App is fine; complaints miss point

:
This app does exactly what it's advertised to do - calculate BMI. Those complaining that it's inaccurate or doesn't factor age miss the point. BMI is a set formula defined as weight divided by the square of height in inches. The scale defining whether you're overweight or not is also set. So if the app tells you you're obese, don't blame the app. The app is just running a predefined equation and putting the result onto a predefined scale. It's like downloading an app that calculates batting average and then complaining that the app is inaccurate because it doesn't factor in homeruns and RBIs.

4/5 stars

Age?

:
Well it's great, except the fact that age plays a vital role as well. This needs to be added.

0/5 stars

Worthless

:
This app is very inaccurate because all it takes in account is your weight and height and leaves out your sex, age, and body type
