I wouldn’t use it if I had a choice
I find this app very frustrating and to be honest, if I didn’t have to use it for communicating with my NF coach, I definitely wouldn’t. This app is the poster child for why you shouldn’t shoehorn web apps into native wrappers and think that you have made a mobile app. I can say that the mobile app is at least a much better experience than their web app, which is so bad they shouldn’t even have it deployed where customers can reach it.
The UI for the mobile app is too clunky and childish. The headers are too big and the data density is too low. I shouldn’t need to scroll and scroll to enter data for a workout. Every other app that allows me to upload a photo or video has figured out how to differentiate photos from videos, but this app insists on offering me separate options for “Select photo” “Select video” “Take photo” and “Take video”. And it doesn’t allow pasting images in either, so if I want to send a screenshot, I have to save it to my camera roll rather than copying it and then deleting it. Oh, and if you’re uploading a photo, you better be sure you chose the right one because there’s no confirmation before the upload actually occurs. You tap on an image and *zoom* there it goes!
Because it’s a web app wrapper and because their QA process is inadequate or non-existant, they’re able to deploy new bugs frequently such as the recent one where I could not delete a workout. And from what I can tell, the only way to report bugs is by telling my coach. That’s not what she is for!
Syncing is a mess. I find data that I am not yet finished entering attempting to sync or being blanked out because syncing finished and the app updated the object that I was in the process of editing. This happens most often with notes on tasks, but I have seen it in other areas as well.
I find it frustrating that the app doesn’t integrate with HealthKit for fetching things like Activity data, workouts, and body measurements. I shouldn’t have to enter this stuff multiple times if it’s already being managed in a central place. I’ve mentioned it to my coach for months and the last answer, from just a couple months ago, was that this still isn’t even on the development horizon. Come on…
Like a reviewer on the other Nerd Fitness app mentioned, I would love if this integrated more with my Nerd Fitness profile, my quests, character, and epic quests, and other things that Nerd Fitness is uniquely suited to. Let me manage my workouts and health measurements myself and then read those in. That would be actual added value. As is, this app just serves as a really bad chat program for me to send messages to my coach. And it’s not fun to use even for that.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
