How can we improve SuperBetter?

iPhone app not compatible with iPod Touch

I know it's called an *iPhone* app, but these apps are almost always compatible with iPod Touch. When I tried to download it, it said that the app required a camera. Why? Please make the app compatible for iPod Touch users. Thanks!

    Sorry about this — the app requires a camera because some of the quests require a camera. However, we agree it’s an unfortunate limitation, so we’re looking into ways to make that part optional in the future.

        I want to add my voice to the requests for a non-camera version of some sort... but I will be going to the website, because I am not going to wait!

        Yup, I was really frustrated that this wouldn't work on my iPad 1. Again no camera. I didn't even realize there were quests that required pictures./

        I have a 3rd generation iPod Touch and I keep checking back to see if I can download this app yet. Please make this app non-camera friendly so I can enjoy this website wherever I go!

        I'd really appreciate it if I could use this on my ipod without a camera. I've found the web version helpful, but I'm trying to get out of the house more and not be on the computer all the time.

        I agree! I have an iPod Touch without a camera and an iPad with one. So I can't use it at all on my iPod Touch and it's the wrong size on my iPad (very small). Not cool.

        I agree. Make is as widely compatible as possible; no point in excluding those that don't but the latest greatest (seeing how Sarah responded, I'm saving my votes though ;-)

        Same problem with my ipod touch, and my iPhone 1 can't run the required iOS version for the app because Apple 'discontinued' support (as in: they can't be bothered to make their own products work well for longer than 4 years or so).

        For the SuperBetter app - could this be an easy fix: option to just insert a blank image when the device has no camera?

        Seems like a great practice . . can we make this more accessible to other devices? 3rd gen touch user here . .

        I have same issue with 1st gen iPad. I can use the web interface without a camera, why not the app?
