By READ THEN BUY
the community is incredibly sweet and the list of foods is super specific!! i cant speak for the exercise portion of the app as i use it just to track calories and water intake but its super clean and crisp and makes it super easy to track your meals and progress!!:)
Easy enough to use
Average at best. 3/5
This app has the potential to be really nice but it hasn't been updated for a long time.
Very good and easy app 5/5
I am so enjoying it. I just love this app so much that why I decided to write a review. 1 week on and lost 8 pounds already.
Useful for weight loss. No tech support 4/5
A useful app and helps you track calories to lose weight. Synchronize with Apple Watch to burn calories. Works great if you only use one IOS device. Sometimes it takes a day sync properly between devices. The other problem is there is no tech-support anymore. I've left three messages in the past couple of months and never got a reply.
So far so good 3/5
Well, I've been meaning to get in shape recently and this app just might make it easier to do so. So far I've had a easy enough time using the app and it's main page and not much else. But, what I have used has been great. I would recommend this app to people who want to watch what they eat and slim down.

I like the way of user experience in the app and socializing aspect
Like it 5/5
I have the free version, and I just use it to track my daily food and exercise; I haven't used the Community page or used the workouts. Anyway I really like it. It's super easy to use, I like the graphics, and it has a food data base that seems large to me. I've never had it crash or encountered a weird glitch. It's definitely helping me with my quest to live healthier.
love this tracker! I keep getting disappointed because I think the food I eat won't be on there, but so far everything has been. So happy!
I like it so far 4/5
Better than others that I have tried
Used to be great 1/5
I used to use this app everyday and then they made an update and I couldn't log in anymore and now when I try to make a new profile it tells me to log in. Then when I try to log in via facebook it says no account found. I tried for days. I quit.
Good for tracking food but not exercise 1/5
My best advice is to be careful when inputting data. Very careful. Making changes for food is ok but DO NOT make a mistake when inputting exercise. I inadvertently added an exercise to the wrong date (next day). You cannot delete it like you can for food. The "0" option is grayed out. Best you can hope for is reducing the exercise to one minute. But, that data still gets logged. Using the Community Board is useless and if there is a link to get technical support I wish you better luck than I had. I used to like this app but it has become more trouble than it us worth. Look elsewhere.
The go to app 5/5
By Mariee louu
Easy to use it's free and you have the option to scan your foods barcode simple.
Awesome app 5/5
High quality 5/5
Love dis app
Amazing app 5/5
This is one of the most helpful apps I've ever worked with.
All I need to do is insert everything I eat and it gives me an aprox. of what I'm consuming each day.
If I make sure to consume less, then I'm sure to also lose weight.
Quick and easy to use 5/5
I am sure I don't use the app for all that it can do but I do use it for logging my food/calorie intake and water intake. It is quick and easy. Most of the foods are already loaded in and a couple keystrokes will bring it up or something really close. I also love the barcode scanner. One zap and my food choice is logged and calculated. I just wish I could have everything in one app and maybe I do and just don't know it but I use my Apple Watch for fitness tracking, run for weight loss app for a virtual fitness coach, and this for food and hydration. It works but would work better if it was one stop shop! LUV THIS APP NO LESS!
Too many trolls 2/5
Too many trolls giving unsafe advice to people in the community section.. needs to have a "block user" function. Other then that pretty cookie cutter.
Very good 5/5
Convenient and useful. Great tool for self control and lifestyle management. Thanks
Zero stars 1/5
I was excited to get this app and start using it! Unfortunately there is no way to even sign up. I get thru all the steps and and then choose a user name and then it says "there was a problem with the returned data from the server". Super frustrating and I've tried about 10 times to create an account. Will be deleting and never re-downloading.
Simple to use 5/5
I love this app for tracking all of my food every day it's really easy to use.
I like this app! 5/5
Helps me keep track of my calories and syncs with Health
Change the payment plan! 3/5
I HIGHLY suggest they change the pricing of the app. They should offer a one time purchase for the gold upgrade rather than paying monthly. This would set it aside from the competition and I would gladly pay for gold. Until that day I will continue to use the free version. If they are concerned this may be unfair to those who have already paid, they should simply reduce the cost of upgrading by however much a current gold member has already paid in monthly fees.
Although overall it is a great app for weight loss.
This app has a very extensive data of packaged and fresh food which includes how much protein, fat and carbs are in each serving. It's easy to track and see on a chart, exactly what goes in my belly.
Very Good And Effective App 5/5
By Check jc
This app is definitely 10 stars. It's great for gaining or losing weight. It's so cool how you can scan food as well. I would totally recommend.
Can I go back to the old version? 1/5
I preferred MyPlate over MyFitnessPal because it was much easier to view all the information in a pleasing layout on one screen, and it was simple to use. Now I have to click extra buttons to add food and see the graph, etc. So disappointed. I'm going to hope I get used to it, but I'm also going to look elsewhere.
PS Does anyone really need to see their weight on the 'home' page? I think we all know what we weigh unless the app knows something we don't. That info is taking up valuable space, like where the graph used to be...useful information without having to 'click'.
