WM6.5, Bada and Android updates

Hi All

There is a new WM6 version of RunSat available at http://www.runsaturday.com/runsat/release/runsat_1_1_7.CAB – this includes:
- some small fixes along the way
- some additional languages thanks to GeoGeo and Andrea for Greek and Italian!
If I don’t hear of any problems, then I will update AppToDate soon.

I’d still like to do a big new revision of the 6.5 app – but time is against me at present – sorry.

I’ve been working hard on Android – amazingly, the WP7 release was actually a by-product of that work.
I’m now waiting for a product to be released – MonoDroid – currently this product is in “Preview”. As soon as this product hits “Beta” then I will be able to release some code :)

The Bada release seems to be working well.
The only problems I know of are all on Vodafone crippled devices – sorry :/
I have one fix for very long activity uploads – I’m fighting the Samsung App Store to get this released.

That’s all for now – hope you have fun running, cycling, skating, whatever!


RunSat GPS Sports Tracker for Windows Phone 7

I’m delighted to let you know that RunSat for Windows Phone 7 is now on the Zune MarketPlace: http://bit.ly/runsatWp7



The price is currently $1.29 or £0.99 – all funds received will encourage me to build more! For those of you who think the app is not worth paying for, there will be an infinite full functioning free trial available shortly. I missed the “allow trial” checkbox on the first app store submission – sorry!

Bada Version… Your Help Wanted

Hi All

I’d like some help with the Bada version…

  • if anyone’s got any ideas about how to improve the UI then please send them in – some sort of mock up design preferred (it’s far too easy to say “make it look nicer” :) I know there are little things like making the GPS signal strength into icons instead of text?
  • if anyone would like to design a nicer “loading screen”, then please do
  • if anyone would like a version in their own language, then the current text to translate is below – please translate all strings… and then give me the local name of your language (e.g. give me Deutsch not German)
  • if anyone would like a version without adverts then I can do this, but the app will cost money – currently the adverts belong to Samsung/Navteq/Decarta – as they are the ones who provide the maps.

Please don’t fight over these things – e.g. I can only take one splashscreen – so please don’t send me 10 :)

I’m going to focus on the site and on Android now for a bit, but I will do more for Bada.

I am also open to informally open sourcing the code – but I need some time to get it a bit tidier and documented – and I don’t have a lot of time!

Samsung Wave/Bada Version on the store!

The Samsung Wave/Bada version is finally available :)

RunSat/Navmi/RunningFree on the Samsung Apps Store

Please do feel free to try it – and to give me any feedback you have.

Next stop Android?


Wave Update

Sorry about the earlier problems with beta testing – sadly, it looks like the only way to distribute apps is via the app store. Sorry.

The app is now in for approval with the app store – will let you know how it proceeds.

One problem I expect is with the mapping. I’ve added mapping to the diary:

However, despite the fact that this mapping is the official Bada mapping, it seems there are still some licensing issues between Samsung and Decarta – so currently they are telling me to “wait” – and not giving me any information about how long….

Will keep you updated on the progress…

Note – the mapping has adverts attached but only as a condition of using the official Samsung/Decarta maps – no revenue from ads will come to me.

Any Bada Sports Tracker test users – Samsung Wave S8500

I’ve put together an initial Bada app for testing on Samsung Wave S8500 phones.

Currently this app includes:
- a simple diary
- GPS tracking
- data upload to runningfreeonline.com (was runsatuday)

This app doesn’t yet include any mapping (coming soon!)

I’m currently looking for some testers.

If anyone is interested then please:

1. Download this certificate – http://slodge.com/navmi/rootCACert.cer – then copy it to the main memory of your phone and then use the phone’s “My files” app to open this certificate (you can see part of this process here – http://www.careace.net/2010/08/07/run_your_wave_app_on_actualdevice/)

2. Download the test app – http://slodge.com/navmi/runsat.oap – and copy this to the main memory of your phone – then again use “My files” to open this installer.

3. If this works, then you should have a RunningFree app installed – does it work for you?
- if not, then please let me know – I’ll try to help get this working (but this is a very new phone and operating system)
- if it does, then how well does it work? All feedback, good or bad, appreciated.

I’ll post more on this later… but for now I’ll just say:
