I paid the $3.99 for the app. Why? No ads!

MFP is free, but the ad banner is annoying. I would've paid $3.99 to upgrade to ad-free...but I'm not using MFP anymore.

$3.99 shouldn't break anyone's bank. If it's worth having, then it's worth $3.99. It's so funny to read how $4 is a worthy crisis when we easily spend more on the foods we eat that are either on or off plan.

If it's worth it, buy it. If not, then use the web version on your phone. Besides, why not support the Site that's helping you get into a better state of health?

I have the app on my android tablet but the choices for fitness tracking are different than what is available online. For example, "group strength training class" is not an option. Any idea when they may update the app?

I am just getting re-involved with Sparkpeople. However, $3.99 for the app? I might have paid $.99 just to integrate all my SP stuff. but not for 3.99 - especially when My Fitness Pal and Fibit are free. And as someone else said, MFP also lets you scan bar codes!

Disappointed..

If you have an android phone you can go into your google account and get it from your android apps
That's what I did when I got a new phone.

I had the free app and had to reboot my phone. When I went to install the app again, it said it was $3.99. Is there no free app anymore? The fitness pal app is free and it allows you to scan items too (which I didn't think the spark people one did - from what I recall). Is it possible to get the free app again?

I JUST got a smartphone... and was disappointed to see that the SP nutrition tracker app was $3.99 when fitbit & myfitnesspal apps are free.

I did download the SP Healthy Recipes app since it's free... and that's cool.

And, I do have a shortcut on my phone to Login SP... just find it more difficult to enter food into the tracker via the site on the phone. Going to stick with my memory + a computer for now.

As of Friday (I believe) there is a small charge for our moblie apps. This is because of the cost and resources to develop the programs, etc.
