Community, development and added value
I have purchased a Gold membership quickly after discovering Cronometer. I had been using My Fitness Pal for a while but was tempted by the added MFA, the claims for more accurate food databases and the raving review I read everywhere.
But alas, it doesn't seem to be what it claimed.
After the purchase I started using the app to plan my daily menu's and quickly ran into some problems. A lot of food was missing from the database which means that I still have to enter foods manually. The foods that are available, aren't always accurate and the app seems to be lacking some basic features that have been asked for multiple times.
Unfortunately, the community seems to be almost non existent. There are a lot of questions that are unanswered, the amount of posts is quite low and there seem to be no interactions with the developers/company themselves.
I am starting to wonder why the reviews are so raving about Cronometer. Is this just because of the sponsorship or am I missing something? At this rate I will be going back to MFP very quickly. If I still need to check my macro's for foods that I scan, I might as well make use of the bigger database, active community and extended features.
Please convince me that I haven't thrown away a year subscription and that Cronometer is really as good as they claim to be.
