PLEASE NOTE - This app can only sign in to JustGiving pages that were created on the Race for Life website. If you have created a JustGiving page outside of this process, the app will not be able to sign in to it. Sorry about that! If you have registered for Race for Life, you can easily create an official Just Giving page at: https://raceforlife.cancerresearchuk.org/rfl/forms/return-fundraiser/start.jsf. Thank you for your support!
What's New in Version 1.3.1
We have made 2015 Race for Life branding changes and bug fixes.
Can't read achievement text on this version
This version of the Race for Life app is worse than last year.
The best part of the app then was not only to be able to share my team's fundraising achievements via social media, but also to share with them what their collective donations could by for Cancer Research UK. Sharing the latter led to more donations!
In this version of the app I can still share achievement badges on social media.
However on the iPhone the achievement badges and copy font are now so big that I can only read the first line regarding what the donation means for the charity.
Can this be improved ASAP please?
Especially since the achievement badge copy does not appear to relate to the info on the Race for Life website. I want to be able to give my donors up to date info on this, so that I can raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK.
Won't connect to just giving
App won't connect to my just giving page. Keeps saying it can't find it. Saw lots of reviews which said similar but thought because so many people have the same problem that an update would come out with a bug fix -
But nothing .....and it's been about a month since I downloaded :-(
After numerous attempts to log the app to my just giving page I have given up! Every time it finds my page it states that I need to connect to the Internet...I have tried this through wifi as well as 4g and nothing!! Complete shame as I believe this would be a great app if it worked!
