Perfect Diet Tracker App ?

Anyone use this app? I need to start counting calories again. This is something I absolutely HATE to do. Maybe an app would make it a bit easier.

Personally, I'm a big fan of LoseIt for the iPhone. I use it to track both food and exercise. It's very simple to use and I find it to be very effective.

I've tried several. This one is far and away the best. Haven't found a food yet that isn't in their database.

I works on my Android Phone and on the Computer plus allows me the neat little ticker you see in my sig.

It also lets me track more than calories. Hence, I know that I am heavier this morning, even after a 31 mile ride yesterday because I was over on sodium by almost 4,000mg! BTW, the ticker shows where I am going but FWIW I have lost 126lbs since December 23, 2010 and started using MFP in February of 2011.

+1 but I only use the online version as they don't support WP7 yet (there is an android app though).
