How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

1.0 out of 5 stars useless non-working app August 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
OMG - really? so I would like calorie counts for a low cal diet - not available. I would like carb counts for a low carb diet - also not available, No nutritional information is available. Ok how about tracking my weight over time... Looks like I will be able to enter my weight and chart it... sounds good, right? Oh wait - when you go to the menu to enter a weight, you get a box with a question mark, but no keyboard, so you can't enter your weight. Conclusion, this is a massively useless app. Good thing it was the FAOTD - I would be screaming if I paid for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars no calorie counts!! September 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
I tried to use this, but didn't like the format. It didn't have a way to record calories, either. Even though I bought it, I deleted it, because it was not easy to use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Talk about a battery drain September 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
I didn't even get to try this out within 6 hours my phone was dead. With it off I charged it and with in 2 hours it had drained 26% of my battery. The only thing I had changed was putting this on my phone I didn't even get to try it out that's how bad this was. I removed this app and in 2 hours the battery only went down 3%. I normally get 30+ hours on my phone before it needs to be charged with this app it kept the phone awake the whole time and killed my battery. So please beware of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple but didn't work for me October 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
I've heard that if you want to lose weight the biggest tool can be to track your progress (with what you eat and how you exercise). At my work they hand out habit trackers to encourage people to get healthy. I thought this would be a suitable replacement but it is very tedious to track everything it wants you to. I found it to be too time consuming to be beneficial for me. I'll stick with the habit trackers!

A program that is virtually useless. It counts no calories and proposes multiple diet plans based on strange concepts. Diet programs are like cleaning your body, crazy about fruits, feed your muscles, I feel good, loving fruits, soup lover, and salads are great.....

If you touch an item on the menu sometimes it will tell you what it is and how to prepare it (Very general instructions). Sometimes it will tell you the portions and details, nutrition info and provide a list of possible replacement items to choose from. The app seems to do what it wants when it wants and I could not figure out the logic of the app.

Finally after opening the app a dozen times it popped up with buttons for my diet, diet plans, graph, profile and weight entries.

It asks that if you want to post to twitter you can download another Diet Assistant program to add into this app. When you download it the twitter portion overwrites the original app and will not run unless you add your twitter account information. When you uninstall the twitter portion you have to reinstall the diet app again. The pop up for twitter is a free gift! (just joking) If you don't tell it not to pop up it will continue.

Permissions:
* modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
* full network access
* prevent tablet from sleeping

The app installed 1.9MB into my device memory and it is non transferable to my SD storage. So why does it have the permission to write to SD storage?

1.0 out of 5 stars huge disappointment August 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
No calorie count. Unrealistic meal ideas. Most "menu plans" do not come close to regular food pyramid standards, and there are no substitutions or alternatives for things you may not like to eat. This app needs to add options or alternatives for what real people eat. Un installed the first day.

A real dietitian would share their credentials, so that we would have an idea as to their credibility. Where did you go to school? What clinic do you work for? Have you written any books or papers, participated in studies, etc.? I'm pretty sure a professional dietitian would also know the difference between "loose" and "lose". Even if this were a polished, professional-looking app, we still know nothing about the qualifications of the people behind it. If you want to take nutritional advice from random strangers, you go right ahead, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is a shoddy, questionable app built by someone just trying to make a quick buck. Don't fall for it.
