I have been using the app on and off over the past two years. It has made tracking my nutrition,weight, and exercise very quick and easy. Many of the foods I eat are in the system. Every now and then the barcodes I scan can’t be found or I have to search a bit harder to find my food. I like the option of creating my own foods and recipes
I would love the option to track net carbs
How do you...... 2/5
By Thinner. And happy
I’m just getting used to the app and found a huge problem, there is no way to make a correction, or at least it isn’t obvious.
Great App 5/5
This is a great app for tracking food. Thanks for making it easy for me to know what and how much I’m eating.
By Nightmare in CV
I made an error entering my password but because the setup wasn’t complete I couldn’t get the forgot password email. I tried to start from the beginning but you said the user name was already taken. I deleted the app and tried again, but no luck. I am moving on to another app.
Limited Keto use 2/5
I was told this app is great for keto diet so I paid for a year of gold membership. Found that I can not track net carbohydrates with this app. I requested a refund from Apple within hours of paying just to be told a refund is not available for this app. I’m not happy that I’ve paid for an app that claims to support macros but does not give the option to track net carbohydrates. I definitely will not continue my membership after what I have already paid for.
The scanner only works about 1/2 the time and it is extremely frustrating. I payed 50$ for all the features on this app. And the one I use the most doesn’t work a lot.
Sync with other Apps 3/5
Nice food tracker, however I wish we could sync it with other fitness apps. I don’t usually walk around with my iPhone so it’s Not accurately logging my movement.
It seems like a good app until I go to add a food that isn’t on any of the list. After inputting all of the information and clicking save it says they it can’t save food right now. I’ve tried multiple times and multiple things and it just keeps giving me the same message 😒
Cleared all my history... twice 2/5
Twice now I’ve had the app log me out saying there was an error and twice now I’ve gone in to find all of my past meals gone. Very frustrating when I’m trying to keep track of everything and then it dumps all the data I put in...
Has massive potential but not there yet 3/5
By izzy song
I love the look, feel and options of this app ... to a point. Where is it lacking? 1) When attempting to change my calories goal manually, it doesn’t respond right away and I have to keep fixing it; 2) When trying to set my carbs, protein, and fat percentages, it only gives me the choice of percentages in 5% increments, not grams and not smaller percent increments; 3) When the app calculates grams based on percentages while inside the goals section, the app rounds down (22.5 becomes 22). However, when the app calculates grams while inside the meal tracking section the app rounds up (22.5 becomes 23). I know I am a control freak and some people think these are minor things. But over one’s own body ... we all should be control freaks. If these things were fixed, it would be a most amazing app!
UPDATE: To change the calories goal, delete the old goal, click on the back button, then go to the calories goal again and put in the new goal. There’s a “set goals” button in the percentages screen, why not in the calories goal screen?
Lack of Flexibility 1/5
Response from the developer was that I can create my own workouts including calorie burns for the workouts. If I had this information, if I knew all of the calorie burns for my various exercises, what would I need this or any other nutrition / fitness app for?
Fortunately there are other, more sophisticated apps that can provide these types of services.
Why can’t I enter any workout data? I cycle, do weights, do aerobics, but unlike other apps, I can’t enter this information.
Struggling lately 3/5
I used to love this app but now it crashes all the time and when I get notifications I get like 55 of the same notification.....the app is up to date a long with my phone. I also feel like the scanning of items has become more limited....I’m inputting my own more and more all the time.
After the last update all my information was wiped out. There’s no longer any history of me.
No response given 1/5
I purchased the gold member and thought it would be $3+ a month. It immediately charged me $47+. I immediately emailed the customer stormer svc and 2 weeks later there’s no response or refund.
Been keeping track for a while! Love it 5/5
I discovered this app years ago and no matter what other app I try, I always come back to this one! I love how easily I’m able to make my own foods and easily find the things that I routinely eat! Love love love this app
Good concept, but... 3/5
By miss brown
Good concept, but the app is MAJORLY lacking in a few key areas that are deal-breakers for me. Here are a few pros & cons.
