As promised, we have a brand new update for the JEFIT Pro and Free Android Applications that features a Graphical Update, Updated UI, Bug Fixes and a Few Additions to the Application. We understand that we haven’t updated the Android App since the development of the iPhone application but we wanted to show to our Android Users that we haven’t forgotten about you guys and want to provide you all with a few changes and updates.
Graphical and UI Update
-One of the main changes we have made to the JEFIT Pro and Free Android Versions were a bit of changes to some of the Graphics, Images, Buttons and UI to give a more polished and updated look. During development of the iPhone application, we got a sense of different types of graphical enhancements that we could provide for the Android Application and change up to make the Application look more visually appealing for you, the JEFIT Users.
Add Ons (Pro-Version Only)
- Ability To Create 1RM Max Goal w/ 1RM Progress / Goal Bar : The ability to now create a One Repetition Maximum Goal for each exercise that they perform. This bar will be located underneath the exercise image on the designated exercise page. The bar will register the maximum 1RM performed for this workout and allow you to place a goal for the 1RM that you would like to achieve, keeping track of the progress that you are making until you hit that goal. There are users that want to keep track of their 1RM and with the previous layout we had with that feature, we felt that it prevented users from fully focusing upon increasing their 1RM. With the progress bar, users are able to set the goals they want to achieve and see what their current 1RM is in compared to their goal. This provides for motivation for the user to lift harder and heavier to reach their goal.
- Progress Bar for All Exercises : With the Progress Bar for all Exercises, we have provided users with the ability to track/view their progress on any exercise, rather than just on the Benchmark Exercises. Also users are able to set up the goals they would like achieve for these exercises.
- Rest Timer Progress Bar : We have included the Rest Timer Progress Bar that allows users to see the progress of how much time that they have on their rest timer rather than just having the display of the number plus the seconds abbreviation right next to it. This allows users to take a quick glance and notice how much time they have left in their rest rather than having to look at the time itself. You could be far away from your Android Device and just want to be able to glance at some sort of progress bar (Sort of like a download bar for those who download music, games and such) to know how soon they need to return to their workout.
-1.) Super Set Force Close : As many users have noticed while using the super-set function, there was a bug which would force close the application when recording stats/logs for their super-set exercises. This bug has been fixed and allows the super-set function to be fully utilized without any force closing or issues at all.
-2.) Fix Exercise Database Bug: In the previous major update for the Android App, we included a significant amount of extra exercises to the database, but a few exercises had descriptions and others caused force closings for a few users, we have fixed this bug so all descriptions are correct and no force closings on any images.
-3.) Update Image Database : Another issue with the exercise database was that we had a few exercises that had incorrect images attached to their descriptions, we have placed the correct images in the correct exercises in which they belong.
-4.) Fix “Log Push” when clicking the Save button on Log Recording Page : When a user created more than 9 sets for a certain exercise, the buttons on the right hand side of the Log-Recording Page would be pushed down, below the point of visibility, inhibiting users from being able to click the save as well as the save and start timer buttons. Logs would not be able to be recorded causing an issue with the current routine/workout at hand. We have changed the layout that scrolls the logs across the top part of the screen with both current and last logs.
-5.) Added 2nd Download Server for Images: There had been a 2nd server added for the downloading of the Exercise Image Pack, this server being a dedicated server. The dedicated server for many users will provide a faster and more reliant download for the exercise images.
-6.) Edit Logs While In Between Sets : Previously when editing logs between each set, users would experience force closings which would shut their programs down. We have fixed this bug so when users do update their logs in between sets, they are able to without any issues or force closings at all.
-7.) Erased Exercise Log Memory Leak : Another issue with the Exercise Database was memory leaking which would cause the JEFIT Workout Application to slow down, we have fixed this bug so there is no slowdown in the application and no memory leaking.
Currently this update is available for Pro-Users only for today, we will be releasing the update for free users tomorrow, as the update is indeed complete but needs a bit more testing before its release for the free users. With the updates for the Android App and both iPhone Applications, updates will be once a month due to the inclusion of the new platform that we have to develop and maintain, we hope that you all understand the necessary extra days/weeks for development to make sure that the product and update is perfect and fully functional for all users. We do appreciate all of your support and thank you very much for your time and understanding.
Again we would like to thank you all for your support and choosing JEFIT as your workout application to help you maintain your fitness and achieve goals that you have set out. We of course will be keeping you all up to date on the development of the IPhone Application along with many other functions and features.
