Meet the new Endomondo for Windows Phone 8

We’re happy to share with you that our new Windows Phone 8 app is now live and available in the Windows Store. Update to version 9.0.0.2 today and enjoy a much nicer and more stable experience.

As previously noted, the main purpose of this release is to get the app up to date so that we have a solid foundation to build new features and a killer app on.

We want to thank the more than 1500 users who signed up to beta test the app. We appreciate your help and welcome any additional feedback.

Here’s a rundown of the main improvements.

Design overhaul and new navigation
The first thing you’ll notice is that the app got a major makeover. It’s now much more Windows Phone and much more 2014 and the usability has improved a lot.

The app still starts at the workout tracker screen but if you slide to the side, you’ll find the new main navigation with easy access to your News Feed, History, Friends, Map and Settings.

History sync
The history in the app now syncs with Endomondo.com which means that any workouts done with other devices like Garmin or our app on another phone, are now also visible in the app on Windows Phone.

Text-to-speech and map updates
We’ve improved the audio coach a lot and updated all maps to use Windows Phone 8 maps.

Facebook single sign-on and sharing
You can now log in easily with Facebook and you can share your workouts on Facebook directly from the app.

Refreshed login flow with intro guide and various bug fixes
In addition to this, we’ve given the login flow an overhaul too and a number of bugs have been fixed.

We hope you’ll take the new app for a spin. Any feedback is welcome at windows.support@endomondo.com or in the comments.

Have fun freeing your endorphins!

      It’s there it works every thing is fine

  2. I’m loving this! Thanks for the update!

    One quick question. I think in an older Android version you setup a new run and use one of your existing courses to map it out and track the time. Is this still available? Could it be setup for the Windows Phone app too?

    Updated. Quick on Lumia 920. Nice work. More fetures please :)

    April 10, 2014
  4. Is Heart Rate Monitor support available yet? It was noted some months ago to be coming to WP8 in April. Looking to come back to Endomondo once re-added.

    Please implement Polar Wearlink Bluetooth pulsbelt, I used it before on my Android HTC, and it works great with Endomondo for Android

    April 10, 2014
  6. Nice!

    Now we will wait for a fast update to include the same as other platforms has.

    The update looks very nice! Good work! You get a big plus! It’s hopefully not last update, a lot good features are still missing. Like interval training!!! ;)

    April 10, 2014
  8. Karsten Juul #

    no update is possible :-(

    I’ll leave Nokia and go to android where Things are working.

    April 10, 2014
  9. No share on Twitter? No ability to pin your newsfeed or workout history to the start screen? Those features were available before this update and will be sorely missed.

    Beta and new winphone app i have a problem only see blue route track and no map detail at all. Switch to satellite view and see photo detail

    April 10, 2014

      So no response to this issue or help or advice

    Will the beta app still stay strong and be updated regularly before the regular app?
    or is it better to switch instead to the regular app?

    April 10, 2014
    • endoeva #

      Hi, we recommend that you delete the beta app and install the regular version. The next release of Windows Phone app should be in 2 months and the next beta will be available prior to that release – we will notify you about beta via email. Cheers

      April 11, 2014
      • Ankush #

        Thank you :)

    I think my endo is not giving me voice information in each km, as it used to… is it something that I have to do for it?

    Also I’m missing the “most used” menu for type of workout, now I have to look for it in the complete list every time I change it…

    April 10, 2014
  13. Wow, that was GREAT news!!!
    The app is now AMAZING, AWESOME! Using the wp8 maps was a long missing feature! Another GREAT thing (that you forgot to mention) is that now we have “beat a friend” and “distance as goal”!!!

    Long waiting for the “follow route” feature, hope it got implemented soon. ;)

    Right now, i’m VERY HAPPY that you guys are REALLY thinking on your Windows Phone users. Congratulations on that!

    The new version is updated on the french store

    http://www.windowsphone.com/fr-be/store/app/endomondo-sports-tracker/6cd31275-c5dd-df11-a844-00237de2db9e

    This is the old one…

      this is the belgian store, not the french store, in the french store the version is still the 6.2

      April 19, 2014
  15. David #

    Hello, I’m French and I don’t find this new Endomendo version on the store. Is it normal, maybe I have just to wait few time to get it?
    Thanks!

    April 11, 2014
    • endoeva #

      Hi David. It should be available by now. Let us please know if otherwise. Thanks!

      April 11, 2014
      • GUnth #

        it’s seems to be not available :-(

        Hello Endoeva,

        Thanks for your reply.
        I tried to check if the last update was available but unfortunately, I’m always on the 6.2.0.0 Endomendo version.
        I tried to uninstall and reinstall too, but result is similar. :(

        I ask some french friends to check their endomendo on wp8, it’s same for us : it’s impossoble to get the 9.0 version on their mobile.

