iOS App

The  Beeminder iOS app shows you your goals, lets you enter data, sends you iOS notification reminders, and updates data for any Apple Health-connected goals.

How do I add data to my goal?

Tap the goal in your goal list to open it in the app.  The data entry fields are on the bottom half of the new screen.  Check that the date and value are correct — you can use the  +/- stepper buttons to adjust, or tap the fields to edit them directly.  Add a comment if you want, then press Submit to send it to Beeminder!   The graph image will refresh, and the bare minimums and color will update if they've changed. 

You can also enable a widget on the Today screen that allows you to enter data.  It's limited to integers, only for your most pressing goal, which may or may not be exactly what you need!  Tap the +/- to adjust the value, then tap Add data to submit.  You can also tap the graph image to open it in the full Beeminder app.

How do I enable iOS reminders?

Tap the gear in the upper-right corner of the main screen to open the app settings.  Switch the Goal emergency notifications toggle on.

My iOS reminders don't seem to be working anymore.

First, try switching the notifications off and on again.  

Next, double-check your  reminder settings to ensure that reminders are enabled and scheduled to happen when you want them to.  

Last, try logging out of the app and then logging back in to force a full refresh of the cached data.  If goal information is still not updating properly,   contact support.

How do I refresh my data in the app?

To refresh the goal list screen, pull down until the spinning wheel appears.  To refresh a single goal, tap the ♺ icon on the upper-right corner of the goal screen.  This will also fetch the latest data for an autodata-integrated goal.

My Goals screen is blank and nothing is loading when I refresh.

Have you created any Beeminder goals  here?  You can't create goals using the app yet, but once you've made a goal (or more) on the site, they will load in the app view.

If you have goals and it's still empty, check that your phone memory isn't full.  Running out of memory can prevent the app from syncing properly.  (You might notice other apps mysteriously failing to sync as well, if this is the problem.)

Last, try logging out of the app and then logging back in to force a full refresh of the cached data.  If goal information is still not updating properly,  contact support

Completed, archived, and/or deleted goals are showing in my goal list.

To refresh the goal list screen, pull down until the spinning wheel appears.  If the offending goals don't disappear, you can force a brand new sync by signing out & back into the Beeminder app.  Finally, if neither of those work, deleting & reinstalling the app should clear them out.

How do I create a goal with Apple Health integration?
