This page will give you an overview of the changes and innovations in the app - the latest additions are at the beginning of the list:
Nutrition & Sleep
With Nutrition & Sleep you get actionable insights into how your sleep can influence your dietary choices and vice versa. Read more about it here.
Life Score design change
As you may have noticed, we recently refreshed the look of the Life Score - to make it much easier to understand your current score as well as the changes that happen week over week.
As part of the update, we also upgraded the algorithm that calculates the score. We wanted to make sure we're including all the right data in the calculation and that we're following the latest nutritional guidance by the experts. So, you might notice a difference from the last score you received.
The Hormonal Balance includes a 21-day Meal Plan and shopping list that will help you reach your goal. In this plan, you get four pre-planned meals per day, breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack. As guidance, you get recipes that you can follow strictly or use only as inspiration. Make all the tweaks you want to fit your own dietary needs!
The new Meal Plan is available for all goals (lose, maintain, gain) and markets. Please find more information here

We all care about our health and the environment. The Climatarian Diet enables you to take care of both! This diet carries dual benefits, not only for you, who will enjoy a healthier diet but also for the planet as a whole since the climate impact of food production will be reduced.
The new Diet is available for all goals (lose, maintain, gain) and markets. Please find more information here
We have finally launched our own take on the highly requested 16:8 diet and have just launched two options for it in the app. You find the meal plan in the DIETS section of the app.
Currently, it has been fully launched on iOS but being rolled out on Android.

Macro quick-tracking (custom calories)
We heard you again: now you can also quick-track your macros and not just kcal and food title!
You find the option on both Android and iOS in the tracking view next to the search field under the three little dots:
https://lifesum.com - Google login
We heard you: now you can also log in on our website using Google login!
We have started the import of many fresh new food items to our database including barcodes. The work has only just started and is ongoing - so far we have been able to add tens of thousands of new items to the categories "Cheeses" and "Ready Meals" - and this is just the beginning :)
Android Recent update
We have improved the logic of the Recent tracking section again - please find more details here
Improved barcode scanner with additional functionality
We have improved the overall performance of the scanner both on iOS and Android:
- faster scanning
- option to switch the flash on/off in the scanner window
- if the scanner is unable to recognize a code you can now manually enter the code! That mean that missing light, wrong camera focus or an incomplete barcode is no longer a problem > you can now manually enter the code in numbers
- as requested by many the barcode beeping sound is now history :)
Easier contact option in order to get in touch with support directly through the app
The quickest and best way to get in touch with support is to contact us directly through the app - in that case we immediately get all necessary information about the app version you are using etc.
New independent Apple watch app
The new watch app let's you freely track water and is now also working without having to use the phone app at the same time. Please find more details here

New iOS Widget
We have just unveiled a new widget for the Apple iOS 14 launch, becoming the first digital health app to create and launch a health widget for the iPhone. The Lifesum widget allows you to easily see your daily health progress, allowing you to track your goals and daily nutrients without going into the app.
