I submitted the review below and within a week the percentiles were back! Not saying they did that just for me but still it was a pleasant surprise. Best feature of the old app was the ability to see your percentile ranks for the current year and all prior years. That appears to be gone. So you have to go to the last page of your leaderboard then get out your calculator, just like on the website, except with a more awkward interface. Giant step backwards!
I love some of the features of this app, but the glitches— omg. Who did they hire to write this app?! It’s super evident that development was rushed and there were no quality checks. I’m currently in the -1,892nd percentile for students 🤣because the program used my worldwide ranking instead of my student ranking to compute the progress bar. I’m having the same issue with the Tennessee leader board. Looks like there are a bunch of variable/copy paste bugs. Also the functionality is pretty pitiful. I’d like to be able to follow more than one athlete. Look at my scores from previous years. Link to athletes’ profiles from the leader board. But none of these features exist. I wanted to contact the developer directly but when I pressed “contact us” it said that my “phone not set up for email” or something to that effect. I am really excited for what this app could become but currently it really needs some TLC.
Glad there is an app this year. I downloaded this app tonight and played around with and and was impressed. The Leaderboard is fantastic and easy to use and filter to see where you really stack up. I’m excited to see this feature when the Open starts in a few weeks. I will update once the Open starts to see how well it functions with the release of each workout. So far, so great
This is a poorly designed app. There’s some functionality that is available on the app that’s not on the website and a lot on the website that’s not available on the app. The weirdest one is that on the app, when you look at a custom leaderboard it doesn’t tell you the ranking. I’m pretty sure it’s in the order of rank, but it doesn’t tell you the number. So if you’ve got your entire gym in that leaderboard you’ve gotta start counting. But that doesn’t work, because it’ll randomly glitch and move the screen up or down and you’ll lose your spot. Also, the fact that to submit your score you have to leave the app is just bizarre.
App all of a sudden stopped working. When I pull it up I keep getting a message saying “Something went wrong.. Uh Oh.” I’ve done all the updates, restarted, uninstalled & reinstalled, cleared history & cache... nothing. Update: The app is working again. Support promptly responded to my inquiry and informed me they were aware of the issue. They won me back 😊
Seems like last years app was even worse than this so people gave 5 stars but to me, a first time user, app is still crap. Hangs, crashes, freezes, doesn’t display my customerleader boards, pretty much does nothing, not sure why this app exists? Edit: Dropped one more star. App doesn’t even display the leaderboards correctly. When I scroll down below my level list glitches erases most of the list including me till I close and re open the app. There is no way to scroll down below my level on the leaderboard. Good job guys, nice “app” or should I say college project.
I participated in the games for the first time in 2017 and took last year off. What a huge improvement in all areas for the APP/web-site!!! It’s so easy to enter scores, log in, and it gives you so much more information without wasting time. Thank you for making this a fun experience!
This app has always been clunky and weird to use, but you use it for one specific purpose for a very limited time of the year so I’m not too upset about that. I am bummed percentiles went away this year and they don’t make it easy to find out the total number of participants so that I could do the calculation myself
I love this app! It’s easier access than last years crossfit app and layout is much more slick. It shows the current leaderboard and the work outs. One thing I would change is the ability to follow more than one athlete. I personally have three that I’m rooting for and it would be cool to follow all three Overall this app is solid.
After a year absence, glad to see the app back. The most important feature is the ability to enter scores, which we can’t assess until the Games starts. Another great feature of the past has been taken away - the ability to create and save custom leaderboards.
I’m a big fan of CrossFit! This app is pretty good it definitely has had stages where it’s been buggy but it is a fun way to watch how your friends are doing with the open as well as follow live events.
Why can’t I go directly to an athlete’s profile by choosing them in the Competition Leaderboard? Why is it so cumbersome to switch between men and women in the Leaderboard? It would be easier if it were designed like the Top 40 section under the Athletes tab.
Halfway through the open my leaderboard/ranking in my country/age group disappeared and a bunch of leaderboards that don’t really mean much to me started showing up. The app still shuts down for no reasons occasionally and it will only link to my profile about half the time. It is good for entering scores and the leaderboards are great except when they just disappear.
The rankings it shows me on my leaderboard do not match the scores on the website. My overall rank, rank and view leaderboard rank are all different. (Overall is showing my rank before a score was validated, rank is giving score after validation, leaderboard is show a rank as of this morning.) This is also true on the regionals ranking. It appears to not be updating consistently when new scores are validated.
