Endomondo

Last week we learned that Endomondo was taking requests for users to join an upcoming beta for Windows Phone. The beta features the next version of Endomondo for Windows Phone with new features and a redesign. If you signed up for the beta you should check your inbox. Invites for the beta is now rolling out to users. Here’s your first look at the next version of Endomondo for Windows Phone.

Endomondo? It’s that awesome app for tracking your fitness stats when you go on a long run or bike ride. Not only does it work as an activity tracker, but has personal training aspects as well. Using the built-in GPS in your Windows Phone it’s able to track nearly any outdoor sport.

Here’s what’s new in the beta and coming to the future version of Endomondo:

  • Redesigned UI, with all new icons and styles
  • Bing Maps replaced with WP8 Maps
  • WP8 Text to Speech integration for audio coach (for now supports only English)
  • Settings synchronization with server (units, weight, Facebook sharing, etc.)
  • Fixed Facebook integration; Single sign-on support, workout sharing

  • Added more sports
  • Live tile removed for the time being
  • Multiple bug fixes

We just downloaded the app and signed it. Performance as you navigate the app is good, no complaints there. We’re also really digging the redesign. We’ll have to go for a run later on and check out the tracking capabilities. Though first impressions of this new app are very positive.
