New! WW Barcode Scanner

No more excuses for tracking! WW has released a new app that allows you to scan your foods and it auto-tracks to your food tracker. How cool! You can now walk around the grocery store, scanning and comparing your Points Plus Values with all kinds of foods.

Here's how it works: I think Jennifer from "It Sux To Be Fat" Explains it best: All you have to do is be an e-tools subscriber or an online member and it links with your e-tools so they can “talk!”  Here’s how it works:
  • Download the app from the app store.
  • Put in your e-tools subscriber information.
  • Load the app and automatically the barcode scanner pops up.  You can either scan the barcode off the product you are looking at or you can enter the barcode manually.  There is even a light button in case you are somewhere dark.
  • It will vibrate to let you know the scan took and then it will either give you a “Cha-ching” to let you know the product is in their database or it will tell you the product was not found and ask if you want to go to the calculator or continue scanning.
  • If the product is found successfully, it will pop up in the bottom of your screen.
  • Click on the product and it gives you all the information you need including serving size and how many points plus it is.
  • Then, just click add to tracker and keep on scanning.
  • When you finish, load the regular Weight Watchers app and all the items you scanned will be in your tracker already.
The app can also be used offline to compare previously scanned items, access your personal shopping history and utilize the PointsPlus calculator. The app is available for iOS and Android devices.
Weight watchers just simplified our lives for food tracking in every way possible.  Give it a try!

Get it for free in iTunes Store
