JMTK51 - The app is improved accessibility for blind people
When I first reviewed this app I was unable to use the calculator function and the quick add function was not working properly since I did that review weight watchers has made tremendous strides in making the app accessible for those who have partial or complete vision loss. They are truly committed to making sure that we can access the same information our sighted counterparts have on a daily basis. They have worked hard asked questions and quite frankly done more than many companies to make the app workable. Since my last review I have discovered that the quick ad is usable and user-friendly. The Calculator no longer exists but that is because of a change in the program not an accessibility problem. With the new points program designed for each participants personal use, it is completely accessible. We are able to sign up, we are able to do all the surveys, change our surveys at any time, and access all of the foods on our plan. The activity sections are markedly improved and the accessibility is greater than it was when this free feature first became available. Overall, I think the difference in this app is astounding and all of the weight loss or weight program apps I have seen this is the most accessible. Weight Watchers or WW or wellness wins is truly committing themselves to keeping the app accessible because they believe that the use of it is a right for all
Captphrede - Weight Watchers App is incredible!!!
Over the last 20 years I’ve lost weight using Weight Watchers principles a few different times. When I was going to Weight Watchers there was no such thing as an “App” for anything. We went to the meetings, weighed in once a week, and together lost weight and learned to change what we eat. It worked! Unfortunately the three times I reached my goal I eventually lost track and gained the weight back. This has happened once again until recently I decided enough was enough and the first thing that came to mind was how successful I was at Weight Watchers. As I began to look into signing up again it became apparent there was this Weight Watchers App that I could join instead of going to in person meetings, and what with the pandemic still an issue, I decided to give the app a try, so I signed up for it, and downloaded it. I have been using the app for about a week and a half, and find the App to be amazing! There are so many things wrapped up
Into the Weight Watchers App I am already becoming very successful with over 5 pounds of weight lost on my goal to lose 60 pounds. The app is extremely user friendly in every way! There is even a scanner that scans to food label and you can find out how many points each food item is. There is a tremendous amount of social media related groups as well where I find fantastic support, recipes, and encouragement! For the price of using the app it is a steal! Truly remarkable!
Raheem Akil - Biggest little helper ever
I don’t think I could make it without this app. The old way we had to write everything down this way the app keeps track of it for you. Love the barcode I know how many points something else before we even purchase it. I also love being able to put chain restaurants in and seeing how many points everything is before we go out to eat. Thanks again I really appreciate it and as we all now getting it off as a battle And keeping it off is the war! I am a lifetime member and sure appreciate this app. An update on my previous review. Letting you pick each product for each meal before you go back to the main screen helps a lot it’s like you get one wholemeal picked before you have to go back that makes a big difference. Weight Watchers never stops amazing me at the effort they put forth to help you lose weight thank you so much. I keep adding onto this and one thing I really really like now is looking up different restaurants and finding out what I can eat before I go out for dinner that is a big help. The app just gets better and better you can now go back-and-forth and pick your meal without getting all the way out of your lunch menu I don’t believe I could’ve made it without this app that tells me everything and I can still use the barcode finder in the stores for things that I’m not sure if I really truly enjoy it and I believe it is a big help for anyone watching their weight
Krispie 8 - Very user friendly app
I find this is a easy app to use to track meals / points. I love the integration with my Apple health app and my Wyze scale app ( which links with Apple health). It also tracks my steps and uploads to WW app. The best part is using the barcode to get points for the food product. But on top of that, you have a lot of options to see exactly what your points are if you using more or mostly less than the item. You can change measurements. For example, granola has a lot more points than normal cereal. I can look at the points per quantity and see if I only eat 2 T instead of a 1/4 cup it’s less points. I love walnuts with my breakfast. I can see that 2 walnut halves are a lot less than 1/4 cup. It teaches you to prioritize you points per portion. Whether it’s worth it to use the max points or will a smaller portion so you have more flexibility later that day. I’ve also made a few mistakes tracking my meals on the wrong day or put under wrong meal, you can edit and remove or change the day. The recipes are inspirational. As a lifetime weight watcher for 45 years this is so much easier to use. I found my weight loss was stalled, so I reevaluated my Zero points list and realized there were Zero choices that I really didn’t need (i.e. milk items with more fat, I only use fat free) that gave me more points daily so I had more flexibility. Kudos to the team that created this app!
LizMaRoFa - Awesome app!!
This app offers so much, including making it your own, adapting their resources on your own style and needs. It is so diverse, includes different levels on intensity and types of exercises. ( HIIT, running, stretching, yoga, cardio, dance) It includes articles on every aspect that affect and impact our eating patterns and weight management, such as anxiety, sleeping patterns, habits on eating more unhealthy foods, self esteem, etc. Most of all it takes care of each one in a holistically way, including: mind, body and spirit to fulfill your wellbeing in a healthier way. Facilitating on reframing reframing those “stuck” beliefs we can have in our minds and how they continuously have a domino effect on our actions and emotions making us to go to unhealthy choices to avoid feelings and all of these happen in automatic pilot. Let’s pause be aware of this precious gift of the present moment and begin to be aware of our choices. Look up for your “mojo”, your “for what” I want to loose weight. Remember each one of us is a beautiful and gorgeous being and we want to fulfill our purpose, enjoy life at the fullest, share and be there for the ones we love, for all your f that and much more we need to be energized, healthier…. It is NOT a matter of having a “skinny body as a model”, it is about your “why you want to be healthier, vigorous, energized”. Be courageous, BE BOLD!! Thank you WW and I am very grateful that Oprah is part of your team.
AshConley - Rude Customer Service
My mom gifted me a year long subscription to help get into shape for when my husband gets home from the Navy. When I opened the app, it insisted on me only paying through iTunes and would not allow me to just put in card information like other apps. Because of this I had to add my moms card info into my iTunes account and set it up at primary. This is irritating because what ends up happening is either I’m paying for the subscription myself (with my card being primary), or she ends up paying for any apps/music subscription/anything already connected to my iTunes Pay (with her card), which is completely ridiculous in my opinion. I called customer service to see if there was a way I could just set a payment method for the app itself and not through any other accounts. The lady I talked to was very rude. Was cutting me off while I was talking, repeatedly told me that it was “not her problem,” and transferred me to iTunes who still were unable to help me because they can’t have cards in iTunes pay that are primary for only some things but not others. I still don’t have any resolution and I wish there was something I could do about this as it seems like it should have been an effortless thing to set up. Even if it is through iTunes pay, maybe have an option to “gift an account” so a different payment method could be used. Very disappointed and sad that I have to make this review without even having the opportunity to really try the program.
Newsmax - Love the app
I so appreciate all that you guys do with the app for us and our success! But it’s not perfect, I’m really disappointed in the fact that the rewards GIFs are so an interesting I don’t want to join anything I don’t want to membership for a month to anything, I want to earn fun stuff like the hats we used to have and the charms we used to have it have I so appreciate all that you guys do with the app for us and our success! But it’s not perfect, I’m really disappointed in the fact that the rewards GIFs are so an interesting I don’t want to join anything I don’t want to membership for a month to anything, I want to earn fun stuff like the hats we used to have and the charms we used to have it would rock if you could get that go on again. Also, I do not appreciate the social/political interests that we put on connect with supporting BLM, or the pride parades or anything like that I don’t want that on my WW app to help me lose weight it doesn’t help me lose weight it adds stress to my life because it’s all over TV so if we could get rid of that too, I have been in weight watchers for the last seven years consecutively and I love it but I want my workshop back in Carson City Nevada 🤗😉 and just one more thing I’m not real happy with the Oprah thing she does not represent me in any aspect of my life! I know it’s about the money, but there’s a lot of us who could care less if she’s there.
Coweieio - WW app supports wellness journey
I returned to Weight Watchers (rebranded as WW) in February 2021, while still staying at home as much as possible. The app is much improved since I last used it in 2016. I attended the WW new member and app academy virtual workshops, which helped me learn the features of the app. Food pillar: The tracking function is the workhorse of the app. It works well enough for me. I tracked everything I put in my mouth since Feb. The vast majority of the time the food is already in the database. I added food twice, created recipes ~20 times. I used some of the WW recipes - all good. Activity pillar: I linked the app to my FitBit. In order for it to work, I had to allow more access than I prefer but the convenience of syncing was worth it to me. I like the access to the exercise videos. Sleep pillar: Another convenience of syncing with my FitBit is that my sleep log loads into the WW app. I choose not to log my sleep into the app by hand. The additional wellness wins are not enough incentive for the inconvenience. Mindset pillar: The audio coaching and Headspace audios are incredible. They are helpful to listen to, even over and over again. Workshop finder helped me find not only virtual workshops but also my local studio. Connect, the online community turned out to be more worthwhile than I expected. I joined my coach’s connect group, which helped my journey. I checked in twice a week.
Tress Ann - Life changing & the only way I have been able to lose weight
I went through some very difficult times concerning a family members health issues. I gained weight, not realizing how much and how fast. By the time I “plateaued” I was several sizes larger. I found myself staying home, not wanting to get involved in many extracurricular activities, feeling awful in general. When I had my physical, my doctor said my “numbers” were awful. My blood pressure was high, my cholesterol was elevated, and I was pre-diabetic. He said “if you don’t lose weight you may have a health crisis of your own”. I told him I had tried to lose weight on several different diets but it didn’t work. He said “I have found Weight Watchers will help you lose weight and IF you stick with it, my other patients have had great results”. So, I said I would sign up 1/1/22. I did. I have lost several sizes, and back to my original weight before I gained so much weight. I feel 110% better all the way around!!! Everyone that sees me that hasn’t seen me for a while asks “what have you done? You look 20 years younger”. I say “Weight Watchers!! I found tracking every bite I ate is why I lost the weight. It works!! It is easy!! Anyone and everyone can do it!! I would recommend Weight Watchers to anyone that is even “thinking” about a life changing program that works. You can do it.
Tct28 - Used to love
Been on WW for years. Finally found a plan that worked for me, the green. Now WW has decided to remove options. I can force it to be like the green plan by removing all but one protein as zero points but this isn’t working. Had lost 35 lbs finally and since this new change in which they know what works best for everyone , I’ve gained 10 back and have been struggling to get it back off
The app does not give you the option to NOT add fitness points which is beyond frustrating. I don’t want to fake myself out and see I have 75 extra points because I workout. I can choose not to use them but prefer not to think I can and still lose as it didn’t work that way for me. So since they don’t give the choice I had to remove my Fitbit tracker connection so now I no longer can track all in one place and try to correlate progress to exercise or sleep habits. It’s two apps now I have to use.
And you can’t turn off adding points for eating veggies which also causes me to be stuck at not losing. So I quit tracking veggies. But some food such as a subway sandwich automatically adds points assuming you added enough veggies to earn a point! They have no idea what I put on my sandwich.
