Zero v3.0

Fasting made simple

3.6/5
About

We're the world's largest fasting community for iOS and Apple Watch. Version 3.0 is available now, completely redesigned to help you on your fasting journey.

Would you recommend this product?
Data, Ruby, Apple.

I've used Zero for over a year and I loved it as a quick fasting tracker. It was simple and worked well. Now 3.0 has landed and I cannot use the app anymore without signing up for an account. I don't want an account, I don't want to be email spammed (it's in the privacy policy), I don't want to be part of a fasting community. Zero was great because it was simple. Now it's not. The developers state they added the account because people would lose their data. It's an iOS app, use CloudKit. I'd much rather pay a few bucks for Zero than have this new monetized version that is using my data for marketing.

Pros:

Good info, Apple Watch complication

Cons:

Requires account now

@tamalw Totally agree with you. CloudKit could indeed be the solution, but they didn't

Beautiful and functional app.

Pros:

I have been using this for a while and the new release looks awesome

Cons:

Little too early for any cons, but I didn't find any before so I doubt I will now

Great app. It has helped me a lot with the fasting. v3 looks amazing. Do you think the apple watch might be able to detect the fasting state in the future?

Pros:

Love this app.

Cons:

Nothing major. Keep forgetting to click the end fast so some days it goes longer than what my real fasting hours.

CEO of Zero Fasting
Thanks for the feedback Niraj and glad you're liking 3.0 so far! We are always looking for ways to help automate the sensing of a fasted state. Nothing we see yet but it will be amazing when that type of sensor exists.

I use it daily to track my fasts. At first, I didn't have the reflex to use it but after a few days, it became automatic. Now I'm excited to see my progress and it motivates me to keep going.

Pros:

Easy to use, nicely designed.

Cons:

None I can think of.

I think it's completely unnecessary and superfluous app. We don't need an app for everything. If you're going to fast - just do it. It's as simple as that.

Pros:

UX is good.

Cons:

Don't see the use.

Been using 2.0 for over a year and have absolutely loved it even before this update. While the previous build was simple and useful it was lacking in features​ but was also free so it was understandable. This update fills in any gaps I had before while still maintaining the insane FREE price tag. Thank you, Kevin Rose, for not capitalizing off the wellness of human beings with your suite of apps like Zero and Oak.

Pros:

FREE! Well thought through, and purposeful design. No other tool available at this caliber and "cost".

Cons:

None.

Thanks for a Zero has been a great app from the start, the added features will be a great way to keep up with the fasting and learn some new things along the way.

Pros:

Beautiful upgrade with a ton of extra functionality

Cons:

Don't make me create an account right away. I really wanted to kick the tires on the new app before turning over my email address.

Easy to use, very useful for tracking day to day, and a great resource for info. Perfect app to stay on track with my health goals!

Pros:

Love the new fasting content and ability to track my stats

Cons:

None

Way too basic compared to others out there like LifeOmic's LIFE

Pros:

Simple

Cons:

Too little functionality

Love the new version!

Pros:

So easy to use. It isn’t overloaded with too many distracting features. I love the ritual of starting my timer once my fast starts.

Cons:

Only thing I don’t like is not being able to adj my fast type from 16:8 to 20:4 while the timer is running.

Head of Product @ Freeletics

Used off and on for the past two years, but finally committed to daily 16 hour fasts in December. This completely changed my day to day life (in addition to switching from coffee to tea and cutting most processed foods from diet).

Pros:

Great update to an already useful app

Cons:

Many new features– most are cool, but very much appreciate the simplicity of v2 and don't want more features

I've been practicing IF since 2017, most days 12-14 hours, some days 16-18 hours. I'd commit to memory what my last feeding time was every single night so having this app is super helpful! Not to mention the community aspect of togetherness and accountability. Great work @kevinrose @mike_maser! :)
