    The hardest thing for me has always been accurately carb counting, especially when going out to eat. The other night I used Carb Manager to count carbs for a pasta dinner and managed to keep a steady Dexcom line with no major spike.

    When you're trying to lose 30 pounds, you are already having to work hard, either exercising, or eating right, or both. You don't need to spend even more time trying to calculate the macros in your food. Look up any food and fit it into your custom nutrition plan.

    When you are on the Keto diet, the last thing you want to do is to spend 1-2 hours every day looking for recipes. With this handy app, you will have no trouble finding recipes that aren't just low carb but tasty.

    Whether you're into the Keto diet or not, finding foods to eat that avoid carbs can be a great way to add 15-20% more protein into your daily diet without adding unnecessary calories. Manage your carbs like a pro with the help of your phone.

    Needs a Quick add button Nov 27, 2021

    By Jill Goodsett
    This app need a serious upgrade . It needs to be a lot more user friendly. In the WW app you can just add a Quick add item. They need to have this for CM. It is WAY to tedious entering in the entire recipe. Let us enter our own macros so we dont have to enter and entire recipe. It is so maddening. I end up saying screw it sometimes. I don’t want to do that. I am trying so hard to make this successful. To note: I have already purchased the premium. Needs to be easier.

    Upgrade is worthless Mar 22, 2021

    By Anne
    I used to like this app, but then the upgrade came, Now every time I tried to add things it freezes up constantly when I finally do get things added it seems to disappear after a few hours. My subscription expires in a month I will be canceling and looking for a new app.

    New app updates are horrible! Feb 5, 2021

    By Michele Maxted
    I agree with all the negative comments written here. I have only been using this app for about 6 weeks. Today they've changed everything and I hate the app now. I used to be able to edit a recipe to suit us now I can't. Everything was so easy, now it's less than what is originally was. I'm going to cancel my subscription.

    2021 Upgrade is Terrible Feb 4, 2021

    By cathie figlewski
    I liked the app because it was easy to use, tracked all my nutrients, adding and editing my favorites and recipes were easy to get to so 2 weeks ago I paid for a 3 month subscription. Then forced upgrade today. What a flipping joke!!! It is terrible trying to navigate just to find foods and recipes. I can't filter the specific foods items under the In-Depth such as saturated fats. No more running reports to compare my progress from week to week. I canceled my subscription.

    This site is so poorly put together that you can't trust any of the values that it gives. The new app is worse than the old one! And when i asked that my money be refunded - first they said i had a three month subscription which was soon to be expired so they refused my request. I sent them another message and said it was a yearly subscription and I really did not like the app and financially with Covid and all i would really appreciate my money back - needless to say they refused.

  • 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

    I just started using it yesterday, and it's bugging out. I am still able to enter my foods and exercises for the day, but nothing else works. Yesterday I was able to see all the features, including what the premium account offers, but now when I click on the other icons, nothing happens. Hoping this can get resolved soon. Follow-up to my review above. Within one hour the app has already been fixed, and now I can see everything. Might even pay for the premium because so far I am really impressed
  • An amazing tool Jan 27, 2021

    By madabouthouse
    I have had a great experience using this app. It’s easy to use, and is on my cell phone — so, I can update or edit my food intake and track my protein, carb, fat, and calorie intake through out the day. It has been easy to find and match the foods that I eat which makes it easy to be accurate and personalized about my exact food intake. It’s also very user friendly vehicle so it allows me to easily see if a particular food that I may be consider for consumption will fit into the limits/goals — that I’ve intentionally chosen for myself since it has a display panel that shows the maximum amount of calories, proteins, carbs, and fats that I’ve decided to consume daily. I am currently using this as a weight loss tool because, I unfortunately had put on 30lbs during the current Covid worldwide pandemic. I’m excited to say that I’ve already lost 7lbs is just 10 days. I have lost this weight without starving myself at all. I can also track my activities, exercising, and water intake too. I can’t wait to continue — and I plan to loose all my covid weight gain. I plan to use this app even after I reach my goal weight — because, my body thrives on a moderate calorie, low carb, high protein diet that incorporates good fats. I love how the program has notations about keto friendly foods. I also hope to eventually use the many great recipes that are linked to this site. Hip hip hooray to the help that this app offers with regard to healthy eating. Thank you!