And you have to go through two screens now to add anything because it tracks veggies first but if you aren’t you have to go to a second screen to add anything else.
Seriously think I’ll quit soon as it’s too much frustration and I can track easier in my head.
Watcher for life - Love the app, depend on members on connect, great virtual coaches, and great exercise videos!
I love ww and this app is like my daily diary, tracking device, and opportunity to share with members across the country struggling with similar issues. I even track my sleep daily, which helps me organize my life for better weight loss results. Love the recipe suggestions, articles on health and weight loss, advice from members and coaches. It’s simply the best recent addition to the new ww plan! Oh, headspace offers us additional self help methods of relaxation, and calm for better living conditions especially now while we still deal with covid restrictions. I am totally connected to like minded weight loss members and coaches who give the best support and encouragement during these tenuously crazy times. I was able to continue meetings all through the pandemic by staying virtually connected through this app. For me, it has been a real life saver. Very important part of survival and thriving! Great to connect with like minded members navigating the rocky waters of our weight loss journey, learning to overcome obstacles together, and joining efforts to face helpful challenges that bring us closer to our goals. Yes, I really need, like, enjoy this app. It’s a great supplement to the knowledge I get from my meetings. Thanks for being the very inspirational,knowledgeable organization that you are.
Mama meee - WW still leads the pack
Over 50 years ago my mom joined Weight Watchers. She spoke fondly of a woman who I believe had started the program. Jean N. This was my moms first real success at weight loss that endured. Eventually mom became a counselor. I still have the old scale she used for weigh ins! She always held to the belief that WW was the hands down leader in weight loss. I am now 78. My weight has fluctuated and I have tried several programs. Weight Watchers always worked well for me but I hated going to meetings. Now I find myself needing to shed excess weight again. I looked into WW of course and was delighted to find the personal points on line option with a well designed app and access to all sorts of helps and countless options of good foods to eat for FREE and still lose weight. It is actually fun! Finding recipes is fun! Discovering snacks that can easily slip into your daily points is fun. I’m having a great time and a bit over three weeks in have shed 10 lbs. Increasing my water intake has proven to be a game changer. Creating free vegetable soups that fill you up any time of day is a throwback to an old WW soup recipe my mom always made using garden veggies and root veggies and cabbage. I LOVE IT! Bottom line, WW is definitely the leader of the pack, constantly reimagining, constantly improving, constantly changing lives with healthy options. Thank you old friend.
Pattimartinez - I love the WW App
I am returning to WW after many years and the app has improved exponentially! I have used the scanner and it has found everything I have used it on when before it was about 1 out of 10 items would be found. I'm enjoying the smart points system and eating fruit again after toying with Atkins for almost two years. I like that it synchronizes with my Fitbit. One thing that miss is tracking my water consumption. (WW has listened and now has water tracking). I like that recipes are built into the app and the ones I have made have been fantastic! I also think having a place where you could write a daily journal would be a great addition to the app. (WW now has a journal section under the weight tracker). However I think adding it to the daily It could be a great way to note how you were feeling to perhaps help you define if you were emotionally eating and whether you were at a party and that was the reason for consuming a bunch of weekly points and even what your workout was like that day, etc. I just think that would be a great thing to add. Also I have an Apple Watch and I do like the quick add feature and frequently eaten items feature and think it would be great to add a water tracker to the watch app. WW and all of the successful losers have proven that tracking works and this is a wonderful and extremely useful app!
Danakids - I do love the app and the ease of tracking.
However, a couple of months ago my app had a glitch. I called in and explained the problem to no avail. I was told I would just have to live with it. I would like to object to this because I feel I should get a correctly functioning app because I need it and also because I pay for it.
I do not know my exact loss without looking but it is 31 or 32 pounds or so. Suddenly one day the app showed me loosing over 200 pounds and it showed this several times. If I had really lost as much as the app said I would not exist. When I called they looked at it and could not fix it. They told me to reboot my phone. I did and it did not work. They told me to delete the app which I did and once again it did not work. They said they could not fix it and that I knew how much weight I had lost and I would just have to keep track of it myself. I did not agree with this but did not think I could do anything to correct this so I just moved on. However this really is not fair and I feel you should do something to correct it. You have even sent me charms to celebrate the weight I have not lost. I hope someone really reads this but if you treat this the way I was treated over the mistake I do not have much hope.
Anyway I live with the app to track and find point values so I will continue. Thank you

Dree_ - The best nutrition plan I’be EVER tried!
My journey with nutrition and exercise in order to improve my overall health has been difficult. I have tried many diets ranging from low calorie to Keto to other crash diets and nothing has ever been sustainable for me. Just over a year ago I decided to give weight watchers a try because I had remembered a family member tried it a long time ago and had some success. Weight watchers has really help me develop a different perspective on eating as I don’t have to necessarily fixate on carbs calories or fat weight watchers really simplifies all of that by using the point system for daily food consumption. This system has been by far the best thing that I have tried and has helped me lose and keep off about 10 pounds since last December. My results could be way better at this point but due to having Covid multiple times and being a graduate student was stressed I fell off the whack in a few times but I am back on and expecting to have a good outcome. Again I feel that this is the most realistic plan one could try as it is flexible, you don’t have to give up fruits or other snacks that you want you just have to be more concerned about the portions that you’re having. Definitely a program that I believe many people could thrive off of long-term.
Feel rejected - WW app and virtual meeting rooms
The app is good. I struggle with accountability, finding it hard to track daily with my busy schedule. I was extremely disappointed when WW decided to shut down the meeting room I have attended and received tremendous support from for the past 5+ years. Kathy Edmonds, our coach in Woodstock and Strasburg, VA was phenomenal. It was her leadership that kept me and so many other members on track and coming back week after week or for lifetime like me, monthly. I made an effort to attend as often as I could, but definitely monthly when we went virtual. I cannot and do not feel comfortable with a new coach who does not know me nor who has invested her time and energy into my journey. When WW decided to shut down Kathy’s workshop, they literally pulled the rug out from underneath us and shut our support system down. For a business that touts support, WW has cut our support in this rural area in VA. I cannot travel 70 miles round trip to weigh in, and that is what Kathy’s members will have to do. So, please help us out and return Kathy’s in person workshop to us! I’ll continue using the app and trying hard to be successful, but I’d feel so much better making this journey with my friends who were a part of Kathy Edmonds workshops in Woodstock and Strasburg, VA. Thank you! Yvonne Lytton Lifetime member
Pam's Puzzles - Love, love, love WW
I have gained so much weight now that I’m in my 60’s. I even thought about a lap band surgery. I saw WW’s special and I thought okay, I can try this. What do I have to lose besides some painful surgery? I started WW back in late January. To-date I have lost 5 lbs.. I know I have quite a ways to go but I’m in it for the long haul. I went to WW over 25 years ago with the little menu plans, calories and weigh-ins. I did not like the weigh-ins and then everyone knew how large I was and if I lost any weight. It was just embarrassing to me. I think I probably weighed 140 lbs. to 145 lbs. back then. I started this new program at 200 lbs. and I’m just under 5’ 2”. I described myself as a short rolly polly, which I used to think was funny, but with my health situation, it’s not too funny anymore. Thank you WW and all the people I’ve met online since I started. I follow a bunch of people and get some great recipe suggestions. Everyone is so friendly and supportive. I don’t feel intimidated at all by doing everything online. I love the simplicity of the new WW program! I especially love the zero points category! Every time I open the fridge, I grab a handful of grapes. I love grapes and cantaloupe. You cannot get cantaloupe in the winter, but you can sure get grapes all year long. I love, love, love WW. A special fan, Pamela Myers
Lady with experience!! - Perfection!!!
To live without a plan is to fail whatever you’re doing. At 74 I finally realize that and decided to lose the pounds I have taken 20 years to gain. I am not computer literate at all, but the weight watcher staff helped me and I find it is so simple. My plan was to determine an outline for breakfast lunch dinner and snacks. I was able to do this and write it on paper with my goal at the top of the paper. Then I was able to put the foods I love into the plan breakfast lunch and dinner and snacks, and follow it daily. I have been a member of weight watchers for six weeks going on seven. And I have lost close to 15 pounds. I say close because on their scale it’s 14 on mine it’s 15. Of course I’m nude when I’m weighing!!! I have tried every diet in the last 20 years and successful in losing the weight only to gain it back. I don’t see this as a diet I see it as a lifestyle change and I’m loving every minute of it. I hope to lose 2 pounds a week until I’m at my goal. The hope becomes fact by making my plan, and happily sticking to it because I’m eating all the foods I like!!!
Do yourself a favor and join weight watchers. By the way I’m not affiliated with Weight Watchers in any capacity other than a client!!! It is so easy to determine how to stay in a weight loss trajectory with this app.
Lainwyn3am - App is amazing - but why can’t I remove items from my tracker anymore?
I’m pretty sure I spent the bulk of the holidays promoting the WW app to friends and family, who were impressed with my weight loss progress. As I told them, the app has so many amazing features - not the least of which is the community functionality that lets you connect with others, create and share food and recipes, and find support.
After getting back from the holidays and beginning to track again, I found I had entered food in the wrong day and when I went to zero the incorrect entry out, I was prevented from doing so. The app will no longer let me remove an incorrectly tracked item, and won’t let me reduce the amount to 0. So I’m counting points I didn’t actually consume. Why the change to something so inflexible? Why not just pop-up a question to ask a user if they meant to enter a 0 in the serving size rather than eliminating the option to zero out an error?
That’s a pretty frustrating UX and may make me less confident about tracking in a timely manner. If it changes my behavior to discourage timely tracking for fear I will enter something incorrectly and not be able to make a change, what will keep me tracking as I should throughout the day? Isn’t that undermining the behavior that the app is supposed to encourage? Please fix this.
Yohuallix - It’s getting better with each upgrade
I first became a WW member 3 years ago, and back then, the app was pretty nice. Unfortunately, my heart wasn’t in the right place and I ended up leaving the program a month later. I gave it a second chance a year ago, and I found the app to be better than the last time I used it, because they added the barcode reader and definitely made tracking easier. I left the program a few months later because I became pregnant, but came back as soon as I could, and I was totally amazed with the upgraded app. It has a way bigger library than it used to, and it’s even more user friendly. The only reason I didn’t gave it 5 stars is because sometimes it’s hard to find some items. For instance, the other day I was looking for “fresh strawberries” in the search engine because I wanted to track it, but because I was searching for other packaged snacks before that, the option list only offered stuff like “frozen strawberries”, “dried strawberries”, “strawberry cereal”, etc. I got tired of scrolling down looking for what I wanted, so I waited to track the strawberries later in the day. I know this could be solved if I save the items I want, so it’s easier for the search engine to figure out what I’m looking for, but sometimes I forget (yes, I suffer from “mommy-brain”). I don’t know if the problem can be fixed, but it would be great if it could.