Overall rank is a pretty important feature for a leaderboard app. The only way i’ve found is to count from the top down. It does show rank on the individual workouts, but not overall. I want to see how my buddies are doing within our state/gym and other custom leaderboards. The leaderboard on the website has this, and i try to stick to it when i remember, but the convenience of having an app with this basic feature would be nice. Another basic feature I’m surprised the app doesn’t have is the ability to click on a user and see their profile, like which gym they are from, how they did last year etc (which you can do on the website)
I would like to see the filter include age/age range so that the non games athlete can compare him/herself against other athletes of their age during the open. This is particularly relevant for athletes older than 60. It’s a pretty vast range these days. Two years ago the app had this feature so it’s definitely doable. Thanks for listening.
I’m a 14 year old that think the first time I saw Crossfit I ask my self what it was and I realized that is the best think that could ever happen to me I got the chance to learn this wonderful experience and I’m ready to star a part of my life here I come Crossfit games.
Keeps you updated with the leaderboard, worldwide, regional, and even your home box. Tracks all Open workouts and stats current and past years. Shows RX, scales, teen and masters instructions. And even tips to follow!
This app is poorly designed. When I view the leader board it shouldn’t go to where I placed instead it should go to the leaders and have my placement at the top with my rank. The way it’s designed now when I view the leader board it goes to my spot, then I have to scroll for days if I ever want to see the top. The website is poorly designed too. If I click on custom leaderboards it shouldn’t take me to a page that describes what a custom leader board is.
Not a very well designed app. The developers should have done more UX testing and made improvements based on how actual users want to use the app. I want to follow multiple athletes from my box, but you can only follow one person and if you follow another it bumps the first one out. Also, when looking at athletes in the leaderboard, you can only see their ranking but not their # of reps in 19.1.
Great way to see the individual/team rusts for each event as a drop down under their name, but, a search field in the athletes category so you can just look up a name and also just put a number ranking them would make it rad
Leaderboarding is a verb. Toggling through countless leaderboards comparing yourself be region, age, profession. It’s very cool to see people you know on here, then text them and talk trash. I love the open for this reason and this app is the portal into that world of comparison.
Why did they get rid of percentiles next to each workout? That’s the most important stat. Placement # doesn’t mean as much if the number of participants changed. Also, why can you only find links to video submissions if you are on google chrome. Provide the video link in app please
Like the new graphics but .. Can’t refresh it.... have to stop the app and restart to refresh leaderboard and placement stats. Can’t sort or filter leaderboard by workout. Can’t click an athlete to see profile. Been hoping it would get better every year but it doesn’t. Prefer to use pc browser which isn’t all that good either.
I like the filters but it would be even better to see it more specific. I would like to see even city or state filter. Otherwise it’s a useful app and I can see where I am in the world, country, and region.
This year’s app update for 2019 wasn’t really that good. The athlete that i followed seemed to disappear even after i tapped the +. After 19.5, the app didn’t work and displayed the “refresh” button. The custom leaderboard did not show everyone in the list. When i wanted to see the default leaderboard list according to country women; it displayed the worldwide leaderboard instead.
My favorite feature of the old app was having the percentile of the overall place and each open workout’s placement. Best tool to know how I stacked up against others as an average athlete. Also, interface is crazy busy. Looks like a desktop site.
Happy to be starting CF again after a few years away. But now that the WOD is on this app, the APP shouldn’t be so focused on just the CF games. I can only see today’s WOD. I can’t flip to previous WODs or track a previous workout. Today is a test day but I’d like to see and track a previous WOD. Can’t do that in the app as it works now.
Before it completely crashed and became unusable it was good for it’s convenience but had a couple of drawbacks when compared to the website. The biggest issue was on the leaderboard there was no ranking next to the person’s name.
Some times it shows I’m registered for the open, sometimes it doesn’t. When it doesn’t, I click on register now and it takes me to the website that shows I’m registered. 🤷🏻♂️ (iPhone X on 11.2.5 iOS update)
Super disappointed in the app. None of my info is loading (and staying) even though I’ve put it in multiple times. Maybe because to many people are trying to do the same?? It’s been a couple days, I’m hoping it’s fixed soon?? ☹️
Downloaded 2020 app iOS, twice (download, delete, download) and it is doing the same thing it did in the 2019 app, “Something went wrong” message tap refresh. Well the refresh does not work. At least the online version works. If you supply an app make sure it is working. Thanks and let’s have an awesome open.
Every year, Crossfit finds a new way to inconvenience thousands of athletes. This year was no exception. On the last day of the open, the app was unavailable. No leader board, no workouts, no profile. Just a “something went wrong” message. Tell me again why we willingly give these idiots our money every year?
I’ve become highly irritated because I cannot enjoy the games this year because this continuously malfunctions it pauses in between production and it makes it really hard for me to watch the live event please fix immediately
