Great concepts, a few critiques
The concept of this app is great. Money is a good motivator. Personally, I'm already fit and healthy so this is a really easy way to hold me accountable and earn a little extra money. However, I think there should be more education about what is healthy and what a serving is. That would keep things more consistent with voting. Also, the app is very glitchy. I've managed to make it work for me, but it is annoying. As well, I don't feel like there is enough information of how the app actually works. When I send questions, I got the same generic answer for each one. Then, they put my pact on hold. My latest problem was being stuck in a loop when I tried to connect to MyFitnessPal, I'm sure I'll forgive that out too though (I have an iPhone6s). I hope it all can be resolved because I actually like the concept and would like to see it with all the kinks worked out. Good luck developers! 😉👍🏼
Update: I changed my rating from a 3 to a 4 because I explained my struggle to reach my goal and asked how the pay out worked so I could make up my loss. The lovely lady who helped me changed my goal so I wouldn't be charged and explained everything! She was so encouraging too. I still have some issues, but it looks like they are working on improving the app.
I've had few problems, but good overall
At the beginning (about 2 years ago), I was completing only the gym and veggie pacts. It was great and worked well. I only earned less than $1 each week, but it helped keep me accountable. When I had a problem, I received prompt reply from support. Then I started having problems uploading veggie pictures, so I had to stop the veggie pact after many attempts to complete it. I was charged only once for that bug in the app, and support refunded it to me after I contacted them. I still haven't had any luck with veggies but the gym pact has held up. This week I lost a workout and has to contact support, and there was an automated message approving my workout. It happened about two seconds after I first submitted my email.
Overall, this is not an app to make money. It keeps you accountable for a healthy lifestyle, and it does that, except I haven't gotten the veggie pact to properly upload my pics. 4/5.
I've been using this app for a long time now and love it but I took a break about months ago and ever since I've started it back up I've had trouble loading my pictures. I have to close the app 5 or 6 times before my photo will show up that it's been submitted. Then it gives me a message "I've uploaded the maximum amount of photos for one day". When in reality I'm trying to upload the same photo because it doesn't submit correctly. It takes forever to find my location when I'm at the gym to start and end a workout. It freezes all the time when I'm trying to vote on other users veggie pacts. I have contacted the app developers about this and I was told they knew the app was freezing for some Apple users and there should be a update the next week. Well next week came and went and I'm still having trouble. SOMEONE FIX IT! I just spent a extra 20 mins at the gym trying to check out of my Hr long session because it couldn't find my location! If I hadn't I wouldn't have gotten the credit if I left that location. It's been 5 months with NO FIXES! 😡
