If you’re going to charge at least make it work 1/5
I have no problem paying for an app, but this thing is so buggy it barely works. I want to add a recipe and have to do some finagling just to get it to add. I can’t go online to add it either since I’m not a “premium” subscriber. If I can’t add stuff via the app I’m not going to pay more to do it online.
Why should I pay more for something I already paid for. Ridiculous.
Keeps you accountable 4/5
It’s a great app for those who know that calories don’t matter as much as macros. It’s simple and easy to use. Food data base is not as large as MyFitnessPal however the more people use it and I use it the database is expanded and a lot more accurate than MyFitnessPal.
The new feature that was added a few weeks ago called Macro Coach is absolutely incredible! The feature consists on setting a goal, adding your current info and every week do a “check in” which will cause adjustments to be automatically done to keep moving forward to your goal. The more I use it, the more effectively it works.
The only thing I wish is that the pace calculated by Macro Coach was according to fat mass instead of body weight. The reason is that the last few weeks I have been losing fat mass at an impressive pace BUT haven’t lost weight. If the pace is calculated just by body weight then the app will keep reducing my macros and calories regardless of making a lot of process in fat loss.
Waste of $$$$ 1/5
By Burger addict
Other than being able to customize macros this app is not worth paying for. 98% of the foods I scan with barcode aren’t recognized and I have to manually enter. And not real impressed with the search function either.
Doesn’t seem like the designers keep up with this app.
Please opt for a free app before spending money on this one.
Good app 4/5
It’s a good app I just wish it had a bigger data base and some of the things I scan don’t come out right
Best ever! 5/5
I've been using this app for about 2 years and I can't say enough good things about it. I've compared it to other apps that people have told me to use and I just find it to be easier and more user friendly!
Used with avatar nutrition synch. 5/5
A small bit of a learning curve after moving from MFP. But it's so convenient to use especially when it adjusts macros for heavy training days, and light training days through the avatarnutrition.com site. Progress has finally been made, and now I'm on my way to breaking through that year long wall I've been running in to. Highly recommend. The food data base could be a little more broad. But I find it to be more reliable than MFP.
Absolutely aweful 1/5
Don’t waste your money. You end up having to spend more in the end because of “subscriptions”. Get MyFitnessPal or something that is actually useful
Super Buggy and search is useless 1/5
I literally can’t find anything I type in, even with global search turned on. I have to scan everything if I need to add it and sometimes I don’t always have the product. App has a ton of bugs, coincidently also while searching. First item is hidden by Serving Size and Brand filters, once an item is selected it’s pretty much frozen till you hit the back button. Cannot multi select when searching for items.
Love it 5/5
Literally perfect for tracking my macros. Downfall is they don't have a huge food database like MfP but it's easy enough to google or scan a barcode and enter it in the system. I’ve been using this app for about four years and it is always consistent and easy to use regardless of what features are added. Super easy to navigate as well!
Search function 1/5
By yoga man
So much of this works well but the search function is not workable compared to other apps. I have to google the item in question for nutritional numbers and manually input into Macros.
Not worth the money 1/5
I purchased the app about a year and a half ago, previously being a MyFitnessPal user. The app had a lot of promise seeing as you could use as many meals as you want and set customizable goals. But with the promise of updating a larger consumer database the developers have seriously neglected their customers. I’ve been waiting for months on end for the database to become better and nothing while myfitnesspal has moved past the three strict meals. I strongly regret my purchase and would switch back over to myfitnesspal if I didn’t already log my weights for the past year in this program. It’s been a huge pain to manually enter all my food. An app is suppose to make your life easier, logging food on myfitnesspal with their database takes less then two minutes. While having to manually enter and create a new food item on macros+ can take 5-10 minutes. I find myself using myfitnesspal’s database to create foods on this app, I’ll probably switch back over soon and just bite my ego and take the loss on the purchase and just relog my info when I have the time. If your stuck between the two apps stick with myfitnesspal, this app has been a headache and a half as regular tracker.
Great app but needs some work 4/5
By Kapan crunch
The food registary is not the greatest but you can add the foods you eat on a normal basis. MFP has a better food registary but overpriced. It does sync up with avatar nutrition but if you choose high/low days, it does not sync. You have to manually put it in for those days. A little tedious; I’ve made them aware of this several times. For the price and purpose, it’s a great app. If the could fix those 2 things, it would smash MFP.
Intuitive app to use 3/5
This app does a great job of letting you add and customize your food. I would however LOVE IT if the developers also let you track Potassium micronutrient intake from food and not just simply Sodium. Please, please, please add this in the next update 🙏🏽.