-Great tracking & syncing if Apple watch activities; regarding activities and the like
-Easy to read dashboard of calories eaten, calories burned, water drank etc
-Navigating the app had a minimal power curve
-Inability to see individual food items; only see a collection of breakfast, lunch or dinner. You have to go inside the app, to another page to see a list of food consumed
-The food doesn't allow you to modify the amount.of food... Everything is ONE SERVING; Doesnt take into account for ounces or pounds
-Everything is verified, but who verified???
I’ll revisit the app in a couple months for updates. But for now, I’ll be exiting stage LEFT & I’ll be getting on to the next one.
Never upgraded me after purchasing 1/5
Purchased gold membership-10 days later I’m still on a “free” member profile. I emailed a request for help and never got an answer. Unbelievable..really disappointed.
Pretty good! 4/5
By Mary the Scott
I really enjoy the ease of usimg it. It omly takes a moment to put imfo in.
I wish tgere was a place for daily notes, measurements etc. when your working out, its not so much weight that you focus on, but measurements. I wish there was a way to track them.
So frustrating! 1/5
App keeps logging me out and, hence, losing my data! As developers, you have one job on this app! Get it together!
Can’t log in 1/5
Hi, I downloaded the app and started using it, but suddenly I can’t log in anymore and I can’t even open the website page!! It’s keeps telling me ‘Login Error’
I really like the app and would like to use it.
Thanks in advance
Rating MyPlate 5/5
Very good app please add more dishes
Make it easier to make up new dishes-don't "require" all components of a food to enter it (my fav recipe doesn't say exact amber protein so I can't include it!
Include easy access to recipes directly from the food-tap the food-get a copy of the recipe!
Easy to use 5/5
The app is very easy to use and the scanning feature is super easy to load info.
App was very helpful 😊👍 5/5
I am about 5 2” and only 70 pounds my goal was actually to gain more weight because my doctor said it was getting very unhealthy. I gained more weight through this app. (Not bad fat weight but muscle and good fat weight) I am very grateful for this app because otherwise I might have ended up in the hospital!
You cannot delete your account 1/5
There is no way to delete your account do not use the app
AMAZING APP 5/5
By Listener Detroit
I Love this app. I didn’t realize how much Sugar, Carbs, salt, water, and the many other things this app shows you about your diet and nutrition, that I was consuming each day. Now that I am down to the weight I would like to be this app totally helps me maintain my health and my weight!
By Josalinda Marie
This app really helps me keep track I appreciate it! Only thing is I wish that there were no in app purchases. Otherwise pretty great overall.
Easy and fun 5/5
I enjoy this app. It does what I need it to do—count calories, and graph my protein, fats and carbs.
Great app! 4/5
I really like this app. It helps me keep track of my macros and has helped me lose a bit of weight since using it. The only reason why I didn’t give this 5-stars is because I can’t sync my Fitbit to it. Once I can sync my Fitbit, I’ll change my rating to 5-stars.
I used to love it. 1/5
By Recovering candy addict
I used this app daily and now I can not log in no matter what I do. I try and reset password and it still will not work. I have sent help emails and still no response. Im so disappointed with this app.
Everything You Need 5/5
I can’t imagine complaining about this app....
Huge database to choose from
Easily create your own foods
By 18 sueflo
I am diabetic and this app is so easy to use and helpful. Yay! Great app to track my carbs.
Give it a try...you will like it!
Logs you out and then forgets all your data 1/5
I’ve been trying it for over a week and it decided to log me out. I log back in and all my data got wiped out. All that mindless logging of food for over a week and gone. Never had this issue my myfitnesspal I’m going back to that app solely.
The Best 5/5
This is hands-down the best tracker ever. Packs a ton of info into an easy-to-use app. You can see your progress easily. You'll toss the others after using this. Give it a try.
