Cumbersome and not well executed The concept behind the app is sound, but it is not put together very well. I purchased the full version right away, but was still prompted to buy the full version constantly. My wife was unable to track my progress even though she purchased the app. The cheers that I sent out either took a long time to send, or failed to arrive. I'm sure that some of this may be user error, but the creator of this app could do a lot to make it more intuitive and user friendly.
Very helpful app My husband was able to track myself and other family members during our marathon. It alerted him when each of us crossed mile markers. It also gave him our average pace so he could estimate our arrival at the finish line. We got the free app and it was perfectly fine.
PhoneTrak with Timing Progress Alerts! Tracked several at Ogden Marathon, the live actual course map tracking is awesome with the cowbell notifications as they crossed timing points. Tracking worked well over later canyon mountain pass.
Misery incarnate All I wanted to do was see how close my spouse was to the finish line. Instead, it took a bunch of personal info and still wouldn't let me see her progress because she had not also registered. This app is a huge step back!
No good UPDATE TO DEVELOPER: whether the participant paid for the app or not, should have no bearing on getting a black notification and the app telling me it hasn't received my payment.
Can't send cheer Registered but still can send cheer. And tracking is pretty lame in the fashion that it is set. However, I am enjoying the updates.
This release provides GPS-based Timing Progress Alerts for PhoneTrak events! The alerts are supported as push notifications, facebook and twitter postings. Updated cheers are also included.
