Is this thing working?
I’m writing this for 2 reasons. 1. I’m reading about all the problems with the app crashing since the change. I used it a lot in the past and got away from it but I’ve recently started using it more often, walking 2 miles a day for three weeks straight now and I’ve had 0 issues. Not one problem with it crashing.
But the second reason for writing this is an problem I do have.... is the rescue I picked getting anything? The answer... no. It’s my friends rescue and I talked to her today. She’s had walkers walking for her for months now and she hasn’t received a penny. Not one donation. My guess is there must be minimum requirements in order to get paid?? Don't know? All I know is I walked dozens of times and who knows... apparently it’s all for nothing. 🤷🏻♂️
Used to be great
Update: after deleting and reinstalling the app still crashes constantly and the developers never got back to me.
I like tracking the walks I do with the pups and this app was very helpful. I recommended it to many people. I received one or two notifications of donations made to my shelter of choosing on my behalf. I downloaded the app two years ago and have logged more than 1000 miles in walks.
The new app, Wooftrax (it was called “Walk for a Dog” before) has better maps than before and you can pause the walks if needed, which I liked. But the new app also has some sort of glitch and crashes in the middle of my walks. In the last few weeks I noticed many times that the app crashes without me even touching my phone and as a result it’s logging shorter walks than we are doing. At first I thought it may be something with me using other apps simultaneously but that doesn’t make any sense and many times the app crashes while the phone is in my pocket. I contacted the developers two weeks ago and did not hear from them. I deleted the app and reinstalled it. It recovered my information and I will report if that helped. I don’t recommend the app anymore.
Annoying pop up ads with sound
Great app, but since last release whenever I stop the “timer” to finish my app, a very annoying pop up ad with loud volume comes up. You either have to let it play out or swipe it away. If you swipe it away, you’re taken back to the app’s home page and you then have to go hunt for your recent walk in the history screen to upload/post it. What’s really annoying is if you’re listening to music or a podcast when that pop up happens, it interrupts what you actually are trying to listen to, and makes you go back into it to continue. This all seems to have started happening just recently. I hope they do something about it. At least auto-mute the annoying pop ups. That’s a good start.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your new comments, the app is brand new with some significant new features. The Pet Hero cards that first come up can be closed by touching the X at the top right. These cards feature WoofTrax users who have helped win or earn donations. But you can still start a walk just by touching start walking now! right from these cards. The new app also features leaderboards where you can see and compete with other dog lovers in your community.
All of your dogs are still selectable, but now are on a carousel, you can swipe through. Any questions we are ready to assist at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello and thank you for your comment. There are no ads on the app when it first launches. The only ad you should see is after you take your walk and press stop walking. There is a brief ad that will display then, which can be closed by the user. If you are seeing an ad when Walk for a Dog first loads, please email email@example.com, but I can assure you there are no ads programmed to run when you are trying to get a leash on your furry friend and take them for a walk. That would certainly be annoying!