Kimsthoughtson - WW+ app light years beyond pencil and paper!
I joined WW back in 2006 when you still had to calculate you points with their slide rule tool and write everything down in their little log books. It became tedious and time consuming and so I dropped off. Fast forward to today and I’m absolutely delighted to have this little pocket calculator and log on my phone. People are creatures of habit and comfort and this app appeals to both. It remembers past food items for quick logging, it has a huge database of chain restaurant point options, a huge database of surprisingly delicious recipes that are easy to edit, all designed to be efficient so you can get on with your busy life. They also have Connect - a somewhat baseline social media platform where you can share your experiences and cheer each other on. I don’t miss the in-person meetings and have enjoyed this online experience. With ease and comfort I’ve lost 37 lbs in 6 months and I’m sticking with it this time around! My only qualms are - where you log your weight weekly is so tiny compared to the other images on the page I accidentally skip it and have to backtrack to fix it. Connect also has room to be a little more comprehensive. The overall design of the app was a little confusing at first and took a little time to learn my way around all the menus and such.
WWMR.H - Wonderful
This is the first time I have used WW and I don’t know why. My wife had great success losing 80 lbs. The cool thing is that she used her points so she could still drink her wine! I had tried Adkins years ago and had success but this time, after several months of stalling - I just couldn’t start, for whatever reason. I looked at Laurie and saw her -80lbs. success and hey- why not try WW? So, I have. And I must say, this App is fantastic. I have an advantage bc Laurie has experience with this, so I can ask her questions and she pretty much knows the answers. That said, this app is the most supportive, complete and informative app of any kind I’ve used. It’s truly designed to help you succeed and keep you on track. It covers so many foods-it’s incredible! The scanner is so convenient! I scan foods at the grocery store, see how many points it is, then either buy it or put it back on the shelf. That’s just one of the amazing things about this app. If you go out to eat, they have a bazillion restaurants in their data base with almost everything on their menu listed. This helps you make the best decision you can if you must eat out. Changing eating habits is tough and this app is there for you. Do it now- commit and this will help you beyond what I can tell you. Good luck!
Colejaxmom - Used to love the app, but not so much anymore
Is this up last year with my husband and really liked it. Upon rejoining I found the app has changed and not all for the best. A lot of useful areas are hidden and take a lot of school to get to now. I feel like before it was easier to access things like sharing recipes or quick add
The biggest loss of feature that I have is being able to share tracked items. This was SUPER useful for my husband and I as I would cook or prepare something and scan the items and then send them to him and vice versa. A lot of times I would scan an item and then throw it away but I could later share the tracked item with him from the app and he could then take and adjust it to fit the portion or serving size that he ate. Quick adding won’t make adjustments for serving size because it doesn’t calculate the exact nutritional facts- not to mention sharing items was much simpler and way more convenient.
The loss of the share feature really destroyed the app for me. Sharing tracked items was the staple of our previous success and without it we’ve been doing a pretty lousy job of accurately tracking everything. I know the recipes can still be shared which is a little helpful but only covers maybe 5-10% of what we used to share with the app. I’m not sure why WW would remove such a useful feature and intentionally make it harder on people joining or working with a support partner ☹️
*itty-bitty-britty* - Life changing!!
I was skeptical about WW, but then decided that I’ll never know if I never try. BEST choice in my life. The app is super handy and easy to use. I am not good with technology or social type apps, but this walks you straight through. Beginning to end. It is set up to completely accommodate you, the user. It will ask when you tend to eat the most, what your diet is, what your goals are. It’s wonderful! You can choose whether or not you want to be social with the WW community. I chose not to be and I am glad I made that choice just because there is one downfall... and I realize it’s the internet and there are keyboard warriors out there, but people are not always the most positive, uplifting, or even keep things weight loss related on there. Me personally, I feel, (and maybe this is silly?) that maybe there should be monitoring or something because, I see a lot of post about people being mean to others and that’s not cool no matter what the app is. This in particular though, is supposed to be encouraging and up lifting. This is a life changer for the better quality of people’s lives! That would be my only problem with the app. Otherwise five stars all the way!! To anybody that reads this I hope this helps encourage you to make a step towards making a positive change!
Kat Ts - Overall solid but key functionality missing when syncing activity to fitness trackers
New to WW (~2 weeks in) and overall happy with the points system and logging things in the app. Scanning food is really easy. However there’s a MAJOR functionality missing - when I sync an activity tracker like a Fitbit to WW, I cannot remove it. So if there’s a glitch and an activity is logged twice (or in my case, 6 times), I can’t remove it. It throws off the points calculation for the week enormously - I ended up with 179 more points than was accurate for my week. No one in IT or on the 24/7 help can do anything to delete the exercises in the database. I was only advised to change the “week” to after the mistake so it doesn’t show up and then once the week passes change it back. WW is upfront in their FAQ about the problem but I don’t get why developers aren’t working on this for iOS. On forums this issue goes back to at least 2016 and it’s really, really disappointing that 6.5 years later this really important feature is still missing from an app/service I pay a subscription for. I cannot log workouts from the web dashboard. The best I can do is avoid syncing my Fitbit for as long as possible or log my activities into WW directly, both options being really inconvenient for what should be a relatively simple problem to fix. On occasion the app crashes but I haven’t had any issues losing data.
Denise💕V - A Different Approach Worked!
I recently took a new approach to my weight watcher journey. I’m a lifetime member for about 20+ years and I find getting to my goal weight be more of a challenge now that I’m getting older. In the past it was much easier for me to do it. I just tracked, and stayed within a reasonable boundary of my points. I lost the weight doing this. Now that I’m in my 60s I find that I really have to keep within my points. I do this by following the “blue dot” challenge!
Recently I discovered that there are many different things on the app that have helped me. I’ve done the OBE classes- just 30 minutes! I’ve actually listen to the “walk talks”… I’m finding that keeping my activity within a good range is also working using the “activity” program on the app which connects to my smart watch! I often use the recipes as well as create my own.
Job well done with this application! After holding an above comfortable weight for about 5 years I was able to achieve my goal weight once again. It would not have been possible if I had not explored the app and taken advantage of the resources available! So thank you to the creative marketing team behind this program! Keep up the innovative great work!
Bobsprice - CAN AN APP SAVE YOUR LIFE?
YES! This one can. If you track your points daily by using this app and stay within your points it can save your life, or at least enhance your quality of life. You never know how detrimental those extra pounds are until you lose them. I’ve had type II diabetes that this app decidedly help cure. Once I lost the weight my blood sugar levels went back to a normal level!!! With type II diabetes you can start losing fingers and toes, even your feet. I know someone that recently lost their foot because of type II diabetes. If you track with this app and just follow Weight Watchers guidelines you won’t need to suffer so much. I had AFIB, where my heart would just start beating at 200 beats a minute. It would not stop beating that fast! I had to go to the emergency room and have a cardioversion where they shock your heart back into rhythm. It’s my opinion that none of this would have happened if I hadn’t weighed so much. I’ve lost 79.2 so far in about a year. Get this app. Follow the rules and track your points. You deserve this. I want to thank the creators of this app for all the positive things and improvements you have made. I want to thank Oprah Winfrey for saving Weigjt Watchers. You all mean the world to me!

Videobybacon - #WW for the win💪🏼
Pandemic weight is a real. The weight I gained in the early days of the pandemic added the weight I already needed to lose and became a reality that I couldn’t ignore. Doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome on the scale was also a reality. So I made a decision to welcome change and do a new thing. You’ve no doubt heard during the pandemic, “follow the science.” #WW Weight Watchers follows the science of weight loss. 33lbs pounds ago!, I came home from a doctor’s appointment and told my spouse I’m joining Weight Watchers, now, today. My spouse was in and joined too. Collectively, we have lost over 80 pounds. We are both on the #WW Purple Plan, there are color coded plans developed for the ways you already like to eat. The APP provides tools for tracking the foods you eat, (there are zero point foods, the APP guides you through what those are.) recipes, exercise videos, meditation and mindfulness videos/audio, audio lessons, encouragement audios etc. You also rack up rewards points when you track your meals, weigh in, work out using the exercise videos provided in the APP and or linking your Apple Watch or any fitness tracker activity to the APP. These rewards can be redeemed in the #WW store. Do something different. Give #WW a try.
Leolmeda - Works great, love the program.
Lost 30lbs on the program, and the app helps tremendously.
Update: I’ve unsubscribed due to not taking the program seriously at least twice before. But… I always come back! I prefer ww over any other app or program I’ve tried and… when I take the program seriously I see results pretty quickly. I’ve already gone down 3.2 lbs in since Tuesday (it’s now Friday) and I’m not starving. I’m just sticking within my daily points and watching my food choices and there are a lot of O point options under the purple plan and it’s easier to me to track by points rather than tracking calories. I guess that’s just what works for me. And.. I’ve looked at the calories I’ve eaten these last three days and I’ve actually only eaten between 1150 to 1300 calories each day while sticking within my daily points or at least within the blue dot points (I was curious about the calories lol). Give it a shot! I hope it works for you. The app is tremendously helpful with tracking too! PS my workout of choice is walking. I don’t kill myself in the gym. Maybe I’ll have to workout workout later on but for now I’m focusing on my eating habits again. Like I said, this is what works for me! Good luck.
Amy97223 - My safe place
No matter what I need whether it’s encouragement, inspiration, a venting place, a place to share my successes and my struggles, the community that has been created via WW Connect is nothing short of amazing. It’s the salve to everything that is awful about social media. The app keeps getting better and easier to track any food, get recipe ideas, restaurant menus, even see other foods people have created and logged. Activity is tracked as well and you can set any goal you want. My favorite things are: #1 barcode scanner and #2 blue dots. To explain, there are tens of thousands of food items in the WW databanks with points values available for your reference. Immediately upon scanning, you can choose the weight or measurement of that food item and instantly log it in your daily tracker. If I see someone else at the grocery store scanning barcodes with their phone, we can’t help but smile and nod at each other. 😁 The blue dot is a daily “at-a-glance” look at whether you are eating within your healthy points range. Super helpful and also sometimes the source of a weekly challenge I give myself. 🔵👍🌟 If you’re ready to manage your life with a focus on overall health, balance and positivity stop looking anywhere else and start here.
DIN1Engnr - Better Than Meetings!
I’ve done the weekly meeting sessions with both JC & WW - the online system with the app is by far and away better in my opinion. First and foremost, it keeps the program front and center on a daily basis. I can easily look back over my progress and gives me their incentive to “stick with it”. Second, the app scanner makes it a snap to find foods that easily fit into the daily/weekly point allotments when shopping. I can creat my own “meals” for things I have everyday, like ‘morning coffee’, and ‘tuna salad dinner’. The app is always right there on the first screen on the iPad, iPhone, and the task bar on my iMax and Windows computers
The app isn’t perfect though. I have found that the value returned for a scanned item, on several occasions, doesn’t agree with the values in the nutrition info for the food. A point high or a point low - not a big deal, but I always only use the scanner as a guide. Would be nice if could adjust the scanned info in the App, and save it as a “My Food” item.
