The Straits Times Virtual Run 2020

Can my phone be tracked if Location Services is off?
If you leave it on, your phone will triangulate your exact position via GPS, wifi, mobile networks, and other device sensors. Turn it off, and your device will only use GPS to figure out where you are. Location History is the feature that keeps track of where you've been, and any addresses you type in or navigate to.

well, during uncle's trial on .MOVE. app...0.9km and forever...stuck there even uncle was on the move...

.MOVE. app kena hacked...most probably...or app developer(s)..."run" road loh...

hope not many thousands are disappointed...because we still don' t know SOLD OUT FULLY to whom...so far, we don't really know how many are real or phantom Virtual Runners...🤔

Good grief.... this event is going to be marred single-handedly by this lousy app...

To be honestly, this is not unexpected......

tried to activate the account for the past hour and finally did it after an update to the app... apparently they pushed down an update to the app hopefully to clear some bugs away....

Don't know the expense for the software development, looks like no UAT... but not sure whether passed pressure test...

Wow... The organisers are finally bothering to try and do something, after ignoring feedback for so long. How terrible of them. So glad I didnt sign up, thanks to this forum!

Agree its not unexpected.

But what's surprising is they had used the same supposedly horrible app for the Star Wars Run long back - and had received 1-star feedback on the app for the longest time...... However, till now, feedback on the app remains as bad as ever, and they still dictated it to be the one and only tracking app for ST Run.:nea:

Because it's the organizer's in-house app so they must make sure everyone uses it.

Honestly I don't see what is the point. People won't be using the app after the event ends anyway, seeing how bad it is. By insisting that the app will work just fine, they are actually making matters worse...

saga continues...

testd1712eac0b44fe8a.jpg

good luck for 175km...managed to get 6 runs sync...at different timing...shortchanged abt 500m...

say 6 runs of 10km (60km)...each run -500m x 6...(-3km)..ok lah...if 175km... good to do another 17.5km free for bonus...lol

functionally and really, the app "screws us up"...don't blame the Virtual Runner...

which stage are u? can't activate...error

which stage are u? managed to get 6 runs and then...

now is activated on race entry to participate only...the race has not started yet...

1. whether it can be "saved"...

2. whether it can capture beyond 0.3km or 0.9km which some and including uncle claim during trial testing...stop capturing distance even the when time clock continue to tick...

3. manual submissions are for those who have syn issues...for integrated trackers which were promised since STAR WARS VIRTUAL RUN SOUTHEAST ASIA 2020...and still ongoing till end of 2020...

syn.jpg

4. prepare to be "shortchanged" because of accuracy issues with .MOVE. app

5. are there others not yet known?

good luck...please report or read FB on user's issues and problems...

Glad that the app problems have been resolved!

Well... They claimed they have resolved the issues, but I still see new complains coming in from users, so not sure if problems are really solved.

before "Start" to run...Virtual Race...

let uncle screenshot latest issues...issues still had not resolved..

wat...Start Tracking button missing...likdat how can start?

yes, syn issues must be resolved...because these are seasoned participants with wearable smart devices who had been in Virtual Race or Training...and they demanded action, otherwise they will have to have to manual app with their hp with .MOVE. app...very low-tech to them...

imagine they want to do do 175km..."light/wearable", with audio "motivating"...a music app in the background whilst running....yes...high-tech to them is the norm of Virtual Experience...

and with .MOVE. settings so "simplistic" in functions which are really...crap..low-tech...

yes, not even accurate.."shortchanged"...175Km effort may land up with "after 6 runs"...apps stopped recording...

for average seasoned participant...12-18km is 1 run...imagine 100Km goes to "waste" and restart...sorry, we are not able to syn "after 6 runs"...

wat crappy app is this?

even if "kia su" and have another app to backup for manual submission...battery-draining if use on the same device...

silly right? in the first place, there should not have even any backup apps to support .MOVE. app if there had been past issues that had not been resolved months ago...right?

many had expected this...

hp apps for virtual "augmented with sound and video"...syned with their smart devices only for the run (activity) app...seemlessly..

expect TCS mobile app to return to SCSM 2020 Virtual Race...after a very successful one in 2020 London Marathon (Virtual Race)...

The worst that can happen is the distance run is not recorded at all! 

I am thinking if these issues are not resolved, the organizers will have to accept the screenshots of distances completed through emails or any other platforms. And that will be a lot for a sold out event.

