  • Incomplete

    By Stinklestein
    I just purchased the Pro edition but it still doesn’t have info on best nutrition sources or health benefits when you click on some of the vitamins and minerals.
  • Love tracking Micros but...

    By Yira0667
    Great app and it’s not free which surprised me when I realized I could not simply scan foods not in the database. I don’t like entering a food from scratch. Even free food tracking apps have a scanner... that’s all I want :-) thanks.
  • Useful but could be better/lost sign in

    By Criado too
    I use this to track calories and some specific nutrients. Importing data could be improved including typing data into a computer rather than a handheld device. (Allowing landscape entry would help!) A pantry feature would improve "what to eat next" by using what one has on hand. That could include, as a separate pantry, menus from common restaurants. A pantry could be used to suggest recipes. A planning day(s) would allow some what if scenarios to do longer range "what to eat next". UPDATE For quite some time, I cannot sign in and password recovery is not working. This, all my foods and recipes and data are lost. UPDATE 2 No help from Wholesome and it has been many months. Speaks VERY poorly of the humans behind the app.
  • If Only it Worked Properly

    By loveagoodgirl
    This app has THE BEST healthy and FLAVORFUL recipes and most of them are so quick and easy to make.! The only thing that doesn’t work would be, recipes never saving to my favorites.
  • Not What It Advertises

    By holmes_rex
    Never synced with Apple HealthKit. Keep having to go into account settings and reconnect, but still never shows nutrients in HealthKit. Disappointed. Not worth the $4 yet
  • Amazing app, but would like to see local storage of data

    By NOStradomuz
    Really great app for tracking vitamins and mineral intake. I bought pro. The only problem for me is that it's all online. Would like to see a local data storage option.
  • Vegan

    By Kutebykari
    I wish there was a vegan option so the dairy and egg suggestions would not be on my list.
  • Downloaded, super interested, bought pro, never worked.

    By Flavie421
    Disappointed. I got this to try out and when I saw all it claimed to do, I bought the pro version. Upon reopening the app, logging in, and clicking a pro feature, it prompted me to purchase again....very frustrating. I’ve emailed the developer and requested help or a refund and have heard nothing. Account was charged, that I know for a fact.
  • Wouldn't let me Add Anything Unless I pay for the upgrade

    By aiha
    I tried to add food to the diary and it would keep telling me to pay for the upgrade. There was no option to say no. And now, I can't delete my account. Each time I press "delete account" and click "yes" it does nothing. I still see my account information and e-mail. This is a horrible app. Myfitness pal, cronometer, and loseit don't have the same issues. Use one of those apps instead.
  • Optimistic but disappointed

    By Passionate about Nutrition
    I have not come across an app so thorough and useful for tracking overall nutritional intake as this one. That said, to be useful it has to allow flexible, user-friendly units of data input for foods and it is sorely lacking there; I.e, 1/4 cup vs 1 T of pesto. The next problem comes with entering recipes. The above issue immediately manifests itself, but it also must all be done manually, one item at a time where other apps have website integration that make it a snap. (It says it can do this but has a bug and does not work). Also, editing a previous ingredient cannot be done. It must be deleted and added back in again. Finally, it fails to offer a standard user-friendly function... scanning of labels. I can't use this app and I paid for it. Love love love the nutrition component and how it looks for gaps and makes recommendations for nutrients no other app considers. Please fix this app! I want it to work!
