Guys, this app blows MFP out of the water, I love it and recommend to all my friends.... BUT, please fix the recipe feature, it is agonizing to use. I make almost all my food from scratch, so the database is great, but I spend much more time building recipes.
There is no "are you sure you want to leave this page" feature in the create a recipe feature. Nearly every time I create a recipe I end up doing it twice because if I get a notification on my phone, accidentally push the 'import recipe' button instead of 'add ingredient', or even rotate the phone orientation I lose all my progress.
Please please please, do 1 of 2 things, or both: 1) Save recipes as drafts similar to email, so that if I accidentally navigate away from the page, I come back and it still exists, 2) Add a "are you sure you want to quit this recipe" question if you try to navigate away.
I'm telling you, I love this app, but I nearly just launched my tablet across the room after the third failed attempt at inputting an incredibly long recipe!
A great bonus feature would be photo on the recipe notes page, it would be way easier than me typing an entire recipe out to simply snap a picture on the notes page.
I know I am not the only one who uses this amazing app as my family cookbook, and will do so for years to come, lets work the bugs out of this area of the app please.
(issues on both android tablet and android phone apps, if you need that info)
I'd love to see a few more icons to represent food categories. It would be helpful when organizing "ingredients" in a "meal." Perhaps an icon for all fluid items, something to represent spices, maybe an icon that differentiates fresh whole produce from other foods.
Bodyfat in charts defaults to kg regardless of how the chart is set up. It has to be changed to % or lbs each time the chart is ran.
Hi, i have a lot of useful targets on Cronometer such as Calories, Macros, Nutrients etc..
I tend to eat above my calorie targets on 2-3 days and then have 1 day where i eat below. But cronometer will show me a fixed daily target.
I don't get a lot of value out of tracking these daily because my schedule and diet is pretty variable. Are there good ways to track these things on a weekly, biweekly or monthly level?
The trends tab is sort of in the right direction, i can see e.g Net Energy over a period, but that doesn't tell me how far above/below I am from a net energy target. Same for other metrics.
I don't know if this is new with the beta, as I've only been on Cronometer a week...but if one is too swift in swiping left, the diary entry is deleted, with no Undo option. It's happened twice so far, and I had to remember my meal so I could re-enter it. I like being able to swipe left to see the option to delete, that I can then select, instead of the item instantly being deleted. Suggestion: when being too zealous swiping left and an entry is quickly deleted, give us an Undo option.
Being a developer myself I know it's nice to have a nice looking UI feature. Unfortunately the 2FA code input dialog during login favors form over function. It should be possible to paste the code instead of typing it manually. Most other platforms like Paypal, Apple allow this as many users copy the code from the authenticator app.
Are there any plans for a backup feature so that all custom recipes can be saved locally? Also, the ability to print recipes in a nice, clean format would be very welcome!
