons to get you to buy their stuff.
Despite the fact that I bought some of the guides in a bundle with this app (as separate apps), inside the app it is trying to sell me those same guides, plus others as well.
Amazing App 5/5
This is the best app for weight loss I have ever seen. It goes above and beyond and has an awesome support group. You won’t be sorry with this one.
Great app. 5/5
I love this app.
Tracking bites 5/5
Love this app!
A wonderful alternative! Thank you, Thank you!!! 5/5
Ok, I admit it, at first i was turned off by the lack of visual appeal and the lack of FitBit syncing capability with this particular app and ended up going with another WW alternative that was prettier after WW switched from point plus to smart points and totally ruined my my 50 pound weight loss streak. HOWEVER, that app changed too and although it did still support folks doing WW Points plus it obviously wasn’t their main thing anymore and i often had trouble finding foods in the database. Flopped around for a long long while and finally decided to give this app a fair shot since they really seem focused on supporting people doing all of the ww programs and I'm glad i did. It took a few days of figuring out the app and i did buy all the add ins but i can say I finally feel back on track and even managed to loose a little over the recent thanksgiving holiday. Im so so thankful for this app and anyone who desperately misses the points plus program should give it a try. It not perfect but i think it really is the best option for us WW points plus people out there. Pros and cons listed below.
Still has the pocket guide, useful for double checking if an infrequently used vegetable is truly “free”
With add ins has a very up to date and user friendly restaurant database and also i have only once had to input data for an item i was using the barcode scanner on so the general food database is really nice as well and I don’t have trouble finding food in the way I prefer to track (by weight).
Plenty of items to choose from in activities
Like the ability to have a favorites food list
Most importantly it supports points plus!!!!!!
As stated before its not the prettiest app nor does it have Fitbit sync capability. Id like to have it split meals by breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and not gave them all in one long list and just generally have it look a little fresher.
But really in the end these thing don’t matter because it does let me do my ww smart points almost effortlessly and that's what i like.
To anyone reading this who is doing smart point and struggling seriously buy this app and give the old system a try.

Constant drop down advertisement icons ruin this app. I’d rather pay weight watchers than put up with this.
Bought this app a couple of days ago. First of all, just getting the app to show up in both my iPhone and iPad was challenging. Got that cleared up finally. Just began using the app today and I’m disappointed that the scanner doesn’t pick up nutritional info as easily as the WW scanner feature. I bought this app because the reviews said it was as good if not better than the WW app. Right now I’m not feeling it.
Also, I was disappointed to see that my phone and pad weren’t syncing info then realized I’d have to pay for that feature. Ok. I bought the syncing feature. However, the food I input today on my iPad won’t show up on my iPhone. Didn’t I just pay for this?? Please tell me why it’s not working or where I should look to fix the problem. I expected an app that more closely resembled the WW app. So far this isn’t a close second. And it’s not as intuitive as one would think/hope.
I hope that this is just a learning curve. If it doesn’t shape up within a couple of days, I’m going to request a refund. I’d rather have no program than deal with these issues everyday.
Love this app! 5/5
I was looking for an inexpensive alternative to weight watchers and found this app. I’ve used it for four days and love it! It takes a little while to learn the food searches might be on one of several places -online, the diary, or USDA - but it does a great job finding some of my foodie food. I’m already losing weight! The activity tracking works well too. I chose the plus plan and it lets me track activity against food daily and there’s a weekly points for extra food for going out or whatever just like WW’s points plus program. NOTE: I did buy three extra in-app purchases to buff this up, but the total was less than one month of WW. I have one request to app maker: please add an Apple Watch sync soon.
It’s very similar to Weight Watchers, but isn’t as user friendly 3/5
This app is wonderful as an alternative but it does take quite some getting use to.
WAAAYYYY more affordable than weight watchers, only a few one time purchases and the app will serve a very similar experience.
This app has a calculate feature which can help you figure out the points of something if you’re only stuck with a label. The original WW app does not have that feature!
The platform feels very outdated and has a few ads which will not go away, apps that cost money shouldn’t have ads interfering with the interface.
It doesn’t have the ability to categorize breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner which I find to be unorganized and unhelpful.
Another thing is, you can’t calculate in anything other than servings, I love to calculate by cups or tablespoons.
The community isn’t as active as WW and you can’t post photos.
All in all, the pros do outweigh the cons and there are far more cons that I could post, BUT you’re going from an app that will cost you a one time cost of no more than $15, while weight watchers online will cost you around $180-$240 a year. If you have the money and have a ton of weight you need to lose, I’d go for weight watchers. But if you’re not very far off from your goal and are relatively broke, go for this app.
Needs Update! 3/5
Love the app but desperately needs a current update! Please!
Love love Love 5/5
Started the app in January and have lost 30 plus pounds. Of coarse you have to work your plan and stay focused. (The app doesn’t do it for you just by downloading it)🤣😂
The support you get through the community is unreal. I recommend this app to everyone.
