Love except.. 4/5
I love the app, the ease of tracking and the scanner. It recently freezes on the scanner and I can’t close or access anything on my phone. Can you please fix this? Thank you!
Can be finicky 4/5
I’ve had some issue getting stuck on pages. Also too easy to log to wrong date or go back a day to log something. The calendar scroll on one of the screens was also jumping around and would not stay on the day I needed
Fix this May 2018 update! 1/5
The last few updates have sucked. This is the most recent issue:
When you go to track a food, regardless of the day you are viewing, the tracker defaults to recording it for the current meal of the current day. This is driving me insane! I like to track a week in advance, and when I do, I select the day to view the food I’ve tracked for that day so far, and then add new food. It used to default to the day and meal in view. Now, it goes to the current day and meal. I keep on tracking things to the wrong day! Ugh! Fix this!
Now, here is my past review addressing the last big previous update:
This app is essential for me in my ww journey. It allows you to easily track food and exercise, and the barcode scanner is ingenious!
...BUT the new update is HORRIBLE! I wish I could go back to the previous version!
It used to lay out everything you ate, separately by meal, with points indicated per item on the right, and overall used points and points left on the top. Now they have a summary of each meal, without the points for each food, and if you select a meal to see details, you lose the overall points used and remaining display. I like to see every individual thing for all meals at once, along with the overall points, so I can play around with what to eat when to balance out the meals. The update makes this so much harder! There is absolutely nothing useful about this update. These changes are so stupid and pointless! Please change it back!
Tracking needs to be fixed 3/5
I’ve used the app for a year and loved it, but the latest update has made tracking much more difficult than it was. The time of day now overrides the meal I’m trying to track. So if pretrack dinner at 3pm the app adds the item to lunch and I have to edit the meal to add it to dinner, even though I’ve already tapped on "dinner". I also have to delete entries in the "add" field to add a second item. Didn’t used to have to do that either. Please restore the easier functionality!
Great APP for tracking your Weight Watchers progress. 4/5
Really like this APP. It has improved my tracking 100%! It will also sync with my Fitbit. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it does not seem to let me sync a previous day of Fitbit activity if I have forgotten to do so. I especially like the recipe building feature which allow you to track one serving of your recipe.
Food oz etc 3/5
I don’t eat the oz amount listed so your site could ya more than is real for me. Can you fix that?
Weight loss 4/5
I love this app, I do very well on it. This may be my third time using it and that is due to the fact that I “fall of the wagon” not long after I have reached my goal. One suggestion I might make is displaying micronutrients on it, in someway. I think showing the allowance of fat, protein, and fat, would be a great plus for this app and program.
Latest update issues 3/5
I’ve lowered my rating on this app due to some issues with the latest updates.
First the search on the food and activity fields don’t clear after you make a selection. Basically have to back out of everything rather than taking you back to your current day. This gets confusing.
Another issue is when updating a meal for an earlier day the app reverts to the current day which can cause inaccurate entries if not caught.
I hope these bugs get worked out. The app has been instrumental in the success of my weight loss journey! Overall still a good App.
What a breeze 5/5
Easy food tracking and accountability! Mahalo
Mostly OK 3/5
My biggest complaint about this app is that it automatically decides what meal you are tracking based on what time it is. I choose the specific meal I want to track, then as soon as I search something and try to track it for the meal I selected, it says nope, we think it should go here. Let me manually track my meal. If I want to track dinner at 11 am, just let me. Stop deciding for me what you think I should be eating when.
Does not clear search 3/5
After update, my app no longer clears the food search after you add item from list. It used to clear between searches. Very frustrating.
Activity tracker 4/5
I really wish it actually tracked my steps from my Fitbit it’s a hit and miss. Also I wish you could connect an Apple Watch
Helpful but also frustrating 4/5
By Which name?
This app has really helped me make healthier food choices, but it constantly defaults to the current day/time when I am trying to enter food for other days/times. For example if I go out with friends for dinner I might log things the next day instead of distracting from my time with them. I will select the prior day from the menu and begin entering foods, but even though I’d started by selecting a different date, the app logs the meal on the current day/time. It’s annoying to have to keep resetting this or editing foods that have been saved to the wrong day.
