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!
