AmKaBr's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 9/3/18 10:08 PM
Fruits and veggies that I know are 0 SmartPoints come up as points. A fresh plum is coming up as 4 SmartPoints. Also, eggs should be 0 points. They come up as 2 each. That’s frustrating. System needs to be updated. Other than that, I love using the barcode to scan what I’m eating and instantly know how many points it is.
Loltraveler35's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 9/28/18 1:15 AM
This app does what it needs to do but could use a facelift with regards to the interface. Also, would like to see predictive text and other measurements options when you select a food. It’s time consuming if you’re trying to figure out how many tablespoons are in a cup when the only serving size option it gives you is a cup.
Zeebo988's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 9/28/18 10:42 AM
My friend told me about this app recently and said it was great. For just a few dollars he said he had purchased access to the guides that make it easy to track your points on a consistent basis. I decided to download it and was disappointed to see that had changed. Was annoyed to see they had updated this to now be an ongoing subscription based app so you have to pay a monthly fee to gain and keep access to these features. Go back to the old format!

As a breastfeeding mom, my weight is all over the place due to retained water/breastmilk. It would make my weight loss journey so much less stressful if I could track my measurements AND my weight. Because unfortunately my weight is never accurate. PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE

haleymom2001's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 9/18/18 3:17 PM
I lost 114 lbs on weight watchers years ago but when I got out of the free lifetime weight range I could no longer afford the monthly fee so I stopped going then I gained back a bunch of weight. I saw this app advertised on Facebook and it looked so much like WW I downloaded it and the pro version is only 2.99 a month so I got it and so far I just love the app because it’s so similar to what I was used to before! The word needs to get out about this app it’s amazing!
Mz_S's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 9/18/18 12:08 PM
It was a one time fee which was great. Made it way better than WW. Then they added guides that you had to pay for. Okay cool I bought a few of the guides. Now they upgraded and the guides are locked I can’t restore purchases and I’m not paying a monthly fee. That’s ridiculous.
eeivy's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 9/16/18 7:49 PM
Decided to try ibites to replace the WW app, however there are are too many inconsistencies between the point systems. Wish I had not paid for pro, since it’s an annual fee instead if a monthly fee. Now I’m stuck with this for a year.

BeevdOut's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 9/16/18 10:18 AM
In 2014 I downloaded the original version of this app in titled “iTrackbytes” The app saved me a ton of money, a ton a time, And gave me the gift of losing a ton of weight 55 pounds to be exact down to my perfect to goal and thinner than I was in high school. After some major life changes and some medical issues I have managed to put on about 20 pounds of that again and feel it every day as of today I am again beginning my journey with my new version of my savior – – I hope it is a five star upgrade.

Goddest39's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 8/4/18 8:46 PM
I love the app but it hasn’t worked for me in a few days. It freezes up and I can’t do anything. I don’t know if it’s because I’m on the free version but unfortunately I wish there was an option where I can pay monthly for the pro instead of one lump sum. Not everybody is set up where they can do it like that. Hopefully one day they will set it up where we can do a monthly payment to upgrade to the pro version. I’m sure I’m not alone in hoping this. But hopefully this issue is fixed so I can use my app again.
App Reviewer 12768's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 8/31/18 11:26 PM
None of the guides have accurate points for Freestyle. The guides are the same guides as the older Smart Points. You only have access to individual zero point foods in the pocket guide. The tracker won’t track weekly points correctly if you have your activity points set to use for Freestyle either. Developer refuses to even acknowledge that these are glitches. Just respond with “this app is not the same as Weight Watchers”. Well yeah, I could have told you that.

Crkjws's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 8/18/18 5:41 PM
Update: I continue to use the tracker. Have tried others but always come back to this tracker. Really is the best available. This has been the best tracker I have ever used. Makes more much more compliant and love the points system. Would like the option to log by meal category though (breakfast, snack, lunch etc.). The scanner is excellent. Works quickly and accurately. Thanks for the app.

What a disappointment! Wanted to use this to track calories....database doesn’t even have a basic food....bananas! How could this be? They do have mashed and powdered banana calories. Yea, Who regularly eats powdered and mashed bananas? This app is lame.
Mindful Moe's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 8/14/18 9:48 PM
I never got to use the app: during sign up, it will accept my gender and birthday - BUT NOTHING ELSE! No weight, target weight or my body height. Extremely frustrating to be stuck on the FIRST SCREEN of this app. No preview option, no way to correct the data later. Just: full block. Why?
nhuie's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 8/14/18 12:10 AM
I purchased the upgrade to be able to access the new WW Flex point plan. Although my points adjusted to the new plan, sadly zero point foods are not appearing that way. For instance seafood is no zero, but when I track fresh shrimp or salmon it has a points value. Same with fruits and veggies. It’s hard to trust that this database is accurate.

scrappywyf's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 8/11/18 5:21 PM
8/11/18: New user here. I’m getting used to moving my way around the app. These issues have popped up: 1. I’m having issues with my Fitbit data showing in my daily log. Yesterday it synced just fine; today, it’s not showing up on my log at all. I don’t want to disconnect and then reconnect- doesn’t that erase my past Fitbit history (I want to track my usage)? 2. Can the scanner stay open so I can scan items one after another? It’d be great to be be able to scan items one after the other to see which one has the least Bites (ex. when grocery shopping). After a scan, it’d be nice to have options: Track or Scan Again or Add to Favorites. Right now in order to scan multiple items, it’s very clunky and time consuming.
Dave Myers's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 8/10/18 10:44 PM
This app has made weight loss easy for me for many years. Recently Apple sabotaged it for me with iOS 11 update due to my having an iPhone 6s. Apple didn’t care to help but iTrackBites group was thoughtful and concerned. Grateful for the 4 years I had with this app and hope I can return to it when I upgrade my phone.

They have that they sync with Apple health. The only thing they sync is your weight. No steps, no activity, nothing else. I bought hoping to sync with health as I use several workout apps and have an Apple Watch. Their response, Install the the Fitbit app even if you don’t have a fitbit. If I wanted to use the Fitbit app I’d buy a Fitbit. What a waste of money going to ask for a refund. Don’t say you sync with health if you don’t!!!! Misleading advertising
skelton_em14116's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 7/6/18 10:15 AM
The app would be easier to use and more organized if there were an option to organize my day into separate meals. I don’t like that it’s just all listed in one place. Like the weight watchers app, if it were separated into breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, that would be easier to keep up with. Otherwise, I love the app, and especially love that I can choose which plan I want to use.
ReviewinTh!s's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 7/5/18 7:45 PM
Now they are forcing you into monthly fees when I had to pay for each individual app prior which was over 30+ dollars. This is now a complete waste because I lost some features due to this. This new schema is a ripe off. I had everything they are selling except smart bites prior to this without the monthly fee. The items I scan have incorrect calories and there is no way to change it without manually entering everything. They do not keep there barcode items up to date. Update: I gave them an additional star as their barcode scanner actually works.

I got this app back and January and absolutely loved it. A few weeks ago, it completely stopped working. I’ve tried turning my phone off and back on, deleting and re-downloading the app, etc. Nothing has worked. I miss being able to track my points!!
Dave Myers's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 7/25/18 3:00 PM
THE APP IS FROZEN It’s been 13 days since I reached out to customer support for the app about my problem (app frozen). I’ve had f/u email from Arlene but nothing now since July 16th. I’ve reset my phone, reset my app password, turned my phone on and off, deleted and re-downloaded the app, and nothing has corrected this problem. My emails in f/u have not resulted in further communication. I am very disappointed as I paid for the app and all of the bundles that are add ons (snacks, beer, etc). It’s upsetting that it looks like I’m going to have to go back to the very expensive monthly cost of Weight Watchers if I’m going to maintain my diet plan. My review on apple is currently 1 star when it had been 5 and it will remain that way. Very disappointed. I’m glad that others are not having this problem but I’ve honestly done everything I can and my app is frozen. My iOS and the app are up to date and I’m using an iPhone 6S Plus. I find it hard to believe that I’m the only one having this issue.

