Home Screen & Notifications
The Home Screen gives you an overview of your Sports Tracker activity: The summary of all your tracked workouts, your latest workout and the amount of new notifications. And obviously you can easily start tracking a new workout using the big orange button.
The Notifications work pretty much the like notifications on Facebook. You will be notified when your Sports Tracker friends share new workouts, comment your shared workouts and when someone accepts your friend request.
If you have linked you Sports Tracker account to your Facebook account you will even be notified when your Facebook friends join Sports Tracker so that you can then easily invite them to be your friends on Sports Tracker too.
The Friends section brings the Sports Tracker community to your mobile and lets you to interact with your Sports Tracker friends while on the go.
You can browse your friends latest workouts and photos as a list or in a cool map view. You can also read comments that your friends have added and take part in the discussion by adding your own.
We have even added the Friend Profile view so that you can browse all the shared workouts of a specific friend.
Friend management is also included so you can accept and send friend requests straight from your mobile.
Explore is a handy tool for finding new routes and trails near your current location or anywhere in the world.
As you zoom in and out of the Explore map view you see other workouts as shared by the Sports Tracker community.
You can then choose to view more details of the workout to see if it might be something you’d like to try as well.
The workouts and photos from the selected area also viewable as a list.
