Updated review: New version does post to Fitbit correctly. Haven't taken it for a ride longer than 2 minutes, but it seemed to work ok. Loved the app until 8/1/16 when Fitbit changed their security. From the Fitbit forums: :"To enhance security for our users, we've upgraded from OAuth 1.0a to OAuth 2.0. OAuth 2.0 is a significant improvement from OAuth 1.0a." Will DriveBit be updated to reflect the security change?
For a first time fitness tracker user I'm greatfull for this app as I can now learn more with less confusion. I am baffled over the need to have both Steps and distance tracking. After 3 days of trying to learn how to best use my new fitbit I've ended up with some 9000 inaccurate and useless steps but when I explicitly set it to WALK it was useful and accurate. I still have time to return this and try out a competitive model and if I don't its cause of the help of this app
Won't stay signed in. Didn't log several drives because it doesn't notify you it failed to post (using the widget) unless you open the app. Seems like I have to sign in daily. Would be 5/5 if it would stay connected.
Used to work then stopped start of Aug. Like many on here emailed them no reply. No response on here either. 2 weeks Now 3 and counting without a response terrible. I have found a more reliable app, it's called PAPER AND PENCIL, it works every time Only got 1 star as cant give it 0 stars...From their web site DRIVEBIT 1.0.14 RELEASED DECEMBER 31, 2013. Updated 12 June 2015, looks like we will have to wait until 2017 for next update. Just glad I didn't pay for the upgrade. App updated 07 Jan 2017 Will try it out 08 Jan 2017 Well took it for a test run Sunday and Monday. Works as stated. Now to workout how to get it to work via NFC.
Wonderful app It is great that I can just hit a button on my phone and it will track the driving for me. It corrects the altitude and vibrations that count as steps and stairs while driving.
Good App Didn't work for like 8 months, but it's fixed now and it is incredibly useful for when I'm riding my motorcycle.
Fixed connection issue with Fitbit (sorry about that!)
