Ratings and Reviews
Great Concept, Faulty App
I love the idea that walking + biking will offset automatically calculated travel emissions. For the most part, that is how OffCents functions. However, the app has several bugs—for example, the home screen feature displaying amount of emissions remaining to be offset always shows an incorrect number. On the Trips tab, trips remaining to be offset sometimes show up & sometimes don’t. Clicking the “offset” button sometimes works, sometimes lags, & sometimes crashes the app. These are not essential elements, but they do detract from ease of the app’s use.
The rewards are also, in my mother’s words, “a bit dinky.” Many are simply coupons you could likely find online. I understand that rewards are far from the main purpose of this app, but if you’re going to offer them, it would be far more enticing to be offered something substantial.
OffCents does a good job in being transparent about the types of offsets retired by the company, but making this a bit more immediately visible & interactive would be nice. Some sort of choice regarding which offset the user retires or more extensive background on the offsets would likely motivate offsetting more than offering coupons does.
Great idea, needs more work
Great concept, but I really wish the app would work better. It's great at picking up my movements, but often times it selects "Random Average Car", even after I've entered my car details. A nice future feature would also be to intelligently label trips that are similar to trips I've taken before (eg. daily commute by train). It doesn't always properly sync bike rides that appear in the Health app, and unfortunately, as of this morning, the app hangs on startup with a spinner
Everyone should have this app
This app is freaking amazing to the point where it helped lessen my suicidal thoughts about being a burden on the environment. I love this app and think it’s one everyone should have which is why I gave it five stars. I have however come across a problem where my credits are not loading and I’m not sure why or how to fix it. I’m assuming that either it’s just my phone being annoying since it’s old or that the problem will get fixed in the next update.
