Early adapter that was ripped off 3/5
I like the app, but customer service is highly lacking. Very disappointed!
Paid early for many addons, now features that have been requested for years, like fitbit sync are behind a subscription.
Dont waste your time.
Disappointed with the update 1/5
I’ve been using the app for a few months and have enjoyed it and especially am happy that I’m seeing results. I was excited that Fitbit would be added on but now that it has been, I won’t be adding it because of the ridiculous price! $12/yearly?! Yes, that’s only $1 per month but on all other apps I have used, the Fitbit companion has always been free! I’m truly disappointed by this.
THANK YOU for integrating Fitbit. It was the one missing piece to your app. The $12 annual fee is well worth it for me. It truly helps me add the “move more” part of weight loss and maintenance! Thanks again!
I saw on your website that syncing to a Fitbit is coming spring 2018. That’s the ONLY missing link to this app. I really wish my activity would automatically sync. I’d even pay for that! Otherwise great app.
Great App 5/5
Update: this app now links with Fitbit so it's the ultimate package. Any "WW" plan can be used. It remembers recent foods and is easy to use. Read the how to guide in the chat area as you learn to use it.
Wish you hadn't changed Favorites 3/5
Liked the old way where I could add an item as a Favorites while scanning or manually-creating
I finally found a way to do WW Classic! 👌🏻 5/5
I hate the new plan WW Points Plus I was very successful with the old plan and this app allows me to track that way. By the way the community is amazing very supportive and active!
Love the app and support! 5/5
By Awesome man 217456
This is a great app to use if you like following one of the older WW plans! And their is an amazing supportive group on Facebook for all the users! Good luck to everyone using this on their weight loss journey!
Fitbit sync and categories and it's 5 stars 4/5
By Lobby my
This app is absolutely wonderful however, it is missing one or two capability’s and that is to sync my Fitbit so I know how many activity points I'm earning! Also, giving me the option to put my meals in the appropriate category! If it did these things 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 and categorize our food!
Love the app! 5/5
By "The dirt farmers wife"
I love the app use it everyday it’s so easy!! I do with that I could imput the activity from my Apple Watch to it!!! (That would be great future update 😉, I see your working on it for Fitbit)
Constantly updating new features 5/5
The team at a track bites continue to update the app without downgrading its functionality. Amazing!
My wife and I use the app and have lost a combined total of 32 pounds. In addition, my sugar is at 94!!!!!!
Love this app! 5/5
I highly recommend it for the people like me who did not like freestyle on WW. This app gives you the options to work with whatever program works for you!
Wish I could sync my fitness tracker 4/5
The ONLY thing this app is missing is the ability to sync with my iWatch. Other than that, it is the perfect solution for those who loved a former “version” of a weight loss platform that worked for them. This doesn’t require you to follow the newest and greatest plan available but whatever system you like best. Kudos iTrackBites!
Bad user experience 1/5
Bought as an alternative to weight watchers, based on pricing. Only to find out point values are not interchangeable. Instructions to cancel subscription were useless - option is not listed in Settings menu in the app, as listed in AppleID subscription details. Had to contact Apple for refund.
Love this app as good as weight watchers for less $$$ 5/5
Thank you for this wonderful app. This app has been a great benefit to help me lose weight without costing me too much money.
Love it so far! 5/5
I use to have Weight Watchers, however, it got too expensive at almost $20 a month. This app is a great substitute, with their plus program only being $2.99 a month. Regardless, I only have the normal program (without paying money) and it calculates its points based off of the things WW does. So, it is very affordable.
So much more affordable 5/5
I used WW for a month and cringed every time that $20 bill hit each month for a program that I’m not always using. For less than two months of WW I can have this year round. Thank you for making weight loss affordable!!
Where are the zero points? 3/5
When are you going to update the foods that should be zero points, like eggs? Weight Watchers did this some time ago.
Not Accurate 2/5
I switched from Weight Watchers to this app to save some money. NONE of the points are accurate. I was using the freestyle program- everything was showing wrong. Chick-fil-A grilled nuggets should be 1 point- they were coming up as 5 on this app, fruit cup- should be 0, 3 points here- bbq sauce, should be 1 or 2 points- showing up 0. What’s the point of paying for a app that doesn’t work?