    I absolutely love this app. I used fitbit for a while and was so disappointed. This app has everything it was missing! I love that I was able to sync with fitbit too, so I can continue to use all my devices ^_^ totally worth getting premium! However, the app is currently glitching, none of the other tabs will open. I have reached out to the support team, and I'm confident after reading all the reviews that my issue with be resolved quickly =)
  • Makes it easy to track and instill habits ! May 19, 2020

    By sschof86
    I recently made the decision to try the keto diet. Many friends swear by it, and I see how people with epilepsy May benefit from it. As someone with epilepsy I decided to give it a go and see all the hype not tracking anything at first and I definitely felt like I needed something to keep me accountable and on track. I tried another app, but they only let you log 5 things in the free version before you must pay. For someone trying it out and trying keto I don’t want to pay especially in the beginning. Luckily I found Carb Manager. I like how as someone new to keto I can see my progress and make decisions from there. I have the free version and there’s tons the app is capable of within that itself, however with the premium feature you unlock more. In the future if I get more into it I might invest in that! I’ve had one or two issues, like when I recorded my weight for another day it updated my previous weight . I left a message in the app and they got back with me, longer than the 6 hours they promised but still ! I’ve had a bit of difficulty inputting my own recipes too, but I’m still figuring out all the app can do, but I’m extremely happy so far with my experience so I’ll give it 5 stars and recommend this to anyone trying the KetoDiet
  • Really liking the revamp Jan 31, 2021

    By Charlie2427
    I looked at carb manager before the Regan and just couldn’t get into it. I really like what they have done, you can tell that they put a lot of thought and hard work into their new and improved app. I love how easy it is to enter foods the barcode scanner has worked crazy fast for me with everything I’ve scanned so far. There’s tons of metrics you can teac track which is a huge plus for me because now I can have it all in one app instead of flipping through 3 like I did before. I can enter my blood glucose & ketone readings and it calculates my GKI. I can keep track of my body measurements to see how I’m progressing over time along with my weight. There’s just so much! It’s great. There are some bugs that still need to be worked out and crashing on the build a meal plan portion. I also wish that you didn’t have to pick a date to start your meal plan or so much food before moving on to the next step. The social aspect is nice, because it’s always enjoyable to run ideas past others on the same journey. Also the fact that they have recipes in app is awesome. Though I wish there was a dedicated spot for favorited recipes and the ability to create a shopping list from the favorites. I mean if we can make a meal plan shopping list why not make that feature available too. All in all this has been the perfect app for me. I hope they keep with these great improvements. Subbed to premium I liked everything so much.
  • 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!
  • 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!!!
  • Really helps you stay on track May 11, 2020

    By vp4tracking
    I really think this is a great tool to help you stay focused and within your goals for the day with your eating. You are able to create your own recipes with nutritional and caloric values as well as just track with hundreds of food items already in app to select from. It also has a reminder if you want to turn that feature on. It will remind you to track your food for each meal. The only drawback I have seen so far, is that I have found a few items that did not have the correct nutritional values. Using theses when you track your items, your calculations for the day could be off and throw you off your balance for the day. So check the items you track. If you find something that is incorrect, you can report it. They “said” they are trying to fix the database. You can also adjust your quantity to match the nutritional/ fat/ fiber you are actually ingesting. So this app needs a little work on that, but the features are great and you can work around the issues. I would recommend this app but monitor the items you use for the correct values. You can add your own and report any corrections needed.

    I am writing this here as a buyer beware. Hopefully someone sees this and can help me. Do not buy the premium upgrade. You cannot cancel it. The support email address comes back undeliverable, the web app does not exist and the app itself you cannot go to settings anymore to cancel the renewal. When you go to Google it tells you you have a subscription but then you cannot cancel from there. Google tells you to go to the app and cancel there

    Paying for this app was pointless. The meals were not easy or simple. They required more work and ingredients that were not something I would normally buy. Also I canceled the membership and was still charged for another year. I contacted the within 10 days and they would not refund me and goggle play would not refund me. I just waisted another $40 on a worthless app.

    I've been using carb manager for years. Has been a great program. When they upgraded it they destroyed it. There are multiple problems but the most problematic is inaccurate micronutrients info. So beware. 12/21 They worked some of the bugs out, however, they have locked me out of my account. Not intentionally but it acts as if I'm a new customer and wants me ro sign in. It then says my email is not a valid email making it impossible to sign in and no way to contact them.

