New and Improved Food & Fitness Tracker for the iPhone!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, June 15, 2010



We wanted to let you know that we just released a new and improved version of our free Food & Fitness Tracker for the iPhone (and iPod touch). Now available in the iTunes app store, here are some of the improvements you'll get when you download this new version:

  • Ability to track strength-training workouts in the fitness section
  • Animated exercise demos
  • Full nutritional details for your foods (previously just showed calories, fat, carbs and protein)
  • Ability to copy meals from one day to another
  • If you’ve created custom meals on the site, they are now visible in the app
  • If you've created "food groupings" on the site, they are now available in the app on the Food Favorites screen.
  • Ability to search for full keywords on your food favorites and fitness sections (previously matched just the beginning of word)
  • Speed and stability improvements throughout
  • Bug fixes


We want to thank all of our members who have downloaded our free Food & Fitness Tracker for the iPhone or shared it with their friends to date. Don't forget that you can help us Spread the Spark by sharing this news with other iPhone users and/or by rating this app in the iPhone app store. Each good rating helps us to reach more people who might not otherwise know about SparkPeople!

And remember, we offer free apps for other smart phones, too. You can find and download them at www.sparkpeople.com/mobile.

    I can't believe this is no longer free.

    Are there plans to add a bar code scanner to the iPhone app? I feel like that's the only thing missing from SparkPeople - otherwise it's great!

  Why doesn't My fitness share between my iPhone and the website? I used the iPhone app most of the time and I nut my fitness there but it doesn't appear when viewed on web site. Works great for My Nutrition which shows up in both locations.

    I love the app when i travel. My wishes for future apps is a way to read the articles and get points for reading them. Also to be able to post on our sparkpage and spin the wheel would be great.

    Love it! I only wish that it was easier to add foods. There are other apps that allow you to add fast foods with a touch.

    I have an IPhone and love it. I can do everything except spin the wheel to get points because you can't download the Flashmedia.

    Whew! I thought it was just me who "lost" the decimal point! VERY frustrating after all the excitement I initially experienced with all the other improvements.

PLEASE bring back the decimal point! I am not always able to get internet access to use the decimal point on the webpage. Tracking is so important to my current and continued success!!!!!

Thank you in advance to your prompt attention to and resolution of this (presumably) unintended set back!

    I would like an app that you could use independent of the internet, I have an iTouch and don't have constant access to the internet. Plus I like the speed of tracking apps that aren't talking to the internet the whole time...
Just a thought.
I do think the app is SWEET, but just not as HANDY as an independent app that you sync to the website once a day or once a week... not every food, or exercise.

    Help, Help....
I'm a new user to the program and I'm getting frustrated with the measuring system. I don't have a ounce or digital scale. (Can Spark People add one to the product page with a low intro price?) When I try to convert with the converter, it's just not doable.
Bottom line, how much is o.3 cups of Hummus or 0.5 tbsp of Peanut Butter? Crackers, 0.75 oz? I FEEL like Charlie Brown when Lucy keeps moving THAT football!!!! There has to be a better way for the math challenged beginners to the system?

  I also don't have the decimal point - very frustrating as I like to log my weight every day and have to go online to log when I'm in the .5 category ... the .5 makes all the difference for us women :) Please give us back the decimal point! emoticon

    Thanks so much for this, especially the addition of the Food Groupings - I use them all the time, and this should aid my tracking a great deal. Have a wonderful day!

    I have this app on my Blackberry. I came across it when I was looking for a calorie counter. I dont think i would be able to count calories all day without it! Its probably not as sophisticated as the one for iphone but it allows me to search foods, add my favorites and track cardio and calories burned. It even has reports!
