January 27th, 2012No Comments, JEFIT Announcement, by robertrogo.
1.) iPhone/iOS Keyboard Input UI Redesign (With Prev/Next/Done Buttons on top of the Keyboard – We have Redesigned the Keyboard Input for ease of entering in information before/during and after a workout and having the most important buttons being featured in more noticeable and accessible areas. As before certain buttons such as the next, done and previous buttons would be located in spots the would interfere with inputting information and we wanted to structure out the Keyboard Input to make entering in information and switching to each Text Field easier and more accessible.
2.) Redesigned UI – Home and Statistics Pages – As soon as you open up the JEFIT iOS Application you will notice a redesign in the JEFIT Home Page User Interface that resembles the look of the Android Applications but a few new buttons and features to make our UI more user-friendly and accessible then before. Rather than having block buttons that state each section on the application, we have added in more symbols to resemble the pages on our application making it more universal in the process and aesthetically appealing in the usage of the JEFIT iPhone/iOS Application.
Along with the Redesigned Home Page, we have also Redesigned the statistics page to feature user-profile pictures as well as displaying more data and information about your profile/account. The display resembles the Android Application Statistics Page Display, a mini display of your My-JEFIT Profile from the website right on your application to view and track your progress after each exercise/workout.
3.) Ability to take Progress Pictures – We have finally introduced the Progress Picture taking function to the iOS Application in which users can now take their own progress photos to see how well they are doing within their workouts and upload them to the JEFIT Server, creating progress picture albums. With the iOS Display functions we have included a fade in and out function when viewing your progress photos to see the drastic changes you have made while using our application. An example would be posing in front of the mirror and say viewing the progress of weight loss or even a gain in abdominal muscles from the start of your workouts to where you currently are at now. We feel that this a great feature rather than just having pictures sliding in and out as you can actually see a bit of a comparison from yourself at the start of your routines and how you used to look, and the progression you have made to this date.
4.) Fix Alarm Bug (Notification of Rest Timer Alarm) – This bug has plagued our users since the introduction of the JEFIT iOS Application, as when you start your resting timer and exit the JEFIT Workout Application to lets say your iTunes Music or another Application, the resting timer will either start or not notify the user that the timer has ended. We have introduced a new notification system, sort of like receiving a text message from the JEFIT Workout Application but a notification message (At the top of the screen/Widget Slidedown) letting you know that your resting timer is about to end and allowing you to click on the message thus returning back to the JEFIT Workout Application and your routine. Also when you are navigating outside of the JEFIT Workout Application while the Resting Timer is currently running, the timer will continue without any problems or stopping. Previously this would affect users as they would return to the application and the resting timer would continue from the time you left off previously (with no progression at all), but now the application will continue the timer until finished and issues you a notification of its completion.
* Also we wanted to let our iPhone and iOS users know that the JEFIT iOS Application requires users to have Version 4.0 or Higher for their iOS Device to currently run the application due to the new enhancements and SDK changes we have made with this update. *
JEFIT iPhone/iOS Pro – Along with the development of this current update, we have also been duel coding/developing the JEFIT iPhone/iOS Pro Application in the process so those of you who are indeed looking for more features/functions and for some of the functions featured on the Android Pro Application, these will ALL be featured on the JEFIT iPhone/iOS Pro Application that is going to be released soon. We have been working on both updates at the same time including these newest functions/redesigns and features for both versions of the App and now are currently moving onto the development and completion of the JEFIT iPhone/iOS Pro App. We will be providing more information, details and a post about the iPhone/iOS Pro Version when it is complete and ready for release but that version is currently being developed on at this moment.