        If I can help you to identity the reason, don’t hesitate to ask me. :)

        April 14, 2014
      • Julien B #

        Still not available on French Store :(

        April 16, 2014

        Hello Endoeva,

        Do you have any news about Endomondo on the French store? :)

        Thanks in advance for your reply!

        April 23, 2014
  16. Thanks for the update. I hope that soon there will be other updates like the ones on Android and iPhone because we are paying the same money as they are

    Thank you to implement Heart Rate monitoring managed thru Bluetooth LE.
    That’s really a need.

    April 11, 2014
    • Kiki Risager #

      I Fully agree

      April 11, 2014

    THANK YOU ENDOMONDO!

    Cant wait for the additional features, but this is a great start!

    April 11, 2014
  19. How about interval trainings? This feature is one of most important for me. Anyway, great work. New app looks way better than the old one.

    April 11, 2014
  20. A nice update ! But I’d like to know, when could we get a pro version app on Windows Phone 8?

    April 11, 2014
  21. Stefano Gamberini #

    Giusto 2 giorni fa ho disdetto Endo Premium. Ora, visto che vi siete impegnati, penso di rimanere. Ma non fermatevi, avete fatto un bel salto ma mancano ancora alcune cose, fascia cardio in primix ;-)

    April 11, 2014
  22. Fredrik #

    You’re a bit late with getting this moving. I waited over a year and a half, and around new year I discovered Caledos.

    It has all I need. It syncs with RunKeeper which my ShapeLink account auto imports my runs from. It connects to my Zephyr HxM. Nice and simple interface and great statistics. It connects swiftly to the GPS before starting the run.

    So, I’ve already exported all my runs from my Endomondo account…

    Used for the first time today for a cycling workout on my WP Nokia 920. Tried to link to Facebook to share and the workout disappeared. Is there a way to get the workout back?

    April 13, 2014
  24. Dimitri #

    Great! I just upgraded to Premium and quit using RunKeeper.
    Hope you guys upgrade the app with the same features as iOS and android.

    April 14, 2014
  25. Lars Mortesen #

    Support for Bluetooth HRM on next update, please.,
    E.g. Zephyr HxM

    April 14, 2014
  26. geramorgan #

    Hi, I’ve been using the latest version of endomondo, it was fine in the first workout, but wen I reached the 4.67km it stopped tracking distance and time, since that day I can’t use it anymore, the GPS won’t connect and all I can track its time, so now it works just like a timer… How can I solve this?? Thanks

    April 14, 2014
  27. Erwin #

    I really like the new layout and implementation of the WP8 maps.
    The text to speech has improved the audio feedback very much.

    To bad the music button has disappeared, I was kind of hoping for a better implementation of this button in a newer version. With selection of playlist or something like that.

    April 15, 2014
  28. Still no heart rate monitoring so still no use!! can’t believe I have to use 2 different phones, my work phone an awesome Windows Phone that does everything I need except decent bluetooth HRM and my old Xperia S that I can use my Ant+ HRM with for my workouts!!! I do have a bluetooth HRM but so far the apps on Windows Phone 8 are not great and lal have their own issues I just wish Endomondo would put such a critical feature in to the Windows Phone app, I don’t run I use it for all my other primarily gym based workouts so the HRM is critical.

    Disappointing again but unfortunately coming to expect it with this platforms support by Endomondo, its a shame because your web site and application are brilliant. I used to have a 1 year subscription I changed to month by month because as soon as the killer app comes along to Windows Phone 8 that does a decent job I will switch to it, I am hoping that app will be Endomondo though!!

    April 15, 2014
  29. Hello, thanks for your update, it looks beautiful!

    However, at least for my nokia 925 and windows 8.0, I cannot add any workout manually. I’m trying to add a “indoor ciclying” workout, but when I select this kind of sport, the app goes back to the list of previous workouts instead of letting me finish the rest of the info (duration, kms…) , it’s behaving like if I click back twice instead of once. I tried selecting any other sport and the problem is the same, I cannot add any workout manually.

    Thanks for answering and keep working this nice :)

    April 16, 2014
    • Simon Hudson #

      Yep – I have this problem as well, as noted below

      May 2, 2014
  30. Thanks, I really appreciate the love your sending to Windows Phone users. I used the new app for the first time today – I really like the look and feel of it – it was an admittedly crappy and overcast day out today, and lousy GPS conditions – but it kept pausing and resuming my workout, which it’s never done before, it also clocked the route I did as 7.88 K, rather than the 6.28 it’d done the week before. Nice in that it makes me look faster than I am, but hopefully it’s a one off aberration and has nothing to do with the new app.

    April 17, 2014
  31. anthony #

    hi I’m french and I can’t instal the last version, I’m still stuck with the 6.2. Please can you fix it and make your application availlable in the french store. thank

    April 19, 2014
  32. Alin #

    Please add Live Tiles support and an option to ask the „confirmation of closing” the app using the „Back” button. Using this method of warning, the user will be sure the app is not closed/suspended.

