I'm not sure that will be added, but I have passed along the rest of your feedback.

Thank you!

Thank you, Denise.

I think as we become even more app-dependent, we are missing out on a large audience of users who solely use the Mobile App. It's the trend and I don't think we are going to see that change any time soon.

There's so much great stuff on the Spark website, and there isn't even a link to take the mobile users to it. That alone would be a huge improvement.

I would imagine the aim of the App is to give the user an experience that's somewhat similar to other social media platforms, and if you look at Facebook, there is access to the user's "groups" on the profile page.

I know there is a cost involved and programming, etc. But, in the meantime, could I suggest a simple link to Sparkpeople.com be added?

That would at least give Mobile App users quick access to the website. Without even just a link to the website, Spark is missing out on a huge opportunity to reach a large part of society who now uses Apps as their sole means of internet use. And Mobile Users are missing out on the tremendous amount of resources that are found only on the website.

Thank you for your response and for passing along my suggestions.

Sorry, those are not in the app, but I'll pass along the feedback to the team. However, teams can be accessed through the desktop or mobile site. So, if someone is on their mobile device, while they aren't in the app, they can use their browser and go to SparkPeople.com, which should send them to the mobile site and SparkTeams can be found there.

Am I correct in that there are no links to the Teams on the Mobile App? I've looked and I can't find anything.

I would think it would be on the "MySpark" page, under "Profile", where it shows our followers/followees, etc.

I have seen a drastic reduction in activity in the team and I have a feeling that since many people now access Spark via the Mobile App and not desktop, the teams will fall to the wayside.

New users for Spark via the Mobile App won't even know the Teams exist.

I feel that Teams are a valuable resource here on Spark and so many people have gotten support and motivation from them.

Can Spark look into adding links to the Teams to the Mobile App?

If it's already there, please tell me how to find it. I'll be embarrassed, but I'll get over it. emoticon
