Almost perfect 4/5
By Annie get your Gun!
Love everything about it! A few things would make it a touch better! It would be great if it had more standard measurements! And it would be great if when you accidentally put food in the wrong time of the day to have an easy way to just switch the meal time rather then RE enter it!
Unwanted subscriptions 1/5
This is a great app. However , when I got a new phone the subscription did not transfer over. When I tried to reactivate it on my new phone I was charged for a whole new subscription.
I like the app and it’s layout but it keeps crashing! It’s the only app on my phone that does this so I know it’s the app that’s the problem. Wish they would fix it!
I’m really enjoying the app 4/5
It has been helping me to track my carb intake. It has great trackers for just about everything.
I just wish that it had menu programs for diabetics (watching their carb intake) and a Paleo program.
It works for me! 5/5
Lifesum just works for me, the UI is just great and I enjoy tracking with it.
Haven’t bought the premium yet, but I probably will soon.
This is a great tool ❤️❤️❤️❤️!!!
Love it, but one small bug 5/5
I've been using Lifesum for about 10 days now, and I really enjoy using it. It's simple, and easy to use. My goal with Lifesum is to help me eat more, since I under eat a lot. While my under eating problems have been getting better since using Lifesum, there is one bug that kinda annoys me. Whenever I log a meal, it says that it is a few calories under, which is a really helpful aspect of this app. Sometimes, this feature bugs out, and gives the incorrect number of calories under. For example, if I log 200 calories of food, it will say that I am 200 calories under the minimum goal, which isn't true. Hopefully this bug will be fixed soon, because it's really driving me crazy.
I love this app so far. I only wish there were more recipes. The other thing is that whenever I tried to upgrade to try the full version, I couldn’t because my payment method is none. I use iTune cards. Would you please solve this problem.
Love this ! 4/5
I love this app! It has helped me so much to keep track of what I am eating! Only thing I wish is that it was cheaper :( I can’t afford the premium version I am on the free trial as of now but I’m scared of when it expires I will gain my weight back ugh!! :(
Great app! And free!!! 5/5
Great app! And free!!!
Not the best option 2/5
Switched to Lifesum from MyFitnessPal just to try something different. Aesthetics is pretty much all this app has going for it. The emojis that judge your meal choices are cool, but when the food info isn’t correct, they’re not much help. The search database is completely off calorie-wise and most things are misspelled (even cell phones have spell check now..), so if you don’t have a barcode on what you’re eating, you’re screwed. I found myself Googling how many calories were actually in foods - most of the time, MyFitnessPal was the first search result - and adding it manually. When you add manually, you can only input calories, no other nutrition info. Also, with MyFitnessPal, you get recipes/articles without upgrading to premium.
Lost 16 pounds! 4/5
I love this app, the only thing is that I input my weight years ago, before I started using it. Since then I gained weight, and lost 16 pounds once using the app. However, it used to say “gained 2 pounds” since I was 2 pounds heavier in total than I was a while ago. Now it says “lost 3 pounds”. It would be nice to update my weight retroactively so it accurately shows “lost 16 pounds”
Share meals and recipes 3/5
Decent app, needs a better food database. Would be great if you could share meals/recipes. My wife and I are both on a Keto diet and frequently dine together and eat the same thing. It would be great if we could “eat together” or at least I could send her my meal so she didn’t also have to manually build out the meal or recipe. You release that and this’ll get updated to 5 stars for sure!
I can’t even start... 2/5
So I’m underweight and I’m trying to gain weight to get healthier. I tried starting with the gaining weight option, but it doesn’t believe me when I say I’m 82.3 lbs. (My BMI is 16.6) so I can’t continue because it just keeps asking me if that’s the right number :( makes me sad cause this seemed like an alright app that could help me out
Okay so far; but UI issues take away from experience 3/5
It’s an okay experience so far because of UI issues. Swiping to go back in Settings is broken. If I’m in settings and tap “Personal Details,” for example, and then swipe back, I won’t return to the Settings menu I was in. The app will glitch out and send me back to my “Profile” page. Please fix!
klutzy and then stuck in ui 2/5
look it is not that complicated. just want to enter a generic set of favorites to populate my daily diet.
as this is what i wanted, i find this wont support this without repeating search and adding to meals for each day and each meal.
consequently i am searching for something else or write my own
Goede app 4/5
Goede app maar kon mijn echte gewicht niet invoeren ant hij zei dat dat niet kon. Enige min punt.
Total waste of money 1/5
I paid for premium in order to get access to the so called “diet plans.” What a waste of money. There are no actual meal plans associated with the selected diet plan, just a very brief explanation of what you should and shouldn’t eat. However, you can browse through the limited list of recipes that they have to build your own meal plans. That is tedious though because not all of the recommended recipes are appropriate for your selected diet plan. There is also a feature where you can select diet preferences and allergies. That doesn’t seem to inform any of the recommendations either as most of my recommended meals contained dairy of which I’m allergic to. This app was a total waste of time and money.
