This app, like so many others have said, has great potential. However I think I have wasted my money in the end unless this company does some major changing. One of the most interesting things I noticed is the lack of recognized barcodes for foods. I find myself having to manually add in almost all of my food options. The search function also needs some major work. When you search different food items, it does not narrow down based on the actual words you put in... it instead will bring up any and all options that include any of the single words you typed which is not helpful. I spent most of my time scrolling for several minutes only to end up manually adding in the simple food item. There is also a lack of options for measuring the different food items. For example, if I search “broccoli, raw” and click the item I like, it will force you to measure by ounces to recalibrate the caloric and nutritional value. There is no option to select grams, cups, etc.
**** Everyone should know that you are going to be constantly notified by the app with a pop up when using it for another “challenge” which costs MORE money. These pop ups happen everyday. Look, I already spent $60 and have yet to see the “personal coaching benefits” I paid extra for. The last thing I want is a pop up ad to pay MORE money. The only way to exit it is to accept the challenge over and over again then back out of it. It’s extremely annoying and seems kind of pointless to have that pop up everyday when I have clearly expressed that I do not want to pay for an additional “challenge”. ***
The workouts do not seem challenging enough and do not address the muscle groups that they describe. Almost all of the exercises whether entry/medium/high etc all appear to be the same, they just build off of each other. I do not like that the workouts are 15 minutes. If I want to do another workout, it makes me find another one to do instead of increasing the challenge in my existing workout program.
Overall I am quite disappointed and feel mislead based on the screen shots they advertise with this app. Wish I had read more of the reviews to realize this was not going to be for me. I would suggest using a more developed app like my fitness pal to track nutritional intake and purchase a separate workout app. This one doesn’t do it for me!
Lastly, I urge you to make the changes your reviewers are suggesting rather than comment on each review to give some generic response! This app has such great potential!!
I really wanted to give this a try. Had the free version for a while so said why not. The workouts are tailored to your goals which is rlly a nice touch and different than any other app I have used. They get points for that.
But! And it’s a big BUT. After purchasing there’s not really anything added from the free version aside from simple log/tracking, most of which it just grabs from the iPhones health app anyway. You get these ads for extra “challenges” that are like 30-60$, not included. The tracker doesn’t let you log your own work outs which you will need to do some Bc theirs feels like it misses a few things. It tends to force quit when doing the outdoor walk/running work outs. The meal logging also makes you do some guess work as to the weight of any item you eat so it’s not so accurate.. That being said, You will end up using several other apps to fill in where this one fails. They do have a great IG account with plenty of challenges and food/diet recommendations. They have a support person on your account you can reach out to as well which is nice. But again, There’s no reason to spend your money here, the price is kind of outrageous for an app considering how much better the competition is in this space.
I think the app has a nice layout and is pretty simple to use. However a few things Id like to see for paying 30 for this app!
-add your own workouts like say I went on a run in the day. Why not have an option to add that to the app? Instead of just completing the workout they choose.
-it must be from the UK or something because a lot of foods you can’t just look up to add to the calorie counter. I have to look up the ounces on everything instead of just coming up what the container is.
- unless you’re eating packaged food all day you have to look up how much each thing is you ate. Like say you had steak, a regular steak is at the very bottom of the list. Or sometimes it’s not even on the list.
- the calorie ALWAYS adds 3.53 oz of food. Why not make it cups an easy measurement for us to use instead of having to look up how many ounces are in a cup of almonds? Or a cup of popcorn, or a cup of milk.
- was really excited about my “personal” meal plan. When they just think keto is going to work for everyone. Well it’s not. And there is no way to change it.
Pretty disappointed in the app especially after paying SO MUCH for it.
For the cost of using this program it could be set up much better. The food tracker part is seriously lacking. I can not even accurately use it. So I’m paying monthly to use the app, but I have to use a completely different app to accurately track food which is a hassle. The food can only be recorded in ounces. If I am eating a cheese stick on the go, I have no idea how many ounces it is. If you scan it on the app it may show up as a kraft Colby cheese stick, but you still can only document it in ounces. You can’t just log one cheese stick with the correct nutrients. Several items I have used are not in the database. If you have to manually enter the item, you can only enter the calories. When watching carbs, proteins, and fats, only being able to record calories is not efficient. All the food that is not in the database for this app are in the database on other apps with accurate measurements. Any challenges you want to do have to be paid for on top of the regular cost. The program is not that well set up to account for the cost of using it. There are much better apps available that are significantly cheaper.
