I’ve been a user of DietController for many years, back when it was still a multiplatform, Java-based app. I’ve liked this app for its rather easy-to-grasp interface and the ease with which one could add or modify existing products, in my case in order to adapt the database to European products (the entire included database is based on American products, so very little use here).
Now, I’ve noticed a very annoying problem: either the product is dead and development has stopped, or there is something dramatic in the pipes. Either way, my last two requests for support have been completely ignored by Margaret Dangerfield. To the point that I didn’t even receive an acknowlegement for my messages, contrary to what is stated at the website. Also the latest update here dates back from the beginning of 2013, so 2 whole years without an update…
Okey, things happen and well, a dead product is a dead product. Yet, somebody’s still taking the money, so there is someone at the other end of this pipe.
My real question though is: how future-proof is this soft at this point? I can testify that it works on the current public beta (ß6) of El Capitan, but it’s difficult to say if it will in the Golden Master, or in the next update.
As a result, my advice is: stand clear of a product that might not work in a couple of months.
My rating of 2.5 is a translation of my appreciation for the product, and of my disappointment at the entire lack of support.

I am really growing to like this one. I think I'm going to purchase it when the trial period ends. But I wish it could track water intake easier.

Following up: I've been using this for over 6 months. It has really helped me meet my daily nutrition. In turn that has resulted in much, much better health, immune systems and less reliance on supplements. The exercise section has been extremely helpful as well. I hope they keep it updated. The current price of $4.99 is a steal. I wish I got it at that price. But it's still worth it at a higher price. Beats all the other programs I tried. I would like a glycemic load statistic, however.

One year later, still using this INVALUABLE program for my nutrition and fitness tracking. I really, really hope the developers include Vitamin K and omega-3 and omega-6 tracking along with all the other categories in the future.
