3 days no data 2/5
By Sarah Liora
I loved this app. I work in different locations and being very ADHD I sometimes forget to log when and where I was. I signed up for the paid version so I could search for location. All great until yesterday when I went to look up my location 3 hours previously. I got a message that I had no data for the last several days because of an IOS positioning issue. this turns into just an interesting app not a useful one if I can’t depend on it to be tracking me. I didn’t have notifications on so I don’t know if it would have notified me sooner.
Stopped tracking location 1/5
With iOS 13 release, stopped tracking location.
Stopped working 1/5
Right after loading the latest IOS software. Too bad! Very disappointing.
Please fix!!! 1/5
By Zendaya K
I used to love this app! It tracked every location perfectly until the iOS 13 update.
I’ve been using this app for about 3 months and it has helped me keep track of work hours, every place that I’ve been to and the amount that I’ve spent there. I thought it was keeping track like it used to but all of the sudden it didn’t track ANY location other than home. Every time I open the app it says that there hasn’t been any visits which is not true.
I really hope they fix this cause it’s been more than a week. My location is always on for the app, I’ve tried restarting my phone, enabling and disabling location services but nothing is working.

Ever since I downloaded IOS13.1.2 my Lifecycle app doesn’t work.
Tracking issue? 3/5
By Amy CN
Love this app until the most recent iOS upgrade. Since then, the app does not register anything. GPS is always on, reset the phone, deleted and reinstalled app. Nothing seems to make the app start tracking again.
I used this app daily, but since the new IOS 13 update it isn’t tracking my location properly. :( total bummer to such a useful app!
Doesn’t work 1/5
By HP Fan 5
I used to love this app, but since the new iOS came out it doesn’t work. I even downloaded the newest update for the app, checked location services settings and restarted my phone several times with no improvement. I would rate this app a 5 if it worked like it used to. Any chance there will be an update that addresses this issue?
Glitches and Errors Everywhere 2/5
Loved the app for several months but over the last 2 weeks, it locks on positions and doesn’t adjust for new locations. I found it would not track and I would have to ma tally attempt to adjust for where I actually was. Now, I have been “located” at the exact same spot since Sunday morning.
When it works, it’s great but not worth the premium purchase price, can’t even restore from backup and every troubleshooting suggestion doesn’t work. I’ve turned my phone off/on, I’ve deleted the app and restored my purchase from my backup and I’m getting ready to request a refund!
PS - it’s it a one-star review because when it worked it was very useful.
Great app! 5/5
Need to reset the location services setting if you’re using iOS 13. Once you do that, it should work fine !
Please fix 5/5
I love this app. I’ve used it for years. I’ve done everything it says to do in order to make the activity tracking work again. It doesn’t fix it. I’m running the latest version of IOS. Please, fix this. I love this app too much to have to delete it.
iOS 13.1.2 Location Services Stopped Working 3/5
Upgraded to iOS 13.1.2 on Saturday and location services have stopped working suddenly. I had 4 months of great data and now no data for three days and counting. Please fix it!
Other than this bug, been enjoying the app and keeping track of how I spend my time. Love that it is connected to the Ten Percent meditation app and health data so it automatically logs my meditation sessions. It also does a good job of logging my workouts, sleep, and time at office.
Wish they’d design it where you can create a new activity and set the duration by clicking a button that says five or ten minutes instead of having to set the end time. I end up spending too much time trying to log my many ten minute book reading breaks daily. Since I read in my office hallway or lounge area, it doesn’t auto log it because it thinks I’m just in the office.
App works great 5/5
I dont know why everyone says app is not working after the IOS update. It works fine and great
Trouble since most recent iOS update 5/5
Since I have updated my phone, my app says it’s not recording visits for the past few days and to restart phone. I did that and still getting message. Anyone else having this issue? I love this app and I would hate to delete it, but if it’s not going to work, I will have to. But I’m sad bc it has all the places I went to when Europe last summer. Please help!!
Not working in iOS 13 1/5
By SoundMan "G"
App worked great until I updated to iOS 13 a few weeks ago. It was at this point the location services have quit working. All it is showing is I am at home, or I am sleeping. Might want to call an exterminator for those pesky bugs that are multiplying like crazy.
Lost all data even with premium subscription 1/5
With the iOS upgrade, lifecycle lost all my data even with a premium subscription and backups. The app backed up while it was still trying to open the first time, and overrode months of data. So I have nothing. And location services don’t seem to be working anymore either.
Does not work 1/5
With the most recent update of iOS, this app does not work. It will tell you you’ve been at home for the past 10 days. Don’t waste your money until they fix it.