I love this app, I like the meal plans, the exercises, everything is great, but 4 days ago I started having problems with viewing my plan, and meal options, everything goes blank and it looks like if It’s downloading... only option is to delete the app, download it and sign in again, after doing this, the app works again, but data and history is gone... and this is happening every night...
Other thing that I think it will be very useful is if you could have more options for the measuring units when logging in your food, example: cups, tbs, and not only ounces, also to have the option of saving previous foods and choose from there, so you don’t have to type everything again, app saves a few or the last ones, but not all of them..
One more thing that it will be very helpful is that if your meal options could change and update when you change your meal plans.. Example: from 5 foods to 2 and snack, etc... right now you have to delete data, and start al over again...
I would give more stars but this problem of downloading and reloading every night is making me not to enjoy the app.
I gained a lot of weight over the years after having two kids. I didn’t want to join a gym since I’m a busy mom. So it was important to me to find an app geared towards beginners with exercises that didn't need special equipment and could be done at home. I came across BetterMe app and decided to give it a go. In my opinion, it is way more affordable than regular sessions with a personal trainer or nutritionist. Not gonna lie, I was a bit skeptical about the workouts since I’m a total beginner. Each workout (I started with those targeting butt and arms) was super intense but doable. The app provides detailed workout, nutrition, and body measurement planning, tracking, and analysis.
Meal plans are super customizable and I really like that. As someone with too many dietary restrictions, I loved that I could select specific ingredient to leave out. I give it 4 stars since I'm not sure that all the exercises are knee-friendly. I think that some people should take this fact into account before starting some workouts.
This app is terrible. It has mediocre work outs that can be found anywhere online. They’re not even challenging. They’re pathetic.
They have these recipes that include fake photos. The ingredients don’t even match to create what’s in the photo. The directions are vague and they don’t actually create what you’re looking at.
This company swindles you of money. I paid for a month subscription and I can’t even get into the app anymore.
I paid the $9.99 on the 20th and today is the 29th. I couldn’t even access it yesterday.
I also read through their “fine print” they literally say the company does not have to give you customer support, it is given at their discretion.
They even “gifted” me a meal plan, and it was something I could have created myself, because they do not have professionals working for them. Just probably some uneducated teens behind a screen.
They could not even spell Ingredients, correctly. “Ingridients” that’s what I got in my so-called meal plan.
What a terrible waste of money.
I came to be aware of this app after completing a survey to receive my “personalized” intermittent fasting plan. I also purchased the add on fat burning workout. I signed in to the app after paying a total of over $70. There is no personalization whatsoever. I reached out to their customer service and was told that I had the option to select my diet plan in the settings. Why on earth would I pay so much (or anything at all) for selecting an option I could find for free with a google search? There is no service provided. I’m confused about what I’m actually paying for. I also never received a receipt for my charges which seems sketchy. This seems like a complete scam. The responses I receive from customer service have been no help and completely ignored my questions about the fact that their website says a personalized plan is what is being purchased and that they don’t provide receipt for what is purchased. Deleting these apps and disputing the charges.
I purchased this app based on information I was given by an advertisement online. I thought I’d get a personalized meal plan, but did not. The app asks for your preferences on food, workouts and your goals. A lot of the foods I was provided were the foods I said I do not want. The app told me how many calories I needed to achieve my goals, but the foods for the entire day were not meeting that. The calories for the meals they provided were significantly less than what my goals were. I feel the plan is too expensive for me to have to work on a plan that was supposed to be provided. I attempted to get my money back the same day I purchased, but was unsuccessful in doing so. I contacted them and instead of receiving a refund, they gave me advice on how to use the app. The second time I contacted them, it was the same result. I do not recommend this app. During these tough times, I have lost $40 to something I will never use. Email #277197
I really like this app, paid the money for a year and I love the recipes. It has several options for lunch, dinner and a snack that are very easy to make and I have enjoyed the meals. I also like that it customizes to your lifestyle, for example I do intermittent fasting so it gave me a meal program for that lifestyle with great food options and not super restrictive. BUT I absolutely hate that this app is always loading. Every time I open it, it just has a circle that is spinning. I have great internet, all of my other apps are working and this one loads the first time maybe 1 out of 8 times. I have to force close the app and open it again, and even that does not work consistently. I have had to take a screenshot for the recipe and directions because it is not reliable enough to use while cooking. I have no idea why it is not working but I can barely use the recipes or workouts because it hardly ever loads when I open it.
