1. Please allow us to use our personal recipes within the calorie counter app.

2. Since the latest update to the Android version I've encountered several bugs. This includes not being able to remove or edit foods from my daily food journal. Pressing on them will only initiate a "saving" message.

3. Someone really needs to clean up the food database. There are way too many duplicate entries for the same food with different values. There are also a lot of entries with just the measurement "serving" There should always be an actual weight/volume entry.

4. People are changing foods in the database and making them inaccurate. How about a verification process before a new food is added or an existing one is changed?

I've found a lot of those are different countries versions of the same products. That's why I've started adding "(UK)" to the end of any product I add made by an international brand.

Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

riocaz, thanks...that's a good idea. They should really put that as an entry field when the food is added/changed.

I entirely agree. But I would prefer they fix the site problems first before adding new features.

People being unable to update their challenges/ weight history for weeks and months at a time being a priority!

The problems continue with the latest update. App force closes often and once again a food I entered became "stuck" in the phone app, but couldn't be seen/changed online or on another mobile device despite syncing. I finally had to erase cache and data on the phone to clear up the issue.

I would suggest removing the app and re-installing, if you haven't already. The update may have broken something & I have found with other apps (usually facebook) that a re-install fixes most problems.

The app after update works perfectly on my s3. But different phones/different versions of android will yield vastly differing results.

Something to add Smile When I first got the app for my phone (a Droid) last night, it wanted me to sign up, but didn't give me an option to use my log in. I figured I would "skip" through the process and then log in, but now that I've skipped through, there doesn't seem to be an option to log-in or even create an account?

It used to be part of the "sync" function IIRC

I appear to have jinxed myself by saying it works on my galaxy s3. I've noticed the last couple of days I am no longer able to add some foods to the food log via the app, but which foods seem random so I thought I was being stupid.. I tried adding green peas yesterday, 3 times, and eventually gave up and did it manually via the web interface (still on my phone)...

One thing that bothers me about the Android App, is that well, in the site, I can only search and include on my food log products registered in english, while on the android app, I can only do it with products registered in portuguese(I'm brazilian).

It's ridiculous really, if I include things from the app, all my diet log will be in portuguese and vice-versa.
I started my weight loss journey seriously on oct 18 of 2012, and so far:

I have had no bugs to speak of....I just don't like the new format for "most eaten" and "recently eaten".

It no longer allows you to change the meal

I.e. I will take leftovers from dinner and eat them for lunch the following day; therefore, I used to go to recently eaten in the dinner menu and check off the same items and then change the meal to "lunch"...this is no longer possible without choosing each item individually so it takes a lot more time.

I got a Droid Razr maxx in November and downloaded fatsecret. Unlike on my old blackberry, I don't see "most eaten" and "recently eaten" when I go to add foods. Does anyone know how to get to these on a Droid? I sync with my computer, and other things I sync are available. I hate it that I can't really enter foods on the Droid because I can't find "most eaten" and "recently eaten." I think it's so essential to keep track of what I"m eating, but the Droid FS makes it hard. Please HELP!
