Ratings and Reviews
Update Broke Connectivity
The app provides minimal information but at least it connected to my phone BEFORE the recent update. Now it doesn’t recognize my device and crashes if I try to connect my rower as a new device.
Updated Review: The developer fixed the connectivity issue! I am happy with the information the app provides, though I understand if others want something more. But it provides basic workout data and does it well.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, we've resolved this issue in the recent update (2.11.3). Could you try again and contact us on email@example.com if this issue persists?
This app looks sleek. And when I first set it up it seemed to work nice and easily with my Bluetooth Comm. I connected it to Strava and it uploaded my first two workouts. I also found it connected quickly to my TickrX HRM.
However, today it wouldn’t upload my workout to Strava. Then I found that I could add manual activities, but not delete them. And when I looked for a help section or a way to contact app support I haven’t found a thing or a way to contact support.
So when the app works it works great. Doesn’t have bells and whistles, but it looks nice and does what it needs to do. However, when it doesn’t work there doesn’t seem to be any way to get any help or support which is very frustrating.
I’m a bit baffled by the redundancy between the S4 and this app. It counts your strokes? That’s what I spent $60 on? I already log my rows manually. The workout record is trapped in the app as far as I can tell. It seems to play nicely with Strava and Apple Health if that’s important to you. You are also blocked from plugging in the cable for “we-row” which apparently has no Bluetooth support. I feel like I’ve been taking crazy pills. WR and hi tech don’t mix.
The July 2024 update is abhorrent. The numbers were hard to read while erging, but now with the new font they’re virtually invisible. The new ‘save’ color is completely different. Why? Who’s behind the redesign? It represents major step’s backwards. Criminal even.
