I’ve been using Strava app since 2012. It was an incredible simple program then but an awesome innovation to what motivates athletes (a race every day). At that time it was social but not intrusive. It allowed you to see other people if you knew there name by searching. Now it post people recommended by other friend’s connections, sort of the same algorithm as Facebook. It clutters the screen on the app. It is annoying to delete the suggestion just to have it show up again. If I wanted Facebook, I would use that instead Some people may request that feature but my friends agree it is annoying as well. The ability to add gear is not available on the app. I cannot figure out why.
I have a new challenge for the Strava developers.... fix the 3 year old bug where multiple entries are added to Apple Health for each Strava activity!
The pulsing Record Button is annoying. Either change it back to white color or please don’t pulse it.
I have tried a couple of running apps to track my distance & pace. After using Strava and almost every workout reporting a straight line thru the route, missing segments from my route, and/or incorrect distance/pace I am not willing to pay for this app. I really wanted to like this app...the challenges are cool but the main reason I want the app doesn’t work correctly. Thumbs down.
Don’t bother wasting your time contacting their support team because they won’t reply to you. You’ll only talk to a bot, I’m pretty sure they don’t have actual support agents. The actual functionality of the app is questionable at best. Definitely don’t pay for anything from these guys. I am honesty surprised this is still on the AppStore.
Please be aware that this app is not free. You have a 30 days trial at which your account will be debited.
Having Strava in the background while playing music or switching apps will cause it to stop recording your GPS and thus harshly skew your run times. Updated to the latest version yet still having this issue
I feel like the app auto pauses pretty often when I’m running, which messes up my distance and pace. Then the last run I did, it said I did 3.15 miles, then I save the workout and it says I did 2.52. Nothing major but the only reason I use the running portion is for the distance and pace, nothing fancy. Would just be nice to iron those things out.
Same problems and they come and go, enjoyed the app more when Strava was just a startup. Battery problems on AppleWatch in comparison, cal burn changes for no reason, heart rate gets lost on long rides... just urghhh 🤢 Can’t wait until another startup runs this over...
In general I like the app, but there are some Annoying bugs, most annoying is the Watch app pauses my run as soon as I start a run, an option for a 3 second delay to starting my run on the watch would also be nice. Auto Pause in general on the watch is flaky and inconsistent not that I use pause much but when you have to wait for traffic it often doesn’t pause or it doesn’t resume.
