I recently discovered the Lifesum app for tracking your food. I have used MyNetDiary in the past and I'm currently using LoseIt! I liked both. I saw Lifesum and thought that I'd give it a try. It's got a nice interface. It's very colorful. It makes me happy to look at it. I am doing a trial of the gold version. I am going to see if I like it the most.
So far I've liked it. With gold, you can sync it with several apps. I have it synced with Fitbit and Endomondo (I track my walks with Endo) I haven't had any problem with scanning my foods. Everything I've tried has been in the food database. I like that I can save meals so that I can add them quickly. Since I have the same thing for breakfast everyday, I can just add it quickly.
I like that it has a notes section so I can add notes about my day. I love that it tells you about the foods you are putting in. It gives ratings so you know how good or bad the food is for you. A is best and E is worst. So far, I've only had one A. ^^; I need to up my game. I don't think it syncs the food info back to Fitbit. This is something that LoseIt! does. I don't want to have to enter my food twice. Of course I'm doing that at the moment because I'm testing Lifesum and I'm still using Loseit!
After I've used it for a week, I'll give a more in depth review. So far, I'm liking it. It has an app for Android, iOS, and you can access it via the web. If you are interested, check out the website:
