This app does have a few bugs but overall it's pretty decent. You can accumulate points and therefore redeemable cash pretty quickly if you commute by bike. So far have managed to get a load of new inner tubes and discount on lights and donate points to charity. Would recommend this app!
The app got stuck on flash loading screen while walking once so I had to reinstall, since then none of my journeys were being recorded. I could see my old walks. Then after 4 walks it prompted me to log in. All 4 walks lost!
Worst GPS tracking, 3 trys, 3 fails. Blithely draws a straight line and assumes you flew. If it does decide to work, it turns off tracking after a minute or so, leaving your icon stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Just downloaded this app as I walk 6 miles each day so thought why not benefit from it and get bus tickets! So far it has only tracked and rewarded half of my activities this weekend. If this does this each day then I will be missing out on loads of points! Not a very good start! I've got it set on background tracking and I also use a different Sony app to track my miles per day which works fine. UPDATE: Ok so I read the help section and marked this app as 'not optimised' in my battery settings on my phone and so far it has tracked all of my walks since so it was user error not app error! Thank you for a great app!
I cycle approximately 20km a day for work and this app tells me that my GPS doesn't work even though it works everywhere else. Terrible app and a waste of time!
BetterPoints is a great idea but I feel this application doesn't do it justice, definitely lacking in speed, reliability, and consistency of point application. Hope it improves in later versions.
