Aprs.fi for Negative User Reviews

Just OkUsing with a Mobilinkd TNC and it’s just ok. Able to send position data, but no messaging. APRSdroid still has this app beat for features. No messaging. Can’t really recommend this app yet, as the free .fi website is more useful..Version: 1.8.1

Won’t send data to aprs-isDisappointed that is won’t send data to APRS-IS. Makes is useless for tracking assets during a public services event. I should have read the notes better I guess.Version: 1.9.2

Less featuresThere are more features on the .FI website.Version: 1.6.6

Great When It WorksLove it when it works, but it is inconsistent. Accurate about 60% of the time. Often wrong date or wrong location..Version: 2.3.1

Bait and Switch?Very disappointed, paid to purchase only to find out after doing so you need to pay an additional subscription to be able to use the app and some of its most basic functions. Seems a bit inappropriate to not clearly make this aware to purchasers. Leaves one with the feeling they’ve been duped..Version: 2.4.0

APRS-ISPaid $11.97 for software that does exactly what Google will do for you, using Google maps APRS.FI for free, only to discover that to make it useful I would now have to pay an ongoing user fee. Not impressed..Version: 2.3.1

Not what I consider APRSWasted my money on an app calling itself aprs.... that does not talk to any aprs not using aprs-fi. Packets are NOT transmitted into the aprs network so you can not be heard by hams monitoring. This fact is buried derp in the about section of the app. It should be stated plainly on the app store page. Would never had purchased it if this fact was known. Lake of this ability completely destroys all the features it has. ( like a Cadillac without wheels... all the plush in the world but the deal breaker is it cannot move).Version: 1.9.3

No messaging without subscriptionMessaging should be basic functionality. Charging a subscription after purchase for basic functionality is not appropriate. Make it clear in screen shot (not just in text) that it’s not included unless paid for as part of subscription..Version: 2.3.0

Don’t buyI am thoroughly disappointed and feel like I’ve been ripped off. You spend seven dollars for the app and then only to find out that 90% of the features that you will use, you have to buy a subscription..Version: 2.3.2

Subscription Fee?!?!?App was already expensive relative to other apps, then there’s a subscription fee in order to make it useful. Im sure its a brilliant app, but the additional fees were not expected. I probably would have passed if i realized that..Version: 2.3.0

Background location is a battery killerWith location access always on, the app my iPhone battery extremely quickly as seen in Settings/Battery. I reported this to the developer three weeks ago with no response..Version: 2.4.1

Paid subscription needed for TNC useThis looked like the perfect way to use the new Mobilinkd TNC for iOS. However to send or receive messages you have to pay a subscription. That’s right, after already paying $9.99 for the app they want another monthly or yearly subscription for what is a basic feature of APRS. Without this the Mobilinkd TNC can’t be used to send or receive messages. The screenshots on this app on the store make it appear to have this messaging functionality. You don’t discover the additional subscription until you download. Quite frustrating, it almost seems like false advertising..Version: 2.0.4

AprsIt's rubbish it does nothing 5 pound waisted,don't bye it save your money.Version: 1.6.1

Almost...The app has less features then the website that does not cost anything to use. Not money well spent..Version: 1.6.5

Just use the website.Not worth $7 only to have to also pay the subscription for the “high performance” software TNC. A tad greedy in my opinion. Either make the app free and charge a subscription for the additional features or just charge for the app..Version: 2.3.2

Only works with WiFiThis is not the app for someone looking for communications when the grid goes down. This app does it work without internet or cell connectivity. Extremely disappointed..Version: 2.3.0

Beacon Settings Needs to Be BetterAt first glance, the app looks pretty good. Really liked it. After time and considerable usage, not so good. I started using app because radio beacons are unreliable in my area. I needed a more consistent result. This app is not it. The controls for beaconing is fixed set to a min beacon of every 5 minutes as the fasted rate you can get. Any faster is up to the app with no insight to how it chooses to beacon. It could be 30 seconds or it could be 5 minutes. I found it taking 4 to 5 minutes between beacons. At 40 MPH, this means the beacons are as far as 2 to 3 miles off. Not useful for me. I need last known position to be accurate to hundreds of feet while traveling. Not miles. I went back to radio where I control the beacon rate which makes sense for speed and accuracy..Version: 2.4.1

Please add messagingThe app works flawlessly! However, not being able to send messages when using a Mobilinkd TNC is very frustrating. I would give it 5 stars but without messaging built in the app I can only give it 3..Version: 1.9.3

BuggyIt's a cool app .., if it wasn't so buggy, freezing between screens , app closes for whatever reason, locked on settings screen and couldn't get out no matter what I did , had to delete and download again, and all for 6$ ! Not worth it , don't do it ... Take your 6$ and buy a coffee or 2 and a snack ..better deal ...Version: 1.1.0

READ ONLYAlthough this has the best user interface for iPhone APRS apps, it’s functionality is critically limited. What you find only AFTER purchasing is that the app ONLY reads data from the APRS internet database. It will NOT broadcast your position. It also lacks interface capabilities for Ham Radio. It’s fine if you want to track others, but there’s no way to interact with others..Version: 1.6.6