New update keeps crashing 4/5
Dies after about 10 seconds on iPhone 5s. Loved previous versions. Need to get it fixed. I am using the latest version of iOS.
Good & Bad 3/5
By Sade Lauren
Gives good information & comes in handy but for the information you really need to know you have to pay for sooo..,
STOP WORKING DO NOT TRY 1/5
Stupid app stopped working!!
KEEPS CRASHING!!! 1/5
By You don't even care
Fix it, new time user. Disappointed
Great for those who love a clean, simple interface 4/5
While not as robust as apps like Lose It and MyFitnessPal, Lifesum offers a different experience. They’ve done a great job with simplifying the process of tracking your meals and workouts. The general workflow is quick, easy, and the emojis featured with each meal keep me engaged in providing updates and improving my overall health. When I eat well, I get a super smiley emoji to reflect that, and the positive reinforcement keeps me motivated. Contrarily, when I don’t eat well, a sad or angry-faced emoji appears, prompting me to do better.
Lifesum ultimately, makes my quest toward a healthier lifestyle seem easy.
Loving it for years. 5/5
I've had this app for about 2.5 yrs and even though I haven't been super consistent about notating my meals and workouts, I absolutely love it. The recipes I love. I love that I can give myaelf a check up on how I eat and drink and the type of workouts I do.
I do wish entering in my workouts was a bit easier. I do a lot of yoga and I don't think the app accurately protrays the calories burned when practising yoga on a regular basis but I like that it syncs up with the Health app and that is helpful.
Love this app never getting rid of it.
It would also be nice if the app expertise portion included steam and sauna as a calorie burner.
Could the developers also look into making logging yoga practices a little bit easier.
They both increase the heart weight like a cardio workout
By Book Loved
I’m mad that I paid $30 for a subscription cause it was not with it AT ALL!
Why offer a diet plan that has the same 5 meal recommendations?
How come there are no dietitians or even an article that could guide you about the plan the app recommends?
Plus, I honestly don’t even want to log my food cause every search I make has odd results that aren’t related to my food item. Plus, I often cook my own food and can’t even include that like MyFitness Plan allows me to.
This app is definitely not worth it, subscription or no subscription.
What if you are a kid???? 5/5
Hahah I saw this and I'm really out of shape but what if your like 16 and you want to get back in shape??
No need for premium! 1/5
Kind of annoyed that I upgraded to the premium to get the "plans" however they are not plans at all, rather a generic overview of what that type of diet consists of. Why would I pay the subscription when nothing changed! I could have still tracked my food intake without upgrading! Seems just like myfitnesspal. I was hoping for something better with this app and was hoping the plans were actually going to be something you can follow.
Vegan options? 4/5
For the most part, i love the app. However, i’m really trying to loose weight and food has always been an issue for me. It’s be great to provide vegan friendly meal plans / recipes.
This app is useful 3/5
By rocen kween
I really love the app I think it’s a great weight loss helper what I do not love however is how it took my 44 dollars for a subscription and no matter how I tried to cancel it no luck 🤷🏽♀️
Not bad, but not the best. 2/5
There’s not an option in this app to create custom meals, so when you add up an omelette for example, you have to add it up separately every time.
Also, everything that would be cool about this app is premium, which I understand, you have to make money somewhere, but there’s also a lot of free calorie counters like my plate, which has more options for free.
I just honestly would not recommend this app.
Useful app, but... 4/5
Attractive UI, but UX has a long way to go. I’m not going into to details, just one example. First I gave you 3 stars, because I could not switch to metric system. Later I tried to search google “Lifesum metric” and found out that it is possible to switch to the system, through many levels of menus I found it.
4 stars for a bad UX.
P.S. it’s called metric system, not European, the whole world uses it(except a few “special” countries...).
FIX IT 1/5
I loved this app and now it keeps crashing when I try to log anything. Fix it.
Food database is way off 2/5
By Secret Shame
I was just kinda sick of the MyFitnessPal UI so I decided to try out Lifesum for calorie counting. I thought there would be more plans with the paid version, but turns out there are maybe 10 tops and I wouldn’t call them “plans” per se, more like “general themes without much personalization”. I like the Lifesum UI but when I’m without a barcode and have to use the search bar to enter food, I end up with lots of odd, misspelled options with ENTIRELY different calorie counts! One of the first options that came up for olive oil said there were 58 calories in a TB, roughly half the actual amount. Despite prepaying for 6 months I think I might have to go back to MyFitnessPal just for reliability.
Almost perfect 4/5
I really love this app. Maybe more that Fitness pal bc it lets me take a test where I can pinpoint what diet would be better for me. I am on the Keto strict diet and from the research and endless videos I’ve seen I should be counting net carbs not total carbs. Unfortunately this app counts total carb and not net carbs so that really limits me on my eating. I would love it if it keep track of my net carbs instead of total. Since that is what we should be counting when on Keto diet. Please fix this!!
