Tracker App vs. Atkins website

Hello, everyone!
I've noticed that the food tracking app I use has some VERY different carb counts in things like avacado and spaghetti squash than the Atkins website uses.
Anyone else noticed this? Do you continue trusting your tracking app or the Atkins site?
Help!

If I have a question, I use the USDA site here. NDL/FNIC Food Composition Database Home Page

There are a couple of different types of avocado with different carb counts, so one may be using hass, and one may be using the other, for example.

I just bookmarked the USDA site, Ntombi. Thanks!
My tracker (I believe it's a pretty popular app on LCF) seemed to have varying counts on hass avacados. Perhaps it has something to do with the user submitted counts? Anywho, I'll refer to the USDA when needed; just makes it a bit difficult when trying to quickly track every day.
