  • Where is support? May 8, 2020

    By Siouxzee44
    I looked for a way to ask support in the app but couldn’t find a place to do so. I’ve been a member for quite a while now. It’s by far the best carb tracking app that I’ve found and I’ve tried 5 or 6 of them. I keep coming back here. I pay for premium even. However I’m really frustrated. I’m having a hard time entering recipes. After I get all the info typed in there is many times no “save” option. I have to click the upper right corner to get out of the screen and so lose everything I’m trying to save. I try to refresh the screen, I poke around at the top of the screen (where it’s just white space), I clear out the food search history - nothing. It’s hard enough for me to be faithful in tracking and with things like this happening quite often I’d rather just quit. This needs to be fixed. I’ve invested enough time and money with this app that I don’t want to throw in the towel, but this is annoying!! The other annoyance is if I make a typo I can’t correct it or add a word in the middle of a line without completely starting over. The cursor automatically takes me to the end of the sentence. E.g if I want “ground cinnamon” and I forget to type ground or if I type grnd I can’t just jump in to correct it, I have to erase the entire line and start over. SO annoying. Each extra keystroke takes time that I don’t want to devote to tracking. I need it to be easy! I love the scan feature. I wish all ingredients could be scanned. Can you help? Thanks, SMP

    This is a very powerful app and makes tracking what you eat along with all the macros, very easy. You can plan meals, find recipes and even capture your exercise and water consumption. If you are interested in finally capturing exactly how many calories, carbs, grams of fat, protein, etc., you are putting into yourself every day, this is the one!

  • Live it But One Big Fix Needed PLEASE 🙏🏼 Jul 21, 2019

    By nitamalcua
    I’ve really loved using this app to track my macro nutrients over the summer. It allows one to do a lot more without paying for premium than any other app I’ve seen on the market, and I’m very grateful for that. The app is essentially free to use, as the “premium” features just seem to be recipes and some super in depth nutrient tracking that I don’t personally need too much. However, my only gripe with the app that would seem like an easy fix would be the fact that your macro nutrient allowance does not balance in conjunction with your activity and subsequent loss of calories. For example, if I am allowed 100 grams of protein per day along with my other nutrients, and I eat all 100 grams at some point in the day, and end up at a calorie count of 2000, then burn 6-700 calories or more during a hard workout, shouldn’t there be an option showing that I have more slotted macronutrients. The number of calories that you can consume goes up because the calories you burned with your activity affects the calorie count on the app, but doesn’t affect your allowed macro nutrients. It’s so weird to me because it’s like the app is telling you that you need to eat more calories, but says you can’t have any more protein carbs or fats for the day. So what are you supposed to eat? That’s all. Thanks. :)

    First and foremost, thank you for such a great app. It literally has everything I need to track my Keto diet and so much more. I am beyond happy with it. The only thing I would add is a few meal plans that include meal prepped weeks where the meals for the week are relatively the same (though have good variety).

  • Great tool for a Keto Diet! Oct 9, 2019

    By BIRD1E-1111
    I love this because you can track all of your macros quickly and easily. I love the ability to scan UPC codes to enter a new product. I love how you can enter recipes by entering a url. There are tons of recipes and you can edit recipes to suit your needs. There are meal plans included in the premium version but none of them suit my needs. They should be labeled differently than meal plan 1 etc so we do not have to look through each one. You can customize a meal plan which is great but it did not work for me. I entered “no seafood “ and it gave me only 1 choice for lunch which was an Asian salmon salad. Things I would change: on the water tracking, you can change your water goal for the day, but you cannot change the 8oz increments. I would like to be able to change it to 20oz or just be able to type in the amounts. You can copy foods from day to day but it is time consuming. I would like it if there was the option to check off items with a check box and add them all at once to another day. Also it would be nice to check off items on a previous day and have it saved as a meal. You can save items as a meal but you have to enter items individually, then save it as a meal. I think this app is invaluable and I recommend it to all of my Keto and Low Carb friends!

