I wonder if those of use with an older version that is paid for can get the new version for free, or if it needs to be upgraded for $$? I emailed them once about some sort of enhancement, but I don't remember what it was, anymore. I should rummage through my email to see what it was....I remember the food logs seemed to be better on the downloaded one, and you could add custom activities and modify existing ones from the base calories burned, etc.
***Thats what it was-the ability to sync it with other versions running on PC. The food DB and feature set on the online one was different than the full version, and there wasn't a way to take entered measurements from somewhere 'else' and get them back to my computer at home so Id have different versions running all the time. You had to find the back up file and thumbdrive it around and make sure it was in sync, and that only worked if you had it installed on multiple computers, which is a violation of the TOS and licensing. You could use Online, or local version, but to use both you had to keep them in sync manually.
****Nope, the downloadable version is still Ver 1, so if you paid for it, your still using the old version, even if you download it again. Ill have to email the mods and see if I get a response Ill ask about persistant cookies, too. Ive used it for a couple of years-I wonder how many people used it online vs. paying. My old account file online was ported over to the new interface, though. That's cool.
