We built the FulGaz App at work, this is my personal site and my personal opinions, for bike racing and training lovers around the world. I don’t even cycle but the quality of the videos we are producing is stunning, I love just watching, just go and watch the down-hill run at the website. I just want to be there and do that!
Now, truth be known, the down-hill run is not going to be the most challenging experience with FulGaz, because the powerful experience comes from riding a route where you will feel the resistance and pressure that comes from the inclines and the hill-climbs of many wonderful rides from around the world.
We are focussing on quality over quantity. A key competitor in this arena that you’re probably already aware of is KinoMap. They allow everyone to upload videos and the result is an enormous number of very low quality videos. Most of them are awful. But if you want great variety then that’s the App for you.
If you want the most high quality and realistic experience then you want FulGaz. You have nothing to lose because you can ride everything free for a week. There’s no cost to install the App.
But yes, after the first week, we’d like you to subscribe. In Australia it’s ten bucks a month and way cheaper if you’re happy to buy 3 or 6 monthly subscriptions. Where ever you are in the world, it will be about the same real money cost, Apple works that out, it’s not us.
So, the first thing you can do to help improve the App you’ve installed, if it’s remotely good, is to contribute financially. I’m not just talking about FulGaz, this applies to all Apps. I know how much effort goes into building a quality App, game, trainer, productivity App, it doesn’t matter, if it’s quality it has cost tens of thousands of dollars, at least.
The second thing you can do to help improve the App you installed, because you thought it would be good, is to give the developer feedback directly. Go to the website, use the feedback option in the App, go to the Facebook page and tell them about the good or bad things you’re experiencing with the App.
Do not lodge a poor review on the App store without interacting with them at least once.
There are so many things that can influence your experience with an App. You might be running older software on your device, maybe your hardware is older, maybe your internet speed is really slow, maybe you don’t have much memory available. There are so many things that can influence the success or otherwise of your experience with any App.
It may not be the App.
If you have a crappy experience with an App you hoped would be good, give the developer some direct feedback, don’t flame them on the App store. And if the App is OK or pretty good, buy the Pro version or pay to turn off Adverts or subscribe for a month and give it a thrashing. Paying a few dollars sends a message to the developer that you like it and hope they’ll do more moving forward.
It costs a lot to make a quality App, it takes time to support the users and we want to do that, please give us a chance to help.
