Ratings and Reviews
Good app but buggy
Works great when it does but when it doesn’t, it can be frustrating. I’ve used this app for 3 years now since it gives us the employees some cash back doing what we already do. Can be a good motivator as well. My issue is, the updates sometimes make a stable connection horribly wrong with Garmin. The last two
Updates killed my auto connection with the Garmin app that’s connects to my Garmin HR. Won’t connect despite multiple restarts and re install. So all my activities are not accurate and the actual tracking is not how I would want it honestly to be. I did use the max but it was bulky and not waterproof and has no Bluetooth. So I’m torn in making a bad review but it needs work... it really needs stable multi app connections and updates.

Last few updates have impaired not improved
I’ve used this app faithfully every day for several years... When you are self disciplined to live the lifestyle you can obviously incorporate updating an app to track your dedication... Updating your VP cards and Healthy Habits just becomes part of the process... however when the app shows them already completed one tends to initially move on and think to yourself oh, I must have completed that and forgotten I did it... only to find a few days later that tracking shows you missing several days which is very annoying because once those days are skipped there’s no way to make up the ‘card’ points!!
Becoming more aware of this occurring, I’ve opened and closed the app 3-4 times before it registers the current day is in fact still requiring completion.. I’m sure everyone can agree in today’s overly busy society no one has time or patience for dealing with this type of glitch long term.. we are conditioned nowadays when things don’t function properly to fix it or replace it...
I lost interest in logging into Facebook and that app enables us to connect to the most important people in our lives... so, if that factor alone couldn’t inspire me to overlook all the drawbacks to FB, I’m not too confident I’ll sustain interest in using this intermittently functioning app to track the daily routine of my already established dedication to living a healthy lifestyle.

Ok but there are issues
Overall does an okay job of very basic self-tracking behavior and (for me) was easy to get in the habit of entering info every day. It is limited in capability and lacks much in the way of functionality. Where it really falls short is tracking steps. I have a MaxBuzz wrist device. The app does not accurately counts steps - and sometimes just stops recording. I have noticed this in several different scenarios but especially when flying. I travel a lot for work and noticed the app gets locked up when I get off the plane. I recently got off the plane on concourse B in Atlanta and walked to baggage claim. That should have been at least 1000+ steps. Instead, it recorded zero steps. I tried turning the phone off/on but the app refused to update. This happens too often and is very frustrating. Maybe it can’t handle the phone being put into airplane mode. The app also doesn’t recognize my time zone no matter how many times I enter it in the profile; it always shows the last sync time 6 hours ahead - as in UK time. I am at home today and logged my stats first thing this morning and checked my steps through out the day but the app says last synced yesterday. This app could be so much better if they would put some effort in the development.
