SparkPeople Spark iPhone/iPad Food and Fitness Application Users Team Messageboard In February 2009 we launched our first iPhone application! Food & Fitness Mobility at its best. This team is for users of this application to ask questions, provide feedback, and more. SparkPeople Spark iPhone/iPad Food and Fitness Application Users Team Messageboard BUG REPORT I tried to add several foods to my tracker, when I enter a decimal, the app crashes. I wanted to let the SparkPeople dev team know so they can fix it in the next update. Wed, 21 Sep 2016 18:16:17 EST New Member Hi, my name is Gail and I am new to the group. I am 71 years old and just found out I most probably am a diabetic. I want to try to eat healthier and lose some weight, so I don't end up on insulin shots. Would appreciate encouraging words once in a while, because I am not disciplined when it comes to sweets..please feel free to let me know when I am making mistakes in using Spark People apps, etc. Thu, 4 Aug 2016 00:03:47 EST I am using the iOS app - and it just broke! It always amazes me the kind of error messages that appear... The latest one, Thursday Jan 21 / 2016 was.. <BR> Error Retrieving Data -- The data couldn't be read because it isn't in the correct format. <BR> <BR> So what do you do with that kind of error message? Just go back to using the full website, I guess. Thu, 21 Jan 2016 15:24:54 EST Missing decimal point Since updating to iOS 9, the decimal point has found missing when adding a new food to the database. Sun, 4 Oct 2015 15:36:12 EST Hi I'm new here I went from android to IPhone in April. Had the IPhone 5 and just up grated to the IPhone 6 Plus. Still learning about the IPhone. Can be frustrating at times!! Tue, 8 Sep 2015 13:16:58 EST August 2015 Update - Mobile SparkPeople tracker Here's a Forum topic for those who have recently updated to the latest mobile tracker for SparkPeople. Thu, 13 Aug 2015 06:33:31 EST New here I'm Donna. New to the message part of SparkPeople. Tue, 7 Jul 2015 13:45:45 EST Please add the ability to sync with the iPhone App Are there any plans for this?? <BR> <BR> Thanks, <BR> Laura Thu, 23 Apr 2015 12:57:56 EST step tracking on iPad or iphone How do I track my steps on an IPad or iPhone? I need a way to manually enter the info. Fri, 30 Jan 2015 01:24:52 EST Never Ending Loading Wheel When the app is accessed on my iPhone 6 (iOS 8.1.2) the initial loading wheel that indicates the app is accessing my personal settings/info never goes away. The app is still fully functional, but the screen stays dimmed with the loading wheel stalled in place. Thu, 8 Jan 2015 23:11:04 EST New Team Member Hi All <BR> I'm new to the team, but not to Spark People. I use the app on my iPhone and iPad. I have recommitted 'AGAIN' to lose my excess weight. So far it's been a great week - even with being stuck in the house due to severe cold weather in the Chicago area. Thu, 8 Jan 2015 08:34:47 EST Offline Access / Add Favorites w/o Connectivity I've seen other posts addressing the same problem but so far there doesn't seem to be any response from the developers. I guess they don't actually check these boards, but if they do, the SparkPeople app is amazing with one exception - the fact that it requires internet connectivity in order to even open the app. This is insane. Much of the time, I want to create new food listings or select from my favorites and I do not have connectivity (no WiFi and data turned off, or in an area with zero ... Thu, 20 Nov 2014 19:13:24 EST Hi, new here! Looking forward to getting started! Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:05:34 EST GPS Tracker not working I noticed today that after the 10/13 update on the iPhone the GPS tracker is not working. The timer goes but it doesn't call on the location services. In the settings, you can go select always use location services. But, when you exit and go back into the settings that option has been cleared. Anyone else notice this? Wed, 15 Oct 2014 00:09:07 EST GPS Tracked exercise vs actual calories burnt I've been tracking my walks and been very pleased when 50 minutes at 6km/h I burnt 904 Calories = 90.4 calories every 10 minutes, but when I checked it against the sites own data I find I only burnt 70 calories or just over 300 calories - quite a big difference. Other sites support the lower figure. Has anyone noticed this contradiction and what's behind it? <em>41</em> Fri, 10 Oct 2014 16:03:50 EST Things changed and doesn't work the same on ihpone Sparkpeople changed things again. <BR> A lot of the functionality is missing and I can't stay on the full site to use the features there. <BR> <BR> I use the three