Sorry, but the web portal is unusable for me as of right now. I gave it a first test today, for a couple of hours, but I need to switch back to Dropbox.
The sync just isn't working, not between web and web (various browsers on various devices), and not between web and my iPads (3 various iPads). All I'm getting are endless spinning wheels in the middle of the screen, and data that I entered on the web get lost or randomly overwritten all the time.
After I make edits on the web, am I supposed to push the syncing button manually every time? OK, but then all I'm getting is the endless spinning wheel in the middle of the screen – for 10, 15, or 20 minutes. Nothing is happening, and data does not get synced, and entered data may even get lost or overwritten. The same thing on all three iPads.
Apart from the non-working syncing, there are other awkward aspects of the web portal:
- No custom background picture is possible. (A big deal, for me.)
- US date format is enforced, including the awkward "AM". I don't want that. (Even after you, say, switch to the German interface, the US date format is still enforced, which is absurd. After all, "AM", "PM", etc., are never used in continental Europe.) The date format choice for the CSV file should also apply to the web interface.
- On the iPad, after an activity is ended and a new activity is started, it automatically starts with the time when the previous activity ended. That's very handy. Not so on the web: the new activity always starts with the current time, which is very inconvenient.
- I'd like to see an "export to PDF" option for the piecharts on the web as well.
If these issues are resolved, I'll be happy to purchase an annual subscription. Mostly, though, I'd welcome an Android version of ATracker with cross-platform syncing (I ditched the iPhone last September after 7 years). Thank you!
