iOS App Feedback

How can we improve the mobile experience?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

      In the latest app updates, we’ve added the ability to share weigh-ins to all games. As for activity, this isn’t something we offer on web or mobile at this time, however it’s in the backlog to be added at some time.

    • Make it easier to see how much you need to lose

      I have had to write down my starting weights and target weights, should be easier to see all the info on where you started, how much you need to lose, and the target amount, target date etc. Especially if you are doing multiple bets, should be a quick summary of all this info on the main page when you log in.

      • I would like my wireless scale to link with the app

        I have a Fitbit Aria and some friends have a Withings wireless scale. I would like it to automatically link up with the app. We should be able to verify with more elaborate starting and ending procedures, and use the automatic syncing for the in between weigh-ins.

            Thanks for your feedback! We are looking to include this feature in an upcoming release.

          • Easily let us connect with friends on your app. I signed up for a public diet bet but can't find my friend

            I want to be able to easily connect with friends on this app. On my phone, there is no easy way to do this other than search through the 5000 people participating in public diet bet, really? Come on that's a no brained, please fix that.

            • Allow us to actually invite

              As it stands my mobile app does not allow me to invite friends through the app but rather just do a Facebook or twitter post which does not count towards the MVP status.

              If this capability already exists please let me know how to do it.

                We couldn’t agree more! This functionality is on the list for a future release.

              • Actual weight displayed for ourselves

                Show start, current and goal weight as well as the actual dates for each game as it's done on the website. It's nice to have the weight loss to go with how many days are left as it currently is on the mobile version, but some of us are more visual and it helps to see our actual numbers. And dates are important for people playing multiple games. Thanks!

                    Hi there! Thanks so much for your feedback! We are looking to add additional devices (Garmin is at the top of the list!) as quickly as we can however we do not have an exact timeline for any new devices right now. Thanks for your patience in this matter!

                  • App Glitch with Photo rotating on their own

                    There is a glitch in posting photos. Every time I post a photo through the iOS app, the app will rotate the photo. My weigh in photos were square and they were rotated counterclockwise. I posted a standard photo that was portrait and the app rotated the same way. I accessed my photos through the app. Should I take my photos WITH the app?

                    • Integrate a self-timer countdown for taking pictures inside the app

                      Add a countdown timer to the app for taking a copy of your weigh in photos. I had to download a separate app to do this and a work around to then upload from the camera roll. Would be much easier if you had a countdown option inside the app.

                          Thanks for the feedback. We’re currently working on a new design where users will land on a progress dashboard and have quick access to all their active games. We’re very excited about this update, so keep an eye out for updates in the coming months.

                        • Develop an API

                          With an API you would enable third party developers to build apps for other mobile platforms like Windows Phone and Windows 8, as well as apps that provide a different view into a game (i.e. provide more statistical insight than you offer).

                          Since it seems you guys are not committed to building apps beyond Apple products, this would be a great way to expand your reach onto other platforms without the need to commit internal resources. Ultimately, you guys benefit from the APIs of other services like Runkeeper and Fitbit so maybe it's time to give back.

                            Joe,

                            Thanks for the feedback. Definitely a fan of this. While an API isn’t in the near-term roadmap, we already have an Android app in the works along with a revamped iOS build that fixes and improves a ton of the functionality.

                            I’ll add the API to the queue for review as that would be incredible and is just a matter of time.

                            Thanks for the feedback,
                            Mike

                          • Please add a "resubmit" button to your iPhone App

                            Users in my games report problems with weigh-ins on the iPhone. Allowing them to resubmit photos from the app versus having to go to the PC would help them.

                            This was an idea suggested by one of the frustrated users.

                            • Update the iPhone app

                              So that when we go to settings and it shows our active games we can change the order of them. I'd like mine to be in order of the finishing date. Since I do the max of 5 at a time, it would just organize it better for me.

                              • Would like the ability to add a current status on your name so that people could see what you are communicating without scrolling comments

                                So if you had a status like - spending weekend on vacation, or running marathon this weekend etc, people could continue to see that by your name if they scrolled the list of players. You could scroll up and down and see what people last said, click on them to see more of what they said.

                                  Would like to see which diets are doing particular types of diets - Jenny Craig, Weight Waters, FastDiet, Atkins etc, so that we could see if any particular group is doing better, get advice from people in the same diet, talk about changing strategies etc.

                                    I appreciate that my actual weight is not displayed to other players in the game. I do wish that DietBet had a feature like My Fitness Pal where a simple four digit security code must be entered each time the app is opened to protect the private information like user weight from being viewed.

                                    For some reason every time I open the DietBet app my password is already displayed and anyone picking up my phone needs only to tap the log in button and my weight and other personal information is easily available.

                                    I have to enter my 'Apple ID'…

                                      The new version makes me not want to use the app because it's too hard to see.

                                        Make a mobile website in addition to your regular one. This would be useful for all of the non-Apple people to be able to still use our smartphones.

                                        • Make it easier to like stuff

                                          The comments have a tiny little "like", could make the touch points larger for mobile. Would also like some other stuff like "Me too!", or other emotions that could be communicated with just tapping on an emotion or affinity.
