This app needs a lot more work
I tried to track my friend on Sunday. It showed she never crossed the start line then once she got to the 5k point it loaded the start time and the 5k Point then I tried to find her around the 25k point then the 25k line disappeared completely from the app then all of a sudden she was at the 40k point. When I looked at the results at the end the 25k point magically appeared again. If you are going to have an app for 40k + people running you better be able to support that amount of people tracking everyone. Such a disappointing tracking experience.
I have been tracking runners for years and this was AMAZING!! the only reason I missed my runner was because I didn't see them. This app was spot on!! We were in a group helping people around us. Someone tracked a woman's husband and - volià there he was!! I believe this app made a lot of people happy yesterday.
Needs some work
While trying track multiple friends, it's difficult with the lack of splits. Maybe every 5 miles. GPS tracking has been simplified over the years. It can't be that difficult to increase the data.
Also, let's streamline the measurements. The app map is calculated in miles but the app splits are calculated in kilometers. Let's simplify for the user. Having to do calculations to determine how many miles in kilometers does not make it a good experience.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
