The app has a very simple purpose, and that is to help you view your progress in getting fit and not losing the progress, without opening the website, and just by tapping once on the app’s tile in Start Screen.

The lines of the graphs are pretty clear and very easy to understand.

However there’s a big feature, that is missing from the app, and that is: it doesn’t lets you manually enter the logs. That is, you can’t enter what you had in breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack. For these you have to open the dashboard in website again, and enter them manually. Though, the app does have the ability to connect to the Fitbit tracking devices, using which you can automatically sync the data of the tracker with the app.
