imposible to close or quit unless force quit
Does anyone know how to smoothly close the app?
Its been imposible for me and everytime I'm using it I have to force quit it.
Also, when I finish the ride, info appears in my cell phone but not on my laptop.
Has potential, but need to hire a Product Manager
I love the idea of riding real roads, but in practice RGT has a fair way to go.
Just 3 mins into my ride the 3D rending just went haywire and there was this weird rainbow-coloured pixel noise overlaid over everything. Also, the 3D models lack detail and there are very few other riders, limiting drafting and other interactions.
Overall it's product which appears to have been created by engineers (I am one so nothing against engineers) but is in dire need of an experienced Product Manager and UX designers. For example - labelling one of the options tabs "GUI" means nothing to 99% of real users. Showing the FPS is meaningless to most users. The onboarding flow on iOS is super-janky and in this day and age will leave the instant impression of low quality with tech-savvy users. There are also far too many options when you land in the app, and it's unclear what I'm supposed to do. I would develop fewer new features and focus on getting the basics right.
The visual and riding experience is good, and there’s an ok variety of courses, at least to start. The mobile and screen apps had a hard time connecting (though it worked eventually) and I have to force quit the screen app every time I exit because it hangs (I also have to use the escape key on my keyboard to exit because I can’t see any way to minimize or exit the app with the mouse). Get the bugs smoothed out and keep adding courses, and this will be a winner.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