horizontal lines at the top right to go to the full site. I get the login screen. I login and get kicked back to mobile. I go back and choose full site. <BR> Things look ok for a bit - I go to a team I am a member of, read a post, click on the person's picture to go to their sparkpage and I can't give a goodie and comments looks ... Wed, 1 Oct 2014 04:52:59 EST spark coach does anyone use it in here Thu, 28 Aug 2014 14:25:57 EST more with GPS I love the GPS tracking on the app, but I would love to be able to reference the info later on as well. After you hit the "save info" button, the map and the other info about that workout is gone. I would like to be able to tap on the workout and get back to that info for reference later. also, is there a place to add step-count on the app? I haven't found it yet. <BR> thanks! Sat, 26 Jul 2014 16:00:45 EST A year from now Well me and a friend are wanting to motivate each other to lose weight for our trip we're planning for next summer. <BR> I have turbo jam and turbo fire videos to try. Going to s tart on those. Should last me of this year. :) <BR> <BR> If anyone tried jam or fire, I would appreciate feedback. Thanks Sun, 13 Jul 2014 04:03:23 EST No decimal points I just upgraded my app on my iphone 5 and noticed the decimal points feature when adding new foods not listed is gone and I'm having to round up, could this be sorted out please for someone on low carb like me, there's a big difference between 4.5g of carbs and 5 <em>30</em> Tue, 29 Apr 2014 05:45:58 EST Hi! My name is Redgirl54. I am a type 2 diabetic and was diagnosed 4 years ago. I struggle with depression due to the diabetes. I joined Spark People on the first day of April. I have really enjoyed the tracking features for food and activity. This makes me very accountable. I need to lose a total of 37 pounds and I believe I will be successful. This weight did not come on in a few days and I know it will take several months and a lifetime of changes to accomplish my goals. My good friend introduced me to Spark... Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:47:56 EST New Member 80 two days ago. Feel great and grateful. Tue, 8 Apr 2014 16:55:16 EST Add Workout Generator to Fitness Tracking app I'd like to have a workout generator available on the app and not just the website--preferably available offline in addition to online since my gym/the park does not have wifi. If at all possible, it would also be nice to have the animated gif demo pics available offline as well. <BR> <BR> I know I can print off workouts from the website generator but would like to be able to access what I've chosen on my phone rather than bring a bunch of paper to the gym or to the park where I sometimes wa... Fri, 4 Apr 2014 13:02:33 EST Barcode scanner Hello, I just bought and downloaded the SparkPeople calorie counter diet app on my iPad. I love it. The only thing I would like to request is a barcode scanner for the app. I do mot have one on the app I have. Thank you. Sat, 29 Mar 2014 19:18:50 EST Ipad to iPhone app. Hello. <BR> <BR> One of the features I love the most about apple is the ICloud and the ability to use your apps on your ipad and phone. All my other apps work on both, but when I tried to upload spark app to my new iPhone the store is asking me to purchase the app again! :( is this right? Or is something not quite right? I have never come across this before with any other paid app Mon, 24 Feb 2014 09:13:07 EST Problems with the app Is anyone else having difficulties opening the app? I keep getting a error message stating that I need an internet connection when I already have one! This is frustrating at times when I just want to quickly log in my food, and don't want to go through Safari. Fri, 14 Feb 2014 02:25:53 EST Vitamin/m edication Tracker We know many people take and need vitamins supplements. No doubt getting it from you food is far better and recommended by most but there are still many people who has to take them on a daily bases for their health so seeing a tracker would be very beneficial to these people and people who just take them because they want to. Even a tracker for people on medication (like: high blood pressure meds,etc.) to help them to remember to take it. We want everyone to be as healthy as possible and we a... Tue, 4 Feb 2014 12:54:22 EST Weight loss in your 40's I am new to sp,but I have been trying for about a year to lose the 10 ponds that I gained. I really eat very good and I get lost of is it just not possible to lose those 10 pounds or should I speak about it to my obeying,maybe there are some hormone things going on,and can they do anything about them?

