Needs updating I used to use this app religiously and loved the community and workout log. However, after using a few different apps, I've come back to it as I'm gearing back up in the gym. I've noticed a few things. 1- The available exercises, which were being added to before so I didn't complain, still aren't as extensive as other apps. 2- The community seems to have shrunk. The whole draw to it was getting props & having active groups to motivate each other. 3- It hasn't been updated on Android significantly.
I logged a workout, and was surprised to get "props" (thumbs-up) from other users. What?? It's public?? And worse, it had automatically "posted" to its network with my email name (before the "@"). I hadn't read anywhere that social participation was mandatory. I was looking for an app just to keep a log for myself, so this is definitely not it. And I couldn't find a way to delete my account from the app, and had to go to the website.
Does not load properly on android My profile doesn't load--only shows a spinning circle, i can't view groups I've been added to or click on ppl who added me. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Glitchy when trying to figure out adding workouts as well.
I had previously given this app 4 stars, but It's in need of some updating / maintenance. The app crashes every time you try to use the function that allows you to add additional information to a particular exercise (e. g., assistance or additional resistance on dips). I've reported this numerous times in the past couple months, but there's been no response or fix.
Great idea but slow and buggy The idea behind Fitocracy is great: use gamification to motivate you to workout. You can level up, do quests, and see how you compare to others. The selection of workouts are good and the point system gives you a good idea of how you're progressing. However, I have found the app buggy and slow. For example, I must restart the app almost everyday because the current date is incorrect. I will continue using this app because of its concept, but the Fitocracy website is much better than the app.
App itself great, functionality not so much I've been using this on and off for a few weeks. The app itself is fine, doesn't crash or glitch on me. My issue is the functionality and decision making of the design. It seriously lacks logical flow and things I would think be in one place are actually in a completely different one. Example: Naming my workouts is a workout by itself. To me this should be a choice within the workout, not a separate step tucked away in a corner menu. Took me a while to figure it out and I use lots of different apps.
