Ratings and Reviews
No Apple watch to input climbs?
App seems cool but I don't climb with my phone for obvious reasons of weight and falling on it and flexibility limitations if it's in my pocket. Make an apple watch app that just has V blank a scroll bar and 5. Blank scroll bar. And I'm happy to keep the app. For now though I can't really use it. I'll keep it on my phone for a month or two. Hope you can update it by then!
Sorry about the harsh rating. I just can't use the app so idk 2 Star for effort?
Thanks for the reply... So I updated it to 4 stars which is the current average. I still can't use the app but yah I'll wait I guess. Overall it seems like a cool app, but I don't climbing with my phone or leave it out since they crazy expensive now. Hoepfully you can get the apple watch update out asap.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback even with the harsh rating. :) I'd recommend to try keeping the app on the ground so there isn't issues with it being in your pocket, but inputing the climb info once you get back down. It can still provide some great insights with quickly added manual climbs from the phone. We think that an Apple Watch app would be great though and hope to be able to offer it in the future!
Seems really useful, but would like a watch app
This tool seems really useful, and I will totally use it more and more. I work at a rock gym, and I can see this being a valuable tool for coaching teams and adult classes. I think it’d be ever more useful with a watch companion, as climbing with a phone in your pocket can be tricky and updating the app after each climb seems like a little much. Even a small Bluetooth companion that could connect to a chalk bag or harness could make this app even more useful.
Only way I'm able to keep track!
I know it's important to keep track of workouts for progress purposes, but who needs another piece of paper floating around you're just going to lose? Honestly, unless it's in digital form I pretty much can't keep track of anything. That's why I love this app. It makes keeping track of my climbing progress and how often I go climbing very quick and easy. Knowing that my climbs are being tracked and that I'm connected with other people also inspires me to keep hitting the gym on a regular basis. Would recommend!
