Comments and Reviews from users:

Vicki Leal: “I was very happy to find my priority item on sale, along with a promo, if I added more items to reach the minimum requirement. I tried to buy 2 more bags of cat food, but try as I may it would not let me choose more than 4 bags. I was forced to add another cat litter and a toy to reach the target amount, when all I really wanted was 2 more bags of cat food : ( Also, the sale price on the cat food is scheduled to end soon. I wasted a LOT of time trying to find a way to make this work!” – 3/5 in Play Store

M0mentai: “I have been using the service for a while and haven't had issues except recently. I don't appreciate having my auto ship changed twice and given 10% off a future order that pretty much just covers the shipping fee I am made to pay due to failure to supply. The item is a medical item, and i can understand failure to stock. But twice is not fair over the course of a couple of months.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Spuds6047: “Love the tracking, follow along exercises, and other features but I gave it low stars because the integration with my Fitbit is far from accurate. I have to keep logging out and back in to get it to update correctly. But even then, the next day it will change previous days totals. Very frustrating when it gives you a couch icon and states you didn't reach your daily goal when, in fact, according to Fitbit you did!!” – 3/5 in Play Store

Connie Lippenholz: “Buyer beware, they don't count months by the date you subscribe, but I guess by 30 day increments? I subscribed Mar 10 and it renewed on Jun 8 without any notice. Be sure to read your receipt carefully, find the renewal date hidden in the middle, and go online to turn on the 3-day renewal notice. I told their support it is deceptive to not have the renewal date more obvious, to not use calendar months, and not have the notification set as a default, so hopefully they'll make some changes.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Its a fun app, but it could be better to be more effective - the clicking needs to be louder and more realistic. I have to add an external bridge, making the app clicker useless. Cost - $110/yr is too expensive for an impersonal app. Trainer feedback is already given in the free version, and that's the only personal aspect. Suggestions/improvements - allow users to record without having to hold down the button. Improve social aspect of the app. I can invite friends, but not share their journey.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Lissette Buckley: “It is a wonderful app. Now if the app have some training video for visual learners that would be great or guest speakers, articles, dog treat recipes, and more. My favorite part is how interactive the app; for example, the different competitions, games, and tricks. My only issue is that that the app used to have an option for a lifetime membership. I tried to sign up for it again and I did not see it anymore.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “I absolutely LOVE Rover! I have been a certified dog walker through Rover for a little over a year. The app is frequently updated and new features seem to be added regularly. My only 'complaint' is that it's difficult to keep my calendar updated while traveling. I imagine most people have a fixed address so the current system is probably sufficient. I travel between three different cities regularly and find it difficult to show when and where I will be available for 'hire'.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Pros: it's easy to find pet sitters, dog walkers, etc. near you, filter by price, see ratings, pay & book through app. Cons: app is very clunky. Currently it's non-intuitive & difficult to change pet info (can't seem to find an option to change emergency contact info?) and sometimes yoi get stuck in a search where you can't easily change your options? Bugs + errors abound.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Cons Earnings are relatively low, may not be available in all countries, requires a lot of walking to earn significant amounts.

Comments and Reviews from users:

Larry Swiston: “Gonna be honest, I thought this app was gonna suck. It doesn't. It is relatively well put together and works well... for the most part. My one gripe is that you can get certain challenges to validate an exact number of steps. The problem cones from the fact that the app doesn't update your steps number anywhere near as often as it should, making landing on an exact number almost impossible. Unless these challenges are changed or made easier (say validate within a certain range).” – 4/5 in Play Store

Hubert Velasquez: “Meh. I regularly do or do close to 200 coins a day. 1000 coins gets you 0.50 cents. So do the math, in ten days you can make a dollar just by walking. The trouble is the app resets itself after a period of you don't claim it and it also does not track every step or appears not to give more coins if you over 20000 steps a day. Not really the best app to earn money walking, even with the little games and offers they give you does it seem worth the hassle.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Brittney Fentress: “I've been able to book walks successfully, chat message with walkers and trainers, and view articles. I've experienced multiple technical issues. 1) virtual training audio very poor quality. Trainer and I had to put the speakers up to our ears to hear each other, and therefore couldn't do visual training. 2) after giving the walker/trainer a rating and tip, the app prompted me to go through the same rating and tip screens again. Once, I was sent through the rating and tip screen 3 times.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “It's a nice little motivation to get moving. Of course it takes awhile to reach $10 but I think of the reward as a little bonus on the road to getting get fit. For me it has helped give a little push to walk and exercise more and see the points go up. I was especially glad when they synced with Samsung which is an app I use most... that helped me get more points.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I like the app, getting paid to be healthier. I don't like how it doesnt sync all my activities from Samsung Health. I emailed them 3 times in last 2 weeks and got no reply. I finally got enough points for my first $10 reward today! I am updating my review from last year. The app is much better now, it syncs pretty much daily and my points are adding up much more quickly.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “It's a great way for pet lovers to connect but some features of the app are horrible. One cannot update dates/ night after booking. One may require extending at times. The selection criteria for booking a job is not properly synched. For cat sitting, the only option I could select for hosting the cat was to select the one where I was supposed to walk a dog n upload pictures of dog walking and pooping. Even distance calibration was incorrect as I never took the cat out. Some specs can be fixed” – 3/5 in Play Store

