I’ve noticed that the iOS app will frequently not have up to date data when I open it. When that occurs I check the sync status under settings and it will say that it has not synced in something like 15 hours despite auto sync being enabled and me having a functioning high speed internet connection.
If I try pulling down on a list to force a sync that way (the most convenient way that doesn’t require me to constantly tap through settings to force a sync) the wheel will spin and never sync. Eventually the wheel will stop and the app will just kind of sit there with a stopped wheel at the top of the list and no sync occurring. If I force quit the app and open it then it immediately auto syncs and my data is up to date.
Obviously having to do that or tap into settings to force a sync every time I need to execute something is a huge pain. I haven’t been able to test all the angles on how to reproduce this (still don’t know if tapping through to settings to force a sync works when this occurs) but I will keep testing as I see it occur and update this post with details.
I’ve been tracking this throughout the day and the iOS app constantly fails to sync unless I force quit the app. If I go into the sync settings and manually force a normal sync it just sits and stalls on the “syncing” dialog and never finishes just like with the progress wheel does when I pull down on a list. So far the only way to reproduce it I’ve found is that it’s always taken more than ~10 minutes in the background before the sync starts to fail, and that it will always fail after ~2 hours in the background.
In the meantime while I wait for a response from a dev, I’ve noticed some other iOS bugs that I’m taking note of to report and they’ve given me some pause about how well iOS is supported for Everdo. Having a fully functional iOS app is crucial for me and I’m getting a little anxiety about whether or not this is really going to be the right platform for me, can any end users reading this speak to the general stability and bug status of the iOS app?
