Windows Mobile SportyPal 1.2

A new update is now online for Windows Mobile users. This update allows you to use all the workout types that are available on the website.

Here’s a list of changes in the new version:

  • Added new workout types: skiing, rowing, horse riding, driving, flying, sailing, swimming, hiking, paragliding, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, surfing and golfing.

    Oodles of new workout types

    To use one of the new workout types, go to the free style workout icon in the activity selection screen. This will open a new screen where you can select from a list of the new types. Note that none of the new types show your calories during a workout, but feel free to upload them, and we’ll add the calories as soon as we set them up.

  • Added variable sampling rates according to workout type.
  • Altitude mode is auto-detected now. There should be no need to set it manually now, but the option’s still there in the profile screen if you need it.
  • Added an experimental auto-pause feature. We still don’t know if it works well on all devices, but you can turn it off in the profile screen if you don’t like it.
  • The workout tracking map screen now displays the correct current speed instead of the average speed (oops).
  • Removed the splash screen. Starting SportyPal now takes you directly to the main menu.
  • When uploading, you’ll get a notification when a new version is available. The notification should contain a clickable link that you can use to download the new version directly.
  • SportyPal now sends unit system information properly when using the device to create an account. If you register an account with imperial units selected, you’ll see imperial units when you log in to the website with that account.
  • Fixed several extremely rare bugs that make SportyPal unstartable, like corrupted workouts or map images being saved.
  • Also fixed a potential Facebook-related crash (“potential” as in “no one has reported it, but it was bound to happen sooner or later”).
  • SportyPal now checks for and attempts to correct negative length/time workouts.
  • Fixed the pop-up menus that sometimes refused to appear.
  • The profile screen should start-up much faster now.
  • Added some instructions on where you should place the device during the workout. They show up while you’re waiting for a GPS signal fix.
  • You no longer have to enter an e-mail address to start a workout. You only need to enter your weight now.
  • Fixed several translation-related bugs in the sharing screen.
  • The sharing screen should now close itself after a successful share.

Note that there have been two minor fix releases since this one:

  • Version 1.2.1 fixes the inability to save the unit system preference in “My Profile”.
  • Version 1.2.2 fixes various Windows Mobile Standard-related issues and most likely does not affect Windows Mobile Professional users.

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

    Why not add this to the Windows Marketplace for added exposure?

    Altitiude works! great!
    but today my cross registration was broken, I’ll try tomorow check again, may be it was my snow-drop.
    Great work.

    I haven’t been able to persuade the Profile to save Imperial measurements. After I make the choice and Save, my workouts are still calculated in Metric and if I return to Profile, it’s switched back to Metric. Do you have a fix?

  4. VinceInSeattle Says:

    1.2.2 seems to work, thanks.

    I’d like to lobby again for larger fonts in the workout screen. There are only 5 pieces of information here – time, distance, current pace, average pace, and calories – plus their labels and some menu options at the bottom. “Calories” could even be eliminated from this screen – it doesn’t provide any useful information while you’re running. You have acres of blue background – why not use some of it for larger fonts for the useful information? May I ask how old you guys are? Someday, perhaps, you will be 49, running in the dusk in the rain, and wonder why you can’t make out those little numbers through the spots on your glasses. Just sayin’.

    I’m little bit confused: now i don’t need start first tom-tom gps application to catch gps signal from Sportypal.In fact both started up hang MDa, but single run Sportypal works fine and good: see my last workout, recorded 16km 🙂 (

    But I made some photos and can’t find them at my device. Where is configured target folder for photos?
    Any default localisation?

  6. Kevin Porter Says:

    I must be the only one having real issues with this version it seems to reguarly lose gps where others didnt and at times just crashes all together no error or warning before this happens. This has been fine up until this latest version which is a real shame as I was hoping to use the Hiking functions on it.