Taking time to adjust to the App update, but as long as it still supports my continuing the program successfully, it gets 5 Stars.
Major Request: How about bringing the Computer Version up to speed? Computer (iMac) version is only a 1 to 1.5 Star system.
Random_pancake - Love the concept, UX needs improvement
This is my first time returning to WW in years. I had a lot of success in the past (when we had to write everything down) and wanted to try it again. I love the points concept and how easy it is to understand. HOWEVER, the app is so hard to use.. I work in tech designing apps and I struggled! There is way too much promotional information in every tab, it’s completely overloaded the actual functionality of adding foods, saving recipes, scanning bar codes, etc not to mention made it overwhelming to know what to actually watch/read first. I’m sure there’s great content but idk where to start! The first time I tried to add a food I had no idea how to do it.. I didn’t realize the search bar was the access point to everything. More of the day to day functionality needs to be surfaced on the Home Screen with clear action icons and not 3-4 screens deep hidden behind a search bar. Being able to add foods/barcodes/recipes for future use without tracking would be a great feature. Also, it’s frustrating that only some frequent items show up and not others or any of my saved foods when I’m trying to log meals. This app has so much potential but it seems that content creation and promotional ads were prioritized over the functionality and user experience.
Miss Van 21 - Excellent
As a digital product manager who has over 15 years of global experience building technology, it is difficult to impress me. I can say that this app is top notch and blends the psychological aspects of losing weight along with effective tactics to provide user-friendly functionality to greatly support and encourage lifestyle changes which contribute to weight loss. Kudos to the team who built and maintains this technology. One feature recommendation I have is to provide a ‘grocery list’ enhancement which allows users to save off food items which are tracked so they can remember which products to buy when shopping in the future. When they run out, they can tick that food item box adding it to the ‘grocery list.’ I now purchase completely different kinds of foods and want to avoid forgetting which product I should buy in the chips aisle after scanning 30 and only finding 1 or 2 which are WW friendly, for example. WW begins in the grocery aisle, not in the kitchen. I could come up with many other features and in the meanwhile, I compliment the product managers, engineers, design team, and strategists who have not just built an app, but are changing lives for the better.
Schackler - WW Success
We are doing this great plan as a family hitting just a tad over 200# total! There are 5 of us choosing this plan to get healthy. The application is user friendly, love the scanning feature when shopping. Onward to our goals 💖 We’ve all showed a loss as a family we’ve lost over 200#! That’s five people in 7 months. Love the new WW and having it online with so many options. Keeping track is a lot easier. Love the scanning, surprised how often not buying high calorie food when it eats up the points, same for eating out! Love being able to tracking activities. Still going strong some are at their goal and the rest of us are still going on. 💖 Love the WW app, it is so easy to track food and activity! There are so many options offered. Love the scanning and recipe creating. We’re at 45#s each. My daughter has seen success besides losing weight she is able to walk without tiring! 💖 Christmas Season, goal is not to set myself up for failure, plan to enjoy the celebration of our Lords Birth. Then back to my routine and work to lose the last 10#s. Bless this year at 40#s, only 10 more to go and then maintaining! Merry Christmas to the WW group. 💕
Cochjo - App needs some improvement
The app is convenient for tracking your points & keeping you accountable. It’s efficient when paired with your fitbit.
App now tracks your sleep, but why do I have to manually enter information that could be synced from my fitbit?
The food list search feature is the biggest weakness of the WW app, in my opinion. Example: If I want to track a hamburger patty, I have to know that I must search ground beef instead of hamburger or I will get a long list of restaurant burgers, meatless burgers, chicken burgers , etc. Items are not sorted, so I have to keep clicking on “more”, only to see that my requested food is not listed. My suggestion would be to have a filter for a basic food items and one for restaurant food. If I am making myself a burger patty at home, the first thing I want to see is hamburger patty-plain, then maybe hamburger patty with egg & breadcrumbs, etc. I constantly have no choice but to pick a restaurant food to log my meals because the basic item is not there. The food list needs much work and I do know there’s an option to add foods myself. I don’t believe it’s the job of the customer to add foods and enter accurate ingredient values for use of all the other customers. WW should really provide a better search experience with the food list.
Sharksfordinner - Love Weight Watchers hate the App
I find using this app to track my points very frustrating. It frequently takes me three or four tries before I can enter the food I want. Simple things like a banana took multiple tries this morning. I find the search mechanism to not be very smart. I tried entering sugar snap peas and they didn’t come up instead I got coffee without sugar and other totally unrelated items. Eventually I figured out that I needed to search peas, sugar snap. So because my search terms were not in the same order they didn’t find it. Very frustrating.
In addition trying to create recipes is difficult. I wish there was a way to mass import ingredients like with my fitness pal. Instead you have to wade through the frustrating search for each ingredient individually. I have started shortcutting and only entering ingredients that have points because it isn’t worth the trouble. Then even after I’ve created a recipe it isn’t easily found to track. I cannot just enter the name I gave it in the bar. Instead I get other recipes that aren’t mine. I have to scroll down to recipes and the select through a couple of menus until I can search for the recipe I made.
Sure it is pretty and has lots of features but the main thing I use it for is clumsy and not intuitive. It makes me question how long I’m willing to stay a member even though I have been successful with weight watchers before and really like the new points system.
Architectforgood - I love WW and the app
I am enjoying the ability to meet in person again!!! I have really missed being together and the accountability and community and friendship. The updated Personal Points Program as well as new & wonderful additions, workouts, yoga, meditation, featured articles, and programming. This is especially true for the mindset, exercise and meditation guides. It just gets better and better. Still, I really miss some of the previous yoga and cardio walk and run features. Please bring those back!!!! I’ve continue to take advantage of Blue Apron recipes that are already in the app and order meals from Blue Apron. I am starting to do challenges in the exercise areas of the app. These are all excellent features and I’m using them every day! WW is truly the best comprehensive, healthy lifestyle, weight loss and weight maintenance program to guide its members and to address not only our weight challenges, WW provides us with the tools and approaches to improve our overall health and our lives. The friendships I’ve made and community I’ve enjoyed, and continue to develop have grown over the years and are truly extra special. Thank you always WW! Cheryl McAfee Lifetime Member
Rotating mass - WW app
I love it. The app makes entering meals and activity easy and fun. I am having a little trouble searching for “ingredients” rather than pre-cooked food items by national restaurants and chains from my iphone. I figure that’s a “picnic” and it doesn’t usually affect my otherwise very positive experience with the app. And I love Connect! I go there to see the many virtual kindnesses that people extend to people who are struggling and need some support. That tells me that the community works together to hold that space for people who need that support with the challenges of weight loss, body image, gender roles, physical health issues, mental health challenges, addictions, and healing in our country where bullying, racism, and other societal problems that divide the usa and many other parts of the world. I give some of the credit for that to Oprah whose own healing from adverse childhood experiences and the role she created for herself as a leader in American culture for the health and well-being of Black people, all women, and other American minority people. Go, WW. Thanks from me. And I’ve lost about 16 pounds since June 3rd or so. Appreciate the support from the lifetimers, coaches, member chefs who have blogs for recipes. Cool community.
Gingersnap in Merced - On the Road Again💫🎶
I’m now about to turn 75 in February with 25 extra pounds around my middle, lethargic, uninspired to do much of anything. Then a friend mentioned that she joined WW. This comment reminded me that when I was 39 I joined Weight Watchers, reached my goal & became a Lifetime member before I turned 40. Attended regularly for about 4 years and gradually drifted away from attending & pounds gradually returned. Mid 50’s brought me back once again to weekly meetings and once again returned to goal weight and healthier habits. These were the days when we had to write every bite down! Well now that I’m about to turn 75 I want that vitality & enthusiasm back. I want to stop eating my feelings. I’m delighted with the new and improved WW program & the ap is so helpful in helping me keep myself accountable. Our weekly meetings are filled with lifetime members who come every week because like me, they need the weekly weigh ins, support from one another coupled with the tremendous benefit they are to the rest of us! Gratefully I’ve realized that I too, will be joining those folks long after my goal is reached so I can maintain my momentum in living a well balanced life with joy and support.
Fangs2 - I'm sick of the problems with the latest upgrade.
Was a good app until this last upgrade.
Since the last upgrade the app keeps crashing if you try to open any of the recipes you personally entered. I contacted the online chat for support and was told to delete and re-download the app. I did this but the problems persist. Every new upgrade has caused more problems. I have been a member over 5 years but have become so frustrusted with the app I'm thinking of dropping using it as it doesn't work well anymore. Ironically at the same time the app has deteriorated Weight Watchers has raised it's use fee 25 percent. I am so frustrated I am planning on dropping out of weight watchers. There are other point type apps to get with no monthly fee to use them. They may not be as full featured, but once you buy them they don't crash when using them.
NEW ENTRY Well here we are in Aug 2018 and another update with even more problems. When I go to my recipes now it only lists the food items but not the amount so if you want to make the recipe you have to go to the website, the app won't work. Again in the chat line I was told to delete and re download the app and it didn't fix the problem. When I finally got tech support they told me they would let the programmers know about the problem. I asked when they would fix it and they have no idea. You should start over the app is becoming useless the bug are growing bugs.
MsCAppel - WW is changing my life, and it can change yours!
I am in my 50s, and and all the things in life affect my body differently than in my younger years. The weight slowly crept on, and it was becoming more and more difficult to stave it off. I don’t believe there is a quick fix in weight loss, so I never buy in to fad diets. I have tried everything, with a lasting approach, to lose the weight I had gained to no avail. A friend, a few years older than me, told me she had lost 25 lbs. on Weight Watchers, so I decided to look into it. WW has been helping people lose weight for as long as I can remember, so they must know more of what works than I do…and they do! They are a wealth of knowledge and can provide the tools you need to be successful, but you have to do the work. I have learned so much about food and how it works with and against my weight loss goals. In a few short months I lost over 20 lbs. I look and feel so much better. Leg and hip pain I was suffering from sciatica is nearly gone. I have dropped enough weight to go from a size 14 to a size 8! This program works, and I can easily see myself being a lifetime member! Join now! You won’t regret it.
Crab Legs & Cold Beer - Love the App BUT 🔸Need Pic Zoom & 🔸Recipe Print
✅💗 I absolutely love the WW app as it makes it easier to manage staying on the program. It allows me to quickly track, find point values and recipes and Connect with other ww members. Connect is one of my favorite features of ww as it offers support anytime, anywhere. Any of the wonderful people on there are quick to talk you down from going off track or talk you up from having a bad day. It also allows me to help others which allows me to help myself. I feel good being able to help others, and that adds to the ‘whole’ of the program.