Good Tracking Tool 4/5
By Krazy Qban
Been using for about 1 week and I have been pleased with the results. I joined the Flex Bites Pro for $35.99 a year. This tracking device is very similar to another well known app and works in very similar fashion. There are a few different point values for food and a few quirks that have yet to be worked out. Some of the restaurants on the list are different than the other system, but it’s a matter of adjusting. The recipe list is not as extensive. This tool is hard to pass up for $2.99 a month when you only need a tracker. If you know your foods, have a system and just need a good tracker then this is a good option.
Great app needs update 3/5
The app has been updated since my original review and it has definitely improved. I just canceled my weight watchers subscription yet again to try out iTrackBites version of freestyle which is called flex. I signed up for the monthly subscription to unlock flex and it stated there are over 200 zero “bites” foods now available. I know what they are since I recently had them on the weight watchers app, but yet again they are not available as zero bites foods on the list. How can you follow the freestyle with less allotted bites but not change the bites values in the system?!
I've been on and off using this app for about almost two years. I recently started back up last week and I realized why I stopped using it in the first place. Now don't get me wrong because this is a great substitute for paying monthly for the weight watchers app, but it gets to be tedious when you have to create a new food for something as simple as green tea. I think the app needs a wider variety of foods available in the pocket guide to make for simple searches along with an updated restaurant guide.
Great! I used the free version for a while and decided to upgrade. I have used it for about a year. It has had some glitches but when I reported the problems they have worked hard to fix them. I got my whole family to use It!
APP is inaccurate 2/5
My friend pays for the actual weight watchers app and we went to carvel and for a junior soft serve , CarvelLite vanilla, it is 9 points. I took the nutritional info from the carvel pamphlet and entered it into this app and it only calculated it to be 5pts. (The nutrition pamphlet and the real weight watchers app we’re identical)
I decided to check other food items as well and this app is 1-3 points less than weight watchers.
I won’t be using this anymore.
How does it work 1/5
I am not clear on how this app works. I am trying to track food and I keep getting a message that everything is locked and it looks like I have to pay?? What can you do on this app under “free” features?
Flex plan is NOT the same as WW freestyle 1/5
They are either misleading us or the new system is very buggy. Either way I really regret purchasing a pro plan :(
I was looking for an app similar to Weight Watchers. After reading the reviews, I decided to try this app instead. In 2 weeks I have lost 6 pounds. I have never felt hungry or deprived. If I splurge on something, I know that I will have to cut back at another meal. I have read that journaling the foods you eat is a great way to lose weight. This app makes journaling so much easier(especially with the barcode reader). The only downside is that it doesn’t give you a graph for monitoring your weight loss(hint hint). Can’t wait to see where I am at in 2 weeks.
Great app! 5/5
By Nonna Karen
Great way to follow Weight Watchers without having to subscribe to (and pay monthly for) their app. Very responsive to customer inquiries, too! Seems like a really good company. Love this app. 👍
I love this app! Weight watchers points plus worked so well for me. I’m so happy I found a way to continue to do that weight loss plan and also experiment with some of the other plans as well. Thanks again!
Do not purchase. 1/5
By Mikes Jammin Music
I have purchased the add ons and recently did a year subscription so I could use the flex plan. It is useless I can’t use the recipe builder or many other features accurately with the flex plan. I have sent four different emails requesting a refund as it is not working correctly. Do not buy, they don’t respond to questions or concerns with any answers.
Best Weight Loss App 5/5
I am an avid weight watcher and loved Weight Watcher’s smart point system! When they changed to the freestyle plan, I was truly disappointed. I am so grateful to find this app!!! After a few days I figured everything out, and it was easy to navigate! I highly recommend itrackbites!!!
Great App for Tracking Points 5/5
This app has helped me keep up with food intake and points, without the hassle of membership fees. Ten pounds lighter and still tracking. Love it!
Great app but 2 things lacking 4/5
This would be 5 stars if it added: synching to Fitbit and taking food by meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
Wish there were divisions for meals 3/5
I think this is a solid app, I just wish meals were separated vs all together in a list. For example breakfast, lunch, etc.
This app is absolutely amazing. I just started today and I already upgraded to the pro since there is more features like the recipe builder and searching for the foods those are the two that I really need. I just love how many options there is for all of this great app thank you. But you can still use the community with the free version cause I was able to before I upgraded 3 days ago.
Surprise full year charge to your credit card 3/5
When you purchase the pro for $2.99 a month you need to be aware that they charge your credit card for the entire year. That was NOT disclosed upfront.
Car dealership 1/5
By D Hawk
Don’t really have anything to say about this new version except that the “PRO” icon is still setting on the home page like a car dealership sign. Pathetic. There are actually quite a few articles on apps like these.