When I go on vacation, I always have to depend on the hotel computer for that as I don't bring computer with me. The tracking is great on phone and iPad but I don't want to lose my daily spin streak.

Unfortunately, there are 2 major functions that the free website does that the paid app does not: <BR> Under 'Food', you cannot run any reports that show tracking over a period of time such as weeks or months. Also does not show fiber and other tracked nutrients that the website does. <BR> Should probably have waited to buy it until it has all the same bad. <BR> Thu, 19 Sep 2013 21:11:31 EST Sodium and fiber tallies? Could sodium and fiber mg and gram tallies be added to the macronutrient and calorie tallies already present? It would really help me keep track of that aspect of my diet. When I'm not conscious about my fiber intake, I only get about 6 to 10 grams a day. I'm afraid to find out what my sodium intake looks like. But I know I can lower it with your help! <BR> <BR> I use my iPod tracker most, though I plan to upgrade to the iPad tracker when I reach 150#. Your apps are so easy and self-exp...

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 23:25:20 EST Where is the bar code scan feature? I'm getting back to teaming this week and I cannot find the barcode scan feature! I really need it. Please remind me where it is. Thanks! Thu, 15 Aug 2013 22:20:09 EST GPS tracker disappeared Hi, I went to use the GPS tracker today, but it is no longer showing in the "more" section or anywhere else. This was my most used part of the app (infact i almost exclusively use this, other updates i tend to do via the website on my ipad) as it was great to go for a walk and then automatically zap the info in to my tracker. Can you advise how I get it back please? Thanks. Thu, 15 Aug 2013 14:38:14 EST My app has disappeared! I have had the free SparkPeople iPhone app for quite some time, and have used it on and off. Today when I went to log in, it was gone from my iPhone. I went to my desktop to reload it from there and now its missing from the desktop computer! So I went to get it restored from the app store and now its $3.99. This leads me to think that somehow Spark has deleted the free app and somehow gotten it off the devices of anyone who had it. Anyone know what's going on? Mon, 5 Aug 2013 14:56:36 EST New to SP New to spark people today :) I am refocused on taking care of myself- finding time to exercise and eating better are my biggest goals. Long term goal to reduce my risk for diabetes which runs very high in my family. Hoping the app will help keep me on track. Sun, 4 Aug 2013 20:53:25 EST iPhone (not app) and 'add a link' feature I know this team is supposed to be about the app, so forgive me. I didn't know where else to put this. <BR> <BR> Often, I want to add a link to something in posts. When I click the 'add a link' button, a new browser tab (I use Chrome) with the field into which we are supposed to put the link opens. However, when I then click the 'add a link' button, nothing happens. I end up pasting the link into the body of my entry and telling folks to copy/paste it into a browser window. <BR> <BR> Doe... Sat, 13 Jul 2013 16:35:17 EST Do app update suggestions go here? Some updates I'd like to see: <BR> -Being able to enter a decimal in the food servings <BR> -Tracking mileage in the workout/fitness section <BR> -Creating "Food Groupings" in the app <BR> Other than that I really love the app. Thanks. Fri, 12 Jul 2013 18:31:23 EST I get an error message when I cklick on Home icon, After loading all of my information regarding food intake, fitness etc. and I click on the Home icon, I receive an error message and it requests that I try again. <BR> <BR> This doesn't seem to ever happen on my Iphone SparkPeople app. <BR> <BR> What am I doing that might be causing this or what is the problem? Fri, 21 Jun 2013 18:37:42 EST Hello to all I am here to finally recommit to getting mysel to a healthy weight and fitness level Fri, 24 May 2013 12:31:59 EST APP Makers: Please put Fitness "groupings" in app I can only see my Cardio Favorites in the app, and not any Strength Favorites. <BR> <BR> Also, I really wish there was a way to view your favorite fitness groups in the app. There is only "Search", "Favorites" (again, no strength), and "Demos". <BR> <BR> Thanks!! <BR> T <BR> <BR> <BR> p.s. If this already exists, and I am somehow missing it, please let me know!

Sat, 8 Sep 2012 03:23:17 EST Ability to add one of my recipes I made a food and eat it over a few days. <BR> It is frustrating that I can't put the recipe in my iphone. <BR> I have to enter it as a grouping (and then change all the ingredient amounts to match how much I ate). <BR> Or if I enter it in my laptop, I can then put it in my iphone as a favorite, but I want to just use my iphone vs having to go enter one thing on my laptop and hoping I remember it when I am at my laptop. Tue, 4 Sep 2012 13:27:37 EST Please add ability to track sleep I was so happy when this app became available on the iphone without needing wifi. <BR> I use it a lot. <BR> I can track a my nuturtion, my fitness, and my water. <BR> But I can't track my sleep. <BR> While it would be nice to all the other items, sleep is a critical one. <BR> It would make it so much easier to do this on my iphone as soon as I wake up rather than having to boot up a computer to do it.

Have you had many problems? <BR> I've read a lot of reviews and they start out fine but as the app advances the reviews get lower. <BR> I got a new iphone yesterday and would like to know if adding this app is worth it? <BR> I know it's free but if it's glitchy there's no point.

As of yesterday, the app does not display properly all and I am unable to add anything (food, fitness, water, etc). Has anyone had this problem recently? <BR> <BR> Thanks!

Hello all....I am very excited to be a member of this team! Looking forward to learning and losing with you all! Mon, 6 Aug 2012 07:43:43 EST Please add more info on the food tracker. I am diabetic. I need to know more than just calories when I am out and need to log my food. Like, the website, I would like to see the calories, carbs, fat, and protein for each food and the total for each meal. Forcing the app to run in landscape mode to get the info to fit would be acceptable to me for this or add the data to the screen when the device is put into a landscape position.

I kinda let things go in school this spring, but now I'm back. The app really helps me focus on my goal because I use my Garmin to calculate calories & then add them to the app. If I input my time, & have the app calculate my calories, it seems less accurate, but it is OK when I forget my Garmin. Today I ran the mile in 12:30. I'm 66, so I guess that's not so bad. When I was in high school I ran the mile in 6 minutes (or l... Tue, 5 Jun 2012 15:56:09 EST Entering a new food HI I was trying to add a food for my daily tracker. In the portion size, it says 1.0 and I cannot change it to what I want it to read. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!! Sat, 19 May 2012 17:54:58 EST Blackberry? I use the app on my iPad. It has always worked great. I also used the tracker app on my blackberry bold 9000, but I had to upgrade to the Bold 9900. Now the blackberry app world says the tracker isn't available for that device. Any word on an update soon?

