Noom Weight version 2.0 for iPhone is out! We’re really excited about the new features — so with no more ado, here’s what 2.0 has to offer:
A beautiful redesign. Noom has some new clothes! The interface is clean and looks gorgeous on iOS 7, and Noom is rockin’ some purple. Check out the awesome new dashboards on the main screen by swiping left or right.
Introducing Noom Pro. You asked, we answered. Use all of our food, exercise, and weight tracking features for free, or upgrade to Pro for intelligent feedback and reliable motivation. If you bought Pro on your Android, you should be Pro automatically on your iPhone — just create an account using the gmail address you use on your Android phone. If you’re having trouble with accessing your Pro membership, feel free to contact email@example.com.
Join a Noom Group. Committing to a weight loss program is hard enough on day 1, and that donut can seem irresistible by day 5. That’s why we created Noom Groups: go Pro to join a group of other Noomers who’ll help motivate you.
The brand new Mealtime dashboard lets you see who’s already logged their food, allowing you to high-five rockstar loggers and help the slackers (we say it with love!) with a reminder to log. Use the chat to discuss weight loss strategies, share recipes, or just tell your story. You’ll also get a weekly article from Noom to inspire you with new ideas.
Better feedback. When Noom team members tracked our own food, we were frustrated by the criticism we received from Noom Weight. After all, you don’t need Noom to remind you that eating that slice of cake wasn’t a great idea. Noom’s new meal feedback emphasizes positivity, relying on scientific research demonstrating that people who log everything they eat lose weight, even if they’re not trying to change their diet.
To support this concept, we’ve added a new meal logging streak; this is the number of meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) you’ve logged in a row. Research shows that as this number goes up, your weight should go down!
The Noom Weight team is really proud of our work, but nobody’s perfect. We’ve received some really great feedback from you guys about the iPhone app, so thanks! I’ll address a few of the concerns we’ve heard:
Why is Noom Weight so different from the Android app?
Noom Weight Loss Coach for Android is a great app with a lot of awesome features. The iPhone is a new ballgame, however, and we wanted to start with Noom basics: quick, easy food logging and intelligent coaching. Noom Weight may have started small, but we’ve got big plans for it — we want it to be the best weight loss app you’ve ever used.
For those of you who love the Android version, sit tight. We work very closely with the Android team, so you can expect the greatest hits of Noom to appear on your iPhone soon.
In the short term, iPhone 5S owners will love the integrated pedometer that works with the M7 motion sensing technology in your phone. See how your daily activity affects your calorie budget and get exercise credit for walking the dog, shopping, and cleaning the house — all automatically! We’ll also be working out some kinks in the Noom experience to make everything as seamless and beautiful as possible for the new year.
In the long term, we’ll be working closely with the Android team to improve the motivational aspects of the app. We’ve got some great stuff in the works, but would love to hear your ideas too — check out our feedback page to leave us suggestions. You can also use this form to sign up to be a beta tester for the brand new features.
Hopefully this helps you get an idea of what we’ve been working on. We’d love to hear what you think, so feel free to reach out any time through social media or our noom.com/support.
Finally, thanks a lot for using Noom! We get our inspiration and motivation from our users, whether hearing a fabulous weight loss story or reading your honest and insightful feedback. You guys are great!
Until next time,
