I am constantly walking my dogs, so using the app is (so easy!) A no-go brainer. Not only does it have a huge array of charaties to choose from, but it feels good knowing something I'd do anyways is benefitting g even more animals than mine. Bei g able to track where we've walked with the app is also fun and has actually motivated me to explore my own neighborhood way more than I would have on my own. And let's face it, all this walking is good for the dogs, but it's also good for me. Couldn't recommend this app more if I tried.
The biggest problem with the app is that it sometimes stops recording, never records, or resets to 0 and you lose miles your charity should be getting. The latest update didn't fix that. It is easy to use and when it works it's great. My charity is relatively new to the app, so I don't know how it pays out.
I used to use this app everyday walking my dog. Suddenly it records the time walked, but zero distance. It locates me somewhere in the ocean off the west coast of Africa! It has no idea where I am any longer. An email to the designers resulted in nothing back indicating they acknowledge the problem. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it still doesn't work. All my other apps which use GPS work perfectly. Very disappointed. If it begins working again I'll rerate it to 5 stars.
I love the app, but it stops working after a short while most times, so my charity isn't getting all the donation that they're due. My daughter and her husband have the same problem. Hi, Wooftrax, I'm using the most up to date version of the app, and aware that I have to be an active walker for my charity to benefit. Thanks for the response, I'll keep trying. Definitely worth it.
Well meant app that is really just poorly built; 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. Forced ad display hiding close box ridiculous. Donation rules suspect. Rush of new positive reviews in last to weeks seem likely more fake than legitimate.
How do we know support is being received by the the animal shelter that we are supporting by our walks? I love the using the app, which is easy to use. Just need to know more about how the this actually helps the animal shelter.
