    Myfitnesspal sync

    Any plans to sync with MFP?

    Lots of cardio based apps partner with them and would not class them in direct contact with you, more like you both needing each other to add further options to both platforms.

    Would be great to sync my workouts across rather than double entering them for calorie counting?

    I use runtastic that is similar to runkeeper, for cardio items. When I book a session into jefit I then have to re enter the session as strength training again into either mfp or runtastic. This becomes tedious as I would like the calorie count to sync straight over to MFP from jefit.

    I agree, but jefit is obviously the best for weight training and could easily incorporate the calorie count into mfp, which would be very appealing to cardio/calorie counters using mfp and looking for strength training options.

    Indeed and this would be almost perfect ! But jefit stated that those apps are in direct competition with jefit ... .

    I wish they would play well with others. This has become the reason I am not using it to avoid double entry. I have switched to GymHero which is not great but at least it does a great sync with Runkeeper that syncs with MyFitnessPal. At least RunKeeper knows it is not designed for strength training and willing to work with others to offer that feature.

    I currently run Endomondo in the background while using Jefit. I then sync Endomondo with MFP. I use the generic 'strength training' term as the exercise. I definitely agree with others that a Jefit/MFP partnership would be fantastic.

    Integrating MFP into Jefit (or vice-versa) it will make Jefit a must-have app.
    What Jefit needs to integrate into MFP is the calories consuming data for every exercise or for a routine.
    Since MFP calcualtes automatically the calories burned for general gym exercises, Jefit probably will need to adapt its core to fit MFP requirements.

    That's why I think that the integration will be at the same time useful but also difficult to realize...
