Decent It's a decent app but there are some things that need improvement. For one I would like to be able to add favorites and have them sync across multiple devices. Secondly when a new notification comes in, it covers up part of the search screen, & I can't search for a competitor without first reading the notification. EDIT: very fast response time on the part of the developers, so I'm upping to 4 stars. Clearly they are listening.
Worked GREAT... When it worked... During the swim and into the first phase of the bike, the app loaded all the stats fine but then halfway into the bike and the whole run- it wouldn't load or refresh my competitors stats. I really liked the GPS component - where you can see physically where they are on the course... But then it stopped loading, at crucial points in the race. Even with its flaws, I'll still use it to track future competitors.
I just paid R144 for an app that's not working! It's not tracking the athletes and that's what's its supposed to be doing! I received texts saying that the people I'm following are already on the bike but according to this app, they haven't even started. You better fix this otherwise I want my money back.
I was using the free app to follow an athlete. Was required to buy this app to continue tracking for the whole ironman race. So I reluctantly purchased it. Unfortunately, the athlete got hurt during the race and was unable to finish. I did not know this because somehow the app was tracking this athlete even though he was not on the course. I was waiting to see him cross the finish line. He did not. According to this app though he did. Interested in how he was being tracked when not running.
Very good tracking app This app is very good. It is not a live tracker!! It makes guesses to help you anticipate your athlete. This app gets time data from IM and makes guesses for you, and it does it pretty well! IM timing chip does not provide live GPS positioning. If you want that, go rent a Beacon (feature request: integrate 3rd party location to map! [If available]). It is a little pricey, but the dev does allow family sharing.
My advice is dont bother paying to upgrade as I did. I expected to be able to keep track of competitors. It was miles out. I should have saved my money and used free version. Oh and before admin says I was using free app by mistake. Not so I deleted it first.
