Endomondo Launches Major Update to Prepare Windows Phone App for Future Feature Additions

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – April 10, 2014 – Setting the stage for popular feature offerings down the road, a redesigned Windows Phone update was released today for the Endomondo Sports Tracker app. This is Endomondo’s first major update for Windows Phone in more than a year.

Along with creating greater app stability, the latest version of Endomondo has a new look and feel that creates a cleaner, streamlined presentation with new icons and styles for menu pages. Users will also see that WP8 Maps replaced Bing Maps for tracking routes, and WP8 Text-to-Speech functionality in English has been integrated into the app’s audio coach.

Multiple synchronization upgrades have also been made to the Windows Phone app. A history of workouts can now be downloaded from Endomondo servers to smartphones, and specific workouts can be deleted if desired. The app’s Facebook integration now has easy, single sign-in access to support the sharing of workouts, and older fitness activities can be loaded into news feeds.

Mette Lykke, Endomondo’s CEO, said the changes made available this week form a solid base for developers to add the features many fans have been requesting at Endomondo’s blog. “Endomondo’s intent is to build an app for Windows Phone that rivals features available to iOS and Android users,” Lykke said. “We will not be able to add all desired features at once, but our users should see updates throughout 2014 that prove we have not forgotten Windows Phone users and know the platform continues to show strong growth.”

Now with 23 million fans around the globe, Endomondo stands apart from other activity tracking apps because it helps users connect with like-minded people and encourages the sharing of experiences and support in achieving collective goals. Endomondo Sports Tracker turns GPS-enabled smartphones into a personal trainer and social motivator capable of tracking workouts, analyzing performance, and can aid in the discovery of new activities and insights so people become and stay active. Users can send friends real-time pep talks while they exercise, compete against friends for fun, challenge co-workers, and share it all on Facebook, Google+, Twitter or across the Endomondo social network.

Endomondo is free on Windows Phone. For more information, please visit http://www.endomondo.com or http://blog.endomondo.com/.

    Still no Pebble support. Won’t win me back until they make that small simple step.

    This update is beautiful and I love it when apps keep their Windows Phone users in the loop — thank you. However, (one big problem): when I go to History > enter workout and tap ‘running’ to change the sport, the app goes to the previous card immediately, as if crashing, and I cannot enter my workout, since I do not run :)

    Let me know if there is any logging information I can send. Otherwise, I hope this gets fixed soon so I can continue to use Endomondo!

    The coach audio quality is _very_ low. Compare it to Nike or Runtastic, there is a lot to improve!

    FYI: the workaround for logging workouts is to be on the main screen, change the activity there, and then side-swipe to the menu. Tap ‘history'; the desired activity will be there.

    So it’s usable, but buggy.
