Aprs.fi for Negative User Reviews

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

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

SoniI purchased this app thinking it was a good tool for a Ham Radio Operator , it has no features that will help a Ham in searching locations of other Hams . Very poor app..Version: 1.6.6

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

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

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

OkI don’t understand why most online apps are willing to transmit or post your location on other websites and yet this one, the most expensive one will not let you send messages or post your location on other APRS sites! Waste of money!.Version: 1.6.6

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