Returning user 4/5
Much has improved since I last used this app a couple years ago. Excellent improvements!
Only one feature I hoped for then still hasn't happened or I would give five stars. It would be very helpful to be able to change the unit of measure on a scanned item that would adjust the macros accordingly. For example, when it scans as 1 ml I have to change to oz & factor up all the macros so I can re-use as a favorite.
Thanks for the continued support of this app!
Best App 5/5
I have tried every type of app like this. I found this to be the best one for me. It works for me. Wish I would have come across it earlier.
Save Your Money 1/5
I feel like it’s just a fancier version of My Fitness Pal, and all the “perks” of the app you want to use cost more money... I can use cronometer for free to do exactly what this app does. Save your money, it’s really not worth the $3.
Not worth the money. 2/5
I have been using MyFitnessPal for years, but wanted something with more customization. I love that this app allows me to set different macro goals for different days, and has more than just the typical three meal set up.
However, the food database is seriously lacking. It’s incredibly difficult to find simple foods, and I’ve ended up adding almost everything so far as a custom food. Lucky for me I eat essentially the same thing every day, so after adding a food I can easily add it from the recent list. But it’s still a hassle initially.
Also, the barcode feature is hit or miss. There have been several times that the product couldn’t be found, had info completely different from the box, or brought up something similar but not exactly what I was looking for. Which, again, leads to me going through the process of adding a custom food.
I will continue to use this app for the simple reason that I paid money for it, but I’m really tempted to just switch back to MyFitnessPal. I wish there was a free trial because I absolutely would not have wasted my money had I known about these issues. At this point I would not recommend it to anyone.
Used for a year and still an empty database 2/5
By Loyal Customer for YEARS
Ok, I can see the database being empty when first created but this has been established for at least two years yet still an inefficient database. I still have to have MFP on my phone simply to search items not in My Macros. Not really something expected from an app you pay for
Good stuff. Worth the price. I like that it shows the macros of each food. Searching is pretty terrible though.
Has mad potential 4/5
It’s good I always use it but they need to step up the barcode scans and their database as a whole other than that it’s great
Super disappointed that It crashes every time I go to register for Macro Coach. Waould like my $2.99 back or a fix really soon.
This app has potential. If it integrated better with Apple Watch for the workouts and logging was easier it would be the perfect app.
Easy tracking and link with Avatar Nutrition 5/5
SO MUCH POTENTIAL!! 3/5
By J Guapp
Overall, a great app. Although the bar code scanner hasn’t worked for me once. I’ve tried fiddling with it for a while before I made my review but nothing still seems to work. Would be great if this could get a solid update with better and working features!
Love this app 5/5
My girlfriend and I love this app, and has helped us cut 20 lbs so far (1 lb a week). I started paying the $2 a month premium not because I need it (half a year without it) but because I felt like it's done more for us than what what we paid for.
Note however that the macro calculator is a good start, however expect to adjust. I have it set to lose 2.5lbs a week but I'm only losing 1 (which is what I want).
Overall it's awesome and I've recommended it to friends already. Thanks developers!
Love the app! 5/5
The barcode scanner is so convenient, and any foods not in the system already can be quickly and easily added and saved. I've used this app every day since downloading.
Best tracking app 5/5
Dropped 20 pounds, put back on muscle weight. This app helps me regulate my foods to hit my fitness goals!
Love the App But... 3/5
I would love to give this app five stars. It is much easier to use than MyFitnessPal in my opinion, the database is amazing and pretty large and it's straight to the point( All I want to track is Macros and Calories. That's IT!!) My only issue is the calculation of calories and macros. It is extremely off. I spent almost and hour trying to figure out why my macros for lunch wasn't adding up to the calorie amount displayed. This leaves me conflicted. I love the app BUT it isn't reliable. I would love some support and help with this.
And yes I made sure the nutritional information was correct for each food entry. The Calculations were still off. Ughhh!
Great app 5/5
I love this app! The food database isn't as extensive as myfitnesspal (you can add new food easily in this app anyway), but the levels of customization make this a must for any macro-tracker. The recipe feature is amazing too!
Limited but has potential 2/5
By BMAN WELLS
The concept is there. Partial functionality is there. Unless you eat packaged foods or at restaurants all the time, you will still need another macro book. This does NOT have raw, fresh foods calculated. So if you are some broccoli, you will have to look up the nutrition unless it was green giant frozen broccoli. Are a fresh chicken breast? Again, not in the app. I have a macro book but was wanting the app for simplicity and to ditch my notebook records and go electronic. It’s actually more time consuming to use this app with the lack of foods in the program. Like I said, if you eat out or get pre packaged foods and not fresh produce and meat items, you will probably like it.
