Windows Update - MyFitnessPal is Available on Windows Phone 8

We're excited to announce that we’ve updated our app for Windows 8 phones. This release includes all the newest features members love on iOS and Android, including the ability to:

  • Sign up and log in with Facebook
  • Add and invite friends from your Facebook contacts
  • Add and invite friends from your Windows phone contact list
  • Enjoy type-ahead food filtering
  • Follow your news feed from your MyFitnessPal home screen

This new app also offers some great live tile features that are specific to Windows Phone 8. For instance, you can pin live tiles to your home screen, including a summary tile with a meter for tracking your daily progress. You can even pin a quick link to the "add to diary" screen to make the tracking process faster than ever.

So if you're a Windows Phone 8 user, we encourage you to update your MyFitnessPal app as soon as you have a moment. And if you encounter any issues, please let us know and we'll investigate ASAP.

Great update. Shame you can't view others diarys or read messages as with the Android or IOS app. Any news as when these features will be included?

Amazing news, thank you so so so much!
scottdorman wrote 45 months ago:
Will the Windows Phone 7 app also get an update? It would be great if you made a Windows 8/Windows 8.1 app as well. Windows 8.1 includes a new "Health & Fitness" app that does some of the same things as MyFitnessPal although it isn't as complete in some features (but includes more on others).

When I try to enter a cardio exercise the app freezes. I restarted my phone. No beans. Soft reset, still happens. Then it didn't and it worked fine. Then the next day it froze again.

I have a Lumia 920

Super awesome! Thanks for supporting this platform! Other calorie tracking sites are being iSheeple and ignoring Windows Phones!

I love the liver tile feature. I did have some trouble adding cardio earlier today but overall love the app!
tahut wrote 45 months ago:
Ever since your last update, this app no longer works for me (Android). It freezes up every time I try to make any updates. Had to switch to a different app. I hope this problem gets corrected ASAP.

Hi, this isn't available in Australia. When I try to download it tells me 'not available in my region'. Can this be fixed, am I doing something wrong?
BioMechHeretic wrote 45 months ago:
Definitely great guys, but how come on the "nutrients" page the items that you're over on that used to be bright red are now the absolute darkest red possible, making the numbers barely distinguishable from black numbers around it? Otherwise working great!

I don't know how to get more than the basic myfitnesspal tile on my homescreen... can anyone tell me how to do it?
freakboy2k wrote 45 months ago:
Awesome, love the update! Cathisuevo you need to go to the Home page, swipe up, and tap "pin daily summary".

Love the new app, especially the calories live tile! Please can we have the ability to send and read our messages though? That would be the icing on the cake (naughty!)

Sigh, Hope something will be coming soon for the new Blackberry. Very disappointed to join MFP & can't access it on my mobile.
GoLeo wrote 42 months ago:
Very nice app. There is one feature I would like to suggest. As well as being able to pin the remaining calories to the start tile would it be possible to pin my ticker to the start tile? Perhaps an idea for a future version. I think it would be very motivating. Thank you.

Please... this would be wonderful for windows 8!! Now that the bing health and fitness app has been discontinued I feel a bit lost in terms of keeping track of my calories. I would pay $5NZD or more... even $10NZD to get this app on my laptop.