Lacrex's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 7/19/18 6:55 PM
I purchased this app about a year ago. It was recommended by a friend who was doing weight watchers, she loved it! I ended up buying this app as a bundle with iWatchBites, and restaurants guide for $4.99. I loved it, I could even sync my fit bit activity with the app, it was great! So much cheaper then the weight watchers app and just as good, if not better! Now, I don’t know what happened but I can longer sync my fit bit and I can’t use my restaurants guide or iWatchBites without upgrading to the Pro version for $2.99/month?!? I’ve already paid for all those apps and I can’t even use them now!

Alyssa Branen's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 7/11/18 9:23 PM
I’ve had the app for years. I bought the guides and bundles and have loved chatting in the community. They have made updates where you can upgrade to Pro and do the most current WW plan. They stated though that you didn’t have to upgrade and pay the subscription fee if you don’t want to do the newer plan. They also said we didn’t have to upgrade to post in the community. I noticed a few weeks ago I was no longer able to post. I sent a support email June 23rd saying “I can’t post anymore. I’ve been a member for years. I don’t have to pay 39 now to post do I?” They responded several others had the same issue and it will be fixed in an update. It was updated and still didn’t work. I emailed them again and this time a woman responded that you now have to pay 39 to upgrade to pro to post in the community” When I asked in a Facebook group a bunch of people said they never upgraded and could still post. So I give up. I’m not paying 39 after having bought the apps and guides years ago. I’m not interested in the newer plan.

This app is absolutely wonderful however, it is missing one or two capability’s and that is to sync my Fitbit so I know how many activity points I'm earning! Also, giving me the option to put my meals in the appropriate category! If it did these things this app would be a five star all day!! I do points plus I hate smart points and for some reason weight watchers took pp away from us so I have found this basically free app and I may never go back to weight watcher apps at this point if iTrackBites figures out how to let us sync our trackers and categorize our food!

The ONLY thing this app is missing is the ability to sync with my iWatch.

To upgrade to pro costs $35.99 dollars now!!! I thought it was only 12 dollars a year it says the cost will be 12 a year and will end on the 30th of June! I already purchased this app and spent $7 dollars and I have record to show this! I was ok with $12 a year but since I was already a member why am I being over charged. I sent them email and they won’t contact me or refund me difference and 12 dollars yr I am not part of. If I bought the app spent 7 dollars extra then I should be considered a member and given a discount!!! I may have to contact Apple and get full refund because this app developer will not work with you!!!

I just started using this App so I can follow WW pts+. Just for curiosity I scanned & and used the calculator to see if the pts would give the same point value. To my surprise THE POINT VALUE WAS DIFFERENT. This is very disappointing. Now I feel I have to use the Smart Points calculator for me to get the most accurate points value.
Shaunajoelle's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 6/18/18 4:26 AM
They try to boast that they are the ONLY app to do a bunch of things, and the first one to do them because they've supposedly been around 7 years. PLEASE look into the ACTUAL original apps, like "Fitbit" and "My Fitness Pal" (and if you're watching carbs I suggest the "cronometer" food tracking app -which is made to be used with low caeb diets - synced with the "Fitbit app," that is the best and most accurate way of tracking health, activity and nutrition I've ever seen) these apps do all these things, AND do them better, AND have a MUCH friendlier user interface AND DON'T CHARGE YOU for all the features this app does, they have them for free. Don't buy into this bull from this shi**y app x

DMarieBump's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 5/8/18 12:00 AM
I was looking for an app similar to Weight Watchers. After reading the reviews, I decided to try this app instead. In 2 weeks I have lost 6 pounds. I have never felt hungry or deprived. If I splurge on something, I know that I will have to cut back at another meal. I have read that journaling the foods you eat is a great way to lose weight. This app makes journaling so much easier(especially with the barcode reader). The only downside is that it doesn’t give you a graph for monitoring your weight loss(hint hint). Can’t wait to see where I am at in 2 weeks.

I use to have Weight Watchers, however, it got too expensive at almost $20 a month. This app is a great substitute, with their plus program only being $2.99 a month. Regardless, I only have the normal program (without paying money) and it calculates its points based off of the things WW does. So, it is very affordable.

Tinyblackdot's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 5/23/18 2:48 PM
I switched from Weight Watchers to this app to save some money. NONE of the points are accurate. I was using the freestyle program- everything was showing wrong. Chick-fil-A grilled nuggets should be 1 point- they were coming up as 5 on this app, fruit cup- should be 0, 3 points here- bbq sauce, should be 1 or 2 points- showing up 0. What’s the point of paying for a app that doesn’t work?
Krazy Qban's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 5/22/18 5:49 PM
Been using for about 1 week and I have been pleased with the results. I joined the Flex Bites Pro for $35.99 a year. This tracking device is very similar to another well known app and works in very similar fashion. There are a few different point values for food and a few quirks that have yet to be worked out. Some of the restaurants on the list are different than the other system, but it’s a matter of adjusting. The recipe list is not as extensive. This tool is hard to pass up for $2.99 a month when you only need a tracker. If you know your foods, have a system and just need a good tracker then this is a good option.
Giabellaa's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 5/21/18 8:43 PM
********update******** The app has been updated since my original review and it has definitely improved. I just canceled my weight watchers subscription yet again to try out iTrackBites version of freestyle which is called flex. I signed up for the monthly subscription to unlock flex and it stated there are over 200 zero “bites” foods now available. I know what they are since I recently had them on the weight watchers app, but yet again they are not available as zero bites foods on the list. How can you follow the freestyle with less allotted bites but not change the bites values in the system?! I've been on and off using this app for about almost two years. I recently started back up last week and I realized why I stopped using it in the first place. Now don't get me wrong because this is a great substitute for paying monthly for the weight watchers app, but it gets to be tedious when you have to create a new food for something as simple as green tea. I think the app needs a wider variety of foods available in the pocket guide to make for simple searches along with an updated restaurant guide.

My friend pays for the actual weight watchers app and we went to carvel and for a junior soft serve , CarvelLite vanilla, it is 9 points. I took the nutritional info from the carvel pamphlet and entered it into this app and it only calculated it to be 5pts. (The nutrition pamphlet and the real weight watchers app we’re identical) I decided to check other food items as well and this app is 1-3 points less than weight watchers. I won’t be using this anymore.

I am not clear on how this app works. I am trying to track food and I keep getting a message that everything is locked and it looks like I have to pay?? What can you do on this app under “free” features?

They are either misleading us or the new system is very buggy. Either way I really regret purchasing a pro plan :(

