Ratings and Reviews
Needs to filter based on criteria
All in all, I’m very happy to participate in these studies. For all the people complaining about “lack of compensation” I would say that sometime we should just do things because they help others, not because we personally get compensation for it.
Knocking off one star because it needs to filter the studies based on eligibility criteria. As a guy, I cannot possible participate in a cycle tracking studies, so it should either not be show at all or have an option to dismiss from your available studies due to ineligibility.
My iPhone also can't do most of studies without Apple Watch etc.. I bought beats flex from apple but they want the more expensive ones I don't own. I can only sign up for one research because yes I'm a woman but I no longer have cycles. My heart is bad And it claims to be reading the bpm right. Yet not once was I warned when it bottoms out or jumps super high. Just the scary numbers show, the warning doesn't work. I'm hard of hearing. That was also wrong. So I must agree right now it seems marketing is what these apps appear to be for. Not our actual health. When they upgrade, improve what they have going then and only then should you download any apps for your health. Read certificates etc,, it will shock you who's hands are in these also. Your your best advocate..apple please get it together and stop with the apple products only. I Iove some of your products, I also love others. Let us choose what to use and take the chances with them. Thankyou.. god bless everyone's health.
Technical issues and not living up to potential
This app has a lot of potential but so far only a few studies have used it and I wonder if that’s because the research app doesn’t work well for researchers and thus isn’t inviting. In any case the support for this app is non existent they have a studies support center that reads from scripts and doesn’t seem to have any experience with the research app and the documentation doesn’t explain certain troubleshooting scenarios and to make things worse the studies support center won’t escalate to someone who can help you.
The research app after a new phone upgrade and following the transfer studies process never asked for Apple health access again and I can’t get access restored which means the app is no longer collecting data from me. Support was outsourced and unhelpful and refused to file a big report and tried to pin it on user error which it isn’t.
