Ratings and Reviews
Improved tracking but data analysis still weak
After using this app for two years on a Pebble watch, it was hit or miss. Moving on to an Apple Watch 2, the interface was better but motion tracking and distance recording was only slightly better. Recent updates under iOS 12 and WatchOS 5 give much better tracking in the pool. I still get occasional phantom laps added but overall, length tracking is very good.
The app still cannot distinguish my breaststroke from freestyle. So frustrating.
I wish the app allowed better data analysis of multiple workouts over a period of months, like being able to chart swolf for all of my swims. I’m not a competitive swimmer so many of the apps features don't appeal to me. I just don't understand why I cant look at the pace of all my freestyle sessions over time and see if I’m improving.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. We recently released version 2.3.2 which fixed the tracking issue for Apple Watch users. In addition, we recently (Friday of last week) completed revision of our technology roadmap and feature set. Expect to see several changes implemented over the next 60 days. These changes will significantly enhance our analytics capabilities including more detailed breakdown by different parameters.
Please keep sharing your feedback and ideas for enhancement. We are listening and engaging with our users to help develop our roadmap and beta test changes.
This app has all the potential of being great but the inaccuracy of the total distance swam makes it annoying. Additionally, if you’re a consistent long distance swimmer (+4,000meters at a time) it has a high likelihood of crashing. I’m part of a club team and we have “wall tap counters” (every time you touch the wall it counts the lap you’re on) we found the app to be about 10-20% off on the total number of laps swam. So...I have a solution for you. The reason why the app counter is wrong is because it doesn’t take into account that some swimmers have longer “strides, glides, wingspan” then others, one way you could fix that is by allowing the app to calibrate individual swimmers. At the start of your app, you should have swimmers swim 25-50 meters so that the App gets used to how many arm lengths it takes for that particular swimmer, making the app more accurate.
Bug fixes > Useless features
I want to like this app. It has potential, and I’ve stuck with it for the past three years. Unfortunately, the bugs are overwhelming. Even something as simple as drill mode, where the app doesn’t need to do anything except what it is told by the user, fails to record proper distance and time. Not to mention the latest “upgrade” to drill mode that uses force touch to control it at every interval. In water, force touch doesn’t work that well, so it is a nightmare to use. What’s more, half of the time the workouts don’t upload correctly from an Apple Watch. Spend more time on bug fixes rather than continuing to push forward useless and detrimental features. Make the app solid and reliable first, then focus on upgrades.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
