Still doesn’t work correctly 2/5
I started using this app about a year ago, was so disgusted with its limitations that I deleted it and deleted my account as well.
Now, I have reloaded it and tried using it again, but they haven’t made any changes to its faults.
You cannot edit the names of the ingredients as you scan, which is a real pain because when you scan a barcode the app does not list the food in a sensible manner. For example: I scanned a package of Bubba’s Plain bagels, and the app listed it as “plain”, not “bagel”. If the app had a name editing feature, one could correct the stupidity.
Another issue that has not been corrected is in the “foods” feature, there is no provision for scanning a barcode for a food. And when you enter the name of the food in the search function, the app cannot find it.
These are just two of the shortcomings of this app and the website that I brought to the attention of the “MyFitnessPal” team over a year ago, and they still have not fixed a thing.
They apparently do not care about their users and this cumbersome ill functioning app.
I love the app, but… 2/5
It needs a mode for Keto to track net carbs, sugar alcohols, glycemic index, etc. In its current iteration it is difficult to do so. Thanks!
Issue with offline mode 4/5
I love this app and have been using it for years, but recently I’ve been having an issue with it automatically going into offline mode. I’ll be in WiFi or LTE, connected to the internet, and the app says I’m in offline mode and won’t load anything. Turning WiFi on or off doesn’t change it, and if I restart the app it will do it again. It’s just annoying because I can’t search for foods in that mode. Once that is fixed, the app will be perfect again!
The last update is full of bugs.. constantly crashes when trying to in put data. This makes one wonder if you all are doing this to get ppl to pay for the subscription upgrade. Fix this.. thanks
Problem with keeping me logged in? 4/5
Why do I have to login each day? It used to keep me logged in but now I have to login once a day even with I use my explicit credentials or the Facebook Auth.
Over one year later, still not syncing with Apple Health 1/5
I’ve emailed them several times, it’s a known bug for over one year. Sometimes it logs double the calories, sometimes not at all.
If you use Apple Health to track trends, MFP hasn’t worked properly with it for at least a year
Great app but issues with IPad Pro 4/5
I love this app, have had it for several years but when I try to use it on my iPad Pro it always gives me grief. Mainly, it only enters one food item at a time and every time I enter a new food it replaces the one I just previously added. It’s super frustrating and I know I can just keep using it on my phone but I’d like the option for both.
No longer be able to login with facebook 1/5
I cannot login to the app with facebook login anymore. Still be able to on desktop and I dont want to lose my info by registering a new account.
Was great but not adapting for the times (net carbs) 3/5
They need to adjust for the times and more people are looking at net carbs. I get there are varieties of net carbs but to me it is just carbs - (fiber) with an option to subtract sugar alcohols as well. Not extremely difficult imho
Isn’t working 1/5
By Vampire Chipmunk
I downloaded this app and it won’t let me sign into my account, and this won’t let me use the app at all.
Logs me off everyday now 1/5
I used to be able to open this app and go right into logging my foods and exercise etc. but since the last couple updates, I’m constantly being logged out, which means I’m constantly forced to login, a step that should not have to happen all the time.
I’m considering moving to another app altogether and get rid of this and all its companion apps as well.
Crashing and freezing 1/5
The current version is so frustrating with the constant crashing of the app; it becomes impossible to stay in the app for more than 4min.
Lost its luster 1/5
I used to love this app and to use it all the time (for years). I don’t know what they have changed but now I have to log back in a few times a week.
Grocery List 4/5
You should add somewhere to for a grocery list, I think it would be nice to have all of my meal prep in one place.
Used to be great 1/5
Not sure what happened within the past few weeks the app is unusable. To enter a meal I have had to restart the app 5 times because it keeps crashing. No response from their support and information on their help section about the issue. Started once their unable to connect problem arose but has since been resolved.
