Any ETA?
 
Hi IBobi. Is there an ETA on the android app yet? I work in the software industry and we always have to give our customers/users some kind of estimate for new features. I think it would go a long way if FitDay dev could provide us with an estimated month (or even quarter)...since I thought I read a post they were working on it. Must be a VERY small dev team. :)

Nothing at this time.

Do you even plan on making it or not? Simple as that. :mad:

Any realistic update on if / when you will be producing an android compatible app ? I see promises going back years on this thread and yet as far as I can tell, still no android app. and is this a supported app ?

I tried this so-called app and it seems to be a shortcut to the website. When youn click on it, you enter your user name and password then it opens the browser and asks for it again. Tried it once and deleted it

It is not a FitDay app.

android app
 
An android compatible app would really be so beneficial to the goals of this site. More people would use it more often and accurately. It would be more convenient for people to make more conscious efforts to take better care of themselves and eat nutritiously with the development of a FitDay app that is compatible across the board. These days, all people use are apps/technology and contrary to popular belief, not everyone has an iPhone. There are us out there that don't think iPhones are the best on the market. In conclusion, I think an Android app would be a great marketing opportunity for this website to be able to reach out to a wider range of people. Thank you.

And THIS is why I'm switching to MyFitnessPal. This monster of a thread goes back over 4 years and FitDay just ignores everyone. I've used FitDay for years, I've promoted/recommended it in the Men's Health forum community in which I'm an admin, and like so many others I've waited patiently for an Android version. Enough is enough. There are so many other tracking apps that now do a better job than FitDay and continue to evolve it's just not worth the the hassle of putting up with it.

I check in every few months to see if anything's happened. I can see it hasn't.

I have v.1 of Fitday PC and was thinking of upgrading -- thus my visit tonight. I can't see that v.2 is any different than v.1. The screenshots show dates from over ten years ago (and look like what I already have in v.1) and I would expect to see a list of new features in v.2, if there was anything to list.

Book-learned nerds can bang out a satisfactory Android app in a weekend or two -- provided they have a sufficient supply of pizza and Red Bull. They listen to their users, implement enhancements that are requested, fix bugs that are reported -- this is how they show their appreciation. Most give away their work for free. The ones that do charge a buck or two probably make enough to buy another weekend's worth of pizza.

It's pretty clear FitDay has no intention of listening. I agree with you -- it's time to stop asking.

Yep, I'm on the same boat. I have the v.1 app, was a premium member for a year or so and finally switched over to MyFitnessPal. I'm very happy with it AND it syncs with a FitBit! The only explanation I can think of is there is a very small development team at FitDay...sad really.

I'm out of here too!

Thanks so much for the tip about MyFitnessPal. Been using FD for years but as an Android user it's time to move on.

My quarterly check in
 
Well....I am here for my quarterly check to see if anything has developed ie an ANDROID app...I love fitday but quit using it out of frustration concerning the lack of an android app...WOW still nothing......Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

BACK TO MYFITNESSPAL

Talk about ignoring 2/3 of the market
 
Considering Android phones make up nearly 2/3 of the market, FitDay is ignoring an awful lot of potential customers.

MyFitnessPal
 
I, like many others, am currently using MyFitnessPal for android. It's database is clearly inferior to FitDay, but the app is sooooo convenient. MyFitnessPal claims they have a huge database but he same items appear several times, often with conflicting calorie and nutritional counts. I like FitDay's database so much better, but it is not as convenient to use.
