Ratings and Reviews
One glaring UX issue
As someone who is NOT running, downloaded the app to track and support friends, there is one glaring issue. When is the marathon?! There is NOWHERE on the app clearly saying this. There is an app icon with the number 4 on it. Is that an icon or is that the actual date? Too easy to miss it. Look at Race Week - there is no mention of the actual marathon on Sat and Sun. Look at Race Day - no date mentioned?!
Sure, go to the website. There is a countdown clock. The media ads say it’s Sun. My running friends tell me when it is. But the site and the app itself does a terrible job conveying this date. I shouldn’t have to come to the site, use the app, then look at other 3P items to try and implicitly understand when the race is.
Clunky and Crashy
I got this app to track my runner and create cheer cards for her. The tracking works ok, but requires I sit by and regularly refresh the screen. Until she finished. I have gotten about 40 notifications since she finished: the same two notifications coming through over and over, telling me what time she had when she finished and what time she left the park. Another came in as I’m typing this. Ironic and annoying.
The cheer cards? They’re adorable & fun-but creating them is so challenging. It crashes almost every time. This app will be fantastic for creating cheer cards next year if they fix the clunky screen and the bugs causing the crashes.
The cheer card feature is a bit clunky and freezing at the last frame. It is completely non responsive. Only option is to exit after several tries I’m forced to give up. I’ve happily used this app for the past several marathons. Please fix this soon! I love the cheer cards and so do the runners! Thanks
