Default WW Apps for iphone

Has anyone found a good WW points+ app for iphone? I just switched from a droid to an iphone. I had a great app on my droid, but it's not available for the iphone. So frustrating. I am looking for an app that will calculate, track, and look up food points and restaurant food points. It's asking a lot, but my old app did all that and more! It even had a bar code scanner that I used to scan foods and it could tell me what the points were.

Besides the official WW apps, do you mean? Because the WW app and the WW Scanner app are both good tools. The WW Scanner app is separate from the official WW app, so if you don't have e-tools, you might still be able to download that one.

I also have an app called MyScorePlus that will calculate points with the nutritional information. It doesn't have a barcode scanner, but it has the ability to track your points/food for the day.

Also, Fooducate has a scanner and uses a term that isn't WW (probably because of copyright issues), but it scans the food and will tell you how many points something is. It then will also grade the food and give you better alternatives.

I just downloaded iTrackBites I haven't used it enough to render an opinion yet but I love that it shows how many points I have left for the day right on the icon!

Right now I am using the actual WW app but have found another app on the iphone I plan to use in the future. It is called the ultimate value diary and it keeps track of the daily points and also has a scanner. It has a minimum cost.

I use Pts. Plus Diary (from iTunes $1.99) It does old points (Momentum) and new P+

Another popular tracker app is: Ultimate Food Value Diary Plus (itunes $2.99) It only does new P+

And: iTrackBites is good too (1.99) Does old and new P+

I have regular WW apps but I really like this one called "Fooducate" as well. It has "points values for dieters" on each of the foods.. not sure if thats the same as WW or a different system though.

It has a food scanner & gives the food a rating (A+ to D) as far as health and tell you a few things about it (added MSG, lots of Fiber, too much sugar, etc etc) but my favorite part is you can have it suggest healthier alternatives. Really convient while shopping

Thanks for all the suggestions girls!

MyScorePlus looks like a cool app. I have Nutrition Menu but I never used it. I always go back to WW's subscription. It just seems so much easier. I have always likes Fooducate, just for the grade it gives food.

I'm new to weight watchers and I haven't downloaded anything yet. Do you mind sharing the best apps out there for android phones?

I adore itrackbites. I'm doing that only and not paying for WW and have lost weight very well on it so far. Plus it is so easy to use and you can keep a list of your favorite foods for a simple one click add. It also has a weight tracker as well as does points+ and the old points system

I am not really on WW, just wanted a different kind of tracking for a while, got iTrackBites today, seems to be a new version. I really like its quick & easy interface.
