I've tried all of the workout apps and fitPhone is a dedicated workout log, unlike other apps that thing of the log as a secondary feature. Creating a workout routine is never any fun, either on paper or on a phone. However, once you have created your routines fitPhone is great because you can copy an old workout routine (if you like to change things up a little from week to week), and the newly created copy updates each individual workout to reflect any weight increases you've made since the original routine. Other workout apps seem to be missing this little user experience. I also really appreciate the added feature of SyncDocs for iTunes-less syncing.
I do have a few points that would tighten up the experience:
- Default to list view. Calendar is great if you're sitting down and reviewing your workout history, but from a pure workflow perspective I need to quickly select an old workout from a list, duplicate it and go. Maybe a preference?
- Whenever a row is selected all text should turn to white to contrast with the default blue selected background. The latest update leaves some text black, some grey and some text white which has a "beta" feel.
- When I copy a routine, don't push the new copy onto the stack. That means that going back I have to go back through the original that I copied, which seems weird and can be easily confusing since the data is almost identical.
- I know it's probably a lot of work but the online rending of reports kills this feature. Should be some package out there that you can incorporate into the app.
There are a bunch of other UI tweaks that could really fine tune this app, but those are the top ones that come to mind. Keep up the good work.
