What's New in Version 6.1
- iPhone 6 / 6 Plus Ready
- iOS 8 Ready
- Touch ID Ready
Needs to be revamped
Onscreen buttons/controls give no visual feedback that they've been tapped. Sluggish response. No HealthKit integration? And, most problematic for me, integration with Moves app was buggy - first tap to effect the connection took very long. 2nd attempt seemed to "collide" with the first, leading to data being successfully imported though the app reported that the connection was not successful. Thereafter, the app reported that it could not access Moves Dara and that I should "log out" and reestablishing a connection. Hmm, log out how and where? Revoking permission in Moves had no effect. The app itself showed "connected" while it's dialog box warned that it wasn't. The settings area in iOS' Settings for this app is blank. I could find no option that allowed me to break the non-working "connection". Quitting the app from the switcher didn't help. Restarting the phone didn't help. Removing the app, re-downloading and restoring from initial backup had no effect. I gave up and deleted the app.
It WAS a great app until......
Overall I have really enjoyed this app. Unfortunately, since the format changed , I find it much less user friendly and I seem to not want to use it very much. The BMI function used to be really helpful: you could move the indicator to the number you were aiming for and it would tell you how many lb.s you need to lose or gain to get there. Now this function is gone.
Also, some of the other functions that I used to like are gone or do not work as well. Also I find the new design much less aesthetic than before. I hope that maybe Tactio will go back to some of the features that were helpful. Newer is not always better. The mood tracking feature could be helpful , but unfortunately the choices of moods-- "calm", is redundant with "relaxed", bored is in the red zone. They need to consult a mental health expert on their mood choices !
So far so good… I mainly gave this app a 5 because I saw so many people hating on it in the app store. Maybe it’s not perfect, and maybe I’ll grow to dislike it, but so far it appears to be the ONLY free application that will aggregate all of my personal data from my fitbit, add additional pieces of data that my fitbit doesn’t even monitor (BP, Pulse) and display them all in an easy to use interface. What’s to hate? If you’ve previously tried this app and dislike it, I’d recommend giving it another try. It’s worked wonders for me in the brief time I’ve used it.
