Ratings and Reviews
Love this app. Interface took time to get used to but just really brilliant once you do. Any chance of an Apple Watch version?
So - first major bug is that it increases your 1RM each cycle and not your training max - which is completely wrong.
Other slight annoyance is that it will show you your goals i.e. “lift 5 on last set to beat 1rm” but it doesn’t dynamically update dependant on the weight you set there- sometimes you need to adjust the weight - but the goal remains unchanged.
Also the app doesn’t take into consideration any joker sets or additional sets performed when calculating your latest 1RM PR - even though it tells you how many reps required to hit a PR in the joker area - performing the PR doesn’t get logged in your graph.
It would be nice to easily be able to see previous cycle results somehow without the convoluted process of using the calendar and the going in through there. You can leave notes etc . But again they aren’t accessible without going in through the calendar. Needs looked at.
It’s close to being 5 star, but user experience is lacking a little overall
Edit: I removed an error in my review - also dev seems to taking the feedback on board which is nice - hopefully see the fixes implemented. Especially to the TM increase bug
Developer Response ,
Hi, Thanks for the feedback. Could you please send me an email? I would like to discuss some issues.
Nice and lightweight, though improvements would be appreciated
The app is quick and minimalistic which I like. I think the chart could be better though.
I think the x axis should represent date rather than workout number. When I log my weight it doesn’t match up on the graph with my lifts because I don’t weight myself every session. It also makes the graph pointless since you can’t judge your improvement over time.
It’s also weird that reload sessions should be plotted on the graph - why?
