Basically, what it comes down to is the cost of maintaining the app. Yes, ads support the site itself, but they can't keep the app itself updated and maintained the way it needs to be. The site itself is and always will remain free, but staff has explained that in order to maintain their excellent service on the app, they needed to start charging for the new version.

You'll find a longer conversation about this here:

The last phone I had, had the mobile app on it and it was free. Now it is $3.99. That's quite a jump. Why did you start charging for it? I thought sparkpeople stayed free cause you put adds on the pages. Is the 3.99 the permanent price?
