  • I Totally recommend this app. It is the most complete app in the marketplace, and I really emphatisise in the "complete" adjetive. It has almost all. I have erased 4 apps to keep just this one.
    Runkeeper (not so complete, of course, but someday will), timers, countdowns, diets, weight calculator and history. And another cooking app.
    It's really worthy paying for it, and I did month or so ago, and I dont regret. It's being super useful for me to keep tracking of recipes made by myself, with their own calory tracker, and historial of how many times I eat what. It has so many features that I dont use, but that are there to use them If you need it.
    Also It allows you to create various profiles, like for your kids or partner.
    I really hope they keep upgrading and updating the features of this app (not just because I paid for it lol) because it could reach the top 10 of usability.
  • I'm so glad to see this on WPCentral. Another HUGE fan of the app. Possibly one of the best designed apps I've seen on any mobile platform. Seriously. It's baffling how much functionality is available in this thing. Meanwhile, still easy to use. Fast, fluid, and all the Live Tiles you can create make your phone come to life. It's a great showcase app for Windows Phone in general, and definitely worth checking out.
  • I'm also another huge fan. Has so many features and is always being updated. Like rafyelzz this has replaced about 4 other apps. Well worth looking at if you want to track just about anything in your life. But obviously best for diet and exercise.
  • I love this app and have enjoyed seeing how it has improved over time. My only gripe is that after three months worth of food accumulated in the database, the app has become quite sluggish. I'm about ready to uninstall and reinstall for a clean slate, though it does mean re-entering nutritional information for the various foods I eat. I understand the reason for the sluggish behavior is OS related, but I do hope further improvements in this area will occur. Still, definitely an app to buy.
  • Did you try to backup the data and reinstall the app?
    It'd be a serious pain in the ass if I loose all the info I entered.
  • Have you updated to the latest? I've been using Livescape since April and have about 300 foods entered. The app was starting to become slow in earlier versions but it was mostly fixed when 2.0 came out. Plus the popular foods filter helped a great deal. Grouping my foods in categories has also helped.
  • Timely spotlight! I've been looking for an app for just this purpose (began working out & trying to eat better about a month ago) and saw too many one-trick ponies and vague reviews to blindly choose. Just bought this after trying it out and seeing how well it works.
  • I feel that this app is certainly one of the most well done and super functional apps in the entire market place! Certainly worth whatever the cost $$$!!a job well done and a huge kudos to the devs!!!!
