Windows Mobile SportyPal 1.0.2

A new update is now online for Windows Mobile users. It is highly recommended that you upgrade to 1.0.2.

Here are the changes in this version:

  • Fixed a bug which would allow you to record a workout correctly, but it would upload a weird version of it with weird lines all over and a starting point in the middle. If you’ve had one of these, once you’ve installed 1.0.2, you can delete the workout on the site, and upload a correct version from your device with the re-upload trick.
  • You can now make the taskbar appear in SportyPal by clicking near the top of the screen.
  • Attempted to fix the auto-sleep bug. We can’t test this, so tell us if it works for you. If it doesn’t, don’t worry, we have some more ideas to try out by the next version.
  • Fixed a bug where the final coordinate of a workout would not get filtered correctly and therefore end up halfway across the world.
  • Changed the distance display to always show miles if you’re using imperial units, also updated the main workout display to autoswitch to kilometers after 1000 m.
  • Made the record type visible when viewing records for a specific type. This is what it was supposed to look like all along, we just never noticed it was wrong until a while ago.
  • Patched up a bug that would cause SportyPal to crash on startup, thanks to Adam Stein. This seems to be limited to WM Standard, which isn’t supported at the moment anyway, but better safe than sorry.
    There is now no reason why SportyPal shouldn’t start on a 320×240 WM Standard device, although it’s not very usable. Smartphone support is not on the top of our list right now, but we’re moving a little closer with each update.
  • Added version numbers and device names to local error logs (this should’ve been obvious, but Adam Stein had to point it out before we did it). Hopefully, SportyPal won’t crash anymore and you’ll never get to see them.
  • Sped a few things up slightly. You probably won’t even notice, really, but it’s good to know it’s there.
  • Cleared the landscape view on the “My profile” screen up a bit. This screen will be split into more screens as more features are added, so hopefully it’ll become even less messy in the future.

Users upgrading directly from version 1.0 should read this note.

This is an old version and is no longer available for download. However, if you still wish to download it, you can do so here.

    Hmm guy,
    I was in v 1.0.1, it was working ok, except sometimes error at end of workout!
    But now, with v1.0.2 it doesn’t start on my HTC Touch HD anymore 😦 ? Did i miss anything?

      Does it crash on startup or does it give you a message like “SportyPal has encountered an error and needs to close”?

      If it’s the message, grab the error logs from your device (all of the files stored in the folder where SportyPal is installed that have names beginning with “errorlog” and send them over to

    Also experience the same problem on the D810/P3600, when I install the latest version without uninstalling the previous one. So I’d completely removed the program and reinstall the latest version and its working now.

      Hmm… Now we have a good idea on what this might be about. We’ll have a blog post about it soon.

    Sportypal seems to be measuring miles incorrectly. I just matched a recording from the phone to google maps, and there is a mile difference. Any reason why this may be?

    • SportyPal Says:

      This is probably because, at some points during your workout (mostly during the first mile), your device lost the GPS signal, and that caused SportyPal to stop incrementing your distance. The display on the site keeps the values that it gets from the phone, but it recalculates the distance for the analysis tab and the graphs, so that’s why the distance value is different in some places.

      • george Says:

        Thanks. I just did the same trek and sportypal mesaured my distance as 2.5something miles compared to 1.9something previously.
