Looks beautiful but data privacy is my main concern, health kit exists for a reason, not sure why you need to pull my data out of there and upload it to your servers in addition to wiring up Facebook as a requirement also.
Some people will prefer to just keep things on their device and don't want to use cloud services. But others may want the benefits of smarter and more centralized data, like being able to share with friends or see it on a computer, in which case something like Gyroscope will be more useful. Of course it is up to you which option you are more comfortable with. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns about how it works.
We've been working on this app for over a year, and now it is finally available for people to try out! You can get in with the invite code: "designers"
Powered by React Native (the animations can be a bit laggy sometimes, but overall it work quite well)
Special thanks to the legendary Shane Mielke for helping with some of the design :)
I don't use fitness trackers and don't even wear a watch, but the design of you app is so attractive that I want to try it out. I'll just wait a bit longer for the next Apple watch.
Same feeling here. Unfortunately the need to login with facebook means that when other ways are available, I'll probably already forgot about this :/
Yeah I don't personally use Facebook and don't mind spending some time of my day signing up for something I think is worthwhile. Much like other products that I end up signing up to email newsletters for updates/launches, I have long forgotten about it and found a replacement.
I always wanted to continue using Gyroscope. But since I closed/deactivated my facebook it is not possible. Excited to try it out when I can actually do it.
Thanks! It's on our list to do eventually.
The design is really beautiful! Great job, Anand. :)
One technical question, is the app fully React Native or does it have some native areas too?
Thanks. The UI is mostly react native, but many of the things behind the scenes are native like the healthkit uploading and the photo processing.
Some of the important components like the graphs and maps are actually webviews that use our web implementation, the tools for doing the vector graphs in react native are not quite as good as on the web.
Some React Native features like Hot Reload have been really useful during development and make it feel a lot more like building for the web in terms of speed and process.