So thankful for this app! 5/5
I was thrilled when I found out about this app! I’ve been a lifetime member of Weight Watchers for over 10 years, but have gained a little bit of weight over the last 3-4 years. I hate to have to pay so much money to get Weight Watchers e-Tools just to lose 5-7 pounds until I get back to goal, but have such a hard time sticking with it without having a way to track on my phone. I am so happy to have a way to do this now without paying the huge Weight Watchers fee!!! I also feel like the bar code scanner is even better than Weight Watchers- it seems to have more. I also love that I was able to get the recipe builder feature. Great app!
Money Saver 5/5
I think Weight Watchers really works. This app has allowed me to continue tracking without having to spend $55 per month. Life saver!
This one works but be prepared for IAP 4/5
I’ve tried many weight loss apps and have never had the success with this app. I’ve lost 15 lbs in about two months and still using. It is not the easiest app to use and takes some figuring out but it works. It helped show me foods I thought were good to eat were really not as good and I was eating too much of.
However, be prepared to spend money after buying the app. The app is pretty much useless without many of the in app purchases especially the online database. I would rather see one IAP for everything than bits and pieces or just one upfront price in the store.
That being said, the app works and worth the money.
Don’t waste your money ! WW app is sooo much better 1/5
By Kimchi 24
Very confusing app. Too much of a variance between same good ... if you type in Something simple like cucumber ...it comes back with cucumber 2 pts , cucumber 1 pt , cucumber 0 points ( which it should be 0) then cucumber chickpeas ??? 4 pts . Seriously ...dumb app!
Not sure 1/5
I have used WW online for 4 months. I decided to give Itrackbites a try. I was disappointed I had to keep spending more and more money after the initial purchase. I bought a bundle thinking that would be it, but it isn't. I do not like that most of what I buy from the store is not listed. I knew my recipes I would have to enter, but not even Hellmans mayo is listed, among other things. Somethings I already knew the smart points for were not correct on this app. Also, where you log in your food is not broken down for different meals. You can not save frequent meals. I paid another fee so my app would sync between apps and it does not.
I would not recommend this over WW online.
Nice low cost option 5/5
This is a nice low cost option for those who can’t or don’t want to afford Weight Watchers online. The app works great and their community is very active and supportive. It takes a minute to get used to but after that, it is smooth sailing. Try it out!
This is aaaaaaamazing!!!! 5/5
I haven’t done anything like this before but this is helping me so much!!! I plan my meals for the entire day based on my points and now I pay attention to what I eat and space out my meals/snacks so that I feel like I’m eating often and continuing to have something in my stomach through the day. I have never really eaten like this before but I think it will help my metabolism to speed up and I’m also making sure to eat lots of fruit, veggies and protein. The water tracker is also very helpful to make sure I drink enough water and I love having the scanner to easily find out how many points are in foods. I think this is actually a life-changer!!! TOTALLY WORTH $13 (I bought a couple of the add-ons)
Love it! 5/5
By Mary Zem
I was a member of ww online only and this is so much better. Same concept, faster scanner and it works when I’m in stores and love the “Connect” posts. Continuing to drop lbs using only this app. 😘
Great app could use a few adjustments 4/5
It would be nice if you could adjust servings. Ex: add ounces instead of having to use cups, add teaspoons, etc
Very nice, keeps me motivated 4/5
Don't ask folks to rate the app two days after they've downloaded it. Give them a week or two to learn to use it and become comfortable with it. Now that I'm used to it, iTrackBites is great. There is a learning curve, for me, at least. I find it tricky to edit favorite foods to read the way I want them to be.
Worth it! 5/5
Don't pay for WW!
This app is awesome! It does everything I need it to do( other than cook for me!), is easy to use, has 3 “bites” programs to help you attain your weight loss goals and the online support is fabulous! I bought the bundle and highly recommend! What do you have to lose?? Wink wink!
I love this app! I am able to use older WW plans which are mote successful for me! I also like the community support!
I'm using the classic version. Is there somewhere I can just enter the points without having to enter the calories, fat, and fiber? Sometimes I already know the points value and would like not to have to enter the nutritional value because I don't always know it. Being able to enter points without the hassle of trying to figure that out would be great.
I figured out how to add in points for foods that I already know the points for. This app is great! I'm so glad I found it as I have not been able to locate my books for the classic version and the points plus plan does not work for me for whatever reason.
Recipe builder questionable 3/5
When using recipe builder and you put in a item that of course u need to add the box for they make it impossibly complicated because it measures only in cups. What makes them think everything is in cups when in fact when adding for a recipe it’s hardly never cups. I will give it credit that it lets you use the scanner when using recipe builder and ww does not.
Very good. Could be one star better... 4/5
This would be PERFECT for me if the recipe builder allowed me to add foods that I’ve entered manually in my favorites list. It’s nearly there but for this one little piece.
