I have tried a few apps and I love this one by FAR! I love the scanning feature. I love the "projection" at the end of the day that tells you what you will weight on "X"date of you eat the way you ate that day.

So far I'm loving it also. It was very easy to enter my breakfast. I don't measure some things tho so I'm having to take a guess. That's the only part I hate.

Without measuring is hard. Not sure if I would be able to do that.

What I like about MFP best is that you see people confirming entries in the database. Some entries (and other apps) are so far off with the nutritional information. I only use what got confirmed multiple times to make sure I get the right details without double checking on the labels.

I use MFP and I LOVE it. It's been, by far, the best tool I've found that both allows you to log on the computer and phone. I love that you can scan labels of food products.

If anyone wants to add me, my user name on there is PghCLTGal.

I really, really like this app! Cons: nutritional info isn't always correct so be careful in your selections. Also, it is sometimes difficult to find exactly what ur looking for. Pros: user friendly, simple and clear. Ur calorie count shows up on the main page and when you submit ur day, it tells u how much you'll gain/lose if u keep eating the same way! You can also enter any exercise and it will calculate your additional calorie intake oh! And the bar code scanner! How could I forget? AMAZING!

Love, love, love it! I am addicted to it. It makes counting calories fun, plus I have tons of 3FC friends on it who are a wonderful source of motivation and inspiration!
