Interesting but with flaws
Am concerned when someone is in self isolation at home and when random requests keep coming of photo uploads and we have no choices of sound notifications alert and keep missing the rqst the next time we pick up the mobile ( and that could be after sleep, a nap, or shower, etc etc). Within minutes you can no longer upload anymore and keep waiting for the next one only not knowing when is next one and you miss it again which comes after many hours of staring or keep checking mobile (eyes hurting by then) and you put it down and know that you have yet again missed the request! This is soo tiring. A solution needs to be provided. PS: this is without any bracelet but with GPS on.
Everyone I know is facing similar issue.
Needs more development
App is highly invasive and irritating. It sends repetitive notifications every 15 minutes or even more frequently sometimes which devalues its use. Requests for photo updates are easily missed due to the high volume of irrelevant notifications. Also, since I’m an early sleeper, any request sent after 8pm is usually missed. And once that limited window of opportunity for upload is missed, there is no way to send photos. This app needs some work to be done on it to make it more user friendly!
