SportyPal was mentioned on Trent Sense’s netcast on YouTube a while ago. Here’s the video if you want to see it:

Connect to Facebook

Android users should already know this, but we thought we’d tell everyone. You can now connect your SportyPal account to your Facebook account. Why should you do this?

Connecting to Facebook allows SportyPal to share workouts on your Facebook wall directly after uploading them from your device.

To connect your SportyPal account to Facebook, log in to the SportyPal website, go to “My Profile” and click the Facebook & Twitter tab. You’ll get several dialogs from Facebook asking you to give SportyPal permission to post to your wall. After you’ve confirmed the dialogs, you’re all set to go.

If you change your mind, you can also revoke SportyPal’s permission to post to your wall. There are two ways to do this:

  • If you have any unwanted SportyPal posts on your Facebook wall, go to your profile and hover over the post, which should cause a “Remove” button to appear in the upper right corner of the post. Click on this button, and you’ll get the following dialog box:
    Facebook deletion dialogCheck the box before clicking “Delete” to revoke SportyPal’s posting permission.
  • You can also go to “Settings” (upper bar, right side) and choose “Application Settings” from the drop-down menu. From the “Show” drop-down box on the right side, choose Allowed to Post. Under the “Allowed to Post Short Stories without Prompting” header, you should see SportyPal. Click “Edit Settings”. You can set SportyPal’s permissions under the “Additional Permissions” tab.
    Facebook Application Settings

If you change your mind again and you want to allow SportyPal to post to your wall, simply repeat the steps you took to connect your account: go to “My Profile” on the website and click the “Facebook” tab.

Just a reminder that there’s a SportyPal page and a SportyPal fans group on Facebook.
