Coming soon! Updates to the Android App

You've been asking, and we’ve listened. We’re excited to announce that a new version of our Android app will be available in a matter of days. Get ready for a host of new updates, all of which means a better experience for you!

  • Improved navigation
  • More consistent user interface
  • Cleaner screen structure – Some of our beta testers have even called it "streamlined," "fluid," and "classy," but we'll let you be the judge of that
To gain access to the new version of MyFitnessPal's Android app, we encourage you to upgrade as soon as the release becomes available to you. We will keep you posted once it goes live!

Cheers,
The MyFitnessPal team

Please please please let it be compatible with Gingerbread. My stupid only-a-year-old phone (NEVER buying anything the Verizon rep suggests as "great and brand new" again) is still running on Gingerbread. :(

I hope you make it so you can change meals in the food screen and move things to specific places as a group much more easily. It IS clunky in its current form.

@ DJStinky... I'm running current version on 2.3.4 and iot works fine. I can't imagine new version wouldn't work.

do you plan on updating the website anytime soon? its kinda janky at best, doesn't update well, the navigation bars on the top and side have different names for the same link (ie checkin/weight in) id love to see some better interactive metrics, as well as better fitness tracking for strength & cardio. id love to have one place to go for all my tracking needs instead of using fitocracy, runkeeper, myfitnesspal, and withings.... god forbid i get something like the fuleband or fitbit and need another place to track my fitness.

I do like the new app! Not tried it on the iPad but it's easier to navigate on my phone!

Soooo excited! Love the current app - only issue is not being able to change the Meal # when copying from a previous day, and I'd love to be able to access the Community items!

Ty man! Sometimes the app devs simply forget that we Android users even exist! To be honest, the current UI is unnecessarily confuse, so I hold high hopes for the new version! Keep the good work guys!

That is great news!!! I HOPE the android update will make the mobile app more in line , i.e., look the same as the one on the laptop!!! I have a VERY DIFFICULT time with the phone app, as it looks so different, doesn't want to accept the stuff I'm searching, or trying to comment on, etc, and seems like it is only half the website! I MUCH PREFER THE LAPTOP SITE, AND WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE THE PHONE APP to look like the same site!! HOPING THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!! <3

Cool....now just to make it so we can access the forums from our phones!!

I hope you guys come out with a new update for the Windows phone soon. Not having a news feed and friends really sucks.

WONNDERFUL! I have Ice Cream Sandwich, and this is the only app I have that crashes consistently :( It's a real pain considering that I use it several times a day. Looking forward to the upgrade!

Looking for ways to do body measurements "solo".

Will this new app work on the Kindle Fire?? looking forward to the new updates. Also, You guys should look in to linking up with NikePlus so that the calories you burn using their watch/fuel band are automatically added to the diary when you sync... just a thought!

Love the website and the app, thank you for helping me lose 113 lbs. and counting!!!

I hope the new update has a "close out" button!
Its annoying to have to switch back and forth from app to actual internet just to close out the day.
Thanks for all your hard work :D

I want to be able to use the forums on mobile. I HATE that I can't do that right now.
CaeliGirl11 wrote over 1 year:
Definitely want to be able to access the forums on the mobile...I just don't understand not being able to do that. Doesn't it seem like that's an integral part of this site?

I hope it can scan food bar codes with my asus tablet in this update. It's time consuming to enter food in the database when it doesn't exist
mu5a5hi wrote over 1 year:
I just moved from iOS a week ago... I like MOST things about the Android app better.. but I'd also be willing to fork over a bit of cash in trade for no ads. They are really annoying. Otherwise it works pretty well on my new S4.

It would be cool if it had a 2x1 widget that showed the remaining calories for the day, but that is just a 'wish; feature;
caly_man wrote over 1 year:
thanks for all the hard work.

as far as forum use, launch a browser from phone, open site, done.
Chaotisphere wrote over 1 year:
Please could you eventually consider letting me browse/post-on the forums on my Android through the application? I spend a LOT of time on my phone each day, and would really like to see this feature. Please please please with walnuts and almonds on top? I would even PAY for such access. Just do it, please please. Thank you in advance.

This is amazing news!! Cannot wait until the big launch. Keep up the awesome work MFP. You have changed my life for the better x
Keightisgr8 wrote over 1 year:
THANKS FOR AN UPDATE!!! I wouldn't be half as successful without this website and my app. I just wish we could access the forums. It's physically painful when I see someone on my friends list comment on something that sounds super informative/interesting and I can't read the thread. I'm not complaining that isn't in this release, I'm just hoping you continue the awesome trend of listening to your users. Thank you so much!! <3

Would much prefer if you put the effort into making a BB10 app. Even an android port would be better than nothing at all. And your website is not mobile-friendly; can be done but it isn't fun.
litteratus wrote over 1 year:
Great news for the Android users. I hope this gets ported to BB10 quickly.
Cheeky_0102 wrote over 1 year:
Yea I would like to see the access to the forums on the app, or at least a mobile page that navigates nicely.
CMB1979 wrote over 1 year:
Great! Will I finally be able to input "0.5" instead of just "1,2,3,4,5" now? I need to be able to use decimals in the android app!
vlmay1955 wrote over 1 year:
Improvements are always welcome; I like the Android app the way it is. Why on earth don't you put the same effort into improving your website???!!! I prefer using it when possible and looking at the big screen. Your web "reports" feature sucks compared to the Android reports. Why can't we have the Android reports on the website!!!!!

Robin1117 wrote over 1 year:
This is awesome! Glad to hear!

Please put Window's phone version upgrade on the list too--desperately need newsfeed capabilities!!!
tbodega wrote over 1 year:
Hopefully the new app will have a Tablet UI for Android. It's long overdue.

A barcode scan and calories remaining widget would also be awesome.

I would love to see a delete button added so we can get rid of foods on our list that we no longer want in there.

Hoping with the new app it will crash less and also add more features for us to use. Hope that after you make a comment you dont have to keep scrolling where you left off, that's a pain in the butt. Cannot wait.

so this means you'll also be porting this to the BLACKBERRY 10?!
yprince1 wrote over 1 year:
I like everyone else love MyFitnessPal, but as an earlier posted stated "Please put some of these great ideas and features on the WEBSITE". There are a ton of that use it as our mainstay, only using the android and other versions when we are on the go. Particularly at work, you can't always be seen staring at your phone, but you can enter something really quickly the website and "keep it moving". Please Mike, I have been waiting a long time for search feature within items that only I have entered into my log. I will never ask for anything else. Thanks!

Would love to see an update to the Windows Phone app as well. I realize that Windows Phone users are (still) in the minority, but it's a growing platform. The last update was almost one year ago... Any plans that you can share with us?

You posted this last Thursday and said it would be out in a matter of days. It's getting close to a week now, hope we see this update soon. I'm excited. Quit toying with us and release it already! :)

Can you tell us the version number of this new release? There was a new release yesterday but it appears to be fundamentally the same as the previous release.

Present version NOT functional. I appreciate all that you do to help us in volunteering your time (Mike and Albert) but I found the Android app to be lacking in functional capability on my Tablet. Tried it several time then deleted it. Went back to just using the browser version.

The new App is awesome, has the best navigation yet... I was lucky enough to get in on the beta... will definintely keep using the AP!

I wonder if the delay with the app is related to the unresolved web site issues.
bedazz562 wrote over 1 year:
I am super stoked to hear this. I hope one of the updates is the adding of the serving size "fraction wheel" that is on the iOS version of MFP. That would be much appreciated. I thank you guys for all you do with this site and the mobile app, as it has helped me lose 45 lbs and still counting!!!!

For all platforms - I would love to see notifications of replies (and the ability to tag) from other people's posts. I have to remember to check my friend's posts if I want to see their replies.

I think it'd also be kind of cool to be able to post a photo from an activity, and have it show in the feed next to calories burned or whatever (ie. Someone just did a marathon). Nothing too flashy. Just something to make this site a little more interactive and give that extra bit of motivation.

Please create a native app for Blackberry OS10 (Z10 and Q10). I've sideloaded your current android app, and it works. I believe you can get either a port working or build natively.

TammyS327 wrote over 1 year:
The new app is a little more streamlined but still no access to forums or blogs. The main differences I see are navigational. The community is still out of reach. My current version is 2.7-3331

I just wish that the fitbit would sync without having to go thru your computer. My wife and I have the new LG Intuitions and because they don't have Bluetooth 4.0 we have to sync thru a computer. Kind of a pain sometimes.

Get rid of the swip-changing day feature. It very annoying and frustrating. I'm seriously about to stop using the app just for this. It's very sensitive that when I scroll down or up the list to look at the nutritional menu, UT keeps swiping backwards or forward to the next day. Every freekn time, please get rid of it or change it.
Anonymous wrote about 1 month:
agree with anonymous.. the app changes days every time i try to swipe up or down the mealtimes