    • Sorry that uncle only found out TCS NYC Marathon Virtual Race last weekend...thanks to  SMSC VR 9 - Double Up! Challenge discussion and brainstorming with @beast for the true revelation of Half Marathon VR [which is a Marketing offering]...definitely it not what that is meant to be...Explain... Uncle explored 21KM Marathon VR...what if 8KM + 13KM can be "21KM VR" Digital Badge, if yes, Buy Challenge Bundle to how lian with Medal..abuthen..Double Up! Challenge Bundle is not Single Session 21KM VR. 🤔 Of course, after the announcement of Week 14 - Grand Finale...uncle was already already embarking to the closing days of TCS NYC Marathon [Alert: Nov 1 - 2359 hours, uncle you must complete BUY MEDAL FOR RUN] SCSM 2020 has NO FM catogory...simply...Double UP! Challenge [2 Sessions] VR even if ALL 5 Categories they add up to 42KM  or More...there are merely Challenge Bundles and will never be Single Session 42KM VR. Everyone finally Wake up to the Reality. NO FM Race [Virtual]. IM Asia is a profitable Event Organizer...Marketing and Sales are at their Best...AR app meant for Biking can be "marketed" as AR app for Running. Uncle already explained the Technicality...simply a BLE [Bluetooth Apps] sending and receiving data from source - your Running POD either attached to your Shoes or even POD for Chest [Polar brand]...one is measuring the Speed of your Running, the other is measring your Heart Rate...and all these data must work coherently with a software [proprietary BLE App] on either Ipad/Ipod [latest] or Desktop with Big Screen...Yes, audio output...VoiceMap..which uncle has said Run for One Spore uses that one...at that Forum thread...Ipod is that audio output "Cheering", "You are now at Chinatown", "Garden by the Bay was first constructed...." what so Technical...AR Experience is actually Marketing Gimmick, right?..Where can I buy these fantastic products for Running? Is this a New normal experience for Covid-19 Stay Home and Exercise? Uncle already said..NO, it has been very Normal experience for those who train for IM Biking Experience because in Countries where there is a lengthy period of Winter Months...that is meant for Simulation Training for IM Biking Sessions only. So, what's the big deal for AR Experience in Running - pieces of "white elephants" now at ActiveSG Facilities...yes, booking of hours due to Covid-19 Pandemic...due to the "dark winter months of Singapore"... Really, do you need to have AR Experience to run a Virtual Race? Where is the FM Virtual Race which in every Marathon Event worldwide is hosting? What will be uncle's choice - Collection of Digital Badges for remembering SCSM Virtual Club is only a Training Base Platform. There is never a FM Medal Virtual Race. That will be a A REALITY Fact and AR Truth. Wish that SCSM 2021 will have a REAL RUN, and even if still Virtual Run...no more AR or Challenge Bundle.. Run for Medal Marathon Virtual Race like the Rest of the World Marathon Events...Give us back our FM Category Format.
    • Honestly, all Virtual Races come with the following: 1. Register and Pay First for Race Entry [Limited Entry].  2. Download the Official App to Record, Save your Activity. You have a choice to Manually Upload if you wish to use other Apps. T & C Apply. 3. Often the Official App must only be Activated prior to Race Day. So, there is no practice or if practice, if there are some technical issues, Technical Support by 3rd Party. In some, the Official App can only be used Once only - Start and Finish of VR Event. 4. Cost - Merchandize differentiation. Running Gearing (including Finisher Tee) - Option to Buy as Bundle with Terms and Conditions. Always Medals are part of the Bundle. Why, because Medal is the Metal Merchandize that is why everyone wants - Finisher. Custom-made means Production has not being made - depends on Demand and Supply. 5. Add features that are never part of Race - One promises Limited Pendant Offer at Specially for 1000 participants. Augmented Reality definitely is NOT. Exclusive only if you are accessible to the Facility with the Expensive Equipments to support in Locations except Your Home. 6. Of course, if you don't want ANY OF ALL OF THE ABOVE, then accept Consolation Prize - Digital Badge. What if you already PAY to Register from [1.], you are Entitled to Bundle already.      
    • The world comes together virtually on the streets of Singapore for the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2020 https://app.sgmarathonvc.com/en/blog/the-world-comes-together-virtually-on-the-streets-of-singapore-for-the-standard-chartered-singapore-marathon-2020 While the race has pivoted to a unique format this year, local runners can still look forward to the Grand Finale Celebration experience. Held at the Flower Field Hall in the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay, the Grand Finale Celebration will give runners the opportunity to collect their race entitlements and commemorate their race achievements against photo backdrops of their choice.   http://bit.ly/scsm2020raceentitlement  
    • I was hoping they priced it such that the SCSM finale merchandise is a compulsory base bundle of around $40-50, then each additional challenge finisher medal we can buy for +$10-15, so those who complete more challenges can choose to add and buy more medals. But SCSM organizer already show that they are greedy for money by not putting the finale sale on the VR store...and forcing people to buy and choose only 1 challenge and finisher... Guess I will just go for useless e-badges/ self-actualization up the hierarchy of needs by planning and hoping to complete as many of the challenges as I could within the period...
    • Congrats @kohpapa for finishing another WMM... wish I could sign this up earlier...