I would like to track all my goals in spark app. Thank you! Wed, 9 May 2012 23:57:48 EST Update on the way... I wanted to give everyone an update on the Tracker app status. The day we realized there was an issue, we implemented a fix and resubmitted the app to Apple for approval. Unfortunately, there is no way to expedite the process. The update was submitted on Monday, April 30. We are still waiting for them to review and approve. <BR> I'll post an update when it is finally in the App Store. Hopefully soon. <BR> <BR> Thanks, <BR> Tom Tue, 8 May 2012 09:30:39 EST No Sparkpeople response to iPhone app problems? Does a moderator from Sparkpeople read these posts? I'm surprised that I haven't seen anything from Sparkpeople responding to what appears to me to be terrible trouble with the iPhone app since the upgrade. Maybe they have and I just haven't seen it? I would like to see a fix available in the app store asap! This is really frustrating!

I had been using a different app before that for years to track diet and excersize but it wasnt as user friendly as this one. It's a great tool to help keep all my daily numbers straight.

I came to this SparkTeam page specifically to request a barcode scanner like MyFitnessPal, and now I see that this request has already been made many times before. My question is, has anyone ever received a reply from SparkPeople that they're working on this feature or have at least considered it? I prefer Spark's overall holistic approach to weight loss, but am contemplating abandoning Spark's tracker altogether in favor of MyFitnessPal, which is so much easier to use and a real time saver. ...

Wed, 22 Feb 2012 13:09:44 EST Fat Percentage Tracking I think that this iPhone app would be PERFECT if it just had one more feature: tracking for body fat percentage.

For example: I SEARCHed for "cream cheese". The submenu pops up labeled "Popular searches" and lists "Cream Cheese" and "cream cheese, fat free".

Hello all.....when I first started using this App I could get my daily log-in points from the phone (great as I tend to forget to log in on my computer some days, and would end up not getting points for that day, even if I read and got email points from on-the-road). It has been a while since I could do so, and it is not always convenient or feasible to get log-in points via a circuitous route of: open a SP mailer, get points from email, and click on another link to take me to the points wh...

Mon, 17 Oct 2011 10:11:35 EST Unable to add fitness minutes on iPad I can open the fitness tab just fine, select the activity, but when I press on the box to add the minutes, the keyboard does not appear. It works fine in the nutrition tracking window. Tue, 4 Oct 2011 15:35:27 EST Does not sync automatically So I just loaded the latest version 9/30 on my iphone. <BR> I entered in some food on the iphone. <BR> I wanted to enter a recipe and the iphone doesn't do this so I thought I will go to the web page. <BR> No food entries (though it has been an hour and I am now in wifi). <BR> <BR> How do I get it to sync? <BR> <BR> FYI, I have not used this in the past as it only worked when on wifi, thanks for updating it so it can be used via cellular.

Way to go SparkTeam! <BR> <BR> What I would love to see in a future version: <BR> - Basal Metabolic Rate calculations <BR> - Anthropometric values <BR> - Ability to combine individual items added to my day as a 'meal', so that I can add just that meal from my favorites, versus each individual item <BR> - Ability to view reports of my daily intake of all vitamins and minerals against the recommended daily intakes Mon, 26 Sep 2011 21:43:24 EST Loving the SparkPeople app! I've tried different programs where you had to track calories and other nutritional info and it never lasted long because it was such a pain. Not now! I actually enjoy tracking my food and fitness and seeing how well I stayed on goal or where I need to improve. It's so easy and it's fun! Tue, 20 Sep 2011 01:44:03 EST Hi.. My name is... Hi Everyone! ... My name is Kim. Been here before - needed a new start. I am hoping this time will be the time that my spark is re-lighted. :) I live in Toronto Canada with my husband. Don't have any kids but lots of stuffed animals. :) I am addicted to horror movies, facebook, hello kitty, black&white photography, reading, listening to music (all kinds), and apparently collecting stuffed animals. :) <BR> <BR> I am a binge-eater, late night snacker, emotional eater, addicted to food... Sun, 11 Sep 2011 22:42:31 EST On my way to a better me... I am a 35 year old single mother of 16 & 11 year old boys. I work in retail so I have a very variable schedule of 10 hour days. So, my struggle healthwise is finding the right balance of time to fix healthy meals for my kids and I (I refuse to live on microwave meals or fast food), of energy to get active beyond my time on the sales floor, of rest to be able to function properly, and of some kind of social life and friends as my mom is continually telling me that I am turning into too much of... Sat, 10 Sep 2011 23:55:18 EST App opens then closes A couple days ago I attempted to open the SparkPeople iPhone app. As always the front page displayed then grayed out. Next, the SparkPeople logo is superimposed over the gray background (like always). Then the app immediately closes. <BR> <BR> I deleted and re-installed the app with no changes. Ideas as to the problem? Fri, 9 Sep 2011 14:22:30 EST The "Remaining" numbers are not correct I have the 2.5 version of the app, and it is running on an iPhone 3GS with the 4.3.1 OS. <BR> <BR> In the food tab, at the bottom, the app lists your target range, actuals, and the amount remaining as a second range which is based on the difference of your actuals and the target range for that column. I just noticed that the "remaining" numbers are wrong or just say 0 instead of a range. This area is also clickable and will display pie charts of the data when clicked. These charts also appe... Fri, 9 Sep 2011 09:25:03 EST Edit an entered food that was not listed? I have entered the wrong calories when I entered a food not listed. How do I change this, or delete the item, so I can re-enter it? Wed, 7 Sep 2011 10:52:07 EST How to....? I am confused as to how to get newly entered exercises tracked. On my iPad app. They are listed under Tracked....not as a choice for today. Also, how do I know how many calories were burned in a given set of arm curls? I have entered the ones and the amount of sets I Want to do, but how do I go about choosing it for today? Help please! <BR> <BR> Sq Tue, 6 Sep 2011 15:22:59 EST Blackberry features I miss I just transitioned to the iPhone 6 weeks ago.

