    Where do you think the StravistiX guy gets his data from?
    Strava created a free application.

    Strava is a free application.

    The money they get is for "premium" features.

    I stand by my thoughts that they don't deserve to get paid for their premium features. Especially with stuff like Stravistix around. And with the amount of money they are getting paid, their results are laughable at best.

    Now, you can simply post a picture with out the need to create an activity of any kind, but still only from mobile.
    I've been posting photos for two years from my phone without instagram.

    Strava has revolutionized recreational (and even racing) riding. They have single-handedly had a greater impact on recreational cycling than any single thing I can ever remember.

    I use none of the premium features (I have WKO4 and stravstix and others) but I use the website so frequently (multiple times a day) and have so much interest in the KOM boards and stuff that I pay for premium.

    I use strava multiple times more than any other software I've ever owned or used in the past, including TR, Zwift, WKO+, 3, and 4, veloviewer, sportstracks, etc.

    Just depends what you place value in.

    Well, it does.

    Today I noticed that Strava allows users the ability to post pictures
    But whatever you want to argue about...

    Lol better comprehension skills on your part are required.

    The topic is about the ability to

    1) Post pictures not associated with an activity
    2) Posting stories etc not associated with an activity

    No one said anything about not being able post pictures within activities.

    So yeah, go ahead and argue all you want.

    Sounds like a personal problem to me.

    If you want to donate to them because you love their free app so much, that's fine.

    For sure isn't going to make me think they should be getting paid for their "premium" features.

    Got the Stravix plug-in. I set it to presumably omit the challenges. But they're still showing up - @#$%^^!!!!!

    Just remember that it only works on the computer, not on the phone. It's a browser extension.

    I don't use the phone for strava for anything but workarounds for picture uploads because they're inept and can't figure out how to allow it via PC.

    You mean the changes I made on Stravix do nothing for the phone app? That was the only reason I wanted Stravix.