Love This App! 5/5
I love the iTrackBites app. I have lost 20 pounds in 13 weeks without feeling hungry or deprived. My husband has lost too, but I’ll let him write his own review ;)
I’ve never been on Weight Watchers, but from what I understand this works in a similar fashion. If I know in advance what I’ll be eating, I put it in my tracker and adjust serving sizes so that my points come out right and then I only eat that much. It’s very simple and keeps me mindful of my portion sizes.
This is the best $12 I’ve spent in a long time. I can see no reason why I won’t stick to this program.
Basic app good-don’t upgrade to Flex subscription! 1/5
By Grace Deen
The basic app is great-you can do your WW program for little cost. I made the mistake of upgrading to get the new Free Choice program called flex and it is a waste of money. You can put in free points like beans but when you scan a free item, it has the old points. You can just customize in the regular app and add the free items with a zero point. In other words, the annual subscription which automatically renews (this yr they offer a discount but who knows what it will cost next yr) adds nothing new. And once you click install, you can’t refund even if you immediately realize the app is a waste. Sorry iTracks, I was a real devoted fan until this upgrade!
Greed took over 1/5
The premise of this app was always paid add-ons to an otherwise free app if you just wanted the basic weight loss plan itself. All of the weight loss programs on here are free. I waited and waited for the new 2018 changes, and when they finally came they were part of the paid add-ons instead of being a base part of the app like the rest were.
After waiting this long for what I expected to be included, then have the bait and switch, I’d rather pay Weight Watchers the 4x amount they charge than give iTackBites a dime. If I had known up front they were planning to charge for the program, and deviate from the current format of the plans being free, I wouldn’t be so behind on my diet now... I could have been using the WW app all this time instead of holding out for this new feature.
Needs a lot of work 2/5
This app is good in theory but foods are way too difficult to find in order to track. Found myself having to create nearly every food I ate. I need something easier to use with my busy lifestyle. Because of this I deleted the app.
Anyone having a problem with the upgrade?
Mine didn’t work.
The new version is great 4/5
The new version keeps all the great old stuff, with the option to upgrade to get even more new features.
Good Option 4/5
I was thrilled to find an app that was similar to the old weight watchers plan. I prefer the old points method. This works great for that. So far the camera and other guides are working together nicely. I had some issues getting access to the bundle I previously purchased. They worked with me until it was fully restored.
Great app 5/5
Great app and way cheaper than WW
SCAM! Beware!!! 1/5
If you choose to upgrade they charge you way more than the price they advertise! You are forced into paying for a YEAR. And they don’t respond to customer service complaints. How is this even allowed on the App Store?
I did contact support and they said to contact iTunes support, but iTunes suggests I contact the developer because it is billed through a third-party, not iTunes... I responded saying this and have not yet gotten an email back.
For what it’s worth, the yearly fee must have not been made clear or in tiny print* because I absolutely would not have purchased it. Whatever it is, if you can ONLY purchase a $35.99 12-month subscription and not a single month, why don’t you just be up front and list the price as $35.99 rather than $2.99?!
I rarely purchase apps. in the first place and when I do, if it is a subscription I would only purchase after having tried it. This is extremely frustrating and disappointing.
I am updating to a 4, based solely on the fact it took roughly 2 months to fix the issue. Outside of that it has been great, I am down over 15 lbs with minimal effort on my end.
Purchased the pro app and it doesn’t work. Acts like I didn’t just spend $30 on it. No phone number to call. Submitted 2 help tickets but when I try and log in to see them, it says access denied. That’s some fishy stuff.
Updated 4/12- I got a refund from Apple long ago. I wasn’t about to pay for an app that I literally could not use until you guys got around to fixing the issue. Seems like some people waited months. Terrible customer service on your part.
For the price....! Go for it! 4/5
For the price, a great weight loss companion! The only request I have is, better syncing with activity. I have my Apple Watch connected as well as Nike+, and I still have to manually input my daily activity (which can become cumbersome at times). I’d like to see that fixed so I’m not putting in more work (which can dissuade me from using the app) when I want to account for my activity.
Pros include, a large database of food and restaurants, daily diary, daily health checks, easy input, accurate barcode scanner.
I prefer Weight Watchers Points Plus to the current program. This app allows me to track in that program. I do wish it separated meals.
Poor user interface and search 3/5
Lots of different libraries are available for purchase. You think that you would be able to search all of the ones you have access to simply. Nope. You have to go into each separately and hunt for things.