❌ My only complaints are:
1️⃣ While recipes are quick and easy to find on the app and online, there is no way to print from the app at all (besides taking screenshots and printing the pics), & online it prints the entire webpage with all pics of Oprah and whatever else is on the side there. I love Oprah, but I really just want the recipe on the page. And although some say don’t print them it save trees, people are gonna print. Sometimes we have to.
2️⃣ I want to be able to enlarge the pics posted on Connect. I want to see things better. We can enlarge on other social media such as Instagram, so I’d like to be able to do the same on Connect. Please 🙏🏼
Tgr74 - Excellent
I had this app when it first launched and it was just ok. I’m back on WW now and the improvements are staggering. The connect feature is so excellent in terms of motivation. Seeing everyone’s progress (and struggles) is massively helpful on one’s weight loss journey. I would give it 5 stars but I’d like to see more sort options in the restaurant areas. For example if I go to a restaurant and want to search foods by points values it would be really helpful to see the lower point items first. Additionally if weight could sync with Apple health that would be very helpful. Right now I have to use a separate app that syncs my weigh ins with Apple health. It is nice to have them stored in both places.
Update. It’s been maybe a year? I was not able to stick to the program. The tracking becomes too much for me and more than anything because of how my body responds I lose weight so incredibly slowly I lose motivation. In my 20’s WW worked and I had the motivation to keep going. When you lose roughly 1 lb per month it is just hard. Anyway. For lack of a better health plan I’m attempting to start tracking again as it’s New Years 2021. May the force, Oprah, Kate Hudson and now James Cordon be with me.
Busy grandma 78 - Best gift to myself
I’m 78 years old and had been gaining weight gradually over the past several years. I had unsuccessfully tried to stop this trend and had reached a point where I didn’t think it was possible to maintain my weight let alone lose weight. My niece told me how she had lost weight using the WW app and I decided to give it a try. It has been so easy to follow this program. I haven’t changed my exercise routine at all (I do an average of 7000 steps a day and didn’t want to increase to more since I didn’t think that would be sustainable). The Tracking is key since it makes me think about everything that I’m eating. Basically, I’ve been able to cut out lots of the between meal snacking that I had been doing. When I feel like a snack, I might eat a piece of fruit or a package of ‘Bare’ dried apples (1 point) or a cucumber. Having something crunchy fills the need. The App is especially helpful by providing the number of points and nutritional values. Now that I know a sfogliatella (one of my favorite pastries) has 20 points, I might choose something else or I can have a mini one if I have enough points. I have options that work!!
47 lbs Gone - WW Review
I love a lot of things about the app! The plan has been easy to follow, there are a ton of resources available, and the daily tracking have all helped me lose almost 47 lbs! One thing I don’t love about the app is the weekly canned responses - “Congratulations xxx! You stayed within your Budget several days this week and it paid off.” I faithfully tracked my food and stayed within my Budget for 6 solid months!!! I lost weight consistently every week~ to the same response every week. When I first started the response was a little varied, you’ve lost x% of your body fat, you’ve lost x lbs, way to go! I think that should continue throughout a person’s weight loss journey. I’m almost within a healthy ideal weight range and there’s no encouragement to get there other than the canned “Congratulations........” I’m almost at my goal weight and there’s nothing to push me to get there. I know I should not be motivated solely by the app but I think the matrix of the app could do better! What happens when I reach my goal weight? Do I just continue? Is there a maintenance/lifetime plan? Do I still pay monthly once my goal is reached?
A Little Disheartened 😩
Diana2391957 - So nice and easy to use
I started mid January on weight watchers and I can honestly say if you’re serious about losing weight and keeping it off this is the way to do it. There’s absolutely no reason to be hungry to set yourself up to fail. There’s room for days when you need to eat or cheat, whatever you’d like to call it. In any event this diet should work for every lifestyle and you should not go hungry. I do not drink alcohol so I don’t know how that factors in but the points are the points. I often time say to myself and my partner, I don’t know how I’m losing weight with all of this fruit that I eat. Sometimes I eat 4 to 6 servings of fruit a day. I also treat myself to the weight watchers snack bar peanut butter and chocolate. It’s like two bites and enough to satisfy the sweet tooth urge for two points. I also had a revelation about microwave popcorn which also is satisfying. I just got a healthy pop from jolly time of 100 cal bags. I was just about to check out the points and the review option came up. Well happy trails to all of you in your journey with weight watchers but I just don’t think you’ll find it all that much of a challenge if you’re a newbie
Mimi Jane V - Very easy to use
Both my husband and I started WW on January 1st, 2019.
I decided that if I was going to start WW...AGAIN (for about the 7th time!) that there was no time better than starting on January 1, new year, new me! My goal is to stay on it for the entire year - something I had failed to do in the past. So far, so good!
I love the app because it makes my tracking so easy! I simply enter the food I am eating to find the points and the calculations are done for me. I also love how easy it is to track activities. Using the app has made following the plan simple and I think has helped to keep me on track to reach my goal weight. To date, I have lost 17.4 pounds and my husband has lost 30!
In addition to weight loss goals, my husband is close to being taken off blood pressure medication and I am hoping to lower my cholesterol and blood sugar numbers - and then avoid starting any medications!
There are so many other benefits to the app that one can choose to use: recipes, connections with other WW members, meditation and activity resources,etc. It has a multiple scope of resources to help one achieve success. I highly recommend this app to help with meeting health and weight loss goals!
Ttowngrl - WW has been so thoughtful with this app
WW set out to make a tool for their members. One that is all encompassing. Through their thoughtful and caring means, the end is divine. They considered food, activity, & mindset all in one app that not only covers each area but also equips each of us as we take on our journey to health, wellness and weight loss.
With the ability to walk into a grocery store, scan a barcode and instantly know the “Points value” of a food, I can shop healthy and proactively without fear. I can also pair my activity tracker so I know the value of each activity I complete.
WW also gives me the encouragement right in the app to stay on track and make lifelong habit changes that result in healthier living. Whether it be on Connect, a member only social media platform or through inspiring articles, recipes or workout regiments.
This app has been the most helpful tool I have ever had when it comes to a healthy lifestyle. It is virtually essential for lasting weight loss and a helpful hand for those that wish to hold onto that healthy life after they conquer the unhealthy habits they had in their life prior to their journey to wellness.
Joining WW has changed my life and this app has been key!
CincyGirl4412 - Helps keep me on track - free day idea also.
Overall, this app helps me keep on track. I love the scanning capability. I don’t like the fact that when I type in “butter” into the search box, it comes up with eight different things before it says, “butter.” At least it does this on my ipad. On the computer, it didn’t seem to do it. Also in regard to searching, on a lot of items it seems like if you don’t type in the exact text that’s on the product you won’t find it. That’s annoying. I should be able to type in the general name of an item and be able to find it. Another thing I’m realizing isn’t helpful, I did switch to using fitness points instead of regular weeklies, but I didn’t lose a pound that week. So obviously you just need to at least stay within your weeklies to lose, and often not use your weeklies at all - at least with me.
Just an idea - I just can’t do seven days a week, so I use my weigh-in day as a free day. I try not to go wild, but if I’ve been craving something, I go ahead and have whatever it is, split it with my hubby, perhaps. Might be cool to incorporate a free day, maybe it costs you one day’s worth of weeklies or something or it costs you prize points, like 50 prize points or both.
Kimrios2002 - Can’t Track FitPoints
This was a great app until it stopped working the way it should. The app stopped tracking my FitPoints Stay Active at Home on my iPhone a couple weeks ago after an update. Today I finally updated it on my iPad and now I can’t track my FitPoints Stay Active at Home on the iPad either! And the FitPoints on Stay Active at Home have been reduced, there used to be 4 points for a higher intensity minute walk/run and now it only gives 1 point. Basically it just gives you one point for whatever exercise option you select. But no matter what I can’t get any FitPoints! I have logged out, and also deleted and reinstalled the app but it still does not work correctly!! This is very frustrating. Please correct the app as soon as possible!
Update: the app will no longer allow me to manually track activity, after your recent update for both the iPhone and iPad. I’m using the Stay Active at Home audio workouts, and the buttons are white or are grayed out, they don’t do anything when you click on them. I have already submitted a ticket to have this checked out. The gal in your Priority dept said she was having the same problem. This has nothing to do with being connected to another app or Fitbit. And it doesn’t have anything to do with FitPoints variations, as I am unable to record any FitPoints. Please correct the app ASAP!

Parkvilletragic - A very carefully constructed way to lose weight.
In order to keep my weight manageable I have signed up and attended Weight Watchers meetings many times over a period of around fifty years. Because I almost always succeeded with Weight Watchers I had great faith in the meeting psychology and the weekly weigh in. Even though the app has been around for a few years now I didn’t think an app could possibly be as successful and avoided ever using it. But the Covid 19 pandemic has meant no more WW meetings. And like many I have sadly stacked on too much weight during our mandated lockdown and felt a positive outcome of being locked up would be come out of it having lost those extra kgs. So I downloaded the WW app six weeks ago and have faithfully stuck with the tracking and weigh ins. I’ve been amazed at the power of the tracking. I am hooked!
The data base of the food and meal options is very good. The recipes are great to turn to when your tried and true meal options are getting a little stale. The exercise options are terrific and the always constant and positive vibe is quite addictive. I enjoy the companionship of the community so much. This is a really great App. It works and has been a wonderful companion through the hopefully latter stages of this pandemic.
Flazz21 - Weight watchers
Firstly I have to say I am Loving WW, at first I was very skeptical about WW and if it had actually worked, I have lost weight already!!! And the food and the recipes are absolutely delicious. There are so many delicious recipes to choose from, you can eat anything and nothings off limits and still you can loose weight! plus you can track sleep and exercise and they also have exercise programmes at all stages for everyone to try and enjoy! The app is what makes it easier for me. I can find recipes, plan and track my recipes for my daily meals, I can also make my weekly payments plan ahead of time to make it easier to also find a meal. I can also track my weight, sleep and exercise and also the amount of water I drink. It’s easy to walk through, I can join chats and get the support and help from other people also, and also join challenges and earn my self badges. I can also shop from the app with WWs snacks and books and other things to help you loose weight along the way.
The app is very easy and so much helpful info to help guide people with it. I would not only highly recommend WW to everyone I would also recommend using the app as it’s convenient to use anywhere and easy to use! Thank you WW!
So-you-dont-like-my-name? - What and why I like about WW.
OK! I’m about 3 weeks into my 2nd round of ww. Not much weight to lose because I got to goal last time, but some health issues have led to some flab piling on again.