Great app! 5/5
The app is easy to use! I've had no trouble tracking my food and activity :)
I just thought it would if you could also track the water you drink in a day. This could help those of us who are hydration deficient
Really like it now. Did not at first bu once you learn how to navigate much simpler having everything within one app. Down 15 pounds in 4 weeks.
Really bad! 2/5
By Angry Burd
Aspects of this app are brilliant. Other parts not so much. The most aggravating is the fact that I cannot seem to correctly sync with an app from Fitbit. Over the course of a week, it dropped my fit points one day at a time starting with Sunday, then Monday and Tuesday. So even though I was over my fit points for the week, It showed that I was 9 fit points short. It’s just ridiculous as much money as they make in with their famous celebrity representative you think that they could get this app right.
Love the app ,have a suggestion 5/5
I love how easy the app allows you to find foods. I would like to be able to change my points-eg. I don’t always eat 6-8ozs of say meats and there is no way to change it to maybe 5points instead of what a 6 point serving comes out. I find I am being more satisfied with smaller amounts. But hey I have lost 40lbs so I am happy. Love the restaurant list also since my husband loves to go out.
Weight Watchers App 5/5
The app makes weight watchers a super easy to diet plan to stick with!
I wish the restaurant part was more user friendly. No all menu items are on the app. And the search part for searching up specific items isn’t useful.
Very helpful 5/5
Although I am still learning the app, I find it very helpful in tracking and finding point values.
Food Entry problem 4/5
It works great except in a few areas. When I go to a past date to record my diet it keeps reverting to the current time of day & current meal time. Every time I enter a past food I have to change to the past date and change to the meal time. I have to repeat this process for each meal item and it is very burdensome. I was thinking I did not have this problem a few weeks ago. Has something changed?
One stop shop 5/5
By Review Lou
This app has everything I need at one stop. Weight Watchers has really thought about what tools would bed needed and put it in this app. To include a bar code scanner that will give you the points of the item. I highly recommend Weight Watchers to those who are challenged with their weight.
Good and bad app 4/5
By Lollo Mo
I really like the app.
I would have given it 5 stars if everything worked.
I try to write what I had for a snack and it won’t take it. At all!
It goes to breakfast!
Also if I write on dinner what I had but the app thinks this is lunch, it automatically goes to lunch.
That’s not accurate!
Other than that (and I just started!) I think this is super good!
Although I haven’t used all the features of the App as yet. It’s definitely motivating me to get on board. I am working on tracking my foods consumed, And learning some things which are just not worthwhile at all. I’m doing better each week and hope to work myself off medication by loosing the excess weight.
Crashes and no Apple Watch support 3/5
When I try to edit a meal that I created it crashes in the edit screen. Please fix this! The activity section would be a lot more useful if it was integrated with the health app and the Apple Watch.
Overall works well 4/5
By Clydy clid
I generally feel the application supports my progress with the weight watchers program. However, I use a Fitbit and would like one feature added to the weight watchers app: the display of total calories consumed on the “My Day” view in addition to the points total. Currently, I have to manually calculate the total number of calories from each separate food entry. My Fitbit has a place where I can enter and track my daily caloric intake. It is useful information because it is compared to the calories burned for the day and shows the trending information over time. I am trying to become more mindful of the calories in and out equation, and I think this awareness would help me change my eating and activity behaviors in a positive way. Yes, I can manually add, but I am a busy person with limited time. Thank you WW team for seriously considering this enhancement.
Love this program! Just received my 50 lbs. lost charm! Also, I love my WW leader, Joni, in Hagerstown, MD.
By julzees grandma
Soooo easy b helpful
Great app! 5/5
I love being able to keep track of my points. Great app!
Fix Needed 1/5
Something is wrong with your app after the past couple of updates. If I try to enter meal information for previous days, it puts everything on the current day. Please fix this ASAP.
