I realize that WW Points is trademarked, and you would probably get sued if you added a calculator and points, but even if you added a blank field to the diary entries where users could enter a "points or tracking" value on their own, that would be great.

I currently use 2 apps to track food. I like MFP because I am interested in calories, and nutritional breakdown, but I do follow WW, and track points in another app which is a pain.

Would love to be able to do both in the one app. ;-)

I am interested in that also!

I have only started back on track last week. Yesterday was my one week weight in. I used MFP for a week and I love the app, however, at the end of my first week I was only down 3 lbs. Don't get me wrong I know 3 lbs. is good, but I was dissapointed - normally doing WW, my first week I would be down 5 lbs. I went back today and figured out the points for everything i ate during the first week and i was over in points every day except 1.

I would love to combine both programs because i like the convenience of scanning the bar codes and the food gets entered without typing in each nutritional fact. I also like a lot of the other features as well.

It may be a bit more time consuming but if you know the points value (which I'm assuming you do if you track in the WW site too) you could add the points to the notes section at the bottom of the page.... You could just short form add points.

It actually is possible. Here you go:
