I wish the future update for iphone/ipad had a more hands on experience so that we could access most, if not all of the features that we can access on the website.

Also, what are your thoughts on the possiblity of adding a messenger for you and your friends to chat back and forth?

Hi Jen -- thanks so much for your response. The pie charts on the iPhone will tell you the percentage of each nutrient you have eaten in relation to your ranges (but only goes up to 100%, so if you have exceeded your goals, you can't tell how far you have exceeded).

The report I think would be helpful is the same pie chart that appears at the bottom of your printable full day's report -- the one that tells you your daily progress on what percent of your calories has come from each nutrient group -- for example, my %s are 40% carbs, 30% fat and 30% protein -- it would be helpful to be able to see how successful I've been daily on meeting those nutritional goals.

In particular, the additional nutrients that would be helpful in my opinion to be able to track from my phone are fiber, sodium and cholesterol. And it doesn't actually have to be tracked where we actually track food -- if we could see a daily summary or a report similar to the printable report on the website, that would be awesome.

Thanks so much.

Jena,

When I passed along your suggestions, here was part of the response from our staff:

In regards to the pie charts, that feature actually exists on the iPhone tracker. It's a little hidden. If you tap anywhere in the totals box at the bottom of the Food screen, 4 pie charts will appear with percentages for calories, carbs, fat and protein for the day.

Hope that helps!

Coach Jen

Hi -- just wondering if in the future you could add additional nutrients tracked on the iphone and ipad.

Also the pie chart that tells you the % of carbs, fat and protein you eat daily would also be an awesome addition.

Thanks so much
