The challenges/medals seem okay but the app is awful. Slow, unreliable connection, you have to manually enter everything and upload a jpeg for proof as it doesn't tie in to other fitness trackers, and then the percentages don't tally up with your actual miles recorded. Did 100miles of a 100mile challenge and entered it manually for the app to say said I'd completed 99.99%. There are superior virtual challenge apps out there and for the price of the medals, I'd expect a better app from MedalMad.

Sorry you had problems uploading the evidence. We have designed it to be a simple as possible to make it as inclusive as we can.
Love the idea of this site. The app is okay but very misleading in terms of tracking. Makes it sound like there is a walking/running tracker you can use as part of the app. Also show a picture of a map with a route on it. Innocently asked customer service how to turn the gps tracking on to be told there is no tracking for the walks/runs. You can track percentage of progress but not with maps.

Hi, sorry for this issue. We do state you can track your progress as you submit evidence such as receiving progress updates, live leaderboards, track friends progress, access milestones etc but we have not stated that there is any GPS tracker in the app. We will look at our wording to make sure this is clearer in the future. Best wishes MedalMad
Medals good quality. Easy to submit screenshot of your own tracker or just add steps. Shows overall progress towards total. Issues: 1st challenge didn't record my completion, and points weren't added, had to get c/services to do both. 2nd medal got to 69.3 miles (target 70) and it's automatically completed me (really annoying). No way of checking what evidence you've submitted, not even using C/Services. Opening screen is newsfeed, would be much better to go straight to current challenge.
