Ratings and Reviews
Lots of information and a few problems
I was looking at the app and as a runner, there was nothing on the menu saying: Your Information.
Turns out I wasn’t logged in. Which I could only do by going to the Settings item on the menu. Not obvious.
It would have been helpful to see on the home screen a button next to “Running? Log in to see your confirmation form.”
Also, the most painful problem, for some reason “paste” is disabled on the password field when you log in. For those of us who use password managers, we rely on copying a password from the manager app and pasting it into the password field. Very frustrating to have to bring my laptop over and show the password which I then have to type on the phone.
Please enable “paste” in the password field.
Sharing links don’t work
Like lots of people I downloaded the app to track a friend running in the marathon today. I ran into a problem when I tried to share a tracking link and it generated an Invalid Dynamic Link error from Firebase. I wanted to submit feedback to the app developer but there wasn’t a way to do that from the app that I could find. There was a form to submit feedback to the NYRR organization but the required category menu didn’t pop up so the submission failed. After looking at the form on the web site it’s clear there is no category for the app anyways. Clicking on support within the App Store just sends you to the TCS web site, nothing specific to the app. This might be a great app for the runners or for other features, but not being to report a problem is a big problem in and of itself.
I don’t want an app
I just want to track my friends running, I don’t want an app a web browser is good enough for other marathons *cough* Boston *cough*. Add insult to injury, on an iPad you get a tiny window because this is only an iPhone app.
Why three stars, instead of 2 (maybe even 1)? Because the app did work and the timings are responsive. At least their back end infrastructure is up to the task. Unlike some others *cough* Boston *cough*
