Ratings and Reviews
Great app could be better
This app makes it so much easier for me to track my progress at my gym and to see which problems I have done and which I have yet to do. The only thing preventing this from being a five star review is that I can’t sort problems by location. Whenever I send a problem, I have to scroll through problems of certain grade or color until I find the one in the correct location. It would save so much time if I could sort by location to identify all V_ problems in a particular location. One other great feature would be if rankings were done for bouldering in addition to lead climbing, but that would just be a bonus.
Good idea, poorly executed
The whole concept behind the app is cool, but the UI is horrible. The app is filled with bugs, and is so hard to use. Other apps like KAYA have really got their stuff figured out. Their UI is very easy to use and looks good. Not the case for Vertical life.
Also, the customer support is pretty bad. Their responses are slow, and when I submit bug reports they tell me to sign in and out, update the app (which has not been updated in a month!), and re-download the app if. This is not how you treat bugs! You fix them and push an update.
Hopefully the devs can get their stuff figured out and actually make this a decent app.
Not helpful, too difficult to navigate or track progress
As you can see from the reviews this app is probably not worth your time. I think I would be able to track my progress more easily just by writing down what I’ve done in my notes app. In theory, having all the routes automatically uploaded by my gym would make it more convenient, but you can’t find anything, you can’t search ANYTHING at your gym so it takes absolutely forever to navigate and add progress, you can’t easily track what you have and haven’t done, it’s just not helpful as a training tool and I feel like I’m wasting my time at the gym scrolling and swiping to search for my climbs to add them.
