Apple Health Kit Integration Please!
I’ve been using FS as my coach uses this to communicate and plan workouts with me. It’s a pretty good app allowing me to manage may training calendar, and I CNA load my workouts from Apple Watch via using a 3rd party app called HealthFit. However not everything translates 100% for example a rowing workout just populates as generic cross training. What would it take to get 2 more stars? Integration with Apple Health Kit. So much of my data that FS needs is in Apple HealthKit (not just workouts but weight, body measurements, nutrition, etc.). Please let us know what the plans are to get FS integrated with Apple HealthKit.
Great app once working, terrible tech support
Using iPhone X and Apple watch series 3, both with current OS and iOS. Have to use Health Fit as intermediary to integrate Apple workouts with FinalSurge. Does not sync with NRC+, which I knew but still, come on folks, let's get better at integrating. Online tutorials are useless and few, no online basic instruction manual. Tech support responded about 1/3 of the times I contacted them and with repeatedly sending non-helpful screen shots or tutorials--could not or would not respond to my specific questions. After a lot of trial and error, finally got app to integrate my workouts. The data available, once integration is finally working, are exquisite. But instruction manual non-existent and tech support is among the worst I've ever encounteted. Integrating workouts into Outlook calendar uses old-fashioned technology but does work once you realize it's an old-fashioned technology that you need to use. So 5 stars for the workout data once integration is working but 0 stars support, thus 2 stars overall for use with Apple watch, iPhone and Apple workouts.
Unusable on iPad Pro
The iOS version of Final Surge is a huge let down for iPad users. It is clearly only made for use on the iPhone, since there are huge margins around the screen on the iPad and the app only works with the device in portrait orientation. Since I usually keep my tablet attached to the Apple Smart Keyboard when I’m not drawing, I need the app to work in landscape mode. Why this app cannot do something as simple as adjust to the orientation of the screen is beyond me. And those huge margins are just ridiculous. What a shame that Final Surge ignored iPad users when releasing its iOS app. I was hoping to use this on my iPad so that I could see my strength training and conditioning workouts on my 12.9” iPad Pro screen while training. Looks like I’m stuck using the web version when I’m on my iPad. What a disappointment.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