I learned speed writing (not shorthand) in my 20's and had incorporated some of them. For example typing just the letter 'v' became the word 'have'. The letter 'r' is - yep you guessed it - 'are'. Those are just a couple obvious differences. <BR> <BR> Can anybody figure out what 'TnsFmSn' me... Mon, 29 Aug 2011 19:25:38 EST Not So SparkyPeople New.... Hi Sparkies... My name is Kim. I've been on SP since January 2010... but closed my page so many times (lost count) ... I have re-opened this one in an attempt to refind my spark that I lost. Hopefully this time will be the one that lasts longer than a week. (lol!) :) <BR> <BR> Just wanted to say hi! :) Mon, 29 Aug 2011 14:02:01 EST Offline Access with iPhone I just returned to Sparkpeople after using myfitnesspal for the last year. I like the ranges that Sparkpeople provides - for me, I seem to be able to manage my points in a range better than hitting a single target. However, I need offline access since I work in a building where my signal strength is pretty low, so I usually have 3G issues during the day (no wi-fi available at work either because of secure network). Any advance knowledge of offline access being provided as a new feature in the... Sat, 27 Aug 2011 08:33:53 EST Hi I'm new... Hello everyone, <BR> I have had the app on my phone for a few months and just this week came back and started to use it. I've used it once already just to try it out and it was awesome!! I'll need to have it handy when I'm out so I don't forget to add anything. <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Happy Monday! Mon, 22 Aug 2011 16:58:52 EST Ipad app away from WiFi? Hi All, <BR> <BR> I'm getting ready to go camping for 3 days only, but am so nervous about not having my Sp APP!.....I know I can manually write a journal, but it is so much easier on the app for me, as I'm visually impaired and the Ipad has Zoom,'s would be nice if the Ipad iphone apps had a feature that would allow you to record what you had, and then, when you got in WiFi range it just filled in all the nutrition..........(don't want much do I? lol <BR> <BR> does an... Wed, 17 Aug 2011 13:27:50 EST iPad app...requests One of the features from the iPhone app I'd LOVE to see on the iPad: <BR> <BR> - Quick-add option for food entry. You can now add a food and go directly back to the Food Search screen to perform another search, instead of going to the Food Log, then having to click "Add" to get back to the Food Search screen. <BR> <BR> How about adding the Login spinner for some extra fun? <BR> Any chance of adding articles to read in the iPad app? Tue, 16 Aug 2011 22:05:14 EST IPAD app crashes when entering exercise data When I try to open the exercise function, it blinks the function for a second and then quits the application. There is no warning, it just dies. Every other function works fine. I am on the latest version. I love it otherwise. Thu, 11 Aug 2011 15:50:43 EST First day to a new beginning Just signed up on Sparkpeople tonight. Looking forward to exploring this site and helping others to do the same. Downloaded the iPhone app to help with recordkeeping and such. <BR> <BR> Sue Sun, 7 Aug 2011 00:08:24 EST Pictures I'm sure it's the phone but I don't have access to a computer very easily and I wish I could load pics from my phone to my spark page. I mean with all the technology I still can't download pics from my phone? Ugh. Maybe one day. Thu, 28 Jul 2011 12:15:17 EST Barcode Scanning Hi there. I am currently tracking on myfitnesspal because they have a hande barcode scanner. You just scan the barcode and you pick the number of servings. All the NI downloads into your diary. <BR> If Sparkpeople had this i would get rid of myfitnesspal. Wed, 27 Jul 2011 16:56:46 EST Spark Teens I just signed my daughter up for Spark Teens, I cannot access her account from my SP app, is there a separate app or am I just doing something wrong. Tue, 26 Jul 2011 17:38:44 EST Request: food/wate r/fitness all default to today Please make it so all areas of the app default to today. This happens with food already, sort of (when you're in the app as much as I am, it continuously runs in the background and doesn't "re-open", so it doesn't reset the day like it should), but it doesn't do that with fitness or with water consumption. This would be immensely helpful in making sure things get entered onto the right day! <BR> <BR> Thanks, <BR> Erin Mon, 25 Jul 2011 14:20:10 EST Request: lock food entries on past days Please add a feature where if you're making changes to a previous day's food, water, or exercise, the app prompts you to confirm you want to make changes to a past day's entry. It would be best if that prompt were something users could turn on and off, in case some people tend to track the day after they eat. But that would keep previous days' entries from being changed by accident. <BR> <BR> Thanks! <BR> Erin Mon, 25 Jul 2011 14:14:45 EST Please add: macronutrient breakdown by meal Please add the capability to look at the macronutrient breakdown (fat/carbs/protein) by meal into the app, either like it shows up in the website or by tapping the meal header to see the info. As someone who is following a low glycemic diet (40-30-30), I need to be able to see this by meal, not just for the whole day. <BR> <BR> Thanks! <BR> Erin Mon, 25 Jul 2011 13:56:33 EST download grey out I went to itunes to download but it was greyedout, is anyone else having problems getting the app? Sun, 24 Jul 2011 09:19:35 EST Decimal point use for serving size I can!t seem to get my iPad app to accept a decimal point (ie, .5). When I have used half a serving size. The drop down menu only offers the option of SERVING. How can I record a half serving! Fri, 22 Jul 2011 21:35:05 EST Gps running app This might be a stretch but I would love to see spark people use their mapping feature on the website on their app. There are several apps that will track where you run and keep up with distance, time, and calories burned. Run keeper is the one I use. Imapmyrun is one I used to use. I hate to use those apps then have to turn around and manually enter my calories burned from my HRM. It's just a thought but it would be really cool. <BR> <BR> Also, as with other posts, the barcode scanner woul... Tue, 19 Jul 2011 15:33:33 EST New Version: iPad Tracker v1.1 To all iPad owners out there... <BR> <BR> An update to our iPad Tracker app is now available for download in the App Store.