I hated the app when I first got it - it’s quite complex and with nothing to explain how to do things I was completely lost at first. Old-fashioned trial-and-error helped and now I’m mostly on top of it. Now I think it’s great and a fabulous tool for people like me who like to figure things out for themselves. An e-mail with a down-load-able, printable file on “what-to-press to get-to-where on the app” would be extremely helpful, especially for newbies like me who are generally computer-literate, but not maybe particularly I.T.-savvy.
What I like about WW is that it gives its members skills in not only how to lose weight, but in coping with the stresses of day-to-day as well as how to choose what we eat more carefully to stay healthy, which ultimately will see more of us being less of a drain on the health system. It educates its members.
Whateverwilldo - Bring back PP
Not really app related but feedback for WW as a whole. I love the program, I lost 20 kg quiet easily but then for some reason we changed to SP which I struggled with, then the zero point foods were introduced and weight loss stopped. It became very hard, not like PP at all where I could still have a coffee or a nice treat
The very reason WW worked was the accountability ( tracking ) I don’t get how WW doesn’t see it goes against the very essence of what WW was and still should be ... it’s very disappointing, and like many people I’ve canceled my membership and joined groups where people still follow the PP plan
It’s sad to feel like making the $$ by constant changes is more important than helping those who really needed this, and I get the new system works for some but WW has to realise it doesn’t work for all
Naughtynurse22 - WW app
I really like using the WW app. I have lost 8 kilograms, Met my goal weight, have maintained this weight loss and am now a lifetime member. The app keeps me accountable in tracking my points and recording my weight. However, what I love mostly in the app are the fabulous recipes. I hardly ever make the same recipe twice. The healthy recipes that I cook in bulk are the key to my success. My only criticism with the recipe section of the app is that it does not specify how to prepare ingredients. For instance I know I need 2 carrots but should I shred or chop them? Ok I see I need 6 tomatoes should I cut them into big chunks or dice them? The older version of the app used to specify but the latest leaves you wondering on every food item especially fruit & vegetables. Please correct this then I would gladly give 5 stars! I pay $27 a month for this app and feel for that price everything in the recipes should be crystal clear.
Nowjan - WW App - best tool to aid weight loss
I love the WW app. I use it to track my daily foods so I can keep an eye on my points. I use the barcode scanner all the time. Helps me to make better healthier choices when shopping. By tracking my points it allows me to adjust my choices for meals or snacks. I call it “compensating”. If I have something naughty, I’ll track it and then I can “compensate” by choosing a more zero point based choice for the rest of the day. Alternatively if I know I am going to be eating out I can try and view the menu at the place I’m going to and then “Compensate” the day before, day of or day after to ensure I can adhere to my daily (weekly) points. Tracking and barcode scanning my faves. 😊😊
Tessa Pomeranian - Activity sync issue
When you have a workout listed in activity the other steps for the day don’t sync it shows them as zero steps. Also it often blanks out other days in the activity tracker and I have to keep re-syncing to fill them all in. Often I find that the points earned in activity tracker can be disjointed as they don’t come out logically eg. 4000 steps earned 3 points but 3000 steps earned 5 or 6 points. That’s illogical earning more points for less steps!!
How do I report this issue? There is no ability to report issues to developers from within the app.
That’s a real flaw in design.
The other aspects work quite well for daily food tracking etc.
I hope you take these issues Into consideration in the future updates as they are really very frustrating.
Cato99 - Pretty good
Quite enjoying the app, couple of things - firstly i often can't find the food i want to track, which is annoying enough i have to knock it down to 3 stars; secondly its not as intuitive as i hoped, it was 4 days before i got a grip on some of it (or even noticed it was in there)... probably mostly my fault as i didn't do much research, i was just expecting to count my food and not the other stuff like fitness and synching to apple health, and other stuff i'm still finding out about. But i'm glad the fitness and other stuff is in there, makes the experience much more useful. I do get lost in the app though sometimes and really feel like i may never find those interesting bits again later. Also messages pop up and disappear too quick sometimes, leaving me baffled. Hopefully most of this will become clear soon though.
Arthur7Arthur - So easy to use and track
I love this app. I have only been using it for 1 week but it has made trying to lose weight fun. I love it so much that my Mum has signed up. I love that there are meditations, recipe options, zero point recipes to help guide you on days your getting close to your limit. Tracking is easy and if you connect your Apple Watch/Fitbit/Garmin it tracks your fit points for you. I feel like WW app if going to be the tool I need to shift my 6-7kg. I’ve already lost 1kg and feel like this could be a tool I use for life. Other diets I feel like I am starving myself, I feel like WW forces you to eat the good nutrient dense foods for 0 points. I love veggies, fruit (especially bananas 🍌) eggs and plain greek yoghurt! I feel like I am winning!!! Thank you WW!!!
Rabbitohs1 - Tracking
I found that while tracking coffee it comes up as takeaway coffee skim milk, no sugar. I have my own cappuccino machine that I make my coffee every morning, I never buy takeaway coffee. I would like to see the option of being able to track the coffee without the takeaway added. I have had to track it by quick add everyday & it’s getting fustrating as it doesn’t come up in recent added food lists. I know it still 2 points either way for a regular coffee, but I’d still prefer to have that option. Other than that I’m very happy with the app. I couldn’t imagine not being able to be successful with my weight loss without it.
Chezzy987654321 - Disappointed!! I have rated this as 1 star ONLY because Zero isn’t an option.
I used the WW app a few years ago with great success- I lost 12 kg - the app was absolutely wonderful, easy to use, very intuitive. I loved it!!! I gave that app 5++ stars.
This is a different app. It is a “DOWNGRADE”!! I am totally baffled as to why the “almost perfect” old one was replaced by such a clunky, difficult to use app.
It does track points, which is great, but it takes 5x as long to do it. It’s hard to find recipes, there used to be many more search filters - eg based on meal types, points, special dietary requirements, cultures.... For example it was easy to find an Asian, vegetarian dinner under 7 points, now you can’t use filters to search, you have to search in dinners and read everything so there’s no way you’ll find anything quickly!
That’s only one of the many amazing things the WW app has lost; along with many previously happy dieters, no doubt.
Why was it changed?
Suzihar - WW digital app
I love using the WW digital app because it makes everything about loosing weight so much easier as everything you need to succeed is at your fingertips. From counting points easily, tracking your weight loss each day/week, accessing 100’s of recipes, getting motivational messages to help keep you on track or being able to set personal goals. The digital app allows me to be a member of WW without me having to leave home which is especially good because the nearest meeting group to me is 45 minutes away. The app also allows me to quickly scan foods in the supermarket so I know exactly the points value of any item. I cannot recommend the app more highly. Thank you
TJayInOz - Has a few technical issues
The app is generally pretty good, however it doesn't sync well; eg I can have the app open and be looking at it on my phone, but my watch says "You must login to the app on your phone". And despite having my Fitbit scale added to the app, I have to manually enter my weight as the app seems to have given up syncing with the scale since the weight moved to "my profile". It doesn't seem to be able to pick up the info from Apple Health either which it's set to sync with.
Also, if I have to"create a new food" I generally just give up and go to the website to add it as it's so hard to find the option in the app. (I've stumbled on it once or twice so I do know the functionality is there somewhere)
Once the bugs are sorted out I'm happy to update my review and give it 5 stars.
Wendywillows - Ease of use re WW app
I’m very excited that the app is able to provide me with the relevant points for foods that are linked to my own personal points selections. I’ve been a WW member on and off since 1974, so I’ve worked with a variety of food plans. They were mainly based on paper and pen calculations and using a variety of different tools/books to work that out. This new app removes all that work and I actually have the precise information that is configured to my individual personal points budget immediately to hand. It’s the best tool I’ve ever had and I’m sure it’s definitely helped me to persevere to reach my goal weight again.
SnobbyFizz - Track happy
The app makes it so easy to keep on track, literally and figuratively. Being able to track your food and exercise quickly and easily ensures it gets done. The addition of the barcode scanner to scan food right in....pure genius. Having the ability to add food on the scanner by having the nutritional information pop up on screen has further simplified the process. Oh and last but not least, having the message boards available by a quick click on the app means that if I'm not happy with how I'm tracking, or if I have something to celebrate, I can get help or praise from people going through the same journey (or the online coaches)
Galaxy .....girl - W W app - I’m in love
I live for the weight watchers app. I’ve wanted to lose 10kg for a long time and hadn’t really considered WW - meetings etc!
I know reading other members posts that 10kg isn’t a lot but I’m only short! Anyway I stumbled across the App, and honestly haven’t looked back! Im half way to my goal. I love every part of it-
The scanner is my fave especially when shopping! I love entering my food each day and calculating the points values. I love the WW recipes and use them nearly every day. Especially the gluten free section as I’m a celiac.
So yes I love the app- it’s easy to navigate, interesting, full of great information and tips AND it’s easy to use.
Thankyou WW 🙏
Jackib52 - Fantastic
I have been to ww before but this time with the app it’s fantastic at anytime you can just go to your phone look for recipes, track your food, scan products in supermarkets and talk to a ww coach I have also found it helpful to use Connect to get tips from other people. I have not been able to attend a single weigh in since I joined on 16/6 so will all the tools on the app I have been able to weigh in this morning with a loss of 900g to bring my total weight loss to 6.7 in 7 weeks and seeing as I lost my mother in week two am very happy. I have now been on ww for 8 months and lost 20.4
TheBronStar - Great App but ......
This app is really important to me as this to track how I am going in my weight loss journey. I am unable to go to meetings SO it is vital Works simply and effectively. I often can’t find food???? I am aware that it is difficult to have everything and I am sure many are being added all the time. I didn’t understand what a “serve” was then that was equivalent to 1 cup. I am still not sure what “Individual” is. With my own recipes I believe the amount of SP given is for the Dish not the size that I will eat. Just a few things I’ve noted and still don’t understand. I find things and then after 3 days found them again, it could be me. If a few things were sorted out it would a 5! Today I will give you a 4.
RiotGirl17 - When you consistently track - you do get results.
This food program really works, but like anything, it only works if you use it properly. This app takes the difficultly out of knowing what you should have and how much of it too. However, the knowledge in your hand is only useful when applied. Stick to your daily point limits, use correct measuring tools (scales, measuring cups and spoons, etc), earn those blue dot days (great new feature to help you focus on moderation throughout the week) and you will succeed. But at the end of the day, you must be the one who changes, as great as the app and program are they cannot do that for you.
Missy Belle - Scam - continually charge you and make it impossible to cancel
Buyer beware - this app is a SCAM that continues to charge you for months and months later despite cancelling service.
Do yourself a favor and use another dieting app, any app but this one.
