First of all, let me be clear, we should not find our sole encouragement during Whole30 from a phone app. Regardless, it should have a little more thought and time put it into it then several days of practically the same saying reworded. Use facts about what the body is/should be experiencing and tell the user these things. Then round it out with genuine encouragement. As for the ingredient search and the package finder, they are great qualities of the app. I've had nothing but success with either of those things. That's the main reason why the price is justified.
First off, I strongly disagree with the fact that there are ads shown in the recipe section even though this app cost $2.99. The ads are annoying and cover what I’m trying to look at, and I’m constantly having to close them. On another note, there needs to be a way to filter your search results when you’re searching for recipes. For instance, I am doing the whole 30 diet and I was looking for a salad dressing recipe.. I typed in “dressing” and all different kinds of dressings came up that weren’t Whole 30 approved. I couldn’t find any sort of option to filter the results to only include Whole 30 options. I feel like this app is basically a waste of time because after taking all the time to scroll through all the dressing recipes (trying to find the ones that are whole 30 approved), I might as well have just googled it. The last thing I am disappointed in, is that many food items that I look up apparently “can’t be found” in the system or something, even when I manually type it the number. Also, the barcode scanner doesn’t always work. Sometimes it says “no barcode detected”. Overall I’m pretty disappointed that this cost $2.99 considering what I got, and of course, the fact that there are advertisements.
I was so excited when I came across this app, as I just started the whole30 for the first time. Seeing as this isn’t a free app I had some higher expectations. When I go to use the barcode feature I’d say at least 50% of the items are recognize... and I’m talking popular items found at Costco or Trader Joe’s. How have these not been added to the list? I also scanned a barcode listed on a ranch dressing bottle made specifically for whole30 and it told me it wasn’t approved so it made me very weary of how accurate the results from the barcode scan even are. That being said, when a barcode is recognized, this app is a huge timesaver.
This app came in handy at the store and wasn’t sure about something- and saved time not having to read labels as much. That is, until half way through my whole 30 I realized it said things were approved that really aren’t. Larabars with vanilla extract aren’t allowed and the app says they are. ? Makes me wonder what else wasn’t right. I see now that’s a pretty basic no-no. Another thing is a lot of items aren’t in the database. It’s getting there, but needs better accuracy and time to build the database up.
I’m just starting out and this is definitely better than nothing! But most of what I’m scanning isn’t in the database so I haven’t been able to rely on the barcode feature. (Trader Joe’s, for example) The barcode was my main reason for purchasing so in that regard I’m a little bummed. Some ideas: - I mostly shop at Trader Joe’s for whole30 and very few of the foods I scanned were in the database. An option for user submitted foods could help build the database? - I’d love a way to choose my landing page for when I open the app. At launch, it’s on the welcome page. Then I need to select the menu bar before I can get anywhere. - a counter or countdown on the app’s badge, or a widget, that shows what day you’re on would be cool! I think this app has real promise, especially if the barcode scanner works with significantly more food items
