I agree!! I used to be able to enter quantities using the keypad. Now when entering food I have to scroll through the numbers to get the right one - this gets really frustrating when I'm trying to add a few hundred grams of something!! I also noticed it only goes up to 499. Please change it from scrolling numbers and fractions to a keypad where we can enter values ourselves (with decimal points)!
Thanks :)

I agree, I would really like a decimal point.
I weigh and measure things and it is frustrating to have to take the nearest 1/8 vs put in the accurate number when I am using my iphone.

There is the scroll key to add anything from an 1/8 to 7/8 of a serving if the food is already entered on SP. But I miss the decimal point when adding a new food because some things have 3.5 grams of fat, .5 grams trans fat, etc. Also, I miss it for entering my weight.

I want my decimal point back... I am totally lost without being able to track my food OR my weight through the spark app. :( I want to be able to add a food when I'm out and I can't do that without the decimal. :(

These boards are monitored so maybe they will see how much we want out little dot back.

I also use the decimal point for adding half servings, etc. on the iPhone and iPod Touch and miss the ability to do this when entering Foods.

If I am entering my weight, I guess I would round up. The thing that bugs me the worst is when I am trying to add a new food and you do not have the decimal point available to put say 1/2 cup serving, etc.

So. Do you round up or down?

Yes, we all lost it when we updated to OS4 on the iPhone. There is talk of getting it back but when, we do not know.

I don't know if it is me or what but I seem to have lost the decimal point that we all loved so much when it came to tracking your weight. Anyone else lost this?