  • Not registering intake? Aug 20, 2019

    By Bonito apps
    I just entered my “breakfast“ on another popular app, and it told me that 1 teaspoon of braggs apple cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons of Metamucil sugar-free registers as 40 caliries and 10g carbs. I enter the same two items on this app, and it registers 0 calories and 0 carbs of any kind, total or net or anything. What am I supposed to make of this? Does this app realize I ate at least something, and that this something does have at least calories, or not?? Also very difficult to navigate this app, as just trying to select how many teaspoons of something results in having to fudge with selecting the actual number of teaspoons and then the teaspoon/tablespoon selection itself, but there’s always this weird looking half bent number on the wheels above where are you need to line up those selections just so, so it appears that after you make all your selections, there is always something above and below it, and I don’t think there should be anything above it, zero. It’s very confusing. Additionally, it took me 15 minutes to figure out what to do after I got those numbers lined up… Eventually I wound up tapping where there is a checkmark in the green bar and that seem to make the selections “take“ And register in the daily food consumption list. It really should say something like enter or add or something, because it took me so long to figure this out. I’m not a fan of this interface.

  • Upgraded version of app has become unusable Jan 16, 2019

    By Ontological Unicorn
    Have used the app for years, spending hours over time adding custom foods, nutritional info, etc. Upgraded to the new app, and when prompted for a login, the screen said existing data would be transferred over to new app. It wasn’t. Original requests for help finally got a reply of “just start using the new version and we’ll see what we can do. New requests for help with still-not transferred data have not been answered. I started trying to re-add foods, and really appreciate the barcode scan feature, which should save heaps of time entering info. Except some of it doesn’t match at all what’s listed on the nutrition info panel on the package. Multiple efforts to update info let me edit values, but then doesn’t save them, so only records in the daily log the wrong info/values. Totally frustrating waste of time. New version is not at all intuitive as previous version was. Am giving up on this app, as I can no longer use it to accurately capture macro nutrient counts or edit incorrect info or regain any of the info or progress data I had previously entered over 4+ years. It’s a great idea and served me very well for a few years, but new version needs some improvement for accuracy, usability, and support.

  • No free recipes..but it looks nice. Jan 10, 2019

    By Nebs1124
    They say they offer free recipes but they don't, they only give recipes for the premium. And if they DO have free recipes then there is no way to actually tell which recipes are for premium and which are for free unless you tap on them. Also, when you click on the “search for a recipe” button, they give you a bunch of premium recipes on the front page so you’ll be scrolling for hours tapping and trying to find one for free which you probably wont be able to do. They have a search option, but no filters to go through either for the picky eats who are on a budget and looking for a quick recipe that a two year old would eat. With that said, I do like the set up when deciding your goals, and how they have an ease in feature. I also like how they keep track of your macros. And, in the exercise portion, they have SO many options that fit you! Like the “carrying a child over 15 lbs is upstairs.” And the “walking with a child” they don't just have a basic range of exercises they actually go in depth. With that said, I wish they would let us include how many flights we went up instead of for how many minutes we did it.

  • Dishonest pricing Sep 19, 2019

    By snobabe
    I had been using carb manager for a few months. I love it for tracking net carbs and finding out new recipes from other users. It would remind me daily about premium for $40 a year. I thought about it but figured I didn’t need it since I only was using it primarily for tracking net carbs. That was until I got a Fitbit. Which to sync it I needed to buy into the premium. I sucked it up to buy it. Which it a equivalent of 4 hours of my work day. Part of syncing you need to go into the site. Imagine my delight to find out just a matter of 10-30 second after purchasing it on the app and switching to online I was offered it for $30. Wait I just paid $40 for it.... so why offer the discount AFTER I paid for it? I figured I would reach out to costumer service. Joke! They won’t offer a refund of $10 due to inconvenience. They said they don’t offer the discount even if it was shown right after it was paid for.🙄. I am a manager in costumer service and let me tell you, that is not how you treat a costumer. I will be calling my bank to tell them to make sure the $40 gets cancelled. Along with forwarding this review to apple and Fitbit.

