I have the free app. I just tried using the GPS traking for a walk and it worked perfectly. However the calories burned don't show up on my daily use. aamof I cannot find anywhere to review what I did once finished. What's up with this? How is it supposed to work?
You are correct that there are two versions. 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). If you have the free app, that will likely still function for you, but is no longer updated and has not been for some time. Newer features, like the GPS, are only on the newer paid version of the app.

Hi, I have the iphone app and under more info it says I have version 2.7. This is the free app that I downloaded years ago. Everything works great, but I can't find the GPS feature and the app doesn't look like the version on iTunes that is $3.99. Are there two versions now: an old, free version and a paid version? Thanks.
