SportyPal Pro 1.5 for Android

Version 1.5 of SportyPal Pro is now available for Android users, mostly containing voice notification improvements. Here’s a list of changes that we made since version 1.4:

Voice notifications:

  • Voice settings have been moved to a separate screen to accommodate the new additions.
  • New pal notifications are now available (voice notify on workout start/end/pause/resume etc.).
  • Heart rate zone notifications let you know when your heart rate zone changes.
  • You now have the option to have your workout stats read out to you after the workout ends.
  • Music automatically turns down when a voice notification is playing. Voice notifications now use Android’s notification stream instead of the music stream. That means that notification volume now affects the voice notifications instead of media volume. You can now change the volume in the voice settings screen.
  • Multi-language voice notifications: if your TTS engine supports the language SportyPal Pro is currently in, the voice notifications will be in that language.
  • Will no longer misread meters as kilometers (or vice-versa, depending on your point of view) if voice notifications are set to time-based intervals and the unit system is metric.
  • Will no longer pronounce zeroes in pace notifications.
  • Fixed the missing average speed value bug.
  • “In” instead of “crossed for”.

Everything else:

  • You can now set up heart rate warning zones in the heart rate settings screen. You can set an upper and lower bpm limit and SportyPal Pro will beep when going over or under the limit (also, the heart rate box will turn red).
  • Languages can be switched manually, i.e. without changing your device’s locale. You can select a language in the Settings screen. Note that changing the language in SportyPal Pro will prevent it from following the device’s locale.
  • If you log in and you have an active subscription/trial, you will be prompted to download your workouts.
  • You can now pause/continue and end the workout using the menu in the map view.
  • Changed the climb/descent calculations a bit to match the online calculations more closely.
  • Changed the “Licence accepted/failed” text to “Subscription accepted/failed”.
  • Crash fixes.

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.

    Hi SportyPal!

    I was translating the Hungarian part of SP, it is almost good, but there are some problems with the tweet message:

    SportyPal Running tÿFDv: 20,92 km id1: 01:55:42 –

    The accents are wrong, this should be:

    SportyPal Running táv: 20,92 km idő: 01:55:42 –

    And in the other translations is the “running” translated too, in Hungarian no. Why?

    Are there any solutions of this tweet message problems?

    thanks for the answers!

    • SportyPal Says:

      The “Running” part appears because the activity type translations weren’t submitted properly or didn’t get to the developers in the intended format. We can fix these in time for the next update.

      As for the rest of the message, it’s probably an encoding issue (that part of the translation was OK, sending it seems to be causing trouble). We’ll see what we can do there.

    How can I save the notification volume level? There’s no function for that.
