What's New in Version 6.0.1
Squashed bugs and improved stability.
Placebo -- still ... and massively frustrating to use
10 May 2015 update:
Still desperately trying to use this app, still a placebo app, still marginally useful in that it freezes and is very clunky to use. Why do I keep trying? Who knows…27 Feb update: I desperately want to use this app, because AT&T service is so spotty. I don't know which is worse, enduring AT&T's spotty service or trying to use this app, extremely slow and buggy when you open it, and still feels very much like a placebo. Please still the app or make it (a) usable and (b) effective,
Update: how many months later and a) no improvement noticeable from reports submitted and b) the app is insanely frustrating to use...virtually always when you open the app there's a 15-30 second delay before the app will respond to any input, appears frozen. Then when you try to submit it also freezes -- then gives you a 'warning' that you've submitted 20 reports in the last hour when (as far as I can tell) I haven't successfully submitted one!!!
No evidence using this ap has ANY bearing on AT&T's service. They are apparently content to frustrate their iPhone customers and drive them to Verizon.
Needs Poor Signal Selection
Needs Poor Signal Selection, I have no proper category to select a location I used to get 4 bars reliably, and now way less!
As part of what this app does it should do a speed test check and show the end-user as well. One thing you may not be aware of is that when you call AT&T they can see the last few mark the spots typically within the last month or so, so use these along with your phone call to customer service and keep following up and submit mark the spots daily for problem areas and keep calling them on a weekly or monthly basis.
A little effort please!
This app is an awesome concept and I’ve reported a ton of bad network areas over the years. Heck, a couple of them have even been improved.
However, why is an app that should be so simple so slow to load? Half the time by the time the app opens we’re miles away if traveling.
I just had to leave the app open for 10 minutes to submit 5 cached pins that were simply notifications that the network wasn’t available at some locations. I’m currently in a strong LTE area AND had access to extremely fast wireless.
And according to the App AT&T hasn’t made a single network update that was newsworthy since November. It also constantly says it can’t get news updates (there was an error processing your News request).
Two stars just because the app is a good idea. If it weren’t for that you’d get one star at best. Just put a little effort into it please!
