No standard USDA database, just shoddy info from average people.
Love this app!!
I’ve been searching for an app like this for awhile now! It does cost $3.99 to upgrade, but compared to most similar apps, it’s a one time payement rather than a subscription which is great! Tracks so so many micronutrients, has lots of information about each nutrient, let’s you add custom foods and recipes. Great user design and super helpful. This app definitely works better for those who don’t eat a lot of processed foods, but if that’s you then I would definitely recommend this app!
Exactly what I wanted, but...
I was really excited to get this app but after about 6 months of use it stopped allowing me to input daily meals. I keep getting an error message each time I try to “Eat” and item. The error message reads, “Oops, Cannot modify user HEuuMEy3qR,” whatever that means. I paid for the app and would like to use it but if I can’t I may just delete.
Hopefully it will get better
Obviously it’s hard to contend with a powerhouse like MFP and I think there are great things about this app: the fact that it accounts for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester pregnancy nutrition, whole nutrition, sort foods by color, the ability to input vitamins by mcg/mg vs percents, excellent recipe ideas. I am just rarely able to find the foods I eat on the app because not enough users have used them before. I wish there was a “recently eaten” category. I wish the interface was a little more intuitive. $3.99 isn’t a terrible price, but until there are some improvement, I don’t think I will use this as my daily tracker. What I’ve done is used the wholesome guidelines for my 1st trimester nutrition needs and mirrored them into MPF... it’s a hassle but it works.
Needs customization tool

This is a good foundation for a nutrition tracker app, but there are several several foods missing (breadcrumbs, chicken sausage, etc). Please add the ability to input own food/nutrition info of those foods/picture. I will upgrade my rating then! Thank you!
It should be able to scan food items

...that’s the only trying it needs in order to be better than MyFitnessPal
This app is horrible and I need a refund ASAP
I bought this app for my human nutrition school project. The app never gave me any of its premium features after I paid for it. It has been over a week, I still have no features after restoring the app, deleting it and reinstalling it, trying to buy it a second time, and emailing the app creators about it. My card has been charged, I am disappointed and I want my money back. I am hoping they will email be back finally after seeing this review. Do not buy.
Best app I’ve ever purchased!!
This app is much needed...and so well thought out!! Any nutrition tracker apps I’ve seen are only for macros (protein, fat, carbs, sugar, etc). But I’m not interested in those....They’re so easy to track on your own anyway. The thing I was looking for was something to show all the micronutrients like vitamins and minerals. And that’s what this app specializes in.
This thing is phenomenal. It has a great selection of food when you’re trying to input food into your diary. But the things that blows me away the most is the attention to detail and the user-friendly interface. Any nutrient you are curious about, you can click on and it will bring you to a whole page of information like what it does for your body, what the signs and symptoms are of deficiency and toxicity, what foods are high in said nutrient, etc. And the whole foods like an apple or spinach even go into further detail and you can click on the “tips” tab and they tell how to select them at the store, preparation, cooking, and much more!
Bravo guys!! This is truly a fabulous app!! <3
As someone who paid for the pro version, I expected this to be my to-go app for reviewing my intake of nutrients. Unfortunately, the app is fatally flawed in calculating nutrients based on user submitted data. I told the app a certain cereal I eat contains 10% of one’s iron needs based on a 2000 calorie diet with a 58 gram serving. I then told the app I had eaten 78 grams of the cereal told me I had eaten 30% of my iron needs. I’m most certainly not a tiny man who only eats 2000 calories. The app clearly has a bug in its calculations. When the app is finally fixed I will change my review because other than that it does what it says it does.
Not not very organized/ limited food library in their system
By Virginia Veale
I had to spend a lot of time inputting food data as their library is limited
I don't find this app very organized. It is hard to go through your days worth of input/ food eaten because it is not divided by meals (lunch, dinner, snacks etc) but rather all the food is lumped together over the whole day.
I stopped using it after a week and got a different app where I could really see my daily inputs organized and understand them.
