!!!!!!!GREAT APP!!!!!!! 5/5
I got this app to help me lose weight as I really didn’t know what factors to consider in regards to my diet. I downloaded it, entered in my information and goals and made an effort to be as accurate as I could everyday. The result after 4 months of using this app? 39 pounds and many inches lost!!! This is a great tool and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APP!
What are you waiting for? Download, use and lose weight!
Great except for calories burned 4/5
The app is very useful and is what I would expect from a calorie counter, and then some. My only issue is with the calories burned feature. It’s meant to take the pedometer data from the iPhone health app and calculate calories burned from there, but it’s incredibly inconsistent. I had walked about 4.5 miles one day and it said I burned over 4000 calories, and another day I ran 11.5 and it said I burned 0
Huge database of food. 5/5
By Stoney 97
I have tried different apps and this one has the best database of food.
I don’t like being forced to be public with user names and other information. I simply want to keep track of calories invested. I should not be forced to provide my email address or other information.
Sync issue 4/5
By Care for kids
Works good, but it often does not sync with my walking/steps recorded on health app.
Good app and easy to use. 5/5
By Nick Ibarra
Filled with ads, and cant control macros well.
Very good food tracker app 5/5
By Tony Krop
Use it to keep track of everything eaten. Like all the different graphs for tracking items like weight, calories, etc.
App isn’t letting me create an account
Its okay 2/5
It wont let you choose how many calories you WANT to have and I also accidentally put in a workout and it will not let me remove it so its off today
There is no automatic option
By The dream squad'
Simple, intuitive, and detailed 5/5
The app has a lot of great info available for free. It's the first time I've used one of these apps longer than one week. I'm not really a fan of keeping track of my food but this app presents my data in a way that makes me curious to compare data from previous days. Thanks and keep it up!
It average, the bar code detection not very good have to try many time half the time. Also the tracking feature does not stay locked have to reactivate almost every day and sometimes during the same day. Still somewhat an ok guide to track calories. Needs improvement.
I think age should be a profile category
Someone please fix this app/website! I’m not able to log in at all. I am so sad! Someone please work on it :(
Pretty good 4/5
It's does it's job, would recommend 👍
My Plate 3/5
The reason I gave this app the rating I did is because time after time I cannot find my food so when I go to enter my food and after I fill out all the details and select “save” time again I get the stupid dialogue that says “can’t save at this time, try later”. After this happens 4 or 5 times you lose interest in this app and wasting your time.
Not good for people who weigh food/accurate counting 2/5
I ended up deleting this app as soon as I downloaded it. It’s not ideal at all for people who weigh their food by grams. The serving size does not accommodate that and only goes to 20 or so.
Disappointed because weighing food is the most accurate way to count calories and what’s the point of a calorie counting app if you can’t do that? It’s a beautiful format but just not functional.
Going back to Fat Secret. I’ve tried all the apps and that one is still the best.
50 Pounds 4/5
Updated Review 11/17: Still works great for the most part! I've dropped a star because it turn of the motion tracking switch sometimes once a week or two week to some time multiple times in a day. Still inaccuracy syncing with the iPhone health app too.
Updated Review: I've used this for the last 3 years and still works great! I've been able to maintain my weight loss for the last year! Still sometime inaccuracy syncing with the iPhone health app though.
I've used this for the last 2 years. I've lost 50 pounds and this app helps keep me accountable! The only complaint is that it doesn't always keep track of calories burned accurately with the iPhone Health app.
Ok, not perfect 3/5
I love the graphs and tracking but am only giving this 3 stars because I can’t add recipes without having to add each item 1 at a time. May go back to my other app because I cook a lot of meals and need something that lets me build recipes and servings.
Just what I needed 5/5
It’s amazing how this tool not only tracks your caloric intake, shows the breakdown of protein/fats/carbs, lists calories burned using iPhone data, and more, but I’m finding that I eat less because I have to log everything (accountability) that I eat. Luckily this app makes logging everything pretty simple...while making it obvious how many times I reach for a snack.
Love it! 5/5
Very good app to track macros. Super easy to use and since it scans the barcodes of foods to pull up the information you can be very precise with servings. I only use the macro-tracking feature but absolutely love it.
Love this app 5/5
This app makes recording my intake of calories very easy and it also knows my steps. It works flawlessly. I love it.
Pretty good 5/5
Great app 5/5
So far I am really liking this app. I would buy if it wasn't a month subscription but rather a flat rate. I like that I am able to change my macros as wanted or needed.
Fitbit Compatibility 4/5
By A very amazed consumer
Hello! I started using this app and I had just gotten a new Fitbit for Black Friday sales. Once I started using it, I realized that it didn’t connect with the Fitbit app. If it’s possible, can you all add some sort of functionality with the Fitbit app? If so, that would be great.
Great app for weight loss surgery patients! 5/5
I'm loving this app for following weight loss surgery! Highly recommended!
Requires Facebook 1/5
By World Traveler 99
Should be a stand alone app.
