3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but with drawbacks February 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
New Year - weight loss. ugh. (yeah, I am getting started a little late - don't judge!) I downloaded four free apps to find the best one to help me manage my plan: Calorie Counter (this one), Calorie Counter & Diet Tracker by MyFitnessPal, Diet & Food Tracker by SparkPeople, and Lose It! by FitNow. You'll probably see similar reviews to this one on each of those products.

Wow this app is good - especially to be free. Some of the better features are recipe suggestions in line with my desired weight loss plan and LOTS of pre-programmed foods from restaurants & grocery stores. However, I found a better app for me (also free) which is the Lose It! app.

Lose It! allows you to add in foods that aren't just those pre-programmed from restaurants & groceries, which is not an option with this Calorie Counter. Let's face it, every food in the world will never be in one database, so having the ability to add stuff is more realistic than expecting to only eat what Calorie Counter can account for. Being able to create your own foods & recipes allows you to expand the food database outside of the created app and really make it work for you. This alone makes Lose It! the better app for real diet tracking.

I also downloaded a companion app that is a restaurant calorie counter, so I can accurately add in those foods I eat. I really think I would have had to do this with any of the apps to really get accurate info, but again, I could not have entered the foods in this Calorie Counter database had they not already been there.

Also, this Calorie Counter requires you to be connected to the internet to use, but the Lose IT! app does not. This is worth it, too, because you aren't always around a wireless signal when you want to log your food/exercise.... and if you are anything like me will forget unless you can do it while you are thinking about it.

Lose It! also lets you create new exercises - I have not utilized this feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for eating better January 26, 2012
Tracking daily calorie intake is easy, and breaking down the carbs/proteins/fats is done automatically. Using this app makes the hardest part off getting in shape easy. And the app also tracks your weight, and much more. This is my daily tool to stay on track to finally get in shape and stay there.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome product January 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
I used the calories counter for 4 months and along with walking 5 to 7 times a week I successfully lost 23 pounds. I think this is just as good as the weight watcher programs that we have to pay for. I have downloaded it on my Android phone and my Kindle Fire.

1.0 out of 5 stars Calorie Counter by FatSecret January 14, 2013
By Anne G
Verified Purchase
At first I was excited to use this app, but over the next few days there were several instances where the app had an "unexpected error" and could not be accessed. Having to wait several hours or a day to enter food choices is ineffective. I deleted it and chose something else.

I likes this app, but the scan wouldn't download correctly on my galaxy s phone when it should have. I emailed asking the company for help, and all I got was a email saying it was MY problem not theirs!

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrggg...!!!! April 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I got this app because of all the great reviews and as soon as I installed it I started to fill in my info. Long story short, I wanted to add my workout for yesterday plus my calorie intake for that day. Apparently I cannot enter my weight for yesterday becaused I had already enter my weight for today (first thing I did). Ok, not so bad, until I try to enter my workout for yesterday and it doesn't let me. I get this message: "In order to estimate the energy burned for your activities and exercise you must enter your weight." That's exactly what I've been trying to do for the past three hour but you don't let me!!!!! Arrggg!!! So frustrating. I'm not dealing with this app anymore. It gets deleted. I'm sticking to "Lose it."

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much information. December 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
I don't like the fact that you have to divulge so much information just to get the app to work, so I already deleted it before actually trying the app.
