It really helped lose weight
Good tool, so close to great 5/5
Update: Just figured out how to pretrack days in advance so 5 stars it is!!!
So far I’m really enjoying the itrackbites app. The reason for not giving 5 stars is:
1-I’d like to be able to track in advance, like a day or 2 ahead.
2-the scanner is very picky! Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 tries to get something to scan.
I regret buying a subscription. There’s no list of 0 point foods on the site or app. Apparently you just have to scan/search and hope it’s 0 points.
Suggestion. I liked the layout of the older version where all the numbers. Used, remaining and weekly allowance were all the same size font. Now the remainder point daily is is super large font. I tend to motivate myself by the points I used. For example if I had reached 22 points that day if my allotted 35, I will stop eating points. Now it shows the remainding points and this tend to make me want to use up all my points.
Otherwise it is great app and I have lost 75 pounds since June of last year.
Wonderful FREE App 5/5
Works so well..... No need for the WW app 👍🏼
Love this program 5/5
I’m really loving this. It’s so easy to use and very doable.
4star for free version. 3star for paid 3/5
Great features for free. 4 stars for free version. I am used to tracking macros. Upgraded to $35 *a year* (not one time. A year!)
I would think there would be a way to display the calories AND macros. Wastes time to have to go back to settings and change it every time I want to see how many calories I’ve eaten.
Why not display how many grams of each macro I’ve eaten? If I’m trying to keep my carbs at a certain level, 62% of 145 grams means nothing to me. For $35 a year, I don’t want to have to calculate how many grams I have left.
A suggested feature would be the option to save foods, as “Save as New”. Such as 1 tablespoon or 1 teaspoon of my brand of Ghee. Saves time not having to change serving size on frequently used foods.
Also, a way to search the forums???
Go for the free version unless you must have and idea of your macros. I got tired of entering iTrackBites for my points and Stupid Simple Paleo app for my macros so I upgraded ... but I still don’t know how many grams I have left to eat of each macro. I can eat 26 points of potatoes every day or 26 points of bacon but I won’t be healthy or lose weight. I need a break down.
Next year, I will most likely print my logs for point values, cancel iTrackBites, and use Stupid Simple Paleo with logging my points on paper. The % left on the macros is no help to me for staying on track on a busy day.
Best app!!! 5/5
This app has been so very beneficial. I love it!! So happy they updated this app!! Loving this
As good as weight watchers 5/5
Works as good as weight watchers but without the price !
I track bites classic points 5/5
Allows me to use classic points.
I started using iTrackBites in November of 2017. I’m down over 100lbs as of today! It really does work as long as you put in the effort. I had done WW in the past but always left because the cost was just too much for me. This is an amazing alternative. It takes a little playing with and tweaking to figure out all of the details, but so worth the few dollars that it costs. ITrackBites was literally a life saver for me. I feel and look amazing because of it.
App ease 5/5
Great app easy to use. Great way to follow WW without the cost.
Great App 5/5
By Holly aw
Great app if you like the weight Watchers app....but free and better! What’s not to love about that. I feel I will reach my goals with this.
It’s very helpful. 🤗🙂 5/5
When I log in on my food 🥘 diary 📔 most of the time it knows what it is. So It’s very helpful. 🤗🙂So 5 stars ✨ for sure. Sarah Star ⭐️
Works good 5/5
By TamC ")
Only been using for a few days, really easy to use. Good app
I have been using this app for two years now and it works! 5/5
As someone who is frugal but also wanted to lose weight I couldn’t pay for WW. This app is everything you need to do WW programs but for free! It keeps me accountable and motivated.
Delete foods with iPhone 4/5
ITrackBites would be great if I was able to delete foods that I no longer need listed. From what I understand you cannot do it from an iPhone
Thank you 5/5
This helps me easily track my meals with out the cost of other programs .
Add restaurants food list with points 3/5
Allow more than one selection before exiting link
List points for restaurants by point range I.e.
By Determined PSH
Just like WW but free.
Emails back n forth with developers for refund, they give you every excuse possible! Half of the food items I scan I end up having to manually enter them into the system cause they aren’t found, the Apple Watch setting is via the health app on phone and doesn’t properly log my activity. I just want my refund back, they continue to play games on this issue. Planning on reporting the company and developer if not resolved
New update is better 4/5
Since my previous review I have now been able to access my previously purchased content, which has made the use of this app much better.
Great program 5/5
By App engine
This program is just as good or better than Weight Watchers and sooooo much cheaper.
Need more food groups 3/5
By more food groups
Very good on most foods, but not all yet
Like it a lot 4/5
Good deal, low price for pro. It takes a while to learn it. I do wish there were more instructions on how to use it for beginners. Still have a little issue with 0 pt foods, support is great on all areas, it is a keeper
A great tracking resource 5/5
This has taken the place of the Weight Watchers app. I didn’t like the new WW program and someone told me about this app. I could go back to the old program (and even older ones) and keep on track. This app seems to be easier to use, has more restaurant items, plus more everyday items. It also allows me to connect to my Fitbit and keep track of a variety of exercises. I will continue to keep this app as long as they keep with updating and keep all the useful tools. Thank you for this great app.
