About six months ago, I was standing in line to be weighed at my Weight Watchers meeting and a fellow buddy and I were talking about the WW app for our iPhones.
I made the statement that what would be REALLY cool is if you could scan the bar codes on the products and WW would automatically calculate the points.
Obviously, I don't think that WW is bugging their weigh in lines, but they created the app that I was talking about!
Here's what I know about the app:
1) First of all, it's a separate app. You have to download it separately. All of the people in my meeting didn't know. I suspect that has everything to do with the fact that the average person in my meeting is at an age where smart phones aren't exactly "their thing."
Also, if you ever wondered what my keyboard at work looks like, now you know. See? I'm a giver.
3) I wish that it was an upgrade to the current WW app and not a separate one. First, you have to log in every time you use it (the app remembers your user name and password so this isn't a huge deal), but it's just weird that you have to switch back and forth between this app and the regular app to see all of your stuff.
Overall, I'm thrilled with this app and I'm glad that Weight Watchers is striving to make their already award-winning program easier to use.
