A new design for starting, tracking and your activity summaries
Activity tracking is easier than ever in version 4.08 with a redesign of the starting, tracking, and summary experience. Not only that, it's more helpful. We now show you the temperature and weather conditions before you get started!
🎤 Make sure to have your sound on to hear Andi speak as you get started.
This update also includes a bunch more Andi! We have so many plans for your little pal and how he helps, motivates, and celebrates your active lifestyle. Stay tuned.
Optimizing when and where we use your location.
With the 4.08 release, we've taken extra measures to ensure that we only use your location when absolutely necessary. As a result, you should see the location indicator less frequently, which is great for privacy and battery life.
Heart Rate data has now been incorporated into your activity summary with this update! Simply scroll through the summary to see it.
As a reminder, we store as little data as possible and will never sell your data. For more information on this, please read our Privacy Commitment.
Extended Privacy for Active Clubs
You can now toggle your location and route map entirely on or off when posting to your Active Club. While we built Active Clubs to be about close friends and safety, we know that sometimes hiding your location entirely is still necessary.
The new toggle will be available for all new posts, and you can edit an existing post by hitting the ... menu and tapping "Edit".
Oh yeah, we won an Apple Design Award!
We are both honored and humbled to have been selected as an Apple Design Award winner for Visuals and Graphics this year. The team is immensely grateful for the support received from our community, investors, and friends over the past 2 years. We now have the cube, and there is so much more to come!
