Ratings and Reviews
I found it very discouraging when I first saw how many people were in the challenges. Once I figured out how to begin my own challenge and invite others is when it began to pick up. I now have fun encouraging and challenging others and myself as well to complete all rings. Since this app I find myself being more competitive and the drive to have the most points at the end of the day pushes me to exercise. Get this app. It's free and worth it. Live healthy live happy 😁
Trouble syncing data from previous days.
I did a couple of late night workouts and noticed that my iPhone Activity App (to which this App syncs) tally for move (calories) and exercise (minutes) did not match what was in this app. It fails to update the data for any activity that happens between the last sync of the day and midnight. In other words, if it syncs at 11:40 pm, and again at 12:01 am, the activity that occurred between 11:40 and midnight is not updated in this App, no matter how many times I try to sync. Now that I am aware of this issue, I will manually sync just before midnight when I am working out late at night. However, it would be nice to see this issue addressed in future updates.
App immediately opens to a screen to make a “Lose It” app logon. If I wanted to use “Lose it” or have an account, I’d of downloaded that app instead. Have found that most apps lately that require an account that needs to be logged into are data sellers, meaning everything logged about you is sold to “partners” and the company you’re dealing with will say they are not responsible for what the partners do with your info. Did not make an account in this app, so did not get to read the fine print, but it’s a good guess that’s where this was headed. Apps are what’s for sale anymore, you are. And your entire online world is tied to the email account you use, which is also tied to the real world.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
