Windows Mobile SportyPal 1.2

A new update is now online for Windows Mobile users.

- Added new workout types: skiing, rowing, horse riding, driving, flying, sailing, swimming, hiking, paragliding, snowboarding,

- To use one of the new workout types, go to the free style workout icon in the activity selection screen. This will open a new screen where you can select from a list of the new types. Note that none of the new types show your calories during a workout, but feel free to upload them, and we’ll add the calories as soon as we set them up.

- Added variable sampling rates according to workout type.

- Altitude mode is auto-detected now. There should be no need to set it manually now, but the option’s still there in the profile screen if you need it.

- Added an experimental auto-pause feature. We still don’t know if it works well on all devices, but you can turn it off in the profile screen if you don’t like it.

- The workout tracking map screen now displays the correct current speed instead of the average speed (oops).

- Removed the splash screen. Starting SportyPal now takes you directly to the main menu.

- When uploading, you’ll get a notification when a new version is available. The notification should contain a clickable link that you can use to download the new version directly.

- SportyPal now sends unit system information properly when using the device to create an account. If you register an account with imperial units selected, you’ll see imperial units when you log in to the website with that account.

- Fixed several extremely rare bugs that make SportyPal unstartable, like corrupted workouts or map images being saved.

- Also fixed a potential Facebook-related crash (“potential” as in “no one has reported it, but it was bound to happen sooner or later”).

- SportyPal now checks for and attempts to correct negative length/time workouts.

- Fixed the pop-up menus that sometimes refused to appear.

- The profile screen should start-up much faster now.

- Added some instructions on where you should place the device during the workout. They show up while you’re waiting for a GPS signal fix.

- You no longer have to enter an e-mail address to start a workout. You only need to enter your weight now.

- Fixed several translation-related bugs in the sharing screen.

- The sharing screen should now close itself after a successful share.

After some time, there is a brand new feature from SportyPal,. not only a new update.

Now it keeps record of INDOOR workouts also, not only outdoor.

taken from SportyPal's blog:

Just log in and in your home menu, bellow the Workout Menu, you will see the new Indoor button. Under Indoor activities you can find variety of different type of exercises from aerobics, gym exercises to basketball, tennis etc. If the activity you have been doing is not on the list, you can easily create your own with selecting "Define new type".

You don't even need to have your phone while doing these workouts. Just click on indoor, select the exercise type, fill in the time/distance and the burned calories will be defined automatically according to your weight/height/elapsed time.
