We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve updated our Android Application.
This is a MAJOR update that contains a complete re-design to the UI using the new Android Material Design style, improved User Experience, new features, changes to current features, bug fixes, performance enhancements and more.
What Is New
1.) NEW Redesigned UI using Android Material Design Style
We have completely redesigned the application to match the style of the new Android Material Design style that Google has released.
All pages and features of the application have taken advantage of this new design style making the flow and look of the application cleaner, modern and accessible.
2.) IMPROVED User Experience
Using the Android Material Design style, we have utilized this to improve the overall user experience.
This means less clicking and navigating to access many of the main features and functions.
We also improved placement of buttons and utilization of the screen to place features/buttons so that the user has a better overall experience.
For example on the exercise detail screen we have made it easier to access the add to routine, logs, notes, progress charts and record logs buttons while also changing the scan through exercise arrows next to the exercise name.
3.) IMPROVED JEFIT Team and User Shared Workout Routine Layout and Loading
We have improved the layout of how the JEFIT Team and User Shared workout routines are displayed on the “Workout Plans” page.
Routines are also loaded at a faster rate and you are able to view more routines on the download page than in previous updates
4.) IMPROVED Workout Routine Day List
On the workout routine day page, we have improved the layout of how each day is displayed.
The exercise day information is contained within its own individual tile displaying :
- Day Name
- Amount of exercises in the day
- Estimated time it takes to perform the workout day
- Last time that you have performed each day
5.) IMPROVED Planned Exercise Day List
For the planned exercise day list we improved the ability for the users to be able to reorder the exercises in their list, delete an exercise and edit the reps/sets and timer of each exercise within the day.
6.) IMPROVED Exercise Database Layout
The exercise database has also been improved using Android Material Design
- Custom Exercises
We have removed the button to access the custom exercise database and instead added an additional 5th tab labeled “Custom Exercises”.
Here you will be able to view all of the custom exercises that you have created using the create custom exercise button on the top right corner of the screen.
- Workout on the Fly
The workout on the fly option has been switched from workout routines page to the exercise database page.
By clicking on the dumbbell play icon at the bottom right of the screen of the page, you will initiate the workout on the fly functionality and be able to record your logs instantly.
- Simple Body Part Switch
Instead of having to back out to the body part selection page, by clicking the drop down menu at the top left corner of the screen you will be easily able to select the body part for exercises you would like to view.
7.) IMPROVED Detailed Data on Progress Charts
We have added in summary data at the bottom of the progress charts page where users are able to view the date of when your maximum and minimum 1RM was recorded.
You are also able to view when you first recorded said exercise along with the last time you created logs.
8.) ADDED Ability to Purchase JEFIT Pro through Free App
We have added in the option to purchase JEFIT Pro through the JEFIT Free application
This will be explained further in a future blog post but we will be merging our Free and Pro products into a singular application in which Pro will be accessed through activating your previous purchase through your account.
As stated we will explain this further in an upcoming post.
9.) IMPROVED Performance Enhancements and Bug Fixes
10.) IMPROVED News Feed Update and Sync Speed
