What’s New In The MyFitnessPal App: April 2016

Here at MyFitnessPal, we’re always striving to make it as easy as possible for our users to track their food and activity, stay motivated, and reach their goals. Whenever we make changes and updates to the app, we do it with these objectives in mind.

We started thinking that it might be helpful for our users to have a place where they can get familiar with all of the new features we’ve released. That’s why we decide to post a product roundup to recap all of the updates we’ve made to the app.

Let’s take a quick look at what we’ve been up to:

Restaurant Logging

Our Restaurant Logging feature allows you to view calorie and nutrient information for 500,000+ restaurant menus, pick items that fit your goals, and quickly log them in your MyFitnessPal diary.

Future Roundups

Be sure to keep any eye out for future updates where we’ll summarize the changes we’ve made to the MyFitnessPal app.

Please Note: These changes are rolling out slowly so don’t worry if you don’t see all of them in the app yet. Not all of these features are available internationally.

Until next time, happy tracking!