I usually LOVE but lately... 4/5
I’ve been a Premium user of Lifecycle for years and usually I love it! It’s great to see how much time I spend at any location, how much time I spend in the car, at work, etc. However, in the last few months, I’ve noticed that the location of certain events is off. I noticed today, my sleep action was associated with a business over a mile from my house that I haven’t been near lately and I’ve been home.
Beyond the odd, one-off location snafus, this app works well for me!
Does not work in iOS 13.1.2 1/5
Have restarted my phone countless times but the app still thinks I’m at home regardless of me having been all over the place. Please fix it ASAP!
I’m sorry, no 1/5
It’s ok. But the locations are 100% not accurate, at all, and you can’t fix it. It says you’re at one place, and really you haven’t left your house IN OVER 24 HOURS and you can not change it. I tolerated this for a little while, but it seems to just get worse and worse. It says I’m in another f’ing TOWN a lot. I could deal with it for a little while, but this is just unacceptable. And to think I paid f’ing money.
Location services no longer working 1/5
For about a week, the app isn’t tracking my location. I updated the app, but that didn’t help. An error message tells me to restart my iPhone to fix the problem, which I have done several times, but that hasn’t addressed the issue either. I have paid for an annual subscription so having a broken app is frustrating. I hope this can be fixed soon.
Doesn't work with iOS 13 1/5
Since iOS 13, the app no longer records your location. How has this not been fixed? That's what happens when you pay the entire year in advance. Don't make the same mistake I made.
Great App 4/5
Downloaded this at the start of the week. I like it so far. Like anything it has to learn you. The only issue I’ve run into so far is things end up in commute that shouldn’t. Like lunch, half hour lunch. It ended up saying lunch but got lumped with my commute to home. Maybe this happened because home is less than five minutes away. Also I’m a dog walker. So not all walks are walks. Some are work. When I move them to work it won’t let me add their location. It’s just a few little things. But over all great. Can’t wait to see the bigger picture down the road!
Helps in so many different ways! 5/5
This app has helped me realize where I have spent my time, especially with work. It helps me realize my commute/drive time, errands, and sleep time. And, it's very easy to see in a pie chart. Very useful app and I highly recommend it.
Not tracking in iOS 13.1.2 3/5
Worked great before. Since I got iPhone 11 Pro Max it had not worked properly. Using iOS 13.1.2 now.
Doesn’t work in iOS 13 1/5
App stopped working with iOS 13 and there doesn’t seem to be any rush to update the app.
Doesn’t work for college students 1/5
By ET Lancaster
I love the idea of life cycle. Unfortunately, the app doesn’t work for my lifestyle. Most of my activities are within a one mile radius, so life cycle doesn’t usually know what I am doing or where I am doing it. It usually thinks I’m at home or puts me 10 hours in class or gives me the [?].
To improve the app, I would recommend linking life cycle to my google calendar. I already have specific information about major events, e.g. class schedule, rehearsals, and the location thereof. This would be a nice verifier for your app and would hopefully reduce the amount of inaccurate information it provides.
I’m looking forward to continued iterations.
Upgrade to iOS 13.1.2 no longer tracking locations 3/5
Love this app. Super helpful for measuring my time spent working, etc. BUT- the App is no longer tracking location after update to iOS 13.1.2. Privacy and location settings are on but it’s not recording my locations.
Great, but doesn’t work with 6S 3/5
I love the app. It’s easy to use, smart, and super insightful. However, since the iOS 13.1.1 update, the app has been unable to utilize my location services, therefore rendering the purpose of the app obsolete. I’ve tried everything, from deleting and reinstalling, to changing a bunch of the settings on my phone. Unfortunately, it is still not working. I’m not sure if this is specific to my phone or all 6S models, but I’m unable to give a 5-star rating because that. If they fix this, I’d be more than happy to adjust my rating.
New iOS broke the location 1/5
Ever since I upgraded to the new iOS, lifecycle does not pick up any locations except at home. It’s stuck for over a week now. I don’t want to delete my data and restart fresh as I have used this app for over two years now. How can I get support?
My complaints are trivial… 4/5
This fall 2019 I have an actual complaint. I moved across town but "Home" puts me back at my old place. Sometimes, as if by magic I'm able to change that (I really have no idea how), others, no. I changed it's name to it's address but it's still "Home".
I'd like to archive/hide some activities but not delete them. My dear, sweet dog died so archiving everything I did with her would remove them from the list but not the donut. Some with a therapist who died suddenly. I don't want to wipe these people out.
I really like this suite of apps: Life, Sleep, Nap. Both Sleep & Life have been telling me how to readjust my life in simple, straight forward ways and *they're in complete agreement*! 😝 I rely on this app more than any others for my step counts, how long I was sick with a cold, how often I use "as needed" meds, a quick check for how often I do one hike vs another, etc.
