Endomondo used to be a singular priced upfront paid app with no subscription fee, twice. During the first restructuring, the app was changed on the store, leaving out the people who had paid originally, to then require them to pay again for the new app. After this happened, the app changed again to be free-to-play, dropping features that paying customers had paid for and locking them behind a monthly pay wall. So not only did long time users who paid for the app get ripped off once, if they had paid for the newer paid app, they got ripped off again when the app went free-to-play. This is not a great track record for the service, leaving to question, when is the next restructuring going to happen that may potentially take the money of paying customers without delivering the service promised.

If you are using both intervals and audio stats, and then happen to occur at the same time, the stats are announced first, and then your interval announcement after. You end up starting your interval late, even though it's tracking that interval already. See More
While Lark recognizes simple dishes like pasta and understands various vegetables, cuisines like Chinese and Indian won't have any dishes that get recognized by Lark. Users will have to resort to trying to fit their meals into cookie cutter ingredients and the closest substitute. See More
Many users have mentioned that while the screen is off the app missed recording most of the steps (50-70% of the steps were missed). Obviously this isn't great, as it provides an inaccurate step or drains your battery by keeping the screen on continuously. See More
Patreon allows creators to put their work out for free, whilst receiving funding from those who wish to support their efforts. This ensures that they can use this funding to offset their overheads and thus create better content, without excluding those of their fans without a strong income. Their patrons are people who believe in the creator's works, and have enough expendable income to put a small amount aside towards the creator's projects. See More
