This is our last major release before the end of 2010 and we have three very exciting announcements to make. The holiday vacation season is right around the corner, and we’re releasing new features to help you stay on top of your fitness goals for the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011.
New Year’s Resolutions: Set up your goal and put some money on it!
We want to help you make exercise a big part of the new year, and when you update to CardioTrainer v3.4, you’ll immediately have the chance to set up a New Year’s fitness resolution.
How many times a week do you want to exercise for the next months? Something as simple as five minutes of walking counts! Choose a goal you’re comfortable with, and you if you want to give yourself extra incentive, stake some money to be donated to the charity of your choice if you don’t keep the resolution. After you’ve chosen the amount, you will be quickly redirected to the Android Market to purchase one of our donation modules (you can also continue without staking any money on the resolution).
Once you’ve purchased the donation module, you’re done! The app will tell you how much time you have left and how many workouts you have to do. As long as you keep up with your resolution, you’ll be refunded your original stake at the end of two months. If you don’t keep your resolution, the amount of money will be donated to the charity you chose.
CardioTrainer Twitter Integration
Twitter integration is here! After you’ve exercised with CardioTrainer, you can send a tweet with the details of your workout. All tweets are automatically tagged with the #cardiotrainer hash tag. To share a workout on Twitter, click the Twitter icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen (see below).
Brand New CardioTrainer Facebook application!
Following our completely updated Facebook integration, it’s now possible to post workouts to your Facebook profile right from your computer. When you visit apps.facebook.com/cardiotrainer, you’ll see the workout entry screen (seen below) where you can enter your details and immediately post the workout to your Facebook wall. This is a great way to get all of your friends and family to share their exercise activity, even if they don’t have an Android phone!
Since this is a very early version of the CardioTrainer Facebook application, the workout will not be saved to your CardioTrainer account but we’re going to be improving this as we keep working on the feature.
Download the latest version of CardioTrainer from the Android Market, and share your feedback below!
