Endomondo, the sports tracking app company with more than 23 million users, today announced a major update for their Windows Phone app.
After nearly a year, the new version of the app offers greater app stability and 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.”
The app features:
- Track almost any distance-based sport including duration, speed, distance, calories and more
