The last few months of improving Trackster has gone very well. Our app, both frontend and backend, are proving to be consistent and reliable (knock on wood!). After starting the year off with some shaky errors, it feels good to be able to make some quick and very effective additions to the app!

Here are some of the main points for any people interested in the latest additions to the Trackster app! This list includes some minor fixes as well as some larger features but is in no way a comprehensive list of the changes being made to Trackster at any time. Feel free to reach out with any questions and, as always, feel free to submit any bugs or self-discovered issues here: https://trackster.us/bug_report/

Main App Updates

  1. We added both a horizontal gallery of training posts images AND an improved training chart to the profile page.

    • Attached images to your training posts to see them on top of your profile, like shown below.
    • The user's profile will also show weekly mileage, starting on Sunday, if there is any training posts within the last 9 weeks.

  1. We re-added the Activity page to Trackster.

    • Now, in the latest update on all platforms, the user's profile page includes the bell button on the top right. Click here to view the most recent activity regarding your profile on Trackster. Screen Shot 2021-10-26 at 8.54.43 PM.png
  2. Compare training post with any planned training

    • Compares the day of the training post vs. the user's planned training (if any).
      • I.e. this shows what the user was supposed to the do for day vs. what they actually completed. Includes a Boost plan, too.

  3. Add a video to a training plan and enter a 'Routine'

    • This Routine section can include items for any user watching the video to complete. Items can have a time or number of reps as a parameter.

  1. Upload & send videos in the Messages feature!

    • Previously users could send text, GIF, or images with the messaging feature in Trackster.

    • Users can send 1-on-1 direct messages, create their own, or use their team's built-in team chat!

  2. Recommended Shoes Shown on the Home Feed

    • As long as user has some recent training posts with a shoe attached, they will now see a list of recommended training shoes - based on their data!

    • Trackster recommends your next pair of running shoes based on your actual training data. We analyze tons of data that we have regarding every shoe as well as taking into account similar users on Trackster and the shoes that they train with and love.

    • We recommend shoes straight from Zappos - one of the largest online shoe ecommerce sites. You can click to shop and go directly to Zappos to purchase the shoe you see. Trackster does receive a commission with every purchase generated so thank you for any support!
