Endomondo Brings Social Aspect of Exercising to the Next Level

Explicit sharing - endomondo.com

With the latest release on Android, BlackBerry 10 and iPhone app, we are offering our users a few new features, which make working out more fun and social. It is now possible to tag friends you’ve done a workout with, add photos and a status message right from the app after the workout is finished. Photos can be chosen from those taken during the workout or taken at the point of adding. There is also an option to share this “enhanced” workout on Facebook, since a lot of Endomondo users like to flash their workouts on this social network. (If you cannot see this screen on your iPhone, make sure that you update your app version to 8.2.1. or higher).

After you shared this workout on Facebook, it will contain the same tags, photos and status message as added from the Endomondo app. These tags, photos and status message are naturally also visible in the news feed at endomondo.com, as well as in the workout summary in the app. Users can also add social content from the website.

If you have Automatic sharing to Facebook enabled, the workout will be shared when you hit Stop. But in this case, it will not be highlighted on your timeline, but only showed in newsfeed as now, even though you tag friends and add pictures and comments. If you would like your workout to be highlighted on your Facebook Timeline, you have to disable auto-sharing to Facebook and share a workout while adding the social content. We are in a continuous dialogue with Facebook to make the sharing feature work better in the future.

    • I followed the blog’s instructions. (disabling auto post to timeline, share manually when finished). The description is posted to Facebook but no pictures. A map of the workout is seen together with the social description. But no pictures. Is it supposed to be pictures and no map, or both?

        I have the same experience and look forward to a response from the endo-folks

  2. When tagging a friend, does it add the workout to their statistics too?

  3. So, no love for Windows Phone?

    May 22, 2013
    • not at all :( … have to use an old android-device instead of my new nokia lumia 820, cause endomondo is not able to program the same feautures for WP8.

    Wow. There’s that sounds so awesome. Don’t worry about that silly autopause feature that you can’t figure out. Please keep adding more features and neglecting the ones you added that are pissing off so many users. After all, no one wants an app with fully functioning features. No, we just want lots and lots of features. The features actually working isn’t really the important thing. Quantity over quality is definitly better!

      This is so bang on. Nevermind the GPS and heart rate monitor issues (who cares!) – when are they adding ‘unicycling while playing the nose flute’ as an activity?

      May 29, 2013
  10. Why omit the Windows Phone version? Is this a Premium-only feature? When will a Premium edition be available for Windows Phone?

    May 23, 2013
  11. We didn’t want this! We want to be able to take pics DURING a workout and that they get auto geo-tagged and added to the current workout!
    We don’t want to do it after the workout, it involves more steps, it’s a hassle. Sports Tracker has been able to do it for years, come on endomondo, keep up!

      Hi, make sure you have 8.2.1 app vers. on iPhone. The pictures are visible in News Feed on Facebook. You can access them also from your Timeline, when you click on the day of Endomondo post. Thanks

  13. Windows what? :-)

    Windows Phone 8 update please. The install base of Windows Phone 8 is a bit larger than BB10 at the moment so it would make sense to make us a version.

    Dang it, very tired of my Windows Phone being on the trailing edge of the release for everything. Please update your WP app!

    Nice but too late. I’m already happy with Everytrail.

  21. It would be nice if taken photos can be showed on the track… you know, where it was taken! nice feature…

    Seriously, I want to give Endomondo money for a premium subscription for my WP8. I use Endomondo just about daily! Any linger and Runtastic or MapMyRun may get my money!

    How do we find other people within my city, even if they are not logged in doing a workout? Am I missing something or is it not possible? It would be nice to find other people that live close to me.

      Hi Rick, I suggest you check out nearby routes and see who has created them or is using them. Another possibility how to get to know other Endos within your city is to use our event tool: http://gsfn.us/t/41b6d Cheers

    “We are in a continuous dialogue with Facebook to make the sharing feature work better in the future.”

    Shame, why do other apps have this feature properly working and you don’t?

    May 27, 2013

    Still no heart rate monitor proper with audible zone alerting during the workout, which is still one of the most requested features. Would you please be so kind as to enlighten us how far are you from implementing this essential feature and why is it taking so long? Let me remind you it’s been 10 months since you claimed on your support site that you “hope to have it implemented for one of the next releases”.

    I added a picture to my workout on the app (latest version for Android) but it doesn’t appear under the Social area for the workout on the website. Is this supposed to snyc?

    Another vote for a WP8 update…I use Endomondo pretty much daily! WP8 is bigger than Blackberry and growing fast!

  29. How do I set an activity as the default so I do not have to remember to program the activity prior to the start of the workout?

    June 18, 2013
    • endoeva #

      Hi, it is not possible to set some activity as default but next time you open our app, you should see the workout screen with the activity you’ve done before you closed the app the last time. Thanks