This is hands down the worse company I have ever dealt with. They make it impossible to cancel your subscription and continue to illegally charge your credit card for months. The business model is in violation of Australian law for it’s false and misleading marketing, tricking people into signing up to their product which can not be seen until subscription occurs. Falsely marketing they cater to all dietary requirements when they do not, but this is not found out until you have subscribed. Once subscribed there is no cooling off period, no ability to immediately cancel an unusable service and they make it extremely difficult for you to be able to contact them to cancel the service and cease billing. Instead they continue to charge your credit card.
This business is nothing more than a scam to take your money with no care for customers.
Never again will I ever buy any WW product or service, despite previously using their in person services many years ago.
Leannejustdoit - Needed to chat and could not
I have only been a member for 10 days and urgently needed to ask a question about the app and when I tried to char I couldn’t . It came up with the message that there was a high load or something and it would take 3minutes to chat soo I waited and then after 3 minutes it said I’m can’t chat and I will need to come back another time and chat with someone else. The most frustrating thing was that it deleted my question, that was quite long, and so now I have to re type it and hope I can get someone to answer my question. Very frustrating. Anyway, the tracker app is good.
Peacock Silks - Glitches remain: Fit Points not counted in points remaining, water ‘lost’
Glitches😕 remain - still not consistently counting Fit Points in ’Food’ window totals. Fitpoints appear correctly in the ‘Activities’ window (eg average 5-6 FitPoints each day); however, they often don’t carry-over to the ‘Food’ window, which has sometimes stubbornly said 2 or 4 FitPoints for days on end, despite not being used for food & additional Fitpoints earned daily which should be added to the total. Also, the app has taken to ‘refreshing’ itself by logging me out, which is OK - but it then still deletes all that day’s glasses of water, which need to be re-entered 😕.
Sucada - Freezing
This app is ok but freezes too often and this means using it can become a pain. Consumer use should be seamless and it isn’t. Also sometimes searching for simple things is quite frustrating and not as intuitive as it should be. Otherwise it mostly does what’s needed.
Update- this app continues to disappoint. When working it’s good but everyday there are issues with it freezing and being unable to access data. For people doing WW online this is irritating and time consuming. In addition the chat feeds jumps around when the feed updates and you find yourself back in posts you have read previously. Very annoying. It’s not snakes and ladders guys! You really need to sort this out. People pay good money for access to the app and it should work properly.
Joolzmac1964 - Such a handy tool!
I’ve used the app for a long time now and it is such a help with tracking food consumption, figuring out allowable points for food and for support. I love the scanner - so clever - and Connect is a great community for people who are all on their personal journeys, be they big or small, long or short! The whole program has been very well thought out to create success for all. The thousands of recipes available online is so handy and the recipes are delicious! I highly recommend this app and the whole program - it’s a live-it not a die-t!
Fandrich9 - I had given up
Truly I had given up losing the 60 kgs I needed to lose. I thought it impossible. I have 7 kids, and am so busy, I know fad diets work, I can’t intermittently fast with kids to feed, I refuse to do meal replacement (what am I teaching my kids!!?) This HAD to work in our family without radical change…AND IT DID!!! Over 30kgs gone forever and still going down! Energy is back, as is my ability to think clearly. This is hands down the healthiest, most straightforward and educated way to lose weight…and fall in love with food again!🥰🤩🥳
Ghefjejkfkfddef - So easy to track
I love how easy this app is to search and track foods. Keeps your daily and weekly points tally as well as exercise and bonus points. Barcode scanner is fantastic especially when I am shopping and looking for healthy food choices. My only criticism is searching through recipes. I would love to search for breakfasts or snacks under certain points but even with the points filter the selection isn’t limited and I have to scroll through all the recipes. You can search by ingredient and most of the recipes are great. Definitely worth the money just for this app
Boutiquebec - Game changer for weight loss!
I adore the WW app! It is changing my life with it’s comprehensive recipe and exercise ideas. I was at a point where I was so busy and tired of trying to think of new meal ideas so opted for unhealthy options or just eliminated carbs in order to try and lose weight but this has shown me new and interesting twists in the foods I love, whilst keeping me satisfied and in control of my hunger. Amazing. The 24/7 support is excellent too. My favourite feature has to be ‘what’s in your fridge’ that gives meal ideas with what you’ve got! Total genius!
Anne9350 - App comment
App is great for tracking food steps and sleep but disappointing that it removes the Sunday figures before Saturday has finished which means that even though you reached your goal the app says you didn’t. For example on Saturday morning I had reached 26 fit points but by Saturday night it was down to 21 fit points. Likewise the sleep app changes sleep figures eg after reaching sleep goal one night the next day it says you’ve slept either more than 9 hours or not at all . Also I used to have 28 extra weekly smart points but now only have 21. Is this linked to the fit points I have set?
Shezzwil - Love the app despite glitches
I think it’s a great app but would like to see an edit available in connect comments and the ability to upload a photo in comments in relation to the thread. Having the delete button now is a must.
Still having problems uploading pics to connect. I can only get the choose pics from library once. I then have to shutdown the phone every time I want to post again using photos. It needs to be fixed. Other than that I love the other features.
Sassie Chez - WW Newbie
Two weeks in & thanks to the app I find Wellness that Works the most easy eating regime of the zillions of programmes I have religiously tried over the last 30 odd years. The support through connect & chat is amazing & encouraging. Happy with my blue dots & weight loss to date. Find if I stay on track with my allotted 23 SP I loose weight each day. It’s also gr8 how it connects to Apple Health as I love variety in my weekly exercise program. WW is not time consuming or fiddly & the choice is yours to decide what to eat. The best thing is I never feel hungry or deprived.
SHORT STACK's BIGGEST FAN - Amazing App!
I have been a member with Weight Watchers since August 2016. Since I started, the app has been crucial to my success! I love that I can track food at a touch and can look up the smart point value of foods at any time right from my phone. It has really helped when I am dining out to find healthier options on the menu. The barcode scanner is my favourite feature. It helps me to find the best smart point food product when I am in the supermarket.
Not just this app, but the entire Weight Watchers program I give a 10/10.
I would recommend it to anyone!
Evalfitz - My WW
I first joined and got the first month for $10 I think and found myself to be much healthier after the two or three months I was able to walk without breakfast just felt overall healither but I felt I wasn’t getting much for my money from the online app and thought I could do it myself it wasn’t long before I put the eight j lost back on and felt worn out again so this time I joined for 9months I’m pretty sure..... I’m getting much more support this time and feel like I can do it my sister us also sighned up for classes I don’t like crowds so I prefers online thanks so much
Muchoo16 - Wow WW have things have changed!
Being a long time Weight Watchers participate, I remember when I had to carry around a book and a pencil and tally up everything that I ate all day…manually, then refer back to the book to cross check how much food/points where. Fast forward 20 years and now I can use a barcode scanner and it will immediately tell me how many points a product is plus the amazing ease of tracking points and food straight into the app. Weight Watchers you are really bringing the goods!
Wonka223 - New Member
I’m finding that there is no clear information on the programme I get that it’s all ‘freestyle’. But I feel for new people a simple and clear 4 week introductory menu should be offered along with a sample exercise plan until you get the confidence and Feel for how it works, there is maybe too much information at your finger tips but there is no ‘go to’ section with a set out simple menu/exercise plan to help you start or get back on track if you lose your way
Dont undermine your members - Forced change to plan is heartless
So annoyed that I went to log my food and have suddenly been forced on to a totally new plan and way of doing things at a random log in when I’m super busy and the timing doesn’t suit me to spend hours researching how to change everything.
Why would they not give us choice about when we change rather than forcing a change in the middle of one of the most stressful times as small businesses open up after COVID lockdown?
WW say they understand the complexity of weight loss, yet they treat members with total disrespect compared with other app developers. Forcing change on a random log in rather than offering choice on timing will derail so many people’s weight loss journey, it is a disgrace.
Susie445 - Registering activity points!!!
The only trouble I have is with the activities..... before I used to put in hydro therapy under Special activities ... now there is nothing! I do consistent water activities for 40-50 minutes.... do not know what to register them as! On other days ......
Also I do about 45 minutes of Physio therapy activities ... which include sitting cycling, using thera bands ( think that’s what they are called!) used for resistance training, sliders, standing/sitting form chair, using large ball for body raises as well as toe touching!
Not sure how to register this activity!😜
QueenDivaStar - Game changer for weight loss
I am really enjoying this weight loss platform. It is easy to use, allowing privacy to lose weight at your own pace without fear and shame that can come from “public weigh-ins” and yet allows you to be as connected as you want with others in the Weight Watchers community. I find it extensive and very flexible to create recipes, track food in the go, plan ahead and also learn to make informed choices with food to balance weight loss with living life optimally.
Renners114 - My best friend
I love the app it’s so handy to track my day. I love to scan stuff at the supermarket and keep my head in check. I love the reflection time when I weigh in and have to rate how I went and my goal for next week….I may not achieve these every week, But the app makes me do it each week and therefore gives me that fresh start, The line in the sand to do is on my week ahead. The great Recipes really help me. My chicken breast mince bolognese is now the standard weekly meal for the whole family. It’s sooo good.
Tori600 - Victoria
I really like the app, and being able to scan foods in the supermarket for their points value, but the monthly fee is way, way too much for what you get. I found the meetings very, very helpful but definitely can’t afford the meetings. No meetings and a useful app doesn’t make a weight loss program. I’m a lifetime member since 1972, and an age pensioner, and I struggle to pay the monthly fee. It should cost a lot, lot less! Maybe have an app where you can opt for some features and not others. I’m reviewing my use of the app in relation to the cost.
Gamaranna - search function frustrating
This app is meant to be used to track food. The search function is pretty poor. Even if you have previously located a food and added it to your favourites, then you search for it again is does not show up! .unless all the words, brands, types, match and are in right order. Some basic foods are very hard to find or search for but show up instantly if you scan them.
not show up at all in searches! Would love a better search function where it searches for more than just the first word to match. Please get improve this.
Otherwise, this app has had a few great improvements, I like the connect part and progress features.
Sahbob - Online member
I’m absolutely loving the app. It’s so easy to use and I love that you can simply scan barcodes to see how many points different foods are. I always have my app open when I go shopping to decide whether or not to buy something! I also LOVE the “community” aspect of the app, it’s like a private Instagram for people signed up to weight watchers! It’s very inspiring reading people’s posts and sharing your own. Losing weight is easier with like - minded people around you!! Ps. Also love that it’s NOT a diet, it’s a lifestyle change - 5⭐️!!
RosG55 - I love using the WW app
I have two issues with the app that I find causes some frustration. The first is the variation in the measurements used for food items some are grams some are spoons some are serves I find it frustrating it is not consistent. The second thing is the items added by other uses such as when you scan there are so many errors on theses items and I think if the fields required were more structured ie every item info must be the 100 ml or gram info off the nutrition panel it would be more accurate and not left to the individual user to decide what qty they use.
Jovimum - This app is my go to
The app is like my own coach in my pocket!
