    I would pay if MFP could somehow autofix the "lose vs loose" problem. ;)

    It's 100% free to accept that typos and misunderstandings about spelling will happen online, especially when you're gathering people from a variety of countries and backgrounds.

    I work with and forum with a lot of ESL people and IME it is native English speakers who make these types of mistakes.

    I notice a lot of UK people say loose weight, which I find quite odd.

    I was more or less just kidding around and would never correct a post, but based on my 20 years of reading finance (and more recently weight loss) boards, the lose/loose error has to be the most common of all.

    Right, I saw your post as tongue-in-cheek :)

    My spelling has gotten worse since I've been foruming. I never used to make here/hear their/there type mistakes.

    Sorry, I took you too seriously!

    I'd pay for a database in which the only whole foods entries were those MFP pulled from the USDA database, didn't have liquid measurements like ml for solid foods, and all the decimal errors were fixed (1 g entries show values for 100 g).

    It would need to be a complete database as well. For example, the MFP-created entry "Egg, whole, raw, fresh" has been missing for a few years. I still have it in my Recent, but need to use a user-created entry in the Recipe Builder.

    A sync that works correctly with Apple Watch... I’m a former Premium member that is now using another paid app for my logging, for this reason. I still like MFP for the forums but the lack of functionality was killer,

    It should all be free - all the time.

    If something's free, we are usually the actual product. Interestingly, upgrading free services generally doesn't seem to roll back any of the value we 'get to' provide in return.

    Pretty much always, with the exception being government and non-profit provided services, and, to some degree, free apps offered to assist you in spending money for a service (say, apps that let you locate a brick-and-mortar store in a given chain and place an in-app order) or to use an online service that you pay for (e.g., Spotify or Netflix on your phone). Any of those probably still use the data gathered for maximizing their revenues, just as a brick-and-mortar store uses general sales info and info linked to reward cards to maximize revenues.

    I love MFP, but use another app to log. I would switch back if the diary entries were accurate and I could track ALL nutrients (important if you’re vegan).

    I wish I could use another app for logging, but I only do it in short bursts and keep coming back here. I like that this one has both a desktop and a smartphone app, that I can easily copy meals from yesterday or use saved meals, and that there are times when the messed up database comes in handy when I'm trying to log some weird foreign brands or local foods. I basically go back and forth using an app, getting tired of some aspect of it, switching to another, and so on.

    It is very common here. Not sure why.
