Review of Spark People Perfect Produce app

Monday, November 04, 2013

I downloaded this today, it cost me 1.99. Right away I looked for three fruits/vegetables I was buying: Green Beans, Mushrooms, and Pomegranates.

There is no data for mushrooms or pomegranates. Nothing. It's as if they don't exist. As for green beans, the data was what was advertised: How to buy, handle, nutrition info, and recipes. This may be helpful on the produce aisle for me when I'm looking for inspiration, I'll have to see.

Having such an incomplete database gives me a negative impression of this app though. I wouldn't recommend it.

    I appreciate your comments about the app. It is too frustrating for me to use a database that lacks the common information I seek. Thanks!

    I've never paid for an app, myself, and would be really upset about this!

    It has always bothered me that Spark only lists "mushrooms, fresh" on the tracker, because there are so many varieties with completely different health benefits. *Sigh*

    I think $1.99 is a lot to pay for an app. And nothing about mushrooms? Are you kidding me? Pomegranates I kind of understand, because they are seasonal, rare, and difficult to prepare -- but mushrooms?!
