iOS app: Loading indicator for goals

When I launch the iOS app, it often gives me a scare. If I’ve entered data for one of my goals outside the app, and that goal would have otherwise derailed, then it shows a big red LOST when the app first opens. It sends a stab of fear through me, until the app updates its data and refreshes to show no, my goal is still on track. Phew.

This happens almost every time I open the app. Can you add a neutral “loading” indicator when it launches, so it doesn’t just assume I’ve derailed? Or maybe just for the goals that would have derailed, wait until you’ve actually refreshed the data before showing that scary red indicator.


Seconded! As always, heart the suggestion if you like it, to help us prioritize features and changes.
