Calories Counter 3 App Reviews

It is not the best but it really help a lot

I started using it 4 days ago, and i really appreciate how it is guiding me and teaching me about calories on daily basis. Since i started using it i lost 2,8kg in 4 days wich is amazing to me because i couldn’t do it myself. With this calories counter i am very motivated. Mentally it ’s helping me to stay focus to reach my goal. The bad aspect is that you cannot incorporate all the foods those already registered are very basics but in the american standards . I am european and i kind have some difficulties to identify the food, but it works then. It would be great to make this app in french , spanish and other languages. But for those who are beginners like me and don’t know nothing about calories, this one is good i mean acceptable, very easy to use.

Lacks a drop down menu and database.

I purchased this app thinking it would help me manage my food habits. However, the app doesnt have a database of Nutrition Facts. This means you must such for and enter manually the nutrients and calories for each food item. Worst, the app doesnt memorize this information, so you have to start all over again every day. And once you enter a food item, you cannot modify it anymore. You have to delete it and start again if you make a mistake/want to change a value.

Just a fancy calculator

This app doesnt offer any long-term tracking, nor does it have a database for foods (its very small and didnt even recognize "cream cheese"). It doesnt offer any type of tracking of weight loss/gain either. Much too simplistic to be a paid app!

Not bad

It’s good for calorie tracking. Lots of food to choose from. One major donwside is you can’t edit or delete the ‘activity’ you do.

missing something important

Simply put, the food and activity lists are too limited. That makes routine entry of foods and activities too cumbersome. Consequently I don’t use it. A small note pad and a pencil are more useful.

I don’t like it

1. I put in a unit of measurement - “Imperial” and it still asks for my weight in KG and my height in CM, but when I put in my goal weight it wants it in lbs. Doesn’t make sense. 2. I can’t change the “Saved Weight” which is stuck at 126 - I don’t know if its lbs or kg…and my weight is 181 lbs. 3. It’s very confusing. I wish I could return it and get my money back.

Good app

Would be top rate if it saved food items you put in. Having to input them each time is a pain. Also good support!!

Requires you to search online for nutritional information

The app runs smoothly, and looks nice. However, you should be aware that this is just a log book for calories consumed/burned. You need to search online (as far as I can tell) to get the actual calorie information of the food. I was hoping to have it all in one place, but to be fair, it is only $1.99.

Decent Calorie Counter

This is a pretty good calorie counter. I like it because its easy to understand and type in your info. Not too complicated of a layout. I noticed in the exercise part where you record your daily exercises there is no weight training subcategory. That is mostly what Ive been doing lately for exercise and there is nothing. Also when you fill out the amount of time you worked out, it creates its own guesstimated amount of calories burned. But it cant be accurate because it does not know your intensity level. Other than that, its a good basic calorie counter. -JP Murrieta, CA

Calorie Counting Made Tedious

Ive done calorie counting on my own using spreadsheets formatted to calculate cumulative percentages of macronutrients by calorie (protiens, carbs, fats). This app is doesnt give you a percentage but a total in grams of macronutrients--kind of useless information, and you have to get on a calculator to get the information that is really useful. If you dont care about that and just want a running tally of your calories, its fairly decent….but again, it doesnt do anything a spreadsheet couldnt and I find spreadsheets are much easier to use. For example, this app doesnt allow you to copy meals from other days when you have the same meal more than once. You have to enter it manually over and over again. The food database is also kind of lame and there arent enough options for portion sizes. Again, it measures in grams (for example, one hardboiled egg can be selected in either grams or cup size). I would prefer if they gave an option for ounces, which Im used to, or estimates according to an average portion size (such as "large egg," "medium egg," etc.) Overall, I found this app annoying to use and lacking in features and options that should have been really easy to add. Instead of this, I suggest using calorieking.com for calorie amounts (they give more options for portion sizes and include percentages of macronutrient ratios by calorie) and entering into a spread sheet. This way you can copy and paste meals when you repeat them, and come up with some neat graphs on your calorie consumption and weight loss.

does nothing

this app has no data in it; you might as well use paper and pencil and save yourself the $

I don’t like the new interface

Version 2 has some improvements (larger database, shows percentages, weight progression graphs, etc) but I find the interface difficult to navigate. Also, imputing the foods is not very straight forward and there are some bugs that need fixing

This app is terrible

I would return it if i could

For the Money this is a good app

I like the interface; but if you use this app you will have to, in many cases, use the Nutritional Info on the food package to calculate the calories consumed. You only have to do this once and manually save it. This app has as a favorite section for this. As to activities, you’ll need to customize this section to fit your workouts.

Horrible

waste of $3. limited list of items so i cant imput half of the food i need to. The free calorie couting apps are better than this
