  • Good start but want more.

    By adesinacat
    I just started working with a dietitian and have started to “eat the rainbow” to improve my diet. This app is only 1 of 2 that I find that track food by color. The other ONLY track fruit and veggies, so I picked this one. I only just started using it, but love the interface more then more popular food tracker apps. The number one reason I only gave 4 stars is that while it says it syncs with Health App, many items don’t sync data, but just an entry. Meaning, I have about 5 entries that I had potassium today (one I am focusing on), each entry is 0. I would like for ALL the data to sync and not just the most popular. I plan on also sending this info to the developer directly since I know not all read the reviews.
  • Brilliant!

    By BlackhawkPizza
    Awesome idea, track the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you take in and see what you’re lacking and what foods you can eat to make up the difference. I wish there was an option to plan a weeks worth of meals and you could see what the nutritional intake would on any given day. You could then get recommendations on snacks that would fill the voids. Recommend highly!
  • Complete crock

    By Adams and Franklin
    Complete waste of time. Don’t waste your money on this app. I could find the nutritional value of “egg” at the main branch of the New York Public Library than through the food diary search. This is a scam.
  • App not working

    By 10+ year user
    App won’t let me log in... unusable. It was good before, but now I just get a message saying I lost my connection. Please fix. I have the pro version and would like to use what I paid for.
  • Useful

    By victorflrafael
    This app is great!! This needs more publicity. it's better than MyFitnessPal when it comes to track vitamins and minerals. I don't like how when inputting my personal macros it has to be percentages instead of grams. But the percentages should still be shown. The nutritional tracker is really good.
  • Great App but Glitches

    By Cam2Zak2
    I like how easy this app is to use and it’s extensive database however it crashes on me a log and now it can’t connect to the network so I can’t even use it. No place to report bugs for app support either. So great idea but poor execution?
  • I like it! Missing a few things, though

    By Rose Russ
    I have been using this app semi-regularly for three years, especially when I was underweight and trying to build back up in a healthy way. I love tracking micronutrients in my food— to me that is much more interesting than just tracking calories and macros. But my husband teases me about my love for Wholesome, because the database is relatively small, and because sometimes the food recommendations can feel a bit contradictory. (For example, I’ll be “in the red” for total sugars, over 50g, but under in carbs and my suggested foods will be cassava and raisins. Or I will be “over” in fat, but it will be suggesting nuts or bacon for their other micronutrients.) It isn’t perfect yet, but it has helped me see what nutrients I consistently don’t get enough of in my diet and gives me a chance to look back on my eating patterns. Things I want “fixed”: —An easily accessible user feedback form —Why do none of the entries for sardines include Omega 3 content? Same for herring, and mussels (which you must search for as “mollusks, mussels, blue”— thanks USDA) — Could iodine be added to the things we track? It’s important enough to supplement in our salt, and useful to track for people keeping an eye on thyroid health. —Could we select which days to average in the “my nutrition” section? I love the averages, but they are so skewed if I miss even one day of tracking. —Someday I would like to be able to break fat down by type. Not essential, but it would be interesting.
  • Facebook required?

    By cae140
    No where prior to installing this app does it say you must have a Facebook account to use it. Not everyone has Facebook. Very disappointed
  • No tracking without pay

    By 1:Ohio:1
    They discuss being able to track the micronutrients but it’s behind a $4 paywall. I would have considered it if they offered a trial but with 3.5 star review average I’ll have to pass
  • Not accurate!!

    By Berglehouse37
    I have loved the idea of this app and used it often for a few years, but whenever I enter my own food or vitamins, it adds nutritional value where I haven’t added anything. I was adding my B vitamin values and it added 800% vitamin D, plus saturated fat and protein!? Deleting the values doesn’t seem to help. As you scroll to others, values are added back. I’ve been surprised and curious at times when I enter foods I eat and they have a much higher nutritional value than I anticipated — probably because they aren’t accurate. This glitch has been happening for at least a year... I don’t see the value in this app if the nutritional values aren’t accurate.