It’s saved me on more than one occasion. It’s user friendly , with loads of features, tips, hints, recipes, click to chat options with coaches and a whole community of connectors at your fingertips.
Recipes are easy to find, and most food brands are in the app which makes shopping a breeze as well as loads of restaurants already built in with Smart points attached. Can’t get any better than that! Thank you Weight Watchers for making my life EASY!
Anna Van Dyken (Life Time Member)
ROBLOX4_LIFE12 - Love the app but would love to see....
I would love to see the app add a “daily sum up” like at the end of day you can review how you are feeling that day. Not like a journal just a few sentences that are kept private not shared with the community. For future review like : no walk today due to rain. Or feeling..... I think it would be helpful.
Also I loved in the paper diary you checked off how much water, fruit & veg I would love to have some emojis we can check off each day.
Winter-ELF - Glitches when tracking activity
I absolutely love this app but ever since it got the new update it’s got glitches in it 🙁. It started doubling up on activity tracked and now started adding steps from Apple Health even though I’m no longer with Apple Health as I deactivated as I’m now with Fitbit. So it has put steps up for Fitbit and Apple Health 🙁. Try reaching out for help on the Live Chat and it keeps coming back as an error. These errors need to be fixed as one cannot keep proper track on the activity being done and the proper amount of activity points being earned 🙁
DeeDeeDuck - Not user friendly
This app was terrible years ago so was hesitant about signing up again. I wish I hadn’t. Created a meal yet suddenly it’s put it in as tomorrow’s meal, not sure why it automatically goes to tomorrow when I’m trying to put things in for today.
Also created ‘work snacks’ so I could just put in all the work snacks that I have and figured I would individually delete the food I didn’t eat.. but that’s not an option. It’s very frustrating as I can do that on other food tracking apps I’ve used before. It’s only a few weeks in and I’ve already lost interest in trying to track food
Kel28582 - App good, could have more functionality
The app is useful for keeping track of what you’ve eaten, but I think it could be a lot better if it could be used to plan too. There’s no way to build a meal planner in the app, nor can I create a shopping list. I end up having to “track” my meals a week in advance and use that as my planner, and have to write my shopping list manually. Life would be easier if I could add recipes to a plan and then add them to a shopping list. Also, if I were able to adjust the quantities of the recipes, so I don’t buy and cook for four when I only need to feed two.
Reflexo1 - The absolute best weight loss tool
This app is addictive. I’m so used to tracking my food now or simply scanning it in with the scanner Makes it easy. Without tracking I simply forget those little bits I’ve had. I’ve found using this easier to lose weight than I’ve ever done before. For the first time in my life, I think I might actually make it to goal.. There’s a 24 hour help is you need it or forget how to do something. Tracks exercise, support group, recipes, tips, and much more.
Pete Nank - Love WW but the app is buggy!!
Really loving the Weight Watchers program. I’m losing weight and not missing out. BUT ... the latest version of the app is very buggy and needs some refinement. Recipes can show one set of points and then change when I track them! This has nothing to do with the colour program I’m on either ... I’ll get sent a recipe from my wife and save it, but viewing and tracking display different points. The same goes for when I create the recipe myself. We’re both using the latest version so I’m not really sure why this happens.
I hope it can be sorted out soon because the program really works well and the App should replicate it.
Raydardodge65 - Truly helped me
I was 137 kgs on insulin and health issues. I was very skeptical to spend the money but I did. I’m down to 102kgs NO LONGER ON INSULIN my doctor is over the moon and no longer have a blood pressure problem. My knees don’t hurt anymore. My food choices are made easy and yes every so often I do have the “wrong” take away. It’s not just an app but a teacher that shows you how to eat healthy and make choices. You have nothing to loose but weight.

Turnmari - Weigh To Go
I have been to Weight Watchers a few years back and always struggled with the point system. I mostly just lost my weight by watching what I ate and working out. Club members always talked about the point system and how they loved it and I would sit there and listen and not say anything about my confusion with the points. I joined again two weeks ago, and this time I love using the WW app. I don't have to worry about counting the points as it does it for me. It took me a week to figure it out and watched some UTube videos to help me. I love how I can put in my own receipes, check favorites and there it is. I love how my Garmin sync's and shows my fit points and takes off a few points. I have tried a few of their receipes as well. I am not into the chats but this app makes my life of trying to lose weight a much happier experience.
Mattwick - Weight Watchers
Easy to understand app. Facilitates tracking of food and activities. Can link Fitbit to track movement and award FitPoints. Clear and easy to read
Bravo Sunrise - Friendly
So easy!! Very helpful assistance 24/7,,
Lorchthetorch - WW Rocks!
Great app. Easy to use! A must for keeping on track!
JuliePru - No longer syncs
App used to sync with Fitbit. New app does not.
Roeroe14 - Junk
Why do you have to pay over $69 PER MONTH to use this app?!?! We pay enough for weightwatchers, now this?
Quite a money grab. If I could give it no stars, I would.
The Fitbit app has the same features and it’s all free.
Squirrel000 - Don’t Purchase Through App!
The app charges $70 for one month! If you buy online via WW it is $17 per month. You can sign up online via WW and then still access your account via the app without being so royally ripped off. 🤬🤬🤬
Wminbc - Pounds not Kg
Why does the weigh in with Kilograms...I cannot change it anywhere in the app and just because we live in Canada we do not use Kg!!! Message help and got nothing so frustrating especially when hangry.
Raffela - DO NOT DOWNLOAD
I’ve used WW for years, and they gave me an eating disorder! This is very dangerous, please go see a dietician instead! You don’t need to lose weight in order to be loved!
Bulldoglove2009 - Apps great, New program a huge disappointment
Love the app but the Purple program ( blue or green program) just prior to this one was much better, less restrictive and I lost 60lb. This new program is demotivating, demoralizing and appears to me to be just a way of getting more people to buy WW, citing its more personalized. It offers less choices and you feel like you’re on a diet.
Huge disney fan 1980 - Frustrated...
I’m having a hard time using the app. I was happily signed up
And then one day I tried to log in and was not recognized. I tried changing my password, deleting and reinstalling the app and even tried to just sign up again. But nothing worked!! Very disappointed.
Habs1 - Ww app
Fairly often there are times when the app is down and I am unable to log my daily food intake. When I get back on I’ve forgotten points because it’s probably the next day
Line2012 - Très pratique!
Super complet. Cela facilite bien le suivi.
Felinate - LOVE THE APP
Dixiedancer10 - Weight watchers app
Easy and fun to use !!!:)
Tawdie - I love the new plan and so many zero point foods
make it so much more flexible:
Libdy49 - Tracking made easy
This app makes tracking so easy. ❤️
Juliemarch21 - Ww has saved me :)
Ww, the app, the virtual workshops, all the New of Ww is fantastic!!!! i have lost 119lbs with Ww. More now than all my other attempts. I use the app everyday, faithfully!! I love that Ww is really now a community. I sit in on virtual workshops during my workdays, just as I would a podcast or office meeting. They get me motivated for my day. I prefer this than the 1 per week workshop. So many times, after work, I wouldn’t get myself to an in house workshop because I was too tired. The app keeps me accountable, the people are so inspiring and the coaches are AMAZING!! I must say , I am so grateful that I have a coach from the west, from my home province (Ontario) and one from the East! Plus friends, omg, friends from all over the country! They understand me and I understand them. Thank you Ww for making it New, improved and AMAZING!!! Julie :)

Col gif - Gif
It would be better is the writing was in black not grey! When it is off line it is frustrating! Colleen It would be better if the writing was in black not grey! When it is off line it is frustrating! I love it because I can find out how many points things are easily! It shows me how many points things in the store are with the bar code! It lists the usual foods that I eat for breakfast etc.Great app! Latel I am having to sign in frequently, not sure why this is happening.
LGS426 - Gluten Free
Although I love the WW app, I find there isn’t as much listed for gluten-free products.

Loving the new WW app. Easy to use and intuitive. I see people complaining about the cost, the app is free with your WW membership.
Supersteady - WW Digital a winner.
WW Digital is the most effective on-diet I’ve ever encountered.
Louise691 - Application ww
Depuis que le programme a été mis à jour en janvier 2022, j’ai enfin réussi à perdre les 10 livres contre lesquelles je me battais depuis des années. Merci WW ♥️
Kastle66 - Life changing
Love every part of this app.
Nhillier - Everything and More
This app makes grocery shopping and staying on the plan a breeze. The bar code scanner is used frequently and being to put your own recipe in and WW giving you the point value takes out all the guesswork!!
Suzy-Bakebeans - Review
This app has helped me immensely. It has helped me when I am doing great and it has gotten me back on track when I’m away for a bit..
ShelliMcF - It is Great
Very helpful with food tracking. Links with my Fitbit!!!
Din-bin - App
I find the app very helpful to try and stay on track !! I have tried many times before and gave up !! I find this time the program helps me be accountable to myself And don’t feel so angry at myself if I have a slow week or two— I hope this time I can stay positive and keep on trucking 🙂
Pawka - Keeps me on track
The only way I can lose weight is to be accountable and this is the secret of my success. Lost 40 lbs in 6 months. Now on maintenance.
YoDaTeN10 - Measurements
Please add an option to include your bodies measurements. They are just as important as the weight loss.
Pacha0902 - J’adore l’application WW!
Je fais mon suivi depuis 3 mois et je récolte des points bleus!!!
Perryj08 - WW APP
Good Morning. The WW app has made me accountable for my actions. Actions of putting fork or drink to my mouth. It is not the best user friendly I.e. it is hard to find details on the ‘group’ I am in - blue. I do use the app every day.
Johnswoman - They make it so easy…
I joined the app in January, 2022. I have lost over 55lbs, and kept it off since May. I found the program to be very easy once I got the hang of it. It did take a few days and I read all the articles that come with it. I am never hungry because I have so many zero point food choices. I enjoy the support of the connect page, and hope that the new plan is as good as this one. I wouldn’t have changed a thing personally…
Lexildy - App
The App. is pretty easy to navigate for me, a Senior! It is handy to have, easy to use & I’m so glad I have the WW App and the support provided!
🎃😊70 - 5 Stars!!!
The best app ever.I use it everyday:)
Yuluac - Review
The app allows me to enter food whenever I have a minute and not have to start my computer. I am trying not to spend too much time on the computer. I really appreciate the barcode scanner on the site. The app helps me to record food intake more faithfully.
All of the above still applies‼️😀 Thanks
Diane des - Great app
Easy to follow
Notsofitmama1 - Love it
Delicious recipes and such a wonderful community of support.
Zack1949 - WW app is Informative & Educational
Used applying due diligence, failure is not an option.
Jimmy moo moo - Life Saver -
I love the app - I can't consistently attend meetings but the app lets me track , weigh in and connect with others no matter where I am.