Pay, then pay again, and still be stuck with bad UI 1/5
▪️ Has smart points calculations
▪️ Poor design and experience in the community section
▪️ Poor design when compared to WW or ProTracker Plus
▪️ limited food database unless you pay $6 more in in-app purchases. ProTracker and WW both come with a great UI and Database as part of the normal costs (and ProTracker is a single, one-time purchase). I cannot stress how limiting this is. The only food list you get for free is the list provided by the FDA. Want to scan that hamburger bun to get the points values? Pay up. Are you searching for beer? Pay again. This is especially difficult for people utilizing iTunes family sharing as each user will have to purchase the in-app purchases in order to have normal usage of the app. Also, these paid lists do not seem to be updated frequently.
▪️ UI freezes up when searching FDA list on occasion
▪️ Backups require yet another in-app purchase (no iCloud saving for free even though it's free for developers to implement).
This app is fine for tracking, so long as you know going into it that it’s going to cost you. I just wish it didn’t feel like an app I would make in college.
New to the app 5/5
Just started using the app so I'm still getting use to the different options but so far so good.
Great App! 5/5
Love using this! It's a great alternative to paying monthly for the WW app.
Poor planning for purchasing apps 1/5
So far, I actually like the iTrackBites app for what it is. I have been successful with the other plan that this seems to be based on so I wanted to see what this was at a lesser price point. However, I purchased a 3 pack app so I could have the restaurant information and apparently that doesn't matter in the iTrackBites apps. Going back and forth is a pain!!! I have to purchase it in the app to use it in the app?!? That's just crazy! I already paid for it once!!! I feel like that's a bit of a scam which makes me sour to it. So much for saving money.
App support 1/5
By ab at comcast
There is no app support for a new user who is not computer literate. I have tried to contact them all day and all they do is create a ticket which I cannot even open. I want help or I want my money back!!!
Going back to WW 3/5
I tried. I gave this a real effort. Hated it. Too timely to navigate. No predictive text so you have to type out your entire item only to have it not found. Needs more convenient shortcuts. Sure wish I could get a refund. Waste of time. Lots and lots of time.
Sync my Fitbit and it's 5 stars 4/5
By Lobby my
This app is absolutely wonderful however, it is missing one capability and that is to sync my Fitbit so I know how many activity points I'm earning! If it did that this app would be a five star all day!! I do points plus I hate smart points and for some reason weight watchers took pp away from us so I have found this basically free app and I may never go back to weight watcher apps at this point if iTrackBites figures out how to let us sync our trackers!
AWESOME APP!!!!!!!! 5/5
I use this app everyday. The data base is amazing! Tracks everything for me including restaurants which I love. You cannot go wrong with this app.
Garbage if you happen to know points 1/5
By Alysha C
You don't seem to be able just to enter points if you know them; have to enter all nutritional values or search instead of just entering number. Correct me if I'm wrong; otherwise complete waste of time and money.
So far I am enjoying this app! Much easier than WW app! Thank you!
I accidentally purchased the beer pkg. I did not drink. How can I reverse this?
This app is great for tracking your food points. I am amazed by the barcode system, as it show almost any product. I found the instructions on how to use . Could have some information how to find the the info when you open app.
Great tool 5/5
I have been using this tracker for one week and enjoy it. I paid for weight watchers for one year until I discovered this app does all of the same things. Great tool for weight loss. My favorite tool is the scanner.
Have to pay extra for everything! 2/5
Was excited to use the app, but after purchasing the basic package you have to pay more for way too many features that should be included. Most apps have larger food data bases, but this one it's an extra $1.99. Then another $1.99 for restaurant guide, another $1.99 to build your own recipes and yet another $1.99 for beer guides. Most of the information is available with apps that have bigger food databases. Not happy that I spent $3.99 and basically get nothing.
Good App 5/5
Clunky app 2/5
I really wanted to like this app. Based on other reviews I should have. As others have noted, the interface is terrible, the food database is limited, and you are continually prompted to buy up. No thanks. I've used this app for a month and I'm giving up. Don't waste your money on this. I'll just count calories.
Really nice app 3/5
I like the app. User friendly. Love the calculators! Could be improved with a better food list and an added function for reminders to log your bites/points. Oh and please please please fix the bar code scanner. Hasn’t worked in forever.
This app is absolutely wonderful!!
Overall great.. minus lack of detail and the dangling ad nags 3/5
Simple and clean layout. Wish it had a clear, assessable breakdown of daily nutritional info. Wish after I paid for multiple upgrades on the app, I stopped receiving annoying ad prompts for other software.
Similar to weight watchers 3/5
Decent app. Easy to use and track diet and points. The add ons are absolutely terrible. The add ons are the biggest ripoff in the App Store. This one is good but I highly advise DO NOT PURCHASE ANY OF THE EXTRAS! There is no way to get your money back and they are absolute total garbage.
