New mobile site + race stuff

Posted by & filed under Bug fixes, New Features.

We pushed out a few new features yesterday. The big one is that we’ve improved the usability of Smashrun on your phone’s mobile browser. It’s only a step, but a fairly big step. It used to be that Smashrun worked great on mobile for anyone with extremely tiny fingers, 60/20 eyesight and an 8″ or larger phablet. […]

Ghostracer integration

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Ghostracer is now directly integrated with Smashrun! This is hugely exciting for two reasons. First, Ghostracer is just an all around great Android app. It’s primary feature which allows you to race against “ghost runners” representing previous runs is pretty killer. But what’s really exciting is its untethered integration with the Sony Smartwatch. This means […]

Monthly cumulative elevation

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This week we’ve added cumulative monthly elevation gain for Smashrun Pro users. It comes with a handy animation that can help you spot which months had lots of elevation gain relative to total distance run. Also, the tooltips on many of the overview charts now include a line for total elevation. Of course, time spent […]

Export from TomTom

Posted by & filed under Company updates.

If you’re running with a TomTom Sportwatch then you’ve probably been syncing first to Nike+ and then to Smashrun. This setup is, obviously, less than ideal. To get the best data quality, you want to get it as close to the source as possible. As the data passes through Nike+, it’s frequently compromised or corrupted […]

Splits on the by run page

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We’ve just added splits to the by run page. Check it out there’s pretty spiffy animation. You can also easily highlight and scrub across to see multi-mile/km splits. And pro users can see their elevation splits as well and open up any split in the Pro Map for further analysis.

Tag Cooper tests for VO2

Posted by & filed under New Features.

A Cooper test is a benchmark run that you can use to estimate your VO2 max. It’s pretty simple. You go to a track. Then, well, you just start running like a crazy person until the 12 minutes are up. That’s pretty much it. The problem is that unless you’re a professional athlete running 12 […]

Update (May 11 – 2:13PM EST): We got the approval from Facebook. It appears to have already worked for several users. Please let us know if you’re still having trouble! So, we’ve managed to track down what’s been going on with the Facebook integration. Facebook requires an internal review of any apps that request special […]

Interactive pace chart

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We’re continuing to work our way through all the charts on Smashrun, making them interactive one by one. This weekend, we’re updating the pace chart on the bottom of the By Run page. It’s been a staple since Smashrun began, but it’s always been, let’s face it, kind of underwhelming. It’s a bar graph with […]

iSmoothRun integration

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

iSmoothRun is one of our favorite running apps for the iPhone. It’s also one of those rare fitness companies that we feel has its priorities right. They’re not trying to take over the world – to monetize your running tracks, slurp up your health data, or become the Facebook of fitness. It’s just a great […]

Small patch

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We did a release this weekend to fix a couple of issues. Runkeeper GPX files should import correctly now You should once again be able to resize your mobile browser viewport The terrible infinite reload bug that some poor souls were plagued by should be resolved In addition we’ve now run virtually every last string […]
