Ratings and Reviews
Not truly counting steps...
Pretty cool app, but asking access to my iPhone’s health app to verify steps and only compute half or 1/3 of the actual steps taken registered by my iPhone is pointless. Is this not to give user sweatcoins? Why not use your app to piggyback onto the health app and use the data recorded on both apps (yours and iPhone) to verify so there’s no cheating? I have a 10 acre homestead and walk A LOT all day. Outdoors. When it’s very hot I switch my sleeping schedule to do chores throughout the night and sleep when it’s the hottest part of the day.
My iPhone counted 11k steps in one day, Sweatcpins registered 4K....
the idea of the app is awesome to inventive people to stay moving, but you (developers) should be a bit more in tune with whatever app you request access to on our phones.
Oh, and because I know I take thousands of steps every day, I opted for a system that charges me 20 sweatcoins a month, but if you’re not counting truly all the steps I take, I may just delete your app, because it feels like the ones whos cheating here is you... will keep it a little longer and see what happens.
Understand that allowing you to track my location and access to my health data is not something I want you to have for free, like everything in this world, data mining comes with a price, and if you’re not offering your users a decent payout and registering ALL the steps I take, you may not get to keep my data... and that’s not my isolated opinion...
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your thoughtful review, CatLadyOnTheFarm. We hope you continue to use the app and were updating to the latest versions as they should have solved some of the issues you mention. We would love to hear how well the app is tracking your steps now. With regards to the data - we do not access your health data, just steps and the only purpose of tracking your location is to make sure we can verify the steps walked. You would be amazed how many people try to game our app and generate sweatcoins by shaking the phone. We know that this is not the case with you, but without this verification algorithm, sweatcoins will have very little value. We hope to hear an update, Your Sweatcoin team
Deleting the app for the second time
I downloaded the app a year ago. I wasn’t really benefiting from it and needed the extra space in my phone so I deleted it. I redownloaded the app a month ago in hopes that the app had improved and I noticed it had pretty decent reviews since I uninstalled it so I gave it another try. The app does not count all of your steps and it only works with your phone or an Apple Watch of certain versions. The app doesn’t allow you to use other smart watches even though my smart watch has all of the qualifications that the creators claim their app needs. I sent them a support problem ticket bringing up several issues to take into consideration and they sent me the generic answer on their forum about solving the problem instead of actually reading the ticket and sending a reply. I messaged them back asking them to read the ticket and to get back with me but after a week of waiting I got nothing. I sent another ticket and within 2 minutes got another generic answer to my problem that had nothing to do with what was actually on the ticket. I gave two stars because the idea behind the app is a good one but the app itself needs work, not to mention the customer support is tacky and useless if you’re problem isn’t addressed in their help me section. I am uninstalling the app again but I don’t see myself giving it a third chance after this
Reading through reviews people bring up valid concerns with data mining and the location aspects. But everything data mines, and everything tracks you these days. Having a smart phone tracks you. You have a number assigned to you by the government that lets them track you. This is life.
Ultimately it’s a fun app, and it’s cool to have it going and really why not? I haven’t seen any prizes I really wanted or could use, other than the cash prize. And as someone else brought up you can’t really expect a huge payout just for walking. If you walk a marathon it would take three years to get the 20K prize (which is currently an IPhone which is useless since there will be a new phone in three years). I would rather see a consistent cash prize for the 20K tier. But either way the $1000 cash prize was 20k coins and even if it took you those three years or double that who cares. You’re literally just walking so you can’t expect a huge payout. It’s like playing one of the free scratcher apps and expecting to win a ton of money, or anything at all. When you do something for free, or an every day human task don’t expect much of a payout for it. Lower your expectations people because they won’t be met, just enjoy the ride!
