Great Idea, but Technical Flaws I 've been using Charity Miles for a while, and every time I update it, it doesn't work the way it used to. During the last update, I lost the ability to use the Pedometer function, which stinks when you want to run indoors on a treadmill. The app keeps trying to force me to turn my GPS on, even though I am indoors and it won't work. I love the idea of doing good while logging miles, but little things like this make the effort not worth it sometimes. Too bad.
I love this app! I can't express how awesome an idea this is! I'm so glad this app exists. It's such an easy way to make a difference and support a variety of charities. Absolutely love it and no problems so far! Although it would be nice to be able to sync a playlist within the app, but it's no big deal to use another app :)
New upload I've had this app since May and never had a problem. This new update does not allow me to track indoors w/out gps because it doesn't need it. Also, outdoors w/ gps... STILL DOESN'T WORK! Over 10 miles unaccounted for.
This is one of the flakiest apps ever. It seems that with each update it gets buggier rather than more stable. Right now it works reliably only after I clear the cache and restart my phone. The next time I walk without doing this it is hit or miss, with more misses than hits (it will record zero miles and then ask me when I try to close the app whether I want to do so having only walked a couple of steps when I have walked 2-3 miles. I like raising money for good charities and I walk every day but it's a drag to keep remembering to clear the cache and restart the phone.
Great idea, but a little buggy still This app is a great idea! I would use it more but it constantly opens to my last workout and says the data wasn't saved, even though my phone and this app are up to date. I look forward to future versions!
Great idea but buggy It doesn't log the distance correctly. After I have walked for around 3-5 miles, it shows less distance logged (Sometimes even 0 miles). I guess the problem is when the app is in background. Please do resolve it, coz its frustrating at times. We all do it for raising money for charity, but it seems its not happening. Apart from the bug, its a great idea.