Love/Hate relationship 3/5
I love the way the app looks great however the recent update is not to my taste- I preferred the last interface.
It's easy to use if you're not going for a specific diet and just want to keep track of what you eat. It would be nice if it tracked the amount of vitamins and minerals too. I find t hard to get the amount of zinc I need.
The community is a bunch of bullies and trolls who can't except that their diet is the holy grail to everyone's weight loss. They fail to understand that everyone is different. Different diets work for different people. For the longest time I kept getting notifications for then ones I have already viewed and it took weeks to fix this... no help from livestrong at all...
The app has problems receiving data from my step tracker app and is very bad at calculating the amount of calories I burned (only 30 calories for 3 miles? Come on....). I can tell I burned more than that because my blood sugar has already dropped and I've probably burned off breakfast and lunch.
I have had great success with this app and that's the thing I do like about it. <3
What were they thinking? 2/5
What were they thinking when they added keystrokes to the interface without any added functionality? For an app like this to be actually used, it has to facilitate fast data entry. The new version slows data entry by adding completely unnecessary keystrokes, so it's less useful.
In like with this app 5/5
I've used this app off and on for several years. If you click on the "i" the sodium and other info pops up (if the food is verified).
Now that I am getting more serious about clean eating and weight management, this app will be a great partner.
Good tracker 4/5
I said out to eat healthier and exercise more. The barcode scanner makes it easy to feed the program household foods. Works best on larger (than iPhone 4s) format screens. Actually kind of enjoy the community aspect.
I lost 10 Pounds Easily 5/5
Teaches portion control.
There's something about tapping the "I Ate This" button that holds you accountable.
Very powerful app.
Great app 5/5
Nice database of food items, good way of keeping tabs on nutritional value of things you eat instead of just calories. Not too invasive on notifications.
This app is average for free. I don't know what the upgraded version is like but it's bare minimum food app. The exercise is limited and they don't cross with any other apps. I've had to add about 25% of what I eat. Surprised by some of the calorie count has so much variety. All in all is okay for a basic food tracking app
Pretty disappointing 2/5
By Chock catch
Crashes a lot. Doesn't show BMR (calories burned without activity). Foods are only measured by "serving" which is problematic. Calories burned for many activities don't make sense to measure by time, but that's the only option. Calories for some activities are way off the mark.
Easy to use 5/5
It is very easy to use! Reminds you to eat. And even send you great emails. To help stay healthy.
Deleted immediately 1/5
By Fatman fighting
The registration is so long and requires a public username which you cannot skip. I tried half a dozen usernames before giving up and deleting the app. What a mess.
Disappointing and weak 1/5
* Bar code reader does not work -- at all -- ever.
* Selecting a serving size is awkward and very limited. Forget measuring in grams if the servings are setup in ounces.
* Nutritional info is rarely accurate and varies widely among duplicate items. Clearly there is very little verification of 'user supplied' dietary info.
Keeps getting better 5/5
Great and constantly improving
Love it 5/5
Love it so far
Not accurate 2/5
By Lady Pepperell
This app appears to give incorrect daily totals.I went back over everything I ate three times and nothing had more than a negligible amount of sodium. Somehow it shows I consumed over 1,600mg of sodium. Readings on carbs and fat don't add up either. I only ate 1,400 calories on a vegetarian diet, so how could I surpass the RDA for fat, carbs and protein? Not very useful.
It's ok. 3/5
I like that I can track food. It's hard to know if the food on the list is similar enough to the food I actually have. But, it helps me with controlling my sweets mostly.
Good overall 3/5
The food library needs to be improved upon, sort options need to be added.
Overall easy app to track your meals.
I do like the Fitness tab with 7 min workouts!
Great tracker for healthy eating! 5/5
I love this tracker. It's made it really easy to keep track of calories and macronutrients daily. I've used it for different goals - losing weight, maintaining, gaining safely (during pregnancy) and it's been a great tool in every case.
Loved before- not happy with update! 3/5
I am ready to get back on track with my eating healthy and drinking more water and LOVED using this app before. I know it takes a while to get used to updates but I absolutely do NOT like the new front page look. :(:( PLEASE let me go back to the old look! Easier for me to look, know and navigate with ease!
My go to tracker 5/5
Not only is this the best tracker, it sends amazing emails on health, wellness, nutrition, and so much more for the mind, body and soul. I LOVE this app!
New update ruined this app 2/5
A lot more taps required to get same inputs, can't modify or delete exercise entries. Frustrating. Needs fixing.
Go Back to the Old App! 2/5
I use to love this app. And then they changed it all. The old app was simple and the pie chart was the most important part for me to see that I was balancing my day. I don't want to hunt for it in a separate screen. Or scroll to see my day in calories. Options are also very limited to inputting my specific needs. It is grossly overestimating my protein needs to a point that would be unhealthy for my size. I'm not happy with the updated app and will be searching for something better. Basically, the updated app is crap. LIVESTRONG, if you're smart, you'd be listening.
Not bad 3/5
Wish more things were available to those who don't want/can't pay
Working great so far 5/5
Are used to have calorie count app, but it seems like it's been replaced by something else.
So I am trying this one and so far it's working good
