99-year subscription not showing up

January 10, 2012

We’re glad to see that a lot of you are taking advantage of our limited 99-year subscription offer. Some of you that had subscriptions from before this offer expressed their concerns that the 99-year subscription doesn’t appear in your Subscription/Voucher screen, displaying the previous subscription instead.

We just wanted to tell you not to worry. Your new 99-year subscription will appear when your previous subscription expires. If it doesn’t, log out of the application and log in again. If you are concerned that your 99-year subscription was somehow not activated on your account, either visit the My Vouchers section of the SportyPal Store (if you bought a voucher code) or ask us to check.
Note: the 99-year subscription is no longer available. While it may appear in the store due to a bug, you can no longer buy it.

The missing MTB icon (and it’s less-frequently-noticed Road-cycling counterpart)

July 13, 2011

Some of you have been commenting on us removing the MTB (mountain biking) icon from the selectable activity types in SportyPal Pro/v2. We haven’t removed anything, nor is this a bug. Road-cycling and MTB are only available if you have an active trial or SportyPal Pro subscription.

SportyPal Summer Competition is on!

July 13, 2011

If you’ve visited lately, you may have noticed that a new SportyPal competition has started. Click the banner below to enter the competition:

SportyPal Summer Competition

We’re giving away 5 Sony Ericsson XP110 experience packs, 3 SE MW660 Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headsets, and 10 one-year SportyPal Pro subscriptions. Once signed in, to get a chance to win one, all you have to do is make and upload workouts from now until September 21. Each public upload grants you competition tickets, and each ticket increases your chances of winning.

Some of you have been asking why you don’t seem to have any tickets, even though you’ve signed in and have been uploading workouts. For a workout to count towards your competition points, you need to set its visibility level to “Everyone”. Also, to prevent abuse, GPX uploads won’t get you any competition tickets.

To set the default visibility level for new workouts, go to My Profile -> Privacy options, select “Everyone” in the “My workouts can be seen by” box, and click the Save Preferences button.

To set the visibility level for workouts that have already been uploaded, open the workouts list, mark the workouts for which you would like to change the visibility levels, click the Privacy button and select Everyone from the “Share with” pop-up box.

Good luck!

Windows Mobile SportyPal 1.2.7

September 10, 2010

A new update is now online for Windows Mobile users, re-enabling you to post from to Twitter from your device, as well as fixing several bugs. Here’s what’s been changed in the new version:

  • Sharing to Twitter now works just like sharing to Facebook. SportyPal no longer requires you to enter your Twitter username and password to share, but you have to connect your SportyPal account to your Twitter account. To do this, log in to, go to My Profile, click the Facebook & Twitter tab, click the Connect button next to Twitter and follow the onscreen instructions.
  • The workout details Options menu now has a Fix option that should fix workouts that have negative values or values to large to be uploaded. This is irreversible, and it can sometimes trim a few seconds off of non-broken workouts, so don’t use it on non-broken workouts, OK?
  • Fixed an UI-related crash that would often occur if a device drops the GPS signal mid-workout.
  • Attempted to fix the HD2’s power+GPS issues as per our users’ advice on the forums. We obviously can’t test if this helps, since we’ve never experienced these issues ourselves, but we hope it’ll help.
  • Increased Google Map download timeout for those folks out there with slower data connections.
  • The task manager  should now show only one instance of SportyPal running at a time.
  • Fixed a potential crash while downloading the post-workout Google map.
  • Fixed a bug where the “My Profile” screen would not to be updated with a new language until you restarted the application.
  • Ports in the GPS port selection list should now appear in the correct order.
  • Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause the workout stats in the workout details view to appear with the workout’s Google map as their background.
  • The sorting menu in My Workouts is now closed when starting to drag the workouts list while the menu is open.
  • The prompt asking you if you want to upload your workout after it’s finished no longer has the question mark icon/background.
  • Several more minor bug fixes.

Users upgrading directly from version 1.0 should read this note.