Inaccurate suggestions 2/5
Some of the pop up suggestions of things you should be eating contain recommendations that actually go against a great deal of research.
I like it but… 3/5
I don’t like that you can’t see recipes without having an add for premium. I like it because I can see how much I lost and it makes me happy. If you guys can update this please do I am really deciding if I’m going to keep it or not.
This app keeps on crashing 2/5
Can’t open it for more than 20 seconds before it crashes.
I used to love it. 2/5
Until about a week ago, I loved this app! For some reason (I didn’t change any of the apps settings or the settings on my Apple Watch or phone), the app stopped accurately tracking my activate calories. At the end of the day, my calories were off by more than 200. Some days it said I burned more than what my watch and phone said, other days it said I burned less. Aside from that, I REALLY like this app and hope that this issue is resolved soon!
Good, but has some issues 3/5
I’ve been using Lifesum for a few months. I switched from MyFitnessPal because the UI of that app was driving me nuts, and LifeSum presented a much more straightforward food tracker.
I’ve had two technical support issues with Lifesum, one of which I opened yesterday and is still ongoing.
The first was because I couldn’t get the app to appear on my Apple Watch. I jumped through all the hoops, it just wouldn’t install until on the advice of Lifesum support, I deleted and reinstalled the app. That got the Apple Watch app to install (the Watch app turned out to be terrible. It wants to be a tomagotchi, not show me my actual calorie count for the day. Really strange design decision folks.)
When I reinstalled the app, it lost lots of settings. My calorie counts were preserved, but all my notifications were lost, my weight loss progress was reset (talk about demotivating) I had to log into my Lifesum account multiple times to get it to recognize the premium account.
The current issue I’m having, where Lifesum only recognizes about 50% of my active calories, has been going on for a few days. I suspect it’s because I’m running the iOS 11.1 beta. Support’s first suggestion? Delete and reinstall the app.
By Weasel Lord
It won’t stop helping track my data and generating a overview of what I’m eating.
Now I know why I succumb to bad food. Not enough calories!
Mostly Seems like a great app but prices need a little work 3/5
Me and my parents were interested in the app but we don’t think that the prices are fair enough. Instead of paying monthly, we can pay a one time fee/price in the apple store. That way we won’t have to spend too much money monthly and save the prices all up to one to pay for!
The app is mocking my weight. 1/5
I got this app bc I’m underweight and wanted to get healthier. When I tried to enter my starting weight it says “Are you sure that’s what you meant? Try a different number.” And will not let me pass that portion unless I enter in a fake weight for myself. So not a realistic starting point bc apparently that is just too gross to weigh what I weigh. It made me feel worse than before and so I found the app “my fitness pal” which is much more helpful and allows me to see an honest journey to my goals. Thanks for nothing though Lifesum.
Best app ever! 5/5
I am not a premium member though I love this app! Something I like is that even if you don’t have a premium account to get some recipe recommendations! The one thing I suggest is, hide the recipes tab if you don’t have a premium account.
To make it even better 5/5
By Hannah Schiok
Along with other reviews, I’d love it if this app would give me suggested meals to get back on track. Other than that, it’s awesome and I’ve lost 5 pounds in the first week, and more leaving as the days pass. Thanks to the team who created this.
Great interface but foods don’t log vitamins 2/5
I love the interface of this app! I would love to use this compared to what I’m using now, but it’s just not as precise as some of the other food logging apps.. this does not seem to log vitamins or minerals at all.
I love the app over all, it's user friendly and I love the smiley faces to tell me how I am doing. However, I HATE that it doesn't count net carbs especially because that is so important for a keto diet, since this app has the setting for a keto diet I would think it should be able
To count net carbs! Please
Please please update this feature!
Pregnancy setting 3/5
I have used this app and enjoyed it, but it's not working for me while pregnant. Their isn't a plan, or a way to edit a plan, for pregnancy, or needing to gain weight.
I love the app but when you add food to the snack category you can’t delete the food or edit it I think it’s a glitch tried deleting and re downloading still same issue won’t go away
No support for landscape mode for iPads 5/5
By Michael Anhari
This app is beautiful, but it's a bummer that it doesn't support landscape mode. I primarily use an iPad Pro and it's a bit of pain to have to unhinge the keyboard solely to use this app.
By Behnoosh nooshi
So far so good
I really get the value from Lifesum 4/5
When I'm good about tracking my food I get a lot of value from Lifesum. I miss when each meal had a letter grade instead of just a smiley face, it helped me understand my choices better.
My only other comment (and it's totally wishful thinking) is that it would be AMAZING if the app would make suggestions for foods or meals to eat to stay on track nutritionally. When I get off balance, I have to sort through my knowledge for items high in protein/fat and low in carbs or whatever and hope it's enough to correct my deficiencies. Sometimes I even type in a whole days worth of food in advance just to see if it will meet my desired breakdowns. It would be easier if the app would help you plan ahead.
I know, I know, ridiculous request. Otherwise the app is very user friendly and I highly recommend it.
