    All I ever see you post is this.

    And it's always relevant.

    If they eventually cripple the free version more and more, what other halfway competent free tools/apps/sites would people consider jumping to?

    I see sparkpeople has already been mentioned - any others? I've never used anything other than MFP.
    I'd probably go back to Fat Secret. I'd miss the MFP forums but at least I'd be able to organize my recipe box and enter more than one serving size (some people do love their cups)
    Out of curiosity, what made you leave FatSecret? Couldn't have been half-bad if you're even considering it as a return option...
    I couldn't get the app on my old iPod touch because I couldn't upgrade to the OS I needed. I have my G3 now so it wouldn't be an issue.

    Gotcha.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply! :smiley:

    Funny that people are willing to spend extra $$ on clothes, makeup, home accessories - but when it comes to your health NO WAYYY!

    It all comes down to a question of value. What the app is offering in terms of "bang for you buck" for a $50 price tag is pretty much...nil. It is not worth $50. Ad free? Please. The database is questionable. Dashboard? Don't need it. "Exclusive content?" Pshaw. Not necessary. I don't care about Food Analysis either.

    And for the record I personally do NOT spend extra $$ on clothes - I wear my clothes till they are unwearable (literally...I don't even like to put them in Salvation Army! I feel GUILTY!), I buy at Salvation Army, other thrift stores, or off the clearance rack. I can't remember the last time I paid regular price for ANY article of clothing except socks and underwear because they rarely if ever go on sale.

    Much of my make up is 2-5 years old. I finally threw out some stuff that I've had for 20 years. I rarely if ever wear make up.

    I get rid of more home accessories than I bring in. Honest.

    My two most recent investments: a new upgraded food scale and a new bathroom scale. Two years ago I spent $575 dollars on a new bicycle, and I pay a monthly membership fee to the gym to go workout. I do invest quite a bit, as a matter of fact, into my health. :tongue:

    ETA: Clothes come from a thrift store in a rich part of the city. An entire outfit will cost me less than $30, where all original clothes were well over $200 when new.

    Home accessories? The most expensive thing in my home is my computer I built myself. It was $500 new. I recently upgraded the main component when the IT guy at work upgraded his computer. I got motherboard, CPU, and RAM for $50.

    Next most expensive thing is my mattress, which was $350, and I'm getting an older memory foam mattress pad for free from my parents, who just bought new mattresses.

    I get my Netflix subscription (which, funny enough, is the same cost as MFP. So much more value for dollar) from my brother, so that's free as well.

    My phone? HTC One M7 I got less than a year old for $100. It's a $700 phone.

    Phone plan? $35/month.

    Internet? $40/month.

    Compare all that to MFP for $8/month. The cost of MFP is a joke.

    I don't see how MFP premium is going to improve my health ….

    I mean I got this far with just regular old MFP ….

    My makeup budget has blown up recently. No way I can afford the app and this small mountain of mascara...

    NP. :wink:

    I never even bothered trying to log sleep, driving, and all that. I don't believe you can customize your macros and calorie goal, which sucks but is something I can deal with if it comes to that.

    You guys realize that site is fake, right? They have the copyrighted images wrong and there are no underarmor logos anywhere.

    Ah. No macro/calorie customisation... bummer!

    The app also has a coaching program for $49/month. You can pay them to babysit and praise you.

    ummm you do realize that when you log into your MFP account, click "help", and go to the help desk that there is a section on MFP premium, right?

    so not sure where you are getting it is fake from….

    What, https://myfitnesspal.desk.com/? Yeah, as ndj1979 said, click Help at the top next to your usename and it goes there.

    It's MFP's helpsite. It's provided by a third party vendor (desk.com). Probably hasn't been updated yet to reflect the corporate changes.

    It's real, I'm afraid...

    Interesting. The paid version has a lot more perks. I like where you can have different calories limits for different days, ad free, and other things. I'm the type who would try it for a month and see how it is.

    Surprised there hasn't been more hoo-hah around the boards about this!

    http://myfitnesspal.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/1940211


    Sorry non-US people, you have to wait. But we may as well stop asking for upgrades to the free version - most of what people ask for is being rolled out in the premium one.

    Absolutely no interest in this. In fact none of the features interest me at all.

    And I thought the free "insight" the app provides was bad enough.

    Not surprised. I knew when Under Armor purchased the site that it wouldn't be long before they thought up ways to charge.

    Exactly my thought as I started to read about this. It's a commercial venture now.

    All the issues I've been having with the app lately that didn't exist before UA... no way am I paying. If it were a well behaved app and service, I'd consider. Maybe.
