The Android version of SportyPal has been updated. The new update contains UI-related improvements and is mostly intended for new users, though it certainly won’t do anyone any harm to upgrade to this version. Here’s a list of the changes made in this version:
- Attempting to open the “New Workout” screen now produces a warning if your device’s GPS is disabled, and offers to take you to the screen where you can enable it. The same goes for the main workout screen, where answering “no” takes you to the main menu.
- In anticipation of the effects of Murphy’s law, we’ve added a workaround should you somehow register a false positive: answer “yes” in the workout screen dialog, then back out of the dialog. You’ll get the “initializing GPS” box. Of course, it won’t do you any good if the GPS is really off.
- While we’re on the subject of the “initializing GPS” screen, you will no longer get taken to the “My Workouts” screen if you back out before getting a GPS signal.
You can get this version by searching for “SportyPal” in the Android Market, or you can download it from the download page on our website.
The OS1.5 version of SportyPal has also been updated to 1.7.6. This version of SportyPal is intended for users with devices that are running Android 1.5. In addition to the changes listed above, the OS1.5 version also has the activity type “canoeing” renamed to “rowing”. You can get this version by searching for “SportyPal OS1.5″ in the Android Market, or you can download it directly here.
Note that it’s usually a good idea to restart your device after installing a new version of SportyPal.