Doesn’t work with Apple Watch 2/5
It’s great with tracking, but doesn’t work with the apple workout. So having to put in information on it for my exercise instead of just taken it from the Apple Watch And the numbers when you type it in is t the same the Apple Watch is more accurate as it can read your heart weight. I am now looking for a new tracking app. The only thing it read is the steps. So this app doesn’t work for me
App has been constantly quitting on me and I paid for premium 1/5
This app has been constantly quitting on me for the whole year I’ve paid for the premium. It’s super frustrating. I have about 10-15 seconds from the time I open the app before it shuts down. I’ve reached out to the support team whoever responded
Gave me a list of things to “try”. I tried some of them w no improvement. Other items on that list just seemed
Like way too much trouble to use a service I paid for. Absolutely no other app on my phone does this.
Lots of bugs 2/5
Needs an update
Under Armor should be ashamed!! 1/5
I guess I had a trial period when I first reinstalled the app because I was able to find foods that were shared in the system. Now I have to type all the nutritional info in myself if I don’t have a barcode to scan. Deleting!!!
Really great App but has problems syncing with Health App 4/5
Best App for me to lose weight! Really great. I cant believe the database they have on food. Amazing. The only thing that bothers me that it has trouble syncing data both ways with the Apple Health App on my iPhone Xs. Sometimes my steps get logged in FitnessPal, sometimes not. My food habits do not sync from FitnessPal to Health App at all. I followed all instructions. I am positive all settings are correct. Would be great if the functionality would be improved, particular since I am thinking about buying an Apple Watch to track my workout.
Fix the login for the app 1/5
The app keeps logging me out. I’ve been a MFP user for 5 years and pay for the premium version. Every day I have to log back into the app, sometimes several times a day.
More micronutrients/micro minerals 4/5
I love this app but the addition of the full range of micronutrients/micro minerals would be awesome. Even if it is an option you can turn on or off.
Crashes constantly 2/5
I used to love this ap until started crashing every 30 seconds or less.
Won’t Stay Logged In 3/5
Something changed a few months ago and I now have to log in every 2 or 3 day. Very annoying. Please fix this! Nice tool, otherwise.
Keep getting logged out 4/5
It seems about 75% of the time I have to re-log back in
Will not connect online 1/5
By Dr Franco
Was using the free version of the prom. Upgraded to premium and now it will not connect online or let me add on any new food I’m eating. Cancelled subscription But it says I can still use the free trial until it expires but will not let me use any of the features of the premium part of the app.
Change in company software was change for worse. 1/5
Change in company software was change for worse. 3 weeks ago my fitness pal would sync and upload nutrition to my Fitbit. Now it will not. *Before, steps would be sync’d into my fitness pal, now it won’t sync.*Reported to my fitness pal 3 wks ago and no communication, in some black hole.
No net carb tracker 3/5
I generally love this app except for the fact that you can’t track net carbs. I figured it’d be a given since loads of people track net carbs now, but this app lacks that functionality.
Another thing I don’t like is that recently the step counter with iPhone stopped tracking calories burned so I have to manually type that in now. Why count steps if you’re going to make me type it in later?
freezing and crashing 1/5
awful. i’m just trying to improve myself but this app won’t stay open
This FREE app allows you to use it for a few days and than blocks items you were using to try and force you to up grade to the pay premium app. Use another app not this one
Great way to track food 4/5
I love using this app and I even pay for the yearly subscription. The app works really well and has just about every food that I look for. The only drawback I have with it is that it doesn’t calculate Net Carbs. I try to stay on a Ketogenic diet and it would be nice if the app could calculate net carbs for you.
Great when it worked - not reliable. 2/5
This app has gotten so glitchy. It refuses to work on my phone. I got so fed up after trying it for several months that I deleted it and started over with the Lose It app. It wouldn’t keep me logged in, wouldn’t work with my server (deleted app and downloaded several times, restarted internet several times, took it off internet—nothing worked). It also wouldn’t stay linked with my Fitbit. Tried logging in online, and it still wouldn’t. Totally not worth the hassle. Loved that it was free but NOT worth it. I’m actually paying monthly for the Lose It app and I couldn’t be happier.
