  • Good but could be better

    By 地球守れ
    The app is beautiful and intuitive, but right away there are a couple things that I feel are missing. You can't record the time that I eat my meals. If you do intermittent fasting, OMAD, or other diets where the timing of your meals is important, this is a serious shortcoming which is not even provided in the paid version. I'm going to shop around with other apps before deciding to pay or not. I think the free version of the app should also allow you to set your own daily calorie goals as well, and the option to track your waist size shouldn't be a paid feature as it comes native to the Health app already. I'm still impressed with the ease at which I can add foods to keep track of my meals but I'm not completely sold on this app yet.
  • Elegant but seriously flawed; love the idea, needs fixes to be effective

    By zbeckman
    Lifesum Bottom Line: An elegant interface but significantly flawed and inaccurate implementation make it easy to get the wrong results. I love the idea but the bugs and incorrect data must be fixed before Lifesum can be used effectively. The good: Elegant user interface that is easy to understand and makes it clear where my nutrition is, both at the meal and day level. Fun and easy to understand goals. Nice selection of meal plans and goals, and easily customized. I particularly like the Scandinavian plan. A reasonable price for an annual subscription, which is necessary for Apple Health syncing. The bad: Not enough information about the meal plans and goals. Unclear why certain macro levels are selected. The app incorrectly calculates using different measurements. For instance “2% Organic Milk” is 14 calories per ounce, and 1772 calories per tablespoon. (So my 1 tablespoon of milk gives me 118g protein, 192g carbs, and 73g fat!) Sometimes the app gets very confused about time and loses a day’s with of information. Right now it’s Wednesday. The app is showing me information for Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday (tomorrow)... and Wednesday appears to have no data. When I check back on Sunday, now Thursday shows no data in the log even though I logged every day this week. Search does not work well. For example “blueberries” returns things like “bluebbery pie” but not berries; strangely, searching “blueberry” returns “blueberries” at the top of the list. Finding the right food is often a frustrating exercise. Many barcoded items are incorrect. I’ve scanned several and found the nutritional data to be completely wrong. This means I have to create my own food, and remember to avoid the barcode scan. Identifying foods with bad nutritional data is constant and tedious. There is no way to correct bad nutritional data in the database (there is a “report” function but I have yet to see anything actually be corrected after making a report). Lifesum should consider not publishing every food people enter in their app – most foods have incorrect nutritional info, many are rife with spelling errors, etc. There are many duplicate food items, most of which are wrong. It’s always a challenge to find an accurate food item when wading through multiple, incorrect, versions of the same food. (Workaround: only use food items you create yourself and store in favorites – but that makes the food database useless). Too much clicking to perform repetitive tasks. Should be much easier to log the same data several times during the week. The menu management is confusing and doesn’t let me create complete meals. For instance I can create a “pasta and sauce” recipe and a “cookies” recipe but I cannot add recipes to a “meal.” This means tracking my actual meals is a repetitive process where I have to pick all the specific recipies and add in ingredients. Why can’t I create a meal from several recipes and reuse that meal? The user interface, while elegant, is a bit buggy. There are several pages with no exit method, although there is actually a hidden “back” button. Text entry is glitchy. The slide-up keyboard obscures controls making it difficult to navigate. Sometimes you have to touch around the screen to get the “next” button to appear. If you have an iPhone X, the back and cancel buttons at the top of the screen are too close to the phone controls so half the time you end up exiting the app. Most annoying is the depth you have to navigate to when creating food items. Lots of unnecessary tapping. Lifesum does NOT read water from Apple Health... so it’s always wrong if you track water in other apps. This makes me wonder what other things it should (but does not) read from Health. Related to the last point: Since the app doesn’t read information correctly from Apple Health, it reports the wrong health score. For instance: 1) Even though I log over 101 ounces of water a day, Lifesum thinks I never drink water. 2) It misinterprets exercise, I do 1-2 hours of functional training, plus swimming and walking, every day. Lifesum doesn’t recognize this as moderate or strength training. 3) Unlike Apple Health, Lifesum “doubles up” exercise data reported from multiple sources (say, a workout app and my Apple Watch). Even though both report activity at the same time Lifesum treats this as two workouts, doubling my calorie burn. While Lifesum does seem to respond to all support requests, there is no notification... so you will only know about the response if you go back into the support menu and look for it.

  • The dirtiest dark UX patterns I’ve seen yet

    By Bzzstfu
    Canceling this app has been a nightmare. It’s alright in some ways, but there are a few features that just don’t work for me. (I had premium for a year) Now the canceling process has been such a headache that I can’t in good conscience recommend this app to anyone.
  • No refunds

    By Lisepro
    I bought this app yearly by mistake, and they won’t give me a refund. Be careful with the customer service of this app.
  • App no longer syncing

    By BViPhone21
    App is no longer syncing with health data on iPhone. Would be 5 out 5 stars but been having issues recently.
  • Great app but some flaws

    By spiderman davis boi
    Hello, this is a great app and it’s helped me a lot making sure I don’t go over my 13,000 or 1,300 something like that calorie budget, this app helped me a lot with tracking what I eat and what I need to eat more of and cut back on, but the thing is, I took that test and it had this meal plan that I should have to lose weight, the only thing is that I can look what’s inside , I get the app has to make money somehow but it’s really annoying when I see some breakfast lunch or dinner food that looks good and I can see the ingredients to make it and if I want to I have to upgrade to premium witch I don’t have the money for. I’ve been struggling with weight loss a lot and I don’t get to eat much healthy food since I have so many cravings, the app can respond to this and take this information and update the app so I can view the foods and stuff so I can have a more health diet and stuff please do - E
  • Never even was able to use the app

    By ashuttles
    WELL, I would love to write a review of the actual app if I could. BUT, I couldn’t even get logged in to the app because I never got past the general information page, where they ask for age, height, current weight and goal weight. It kept telling me the “Too low BMI” when I put in my goal weight - even if I put the weight as 1 pound less than my current weight. Or if I put my current weight as 50 lbs heavier than I was. I tried several different weight combinations with no prevail to get past this page. I tried looking up this problem online and found no answer. Therefore, this app went straight to delete and I guess I’ll try another one!
  • Love this App but would like 1 Modification

    By littlelottie'sangelofmusic
    So, I had this app a couple years a go and really enjoyed using it. I took a break to use a different tracking app and didn’t like it as much, so came back to the premium subscription for this one. I am an athlete and require a lot of calories for my daily allowance, and the issue I have with this app is that I cannot type in the specific number of calories I need as my base. I like that the macro allowance can be altered, but I’m still needing to journal outside of this app to account for the other 400 cals + macros I need for my daily allowance. If we could have the option to click on the daily calories and type in our goal amount or calories that would be awesome.
  • Extreme Diet Plan

    By Galaxygirl22161
    I downloaded the app, hoping to get a good diet plan, but I didn’t get something that was good at all. I took the test to see what diet is fine for me and it told me to fast for two days.. a week.. This does NOT seem healthy whatsoever and may promote an eating disorder. I recommend the creators to not give away this diet plan.
