IPhone Bug Fix Release v3.4.1 Now Available

Just a quick note to let you all know that we've released version 3.4.1 of our iPhone app today.  This is a bug fix release that fixes a few of the issues we missed in version 3.4. Some highlights: 

  • Sorting your favorites lists are back!  The button is now labeled "Options", but now provides both the option to change your sort order as well as toggle your favorites lists between showing only one meal vs. "All Meals"

  • Meal name headers are visible again for iOS 4.2.1 users

  • Adding ingredients to a recipe while in multi-add mode works again

  • ...and a whole slew of other minor bug fixes
Just visit the App Store on your phone to update to our latest version.  And as always, if you run into any problems or issues, just let us know and we'll look into them ASAP.
Thanks, and hope you're all enjoying MFP!

iPhone Version 3.4 Now Available - Search Your Favorites List, Passcode Lock, and More

At long last, we've released an update to our iPhone app today.  In this release, we've added a few small but very helpful features:

  • Search Your Favorites Lists: If you’ve been using the app for a while, your favorites list may be quite long, and it may be hard to find the food you’re looking for.  In version 3.4, you can now search within your favorites lists only.  For example, if you know you’ve eaten “strawberries” before, just tap on the “Recent” tab, then start typing “strawberries”.  Your Recent list will be filtered as you type, showing only items that match the search term you’ve entered. Even with hundreds of entries in your Recent tab, you can still quickly find the one item you are looking for.

  • Easily repeat your last meal: If you ate the same thing for breakfast today that you ate yesterday, we’ve added a new feature which let’s you easily log the same meal with just a couple of taps. Let’s say you had coffee, granola, and a grapefruit for breakfast yesterday, and you had the same thing for breakfast today.  Under the Meals tab, you’ll see a new row at the top of your meals list.  Tap on it, and you can quickly add the same items from your last breakfast.  On the next screen, you can edit portion sizes or quantities as appropriate, then hit “Add” to add those items to your diary - that’s it! With just a few taps, you can now repeat your entire previous meal.

  • Use multi-add mode automatically: If you frequently use the “multi-add” button on your diary page to add more than one food at a time to your diary, just turn the “Always Use Multi-Add” option on, and the multi-add checkboxes will now appear every time you add to your diary.

  • Change your default tab: If you find yourself using your Meals tab or your Recipes tab more often than your recent tab, you can now change your default tab.  Tap “Default Search Tab Settings” and choose which tab you want to open by default when you start to log a meal. 

  • Passcode lock: Last of all, we’ve added a Passcode Lock option to the app, for added privacy.  Set a passcode, and you will be required to enter the passcode each time you open the app.
If you have any questions or run into any issues with the update, just let us know and we'll look into it ASAP.
Thanks, and hope you are enjoying MFP!
