iPhone Update 3.2 Now Available - Barcode Scanning, Reminders, Push Notifications, and More

We're pleased to announce that a new version of our iPhone app is now available in the App Store!  This update is chock full of some of the features you've requested the most, including:

  • Barcode scanning: Barcode scanning is finally available on our iPhone app!  Just scan the barcode of a food you've eaten to easily find it's match in our database. Please note: the scanner requires an auto-focus camera and consequently only will work on iPhone 3GS or later models.  Unfortunately, all of the scanners we could find that would work with the iPhone 2G, 3G, or the iPod Touch were much too expensive to incorporate into a free app.  But we're still looking, and hopefully we'll be able to include a scanner that can work for older iPhones in a future update.
  • Reminders: Set reminders in the app and get notified when you've forgotten to log your meals.  
  • Push notifications: Allow the app to send you push notifications and you'll receive notifications when someone sends you a message on MyFitnessPal, comments on one of your status updates, and more.
  • Macronutrient Pie Chart: The Daily and Weekly tabs now include a pie chart showing your macronutrient breakdown for the day or the week.
  • Additional Reporting Periods For Progress Charts: You can now chart your measurements over 1 month, 2 months, or 3 months.
We've also added some video tutorials to teach you how to use the new features.  If you like the videos, let us know!  We'll try to add more in our next update.
 
As always, if you run into any issues or bugs with the new update, please just let us know.  We'll look into them ASAP.
 
Hope you are all enjoying MFP!
 
Mike & Al

You have done an amazing job - Love the updates! I especially love the pie chart view.

I did notice a discrepancy between the %age values for the nutrient goals on the web-based version vs. the app. E.g. carb goal on my web profile is 50% but on the app it shows my carb goal is 56%...

I tried re-setting but they still seem to be 5% off between app and web...

Thanks in advance!

I love the app (the old one and the update) my only concern is when I input my weight on the app, the progress chart doesn't show the correct weight for the day. For instance, I put 127.2 in today, and it came up as 128.3 on the graph. Is this an average? It didn't used to do it in the old app. Thanks!

nomnomgal wrote over 3 years:
I've only had minimal success with the Barcode Scanner, and the one thing that it found, was the right brand, but the wrong version of what I was having, so I corrected it. I reckon that it's because I'm living in Sweden, so the database isn't going to have many of our products. But when I've scanned something, and end up adding the food, it doesn't save the barcode for the next time? I think that would be good, like when we add our items to the database, we can make it available to other MFP users, the same with scanning a barcode and if it's not in the database, save it with information that we input? If this is already available, I've yet to find it, but if not, I'd love to see it implemented.

Like a few people have noted above... On the website I set my caloric breakdown at 40% protein, 40% carbs, 20% fat. On the iPhone app it reports 45% pro, 45% carbs, 10% fat. A small bug I assume.

Other than that LOVE the update! Thanks so much!!

is it supposed to be the goal percentage?

Can I just say that I love MFP website, but I love the MFP app so much more. The reports on the app are so much better (I LOVE the pie chart break down for what portion of my cal came from fat, protein, and carbs), I like that there are reports for all of your nutrients on one page, etc. I hope MFP plans on adding these to the website in the future!

i would love this for a blackberry! Then you could sell the app to big companies as they try to get their employees healthy to mitigate costs for health plans! Think about it---- all of those company issued blackberries and all of that advertising revenue.

Barcode scanning is great, but can this feature be used to create "my foods" in the future? I would love to be able to scan the items I used most often and keep them in my foods list for easier more accurate tracking.

Thanks for adding the bar code scanner to the Android app! But... I would LOVE to have community features even more... it is soooo helpful to connect with MFP friends by reading status posts and posting motivational messages to friends on the website... it would be so great to be able to do this from within the app while out and about! Please show some love to those of us not in iphoneland!

Morning Mike, love the app..would you please work on the duplicates in the food section. also standardize the ways foods are listed.eg. some fruits have "fresh" first and others don't. Look at honey dew and blue berries. Would be a help if the engine would respond with "did you mean xxxx" if the spelling or word sequence was close. Not all of us are good spellers. Amazon is a good example of this. I am loosing weight and as a result of the use of MYFITNESSPAL have a better grasp on the calories I take in...Many thanks meakinh

Mike, I just want to thank you for MyFitnessPal, but also the latest version of the iPhone App. I love the 1m/2m/3m views, and the pie charts for weekly. And of course the scanner is awesome.
I would like to see a text version of the reports on the web version, that I would be able to copy/paste into a spreadsheet for further analysis.
Thanks again.

Mike, this App is awesome! Thank you. I have the iPhone 3G and cannot use the scanning feature. I read your post about the expense. I just wanted to offer (don't know if this will help) that the App, Grocery IQ has a scanner that works on the 3G, and it's a free App. Maybe you could look into what type they use?

The app is awesome, especially for those of us using the macronutrient charts. I love the reports and the ease of recording food on the app. Really nicely done. Any plans to include the community feeds in the app version?

I've been using the bar code scanner without an auto-focus camera on my 4th gen ipod. Works brilliantly. The program is fantastic :)