We really appreciate it! <BR> <BR> Thanks, <BR> Tom <BR> <BR> Tue, 19 Jul 2011 10:30:11 EST New Version: iPhone Tracker v2.5.3 Just wanted to give a heads up to those who may not have checked the App Store in a while, the newest version of our iPhone Tracker app is now available. Some of the main enhancements include: <BR> <BR> - Updated Today screen that allows day toggling and navigation to quickly jump right into Food and Fitness searches. <BR> - Quick-add option for food entry. You can now add a food and go directly back to the Food Search screen to perform another search, instead of going to the Food Log, then...

Yeah, yeah old dogs can learn new tricks but this little thing is a bugger! <BR> <BR> I have been with SparkPeople for a while under different names and different groups but this time I choose to be more public about my weight loss so I have set this one up with a real name and I will put real pictures instead of the glossy ones that are cute that I would rather hide behind I am tired of being quite about the issue...

Fri, 15 Jul 2011 17:30:15 EST Willing to work for barcode app database After seeing all the requesting posts for a barcode scanning app and a lot of people willing to pay for it I figure a small or non-existent database is probably what is holding back this feature. I'm wondering how many people are willing to go to their local grocery store and scan, photograph, and list nutritional values to help start a database for Spark? <BR> I'm not saying this as something official but I can not possibly see what else is holding back this feature for the Spark. If people... Thu, 14 Jul 2011 17:43:55 EST New Kid.... <em>213</em> Hi Everyone! My name is Kimberley. I have an iPhone & totally LOVE the SP app for it.

