Please note: although this post was written for JEFIT workout tracker iOS version, it applies to Android version as well. We have already implemented the similar design for our Android version a while back.
We recently released a major iOS update focused on improving the user experience, especially toward the workout data tracking component. Some of you might find it a bit different than the previous version. We hope this guide will help you better understand the benefits of this new design and how things work differently now.
1. Cleaner & Simpler workout tracker without losing any functionality.
It might look like the last workout logs section is missing, but it is still there. The placeholders (text in gray) of text fields are your Logs from the Previous training session. If this was your very first session for the exercise, we will use a default value for the weight, and planned (target) value for your REP). As soon as you enter the weight/rep and recorded for your very first set, we will load them to your second set.
2. Easier to modify logs / correct data entry mistakes.
Compare to the previous version, you no longer need to go to a separate screen (log history) for making data entry changes.
3. Easier to adjust set count permanently (or temporarily).
In this version, you no longer need to go back out to the planned exercise list page to adjust the set count.
4. Easier to navigate between exercises
Navigating between exercises can now be as easy as a single swipe or single click on the exercise name. You can use this feature to make changes during rest time much easier.
5. Better experience on continuing unfinished sets.
When you back out to the planned exercise list screen and back into the workout tracker screen, we will auto fill the data for your finished sets. If you need to start from set 1, you can simply edit the preloaded data.
6. Much Better experience on Super-set exercises.
Super-set data editing has been a long time issue in our previous version, it used to be a nightmare when you try to edit super-set logs, especially when you back out to the planned exercise list page while only partial of a super-set exercises were recorded, it was very difficult to continue the unfinished super-set, you almost had to start from the beginning of a super-set. There won’t be such problem anymore in current version, you can now easily go back out and back in, and continuou any part of a unfinished superset.
7. More smooth experience on rest timer screen transition.
Our rest-timer won’t stand in your way while you taking break anymore. You can easily minimize the rest timer without cancelling it. This is helpful when you try to adjust the data while taking break, such as correcting data entry mistakes, adjusting set counts, etc.