This would be 5 stars if it added: synching to Fitbit and taking food by meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
aall655's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/28/18 6:45 PM
I think this is a solid app, I just wish meals were separated vs all together in a list. For example breakfast, lunch, etc.
Shirlith's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/27/18 7:39 AM
When you purchase the pro for $2.99 a month you need to be aware that they charge your credit card for the entire year. That was NOT disclosed upfront.
Angme37's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/27/18 2:33 PM
This app is absolutely amazing. I just started today and I already upgraded to the pro since there is more features like the recipe builder and searching for the foods those are the two that I really need. I just love how many options there is for all of this great app thank you. But you can still use the community with the free version cause I was able to before I upgraded 3 days ago.
D Hawk's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/23/18 10:09 PM
Don’t really have anything to say about this new version except that the “PRO” icon is still setting on the home page like a car dealership sign. Pathetic. There are actually quite a few articles on apps like these.
.....zzzz's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/22/18 8:47 PM
I love the iTrackBites app. I have lost 20 pounds in 13 weeks without feeling hungry or deprived. My husband has lost too, but I’ll let him write his own review ;) I’ve never been on Weight Watchers, but from what I understand this works in a similar fashion. If I know in advance what I’ll be eating, I put it in my tracker and adjust serving sizes so that my points come out right and then I only eat that much. It’s very simple and keeps me mindful of my portion sizes. This is the best $12 I’ve spent in a long time. I can see no reason why I won’t stick to this program.
Grace Deen's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/21/18 1:00 PM
The basic app is great-you can do your WW program for little cost. I made the mistake of upgrading to get the new Free Choice program called flex and it is a waste of money. You can put in free points like beans but when you scan a free item, it has the old points. You can just customize in the regular app and add the free items with a zero point. In other words, the annual subscription which automatically renews (this yr they offer a discount but who knows what it will cost next yr) adds nothing new. And once you click install, you can’t refund even if you immediately realize the app is a waste. Sorry iTracks, I was a real devoted fan until this upgrade!
DiggyJohn's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/21/18 12:56 AM
The premise of this app was always paid add-ons to an otherwise free app if you just wanted the basic weight loss plan itself. All of the weight loss programs on here are free. I waited and waited for the new 2018 changes, and when they finally came they were part of the paid add-ons instead of being a base part of the app like the rest were. No thanks. After waiting this long for what I expected to be included, then have the bait and switch, I’d rather pay Weight Watchers the 4x amount they charge than give iTackBites a dime. If I had known up front they were planning to charge for the program, and deviate from the current format of the plans being free, I wouldn’t be so behind on my diet now... I could have been using the WW app all this time instead of holding out for this new feature.
Cinngirlo8's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/19/18 6:28 PM
This app is good in theory but foods are way too difficult to find in order to track. Found myself having to create nearly every food I ate. I need something easier to use with my busy lifestyle. Because of this I deleted the app.

I was thrilled to find an app that was similar to the old weight watchers plan. I prefer the old points method. This works great for that. So far the camera and other guides are working together nicely. I had some issues getting access to the bundle I previously purchased. They worked with me until it was fully restored.

nongamer160100's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/13/18 1:03 AM
If you choose to upgrade they charge you way more than the price they advertise! You are forced into paying for a YEAR. And they don’t respond to customer service complaints. How is this even allowed on the App Store? ***UPDATE/RESPONSE*** I did contact support and they said to contact iTunes support, but iTunes suggests I contact the developer because it is billed through a third-party, not iTunes... I responded saying this and have not yet gotten an email back. For what it’s worth, the yearly fee must have not been made clear or in tiny print* because I absolutely would not have purchased it. Whatever it is, if you can ONLY purchase a $35.99 12-month subscription and not a single month, why don’t you just be up front and list the price as $35.99 rather than $2.99?! I rarely purchase apps. in the first place and when I do, if it is a subscription I would only purchase after having tried it. This is extremely frustrating and disappointing.
Davethebiker49's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/12/18 6:29 PM
I am updating to a 4, based solely on the fact it took roughly 2 months to fix the issue. Outside of that it has been great, I am down over 15 lbs with minimal effort on my end.
AgentO2's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/12/18 5:34 AM
For the price, a great weight loss companion! The only request I have is, better syncing with activity. I have my Apple Watch connected as well as Nike+, and I still have to manually input my daily activity (which can become cumbersome at times). I’d like to see that fixed so I’m not putting in more work (which can dissuade me from using the app) when I want to account for my activity. Pros include, a large database of food and restaurants, daily diary, daily health checks, easy input, accurate barcode scanner.
Elei's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 4/12/18 3:49 PM
Purchased the pro app and it doesn’t work. Acts like I didn’t just spend $30 on it. No phone number to call. Submitted 2 help tickets but when I try and log in to see them, it says access denied. That’s some fishy stuff. Updated 4/12- I got a refund from Apple long ago. I wasn’t about to pay for an app that I literally could not use until you guys got around to fixing the issue. Seems like some people waited months. Terrible customer service on your part.

First of all, I love the design. It’s colorful and very pleasant to look at. I appreciate being able to choose which weight loss plan I want to use. You can choose, calories, weight watchers plus, weight watchers smart points or classic. I used to use fitness pal, but this layout is much better. Very user friendly. Worth the fee.
familygirl2013's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 2/3/18 8:11 PM
I downloaded this app because I don’t like the new WW plan. I’m really liking having the freedom to do Pointsplus via this app:) I do find the tracking system a little less convenient than the WW app but not in a way that bothers me~ all in all I’m very happy with the app!
Marlyjo's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 2/3/18 4:24 PM
This app is amazing and pretty much on target with Weight Watcher's point systems. I like the flexibility in choosing which point system that works for me, the calculation of daily points and daily deduction totals along with activity points. This all works well for me. The only fall back I personally see it can be difficult in finding food point values. The bar scan option is great but have found some foods not available and have been asked to fill in the blank fields. It would be easier if the in-app purchase was one bundle or purchase each one individually. All in all I find this app very helpful.
M.D.16's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 2/3/18 1:50 PM
I'm finally losing weight thanks to this app. I did have to eat more than the daily and weekly points when I first started but still lost 5lbs within 10 days! After about 2 weeks I'm not getting as hungry on the 30 points I get daily. Thanks to the creators of this app you are changing many lives without price gouging!!!
Lizzy0118's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 2/3/18 1:25 PM
I love this app! It works for everything I need! And it's relatively easy to log everything. No big fees, and no monthly plans like WW! You do have to purchase other features, but it's still functional without them. My favorite add on is the recipe builder. I make so many of my own meals, and so to be able to add all the ingredients and it tell me how much per serving.. it's amazing to me! :) I do hope on a future update we can connect it to the fitbit app, but either way I love it! :)

Kawasakigal's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/8/17 11:39 AM
This app is amazing and I never feel deprived! I’ve lost 12.4 pounds in a course of 6 weeks so far (without exercise but will start up a routine as soon as I’m over my sickness). This has been the only thing I’ve actually been able to stick with and not fail! Ok so a couple things imo that need to be tweaked (I’m not complaining just a little friendly advice 😊) 1.) Editing your comments- When u post a comment u can’t go back and fix it so u have to post a whole new comment. 2.) Favorites/Recently Tracked Items- Sometimes a few of my favorites and/or recently tracked items disappear and I have to re log them again. Could u make an option to make it so u can choose to keep recently tracked items unlimited so it saves everything? Or maybe u can do like up to 20 items, 50 items unlimited etc? (I’m sorry if this doesn’t make sense lol)
nadkitty's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/31/18 1:02 PM
Can’t find things and scan find things only sometimes. Better off just getting calorie counter or paying for weight watcher. This was such a hassle just to track food. I have to create a food new one every time i want to track it.
Brittttttnnay's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/31/18 1:02 PM
This update was one of the worst I’ve seen in my life. I cried with physical tears because I have been a user of this app for 1/4 of my life. It is what motivated and helped me to go from a size 12 to a size 2. What should have been more convenient is just more complicated and annoying. “Recent” foods is limited to just 50 instead of unlimited. When looking at past posts, all the different meals are mixed up: for ex, breakfast is in the dinner section and dinner is in the lunch section ETC. it’s all just a big mess. I’m dying to go back to the old version; there was nothing wrong with it. You also need phone service to track, which has never been the case. WORST. Does anyone know how to contact them?

After using this for sometime since leaving bc Freestyle wasn’t a good program for me I upgraded to latest.