    The PRO version doesn't allow you to sync and track with Samsung watches/gear. Only Google. Not the same. And there is no hourly fasting tracker for those of us who so daily intervals...only IF cycles. Please make these features available. I feel like I paid for the full version for nothing. Very disappointed with my purchase of this.

    What happened to all the meals and recipes I'd saved? And it seems there is no longer the ability to network and share recipes with friends? And, of course, still no option for multiple users, even if they pay separately. Good grief, they seem determined to move backwards with every update. Would pay good money for the original carb manager.

    By vp4tracking
    I really think this is a great tool to help you stay focused and within your goals for the day with your eating. You are able to create your own recipes with nutritional and caloric values as well as just track with hundreds of food items already in app to select from. It also has a reminder if you want to turn that feature on. It will remind you to track your food for each meal. The only drawback I have seen so far, is that I have found a few items that did not have the correct nutritional values. Using theses when you track your items, your calculations for the day could be off and throw you off your balance for the day. So check the items you track. If you find something that is incorrect, you can report it. They “said” they are trying to fix the database. You can also adjust your quantity to match the nutritional/ fat/ fiber you are actually ingesting. So this app needs a little work on that, but the features are great and you can work around the issues. I would recommend this app but monitor the items you use for the correct values. You can add your own and report any corrections needed.

    I am writing this here as a buyer beware. Hopefully someone sees this and can help me. Do not buy the premium upgrade. You cannot cancel it. The support email address comes back undeliverable, the web app does not exist and the app itself you cannot go to settings anymore to cancel the renewal. When you go to Google it tells you you have a subscription but then you cannot cancel from there. Google tells you to go to the app and cancel there

    Great tool to help you follow a Keto diet and lose weight. can adjust macros based on what kind of keto you are following (high protein, dirty keto, balanced keto, etc). can adjust to allow calorie allowance recalculatuon based in exercise and calories burned. I don't recommend adjusting macros based on calories burned though since it shows negative proteins, fat, carbs which is not helpful.
  • 5-stars if you’re ready to upgrade to Premium Nov 7, 2018

    By mpjinnj
    Carb Manager has been a wonderfully useful app for me. The interface is extremely user friendly, it has great visuals that keep it from looking bland (as food tracking often feels for me), and I love the level of customization of goals and amount of pre-built recommendations available. While Carb Manager sounds like it’s designed for Keto diets, it actually works great for more traditional diet plans, as well (ie Zone, Body Building, etc). I use it for Low-Carb, High-Fat that was recommended by my doctor (not as carb restrictive as Keto), and it had that option pre-built, as well. I’m really excited about trying the Premium features, but haven’t taken the plunge yet. The good thing is that it’s more affordable than most premium upgrade options from similar apps. Once I decide on which Apple Watch my wife and I are getting, I’ll upgrade to premium (required for Apple Health syncing) and update then. The fact that premium is required for that is the only reason this app gets 4-stars; otherwise it’d easily be 5-stars. If you’re willing to pay the $40/year, then it’ll be a 5-Star app for sure (assuming you actually use it, which is the crux of most food/calorie tracker apps).
  • Really liking the revamp Jan 31, 2021

    By Charlie2427
    I looked at carb manager before the Regan and just couldn’t get into it. I really like what they have done, you can tell that they put a lot of thought and hard work into their new and improved app. I love how easy it is to enter foods the barcode scanner has worked crazy fast for me with everything I’ve scanned so far. There’s tons of metrics you can teac track which is a huge plus for me because now I can have it all in one app instead of flipping through 3 like I did before. I can enter my blood glucose & ketone readings and it calculates my GKI. I can keep track of my body measurements to see how I’m progressing over time along with my weight. There’s just so much! It’s great. There are some bugs that still need to be worked out and crashing on the build a meal plan portion. I also wish that you didn’t have to pick a date to start your meal plan or so much food before moving on to the next step. The social aspect is nice, because it’s always enjoyable to run ideas past others on the same journey. Also the fact that they have recipes in app is awesome. Though I wish there was a dedicated spot for favorited recipes and the ability to create a shopping list from the favorites. I mean if we can make a meal plan shopping list why not make that feature available too. All in all this has been the perfect app for me. I hope they keep with these great improvements. Subbed to premium I liked everything so much.
  • 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.

