Great concept. Execution needs work I love the concept and encourage the developer to keep at it. I got timing updates at Space Cost but not live timing for my wife even though we thought we started it. The problem with the app is it's confusing navigation... A mix of top menus, hidden menus, buttons and dialogs. As a fellow software dev I would suggest ...at least on Android...a visit to the material design standards and a rework of the application flow. Fantastic idea but the app just needs work.
Runner Great app.
Runs well (haha) Great app for racers and spectators. Both need to activate the app!! One the runner activates the gps, you can use it for updates and live tracking. Cheer is a great feature where you can send motivational messages over a runner's headphones. Dev - Please amend the feature to break through songs, etc. Otherwise they're too hard for the runner to hear. Also consider adding a voice feature to record your own 5 sec audio. Thank you, highly recommend!
Just ran my first half marathon and RaceJoy made it great! My family loved being able to track me throughout the rout and were able to be there to cheer for me at 4 different locations. I loved the updates every mile, especially my average pace and expected finish time. That, and the cheers from my friends and family, really helped keep me stay on track and meet my goal time. What a great experience! Thanks to the race organizers for covering the $.99 for participants and spectators!
17th marathon, 1st time RaceJoy user I downloaded the app for the first time for a race this weekend. I used the progress report, cheers and tracking features for my family. It was great. I had no technical issues and I could leave my phone in the back of my belt pouch and still hear the updates and the cheers come through. This is a great tool. And the cheer feature would be awesome on courses where it is hard for spectators to get around or if you are at a race solo.
The cheers really helped us make it through the last tough miles! I love that friends & family can track you even if they can't be there physically.
