i find these calorie counters to un-flexible and tasking to use. I really gave them a chance, but couldn't do it.

Is that a 12 foot pizza?

Yep. But you can only have one slice.

I wanted to like Calorie Tracker, but Livescape has a faster and more polished UI. Livescape also has better exercise data, but Calorie Tracker edges out a win on graphing.One thing I've noticed about all of these kinds of apps: it pays to double-check the nutrition data that is downloaded. It is surprising how often the data for even common foods is outright wrong. I tend to enter the data manually, so I don't have to wonder.Much as I prefer Livescape over Calorie Tracker, I'm going to keep the later installed for the time being.

Livescape is definitely worth checking out. It's not free like Calorie Tracker, but once you look at the trial it's simple to see it's worth the price. There have been updates and major features added over the last few months. Nice design and reliable. I actually like the graphing in Livescape better than Calorie Tracker, maybe because it tracks more. The graphing has slowly been getting better. The biggest advantage that Calorie Tracker has over Livescape is that you can enter data on the web, and though that is pretty cool, I don't really need that feature so much.
