The new demographic ranks

Posted by & filed under New Features.

Finally! The new “Demographic Ranks” is live today. We know. It took for…ever. But, all I can say is it was just really quite hard. Yes, the entire endeavor consists of exactly one single page. But, it is a fairly useful and maybe even, to those who are being somewhat generous, a pretty cool page. […]

Nike import changes

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

UPDATE July 11th, 2017 Nike seems to have made further changes, and as a result their API now returns an error rather than the GPS details for many (but not all) Nike users. We’re going to keep investigating, but since Nike is officially a closed platform, we have limited options at this point. I know […]

A new app for a new year

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Sportractive is a popular and highly rated free app for Android phones. It’s got a super clean interface, accurate recording, and a ton of features. And best of all, it now has a direct integration with Smashrun. If you’ve got an Android phone, and you’re looking for an easy way to get your runs on […]

API Improvements

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This past week we’ve added a bunch of new functionality to the Smashrun API. We’re moving beyond import/export to try and make some of Smashrun’s unique functionality more accessible. Some highlights: Stats by all-time / year / month Notables for a run Splits by kilometer or mile Return a route map as SVG, GeoJSON or […]

French Foreign Legion Badge

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We’ve had our head down working on: Bulk export, Demographic ranks, and a greatly expanded API. And I’ll be honest. They are each complex challenges, but they’re also all just really very dull. Don’t get me wrong they’ll be great additions to Smashrun, but the work involved is just so exacting and tedious… So, like […]

Some small improvements

Posted by & filed under New Features.

We’ve been pretty busy polishing up the new Garmin Push API, but we still made a little time to add some small but helpful features. Projected finish time If you’ve ever run a marathon, you’ve probably wondered: “If I had run the second half as fast as my first half, what would my time have […]

Nike API Issues

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Yesterday there were some changes made to the Nike API that prevent us from syncing Nike runs to Smashrun. We’re looking into a resolution and will keep you posted. UPDATE We’ve reached out to the people at Nike’s API partner program. The program has been closed for some time, but we’re hoping that they might […]

Garmin password reset

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Yesterday Garmin invalidated the passwords of many users of Garmin Connect. If you’re having trouble syncing you’ll need to first login to Garmin Connect. Once there, you’ll be prompted to reset your password. After that go back to Smashrun and update your password on the Settings -> Sync page. You should then be able to […]

FBI Badges

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We got bored working on the demographic ranks and waiting for Garmin to take our (your) money, so this weekend we decided to create some cool new badges. Since there’s absolutely no cooler badge than an FBI Special Agent badge, that’s exactly what we made. Every year FBI agents need to meet minimum fitness requirements […]

Garmin update

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We’re still waiting for Garmin to sign off on our API request, but as soon as they do we’ll push it out to our beta testers. If you’re a pro user and want to help beta test the new API just shoot us an email. Upside: Early access and helping the cause. Downside: Potential failed […]
