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!
