In This Article

You asked for them, and we’ve delivered! MyFitnessPal recently released new updates for Android and iOS that improve your ability to create nutrition goals that make sense for you, and allow your friends to find you more easily within the app.

New! Customizable nutrition goals Are you giving up processed carbohydrates? Does your doctor want you on a special diet? In the past, adjusting your carb-to-fat-to-protein ratios, or limiting your sodium intake required you to go online to our website. Now you can do it from the comfort of your own phone! With the new Android 3.0 and iOS 5.1 releases, you can set custom goals from within the app itself.

Need help adjusting those nutrition goals? Check out our FAQ page for step-by-step instructions. (You can also find it in the app by going to the main menu, then Help, and then FAQ.)

For our iPhone and iPad users, we’ve also added more time units to the progress screens. Now you can see graphs for the past six months, the past year, and all time. The layout of the measurements table is also better than ever! You can see everything easily, and quickly review the progress you’ve made towards your personal health goals.

New! Friendlier invitations If you want to invite your Facebook friends to join you on MyFitnessPal, they will now be able to see your real name—not just your MyFitnessPal username! Because honestly, who calls you gymgal78 in real life? Your friends will have an easier time connecting with you, and you’ll be able to find them too—so you can start holding each other accountable, stat!

 

Download the new MyFitnessPal Android 3.0 and iOS 5.1 releases from the app store today and let us know what you think!
