Tracker Android App -- sad.face.

Saturday, February 09, 2013

Quick blog:

I recently had a problem with my phone and had to get it replaced. As I went to re-download my favorite apps, including the Spark People tracker, I found out that it is no longer free!!


I guess that I will no longer use the app since I only really used it to scan my barcodes and add my foods to my tracker. I guess I will just have to wait until I am near a computer.

I am just upset about this because the whole spark people program is online for free, but we have to pay $3.99 for an app?

I get that they want to make money to keep the site going, but if this site is truly about keeping us healthy and etc. etc. why would they charge for a tool for their own FREE program??

I wish I could just walk away and find another site to use, but I would miss all of my spark friends.

Yes, this has upset me this much.

    I stopped using the app when I had problems and never looked back. I use the browser, instead.

    The problem with buying it now is that it doesn't transfer to a new phone. $4 is a lot to spend (for me) on an app when I am upgrading my phone August 1st!

    On your new phone, use the browser and go to www.spark

    Save it as a favorite.

    It isn't an app but you can use the website on your phone just like from your laptop. At least its free!!!

    I have an android tablet and that is how I use spark as well the app on my iPhone which is free.

    Don't leave us!!!!!!!!