    It’s easy to fall in love with this app at first. It’s easier to give them a five star rating with the automatic pop up “rate me” only minutes after downloading and believing it to be “the app that gets me away from MyFitnessPal and the old calorie counting”. And how cool is it that it makes meal plans for you? Yup that was me. However, this app is highly inaccurate. I was fooled by the 4.5 star rating, but it only makes sense. The way it’s set up makes it challenging to accurately rate it. And try to find the button to rate them after the fact. Good luck! I finally found it, obviously (marked “show us love” under settings). I went on google and found exactly what I thought. A lot of people complain of the accuracy. Not only are the recipes extremely inaccurate , so are the items scanned. I did a test and out of 15 items scanned, only two were completely accurate. I did not have this problem with fitness pal. Such a bummer. This app could really be the new best thing, but you can’t lose trust in your customers.

    I enjoy this app and have the paid subscription. There are plus and minuses. The food database is large, which is good, but it is sometimes flooded with slightly different entries making it hard to choose. Dieting can be confusing, I would like to see more info tabs on things. I did NOT drink enough water in the past. While this app does help you track it, you have to log all the way in just to tap on an empty glass, a widget on your home page would be cool. Keep up the good work guys!!

  • Great! Just one wish, to save shared recipes. Feb 13, 2020

    By SashaP82
    I’ve just converted to a Keto lifestyle, I tried a few apps and CarbManager has the best features while using the free version of the app. Thank You!!! I truly believe I can eat whatever my heart desires twisted to Keto, in that frame of mind I am always creating new recipes. In the last 4 days of having the app, I have created and added 4 of them. I love that it totals up all the nutritional values and when I add it to my daily food, let’s say as my dinner, those adjust to the serving size. I cook for a very large household and since a few of us are trying to stick to Keto friendly meals it’s nice to be able to share the recipes, however, they can’t save them so that they can benefit from the same nutritional information in their daily meal records. That means each app user has to create the recipe in their app, that’s quite frustrating. I’m hoping there is a way to update this, it maybe I am just saving wrong. I always give permission to publish when I create a new recipe, the little box is checked. I’m guessing it just takes a while to verify each one of those before they are published, which is understandable, but if we all had my invented dish for dinner then we would all like to have the benefit of just adding it once shared from the app, which is another feature I love! Thanks again for the great work!!!

  • Great App But Needs Tweaks Sep 25, 2018

    By quietlyobvious
    I found this app last week and really enjoy using it. It easily helps me keep track of my macros and lets me see what I’m eating and where I can improve. That being said, there are a couple issues that reduce the user-friendliness of this app. First, you cannot enter your own recipe and save it. This is a great feature of the Weight Watchers app that I was hoping this one had. I can import a recipe from online, but I haven’t seen where I can create my own recipe and save it. Instead, I have to individually list each item (in let’s say homemade salad dressing), and there is no option to copy multiple ingredients from one day to the next. So even though I drink the same Keto coffee or eat leftovers for lunch from dinner the night before, I have to painstakingly copy each ingredient one by one. If I could just simply copy each one, that would be great, but instead the app flips you to the current day after selecting the meal time to place the copied ingredient. Right now I’m trying to copy certain ingredients from Sunday’s dinner to Monday’s lunch, and each time I select an ingredient to copy, I get reverted back to today, then have to back arrow twice to Sunday, scroll down, and copy the next item. It’s time consuming and tedious and really the only thing I would say should be fixed to make the app more user-friendly and efficient.