I long for more and better colors and icons. I'm disappointed whenever I see the limited pallet and have to reassign colors so I don't have a brown or monochrome donut. Too many activities struggle for an iconic description; I have to engage in mental gymnastics to make something fit.
No longer working 1/5
Used to love this app. But since latest iOS update it no longer works which will mess up everything. So frustrating! Won’t track my data anymore so it’s completely useless now. Deleting the app.
No visits 1/5
By Bullison Shiner
Not working since the latest iOS update.
Tried following instructions but didn’t work.
Just cancelled my subscription.
Wish I loved. 1/5
The app worked for a day, loved the data it showed me! Was super interested in continuing to use it but after the 1st day it stopped recognizing anything. It constantly just says I’m at home.
New iPhone Update 4/5
I love this app!! I’ve been using it for a year now and it’s seriously my favorite app! However, with the new iPhone update that came out a few days again (Oct 2019), the app shows me and random locations all the time that aren’t even near or relevant to where I am at or was at. If there are big fixes that need to be worked out, I would appreciate it, as I am sure many others would too. Anyways, love the app, but now needs some work. I hope it can be fixed soon
Location tracking has broken completely in iOS 13. I’ll gladly update my review to 5 stars when this gets fixed, but for right now this app is completely useless
Ok, I said I would update to 5 stars but that’s not the case, I can only give it 4. When location tracking stopped working, it told me to try restarting my phone, which I did, but that didn’t work. What it didn’t bother telling me is that I needed to have “Significant Locations” in my phone settings turned on for it to work now. They just never bothered to tell me, and I had to find it by looking through the faq.
Pretty cool app 5/5
Really love this app. I use an android phone as my main phone and carry around an old iPhone just to use this app. So obviously wish they would develop it for android, would be super cool, but I value the data it provides enough to justify the effort of an extra phone. 5 stars for what it could be.
Stopped working 5/5
UPDATE2: Post by liamalier was most helpful to fix the bug issue! Now it’s working again, so I’ve returned to 5 stars.
UPDATE: Weeks later and I’m still waiting for a fix! I’m going to cancel my subscription if this doesn’t get fixed quickly!
I have LOVED this app. However it has recently stopped working. Even after notifications that I need to restart my iPhone, nothing has improved. There is no support info I can find, so I hope by writing this, someone will notice. I’ll return to a 5 rating when that happens.
Needs update for new IOS 2/5
I would give this app 4 1/2 stars if it were updated for the new IOS. The app currently says there is a bug in the IOS and I need to restart my phone. Have done that several times and it has not fixed the error. The app does not track locations anymore.
Needs an up date 4/5
By ian olman
Not working right need it fixed
Was great before iOS 13 1/5
I really enjoyed the app prior to iOS 13. But since then the app does NOT track locations. The help section of the app gives a fix. I tried the fix several times but it does NOT work. They say there is a bug in iOS 13. Since other apps are able to track locations with iOS 13, I have to think the bug is in LifeCycle.
I have tried to contact the developer to no avail. There is NO contact information in the app. There is contact info in the App Store, but they say they get too emails to promise a reply. I interpret this to mean they won’t reply. I have used and enjoyed this app for years. Now I am canceling my subscription.
Stopped tracking locations 1/5
I loved this app to track the many locations I go to for work and how much time I spent there. Since the iOS update, it no longer can track locations.
iOS 13 broke my app 3/5
Edit: I found a solution to the brokenness is in one of the reviews!
Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services (at the bottom of the list) > Significant Locations
Turn this feature on (if it’s already on turn it off and then back on again) and then restart your phone. This fixed my issue!
I used to love this app but iOS stopped the locations services from working so for the past couple weeks I’m missing data. So sad an update hasn’t been issued :/
Disappointed with app after iOS 13 update 2/5
Even after doing what was suggested to update locations, it never got fixed. I had to manually input all my activities. If I wanted to do that, I’d log everything into a physical journal and not pay for a subscription. I uninstalled and re-installed the app. Now it’s not connected to my sleep cycle. I give up. I used to really love this app.
iOS 13 broke this app 4/5
iOS 13 broke this app. Suggestion to all subscribers – cancel your subscription. I’m canceling mine. Harrumph!
Will rerate - one place at two different times 1/5
By Lemon taffy
There are two places that I go that are strangely close to each other, but what I do at each is very different. How can I change it to create two separate activities within “one” location?
By -'- nickname-'-
Useless since iOS 13.
I guess the developers have abandoned this app. I would assume they’d post a message somewhere letting their users, who upgraded to iOS13 and can no longer track their locations, know they’re in the process of fixing the bug. Do I get a refund as a paid member?
iOS 13 1/5
The app hasn’t been working very well since iOS 13. Very buggy, and the location tracking is completely inaccurate. I love this app, please fix ASAP!!
