Anyone else getting fed up with the MFP app? I have 1300+ consecutive days logged and it's getting increasingly annoying. Of lately I am forced to log in with my email and password every.single.time I open the app. (I had it protected with a pin before- but that doesn't seem to work now.) I resorted to logging in via Facebook- which I hate crossing log-on credentials like that. But now the upgrade to premium adds pop up with It's gotten super annoying.

Anyone else have a tracking app they like??

I use my laptop, not my phone. I have had some off and on issues like site not available, try back later, all times of the day and night. Nothing like what you're having, so frustrating.

I also use my laptop rather than my phone. I occasionally see the "site not available", but it comes back quickly, and overall has worked pretty well for me.

I to was fed up with myfitnesspal. I switched to "lose it!" And liked it so much I did the premium. I love it and even have a cat theme on it. I like the platform better and the way it shows the data.

I tried baritastic and wasn't a fan.

I never liked the MFP app, and have just used the website. As a general rule, I prefer web versions to apps.

I just learned about Chronometer. It does a great job at tracking macro and micro nutrients.

I like Baritastic but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. I also use My Weight for weight tracking; I like the interface and data -- and it does nothing but weight tracking.

I don't have any trouble with the website from my laptop. I rarely use the app on my phone.

I use MFP on an iPhone almost everyday and despite occasional hiccups, it usually works fine. I don't use any pwd or restrictions on it which probably helps. It's not an application where security is a concern for me.

I use MFP everyday on my phone, rarely on my PC. Once in a blue moon it doesn't refresh, otherwise it's been working fine. It does ask me to upgrade to premium, but not constantly to be annoying. I think I have it set up in a way that if I log into the app through my phone it recognizes me and doesn't ask for pw. I've had about 770 days streak so far.