MG225's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/29/18 12:57 PM
I really haven’t had a chance to seriously use this app. It’s the day after Christmas and I’ve got more partying to do. Anyway I upgraded to Pro status at a cost of $2.99 per month. Instantly the full cost of the subscription, $35.99 was billed to iTunes and paid from my PayPal account. Moments later I tried to cancel the subscription only to find that the purchase is not eligible for refund. So, I said all that to say, don’t opt for “Pro”, unless you’re really serious about taking full advantage of the app. I was only able to unsubscribe to prevent auto renewal next year. I’m giving the app three stars because it’s very similar to the WW app which I loved.
tati_23's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/29/18 12:57 PM

Vanar's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/29/18 12:57 PM
New version took away my restaurants. Not sure if I need a monthly pro subscription to get it back or what. Changed point values of some of the foods in my favorites. Activity favorites I left blank duration now has false durations pre entered that I have to back space to delete. Activity counts up as I earn but does not count down as I spend. It’s so “organized” that now its Way harder to use more taps to do the same things I used to do. Alpha scroll is gone. Fixed something that was not broken. Should have made this a separate opt-in app with clearly explained consequences and advantages of moving away from original app. Update: I really want to give 5 stars, as this app has helped improve my health for several years. But as I use this new version for the past few days more problems I find. I cannot change serving size on the fly in multiple add. Items can spontaneously disappear during multi add. I wish I had not updated especially now during the holidays when I most need reliable tracking. I will change this review if developer improves things in coming releases. But this is the most expensive app I ever purchased including add-ons, so I am reluctant to cut much slack. Update 2: bfast/lunch/dinner appears to be based on time of day so if I add bites at different times the organization gets messed up. One linear list as before is better.
merecourt's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/29/18 12:57 PM

Used to be a great app. :( Update: i have to “restore purchases” every time i restart the app!! Why am i still using this? Also, same item scanned back to back had two different classic point values!

I have used previous versions for a couple of years.

So now I have to spend time finding a new food logging program.

Lindsey118's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/25/18 1:10 PM
I updated several apps yesterday including iTrackBites, which I’ve used for about a year and recently paid for an upgrade to the Pro version. Over several months, I had logged a lot of favorite foods including several custom favorites on which I spent significant time researching nutritional information. Yesterday’s iTrackBites “upgrade” wiped out EVERYTHING: my favorites, history of points, weight loss, and more. I’ve poked around in the new interface to see if there’s a way to retrieve my lost information, but nothing seems to work. The app’s online FAQ page was no help at all. Bottom line: do NOT update this app unless you’re prepared to start all over.

**Update: Changing my 5 stars to 1. This latest update is complete garbage! I find myself not even tracking because it is now so tedious and time consuming. Not to mention nothing works correctly, the points are all wrong, I lost all of my saved recipes, I can no longer access the community. The list goes on. Change it back! No one likes it. It wasn’t broken so why even mess with it?** I started using iTrackBites in November of 2017. I’m down over 90lbs as of today! It really does work as long as you put in the effort. I had done WW in the past but always left because the cost was just too much for me. This is an amazing alternative. It takes a little playing with and tweaking to figure out all of the details, but so worth the few dollars that it costs. ITrackBites was literally a life saver for me. I feel and look amazing because of it.

This app is a great way to track food, but it seems to want to take your money. Despite the fact that it’s a paid app, there is a little moving ribbon set over some of the buttons to get you to buy their stuff. Despite the fact that I bought some of the guides in a bundle with this app (as separate apps), inside the app it is trying to sell me those same guides, plus others as well.

I just downloaded this because WW decided to change their points system ONCE AGAIN after I had success with the previous plan with no choice to go back to the old system. Seriously, what a terrible way to treat customers! I’m liking this app so far, but it would definitely be nice to have a “save meal” option on the calculator. We use the Hello Fresh boxed meal system and it’s convenient for me to input all of the nutritional information at once and then track the meals throughout the week. However, that’s not an option on this app. Please add this feature, I would be forever grateful!

Wish it didn’t show negative points and a red line for when you start dipping into your 7 indulgence points for the day. I feel the red line should come if you go over your daily and the plus 7 you get from the weekly. Love how it gives the option to choose your program. As I have been unsuccessful l with the new WW updates. The new programs are so restrictive. With this app you can choose which tracking program to do.

Tired in MO's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/14/18 8:09 AM
The new version is not user friendly. It takes more steps to enter foods. Then there is no way to look at a quick list of the foods you’ve entered. Can no longer use the community chat with out paying $2.99 a month for PRO. It ducks now. Thx fir messing up a good thing.
SSG Gibson's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/14/18 8:09 AM
I had bought this app a couple of years ago. Along with it I paid for the restaurant guide. The new update put the restaurant guide in their “Pro” plan for a monthly fee. I found the button to restore purchases but that did not give me back my access to the restaurant guide that I already paid for. Also, posting to the community used to be free. Not anymore. That’s also part of the “Pro” plan. Don’t waste your time or money.
listen2richie's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/14/18 8:09 AM
I have been using this app for 5+ years and have always been happy with it...until the latest update. Food entries are more cumbersome, it is counterintuitive, and the searchability is flawed. The pocket guide is not apparent and sometimes a search doesn’t find things I know are in there.
Weeza198435's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/14/18 8:09 AM
MAKES ME MISS MY OLD SIMPLE PAPER TRACKER! I know new things take time to learn. However, had I known the new app would be so much back and forth and looking through different food lists I would NOT have updated! Yes, it is "prettier" than before. But some of my food points are showing as having decimals now, I don't like the minus if you've dipped into your weeklies and there are too many different personal food lists. Was much easier just to click before and have it track. Now I feel like it's an extra 3 steps to track food. Developers: PLEASE FIX
Allison8652's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/14/18 8:09 AM
I have used iTrackBites off and on for a few years. But this new update is a game changer. Easier to find foods in the app, beautiful to look at and easier to interpret the data it’s tracking. Tried Noom before iTrackBites brought out this update. I’m sticking with ITrackBites!

jaybeeh's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/14/18 8:09 AM
Not a fan of the recent “upgrade.” I enjoyed using the app for a couple of years and bought several of the databases for the old version, but they are no longer available to me, and “restore purchases “ doesn’t help. This makes the app borderline useless, unless, of course, I go Pro, which in my case is too far to go. I regret having updated.

I’m an on and off weight watchers gal. Found this app and I love how I can keep track of my points every day...I’m an after menopause lady so losing is harder than when I was younger. This program really works, slow and steady. Plus it’s MUCH cheaper than WW meetings/online. Try it, you’ll like it!!

The app helps greatly and allows me to not feel I’m on a diet. I lost in 2 weeks 5 pounds and one inch in my pant size. The only limitation is I can’t copy meals from one day to another. Hence the reason I only gave 4 stars

Jeff S from PA 18914's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM
I am OK with change but what they neglected to consider is how long it takes to add meals in different formats. In the previous version I could add my meals in less than a minute as supposed to the 12 1/2 minutes it just took me to do it today. There is no option to add multiple foods at one time. You need to add each one individually and then go back to the menu and start over again. What a pain!
Picnicmetoo's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM
I am more than willing to pay but hate the new format and that it won’t sync without buying the Pro—and that the Pro wants more information than I’m willing to give (or I woud be willing to buy the Pro). I have used this for years to keep me aware of what I’m eating. I use an Apple watch,not Fitbit, I want my favorite foods easy to access alphabetical—and I want to use the old old system of calories, fat and fiber which works for me when creating new foods.

NervousNellie's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM
Update 12/10/18: I am practically giddy! This most recent update is just what I’ve been waiting for. The visuals are awesome, the tools are great and all the things I didn’t like about the app originally have been corrected and most importantly, i can still do my points plus!!! I was actually running about the house squealing in excitement so loud when the new app loaded on my phone the husband came in wondering what the heck was going on :-). This has me so excited to get back on plan I'm not even going to wait till January to start back in serious like I usually would. The only caveat is that the update since it was so huge has some bugs so the app has a few things that need tweaking but from the community posts it seams the developers are aware and they are working to fix everything. That is something i can live with for a little while to end up with an awesome app. No one who spent as much time and effort as they obviously did in this last update is going to leave things broken so I'm not worried. I don’t want ti jinx myself but I really think that with these changes this is going to be the year that i get to goal! Old review Ok, I admit it, at first i was turned off by the lack of visual appeal and the lack of FitBit syncing capability with this particular app and ended up going with another WW alternative that was prettier after WW switched from point plus to smart points and totally ruined my my 50 pound weight loss streak. HOWEVER, that app changed too and although it did still support folks doing WW Points plus it obviously wasn’t their main thing anymore and i often had trouble finding foods in the database. Flopped around for a long long while and finally decided to give this app a fair shot since they really seem focused on supporting people doing all of the ww programs and I'm glad i did. It took a few days of figuring out the app and i did buy all the add ins but i can say I finally feel back on track and even managed to loose a little over the recent thanksgiving holiday. Im so so thankful for this app and anyone who desperately misses the points plus program should give it a try. It not perfect but i think it really is the best option for us WW points plus people out there. Pros and cons listed below. Pros Still has the pocket guide, useful for double checking if an infrequently used vegetable is truly “free” With add ins has a very up to date and user friendly restaurant database and also i have only once had to input data for an item i was using the barcode scanner on so the general food database is really nice as well and I don’t have trouble finding food in the way I prefer to track (by weight). Plenty of items to choose from in activities Like the ability to have a favorites food list Most importantly it supports points plus!!!!!! Cons As stated before its not the prettiest app nor does it have Fitbit sync capability. Id like to have it split meals by breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and not gave them all in one long list and just generally have it look a little fresher. But really in the end these thing don’t matter because it does let me do my ww smart points almost effortlessly and that's what i like. To anyone reading this who is doing smart point and struggling seriously buy this app and give the old system a try.

Just wanted to let you know that I’m not happy with the latest update. I’m now looking for a new app. I have used this app for over two years and it has helped me lose over 120 lbs. There is now features missing that where present in the last version(online look up or pocket guide look up)....thanks but no thanks from an unsatisfied customer..
Edensayers's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM
The app itself is great and can really help you with your dieting goals. I've had this app for years and along the way I purchased all the add ons like the restaurants and etc. Today I decided to start using the app and logged in it had all my info from before but I no longer had access to all the features I purchased. I see my favorite add on restaurants is $3.99 it's weird I can't use it any more but it's a main one I use so I buy it and track my stuff. Well then I get an email regarding a $35.99 yearly subscription. Which isn't want I wanted or expected, especially when I have already purchased the entire add ons suite years ago. So basically you can buy an app and the app can require you buy it again.

travellingmatt's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM
Up until this latest update this app has been amazing for me. This update, however, makes the process of tracking food/activities much more complicated. When looking for foods to track it not only cannot find items that were previously in the pocket guide but (even more frustratingly) cannot find foods I tracked yesterday! Furthermore, the header monitoring points used, weekly points remaining, and activity points earned combined with the dates along the top takes up half of my phone screen, making it nearly impossible to track foods/activities or go back and look at previous day's tracking. While I understand the need to update the look of apps to keep them fresh and exciting, this is inconvenient and frustrating enough that after one day I'm ready to drop it and give up.
App Reviewer 12768's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM

AustenYanksFan's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM
This app was awesome, but they 1) got way too greedy and 2) destroyed their GUI (user interface) in the last update. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because at least I can still use the old WW programs, but that’s all. I had to put a bunch of money into this app to search for food values when I started, but now they’ve moved to a subscription model and I lose feature after feature as time goes on. The most recent one is that I cannot communicate on the boards anymore. Without Any Warning. Just performed my app updates & suddenly got a message telling me I couldn’t post or reply without handing over money. I’m not going to pay $6/mo (in one yearly pymt) when I have already paid for most of the features just to get My Own HealthKit data imported, do point calculations for steps (as i understand it for Fitbit only), and Get Back the ability to communicate on the boards. Stripping features is a bad practice! Charging for new features is one thing, but you have to be considerate of those who are long-time customers. And connecting to Apple HealthKit should Never require $. That’s a HUGE no-no. Shame on you. Charge me for what you can do with data/info, not just to import/export. They need to learn to create value, not just charge for the sake of charging. Again...charging simply because it’s something new and everything new goes into the subscription model to screw their old customers who paid for Everything Else piecemeal already is just ridiculous. HealthKit isn’t a feature. It needs to be a Table Stakes (ie Basic Function) for an app like this. As far as the GUI, they caved & made it look a lot like WW crap interface. Clearly these guys hired cheap coders who build typical app GUIs without any special value. They are all likely ppl who have never actually been on WW most likely, and have no idea what’s important to those who are trying to lose weight, and didn’t do any research about their customers. The coders just rebuilt the app to look like all other average apps, and just called it a day. They did a few beta tests, but almost certainly they only tested for functionality, ignoring user experience. First of all-I see a huge Negative number when I go over my daily & use my flex points. I used to work for WW, and am a lifetime member. It’s NOT a bad thing to use flex points-that’s their purpose!! WW is not about guilt-they need to hire someone to teach them about their own customer base! Activity points simply don’t work properly in the new system, so I cannot speak any more to that. Food searches take far longer in the new system, and don’t produce nearly as many accurate results. I wind up seeing multiple values, including 0 point values (from “another program”) for foods which are Not 0 points in my program, so I cannot trust that I’m seeing Points, Smart Points, or Points Plus calculations anymore when I search. Losing a lot of my recent foods really left me in a lurch. Also, the healthy checks are wrong. I am not over 55, so I should not be asked for 3 dairy servings. I should Never be asked for 2 vitamins. In general they simply don’t match WW guidelines. Overall, what used to take 2 clicks (like adding recent foods) now takes several. Tons of recents are suddenly “forgotten”. Efficiency is critical in an app-they destroyed that. The app is just plain SLOW. it takes longer to track, longer to search, and uses more data to run. This means I no longer want to just leave it running in the background, so I have to keep opening/closing it all day. It’s the little things that contribute to an app being great...they missed great And good and landed on sucksville with this new update. My weight tracking has also disappeared before November. Of course if they didn’t charge me to see My Own Info from HealthKit that wouldn’t be a problem. My app shows I am a Pro user (from previous version), but so many buttons ask me for money that I have to be careful what I click. Too many things in the interface lead to this request. Clean that junk up-half of the buttons shouldn’t be asking me for $$. You simply don’t provide enough Value to do this. They should be charging for unique things they do, not just because users happen to have installed their app instead of another option. This is business 101. Clearly they need to go back to basics on both developing a business model and app development.

spiritualfish's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM
This used to be the best free “track food” app, but now it is THE WORST. I cannot track all the databases I paid for (online foods, snacks, restaurants, etc). When it converted to 6.0, all my favorites and recipes built started using a different system for bites tracking so everything is MORE bites. (I was using one of the older systems where fruits and veggies were 0 zero points). No instructions or FAQ comes with the 6.0 version. I have contacted (email) the developers three times asking for instructions along with answers to my questions. Haven’t heard a peep in response. I am going to start using a different tracker because this no longer has databases that I can search. I asked for a refund for all the databases I paid for and now cannot search. No answer. This feedback was from 2017: developers listen to feedback and respond quickly. When the new version came out with intro to PRO, the free one was diminished in resources. The developers fixed it immediately so the free one is GREAT again
*kjp*'s Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 12/12/18 12:18 PM
Holy moly, lots of change avoidance in these upgrade reviews! Ya’ll did a great job. The user interface is spectacular, and for WW users, it now closely matches what we’re used to. For everyone saying they can’t find food, you click the +, then “food”, and search for it 🤷🏼♀️. It used to be several lists, and now it’s one (including restaurants). 🙌 It literally could not be easier, and the community folks have already figured out all of the new changes, for those not tech savvy, and are *super* helpful. I’m excited to see what comes in the second phase of the roll out, because this has been a long awaited slice of awesome. For those complaining about certain features only being available for pro users: (1) it’s still cheaper than WW and; (2) I know it’s weird, but people don’t like to work for free. 👋

I have used WW online for 4 months. I decided to give Itrackbites a try. I was disappointed I had to keep spending more and more money after the initial purchase. I bought a bundle thinking that would be it, but it isn't. I do not like that most of what I buy from the store is not listed. I knew my recipes I would have to enter, but not even Hellmans mayo is listed, among other things. Somethings I already knew the smart points for were not correct on this app. Also, where you log in your food is not broken down for different meals. You can not save frequent meals. I paid another fee so my app would sync between apps and it does not. I would not recommend this over WW online.