Mike Pajota: “Works differently on the app versus on a computer. Easier on the app. You'll still need some time to get acquanted with the app. Needs way better notification. Once in a while I'll get notified of a potential guest, mostly I have to check a few times a day. Probably lost some clients due to long response time because I wasn't notified quickly on my phone or not at all.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “this first version of the app.has lots of problems but in the main the problem is loss of functionality from the browser version. no maps, no selectable filters. it slows and frustrates the user experience and focuses in the social profile aspect which is less useful. app makers: sitters and owners will communicate via whatsapp, you don't need to worry about messaging. what we need is simpler searching. god the sheer time a spreadsheet would save. just let us see the dates and a map. thanks” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Overall, it's a great app, works very well, and has a solid user interface. I have noticed that notifications from the app are very inconsistent, and I'm usually seeing invites and message notifications in my email but never on my phone. But this is a pretty minor detail since I check my email on my phone frequently. For users who don't check their emails often, some notifications could slip through the cracks.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I use this app whenever I am walking, running, biking or hiking. I love being able to do some good while spending time with my pup! There are a few improvements that I think would enhance it and make it much better. 1. Cannot use the Notification that shows the app is being used for anything 2. Cannot use the camera without the session ending 3. Would love to know how much my chosen shelter/rescue has received, either historically or real-time 4. More detail when a session is shared via facebook, i.e. length/time of session, map and/or include photos, if we could take them during a session. (last year it used to include the mileage at least, now not even that is shared) That's all I can think of right now. I don't mind the ads as then I don't have to pay but also I don't like to have to sit thru too many in order to share a session or whatever. :)” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Have loved the app for years ! The GPS was spot on within feet of my walk. Got a forced new version several days ago - the GPS now has us zooming straight-line many miles away, then zig-zaging over houses, going to all sorts of places I am nowhere near. My .88 mile walk to the park across the street on the old version now says I go from 2.79 miles to over 12 miles on the same path. It thinks I am exceeding 30mph. They better fix it quick. The data WFAD now provides is worthless.” – 2/5 in Play Store

And if you can add pictures from your camera roll that would be an awesome instead of having to take live pictures. Would also be great if the notes that are written can also be shared through the shareable link.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I've been using Dog Walk approx 18 months. In that time it has been brilliant except the past few months where, on 4 occasions (that I have noticed), the tracking has failed. The timer has continued without disruption. When I have noticed the tracking has stopped (or added in routes not taken) I have tested my phone's Maps app and this has worked fine.

Christina Dunington: “Excellent way for people with dogs to schedule private off leash time with people with land. App is excellent for scheduling, paying, and getting refunds. I have 2 teeny complaints: 1. The cancel reservation option is not with the modify options (where my brain wants it to be), you have to scroll around a bit to find it. 2. The app charges in USD, and I am in Cananda, using Canadian sites.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Sandra: “The concept is great, and I love what they offer, but they need to hire a better development team. I'd utilize Sniffspot more often if the app AND the website weren't so hopelessly slow and buggy. I get so frustrated with trying to use the platforms that I just give up and take my dogs on leashed hikes instead. I've been using Sniffspot on-and-off for over a year, and I have seen zero improvements.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “I use it as a dog walker and it's easy and convenient. I just really wish you can upload gifs and videos to client messages. Would be a nice touch to include them with our updates for the dog parents. Edit after new update: Put the send and photo buttons back together PLEASE IT DRIVES ME CRAZY. I keep hitting save when uploading a photo.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “This app is fabulous. I've been using it for about a month now and it really makes life easier when you work with a team of pet sitters. Functionality is great, haven't had a bug yet. A few feature requests: for employees who don't have access to editing a client's profile, a way to make your own notes for each client/pet instead of having to ask the boss to do it and a place to list all employees' contact info/phone number for easy access.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Rachel Moss: “The service is good - just wrapped up a trip where my cats were taken care of by such a great sitter. However, the app is complete trash. It gives you this spinning cat of death that freezes everything for no reason, right in the middle of doing absolutely everything. Trying to send messages is torture. Then it'll just quit. I was right in the middle of writing my sitter's review and it crashed on me, prompting this review. Loved my sitter but not sure I can stomach the app again.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Cecilia Chung: “So far, meowtel has been great to me! I'm a catsitter in Jersey city and I've gotten several casting requests and have very few complaints. They are always quick to contact you and solve your questions or issues. The commission rate is a bit high, specially for new clients (as it decreases over time with repeat customers, based on reservation $ amount), but I understand that they need to cover their costs and make money too.” – 5/5 in Play Store
