Doesn't run very smooth. Nothing is working when I click on it.
Needs to show hours!
The problem with swimming at BSU is there are very limited hours. I've never been when I could not at least share a lane--if only it is open for use at all. Then, when you are on a regular exercise schedule, the pool hours are even more limited. For instance, today is Sunday and the Ball pool is open 4-6, assuming we are still on the 'Fall' schedule as shown on the BSU web site. Its January, so who knows? I just looked it up. Too bad this app won't show it. It currently shows ball pool have 6 people, but it's not even open for three more hours. I bookmarked the PDF of spring schedule on my home screen to get hours. I guess this app only shows a seasonal average number of users, I wonder how the data are refreshed, but it doesn't seem based on our check in data (we have to swipe our cards, so it would be possible it seems).
Still a work in progress
Awesome concept but it still has a lot of work to be done. Hours of operation should be added as well as a more accurate reading on current occupancy.. When areas are closed and shut down (ie the pool) it still shows 6 occupants ect ect. This is a good first step can't wait to see the next one.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
