The app is quite limited in terms of functionality. First of all, it does not have any info around calories contained in popular meals; you have to provide all the calories yourself. On top of that, it doesn’t even learn. So, if you tell it that you had bread in morning with 100 calories and then you tell it that you had bread in dinner, it won’t know that bread has 100 calories. Only thing it does is that it lets you log what you ate and lets you specify calories of those items. So, it is more of a calorie logger. Or, just a simple calculator. Or, a glorified excel. Or, something like that. Not really a calorie counter. No. I would rather go with online calorie counter websites that are much more intelligent.