  • Best NET CARB Nutrition App Jan 16, 2018

    By Mark Wagner
    (Update) Still the best app for tracking nutrition especially for calculating net carbs. However, the app is a little buggy at times which is usually easily remedied by closing the app and reopening; however, it’s inconvenient. That said, this app is still my favorite and is very well designed and targeted towards net carb calculation and tracking. The application interface and design is still the best out there. (Original post) This Carb Manager app is clearly the best nutrition management app I have used in years. I have been using a couple other (MyFitnessPal and Lose It) apps for several years (7+). Neither of those apps completely covered my needs like Carb Manager does to determine target nutrition goals, net carbohydrates, reliable food database, general metrics and statistics at a glance without having to perform manual calculations in my head or on paper. It has been frustrating to say the least and those inferior apps have always left me wanting something better. Well, this Carb Manager app is fantastic. Could not be happier. And the bonus is this app has a much better user interface and is so much more intuitive to use, and the annual or monthly premium membership is comparable if not cheaper than both of those “other” apps - double bonus! It also works beautifully on both the iPad and the iPhone.

    App works well, but is dependent on knowing exact amounts. Most of the time, you can scan items & they will add automatically. Just make sure you're over the bar code before you hit the scan button. There is ZERO time to line it up after. Definitely takes practice.

The PDF file is an easy read. Cons: it's NOT USER FRIENDLY. 😭 I hope they improve this! The categories on many subjects are too broken down. Ex: I have to jump through loops to create a shopping list. There's no accessible guide or instructions on how to set up your account. You have to really dig to find it.

  • Has potential but not quite there yet Aug 28, 2020

    By Elaina-Jaide
    This app seems old and clunky compared to myfitnesspal and lose it. The interface feels really old. Also I’m visually impaired and there is no dark mode to make things easier to see. That needs to be implemented for free as not everyone can see tiny writing in lightly colored font. I hate that developers never test their stuff to see if it’s easily accessible for those with less than perfect vision. As a developer you should always err on the side of making the background dark and the font larger to accommodate for everyone! I shouldn’t have to ask to be able to see the app like everyone else. One thing I like is that Carb Manager has most foods when I scan a barcode. I use more than one app as I like to compare them all. Please take some time to make this app look more modern and include more features like LOSEIT and Myfitnesspal. Carb manager has virtually no competition as no other apps really focus on the low carb/keto lifestyle and you would get more premium subscribers if you added more features and accessibility to the app. Not sure if premium is worth it for me because I can barely see some of the writing on here 😞

  • Search Functionality Is Subpar Jul 3, 2019

    By dmerc86
    The net carb functionality, nutritional breakdowns, and calorie counting functions of this app are just what you’d expect. As advertised. But finding the items to place into your meals is annoyingly difficult. Every time you attempt to add an entry, it requires internet. Then after finding the item you wish to add through their giant database, you have to search for it likes it’s the first time every time. You can’t search recently used for frequently used items. You can’t sort using recent. When you enter the search function before typing, it brings up recent items. But you have to scroll through them all to find the one item you used weeks ago. Why isn’t there better search functionality? And after adding it once, why can’t we add that item again without the internet? If MyFitnessPall has a Net Carbs function, I would have kept using it instead of this. Carb Manager has a lot of improvements to make to improve my ratings. Securely a mediocre app.

  • Really good, needs a few tweaks Feb 2, 2019

    By wh1-t_type
    Overall the app is really good and has most foods already in it. For the ones it doesn’t, it is really easy to add! However, when adding food to a previous date the app will change the date back to current. Even with no other change of screen. Add food to breakfast two days ago, still in the add screen and try to add something to lunch the same day, but all of a sudden you are back on todays date. Have to exit out, change the date, and search again. Also, I understand why it is an internet supported app (have to have internet to work), but they really need to add an offline version where you can still add foods but not search their database. I’m active duty USN and when the ship is out to sea, I cannot use the app. I CAN log in and use it on the computer, however, the internet is not always available on a warship. If they can fix those two issues this would be an easy 5 star app!

