    integration with other exercise apps

    JEFIT does a great job with tracking weights and other non cardio type exercises, but it isn't very good at tracking the cardio ones. This is especially true with outdoor activities where GPS tracking would be really nice.

    I don't think this is a major shortcoming, as there are already great apps out there for that, like Endomondo or RunKeeper. I don't use RunKeeper, but I do use Endomondo a lot and it is conversely poor at tracking exercises that aren't GPS based (like weight lifting)

    I know that ere are some other apps like the one for FitBit (pedometer) that have some level of integration with both Endomondo and RunKeeper. It would be awesome if there was info sharing between JEFIT and GPS trackers in the same way (or even with FitBit too).

    Any plans to integrate something like this?

    Cool

    I second this, integration with Endomondo would be fantastic! You might also think of getting together with My Fitness Pal for tracking what we eat.

    Thanks, keep up the good work

    JEFIT have commented in the past that the developers of these programs are in direct competition with JEFIT on the marketplace and it is therefore not possible to integrate with them.

    Kind Regards

    JEFit are not in competition with the likes of Runkeeper who track primarily GPS based CV activity. I use Runkeeper and JEFit alongside each other and would never consider using RK for weight training or JEFit for CV. There are plenty of weight training apps that do integrate with RK already...

    He is spot on here! I love Jefit and think it is the best solution, but... The pull of having ONE dashboard to track your workouts is becoming more important to me. Just make it simple for us - Runkeeper integration would be awesome.

    Please create an API

    I love JEFIT, I just really want you to create an API so that I can connect it to other systems... in particular FitBit.

    Just make the API, and I'll do the rest. If you want to talk about what you should include in your API, drop me a line.

    Would love to see jefit integrate with Runkeeper (or Endomondo, but I've read that their API isn't as open as Runkeeper) --> and with integrate I mean the possibility to see all your workouts (running, cycling AND lifting) on one dashboard, be that on Runkeeper or Jefit. The added advantage of just syncing it to Runkeeper is that you already give users the link to their fitbit, their diet programs, ... as Runkeeper has already done this. Lots of Iphone training apps already do this, but none for android... Being the first in this would give Jefit an advantage over other apps!

    I heard that Weightlogger is looking to release their iphone app on Android, and they have integration with Runkeeper. But their app sucks and you have to pay monthly or anually, so no sollution there :-(

    There are other services that are not competitors at all where some data can be shared. Think FatSecret (their exercise tracking is pathetic at best), SparkPeople, etc... These are focused on the calories in part of the day.
    I'm not suggesting that all data be shared either. Examples of relatively safe data to share (push or pull from another source) would be weight. For example, FatSecret could pull my weight (current or historical) and use it as "weigh in" data. Another example would be aggregate data such as x calories burned today though exercise. I don't think anyone was suggesting creating an API where you could effectively dump your data to a competitor's site.

    I'd like to throw my support in for integration and/or linking/data sharing with other GPS based cardio apps and nutrition apps. I have several things tied together for my fitness purposes...Runkeeper for cardio/running, MyFitnessPal for nutrition, EveryMove and GymPact for motivation and "prizes" for meeting certain metrics within my fitness plan)...all share data amongst each other. Each one is good at what they were initially meant to do, but not so good at the other things (i.e. MFP is a great app for tracking my nutrition, but sucks at cardio & weight training). I've tried several weight training apps, with Jefit being the premier app, but there's no cross platform integration. While Jefit has some limited cardio tracking, even the developers have acknowledged it's lacking. I would forget about making that area better & just let Runkeeper link in & do what they do best. There are currently 7 weight training apps that share with Runkeeper and/or MFP in this manner, all of which are restricted to iOs, so Jefit would seem to have a golden opportunity to jump in & fill this gap.

    Thank you for your reply. I appreciate your company staying focused. If you do FitBit you'd be rockin' it!

    May I add, there's an app out there called Daily Mile. I don't have GPS enabled but it *does* calculate calories, distance etc. according to your weight entry and speed factors, type of exercise (linear in nature).
