Website Update – Gets a Facelift

We’re excited to announce that we’ve updated our website, This release offers a much cleaner user experience including:

  1. The addition of “add food” and “add exercise” buttons to the home page to help you get logging even more quickly!
  2. The addition of a smart calorie meter on the home page to see where you are against your goal, how much exercise you’ve earned, and where you’ve netted out with regards to calories.
  3. Removal of the left-hand column on the home page to allow for more space to view content
  4. Streamlined re-styling including a new navigation bar.
  5. Improved reporting:
  • We’re now using HTML5, not Flash, so you can even view your reports on your phone.
  • You can hover over the chart to see actual values.
  • Instead of having to go back-and-forth between pages to view different charts, you can now see them on a single page.
  • We’ve added your goals to the relevant charts, as a reference point!

Ultimately, we hope these changes will significantly improve your experience with the website. So take a look and let us know if you have feedback! And if you encounter any issues, please let us know and we’ll investigate ASAP.
