SportyPal Pro 1.2.2 for Android

We’ve just released a new update to SportyPal Pro for Android-powered devices. We did a lot of stuff in between this and 1.1, so here’s a big list of changes:

  • You can now install or move SportyPal Pro to external storage if you’re running Android 2.2 or above.
  • Fixed a horrible bug that prevented you from scrolling back to a previous year or viewing a previous year in the quarter view. Also, the quarter view now shows the months in order, starting from the current month at the top and the 11 previous months after it.
  • From the Settings screen you can now select a different pause button that requires you to long press instead of slide it. This does not affect small-screen (320×240) devices.
  • Opening the keyboard will no longer restart the workout. This is related to another bug on some devices where starting a workout in landscape mode would restart the workout every time the screen shuts off (that one’s fixed, too).
  • The MTB and Road-cycling activity types now report calorie burn.
  • Users without a trial or licence can now view the Goal and Tracks screens, though they will not be able to start a workout this way.
  • The Text-To-Speech engine check now works properly, and you will be warned on startup if you do not have it installed on your device.
  • Will no longer automatically share a workout to Facebook/Twitter if both are disabled.
  • Reduced memory usage on the workout map, which should also prevent the application from quitting if you zoom in/out a lot.
  • The squiggly line icon on the workout map no longer changes the map type.
  • Large activity icons will no longer mess up the workout details screen.
  • The Register screen looks a bit tidier.
  • Any screen that requires you to enter your height now shows ft instead of cm if the Imperial system is selected. Also, it will no longer show values like x ft 12 in.
  • Tab users may be able to view SportyPal Pro properly now. We haven’t tried it out yet.
  • Tracks with waypoints are now deleted properly.
  • The settings screen list will now display the current setting for Facebook and Twitter.
  • Heart rate monitor conditions have been simplified a bit.
  • Trying to enable heart rate while not logged in will no longer ask you to get a trial.
  • Profile button no longer closes the Settings screen.
  • Fixed lots of crashes:
    • The workout details screen will now show you a warning instead of crashing if you installed SportyPal Pro over a beta version.
    • Fixed the Arabic locale crash.
    • Cleaned up a lot of the database code to prevent crashes and data loss.
    • Fixed a crash when an unsubscribed user would attempt to sync workouts.
    • Will now gracefully exit if most screens cannot be displayed for some reason.
    • Fixed a heart rate-related crash. The underlying issue may still cause your heart rate to remain at N/A status, though.
    • Fixed several scenarios where a very unforeseen connection error could cause a crash.
    • Better handling of out of memory errors while workouts are being (up)loaded.
    • In tight memory situations, the LiveView display related code will no longer crash the application (though you will not be able to use LiveView). In related news, non-LiveView users should see their memory usage go down a bit during workouts.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur while retrieving workout data.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur while updating workout data.
    • Lots of missing dialog crashes fixed.
    • Averted a couple of crashes which we saw reports for but could never reproduce.
  • Fixed a few ANR situations. Android will no longer think the application is frozen while:
    • attempting to share to Facebook/Twitter,
    • checking your Facebook connection,
    • checking your heart rate while the heart rate monitor is reconnecting.

You can find SportyPal Pro by searching for it on the Android Market, or by scanning the QR code displayed here.

Note that if you are upgrading from a beta version of SportyPal Pro, you must first uninstall the previous version before installing this one.

    I have been using the free version of Sportypal – and love it. But it will not upload to computer. I tried the paid version – (free part) but it didn’t seem as user friendly – I am considering purchasing it as I see you have made some changes. If I purchase it, will I be able to transfer my existing workouts to the pro version? – I have Verizon, LG ALLY – also, I can not get it to load to Facebook either – and have made sure that my account is enabled???? Any advice, suggestions – THANKS!!!

      You can transfer your workouts to the Pro version if you have an active trial or subscription, but you can’t transfer them back to the standard version. In any case, you can have both versions hooked up to the same online account and all of your uploaded workouts will go there.

      As for the Facebook issue, you seem to have more than one SportyPal account. Make sure that the account that you’re trying to use to post to Facebook from your device is the same account that you connected to Facebook.

    What bluetooth heart rate monitor do you recommend for use with LG Ally with Verizon service? or with the IPhone 4 with verizon service? I just started using the Pro version and love the idea of adding the HR monitor but want to make sure I get the right one.

    How do you transfer your workouts to your new phone? I have workouts from my windows mobile phone, my android phone regular version, and now pro version.

      If you have an active trial or subscription, you can go to the workouts list, push the menu button and select the Synchronize option to do this.