I’m down ten pound in just over a month and it is SO. EASY. I have tried weight loss plan after weight loss plan and I could never stick to anything. This is so worth it and so so soo much cheaper than Weight Watchers. I’m eating real food, and drinking beer and wine. This plan accounts for all of it. I bought the yearly plan and am currently on flex. Best meal plan ever.
Great app that could use some improvements to be even better 4/5
Love being able to track all the healthy habits and the overall “feel” of the app. However, I switched back to my previous calorie tracking app because of the fact the other app connects to my Apple Watch and automatically tracks my workouts that way. I really wish this app would be updated to connect to Apple Watch and I would start using it again.
Food database needs a little more work too but I can work around that part...just really hoping for the Watch update! 🤞🏻
Great app 5/5
Similar to another popular app that cost waaaay more. This is a great way to track points
This is just like the WW app. Love it! And if I don’t track for a few days I don’t feel like I’m waistline money. Just supporting my goal when I can!
I’m not paying again 1/5
I paid for the extra stuff before the update and now after the update I have to pay for a subscription for something I already paid? So what was the purpose of me paying for something if I have to pay again for the same exact thing? Where did my money go? Do I get it back?
Back to being a great app 4/5
By Uul - really
With the current version, this is back to being near perfect. It’s easy to search for foods that aren’t yet in your favorites.
Only big change I’d like to see - let me check off multiple foods at once to save the time of the delays after each is recorded individually. It’s too slow doing one at a time.
Great but.... 3/5
I love the app and its functionality, but I would really love it if my Apple Watch workout and steps data could be synced with the app as well. Please add this as a later update. I’d happily pay for the feature. Thanks!
So frustrating 1/5
I bought this app trying to start up weight watchers. It was great until I decided I wanted to track calories and pay attention to my macros. When i go in to set my calories it will not allow to make the correct macros for the calorie allotment. If I eat the amount of macros it gives then I’d be 400 calories over what I should be. So nothing will ever be even. So I have to manually figure out each macro to make sure I’m in the correct zone I want to be every day and it’s frustrating after spending money to buy the app. I’ve reached out to the developer twice and have yet to receive a response. Don’t buy this app if you want correct information.
Helps me out tremendously 5/5
I love this app! I use it to track the intake of how much I eat.
Worst customer service ever
Best substitute for WW app 4/5
By Grandma Geri
The app is awesome. Got me back on track with Smartpoints since WW went to Freestyle which has no portion control. I gained 25 lbs. back. I’m hoping this app can help me succeed again. Also the price is right since WW jacked the price for their app to $19.95 a month and can’t be used unless you sign up for program again. I would have given 5 stars but the app doesn’t sync to my Apple Watch for activity points. If you sync my watch I will review again.
Ww better 5/5
Ww the way I lost weight
ITrack Bites 5/5
It’s great that we have Itracks since WW has abandoned all the older plans. This way we can choose what plan we want to follow.
Diabetic My Plate / Calories 5/5
I’ve been using itrackbites for over a year and I absolutely love that all the old plans are available, I have used each one with success. Recently I was put on a diabetic meal plan and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to use the different bites plans. But I was able to switch over to calories and it totally worked with my dietitian’s recommendations. My only suggestion for the developers is to please add the ability to track macros for calorie counters. I am limited on how much protein and carbs I can eat. Otherwise WTG itrackbites!
This is the easiest diet app I have ever used. 5/5
By Watsie's Mom
This application is so easy to use I actually use it. Most common foods are there and if not you can add them quite easily. I would recommend this application for anyone who wants to keep track of the calories without actually counting calories.
Worth the pro price! Similar to WW but a fraction of the price! 5/5
I’m somewhat new to the app. I tried the free version first before deciding to come back to this one. I even decided to pay for the paid subscription which was a great deal compared to weight watchers.
It’s point system is very similar to weight watchers but not identical. I’m okay with that - there is more than one way to skin a cat!
Love iTrack Bites 5/5
By lola fluff
I find it easy to use and easy to track.
Great App-Easy to follow.
Weight Tracker app 5/5
By Susan monters
You are great. I love being able to post pictures so that all of my friends can see them. You really do have a sophisticated system for getting commentary, DMs, and follow requests to me very conveniently. You are seriously the best as far as media goes.
Good app 5/5
Good option and cheaper than WW 4/5
This app is great once you understand how to set it up for the program you want. I love that it lets you set a secondary way to track...like calories in addition to Bytes. I only wish it had more scanned foods already loaded. But I’m not complaining. Love the app!
Love it 5/5
So easy to use.
Happy Customer 5/5
I love this app.. This new version is so much better then the old! How can you not like an app that lets you count calories and points at the same time. Now I’m just waiting for my Apple Watch to work with it.. And it would also be cool if the calories and points could flip flop placement on the app.. Good job iTB
Oh also being able to “Follow” certain people would be great too!
A future thought, the lose it app lets you pay a one time fee to become a “Lifetime” member (pro) Consider it and folks like me would love the savings/deal...