Weight loss 5/5
By pen is land
This app is phenomenal for beginners all the way to the pros I’ve been using it for about a year now and am down about 35lbs great app!!
Great Food Diary/Calorie Counter 5/5
This app is very user friendly. I’m trying to lose 20 pounds or so and it helps keep track of everything. It even syncs with your Apple Watch to keep track of how many calories you’re burning and it subtracts from how many calories you ate. On a 1200 calorie diet and it helps visualize how much I have left to eat for the day.
On issue is that when using my Apple Watch, sometimes it double counts it or it also adds the calories record from my iPhone. Not sure if it’s a bug or something I’m doing wrong.
Great support! 5/5
I love how we can scan most foods to get accurate calorie counts. You can also add custom foods! This has helped me realize just how much I was over eating and target the foods that I had to stay away from. It also lets you track what nutrients you get in a day!
One feature I’d like added is in addition to the carbs, protein and fat tracking is to add sugar and fiber! Those two things are super important that I don’t think many people know they should track and would personally love to have it on a chart for my own peace of mind.
(Perhaps a daily recommended goal for male and female too but I know people can always ask in the community to find that out!)
Overall it’s great and can’t see myself not using it in the future.
Tracking food is easier than I thought it would be. 4/5
First time using an app like this and it has gone better than I thought it would. T Cali g food and meals is easier than I thought it would be. And I like the help with how many calories I’ve burned. Overall it’s all about burning more than you take in and this helps you track that. Thanks!
Good but needs another category 4/5
I’ve been using this app for a few days now and love it. It suits my needs and works as expected. I want to make a suggestion and see this in a future update... please put a drink category! I like the water category but I’d like to see another one just for other drinks so they don’t have to be put in the breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack categories.
I feel like I’m doing everything right, I feel skinnier and like I’m actually making progress
Wish could sync with Fitbit 4/5
I just started using this and it looks great, but it would be awesome if I could connect it to my Fitbit app so I would have to log my food and data in two places.
Livestrong 9 of the 10yrs!!!! 5/5
I love, love, love livestrong! I have been a member for 9 yrs and continue to utilize it. I find the library to be one of the most expansive for calories. I love the challenges and groups. I lost 135 lbs utilizing the app previously.
No shining points at all 1/5
I can not change the serving size after I determine it for the first time which is really annoying because I want to be accurate.
I’m considering giving it up.
Besides, I am trying to give feed back inside the app through email but after I finish writing, there’s no send button?
Love this tracker! 5/5
Keeps me aware of my daily intake, and keeps up with my fitness tracker.
Worked then didn’t 2/5
Issue with logging me off and now to the point where I can’t log in again despite resetting my password. Has potential, but glad I didn’t opt for the upgrade version
Loved this app, but lately not so much. 4/5
I started using this app a year ago and have been very happy with it. I’ve lost weight and have become more aware of what I’m eating. But the last two weeks I’ve been logged out a few times when I load the app. It wasn’t really a problem but when I logged in just now all my information was gone. It’s like I have to start all over :( Not happy.
Great until it asks you to log back in every fing week 1/5
Used this for 1 month and lost 10 lbs...it works great...except it now wants me to relog in now every 2-3 days. It forgets who I am. Really annoying! I bet if I link up my Facebook account or upgrade it won’t drop that credential (b/c they get data or money then!)
Tech issues 2/5
I cannot believe this app was rated 4.5. I’ve had issues with exercise tracking where if you look at exercise it adds it in and the calories burned is way too generous. It adds the calories burned to available calories for the day which will not help to keep track of what’s truly available.
C Naylor 5/5
I can’t get the login to work went through Facebook when I joined and today the app quit working and will not let me reload due to my email being on file I tried to get new password but the will not work either I love the app but today it is not working
Tracking made easy 5/5
I never imagined myself tracking calories to lose weight. It seemed like such a chore and impossible to find all the foods I eat. This app makes it so easy!! It’s also sync d with my Ihealth so all of my exercise get recorded. Losing weight has never been this easy.
