Great motivational support, few tweaks needed!
I'm disabled and just getting back into swimming after a few years' break. This app is brilliant for logging how often, how many lengths and how far I've swam. The various goals are brilliant for motivation and give me something to aim for, as well as look back on to see how much I've managed to achieve. It's a great log. It does need some improvements however- calorie count seems inaccurate (I burnt more calories swimming less distance over a longer time period and despite swimming further more quickly since I still haven't burnt that amount!), the link to the Health app doesn't seem to update the exercise completed, and sharing the achievements to social media is very basic- it just shares a screenshot photo of the log, rather than a post that links to the app like lots of other fitness apps do. It would also be nice if you could stack the goals too- such as when I've finished the Serpentine swim I want to do Escape from Alcatraz, but if I swim over-target for the Serpentine, those lengths are lost unless I split the swim and start the Alcatraz goal. Hopefully these slight annoyances will improve over time, as it's a great app and the only one I know of that specialises in swimming!
Works. (ETA —not that well)
App works fine and is quite pretty. No way that I have found of editing or deleting a swim or set if you've logged something on the wrong day for example.
Really negative - I've used RunKeeper a lot (which is rubbish for swimming, good for almost everything outdoors) and it's a little pocket cheerleader. All this tells me is how far under average each swim is or how far from my best it was. For a beginner - and this does have beginner's programmes - this would be less than helpful or encouraging.
ETA: after about a year of using this, I'm changing my rating and deleting the app. I never used the goal feature which some people say is encouraging. Everything else in the app has a negative tone. 'X less than average' etc. whether it's for that swim or for the weekly total or for the annual average. My swimming really varies week to week because life happens.
Still difficult to edit - I contacted the developer and they explained how to do it but it's very fiddly. Counts only in hours and minutes - again, I contacted the developer and they thanked me kindly for the observation and changed nothing. This feels like a dead app. No future development, no improvements. Despite it's lack of swimming support, I'm sticking with Runkeeper.
Excellent. Almost perfect....
Lovely interface and excellent features--easy to log swims, loads of coaching resources, automatic calculation of your pool length from a massive database of pools (my favourite thing, as I travel quite a bit and use different pools). All round VERY GOOD. Calorie calculator could be improved by cross referencing distance over time--at the moment, you "burn" 96 calories over 10 minutes regardless of whether you do 2 lengths or 22 in that time! And it would be nice to have he option of editing which Facebook account it links to--it's automatically logged me in to one I use for work, and I'd like to be able to re-log-in as my home account. But these are small details in what is generally an EXCELLENT (and very pretty) app.
