AMANDANCES - I checked with the tech team about that and was told that the GPS tracking will not work on an iPod Touch.

It seems to work without wi-fi or 3 g for me.

I have use an iphone with no sim card, I got tired of paying the extra $20 a month just to have an iphone

(correction)

I'm not sure, since I'm having trouble with the app right now always trying to sync.

Does the GPS tracker require 3G or will it work on wifi? I know I've tried to use runtracker or one of those apps, and they had to have 3G to work (I don't have a smartphone-- just an ipod touch.)

The old free app is no longer being updated. The paid app has had updates and will continue to be updated. It also has some new functions, including a GPS tracker for when you walk/run outside, a nicer setup/interface, etc.

Yes, it should be in your "Purachased" apps section.

Had the free ap all this time but upgrading cleared my SP ap. I purchased the OUT OF MILK ap for grocery shopping and it did not charge me again for the re-installation, went by my E-mail and phone number...I believe it would be friendly of SP to honor past members with free ap and only charge newcomers ...just a suggestion. I am not going to pay for the ap, but hope that I get news that the ap becomes free again

We started charging for our mobile tracking apps because they require significant resources to build & maintain, but do not provide much revenue via ads (and we have to make money so that we can stay in business and support our free products)! The site is still 100% free and so is our mobile site that can be accessed on your phone's web browser (mobile.sparkpeople.com).

What happened?
They started charging a fee for it.

You can still access the site for free!