Love the app for a newbie 4/5
I am new to macro counting and so this app was recommended to me. At first, like any new app, it was confusing but once I tried adding food to practice , it got easier.
Although this app seems to have great potential, it is not easy to navigate. In addition, I’ve only had it for about an hour, and it has already crashed on me 10 times! Come on guys, get it together!
Love it!!! 5/5
I have used all the other apps as well as Nutribase software since I am always conscience of my nutrition being a bodybuilder and I find this app the best of all! The only downfall is searching for some foods can be a task.
By Vyntaje Gypsy
So I was tracking carbs with another app and then would come to this app to see meals... ultimately this app after learning to use t properly gives me everything I need to track my macros and gain the results I'm working towards! It's 80% diet!!
All data gone after iPhone upgrade 1/5
Edit 10/10/2017: Upgraded to a new iPhone and the app lost all of my previous data, including saved foods, recipes, goals, and weight. 😡
I’ve been using the app for a few days and love it. It is clearly designed with the IIFYMer in mind.
Easy to use. Barcode scanner works great. Takes only a few seconds to add a custom food. Love that I can copy and paste meals from previous days. (I tend to eat certain meals over and over again.)
In a way, I find the app really fun because I see my macros for the day at the top and how close I am to reaching them. Starts off as an alarming red in the morning (Gotta eat!), then warms up to green as you get closer to your daily goals.
Feedback: Show fiber as a featured daily macro along with P, C and F. (You can view daily fiber, but you have to go to the daily totals for all nutrients to see it.)
Great App- but crashes whenever I attempt to register an account 4/5
Great app- I’m able to keep track of all my food and water intake. However, i am attempting to create an account but the app keeps crashing whenever I click ‘Register New Account’.
Way better than My Fitness Pal! 5/5
No comparison in my book. Love the app. Totally geared towards iifym and you can tell 👍🏼
I wasted $3 on this. Tried several times to just register a new account and every single time it froze and shut down. Also I hate the fact that it doesn’t let you log your workout? You need to download a separate app for that. Lame.
Great app 5/5
This app is super easy to use! I love how you can set your goal each day and it helps you keep count!
So helpful! 5/5
This app has made my first week of keto very manageable. Don't know what I would've done without it! Once you learn the basics, it's easy to use for each meal. I love that I can easily play around with potential meals so I know exactly what my macros would be at the end of the day. Really helps me stay on track!
Unless you like surfing the web for information to put into the app don't get it 1/5
It's ridiculous that even just for a banana or an avocado or even just a glass of milk I have to surf the web for information on that food then put it into the app to get information waste of money.
Water Goal 5/5
Nice app. Would be nice to have a daily water consumption goal ability too.
Nice app needs some minor tweaks 4/5
Apps is nice and user friendly, however please fix the search bar. For example I type in specifically the name on the product I’m eating and it will bring up nothing close to what I want. Very annoying when I don’t have a bar code because I threw away the package before tracking.
difficult to use 1/5
Cant find simple things like 1 whole avocado. keeps bringing up subs and then wants me to specify ounces
Amazing app with a few bugs 5/5
I love how the app functions and have zero complaints about how you use the app. I use this app and its workout tracker counter part to track all my nutrition and fitness data. The only thing is that mymacros+ doesn’t sync its nutrition data correctly with Apple health. When I go into the Apple heath app it doesn’t display the correct amounts of my macro nutrients and will display protein amounts in the 10,000g/day range. I’m running IOS 11 on an iPhone 7plus. Hopefully this gets fixed soon. It would also be cool if the myworkout+ app exported estimated calories burned data to Apple health based on age, weight, height, and body fat.
Valid Marco Counting 4/5
If you're getting serious about counting your macro and micro nutrients, this app is for you. You can create your own foods and/or take barcode pictures. I give 4 stars because the 'search' ability is not helpful. The search engine doesn't find food easily nor do the pre-added brands consistently match to realistic calorie counts. Overall, great app! I've been using My Macros+ for a year!
Awesome app 5/5
Bang for the buck I tell yuh what.really great app I believe there's a free one called mapmyfitness but I'm sticking with this. A+++
Awesome app!!! 4/5
Love how organized everything is and it charts your progress. Just wish it had more food imputed into it.
Great app to trac macros 5/5
I love that it syncs with Avatar nutrition!!
Awesome App 5/5
Easy to use. Almost all of my food has been in their database using the barcode scanner. Works with Avatar Nutrition's web program.
