I love being able to raise money for charity with this app! The number of miles you actually log depends on your phone. Outdoor is always accurate for me on my LG phones, but indoor mode is overly generous on my new Android (more money for charity!). The thing I like least is that I am required to have my location on in order to use CM on Indoor Mode.
FIX YOUR GPS Used to work great, now it doesn't track anything if I turn the screen lock on. Didn't have this problem before the last update. Please fix it, I just ran a 5k and it logged me at 0.00 miles at the end. Sorry Wounded Warrior, guess you're not getting the money today. Please fix it, I love what this app does and it's always such a shame when that happens. (never have that issue with woof Trax) ORIGINAL REVIEW I love being able to track my dog walks and bike rides on here, and it works for a good cause. And on top of it all, it keeps your profile and shows you money raised by users.
One suggestion. Fitness Trackers.. I just downloaded the app not even five minutes ago.. I just signed up about five seconds ago. Did you know that fitness Trackers have taken the world by storm? I know. Not everyone has one, keep the GPS option in place. BUT add the ability to add a fitness tracker, PLEASE. I have used a rewards app, that was ultimately very bad itself. That had the capability to use a fitness tracker.. I go so many places where I do not have my phone, but I have my Fitbit. It would be so helpful!!!
Feelgood factor is good knowing you are helping by exercising. Would like to see charities relevant to country of participant and option to auto sync activities with my Strava account as I use my GPS watch so I don't have to carry my phone. Sometimes forget too with all the things to set going before a run!
Great app for a cause. It even runs in the background if you were to do 2 different running apps at the same time (I did charity miles, Spotify, and mapmyrun all simultaneously). The only complaint I have is that it doesn't show the total amount of you personally have raised, only the number of miles ran.
Would give it 5 stars if GPS issue is fixed I don't understand why they need to turn on my gps indoors. Also, they should have shown how far I've walked/ran even if it doesn't reach a mile. It would also be better if they show me how much I earned for the charity.
