What's New in Version 2.6
Potential but buggy
This app is exactly what I was looking for: a way for my family to setup teams and battles. Unfortunately so far the app is just inconsistent and buggy. When I try to revisit a team Battle I’ve created, I have to hunt and hunt for it rather than it showing up under home under my contests. I also cannot edit it. So I tried to create a new one instead and I can’t send invites. Facebook connect also yielded no results although I’m sitting beside my wife and I know she’s in the system. Also def needs a manual refresh for steps and such. Lots of potential, just not there yet
After using this first day, I also note that the team battles aren’t correctly calculating totals. For example my home shows I have 9k or so steps and my wife has some too. Our team only shows 5k steps combined. Giving this info to help developer not to bash. I love the idea of this app and want it to be successful! Will gladly come back and give 5 stars once things are more consistent
Like the idea but very buggy
It’s easy to set up a new team battle, which is exactly what I wanted to do.
However, once you joined a, it doesn’t show in My Contests. That button just goes to all contests and there is no way to just see a list of all your past/ongoing/upcoming contests you had joined. It’s always a multi step hunt to find the team battle.
From a previous team battle, the app didn’t sync at least a week of my steps. So the contest data is not accurate and doesn’t seem fair to give out team prizes.
Please fix and I am happy to give 5 stars.
