No good for following map
charlieboy1991 on 2020-07-09
This app is DANGEROUS when using for map following while cycling - which is one of the features it claims to have. I don’t normally write reviews but was so shocked I felt I had to. You can set a route right enough (after I had to look on google maps simultaneously to tell whether the roads were small lanes or dual carriageways). Once I had the route set I was excited to set off. Initially the app kept letting my phone lock but I figured out how to stop that from within the app. The thing that makes this app dangerous- it does not follow your location and re-centre the screen or give step by step directions it is just a line on a map with your location - you have to constantly move the map to find where you are. Trying to do this while cycling along this is truly DANGEROUS and should not be allowed to be marketed as such. I’m sure this app is good for recording activity if you know where you’re going but as a route following app it is truly awful. Subscription cancelled same day.
Sooooo many adverts

All disguised as competitions or clubs. And I pay for them!! Nuts. This is going to drive me away from the paid service. Previous post - 4 stars: I am trying the ‘full fat’ version and while I don’t see the increased benefit that warrants the monthly/cheaper annual cost, it is still my go-to post ride app. Online: Heat maps are useful though the route builder is still very simple. Routes cannot be easily amended which necessitates deleting and starting again from your last useable point. Not a deal breaker but not worth the subscription if you are used to another route builder. I will give it a little more time and a few more rides to see... (Oh, and iPad version...! Just turn your head/stop typing and change the iPad to portrait mode... nuts for a paid service)
Cyclemeter

One star for putting my recorded efforts behind a paywall. Shame on you for acting like a bunch of crack dealers extorting money out of your client base. I have switched to Cyclemeter. Cyclemeter connects to my 3x Bluetooth sensors (HR monitor, cadence and speed sensors) no problem - something Strava has never been able to do before they dropped Bluetooth connectivity last October. It is also less taxing on battery life than Strava for recording rides. Cyclemeter shares the ride data to my Strava so I can still share with my friends. Since the new paywall introduction which is poor value for money imho, Cyclemeter has become my go to app for recording my rides. At £9 for the year Cyclemeter presents much better value for money than Strava.
Needs more

I’m happy with the approach strava has taken to reward its paying users with a better service and features as opposed to adverts popping up on the feeds. I’ve always been happy to pay for the premium when considering how much I use the app. The features are already getting better, I appreciate the fitness and freshness on the app, as well as weekly intensities and access to the training log. Maybe interstate the power curve next and allow this analysis for individual rides even? I’d like to see a future planning mechanism built in the App for rides coming up, like a training planner. This could link to other 3rd parties like Peaks or TR, but this also allow the user to manually put in plans so not rely on 3rd parties
Customer support non existent
TommyScooper on 2020-07-09
I like the Strava app. I used the free trial as a someone new to cycling and really got into using it regularly, so when the free trial ended I was happy to pay the annual subscription. But while the App Store, my Apple account, and even my bank account says I’ve paid for the year, the Strava app has switched to the free version with limited features. I’ve tried multiple times to contact Strava via the app and the support website and haven’t heard a thing in nearly two weeks. I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about the loss of free features to the paid service recently as Strava tries to become profitable, maybe they should put some of that money towards support, because it’s some of the worst I’ve come across.
Shame

I’ve been using strava since 2012 and honestly can’t fault the app itself apart from when they hangs the order of the feed. However since they have locked all our data behind the paywall it is no better than any of the other free options available. I don’t have a problem in paying a subscription as I will use it however I have 4 people in my house who use it and only one pay check. If it was £10 per year to be able to see leaderboards and segments I would pay it. As it stands it will be approx £200 a year for my household and that’s if I pay in one lump. I would thing that most people think the same and a lot of small subscription would be better than a few big ones.
Glad I never paid

As the title suggests, very happy I didn’t pay for this app. I started running with Nike Running App with no issues and then it was suggested I try Strava. Both myself and my wife have this app, we run together and start the app at the same time, we run the same route at the same pace - other than I usually run flat out for the last 400 metres, where as my wife will stay at the same pace, we both have the same phone, with the same network and both run 5k. Yet our Strava apps will show a difference of 500 metres out which is usually mine, making my time/pace look worse than it is. Sticking to Nike Running App which was more accurate.
Not bad...

Lots of annoying bugs
crjohnson1981 on 2020-07-09
Ok so after my previous bad reviews about being forced to pay for this product just so I can see how I fair on my segments during the last few days when I click on my small club (5members) to see my ranking in that club it shows all riders. Also live segments needs work. If you start a segment and go off that segment route, it carries on displaying the time as if you were on that segment sometimes not displaying new segments. There are many more bugs. For a product with this price point I don’t expect to see them. Luckily I took a free trial which I will cancel at the end of the month (unless improvements are made)
Good but not perfect
Tiger Fred on 2020-07-09
Let me start by saying I am in no way an athlete - I just want a simple to use app which will track my walks as I try (emphasis on try) to get a bit fitter and loose weight. In this respect Strava does what I want and on the face of it does it well. What stops me giving 5 stars is that despite the tracking seeming to be very accurate, even showing where I've crossed roads where the footway has changed sides, it is inconsistent. I do the same route every day, yet according to the app the distance covered varies by as much as 130m which, considering I only do a couple of miles, is a significant amount.
