I would like to be able to record my steps and miles in the fitness section. I keep track of both steps and miles on Excel spreadsheet on my computer but I forget to open the spreadsheet daily to record them sometimes for more than a week and my pedometer only saves the individual daily step counts for a week. If I had that feature in the app, I would most likely record the steps more frequently because I could do even when I am away from home without access to that particular spreadsheet. So I would love to be able to record both steps and miles in the fitness section of the app just like I can when I am on the site.

Does the iPad app have the ability to add custom recipes? If not that would be a handy tool that I would use a lot.

I would love to have My Streaks included in the iphone app!!

I think this would a great addition and could be in the "Other" tab.

In fitness tracking I would like to be able to add my mileage like I can on the computer. I have been tracking my mileage religiously since you added the capability.

I wish it would open with my favorites too. I also wish that if you search for something in favorites and it's not there, that when you click the search button, it doesn't blank out what you typed previously. It should only blank out if you select to enter something in your tracker.

I never select to save the entries that list it like Bread, Naure's Own. I select the one that says something (or I enter it) with the brand first and serving size in paranthesis if it is something other than standard measurements like an ounce or cup. If it gives me a conversion such as 2 slices of bread equals 1 ounce, I enter the conversion in paranthesus too. Fo example, I enter Nature's Own Whole Wheat Bread (2 slices = 42 grams) or (2 slices = 1 serving). I think it makes it easier for myself and other's (after I share) to use later.

Thanks for the tip on searching Favorites. Now if only I could set it so that Favorites came up first instead of the search.

Run2Ride, as to the Favorites, when you click to add a food then click on "Favorites". From there you can type in something like "apple" and the app will return all favorites with "apple" in the name. The Favorite list is in alphabetical order but not in a friendly format. For instance, if you like Nature's Own Bread, it would show in your favorites as "Bread, Nature's Own". It would be great to be able to access the forums or sparkteams from the app. I use my IPhone more than my computer so it takes a few days to catchup. Hope this is what you were looking for.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

-- a setting option for "Food" to open with "Search" vs. "Favorites"
-- an alphabet list (like in iPhone's Contacts) on the Favorites list to jump up/down the list
-- access to Teams/Forums from the app without logging in agai

--ability to group foods

Thanks :-)
