The customer-hostile App Store obsession with subscription pricing is at its 100% worst here.
Gorgeous data aggregator.
I’m a huge fan of life tracking and obsessing over data and this app has that in spades. It is also gorgeously presented (even if very tiny). I am having a very hard time finding enough value to justify a hefty subscription though... Especially trying to justify paying monthly to give the developers massive amounts of personal data.
Update: after a couple weeks of use I’m still loving it. I am cancelling the Pro subscription plan. I can’t even justify dropping $80 one time on a full-fledged powerhouse app of any kind (desktop or mobile) better yet a passive data aggregator. Even worse would be $120/year on a monthly plan. $10 a year maybe, a month? Hard pass. The customer hostile App Store obsession with subscription pricing is at its 100% worst here.
It’s great if you had nothing
To start Out this app is pretty decent. If you get all the apps that integrates with this app then your off to a go start ,.... but if you already have other apps that do what this apps does.. like tells you what your heart rate is or was at a certain part of the day ( apples health app, under Armour record), or tells you where you were through out the day ( google maps, Facebook, yada yada yada) , or even take selfie pictures ( instagram, Flickr, Facebook) then you might want to hold off on getting this one. I’ve had it for about two weeks trying to get into a swing of things with it but just can’t. If I want to see where I was I have to go to another app that is supposed to work well with this app” moves” but if you didn’t save a location on that app this app don’t know where you went. If you didn’t record a work out then this app doesn’t know you worked out unless the other apps you save a workout in recorded a workout which then saves it to the health app then tells this app that you worked out ... and the list goes on. As I said this app is decent but not great. It missing so much of what I’d like to see this app have so I could use it as an ALL IN ONE app. Maybe down the road if this app and Company use the license or permissions to use other apps like apples health app or UA’s record app then maybe this would be a great warm almost perfect app to use but not till then. Is missing a lot of links.
Developer Response ,
Thank! We just added our own Places feature, so now you don't need to use an extra integration. We still integrate with other devices to load more data, but if you've been waiting for an "all-in-one" app, this should now be much better!
Way too many bugs
I really want this app to be great, but it simply has too many bugs. The app freezes up on a daily basis. It has trouble importing data from Apple Health. At the moment, I’m still waiting for step counts to update from yesterday even though I see the total in Apple Health and Garmin. Pull to refresh, and nothing happens. The sleep tracking is poor as well. I wear a device that tracks sleep, but for some reason, Gyroscope thinks it knows better and modifies that data with its “Sleep AI” making it incorrect. Location tracking is horrible too. I am connected to Foursquare as well as Gyroscope’s own location tracking, but if Gyroscope’s location tracking is turned on, it completely ignores the Foursquare data. Oh, and it has the same problem refreshing data. At the end of the day, it will often still show that I’ve only been at home in the morning.
I could go on, but the bottom line is that I have to babysit this app to make sure the captured data is correct. Otherwise, what’s the point? But the worst part is if I notice the data is incorrect or not updating, there is nothing I can do to correct that. No doubt, they great a good looking app, but don’t fall for the looks because functionality is lacking severely.
I paid for the annual subscription, and I regret it. It’s a waste of money. Pay close attention to the data before subscribing. You’ll undoubtably see the problems.

Thanks for the feedback on the beta features. Places has now been released in V2 and should be much better, addressing these issues you mentioned. Try it out again and let us know how it goes!
