Back in January we reported that Endomondo had begun the process of remaking their popular running app for Windows Phone. Due in April, the company was soliciting feedback from you folks on features you wanted to see the most in a new app. We like when companies do that, instead of assuming that they know what’s best. Combined with Windows Phone’s unique features e.g. Live Tiles, Lock screen support and Modern design, there’s lots of opportunities for devs to make something unique.
Today, Endomondo posted on their Facebook that the beta was ready to get going. The process is super simple, meaning you should all participate!
Here are the instructions:
That’s it. You don’t even need, to file a beta report or anything with them, just use it. Of course, if you want to provide feedback, we’re sure they won’t mind.
Endomondo hasn’t been updated in nearly one year for Windows Phone and while it maintains a decent rating, it does have some issues with pausing and crashing for some users. This app refresh, which coincidentally ties in with the expected Windows Phone 8.1 update, seems like a good opportunity for the company to reclaim runners who use Windows Phone.
If you want to check out the non-beta/old version, you can download it here from the Store.
