What's New in Version 3.7.0
A new year, a new look!
At the end of 2016, our partnership with Speedo ends and we will be returning to our independent roots and continuing to develop our app under a new name, SwimIO.
We're really excited to be working on SwimIO and look forward to making 2017 THE year for swimming & technology.
Best Swim App by Far!!🐬
Really great app to keep you motivated when swim training. I've been using this app for a few years and log all my swims on it. You can log swims against various lengths of mapped swims which makes it great for beginners (or as a 'quick win') but also includes longer swims for people who like a bigger challenge! I award myself a treat for when I complete a swim, and you'd be surprised how satisfying it is to get to the end of a swim - a real sense of achievement!
New swims are added regularly but there are already loads to choose from.
Suggestions for improvements would be to add satellite imagery and maybe a way to some context to where you are on the longer swims - so I'm not just a random dot in the ocean! I recommend it to anyone in the pool.
Good app but has its flaws!
On the surface this is a really good and simple swimming app. Unfortunately it's let down by a few simple things that I think could be easily fixed!
Good points- I really like the idea of visually seeing how far I've swam using the tracker (currently swimming from Alcatraz to the shore). Also it knows the length size of my small local pool which is great!
Bad points - When logging your swim it doesn't automatically update to the most recent day! This took me 4 swims to realise so currently I've swam 2500m on one day with 4 separate swims. I think it should automatically update to the most recent day instead of making you scroll through, find the day and add it yourself.
Another bad point is that you can't go back in time. Sounds silly but if I go swimming at 7:00 and finish at 8:00 by the time I'm all dry, dressed and got out to the car it's 8:20. I then can't put in the app that I started swimming at 7:00 and ended at 8:00 i have to say I started at 7:00 and finished at 8:20 as they only let you finish on the exact time you're on! So now I have to put 7:20 start and 8:20 finish.
Simple fixes though and apart from that very good app.
I've been using this app for about a year now and have found it really easy to use, quick to log swims, and provides some useful feedback/stats which help motivate you to update yourself to up your game from one week/month to the next.
I love the feature that lets you make notes about your set, and use this to log my set details and times; as such I am now able to go back and look at my sets and times from last year to see how I've improved and/or to just look for inspiration for a set I haven't swum for a while.
I'd recommend you give it a try.
