Great Feature Requests/Additions for Future Update!! thenewRubyLu — Aug 04, 2017 08:47AM PDT
Hi! I've been a user of the free/basic edition of MyFitnessPal for over 2 years now and absolutely love the app and can't imagine my life without it. As I joined a gym and started eating healthily, it has been SO HELPFUL to me. I lost close to 50lbs and kept it off; the app truly was key in helping me change my life. Here are a few features I would really LOVE to see in a future release/update (and I think others would too!) Even if these had to be premium features - to be honest, this would probably push me to go premium because it would be so worth it.
1st - an option to attach a photo to what I eat for each meal of the day, without needing to create it as a "meal" in the meals section. A lot of times when I'm lacking inspiration on what sort of healthy things to eat, I look back at what I had for breakfast or lunch months or even years ago. Sometimes, looking at the ingredients, I'm unable to recall exactly how I prepared the food. I see an egg - did I do it over easy, was it scrambled? (for example.)
2nd - I add a TON of my homemade recipes to MyFitnessPal; and would LOVE the ability to add a picture of each, not only so I can share the recipes with others, but also so I can see and remember what this food looked like before I make it again. It would also be great if I was able to add recipe notes or instructions to my MyFitnessPal recipes. Currently, you can only add ingredients, or find recipe instructions on a 3rd party site IF the recipe was imported from elsewhere online, and mine usually weren't. I need the ability to specify oven temp, whether or not to grease or not grease the cookie sheet for cookies, things like that. These would be amazing future features that I would love and I think many others would, too!
