January 8/2013 - Spark People App no more

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

So, a while back I had the SparkPeople app on my phone so I could track my meals and exercises on the go. It was free back then to had bugs, like the bar code scanner didn't work right and what not, but it was SparkPeople so I was still happy with it. When my phone died and I had to get a new one I was no longer focusing on my health as I was dealing with a lot of other things in my life. Both my parents moving and then them both as well as both my in laws, being in the hospital for a bit and then our dog going into organ failure due to undiagnosed diabetes and having to be put down plus trying to find medication for my health that the insurance would pay for....this has been a nightmare....

anyway, both sets of parents are all home and doing better, though dad had another surgery yesterday to deal with some scar tissue from the last surgery, and found that through a mail order pharmacy I can get my meds completely covered so they are free! And though we did lose our Frosty before Thanksgiving, on Black Friday we went to the Humane Society and got our new furbaby, Pookah...I realized I needed to get back on schedule with exercise and eating healthy again.....So I went to start organizing things for returning back to my healthy routine.... I had a new app on my phone called MyFitnessCoach which I like a lot, but I wanted my SparkPeople stuff still so went to search for the app....

The app is still there, simply no longer free. They now are charging $3.99 for it. I was tempted to go ahead and buy it, but then I took a look at the reviews. According to those they still never fixed the bar code scanner that you could simply scan the bar code and the nutritional information would show up. It still was not organized to locate restaurant foods so if I went out to eat I wouldn't be able to figure out what would be best for me to eat there and keep me at my limit.... so why would I pay that money when MyFitnessCoach does all that....AND FOR FREE!!!!!

So if you have a cell phone and want an excellent and FREE app that actually works look for MyFitnessCoach. You can still enter your stuff on here as well if you want to but this way you can take it all with you and aren't loosing weight where you don't want to loose it....from your pocket book.

    Wow, that sucks! I'm glad I already have it downloaded, but it's not cool to know that if it crashed, I'd have to pay to replace it. Bad call :(
