Searching For That Perfect App

Lose It!

Currently testing the Lose It app.

I’ve been searching for a nice weight loss tracking app. I’ve been very happy with my Weight Watchers app, but i would like it to do more to help keep me on track. I can’t use it to log my workouts. I can’t build recipes with it or move ingredients from the recipes the app does contain over to the app’s grocery list function.

So for the last couple of months I’ve been test driving different apps. I have yet to find one that can dethrone WW. However, the one I’m trying now – Lose It – is giving WW a run for its money. I’ll have a review up in the next few days.

However, I just need to vent about one thing consistent with the apps I’ve played with so far.

If you are building a weight loss app and program it to track carbs, then you better show me NET carbs (total carb count minus fiber)! This is far more important to me than total carbs.

If your app can’t do that, then you should not market that it tracks carbs. Or you should at least let those of us going low-carb know that you don’t track net carbs.

Now you may ask yourself, “Hey Dottotrot, why don’t you just use a carb counter like Atkins to track net carbs?” I have and it sucks. Plus, I don’t want to have to use a special app just to track net carbs. I’m looking for something easy to use where I can do ALL of my weight loss tracking. Now build it!

Rant is over.