    so far I really love this program. I didn't realize how many net carbs I was eating until I stared tracking them! I like that I can adjust labels that come up wrong on the scan. I t was ready to add my custom recipe. 1 less star because it didn't have a spot on the daily page for adding and tracking personal supplements. That would be a great feature! (maybe in the future?)
  • Great App for Carb Counting Dec 9, 2021

    By BeckyLouLou22
    I really enjoy this app. It shows you macros and breaks down what you should be eating in a day. I always thought of carbs vs calories. You can see what you’ve eaten for each meal - carbs, protein, calories and fat. You can’t fail if you follow the guidelines. Things that could be improved are recipes. You can find all kinds of great recipes on this app with nutritional info attached. That’s awesome. What’s not awesome is the fact when you like a recipe it shows up in your food list instead of it’s own little folder. If you like a bunch in one day it’s just messy. It would also be easier logging food if the food you have already scanned shows up in your food folder first vs every single food similar. You want your info to be correct with what you’ve eaten and it takes forever to find your brand , if you find it at all. So much food is prepped ahead and packages get thrown out. My last gripe is about fiber. It’s so important in any diet. I wish the app added in the drop down where you get your fiber from. It lists every other important part of your diet including vitamins and potassium and such but not your fiber. This should be a huge part of daily numbers. All and all though I’m very pleased with the app and I’m glad it was recommended to me
  • 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.
  • Finally! An app that actually works. Mar 27, 2021

    By puppywhispers
    Learning to eat clean is difficult, because boredom of the same foods can be a problem. The recipes help, but they should all be free. The per servings when creating food items is confusing at times. The preset food nutritional information when created by users, are sometimes misleading, there should be a way for the app to verify the carb, fat, protein and calorie intake. I would also caution verifying the amount of calories burned during exercises that are entered by users. I also wish there was a way to convert per servings of a meal more accurate, although this app helped me lose 21 pounds in a month. Note: I stopped all intake of soda, after this app calculated the nutritional value, and showed me the macros for soda. I drank soda for 30 plus years. I would recommend a low carb, low fat, low calorie, high protein shopping list for beginners to print or download for shopping...it can be overwhelming getting started. Also, recommend incorporating shopping list with recipes, makes it easier to get started. Lastly, incorporating nutritional information with the grocery list would also help beginners do their shopping. Getting started was confusing, but out of all the apps, this one has helped me best.

  • Amazing app, needs more food entry options Jul 18, 2021

    By IT has Crystal
    I’ve had this app for years, and it keeps improving. I love how the app provides a prediction for when you will reach your weight goal with the calorie deficit that you set. I also love how you can set your own macro goals or diet goals (like keto, protein, etc). You can also track your sleep, water, and exercise, and choose whether your exercise automatically subtracts calories from your daily calorie goal or not. Also, very easy to use app with a great overall look and cute congrats animations. I think the only downside that I can think of, is that there needs to be more food entry options. When I did Keto, I didn’t have any problem entering in what I ate, but for foods that don’t fit into the keto focus, often you have to just enter ingredients… which is inconvenient and time-consuming. For example, if I were to try to enter a s’mores, I would have to put the three ingredients because there is no s’more entry. Or even something more custom, like a kale salad topped with grilled chicken, tomatoes, and ranch. It would be smart to have a base salad option for this for example, where you could customize it, like you do when you order at a Panera or McDonald’s kiosk. Just an idea :) Otherwise, I love this app.

    Great for starting on low carb diet. I wish the recipe builder was more like MyFitnessPal because you cannot drop multiple items in at once to select. And the Web recipes selector would be really cool if like the Paprika app, share with the app to build recipes. So time consuming if you're taking a recipe thats not in CM's database.

    I really like this, however I have a Samsung smartwatch and that's not one of the health & fitness compatible devices which is very disappointing. So I have to manually add my steps to the log versus an automatic update. I suggest expanding the compatible devices to allow other smartwatch users the opportunity to utilize your app.