    By Bonito apps
    I just entered my “breakfast“ on another popular app, and it told me that 1 teaspoon of braggs apple cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons of Metamucil sugar-free registers as 40 caliries and 10g carbs. I enter the same two items on this app, and it registers 0 calories and 0 carbs of any kind, total or net or anything. What am I supposed to make of this? Does this app realize I ate at least something, and that this something does have at least calories, or not?? Also very difficult to navigate this app, as just trying to select how many teaspoons of something results in having to fudge with selecting the actual number of teaspoons and then the teaspoon/tablespoon selection itself, but there’s always this weird looking half bent number on the wheels above where are you need to line up those selections just so, so it appears that after you make all your selections, there is always something above and below it, and I don’t think there should be anything above it, zero. It’s very confusing. Additionally, it took me 15 minutes to figure out what to do after I got those numbers lined up… Eventually I wound up tapping where there is a checkmark in the green bar and that seem to make the selections “take“ And register in the daily food consumption list. It really should say something like enter or add or something, because it took me so long to figure this out. I’m not a fan of this interface.

  • Upgraded version of app has become unusable Jan 16, 2019

    By Ontological Unicorn
    Have used the app for years, spending hours over time adding custom foods, nutritional info, etc. Upgraded to the new app, and when prompted for a login, the screen said existing data would be transferred over to new app. It wasn’t. Original requests for help finally got a reply of “just start using the new version and we’ll see what we can do. New requests for help with still-not transferred data have not been answered. I started trying to re-add foods, and really appreciate the barcode scan feature, which should save heaps of time entering info. Except some of it doesn’t match at all what’s listed on the nutrition info panel on the package. Multiple efforts to update info let me edit values, but then doesn’t save them, so only records in the daily log the wrong info/values. Totally frustrating waste of time. New version is not at all intuitive as previous version was. Am giving up on this app, as I can no longer use it to accurately capture macro nutrient counts or edit incorrect info or regain any of the info or progress data I had previously entered over 4+ years. It’s a great idea and served me very well for a few years, but new version needs some improvement for accuracy, usability, and support.

  • Kick off after months of data inputting Jun 10, 2019

    By Shellsue
    I really thought this was going to work, so I trusted it with my data & my recipes. I started an account, but chose not to go with the premium account. I was somehow logged out & was getting a message that my e-mail did not exist in their system. I sent a message for help & after a day was given a chance to get back into my account. Later that same day, the same thing happened, only this time my account was blank (like a brand new account with no info). I did delete that account, but now they are telling me that both accounts deleted. Other people have told me that they have been logged out of their account for no reason, but eventually got back in. You can take a chance on it, but you may lose all your progress. I read the reviews on the premium package & noticed that people have problems on it also. I worked for months on this app to lose weight & now it’s ALL gone. My advise is to fine a better app. Read all the reviews before you trust it with your life’s mission of weight loss.

  • Frustrated Oct 31, 2020

    By adrienne979
    I purchased the premium app because I was committed to making this work. My second day in using this app and I cannot select the same items as I had selected the day before. It appears I am selecting the same item but then something completely different shows up in my log. I’ve tried every which way to reset my phone and the app thinking there must just be some sort of glitch but nothing seems to work. these are some of the core foods I’m eating right now so at this point I can’t track anything and I’ve wasted $40 on an app that does not work. I also don’t like that when I enter in an item for example at a restaurant, about six different options appear for the exact same food and they all have different macros. I had hoped that for an app that’s this expensive the creator of the app will have collected that data and entered the information so that there aren’t just a bunch of random users contributing to the list of items.

  • Wrong Calculations - Do not recommend for ketogenic dieters Jan 9, 2019

    By haze0127
    I downloaded this app to help my boyfriend track his macros while he loses weight on Keto. The app told him he needed to consume 3007 calories a day. I knew this was wrong because that’s more than recommend amount for a normal diet, and you’re trying to lose weight you’re going to have to take some type of calorie deficit. I’ve also done Keto before so I knew just by the calories it was telling him to consume too much. Long story short looked online for some help and came across a program that lets you calculate what your daily macros would be while on keto, and it said he should be taking in 1779 calories a day. HUGE difference from 3007. Anyway, I’m sure this is app is good for someone who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle and into tracking macros. But for those who are looking to be on a keto diet I DO NOT recommend it because consuming too much protein, fat, and calories can give you the WORST keto flu ever.
