Review from Kenny Moore
Working on Galaxy SIII Was already getting a little tired of syncing via the dongle and heard this was around the corner. Downloaded it last night and have had no issues so far. The only major feature that was missing is now there. Like others have stated...the fitbit food portion is a bit limited, but if you use myfitnesspal as your hub, everything will sync together (currently using food at myfitnesspal, steps at fitbit, and cardio activities through runtastic).
Fitbit (Android) Put simply I cannot believe that one of the market leaders in wearable fitness products cannot provide a stable app which is compatible or indeed updates with any Android devices. It is beyond frustrating! I'm currently left with a Fitbit charge which is basically now a watch as it consistently fails to update any data and is incompatible with the app. I've tried all of the fixes. Very poor. Would expect better. When is this major issue likely to be fixed? If you don't have a desktop computer u r stuck.
Tracker not found Will not sync my Surge to my S5. Have updated and still will not sync. Don't have any other way to sync at the moment too so very frustrating almost makes me wonder why I bother with fitbit
Good app Good app. Great product. Would love to see more food selections in the food tracker or be able to easily add new ones. Tad clunky now.
Not syncing I have been trying to sync my zip since last night and the app just keeps saying "device not found". It is getting annoying since I am in a challenge but can't update my status
So many things don't quite work Since the last update your goal weight doesn't show up. Food tracking does not accurately keep track of recent and frequent foods after the first week or so. Many other small annoying bugs this app needs a lot of work. Use the website for accurate information and tracking. It's a shame because the entire system is really good but is let down by an annoying and buggy app.
It used to be good But since the update it constantly says i am over budget, even when I've eaten only 400 calories, has trouble syncing and can never find my tracker, and won't let me enter my goal weight anymore. Using a fitbit zip.
- Fix for "additional Actions required" notification spam
- Fix for users wanting notifications turned off
- Fix for Some mobile runs not saving properly
*NOTE: you may be asked to restart your phone, and perform additional actions to complete notifications setup if you already have Fitbit device notifications setup.
