Need a new running app?

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

If you’re in the market for a new running app (as I suspect many of you are) we’ve just gotten word that iSmoothRun has slashed its price by a whopping 60% for the next couple days. So for $1.99 you can get a rock solid app that exports directly to Smashrun, Dropbox, and a ton […]

Smashrun API Integration Bounty

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

When we started Smashrun we thought data viz + badges + running = awesome. But what we didn’t know then, was that we’d literally spend 80% of our time building a data aggregation platform against a quicksand of constantly changing API’s. Or that we’d be begging, buying and pleading our way just to be allowed access to […]

Nike Run Club sync issue

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It appears that the runs from the new Nike Run Club app aren’t made available through the Nike API. Right now, we’re not sure what we can do to get them. Either they’re there, or they’re not. This is frustrating to say the least. Between the recent changes to the Nike website and the new changes to […]

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 […]

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.

Facebook!

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

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 […]