    It wants me to eat over 2500 calories a day, when I'm trying to lose weight. There is no way to change it either, and I can't find an option for a timeline. Also, how does an egg have different calorie options, all of which are over 78? Eggs don't gain calories depending on how you cook them.
  • 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 😞
  • Updated version is not as good or intuitive as the last. Feb 14, 2021

    By McKittrick5
    We’ve been keto for 3/4 year. Been tracking the last few months to get back to deep ketosis for medical reasons. I like to know my macro breakdowns per meal (two meals a day) and before I could flip my phone sideways to see how much protein and fat at each meal and which foods had how much (learning so I don’t have to track forever.) with the new and improved app, I can’t do this from my phone and but have to use the computer which is inconvenient. It only shows calories and carbs. It’s also harder to do the recipes. It’s annoying to have to save a recipe you are trying to make, and then go back and find it to see how the macros pan out, then go back and change it and continue the process until it is how you want it. (Some recipes are too low or high in fat or carbs and a few substitutes need to be made.) A continuous tally available while making the recipe would be nice. It works ok for keeping track but definitely has weak spots for anyone who wants to use it on a continuous basis. I wonder if the developers tried using it for a day in their own lives before launching? 🤔
  • What did they do?? May 10, 2021

    By Jinglejoe303
    I’ve been using this app for a year or so. It was always good. Very flexible. I picked it up again recently, and thought they’d broken it, it was sooo different. But very quickly I came to love the changes. It’s intuitive, adds information quickly, has a few cool new features like muli-add, etc., it was improved. Until today. When I got into the app, I noticed some not great changes. First, they seem to have added a huge database of pre-made, pre-packaged foods, that makes choosing food an awkward combination of irrelevant, too slow, and too fast. For those of us who go to the store, buy actual food, take it home and cook it, the app is now harder to use. Try searching, mixed salad, or wild mushrooms, or cooked sweet potato. What should be the top of the list now comes after a lot of “products.” Second, I don’t know how they’re supporting this app, but it feels like a lot of ai, that now gives you a headache to use it. What should be a useful tool makes you long for the days of calorie list reference books. The software engineers for this thing may want to take a beat and lay off the caffeine. 😉
  • Premium recipe? Jan 7, 2021

    By Winter'sWife
    I was previously using MyFitnessPal to track my food but it didn’t show carbs unless I subscribed to premium. So I found this app specifically for keto! How cool! I created an account and started to log my daily food and realize I can’t log my lunch because it’s “premium recipe”... I know EVERY stupid app makes you pay for features that slightly improve use or enjoyment. But making people subscribe simply to WRITE DOWN a food item is ridiculous. I know most that will read this comment will just say “it’s only 8 bucks a month just subscribe.” But honestly EVERY dollar counts to me right now and I can’t. I’m trying to better my life and lose a lot of weight to stay healthy for my husband and I to hopefully have a child soon. I can’t afford to sub. So I guess I’ll just pick some other food item that’s similar even though it’s asinine to even have to. This isn’t FarmVille or some game people spend money on for extra loot chests or whatever. It’s a life management app and I just want to watch my carbs in one place without being harassed to buy yet another monthly subscription to something.
  • Clunky update Feb 20, 2021

    By TasaPNW
    As a Type II diabetic I like using Carb Manager as it’s helped me focus on my carb intake. I liked it so much that I switched from using My Fitness Pal, and even paid for a premium subscription. Now, with this so-called update, I’m about to switch back to MFP, since CM has become so annoying to use. There many things that I don’t like about the update, but I’ll start with the main ones :1) slow and faulty load - every time I launch the app, it grinds away trying to open until I get the message to try again! As soon as I tap that message, it launches almost immediately. This is not an internet or WiFi problem, it’s solely a glitch in the app. 2) you must manually scroll back up to the top of the page, as there’s no function to just tap on the top margin to have it automatically jump to the top. Very annoying and time consuming. 3) having to do a fresh search for items I’ve logged in many times, again, slow, cumbersome and time consuming! That’s just a start. Hope these issues get fixed soon, or I’m gone!
  • Great tool but no IF timer. Apr 19, 2021

    By Omakad
    After reading some reviews between different apps I decided to go with CM but after signing up I was surprised to find out that this app doesn’t include intermittent fasting timer, goals, or historical tracking. It’s even advertised as easy IF tracking but this only includes time stamps of when the food was entered. Many other free apps include this option. It’s a huge omission considering that many keto people also do IF. After doing some more research I see that this function is coming in future updates but it seems it’s been coming for months so I’m not holding my breath. Secondly it would be nice if premium subscription included some kind of the Milne support or support phone number. If you are not doing IF than you don’t have much to loose investing $9 or $3 per month in yourself and your health. If you can pay for Netflix you can pay for this and support these guys. It would be nice if developers could give us some timeline on when this IF timer will actually become available.
  • Great app Dec 3, 2018

