June 28, 2013

A new update to SportyPal for Android has been released on the Play Store. Here’s what’s been changed in the new version:

  • A Notifications section has been added that allows you to view your Community Feed from your device, as well as your notifications. You can also send messages to your SportyPal friends. This feature is only available on devices running Android 2.2 or newer. (Most ICS issues with this section have been resolved in the 2.2.5 update.)
  • If you’re being prompted to upload your workouts after recording each one, you will now have the option of specifying a tag before uploading. You can also specify a tag in the details screen by selecting the Label option from the menu. If your workout has been uploaded, the tag should be updated when you click the OK button.
  • The Twitter share dialog now has a character count. The dialogs that appear before and after are hopefully a bit less confusing now. The text in the dialog boxes for Twitter and Facebook messages should be top-aligned now.
  • Made some performance improvements for post-ICS devices.
  • The Weather section has been moved to the pop-up menu and has been fixed. If you still can’t get the weather for your location, let us know (we will probably be able to fix your specific issue in an update).
  • Attempted to fix layout issues in the workout screen on certain devices. The workout screen should now always stay in the orientation in was started in.
  • Crash fixes.
  • Fixed an ANR that could occur if it took too long to get the data for the quarter view.

SportyPal 2.1.3 for Android

April 15, 2013

We just released a new update to SportyPal for Android that fixes several issues present in the previous versions. Here’s a list:

  • Fixed a bug that would prevent heart rate monitoring the second time an indoor workout was started. This is also the same issue that caused the SportyPal notification to get stuck in the status bar, so that’s been fixed, too.
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent tracks being downloaded to your device if their waypoints don’t have altitude data.
  • If anyone is having issues with their voice notifications not being played, the voice settings screen now has additional logging that should help us find what’s causing this.
  • LiveView/SmartWatch should now work in Indoor mode.
  • Crash fixes.
  • ANR fixes.

SportyPal 2.1.2 for Android

January 30, 2013

A new update to SportyPal for Android has been released on the Play Store. It’s mostly a bugfix release. Here are some of the things we’ve fixed:

  • Fixed the Pocket Change loading dialog.
  • Added an option allowing you to disable Pocket Change notifications in the Settings screen.
  • Added a voice notification “middle ground” option. The Simple voice setting option has been removed – you can select one of three options if you’re having trouble:
    • Separate streams and volume – this is the default option where voice notifications are played on the notification stream and the music stream volume is automatically lowered while notifications are playing.
    • Separate streams only – this is new. Voice notifications are played on the notification stream but the music volume remains unchanged.
    • Simple: equivalent to Simple voice setting in previous versions. Plays notifications on the music stream.
  • Made some performance improvements for post-ICS devices.
  • Fixed bug where changing the screen orientation changes the language.
  • Crash fixes.

September 14, 2012

If you’re having trouble with the music player on a pre-Froyo device, please contact us and we’ll try to help you in the next update.
  • Added an icon showing that a workout has been uploaded to sportypal.com when viewing the list of workouts in the workouts list. Note that this icon will only show you whether you’ve used SportyPal to upload the workout (if you were to delete the workout from the website, it would still show as uploaded on your device).
  • Added a menu option in the workout screens that allows Sony Ericsson Xperia active users to view the bike mount guide.
  • Slovak language support.
  • Improved ANT+ sensor reconnection.
  • Attempted to fix a bug where a speed sensor cutting out mid-workout would cause sensor-based distance to be way behind the normal distance. This was very difficult to reproduce and test, so please let us know if it shows up again.
  • Updated the calorie estimation for swimming workouts to be slightly more accurate.
  • Fixed a bug where the the indoor timer would not reset the minutes after the hour changes (e.g. 2:164:17).
  • Fixes for climb/descend issues.
  • Fixed a bug where current speed, distance and time would not show up on the LiveView if the workout is in bike mode.
  • Fixed track downloads – missing track icons will no longer cause the entire track to fail to download.
  • Fixed a bug in the sensor setup screen where the tire/wheel diameter would increase every time you opened the screen if your units system was set to imperial.
  • Fixed additional stops during voice prompts on devices in certain locales.
  • Fixed a bug where the device’s locale would reassert itself as the application language after viewing the full screen graph.
  • Fixed the graph leaving the graph panel on high-res devices.
