Love this app..
I have been using this app for over a year now. I love that my walking my dogs or other dogs is benefiting a shelter that I support. I also am a Dog walker and I find it beneficial to the owners of the dogs that I walk to see an actual map of our walk. I have experienced the app just shutting down and not having recorded the entire walk. Which can be frustrating. Another concern is that there is no information given that I can find on what or when my shelter or any other shelter receives from WalkForADog. I like to know how my local shelter is benefiting from my walking and how other shelters are doing. Also if there are others that are walking for the same shelter.
I love this app for keeping track of my walks with my dog. It keeps me cognizant of the amount of exercise he is or isn’t getting. Unfortunately, my walks don’t register distance and speed about 1 out of 4 walks. It’s frustrating and I’ve given up on it a few times. I imagine if they’re having a hard time with user retention because of this. It’s a shame.
Current version is buggy
Previous version had been crashing a lot, losing me miles worth of tracking per week, so uninstalled it. Saw a new version was available, so downloaded it. This version forces me to re-register, except registration doesn’t seem to currently work. It took 4 tries to even get the registration email, and now the app won’t recognize that I clicked through the link in the email and registered.
