    Check marks are good and asterisks are out?

    On the app, I think, the asterisks are still there on the web version for me. On the app I get ticks now, with the updated but not paid version.

    I have the opposite reaction. The verified food appears to mean that MFP has officially verified it and users cannot change it. I'm not sure I fully understand why they would take away the asterisk though. Seems we could have both!

    I personally think the free version is good enough for my needs. I am not feeling inclined to pay a monthly fee for stuff I don't really need. I ignore any ads anyway. I like my friends here and my group. As long as I can still interact with them and read the forums I am good to go. I am having good success as is and don't think the added features will make that much difference for me. We'll see.

    I wonder if they've fixed the recipe builder on the Premium version? ;-)

    They have a glitch on iOS that tells me to eat less than 1200 calories a day which goes against everything they say, are they taking my money, Hell No.

    I just learned there's an option to disable "bulk import" of ingredients on the Android update, so now you can actually just search and or scan your ingredients as you go.

    Search in "My Recipes and Foods" tab may or may not be back yet. But from what I've been reading, I don't know that a lot of Android users have put in Help desk tickets for this issue. It really should be fixed. It works on the iOS app

    That glitch has been fixed since the last one or two updates, and I don't even have the premium release yet. I suspect you're not running the latest version. I'm on release 5.13

    I'm getting the feeling that most of people willing to pay for the premium service are going to be newbies, since they have quite a bit to prove to the rest of us in terms of quality before we fork over any money!

    Yeah...not paying for upgrades lol

    Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't the MFP users build a majority of the food database? It would be a strange twist of fate, if now, those same users have to pay to access this information.

    Yeah, I suspect this premium service is mainly for newbies. Like a gym membership, the profit is made on the people who don't use their membership and are too lazy to cancel.
    How many people sign up for MFP after turning over a new leaf, eager to embark on their fitness journey, only to never be heard from again after 2 weeks? I bet it is those people that this "subscription" service is really geared towards.
    I think it is actually a thing to learn how businesses can profit off of consumer laziness in business school, isn't it?

    damn. After years of exercising consistently I'm in this category right now because I signed up for a second gym membership that's a half mile from my home for "convenience." I haven't gone once

    Not paying for anything until we have a FAVORITES section on the food diary...is it that hard to add? And why would I pay for an App that is already buggy? My macros are not even the same on my app vs. the site. :D They are cray cray!!

    I'd settle for being able to delete that thing I bought to try and hated and will never eat again, but it's in my Recent Foods list for the next 4 months.

    Delete it from your diary on the days you entered it. It will disappear from your recent list.

    I got out of a gym membership without penalty cuz we moved an hour out of the city, but they certainly did what they could to make canceling a time-consuming pain. I haven't gotten another gym membership since.

    Charter fitness is good with cancelling fees - none actually. Not a great gym but it did the job. Plus its only $10 to start, some have free wifi, some dont.
