The version number of our latest release on Android app – 10.0 suggests that this release has more to offer than just some bug fixes. It does indeed include some of the most requested features and we hope you will enjoy tracking with our Endomondo Sports Tracker app on Android like never before. So which new features are we talking about?
Bluetooth Low Energy
We kept you waiting for some time, but we are now bringing support for the Bluetooth Low Energy HR monitors on Android. The support for BLE Speed and Cadence devices will be added in one of the next releases. Big thanks goes to almost 200 Android users who joined our Beta testing community at Google+, and helped us testing various Android phones with all kinds of BLE HR monitors. We couldn’t have done this without your support – thanks.
Premium and PRO users on Android can enjoy bigger and better graphs on the map.
Lock Screen Widget
Check out the picture showing our new Lock screen widget. It enables you to view your workout data while the screen is locked. You can change the display fields and the text color. Please note that the widget is available only on Android 4.2 and up.
We added support for Google Maps v2 offering more map features, such as terrain map, rotate and tilt gestures, compass and more.
It is now possible to share your workouts on Google+ right from the app after you finish a workout. When you press the G+ icon, you will have the option to choose which circles on Google+ you want to share your workout with and you can also edit the post. If you add a status message, the same message will be included in Google+ post.
We introduce a completely new ANT+ implementation using “ANT Plugins”. Please reconnect to your sensors as it connects in a new way and we therefore had to delete your current sensor list.