This is a nice low cost option for those who can’t or don’t want to afford Weight Watchers online. The app works great and their community is very active and supportive. It takes a minute to get used to but after that, it is smooth sailing. Try it out!
Kimchi 24's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 11/3/17 12:08 PM
Very confusing app. Too much of a variance between same good ... if you type in Something simple like cucumber ...it comes back with cucumber 2 pts , cucumber 1 pt , cucumber 0 points ( which it should be 0) then cucumber chickpeas ??? 4 pts . Seriously ...dumb app!
NervousNellie's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 11/28/17 6:55 PM
Ok, I admit it, at first i was turned off by the lack of visual appeal and the lack of FitBit syncing capability with this particular app and ended up going with another WW alternative that was prettier after WW switched from point plus to smart points and totally ruined my my 50 pound weight loss streak. HOWEVER, that app changed too and although it did still support folks doing WW Points plus it obviously wasn’t their main thing anymore and i often had trouble finding foods in the database. Flopped around for a long long while and finally decided to give this app a fair shot since they really seem focused on supporting people doing all of the ww programs and I'm glad i did. It took a few days of figuring out the app and i did buy all the add ins but i can say I finally feel back on track and even managed to loose a little over the recent thanksgiving holiday. Im so so thankful for this app and anyone who desperately misses the points plus program should give it a try. It not perfect but i think it really is the best option for us WW points plus people out there. Pros and cons listed below. Pros Still has the pocket guide, useful for double checking if an infrequently used vegetable is truly “free” With add ins has a very up to date and user friendly restaurant database and also i have only once had to input data for an item i was using the barcode scanner on so the general food database is really nice as well and I don’t have trouble finding food in the way I prefer to track (by weight). Plenty of items to choose from in activities Like the ability to have a favorites food list Most importantly it supports points plus!!!!!! Cons As stated before its not the prettiest app nor does it have Fitbit sync capability. Id like to have it split meals by breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and not gave them all in one long list and just generally have it look a little fresher. But really in the end these thing don’t matter because it does let me do my ww smart points almost effortlessly and that's what i like. To anyone reading this who is doing smart point and struggling seriously buy this app and give the old system a try.

Constant drop down advertisement icons ruin this app. I’d rather pay weight watchers than put up with this.
Gdubyall's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 11/25/17 9:44 PM
Bought this app a couple of days ago. First of all, just getting the app to show up in both my iPhone and iPad was challenging. Got that cleared up finally. Just began using the app today and I’m disappointed that the scanner doesn’t pick up nutritional info as easily as the WW scanner feature. I bought this app because the reviews said it was as good if not better than the WW app. Right now I’m not feeling it. Also, I was disappointed to see that my phone and pad weren’t syncing info then realized I’d have to pay for that feature. Ok. I bought the syncing feature. However, the food I input today on my iPad won’t show up on my iPhone. Didn’t I just pay for this?? Please tell me why it’s not working or where I should look to fix the problem. I expected an app that more closely resembled the WW app. So far this isn’t a close second. And it’s not as intuitive as one would think/hope. I hope that this is just a learning curve. If it doesn’t shape up within a couple of days, I’m going to request a refund. I’d rather have no program than deal with these issues everyday.
NewStarNewStar's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 11/24/17 2:44 PM
I was looking for an inexpensive alternative to weight watchers and found this app. I’ve used it for four days and love it! It takes a little while to learn the food searches might be on one of several places -online, the diary, or USDA - but it does a great job finding some of my foodie food. I’m already losing weight! The activity tracking works well too. I chose the plus plan and it lets me track activity against food daily and there’s a weekly points for extra food for going out or whatever just like WW’s points plus program. NOTE: I did buy three extra in-app purchases to buff this up, but the total was less than one month of WW. I have one request to app maker: please add an Apple Watch sync soon.
ChiAndLui's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 11/2/17 5:34 PM
I haven’t done anything like this before but this is helping me so much!!! I plan my meals for the entire day based on my points and now I pay attention to what I eat and space out my meals/snacks so that I feel like I’m eating often and continuing to have something in my stomach through the day. I have never really eaten like this before but I think it will help my metabolism to speed up and I’m also making sure to eat lots of fruit, veggies and protein. The water tracker is also very helpful to make sure I drink enough water and I love having the scanner to easily find out how many points are in foods. I think this is actually a life-changer!!! TOTALLY WORTH $13 (I bought a couple of the add-ons)

I lost 30 lbs in 4 months and it was not that much effort! I feel so much better, my hips and knees and I don’t feel like I sacrificed too much. I found foods I like to eat and don’t miss the chips and desserts. The only way to lose weight and keep it off is tracking what goes in your mouth and tracking your exercise. I’m looking forward to the maintenance program and doing this always! Say goodbye to weekly fees and weigh in meetings.
Sharoncrum's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 11/17/17 6:30 PM
This app is wonderful as an alternative but it does take quite some getting use to. Pros: WAAAYYYY more affordable than weight watchers, only a few one time purchases and the app will serve a very similar experience. This app has a calculate feature which can help you figure out the points of something if you’re only stuck with a label. The original WW app does not have that feature! Cons: The platform feels very outdated and has a few ads which will not go away, apps that cost money shouldn’t have ads interfering with the interface. It doesn’t have the ability to categorize breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner which I find to be unorganized and unhelpful. Another thing is, you can’t calculate in anything other than servings, I love to calculate by cups or tablespoons. The community isn’t as active as WW and you can’t post photos. All in all, the pros do outweigh the cons and there are far more cons that I could post, BUT you’re going from an app that will cost you a one time cost of no more than $15, while weight watchers online will cost you around $180-$240 a year. If you have the money and have a ton of weight you need to lose, I’d go for weight watchers. But if you’re not very far off from your goal and are relatively broke, go for this app.

This app tracks fruit as a high point value when on the past 2 Weight Watcher’s plans it has been 0. I also don’t find this app to be very user friendly. There are too many steps to accomplish the goal which is tracking everything. I also am not able to receive a refund so if anybody is on the fence about the app, don’t purchase.

I joined Weight Watchers in 2014. I lost 25 pounds in 6 months using their Points Plus system. I was successful in keeping this weight off until WW decided to change to Smart Points. This program does not work for me and I gained the weight back. I found this app by googling “Points Plus” two weeks ago. I have been using it since then and I am starting to lose weight again. So happy to have found this app.

I’ve used this app for years. Invested in all the add-ons with snacks, restaurants, etc.. but now they want me to pay every month to use it, allow adds to pop up all the time, and not allow me to use the New Flew Flex points system unless I pay monthly. So much for loyalty. :(

I’ve been with WW online for a year. I’ve lost and regained because I stopped tracking. I saw this app and compared it to other point apps and this one seemed to fit with my WW program. I would lie to see a steps counter added other than a sync to Fitbit. Not everyone uses Fitbit to count steps.

I am only successful when tracking my food intake. Did WW many times but discovered iTrackBites. Very inexpensive option. It was a little cumbersome to learn and the Recipe Builder isn’t as good. If I were honest, I would give the app a 3 but because of the price compared to WW, my rating reflects that savings.

Hopefully I can keep the will power going without the support.

Laurie0927's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 11/16/18 1:59 PM
I like this app because it is similar to WW and a lot less expensive . Cons: some foods are hard to find because they are misspelled (yogurt is entered as yogourt). The thing that annoys me the most is the recipe builder. When I search for ingredients they are listed by serving. I want to add a pound of pasta, a cup of milk, a cup of sugar etc. not 1 serving of pasta, 1 ounce of milk or 1 teaspoon of sugar. I have to do the math myself to convert teaspoons of sugar to a cup etc. it is tedious. I recall in the past there was a choice ounces, cups, teaspoons, slices etc.

