OK… If I understand you, you like the mobile app… I agree. It is a great way to stay accountable through the day.
NEXT… You talk about losing access to … and this is where I get confused -- do you lose access to the "browser-based" version of SparkPeople? Is that what you mean?
The browser-based version of SparkPeople is needed to access functions like posting in the forums.
I know what you mean, that some sites are set up so that you can place a shortcut on your tablet's home screen. Here's a shout out to others: I haven't found that feature for SP.
Have any of you found that the browser version of SparkPeople dot com prompts tablet users to place a shortcut on the home page?

Love the mobile app and the bar code. Why doesn't it create a shortcut on my home screen after I down load it. I either have to leave it running in the background or I loose it and have to reinstall every time. Help!!

I would use the app on my iPad but I downloaded it for free on my android phone. I used it daily until I got a new phone . I guess if I go back to using the site, I'll have to use it through the web since I refuse to pay for an app that was free on android and iPad.

The iPad app is great for tracking. I lost 20 pounds quite easily using the app, but when I stopped tracking, you guessed it, put it all back on. I am tracking again and the results are as expected, slow and steady weight loss. I am someone who will always have to track, and I'm okay with that - like balancing my cheque book.

I love the app because it stores my favourites, yes I'm Canadian, so it is easy to find the foods I eat on a regular basis. It also lets me search items I might eat on a rare occasion. This is all good, but know the American and Canadian food items are not always the same. Check the labels to selected the correct ones.

I have also downloaded the app to my iPhone, for a small fee, as it has the added feature of being able to scan a barcode. I use both apps every day, as scanning the milk carton is quicker than adding the item manually. The reload is almost instant on both devices.

The SparkPeople apps work for me. I have added, and then deleted other apps, but these are the ones I use. It helps me keep within the balanced ranges for calories, carbs, proteins and fats, AND if you go to the site itself it itemizes the nutrition of those foods, vitamins, minerals etc. Even with eating healthy I can see where the shortfalls are and what the repercussions are of being deficient in specific areas. Multi-vitamin anyone?

I'm balancing my life with SparkPeople apps! Two thumbs up! emoticon

I haven't touched my laptop since the day I got my iPad, it's fantastic had it about 2 years now, have tried lots of health & fitness apps but Sparkpeople by far the best, although I don't like having to keep switching between app and website in order to track distance and my 5 fruit and veggies each day, why can't they all be in the same place

I also LOVE my iPad. I've used multiple ones for work over the past year + and finally broke down & got my own personal one. As others have said, I use it much more to track especially my food due to the larger buttons & screen which allows me to manually add foods not already in my 'favs.' Also like it alot for the Spark Recipes app so I can prepare new foods in my kitchen without the extra paper piles that I'm still battling to get control over & out of my house! emoticon

LOVE my iPad had it for about 18 months and carry it everywhere. I also got my apps free; did not know they were charging for them now. I have both the Kindle and Nook app on mine and read books on it. I do prefer the Kindle app to the Nook app and use it the most.
I am returning to Spark after a hiatus of several months. Look forward to connecting with Spark friends again.

I find it really good as I am deaf and do all my corresponding by texting .. The buttons are easier to use and I can also read all my books on it wherever I am ..

Yes! I just got one the end of December. The new mini ipad. Iove it.
I first got a Kindle Fire HD, because it was a $100 cheaper, but I took
it back to Radio Shack. I'm so used to the iphone, that it just seemed
easier to stick with what I know.

I did not know they were charging for the apps now. I got both of mine when they were free. The ipad is easier, as someone said, because it is bigger and easier to see and use the buttons.

I had the diet tracker and it was free. My phone lost this when I got new iPhone and now 3.99. I go through Safari instead. Think it stinks that I had app for free and now they took it away.

Just joined the group. Had the app on my iPhone for awhile but put the app on my iPad. I was quite bummed that there was a charge for the iPad when there wasn't one for the iPhone. :(

I can use faster and with less errors than my iPhone due to larger font and buttons.