    By ana3065
    I found this app a few months back and it’s actually been super useful and I love it. I personally find it quite easy to use and it’s great that it saves and tracks all the food that I put in so I don’t have to keep scanning the same things over and over again that I eat on a daily basis. I will say I do struggle to load this app quite often. I know it’s not my phone because I don’t have this issue with any other app but for whatever reason maybe I can barely ever get it open unless I’m connected to Wi-Fi and even then it sometimes takes forever to load which means I sometimes have to hopefully remember to enter things later on in the day when it decides to open. I’d love to give it 5 stars but when I’m rushing and trying to put things in quite quickly before I leave the house or am out and about it can be annoying and inconvenient and completely defeats its purpose. It definitely needs a few updates and adjustments but I would still highly recommended.
  • Night Shifter Woes Jul 10, 2018

    By Please change back
    Up until today I would’ve given this 5 stars. Now I have to drop down because for a few weeks I was able to start “Tomorrow”’s - or any day- food list. Now it wants me to pay for Premium to do what I’ve already been doing for a month. As a 7 pm- 7 am worker at a hospital this capability has been important in starting and keeping to a healthier lifestyle as sometimes I work 3 shifts in a row, have one day off, and work 3 more shifts. It allowed my sleep deprived self to just look at my meals and pack lunch/dinner accordingly. No longer an option. I feel that allowing me to do the lists and then taking that option away unless I pay for it - and I found no mention of “trialing” the planning- is a little underhanded. Up until this I loved this app and it’s ease of use, easy interpretations, and for the planning! As a night shifter (not everyone has day jobs!) I find yet again, that developers forget not everyone runs on a daytime schedule.

    Needs a Quick add button Nov 27, 2021

    By Jill Goodsett
    This app need a serious upgrade . It needs to be a lot more user friendly. In the WW app you can just add a Quick add item. They need to have this for CM. It is WAY to tedious entering in the entire recipe. Let us enter our own macros so we dont have to enter and entire recipe. It is so maddening. I end up saying screw it sometimes. I don’t want to do that. I am trying so hard to make this successful. To note: I have already purchased the premium. Needs to be easier.

    The PRO version doesn't allow you to sync and track with Samsung watches/gear. Only Google. Not the same. And there is no hourly fasting tracker for those of us who so daily intervals...only IF cycles. Please make these features available. I feel like I paid for the full version for nothing. Very disappointed with my purchase of this.
  • 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.
  • New version is dreadful Mar 12, 2021

    By FL love it
    This app used to be so easy to use, but now...not so much. I wanted to give it some time before writing this review, to give myself a chance to get used to it, just in case I was only resistant to the changes solely because they were new, but not necessarily bad. Nope. They’re bad. I’m forced to re-enter my custom meals as recipes so that the various elements will show, rather than just the macro totals. All of my favorite foods have randomly changed their quantities, so when I enter foods into my log I’m now forced to reestablish the quantities I always use (example: I always use grams as my measurement, but now the app seems to have everything set to 1/4 cup). I’m in this app all day long, and am very dependent on it. I’m stuck trying to make this work because I’m a premium member and don’t want to waste my investment. But if you’re new to food tracking, you might want to look at MyFitnessPal. I chose CarbManager because it seemed less complicated to me, but that is definitely no longer the case.
  • Extremely inaccurate Jan 2, 2019

    By TlPapera
    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.
  • Nice design refresh but... Feb 23, 2021

    By krusher!
    The actual tracking of carbs/macros is now more complicated and less accurate. The old version - ugly as it was - made it super easy to see my total macros consumed, goals, exercise/activity (for smart macros function) and adjusted net values all in one place at the bottom of the daily log. Now you’re making me swipe through multiple charts to find this info. And not only that, the math is wrong! For example, when I add a food entry to a meal, the app will list the net carbs for that serving and let me know that if I add the item I’ll have maybe 2 net carbs left to “spend” that day. But then when I go to the Home Screen, it gives me a different number, often much higher. And by “home screen” I’m talking about the daily log where I now have to scroll through multiple chart views to figure out what my gross and net totals are for calories and macros. What the...?! I think you’ve prioritized form over function with this new update. I’ve lost confidence in this tool now.
  • This app is a mess! Mar 28, 2021