I began using I-Track Bites sometime this past February and so far lost 37 of my 40 lb weight loss goal. I’m finding the last few pounds a struggle as they are the most stubborn to shed! I could not be more satisfied with my results! It will be my life style now as I’m feeling so much better in every way! Going from six 12-14 to 10-8 is awesome! I am getting a lot of compliments and people expressing an interest in this plan. It’s a discipline, but the payoff is oh so worth the effort! It’s about making healthy choices overall and being honest and accountable about what and how much I am eating! All I can say is Yippee and Wahoo! ☺️

For a full weight watchers membership it costs $500 a year. Their meetings are 10 minutes of Bravo's, 10 minutes of guidance, and 10 minutes of sales pitches for products. So I decided to do online only. That was over $200 a year, and then I found this app that does everything, even restaurant lookups, barcodes, EVERYTHING, for a mere fraction of the cost. Don't go anywhere!!

For a free version of the app, it works very well. It’s a little difficult tracking recipes. Scanning the barcodes typically picks up all of the foods I’ve scanned. If it doesn’t, it’s very easy to add food via the calculator. I like the constant notification on the app itself of how many points you have left for the day. You are always in the know without having to open the app itself.

Why do you have point values for Foie gras within the app? It is terrible what they do to the geese, it is torture and should be banned. Please remove this. I am finding the products are incorrect with the points value such as Dr McDougalls soup cups, they are one serving per container and it is showing as two. Do you check to see if people are adding the products correctly?
Ha Choo!'s Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 11/16/18 1:59 PM
Overall, I am very pleased with this app. The database is large and it definitely is an alternative to those who have used the WW app points tracking. My only disappointment is that with having paid for the upgrade, I sometimes have to search up to 3, sub databases to find an item. I would have preferred a single search field that would search all the sub databases. The scan function is excellent and I have found every product easily that has a scan code. I would highly recommend this app, especially, the pay for upgrade.

I had high hopes for this app as an alternative To MyFitnessPal. Tracking is limited. I had to keep manually adding food I scanned which was not necessary on MyFitnessPal. I was also trying to see some info re micronutrients for the day that MyFitnessPal offers in its free version. I can see this iTrackBites being useful for those that need lots of guidance with what to eat, how much, and more defined guidelines on what an average healthy meal plan looks like. Otherwise I found it frustrating and useless...and went back to MyFitnessPal. I might come back to ITrackBites again, give it another go especially if I learn some new feature about the app that I wasn’t aware of. The app definitely has its place, I just couldn’t find its place w me.

I’ve tried many weight loss apps and have never had the success with this app. I’ve lost 15 lbs in about two months and still using. It is not the easiest app to use and takes some figuring out but it works. It helped show me foods I thought were good to eat were really not as good and I was eating too much of. However, be prepared to spend money after buying the app. The app is pretty much useless without many of the in app purchases especially the online database. I would rather see one IAP for everything than bits and pieces or just one upfront price in the store. That being said, the app works and worth the money.

Sometimes I already know the points value and would like not to have to enter the nutritional value because I don't always know it. Being able to enter points without the hassle of trying to figure that out would be great. *update* I figured out how to add in points for foods that I already know the points for. This app is great! I'm so glad I found it as I have not been able to locate my books for the classic version and the points plus plan does not work for me for whatever reason.

When using recipe builder and you put in a item that of course u need to add the box for they make it impossibly complicated because it measures only in cups.

I will give it credit that it lets you use the scanner when using recipe builder and ww does not.

androook's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 10/22/17 5:53 PM
Pros: ▪️ Has smart points calculations Cons: ▪️ Poor design and experience in the community section ▪️ Poor design when compared to WW or ProTracker Plus ▪️ limited food database unless you pay $6 more in in-app purchases. ProTracker and WW both come with a great UI and Database as part of the normal costs (and ProTracker is a single, one-time purchase). I cannot stress how limiting this is. The only food list you get for free is the list provided by the FDA. Want to scan that hamburger bun to get the points values? Pay up. Are you searching for beer? Pay again. This is especially difficult for people utilizing iTunes family sharing as each user will have to purchase the in-app purchases in order to have normal usage of the app. Also, these paid lists do not seem to be updated frequently. ▪️ UI freezes up when searching FDA list on occasion ▪️ Backups require yet another in-app purchase (no iCloud saving for free even though it's free for developers to implement). This app is fine for tracking, so long as you know going into it that it’s going to cost you. I just wish it didn’t feel like an app I would make in college.
bandyt878's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 10/2/18 3:07 AM
To upgrade the app gave me the impression is was 1 or 2.99 per month. And then it mentioned a total per year cost well when they give the monthly amount that was what I thought I was paying but no they yanked the money for a full year and what a waste that was the upgrades weren’t worth it. Now I’m paid for a full year anyways. Nice ripoff!!

BayouSister's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/8/18 1:35 PM
I really like this app. I have never used anything like this before, not even WW app, and I have been able to figure it out. It's very user friendly and there is a community group in app where you can ask questions. There are in app purchases to complete the app and get all the features and but it was worth it to me. You can purchase them individually for about $2 a piece or get the bundle which is what I did. They bundle them all together for $5.99 which was a small price to pay in my opinion--better than $20 a month for WW. Very pleased I decided to get this app.

Disappointed that they haven’t update to match WW Free Style program! Loved it before the change!
Larrylane's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/7/18 3:04 AM
Love this app. I love WW smartpoints and am able to do it with app for a lot less cost than WW. Thank you for making this app. It took a little while to figure it out but finally got it. Love it.

Today January 7 app just started crashing every time I open it. Please fix it because this is a great app. I truly love it.
Hay Day AA's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/6/18 2:07 PM
The only improvements I would suggest is to have the search tool search all the add one at one time. I often use search when I’m in favorites and I’ll have to go back and tap online then type the search again. Also wish it preloaded hits as you type. Other than that it’s top notch!
Zeldagirl's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/6/18 12:52 PM
Love the app. Needs update to the new program ASAP.
Pandasj's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/5/18 2:10 AM
This app used to be great, but it is kind of outdated now. Searching for foods on the “Online” section is difficult. Also when entering multiple food items in from a restaurant, it takes you back to the menu. It should keep the restaurant list open. The app is great because I don't have to spend $20 a month like WW, everything works the same. I really wish they would add more restaurants.

App is easy to use. If you have any familiarity with W.W. plan and how it works it basically the same but cheaper!

Why is my app crashing. Will I have to pay again to reload it

Typical app, as soon as you download it use it for a few days it crashes as soon as they get some of your money.
Italianchick7's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/31/18 4:07 PM
I have been using this app for less then a month and have lost 7 lbs and my husband has lost 10 lbs since we started using it!🤗 It might not be exactly up to date with the weight watchers program but it is still extremely helpful to use. I LOVE the bar scanner to tell you the point value in food products!! Soooo much easier then taking out the points calculator on every item 🙄. Such a time saver!!! I told my mom about it and now she uses it all the time and loves the app! She said it’s been a huge help and eye opener to what food she’s been having around. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! ❤️❤️❤️

AgentO2's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/3/18 8:14 PM
I was a WW member for 4 years and lost over 60 lbs. I was over the moon to be down to my pre-baby weight after years of losing a little then gaining a lot. The only complaint I have is that, once you’re a lifetime member, there’s no real incentive to stick with the program and it becomes more of a chore than a goal. I’ve gained most of my weight back after quitting the program and I’m trying new things to fit my lifestyle. This is the perfect app for me. It’s exorbitantly cheaper than being a WW member even after purchasing all the add-ons (highly recommend), I don’t have to pay a monthly fee if I don’t weigh in when I should, it’s easy to navigate (after a little exploration), and my wallet thanks me. Two suggestions. First one, it would be nice to have the option of tracking the time of day for meals so I could see what needs to change (am I not eating enough breakfast?, am I snacking too much?, what time of day is my “weakest”...). Second one, a diary option. So I could correlate if my eating habits are emotional or hormonal. Thanks for supplying an awesome app that I can support :)

