SWMBO has been telling me I need to lose weight for several months. So I went on-line to Noom.com this afternoon. I went through all of their B.S. and signed up for a 6 month program. I plunked down my $159.00 and expected to be emailed the Program guidelines. The website said I would hear from them right away.

When nothing came after 3 hours I went on-line to registration support to find out what the issue was. After an extended "Chat" session I was informed that I had to use my phone to download an "APP" to participate in the program. This immediately fired me up as I don't run "Apps" on my phone. I use it to make calls, and receive calls, and send and receive text messages. The Texting thing is torture, as the form size is incredibly, ridicuously small and unusable for me. I have big fat clumsy fingers.

Why would the dimwits that wrote the phone app, not realize they could have developed an application that could be run on both a phone or a desktop, or laptop at the same time. Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad: Is it all the "cool kids" doing it? Don't they realize that most of the people out there wanting to lose weight, or struggling with Diabetes, are "Senior Citizens" like me, and did not grow up with mobile phones, texting or "apps". And I'd bet that most of them feel the same way I do. There are many people out there that can not afford to even have a mobile phone to begin with.

If any of you guys work(ed) for Noom, please let me know what they/you were thinking.

I am flabbergasted that they would exclude and alienate such a large portion of their market. I cancelled my subscription as soon as I found out what is involved. I learned a long time ago that businesses want as many customers as possible, and the goal is to make it easy for the customer to use your service or product.

BTW: Whoever did their website should have put a great big message on every form "You can't use this program without using our Mobile Phone App! There was NO indication anywhere that the program could onyy be used on a mobile phone. The irony is they sure as hell have a complicated "App" running on their website!

If you know anyone in charge at Noom ask them to call me.

Finally, I know I am a cranky, old, S.O.B. and freely admit it. Telling me this is the case, and that I should move on with the times, would be a waste of effort.Cool | :cool:
Change is not always good. Especially when the only reason is to be"cool".
