May affect activity

Great ap and well thought out. Not complaining about a free ap but be aware this may dramatically increase your exercise time and therefore your total calories in Activity. Even with ap forced closed (and even deleted) my Apple Watch was stuck in exercise mode. I had to reset the watch to clear it out of that mode.

Developer Response ,

If you scroll to the bottom of the app screen and press “end game” it will stop the activity. I will make this clearer in the iPhone app in the next release.

Terrible, terrible, terrible

This app will not stop asking for access to your health data. You say no, it asks again in 5 seconds, and again and again. After saying yes, it still keeps asking for your data. Either way, it completely screws up your daily activity tracking. It posts every minute as exercise and amplifies your calories burned to a level that is beyond believable. Once started on the watch, it never stops. You can reset a game, but the “end game” feature never works. It just runs and runs in the background, giving you 1000 exercise minutes and 10,000 calories burned. I have had to delete it from my apps all four times I’ve downloaded it. I will never download it again. I would rather pay $75 for a timer that does what it’s supposed to do and nothing more.

First, my apologies for the issue the app is having on your device. If you send an email to the support email I would be willing to address it with you. Have a great season!

Easy to use...

App works great on the field... I don’t like the way that it adds so much “activity” to my move and exercise goals..

I’m sure I don’t burn 1200 calories doing a 2 hour football game...