This is the most I have ever weighed and enough is enough, I need help. <BR> I want to lose 57 pounds. <BR> I want my skinny clothes to fit again. <BR> I want to climb a flight of stairs and not be winded. <BR> I want to feel good about my appearance. <BR> <em... Mon, 11 Jul 2011 13:33:44 EST Hello! I have started using Spark again! I am trying to change my lifestyle by changing the way I eat and trying to get into the habit of exercising daily! I am 25, a mother of 3 girls, married and work full my life is hectic and I don't really make exercising as important as it needs to be! Since January I lost 15 lbs, gained 5 back and still need about 30 to be where I want to be. My heaviest was @ 160lbs (January), today I weighed in @ 148 and I want to be @ 120-125 lbs. I could really ... Thu, 7 Jul 2011 18:04:45 EST Hello My name is Renee. I joined this site at the urging of a close friend who has been on this site and getting support for a while. I have been struggling with my weight for years... yo yo-ing from diet plan to diet plan and never sticking with anything long enough to make enough of a difference. Two years ago my world fell apart... my best friend and husband of 20 years went into respiratory arrest, had a heart attack and a stroke and ended up in a coma. Thankfully he survived, but he now h... Wed, 6 Jul 2011 16:24:06 EST Cant update calorie goals in iPad v.1 app Although I can select Kcal and change the range, the save button does not work. I am required to leave the app and do it using safari, which is not an ideal workaround. Sun, 3 Jul 2011 06:36:20 EST Requests for additional features in App I would love it if I could add what time I ate for each of the meals (and my for my customized snack categories too). I also would love it if there were a way to chart my hunger levels throughout the day (particularly before and after meals) so I can see how well the food I'm selecting keeps me satisfied. <BR> <BR> Thanks! Wed, 29 Jun 2011 13:58:10 EST "Extra Meals" not available in app I love that on the main Nutrition Tracking page of the website, you can add/edit extra meals to customize to your own needs. However, those extra meals (in my case, Morning Snack, Afternoon Snack, and Evening Snack) don't show up as options to select when I'm tracking my food using the iPhone App. Is there any way to get this fixed? It would also be great if I could add the time I ate to each meal, so I can track how well I'm spacing out my food intake. Wed, 29 Jun 2011 13:55:04 EST V 2.5.1 problems I was excited to see a new release to fix issues with 2.5, but I am still unable to track food with the app. Any suggestions? Is this a known issue? Mon, 27 Jun 2011 22:34:54 EST New at this app Just starting today, having problem entering food that I've eaten. It shows up in report section, but on the food section, I get the message that I have not added any food for today. Is this normal? Wed, 22 Jun 2011 14:18:12 EST accountability app ... gotta get it this is so cool u can put in workouts appts what ever its a free app and if u don't stick to it they post it on facebook and tell everyone u failed to stick to it lol Mon, 20 Jun 2011 21:54:54 EST Problems since the update? Do i need to reload? Ive been having issues with the Iphone app since I loaded the last update. It won't automatically bring you to today's date. I have to manully set it every day before I start adding stuff. Every time I load a food and try to adjust the amout of the food I ate I get an error message saying it didnt work, but it seems to load the food anyway. And the weight tracker/ goal tracker thing doesnt seem to work and I keep getting error messages. Is this just me? Should I just re-load the app? Or... Sat, 18 Jun 2011 11:59:28 EST Stretching Check Box I would like to see a box where I can check that I stretched and that would be entered into the fitness tracker online. Fri, 17 Jun 2011 05:34:31 EST New Version 2.5 Many Bugs, Food Groupings Unusable Thanks for giving us the decimal point back for entering a new food. But I'm having a lot of problems with the food part of the app. Every time I click to add a food grouping to my tracker, I get the message "There was a problem retrieving data for this food. Please make sure you are connected or select a different item." I click the "OK" button and the timer just keeps spinning. In order to get it to stop, I click cancel and the food grouping hasn't been added. Thu, 16 Jun 2011 01:50:52 EST problem with app for ipod touch I have been using the SparkPeople app on my iPod Touch for over a year, and been through several updates. Although all of the earlier versions have worked very well for me, the most recent update (to version 2.5) won't let me track food (the app closes whenever I tap "Track Food" on the main screen or when I tap "Food" on the dock (all of the other functions, e.g., track fitness and track weight, work just fine). Uninstalling and re-instally the app does not solve the problem. Is there is a...