Love it but..... 5/5
By Emerald t/c
I have absolutely loved this app. After years of not being able to lose any weight, I stumbled on this app. My life has been changed, I eat better, walk more and can still have room for sweets when I want. At 59, I now dropped 22 pounds and wear a 34 waist down about 5”. Here is the problem I have experienced recently. My walking calories are not registering which I really depend on. I had a problem with my iPhone 6+ when the tracking quit working. I got a replacement from Apple but was surprised to see that the walking calories still are not sinking up even though I have enabled it in the settings. Thank you for this powerful app!
Great tool 5/5
This app actually works, syncs with your Apple Watch for exercise/steps etc. I lost over 10 lbs using this app (with very little exercise) after my 2nd child.
Scanner still doesn’t work 3/5
By No emoji655576
Scanner is just a white screen.
By Dankest ever seen
Nice and simple to use, appreciate it.
Love this app but would love more integration 4/5
I love MyPlate! It has some of the best tracking tools and interface. The food library is extensive and it is easy to add your own food, not just the brands and restaurants that they include.
The only thing I would love is better integration with fitness tracking devices like Apple Watch, Fitbit or the like.
Loving it so far 5/5
I recommend it
By Shantele D.
This app helps me be accountable for what I eat. Sometimes it’s hard to be real and honest about what we consume. This app makes it easy. You just have to be dedicated and honest. The barcode scanner is so handy! It does the work for you. For example, I️ made a sandwich today and barcoded the bread, meat, and cheese along with the mayo and mustard. Hey, mustard has zero calories! Mustard on. ❤️
Amazing App! 5/5
An amazing app. Hard to find an app that so accurately helps me track my calorie count daily. Plus the addition of chat forums for advice as well as complimentary workout videos only makes it 10X better. I love it and it's really helping me in my journey to achieve my fitness goals.
Fast, easy & effective 5/5
Tracking is the most fundamental step to knowing what’s going on with my health and this app, and the website, make that task very fast for me. That means I actually do it and I can now correlate my caloric intake with the changes I see in my body and strength.
Dropping data 3/5
I would love this a lot more if it would stop dropping data; such as my iPhone steps. Sometimes it will stop counting my steps. It’s becoming frustrating.
Not quite 5 star worthy yet... 4/5
Love that your app integrates info from my Apple Watch and other sources.
What is truly missing and needed is time-stamp capabilities, such as available on My Fitness Pal Premium. I did purchase the Gold upgrade in the hopes this would be available, but it is not. I therefore must still use MFP. 😔
PLEASE add time stamp logging capabilities.
Can’t delete exercise 2/5
I love this app for calories and macro tracking but dear lord I cannot delete exercises, if I tap on it to try and delete, either the delete button is missing or it doesn’t work and every time I try it just keeps adding calories burned even though I’m not hitting “I did this”
Great app ! 5/5
This app is the easiest to navigate and best for keeping on track with calorie count. I started using this app after trying to use WW on line app which was horrible to navigate! Then I had a heck of a time getting reimbursed! This app is great!
Almost perfect 4/5
By Fernie mora
It’s a helpful simple and attractive app. I wish we could choose how many calorie we want as limit that day especially for girls who are in recovery or still inducing in ED culture other than that it’s amazing
Great for losing weight and keeping a food journal on the go
Great!! But.. 4/5
I turned to this app to get my snacking habits under control (and it's doing a wonderful job!) but I'm finding my entries for carbohydrates are fairly inaccurate because they don't take into account FIBER. Can you please make it track NET carbs instead of total carbs? That's the only thing keeping it from being perfect!
Great App! 4/5
This app is simple but effective, and their customer service is great. I was doing WW for 15 years and this is an easy transition from that.
Developers please review these suggestions to make this app even better!
1) Please add more precise measurements for portions. Perhaps let me put in a decimal/percent amount instead of my only options being 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, and 3/4.
2) Add an option to see how many calories I have remaining for the day annotated on the app badge.
3) Allow me to edit nutrition information I collect from a scan. Food manufacturers tweak their foods all the time but leave the barcodes the same, so at least one out of every two scans has data that is off. There is no way to edit it without throwing out the scan and typing it in manually.
4) The meal creator is great, but allow me to portion out my recipe, currently your only option is “I ate this”. For example, if I want to add seven ingredients for my favorite sandwich, and I decide to just eat half that sandwich I would have to log that I ate it then go into seven different entries to half the ingredients. Very impractical.
Great , easy, and to the point 4/5
Great app. Really helps to see what you are putting in your body and make better choices . Would llove to see daily motivation workout videos for your type of body and interest.
Love the app but settings reset themselves constantly. Motion tracking gets turned off very often. But more annoying was my goal was switched from lose weight to maintain weight. I blew past my calorie goal without realizing it thinking I had plenty of calories to spare.
Started Out Great 3/5
By Disnified Marge
This app worked great at first but then it stopped calculating calories. Sometimes it wouldn’t do it all and other times it would give me double or triple the calories. I reported it to tech support 2 months ago but nothing has been fixed. I miss the accuracy of this function as it has kept me on track with my eating. Everything else is great with the app. I hope they can fix this bug.
Good but needs tweaks 3/5
I like the app for keeping me mindful of what and how much I’m eating. However, it supposed to pick up steps from iPhone tracker and it is not accurate or does not sync at all. Please fix.
