Ratings and Reviews
Love this app, BUT!!
I used to use this app a lot, so did the rest of my family. But since I got the iPhone 11 Max Pro, it no longer works on this phone. I hope that it is updated soon
I love this app. We use it on our motorbikes for group rides. If the group gets split up for any reason we are able to identify where the others are and rejoin them.
Since upgrading my phone to IOS12 the app isn't working. Select country to enter phone number and crash or enter as guest and select config then crash.
Looking forward to a fix.
Developer Response ,
Sorry you had that issue jim_bo. It should be all resolved now with the latest update.
Dark Mode needs work
Some text and buttons are illegible in Dark Mode on iOS. For example the ‘Select’ button in Destination setting.
Many other places in the app too. For example within Settings it is hard to know which slider is ON and which is OFF.
A user has to turn off Dark Mode to see!