This app is a lifesaver! It does all I need to keep losing weight without the hefty monthly fees of other weight loss programs!!
54jwhite's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/3/18 1:50 PM
I have been using the app for 3 months and love it! So handy to have it on my phone and see what I’m eating. I have lost 17 pounds and it has made me so aware of the difference in foods points and quantity. So easy and so helpful in tracking what I need and what I can exchange for allowing me to make better choices. Eating out with the app close at hand makes me more aware of the right choices and keeps me on track to make good decisions on how I want to use those points. Love it!!!!
Mrsmort2009's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/29/18 5:42 PM
Was a Online Plus member with Weight Watchers. Successfully lost 44lbs. Due to some financial crisis I couldn’t afford the $19.99/mo fee. Until someone referred me to this app. It’s perfect ! Works just like Weight Watchers.
Ixin22845's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/29/18 5:20 PM
This is the biggest conglomerated mess I've ever seen. Wasted my money getting this. Apparently, the only way you'll be able to use this is if you've used Weight Watchers app for quite some time. It gives you very, very little info on foods, unless you buy other in app purchases. The only way I've found to get info, is to google a particular food and enter all the nutrition information manually into the app. REALLY?! Why do I need this app then? Wish I could get my money back.

I was almost to goal on points plus when WW switched to smart points. I have been floundering ever sense. I love getting my Wendy’s Jr. Frosty back for 5 pts! I wish I had found this app sooner!
bellanotte03's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/27/18 6:03 AM
I cannot express my thanks to the developers of this app. I lost almost 40 pounds since mid May doing Weight Watchers. Then came FreeStyle and I’ve fluctuated between 38.2 and 39.6 pounds lost since December 12th. I was really unhappy and frustrated, and I loved the previous SmartPoints Beyond the Scale program. This app is a life saver! I’m back to the Points system that I love and I feel in control of my food once again. Once you sync it to FitBit, you’ll have the perfect app. Thank you again!
Mom mich's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/27/18 11:42 PM
So easy to track! Love the scanning option so you know how many points!
JwlRbrts99's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/27/18 11:00 PM
I like the use of this app after a week. There’s a couple small things that could be improved for my use. 1) When scanning products, doesn’t turn on camera light and makes it hard to scan when there are shadows present. 2) Needs to be able to link with FitBit! I’ve found different theories of how to convert steps to minutes, but not sure how accurate they are. 3) Trying to figure food point value now with the Freestyle Plan is kind of a pain. Can’t wait for the next update to see if any of my issues will be resolved, I know I’m not the only one patiently waiting!
Lou734's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/26/18 5:41 PM
I love this app. It gives me freedom to choose what plan I want to use. Unlike WW they change plans and we all have change with them even if we are happy and doing well on the older plan. They don’t care. So I am happy I have choices now. Thanks ITrackBites!!
Aynge_'s Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/25/18 9:59 AM
Will you be adding the new freestyle plan? Also can you add a row to where you have more than one item of food like two breads instead of just writing it twice. And a journal section because we all know weight loss is mainly mental and emotional. Also the big thing I personally want is like a way to use my weekly points without having to use up all my daily. Like you press the weekly number and it goes to another page of boxes that are unticked and you tick them or some other way. You get what I’m saying ? Lol I don’t explain myself well. I cannot love without this app btw xoxo
JohnMP's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/22/18 2:37 AM
I seemed to find very few alternatives to volume amounts. Lack of alternatives rules out use of kitchen scale. Very disappointing.
StarmanDX's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/21/18 9:41 PM
Yet another app that does literally nothing other than force you to create an “account” with undisclosed terms of service and privacy policies. I have no idea if the app is functional at all because I’m not giving away my personal information to some random guy. Save your money and use a spreadsheet.
tiktik-tanash's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/21/18 9:33 PM
As a previous member following “the plan” successfully I have to say this app and the associated information is outstanding and the best of what is available. It is complete, fully thought through and easy to use. Love it!
Mommyof2cutiepies's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/21/18 4:40 PM
This is by far the best app for using the old-style weight watchers classic points. I can’t get any easier than this… You can even scan the barcode of your favorite food boxes and it automatically comes up with the points. It couldn’t be any easier if you tried.
Knitkitty57's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/21/18 1:44 PM
I love this app. The Weight Watchers app is to expensive if you are a Weight Watchers member and this app does basically the same thing except for not being able to chat with someone from weight watchers. Love it.

I was so sad when Weight Watchers changed to the Freestyle program. Now I can continue to track my 30 points. That's what works for me.

Row..'s Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/2/18 4:08 PM
So I paid $3.99 to try out this app, but you really don’t get access to much with paying another $5.99 for access to all the food guides and another $1.99 for the recipe builder function. If I knew I’d like what those extras have to offer, I’d do it, but I’m not spending any more money on this app when I can’t see what’s available on those guides. And the foods you can track using just what you get for $3.99 are limited.

I’ve used this in the past after I want d to stay in points plus when smart points came out, but it doesn’t work anymore. When I open it, it crashes.
fubu grrlie's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/15/18 7:51 PM
I can’t say enough good things about this app. I’ve used Weight Watchers off and on for years and always somehow found myself veering off and canceling my membership out of guilt because I felt like I was wasting money. A discouraging, vicious cycle. But no more – now that I’ve been using this app I’ve lost nearly 25 pounds and gained peace of mind that if I do have a setback or two, it’s okay and I can keep going because I’m not paying a monthly membership fee. I have the freedom and flexibility to follow this plan as closely or as loosely as I want and I never feel guilty because of money. This app has been a true lifesaver and one that I will most likely be using for the rest of my life. I purchased everything except for the snack guide and it was all WELL worth it. Highly recommended if you want to get serious about losing weight the healthy way but want to do it on your own terms without being chained to subscription.

Great app ... all the functionality at a fraction of the cost of other similar traci by systems. The barcode scanner is fantastic and backed up by a huge library of items. 95% of everything in our pantry scans with one touch.
Jetto24's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/11/18 7:49 PM
I think the app is top notch. I do think by giving the ability to Apple Watch or Fitbit to auto upload activity and translating it to points would be a MAJOR upgrade. Please consider this if you haven’t already.
Thompson90's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/10/18 9:22 PM
Have been on and off points for 10 years. Use it just to help me get back on track. This app is a great alternative to paying for a online subscription. The bar code reader is worth it alone for grocery shopping. Only wish they would separate meals and allow whole meal tracking under favorites. Both are easy to get use too.
Iwant2b125's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/10/18 9:04 PM
I’ve only been on here four days and I can’t say enough good things about this app, I love how user friendly it is to use, I love the community page, there’s tons of information to read and you have the opportunity to also share your own thoughts or to ask questions, this app is amazing. There’s just no way anyone could be hungary with the points they encourage you to use. I love this app!
Adamflyers's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/10/18 2:26 PM
Let’s face it, this is the poor person’s weight watchers. For a small price, you get a very similar product to weight watchers. It’s definitely not as clean, but again, it’s a fraction of what you would be paying monthly to weight watchers and so far I have gotten similar weight loss results. I started with the Smart plan, but found that I was starving myself because things like apples were 5 points. I was burning though my points too fast, so I switched to the Plus plan. That one seems to be closer to the current WW point calculations and I have been more successful with it. If you don’t feel like taking on another monthly bill and need to drop some pounds, give this a try!
Carolxxx's Review of ItrackbitesReviewed on 1/10/18 1:56 PM
I am starting to love this app. After just going back to WW, I need an easy way to count points. This does it. The downside is I have to create my own food/point list, unless I want to buy their list. The upside is that as I add foods, they become easy to add in future meals. Or, I could buy their food list. We’ll see.