Just joined spark on my ipad. Love this site and am now able to keep track of my health day by day by just logging a few numbers on my ipad. The more reports the better for me, i love analysing calories in and out. 5kg (10 lb) to lose. <BR> Fri, 3 Jun 2011 17:26:23 EST Weight Training not displaying I actually love this app but I am letting sparkpeople create my weight training routines and they are not appearing in my iphone application as they appear on the website. They used to appear but now they dont. I have to manually add all of the weight training listed on my fitness page online. I use the phone app as a guide for what exercises to do at the gym but it makes it really hard when they dont show up in the app. When did this change? Mon, 23 May 2011 19:13:09 EST app update will the app ever have the notes section added? i use this online feature often to track the time i eat. Tue, 17 May 2011 12:34:31 EST MEAL PLAN SUBSTITUTION Please, this is the best thing about the website. I needs too be on the app. Sun, 15 May 2011 09:48:02 EST A few small enhancements -- a setting option for "Food" to open with "Search" vs. "Favorites" <BR> -- an alphabet list (like in iPhone's Contacts) on the Favorites list to jump up/down the list <BR> -- access to Teams/Forums from the app without logging in agai <BR> <BR> --ability to group foods <BR> <BR> Thanks :-) Wed, 11 May 2011 07:35:05 EST When I enter a food, that's days detail disappears When I enter a food on my iPad v4.3.3, the food I've alread entered for that day disappears from the right panel. If I exit the app and reload it, it displays again, but entering a food always makes it disappear. Sun, 8 May 2011 14:15:52 EST Hello My name is Krystal. I am new here and have a long road ahead of myself. I would like to meet other women who do as well. Thank you! Fri, 29 Apr 2011 11:58:14 EST Blog from iPhone app? I mostly access SP from the app, would be great if I could pop up a quick blog post from it, too ... any chance of that being added? Thanks so much for all you do! Sun, 24 Apr 2011 00:41:11 EST Anyone in san diego who wants to partner up im looking for someone who uses the wii ea active and would like someone to workout with i have a hard time making myself work out because im lazy and always feel tired. Is anyone interested? Sat, 23 Apr 2011 03:09:04 EST Can the iphone app remember my login and password? I would use the iphone app much more if I could get it to remember my password. Is this possible? Fri, 22 Apr 2011 11:38:51 EST Spark people needs an iPhone cached version !!! Dear sparkpeople, <BR> <BR> The program is great but it is so slow ona phone connection and soso on a wifi connection. I woul strongly recommend and ask that you develop a local cached version that has all of our entries and foods and menus bit that works WITHOUT a connection. It would seriously improve performance and usability of your application. Fri, 15 Apr 2011 09:38:09 EST iPad app wont load all of a sudden I've deleted it and reinstalled several times but it still won't load. I just get the "Loading" message and spinning circle but nothing happens. I'd appreciate any suggestions to get this working again. I posted this in the technical help message borax too, but I thought I'd check to find out if any other iPad app users had this problem. Thu, 14 Apr 2011 10:24:39 EST Sparkteens? Can Sparkteens use the app? I installed it on my son's iPhone and it won't let him log in with his username and password. Is that because he's on the teen site? Sat, 9 Apr 2011 20:18:14 EST Takes To Favorites List After Adding New Food When you add a new food, it takes you to your favorites list when you hit save rather than letting you enter it to your tracker immediately. Previously, I think I might have reported it as not saving the new food. But that is incorrect, the new food is there. But you need to search your favorites, select it and then enter it. <BR> <BR> I think it needs to be changed back to the way it used to be and the way it is on the site. When you are entering a new food in the app, it is because y... Sun, 3 Apr 2011 02:42:19 EST Hi everyone! Hi!! I actually started using the app a couple years ago when it first came out, then stopped because it took so long to load every page that it wasn't practical for loading in every food that I was eating. Now that I'm using sparkpeople again though, I'm giving it another chance and hoping the upgrades have helped! The three things that would make this perfect are more foods from the grocery stores in the database (Calorie Count by MyFitnessPal is the app I switched to because it has a HUG... Sat, 2 Apr 2011 13:19:56 EST Finally! Hi all. It's taken a while to post this message. The information on this website is amazing! <BR> I gained a lot of weight due to a very stressful 3 years. Very excited to be able to focus on finding myself again. Never been this big ever! Nothing fits. Amazing that your mood is directly tied to weight and appearance, but it is. <BR> <BR> Love this site and looking forward to losing my 50 pounds by the fall. <BR> Thu, 31 Mar 2011 19:52:26 EST Thinking about getting the app but....... from the little bit I get from these posts, it doesn't sound like it works very well. Is that a fair assessment? Is there somewhere other than these posts to read about how to use it? It is very difficult to gain anything from these posts unless one already knows something about the app. They usually address a specific problem that I don't understand since I haven't gotten the app yet. I'm just trying to find out if I should get the app; if it will work for me. Does it sync with the onl... Wed, 30 Mar 2011 11:04:08 EST Food tracking issues with syncing I have added meal categories to my tracker: morning snack, afternoon snack, evening snack. This shows in both my online tracker here as well as the application tracker so all is good, you would think. When I add foods to the added categories on my iphone tracker though, it doesn't always translate to my online tracker. For example, yesterday. My evening snack came through just fine, listed under evening snack online. But the morning and afternoon selections got listed as "Foods from customize... Wed, 30 Mar 2011 06:06:24 EST iPhone app crashes when trying to add fitness Is there a fix for this? Tue, 29 Mar 2011 16:48:59 EST App crashes when adding a new food The whole Spark People app crashes occasionally when I press the "Add a food not Listed" button at the bottom of the screen. I have to try it a couple of times before the app behaves and lets me enter the information. I would dearly love to have a bar code scanner in this app. It would make entering new foods a lot easier. Where do I go to report this bug and does anyone know what kind of improvements will be added to the app's next update? <BR> <em>38</em> <em>41</em> Sun, 27 Mar 2011 15:20:25 EST Anyone having issues with the page not refreshing? I'm using the ipad app. I can enter food no problem but when I go back to the day page the total for the day has updated but no individual meals are listed. Exiting out of the app and returning does not always work. Thanks! Sat, 26 Mar 2011 11:25:11 EST