    Thank you for updating the app. Much cleaner. Hope you will add more features and please pay attention to the low RAM WP devices. Those are still many of them (Lumia 520, 625, the new 630 etc).

    April 21, 2014
  33. Tim R #

    Yeah! Looking forward to see what is in store for the app. Once parity with other platforms is achieved I will be upgrading to the Pro. :-)

    April 21, 2014
  34. deadspeak #

    A big improvement over the previous version. Looking forward to regular updates. Looking at upgrading to premium when features are in line with android and IOS. Keep up the good work guys.

    April 23, 2014
  35. Hi Development Team,

    i come from Runtastic and installed the Endomondo app yesterday on WP8 Lumia 920, so i cant say anything to previous versions. The APP is o.k., it has a fresh design and a good look & feel. I missed the heart rate support and the top speed as i do my first workout “race biking”.

    April 24, 2014
  36. Lars Mortensen #

    Can you provide an approximate timeline for when which features will be available, or maybe a list that shows what you prioritize most?
    Do you have an approximate update cyclus, so we know when your counting on to release the next updates, will it be weeks or months or?

    April 24, 2014
  37. Alan #

    I really like the new design – very crisp and clean – … as a person who tends not to wear my prescription glasses when I work though, It would be really nice if the icon for the type of exercise (and maybe the gps status too) were a little bit larger. Also, I don’t seem to be able to manually add an exercise on my WP8.1 device – the add function crashes when I attempt to add a new exercise (without tracking it). Hopefully that will be resolved soon. Once the WP8 of this app has heart rate monitor support, it will be pretty much perfect!

    I am using V9.0.0.2 in Nokia Lumia 720. But I still find a big problem, hope it can be solved.
    I approved to background running, but I take a photo (using Nokia Camera(V4.5.1.7) APP), then the Endomondo APP is stopped immediately. I need to restart a new track.

    April 28, 2014
  39. Simon Hudson #

    Lovely, but history entry no longer works for squash or racket ball. It bounces closed as soon as you select either sport.

    I quit endomondo a while back. I used the previous version of the app for WP and it was awful. Too little functions, awful audio coach and just a feeling of “we don’t believe in windows phone so you are screwed for using it”.
    I got so disappointed I even stopped going to the website. It was hard to stop,seeing my “friends” and receive their support.
    I started,to use Runtastic and I really appreciated the app. It had important features to me as interval and the possibility to control the amount and frequency of feedback u get while running. Their website is not ever near endomondo level, but the app is great.
    This update to wp8 was a nice surprise. The app looks cool and it has interesting feature I am eager to try. Specially the beat a friend one. I can imagine that will make me run a hard run every week. 😊
    There are still a few key features missing. Interval, frequency of feedback and guys… Get some Bluetooth hr support also. To be honest… How did u miss it?
    But anyway, all this to thank you guys for this updated. I hope you keep ur promises of adding new features. I will give endomondo a new chance. Thank you guys and keep up the good work.

    ps- another thing I noticed was the “people out now” feature is gone. Why is that? I could use that feature at work.

    May 5, 2014
  41. Mira #

    Thanks for really great update! But the heart rate monitor support is still missing, hope it will come soon.

    May 12, 2014
  42. Michael Thomasen #

    Endomondo team.
    Please answer back on that quistion about heart monitor, I also missing this option for my Polar belt.

    May 12, 2014
  43. Sylwek #

    Interval training, please :)

  44. Fabiano Silva #

    I can’t start audio coach using this new version of Endomondo for Windows Phone. Does anybody can help me?

    May 13, 2014
  45. Please please please can you stop it telling me that my workout has paused and my workout has resumed. Every time I go through a bunch of trees this keeps happening or when I’m waiting to start the parkrun. It also happens when I’m going slowly up a hill climb on my bike and my phone thinks I’ve stopped. It is demoralising at best. I don’t need my phone to tell me this. Please will you stop this feature or at least give me the ability to disable it.

    May 27, 2014
  46. Kristian #

    Hi, I would like to see more ‘categories’ in addition to runninng, cycling etc. In particular I would like to see mountain walking as a category, and also to have statistics for elevation.

    June 2, 2014
  47. Pål Torgersen #

    What about routes and more audio feedbacks like they have on Iphone and Android? I became Premium member yesterday, and the app still missed a lot of Things. Very disappointed…

    June 12, 2014
  48. Does the Zephyr HxM Bluetooth Wireless Heart Rate Sensor (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002PL33AQ) work with Endomondo on a Nokia Lumia 920 device running Windows Phone 8.1?

    July 8, 2014

    Just got my new Nokia 930Windows phone. Great phone! First app to download was endomondo, but where is the Premium version?

    August 17, 2014

      Hi Erhardt, we don’t offer Premium features on Windows Phone yet. Stay tuned! Thanks
