I also had the app before being charged for it, but something happened to the app in my phone and I had to delete it and try to load again after nearly a year and they wanted me to pay for it this time. I tried to pay for it but can not set up an account with goggle to get it. so I do not have it on my phone any more.

good luck the the team leader, you can do this. I downloaded the app to both my cell and tablet (both androids) before they charged and have to say i love it.

I don't have an iPhone or iPad, or any tablet or smartphone, so all my sparking and fitbitting is done on my work computer or home laptop. :)

Please stop by the Team that talks especially about this app (in my signature). I try and share an app of the day...hopefully a fee one and

There is a forum where you can request improvements on the SP iPhone application

I love the iPhone app! It's only $3.99 and I think it's well worth it. It has helped me get into the habit of tracking my food. It's a lot easier than trying to get onto the computer throughout the day to track food, fitness and water. I always have my phone with me so it's super convenient. I used to log into SP through the phone internet but the app is hassle free.

I recommend it emoticon emoticon

Yes, it does all that on the iPod too. And it has the mic funtion so I don't even have to type( unless I'm eating something it doesn't recognize). Pam

The android (and most likely, the ios) app does allow you to track your water. It also has a working barcode scanner and the ability to spin the wheel. You can also read articles for information (and points). You can easily track food, exercise and your weigh-ins. To me, you get a lot of functionality for the price of a large latte.

I've been alternating between the SP app and MyFitnessPal recently--part of the problem was that I needed a working barccode scanner (I haven't upgraded past the free old app) for travel adds. I prefer the community here, however, and I'm fairly split between which app I want more. It's probably going to come down to which app is less demanding on my ancient!phone (leave the house with 100% charge! Arrive at work two hours later with NOTHING).

SP has the food planner, which I love to use for inspiration for meals, but there's no caloric adjustment--important since I have a rather small setzone and need to make sure I don't backslide into bad (not)eating habits.

And of course, I have my Fitbit.

I could reverse the syncing order--have SP sync to FB instead of MFP--but MFP's sync doesn't list multiple instances of one food as an error...

emoticon It's a mess sometimes. LOL

I have an android and the SP app but I didn't pay anything for it.
Does SP now charge to get an app?!?!
I only use the app to track my food when traveling. I don't find it useful for anything else. It would be especially useful to track my water intake and spin when I'm away but I just miss those days.
But really! you have to pay for the app now?!?

WOW! I really regret that workout

So true, the community-support that SP offers is beyond comparison to any other site!

I use Sparkpeople iphone and ipad apps. I tried MyFitnessPal but I don't find it keeps as much detail as Sparkpeople. Also there is no sense of community there as much as there is in Spark so I am back here.

I downloaded the SP app before they started charging for it. That being said I use it when I am away from a computer mainly for logging food. I use to use the FB app but now that SP syncs with FB I don't use it as much.
Good luck with motivating your team!

I've just purchased the SP app for my android tablet so I don't have a lot of experience with it yet. If I can track food on it and maybe a couple of other things it will be worth it so I can use it on the go. I also have the MyFitnessPal app and still use it sometimes too. But I like SP better overall. Good luck with the team!

I will also put in a thumbs up for the app. I think it's well worth the money they charge. In addItIon to what has already been mentIoned, you can also read dIfferent sparkpeople articles from within the app. emoticon

I got an iPod 5 for christmas and bought the sparkpeople app. It was $3.99 and I love it. I track all my food, and can use the microphone to search for food or scan the bar codes. You can also add fitness, water and spin the wheel. There's also a nice calorie differencial report. You can't get the friend feed or message boards, but if you are tracking food, it is way easier ( in my opinion) than using the computer.For me well worth the small fee. Also have the fitbit app on it and love that as well. Hope this helps, pam

Did you check the information on the page for it

www.sparkpeople.com/mobile-apps.asp

I did some checking with two friends who use it and they find the app only good for like, mentioned logging food and exercise. They also have a FB app which does about the same thing but they keep it to make sure their FB"S are syncing well thrrough the day

I use the app, but it is really only good for tracking food and fitness. It doesn't (yet) allow you to friend feed or do any messaging. I believe it is free...

Hi everyone,

I just inherited a team that has an inactive leader. Not sure quite what I'm getting into, but just curious, how many fitbiter's use the sparkpeople iphone/ipad app?

I've used it off and on. Now that I'm a team leader, I guess I'll be using it daily. Previously, I would alternate between MyFitnessPal.

Any comments?
