Review from Bob Hoffman
Worthless. I should have read ALL the reviews before installing instead of just the ones that come up by default. Apparently I am not the only one who has trouble getting this app to count steps properly. My educated guess is that it is trying to use the GPS and when indoors or using a treadmill that's not going to work.
I have lost 200 lbs since 2012 using NOOM. I am in a long life battle with weight balance. This is the only program that has ever 'stuck'. It's manageability and freedom gives me the power to understand better how to make consistently make good choices, or to immediately get back on track of a day is not perfect. It's about flexibility and not self-abuse! Living and loving my NOOM life!
Good but too many ads App is good & useful but my phone is now flooded with ads. They just keep popping every time any other app is opened or internet turned on. Otherwise app helps in tracking food & exercise habits. One point to be checked: whether the steps to walk is calculated correctly based on current weight & proposed weight plans submitted...I got a feeling otherwise. Rating would have been much more if it were not for the flood of ads. Agreed this is the free version but other free apps didn't have such an impact.
I was looking for an app that was good for counting steps on the treadmill. Had my phone in my pocket and it did not work. If there's a better way to do this, let me know, but I just walked for 40 minutes and not a single step was counted. I had my phone in my pocket prior and it counted 200 steps around my house but nothing on the treadmill. App does not meet my needs, so unless I should modify how I'm spending my treadmill time, then this will be just another non-working, overly talked up app that gets deleted from my phone.
The pedometer does not work properly. As soon as the screen turns off, the step counting stops. It's only on when the screen is on. Keeping in the pocket doesn't count steps. I have to keep it in my hand to keep counting. Should ask for calibration before starting so that accuracy is developed. I shake my hand it counts steps and when I actually walk it doesn't. Noom coach itself is so good but this pedometer is dsappointing.
This used to be a very accurate tool regarding steps taken, however, over recent days I have become aware of its inability to keep an accurate track of steps taken. Unfortunately, the level of accuracy varies from recording every other step to every third step leaving me with no idea as to the level of activity achieved. I will now have to go out and buy a pedometer, pity, I will miss the ease and convenience that this app used to provide
Walking ap. I love it. I give it an A plus. It keeps track of all my steps that I take. It saddens me to think that I didn't record any of my previous step count to see if there were any progress. Oh well! That was my fault. However, from here on out, I will keep track of it all I am in need of losing weight and this will help me to do just that.
Bug fixes and usability enhancements.
