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).
Location I just updated the app. And now location has to be turned on in order to sync the Fitbit with the app. I hate this new update. I do not like the location toggle turn on. Not to mention that the Fitbit Charger has build issues. The band should last longer than 6 month. Before the update,it was okay. I've had a few issues with syncing. Or the Fitbit registering steps and stairs that I did not do. There should be a way to subtract false data. Example: my Fitbit tracked 20 flights of stairs. I have 2 at home.
Multiple Notifications Ever since the new updates, my fitbit has been acting up. I get multiple Notifications for a single text message. I get it up to 4 times. The phone calls I hardly ever do. All of this is causing my fitbit battery to die a lot faster than before. So now so that I don't have to keep charging my fitbit every other day, I've turn my notification off. I don't if it's the app or my fitbit at this point.
CANT SYNC TO MY GALAXY ALPHA SINCE LAST UPDATE Really disappointed that I cant sync my Fitbit Flex to my samsung galaxy alpha OR my ipad mini 2. Ive reinstalled the app, charged battery, reset bluetooth & location and its still not working. Ive even stopped all other bluetooth devices in proximity so theres no interception. Please sort this out ASAP!!
Looks like I'm not only one complaining , they have a 3.9 rating Fitbit for this app on June 15, 2016 , Nike has a much better rating than Fitbit that's sad and Fitbit supposed to be the leader? Apple version is much better than the Android. Takes way too long to sync, this just the same problems most people are having if that's not bad enough with the syncing which drains a lot battery. Please improve the quality of the interface for Android. Apple interface is so much better.
Lacks essential features and has weird bugs Only one alarm can be set. And no smart alarms. Sleep tracking overall is unreliable. Sync takes forever (even with all the connection options enabled) and dashboard does not show you sleep info until you restart the app and tap in random places. Steps/floors tracking have some random glitches, especially if you use escalators (once I supposedly walked 60 floors at an airport). Bottom line: trackers are mostly good but app doesn't match the quality. Will get something else, maybe androidwear-based next time
No Longer Works with Nexus5X As also reported by other users, the latest update no longer works with the Nexus5X selected as the device for basic fitness tracking. Hope to revise this review if this change is corrected/reverted.