I got logged out, then my login info wasn’t recognized, then the password reset isn’t working...? What did you guys do???
Great app... when it doesn’t crash! 2/5
The perks of this app are great, but the downside out ways them drastically. After the iOS update to 12, all the app can’t seem to run longer then 15 seconds before crashing out. Makes trying to log a meal very difficult to say the least.
Won’t open to the diary page 3/5
I don’t want to watch videos. Back to “Lose It”.
Incredibly Buggy 1/5
By Greg From Seattle
I used to love this app, but the most recent version is incredibly buggy. The app freezes, I get logged out, meals I log get deleted.I want to stick with the app, but first and foremost, the app needs to work. It shouldn’t take 10 minutes to log food because the app freezes.
I love the tracking! I love how it breaks down your food and how you can scan by barcode. Makes eating healthy so easy!!
Too many bugs 2/5
I used to love this app. I always tell myself I’m going to get the premium. But then new bugs pop up and I don’t feel like wasting money for something that won’t work. I have to log in EVERY time. It’s so annoying. It crashes constantly, which means I have to log in every time. I hardly even use it anymore. I tried to give it another go before giving up, but I may have to find something better. Used to be a great app, now you’re just hungry for that ad click money.
Love this app 5/5
This is a great app for keeping track of your caloric intake and expenditure! My Fitbit syncs with it and the best part for me is you can import your receipts off the internet and don’t have to manually add!!! Just a couple of clicks and my recipe from the Tasty website is uploaded, broken down into servings and I can immediately log it!!!! Super easy!!!
Very useful, however, every time I try to split screen progress pictures, or go back to the earliest progress picture my app instantly crashes.
It isn't what I call great but it's not terrible but you try to download it you might like it
My Fitness 1/5
I am very disappointed in this app. They must have changed the whole app because you were able in the past see the type of food and the calories. Even showed the size of serving. On this one now, you have to look up everything somewhere else and then record it in your food diary.
Amazing, but creating recipes is buggy! 5/5
I am so happy with this app. The amount of food that is already registered is impressive. Everything is great, but I have had a lot of issues adding recipes from the web. Right now, I’m getting a 500 error.
What’s happening? Fix bugs! great app otherwise 2/5
App syncing is always on and off, very inconsistent. Most of the time it doesn’t sync and gives server errors. Please update and fix bugs. Works well on laptop but not while using app on iPhone X.
not keto friendly 1/5
Horrible - I downloaded the app, created my profile, set my macros up, and started tracking foods....only to notice total carbs were being calculated!! 😳 Further research says MFP doesn’t provide the option to track net carbs. Deleted and uninstalled immediately. Carb Manager is way better for Keto followers!
My Fitness Pal deleted all my negative reviews 1/5
I lost 1129 days of diary entries. Today I’ve weighed the same for 1127 day. And I’ve never eaten anything in all those day. What a piece of junk
Desperately needs an update 3/5
I love this app for the huge food library but the actual app itself is so buggy it’s unusable at times. It crashes and freezes frequently whether I’m scrolling to previous food logs or even trying to log food I just ate. I constantly have to restart the app to get it to work properly. The feature that allows you to import recipes from the internet barely works and when it does it is way off. Also the design is getting old. It isn’t the worst thing in the world but there are so many other apps with beautiful interfaces. If I didn’t have years of history with this app I’d have switched to another tracker by now.
Database Issues 1/5
No longer finds foods I have added when creating a recipe and adding ingredients. Even when searching by the precise description they never display. Pointless and unusable without this.
Used to be good 3/5
By Dictionary user334455
This app was amazing but now it has become a source of frustration. Every time I click to open the app on my phone, it ask me for my password. Why o why can’t it stay logged in. I never remember my password.
