Does Exactly What It Was Designed To Do...
For peolple that gave this app 1, 2, 3 or even 4 stars the question you have to ask yourself is what do you want or plan to do with the OS X version of the Microsoft Band App? If you want to use the App strictly for syncing data between the Microsoft Band, Updating the Band Software, changing the background and color of the Band, or rearranging tiles and tile options, then this App is excellent and does exactly that. That’s all Microsoft claims this App will do. Nothing more, nothing less, read the description.
However, if you were expecting this App to do everything the Microsoft Healthy App does on the iPhone, then you are going to be very disappointed. For example, you can add or remove tiles, just rearrange them. You can view any of your results (Steps, Calories, etc) in the App; however, the App provides a link to your online Dashboard. This App is a companion App for the Microsoft Health App not a replacement.
As far as I’m concerned this App does exactly what it was designed to and and what Microsoft wrote in the App description. The newest version works seemlessly and I have not notice any bugs or glitches.
It Does What It Says!!!
I frankly don’t understand why people give such low reviews. The only explanation I can think of it’s because they do not read what features apps truly provide. If people, as educated as they think they are, were to really read what the app offers, they would have the option to either download or not the app, instead of just venting on a review what the app didn’t do. One suggestion to Microsoft is to allow people to take a picture or a snapshot of the issue so it can be resolved before a review is posted. Great job MICROSOFT!!!. You’re on the right path!!!
It syncs and offers a few settings, but it isn’t pretty
It does sync w/ the band, tells you if the band needs an update (it just came out, so no, it doesn’t), and offers a few settings (fewer than the phone apps.) I suppose it does work.
But the login screen was confusing (I had to close it the first time, since it just came up blank.) And the spacing of the text within the app reduces my opinion of the Microsoft brand overall… it seems like a very bad version of the (relatively elegant) modern/Metro style used in Windows, hastily constructed to offer the very minimal surface area it does offer.