    By incoherentDream
    This app is incredibly frustrating to use unless you are prepared to put in ALL your own nutrition facts. There are so many people putting in nutrition facts for the SAME item and, most often, all of them are wrong. If you dig hard enough you might find one correct out of the dozens posted. Learn to read nutrition facts before sharing your entries! And read serving size! Some of the incorrect facts simply come down to people miss reading, or not reading at all, the serving size. Basically, this app needs a moderator to go thru and clean it up. We don’t need five dozen Hellman’s Mayo listed in the app, most of which are wrong. We just need ONE correct one. Higher some volunteers, if you don’t want to pay for the employees. Ones who know how to read labels. But please do something, because this app is a mess! I won’t even consider signing up for premium membership if you can’t even make the effort to make the app more easily usable with CORRECT nutrition facts in it.
  • 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.
  • Update ruined a great app Mar 8, 2021

    By Backlash6sic6
    I used this app religiously for months to track my macros and calories, until the new update. Now, the ability to copy certain parts of a meal take way longer than than it should because you have to copy them one at a time then go back to whatever date you’re copying from, and repeat, or copy the entire meal then weed out the parts you don’t want to copy. The scanner feature might be the worst part now, for whatever reason it either scans then just does absolutely nothing, or scans and can’t find the item, or scans as the wrong item, even for items I’ve scanned in before the update and came up no problem. I don’t know how they ruined this app so bad with an update to the look of it, but they did, and I’m cancelling my sub and finding a new tracker app. Do yourself a favor and skip this one until they revert back or entirely change it again and fix what they broke.

    Upgrade is worthless Mar 22, 2021

    By Anne
    I used to like this app, but then the upgrade came, Now every time I tried to add things it freezes up constantly when I finally do get things added it seems to disappear after a few hours. My subscription expires in a month I will be canceling and looking for a new app.

    New app updates are horrible! Feb 5, 2021

    By Michele Maxted
    I agree with all the negative comments written here. I have only been using this app for about 6 weeks. Today they've changed everything and I hate the app now. I used to be able to edit a recipe to suit us now I can't. Everything was so easy, now it's less than what is originally was. I'm going to cancel my subscription.

    2021 Upgrade is Terrible Feb 4, 2021

    By cathie figlewski
    I liked the app because it was easy to use, tracked all my nutrients, adding and editing my favorites and recipes were easy to get to so 2 weeks ago I paid for a 3 month subscription. Then forced upgrade today. What a flipping joke!!! It is terrible trying to navigate just to find foods and recipes. I can't filter the specific foods items under the In-Depth such as saturated fats. No more running reports to compare my progress from week to week. I canceled my subscription.

    Worthless and heartless Jan 28, 2021

    By susan williams
    This site is so poorly put together that you can't trust any of the values that it gives. The new app is worse than the old one! And when i asked that my money be refunded - first they said i had a three month subscription which was soon to be expired so they refused my request. I sent them another message and said it was a yearly subscription and I really did not like the app and financially with Covid and all i would really appreciate my money back - needless to say they refused.

    Paying for this app was pointless. The meals were not easy or simple. They required more work and ingredients that were not something I would normally buy. Also I canceled the membership and was still charged for another year. I contacted the within 10 days and they would not refund me and goggle play would not refund me. I just waisted another $40 on a worthless app.

    I've been using carb manager for years. Has been a great program. When they upgraded it they destroyed it. There are multiple problems but the most problematic is inaccurate micronutrients info. So beware. 12/21 They worked some of the bugs out, however, they have locked me out of my account. Not intentionally but it acts as if I'm a new customer and wants me ro sign in. It then says my email is not a valid email making it impossible to sign in and no way to contact them.

    Been using for a week now. Getting more familiar with it each day. However today it wanted me to log back in. I forgot my password. When I try and send my email for the reset it says there is a problem with my request. I paid for this app and now cannot access it. Please respond with a fix or a refund. Thank you

    What happened to all the meals and recipes I'd saved? And it seems there is no longer the ability to network and share recipes with friends? And, of course, still no option for multiple users, even if they pay separately. Good grief, they seem determined to move backwards with every update. Would pay good money for the original carb manager.
  • 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.
