Ratings and Reviews
Great iPhone app, but watch needs help
I’ve used GymGoal since the first GymGoal, and have absolutely loved it. The ability to track your exercises, reps, have pictures and videos, and create custom exercises is great. The app works flawlessly on the iPhone. If i was to rate this for the iPhone portion, it’d be a five star app.
The Apple Watch is a different story though, and if I could give the iPhone a 5, I’d give the watch portion a one star rating. The app constantly crashes on the watch, and you have to reopen it, and hope and pray that it will pair with your phone. The app says that you can start a routine that’s saved as a schedule directly from your watch, without needing your phone, but when you launch the app it says “open GymGoal on your iPhone”. But GymGoal is open on both devices but they don’t talk to each other. And now the new version doesn’t give you a notification on your watch when your rest period is up, so you have no idea when to start your next set.
The potential is there for the Apple Watch portion and I hope that the developer fixes the issues. I love this app, and have used it for years, but if these Apple Watch portions aren’t fixed, I may have to look elsewhere.
Problem with Update (Oct. 2019)
I’ve been using Gym Goal for years, but the recent iPhone update has unfortunately caused difficulties. In particular, when I type in a word or number (say, the number 10, as in repetitions), the font color blends in with background, rendering the writing essentially invisible and the app useless. If this isn’t fixed soon, I may have to get a new workout app. Here’s hoping they take care of it!
UPDATE: the switch to Light Mode worked — thank you very much. I’m assuming you’re now working on a new update, because, alas, now the app is crashing. Hoping it’s all sorted out soon. I love this app!
Developer Response ,
There was a bug in Apple development tools. They've released a fix and there will be GymGoal v.8.9.4 soon.
Been using this app for a few years and I recommend it. It’s not full of fitness models, but instead but instead full of great functions. The graphing of improvements is very motivating, and ability to great dynamic supersets👍🏻
For developer, here are some areas that could be improved to make it even better:
We have option to add exercises like kettle bell or TRX. Give us the option to delete or hide exercises (don’t need list of things like curling)
Heart rate monitor is buggy. It used to connect & display live data on app and watch.
Navigating could be smoother. If you leave active routine ( like home page) you cannot jump back into that routine the same. Now you’d have to pull up log and use edit feature for remainder of routine.
