I’ve tried a lot of different nutrition apps and this is by far the best one I’ve found. The detailed nutrition info — all the bitamins, minerals, etc, not just label-required minimums— is better than any other app (and given ALL such info is available free from the gov’t, the other developers are lazy), the ability to add your own recipes and set your own serving sizes is sweet, and it’s easy to use from either the website or the app. It’s nice to be able to change your goals and add in exercise as well. I bought the gold membership after two days of using it because it was clear this was what I’d been looking for. AND the developer responds to feature requests. Try it out!
I like the app coming from another more popular app. I bought the paid version but not the subscription until testing it out and will not be subscribing for now. The interface is still a little clunky, and while the food database is much more accurate than the other popular app, it’s missing so many things that I try to search for which is frustrating. I can’t submit them as a recommendation since I’m not a gold subscriber (it seems silly to make that a gold “perk” when users are essentially helping out the development of the app by submitting missing items). I do not like that you can’t separate by meal without subscribing. The nutrient tracking is great, though, which was what attracted me to it in the first place. I wish rather than “calories eaten” it would show calories remaining - you have to swipe over to find that info, when I feel it should be front and center. I also wish when searching that it would find my recently entered items - if I start to type “365” it should show my most recently entered items that contain that term. I think gold is a little pricey for what you currently get, so will probably be sticking to the old app for now.
I'm giving this app four stars because advertisements are not blocked unless you sign up for the gold membership. Aside from that, the app is fantastic. It tracks micro nutrients dynamically, allows for easy entry of foods including custom recipes, and biometrics such as weight, blood pressure, body temperature, fat percentage, etc. I like that I can go back and view the individual ingredients for my recipes and edit them on the fly. The barcode option for adding foods makes life easy. The app can be configured to pull your Activity information from the Apple health application providing dynamic updates for the calories you burn throughout the day. By highlighting a specific nutrient the app shows you what foods have contributed to your intake of that nutrient and how much that contribution is. It also allows you to configure it for particular diets such as low carb (ketogenic), paleo, zone, etc. and tailors your daily nutrient targets automatically. I definitely recommend you give it a try. This is now my go to tracking app!
I really wanted to love this app. In fact, I used it (and continue to do so) for over six months now, and once you spend the hours it takes to configure it and enter your receipts or food nutrition information, it’s better than MyFitnessPal in terms of ease of use... but that’s only once you’ve gotten it set up. I really appreciate the ability to track Net Carbs, which is a HUGE reason I switched to Cronometer. It’s helped me immensely on my ketogenic lifestyle. However, the app hinders features such as long term trend tracking to sell you “gold membership” and it really lacks an offline mode. Good luck entering anything when you don’t have an internet connection. Saving your data locally should be step one in addition to the cloud. While it might seem like a small detail to nitpick, if my Apple Watch can synchronize it’s data to my phone locally there’s no reason Cronometer can’t do it. As such, this app feels like a stop gap between the increasingly greedy MyFitnessPal and a true full featured nutrition and exercise management and tracking platform.
This app does what it’s supposed to do, usually better than most. The database tends to have duplicated so scanning a barcode on a product that change nutritionally isn’t always accurate. Searching and confirming works, though only as well as search works in the app... There are a few other things I’d improve. Apple Watch support for at a glance calorie and macro progress through out the day. Despite a redesign, this app is still ugly as sin and doesn’t do much to inspire. I would also like an option of local only data, possibly synced to iCloud, rather than giving my data to your system. I’ve use this app for a while and the cost never appealed to me given how stagnant the product has become.
