This application just keeps getting worse. We had already been dealing for a long while with the notification item being permanent for no reason. Then we started being fed hard to close advertisements with little context and no way to opt out. Now the application can never find a GPS signal on its first attempt, even with clear skies, and even when other GPS aware applications have no problem with location awareness. It has gotten to a point that I am questioning whether I still want to use this application, or not.
GPS issues More often than not, the app can't locate me and I'm unable to log my walks. If it does find me, it tends to day I'm inactive / doesn't detect motion, and I don't realize this until after my walk when I check my phone to end the session. BlackBerry Priv. Update: I recently got a new phone and it did not recognize me as a user so I had to enroll again and even after confirming the validation email it still won't let me into the app so I'm uninstalling it
I always get a message that the GPS can't find my location and that it might not track my walk properly. This has happened every time I've used it. It also has a tendency to time out before I finish my walk, so I'm not getting full credit for the distance I put in.
Sad, awesome idea. Uninstalled. Worthless app, zero customer support. It will not UNSUBSCRIBE, even after hitting UNSUBSCRIBE at least 30 times. NEEDS TO STOP! Total nightmare. Sent several messages requesting help, never received a reply. I made the mistake of using cell # as email, so I am constantly being sent text. NOT COOL. Uninstalled. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE. Run, save yourself!
Great way to donate even when you're broke I've had this app twice on two different carriers and phones. On my sprint network (which generally sucked) it would time out while I was walking. On my new network and new phone I have had no issues. I love that I can track my walks with my dog to present her fitness level to the vet when she's getting too heavy. Most of all I'm glad that I'm able to help feed other animals in need even when I'm not working or not able to donate out of my pay.
Well meant app that could use more talented developers. GPS sampling, running in the background issues, record keeping failures and constant spamming of ads (now with count down timer) on every screen have been consistent gremlins since inception. Probably should be 1 star.
Minor bug fixes. Performance updates and bug fixes. Impact Tab now updates with your walks in just moments.
