Great, but could use improvement.
Argus is an app that helps you track your daily life and tell you how you should improve on it. My only problem is the social side of it. This is because there really is no way to connect to your friends and load times for searching take awhile to load. In order to improve that they should add a "add friends from contacts" feature along with the ability to add/connect more social networks to your account. The second and last problem I have with this app is the way you record your information into the app. This is because you must open the app and record each and every thing on their, but usually I'll forget which means barely any data ever gets entered. To improve the team behind Argus should add a reminder feature in which you can set personal reminders at different points of the day in order to help you record and input more data.
I gave this a five star rating because overall Argus is one of the best health apps out there. I would have given it a 4.5 rating because of the faults in it, but I can't and a 4 star rating just wouldn't do it justice.
Good for some things, but fails on some data tracking
UPDATE: The latest update does a better job finding and keeping track of calories, but seems to record everything to the previous day. It doesn't seem to be able to add to the current day. So, improvement over previous, but still not quite right.
Everything on this app seems pretty well. It tracks my steps as long as I have my phone with me. It records my sleep and heartbeat. I can track my weight. I can record exercises and time them.
The problem is the calorie tracker. The database it's using is losing track of the date and applying calorie information to the wrong day. This also tends to delete some data from previous days. Sometimes killing the app and re-opening it seems to fix it, but this time it deleted all my calorie data prior to today.
If you're calorie tracking, at least as far as this version, use another app, or get used to waiting a day to record it. Everything else works great.
I use it mostly to count my steps, check my heart rate, and see my sleep patterns. There are several challenges for walking (steps), so if you or your friends need a little motivation to walk more, pick a challenge. You can see how your friends are doing at any time, and vise versa. Argus has many good options for people watching their weight as well.
I would give five stars if I didn't have to pay for all the upgrades, which makes argus more fun and interesting. But I'm content with what I can do for free😊
