Windows Mobile SportyPal 1.0.9

September 23, 2009

A new update is now online for Windows Mobile users. It is highly recommended that you upgrade SportyPal to its latest version.

Here’s what we fixed in the new version:

  • Fixed the crash that occurred when you click “Back” when viewing the workout map.
  • Since we broke altitude for anyone who had it pre-1.0.8, we added an “altitude tweak” setting. Here’s how it works:
    • If altitude worked before 1.0.8, you don’t need to do anything. You should get altitude back when you install 1.0.9.
    • If you just got altitude in 1.0.8, you need to go to “My Profile”, scroll to the very bottom of the advanced settings section and uncheck the “Use altitude tweak” option.
  • Flipped the keypad buttons on landscape screen devices. The UI should be a little easier to use now.
  • German language is now available, really.

Users upgrading directly from version 1.0 should read this note.

Download the CAB here.

Any problems starting this version once you’ve upgraded? Read this.

Note that this is an old version of SportyPal. We’ve decided to keep it around because some of our users have been experiencing issues with the newer versions. If you’re installing SportyPal for the first time or if you’re upgrading from a previous version, you should probably download the newest CAB here.

Windows Mobile SportyPal 1.0.8

September 18, 2009

A new update is now online for Windows Mobile users.

Here’s what we changed in this version:

  • Finally fixed altitude, at least on our devices. Be sure to tell us if your device saves altitude data for workouts made with this version.
  • Advanced settings in 1.0.8

    Advanced settings in 1.0.8

    Added an advanced settings section in “My Profile”. Here’s what it lets you do:

    • Allows you to disable pace view during running workouts. This serves the same purpose as the option in the “Choose Workout” screen.
    • Allows you to disable SportyPal’s power savings mode. Uncheck the “Turn display off during workout” if you want the display on all the time, or if turning the display off kills your GPS signal.
    • Allows you to disable language inferring. Most devices don’t have a problem with this, so you should probably leave it alone.
    • Allows you to manually choose the port and baud rate for your GPS device. The “Use managed GPS” setting should work for you, but in case it doesn’t… Be sure to tell us if this helps you, since our devices all work with managed GPS.
  • Swapped the time and distance labels in the workout details screen. Thanks to everyone who pointed this out.
  • Fixed pace not being loaded for the workout details screen.
  • Fixed the tracking map when the activity type was set to “Free” (crashed in 1.0.7).
  • Graph now shows pace instead of speed if pace is enabled.
  • Fixed the previous workout’s calories showing up when scrolling through workout details.
  • Fixed the hardware button selection in the list in “My Workouts”.
  • Fixed Windows Mobile Standard devices crashing post-upload.
  • Updated Russian language translation, added German and Czech.

This is an old version and is no longer available for download. You can download the newest CAB here.