Not polished. 3/5
The food values seem to be all over the map. Free foods will sometimes be free and other times not.
The latest update busted the ability to update food from previous days easily. Everything will default to current day even though you are accessing the previous day.
I lost 30lbs with this app, but am going to go to a cheaper app that just counts calories and macros.
By Satisfied in WV
I find the barcode especially helpful in making the right food choices for me. Thanks Weight Watchers!!😊
Awesome WW App 5/5
Great app. Easy to use and very helpful to help manage your weight loss.
What a great help! 4/5
Love the support through this app and the counter!
May just be me but it keeps freezing when I use the barcode scanner. Still works I just have to restart it after scanning a couple of items. Other than that it is perfect! Thanks team!
Great app 5/5
Easy, convenient to navigate.
Dates and Meals and Such 1/5
Weight Watchers recently changed their app for the worst so that everything logs in at the current time, no matter which date or meal you start with. For example if you didn’t log last night’s dinner and you try to log it in today by tapping yesterday’s dinner icon, the app automatically puts it in in today’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner... depending on the time of day and how they have unilaterally divided up the day. If you have lunch at 11, the app will put it in breakfast for you. Oh wait! If you look for the proper boxes and scroll bars to check, you can try to move it to the date or the meal to which you want to log it—but the app will still often change it back to its automatic setting. These automatic settings are a nuisance and they have totally stupefied what was a good app.
Was stunned at how easy WW have made this! If I can use it anyone can!
Bugs with Getting Started 3/5
App continues to re-set a personalized assessment after it is completed, indicating that it is not completed several hours after it has been. Frustrating and tech support doesn’t seem to be able to identify or address the problem.
Like the app 4/5
By kay baber
I’ve only been using it for about a week but it seems to be really user friendly. I like the ease with which I can keep track of my points and the auto rollover is helpful. The scan barcode is great too.
I love the app, but the only thing I wish is that I could use it without a membership and just have access to foods and restaurants. I would even be willing to pay for this if a one time fee. I am on maintenance and don’t need the member ship monthly now that I am trained. Please consider making something like this available.
Great but there could be more 4/5
I love this app but I wish it also had trackers for water and measurements, and a way to keep an eye on nutrients.
Weight Watcher’s App is Essential 5/5
The app is so easy to use and keeps track of the daily food foods as well as one’s long term weight loss. Amazing to me are the variety of foods that the app catalogues. One’s exact foods can be calculated.
I find the app essential to my tracking food and therefore to my weight loss program.
Improvement idea 4/5
I would love if after I create a recipe, I could share it with another WW app user so they don’t have to retype the whole recipe.
The App is fine. It’s me! 3/5
By Oprahs homegirl
Joined when I have too too many things going on.... high school graduation, college graduation, niece’s graduation and family reunion. The first week, my weekly bank was depleted in a couple of days. I’ve been my size for a while. It’s not bad but it’s not my best. I would love to slender down some. I’m 5”7 wearing a 12/14. I can manage but I can’t go down in size. Would love to be a size 10 and stay there!!!!
Could use more user friendly updates 2/5
Still getting the hang of this app, but I’ve used MyFitness Pal for years, and the WW app is SO much less user friendly. More effort to plan food days ahead, more taps to track food, harder to see all your food for the day to manage and make changes in the fly, no run down of daily nutrition. ... Glad to have an app for the program, but needs improvements to really be flexible and user friendly.
Some problems 4/5
I love the app but just recently experienced problems with trying to add items onto the previous. No matter what I do it won’t let me go back a day to add on something I forgot to track the previous day. Also it has been switching my meal preference- I open the lunch meal and start adding what I ate to it and when I finish it adds those items to dinner because it might be dinner time! Very irritating to have to go back in and switch each item manually!
Best App ever!
I tried all kinds of ways to health. This app matches me best. I feel happier and more energy already.
Easy to use 5/5
By Cray C
There is so much great information and data in one place. The scanning function is fabulous.
Easy to use 4/5
This is money well spent so far. The app is fairly simple to use and has quite a comprehensive database.
