What's New in Version 8.3
Bugs be gone!
New version is awful
Bring back the customization PLEASE! That was the only reason I used this app in the first place. I would even be willing to pay to get the features the old app had of being able to track my workouts, make goals, etc. This new version is almost useless due to the lack of features.
You got rid of the "unpopular features" such as algorithms?! What?! That's the reason so many people loved this app before this update! Now I have no algorithm tailored to my needs. Also I cannot change an exercise to a different similar one if I need to. That was one of the best features of the app! Certain machines are always busy at the gym or I dislike some exercises or I don't have certain gym equipment or injury prevents me from doing certain ones and the ability to customize that was amazing. How can I download the old version? PLEASE make the old version available. This version is worse in every single way possible. The only thing that is better is the graphics.. Who cares about that when you ditched everything else great about this app!?
I've used this app for years and have found it to be an essential workout companion. However, the latest update has effectively ruined the app by removing all of its functionality and customization. It's now a list of canned workouts rather than a sophisticated way to plan and manage your fitness program. To add insult to injury, I've spent about $60 over the years with them on various workout packs, none of which I can access post the update. Total disaster, stay away and look elsewhere for a fitness app.
Update: They've released a new version but it's substantially the same as the previous version which chose to forgo all that was appealing about the app previously. Custom workouts continue to be missing, ability to auto generate workouts based on equipment available is also still missing and, most importantly, access to exercise packs for which we paid is still missing with no signs of returning. They really went for form over substance, sad to see that happen to what was once the best fitness app in the App Store.
The Gain team continues to push out updates none of which contain any substantive fixes to the serious issues with the app identified by myself and numerous other users over the last several months. Further, Gain support doesn't acknowledge or respond to emails regarding these issues. Very disappointing to see how the app quality and customer service have deteriorated.
If I could give it 0 stars
I used to use this app every day in the gym. It was customizable and really helped me establish a routine. I even liked it so much that I had purchased about half of the expansion packs and planned to buy more. Well thanks to the update this app is no longer usable. It used to have something special going for it but now it's like every other app where you have to choose a routine from a pre set list that does not track past accomplishments nor takes into account different body types, fitness goals, or experience levels. The same issues are present with the yoga app by the same company; I used to love it and now it's just taking up space on my phone. I still have hope that they could turn this app around but it went from my favorite workout app and the only one that really worked for me to a horrible experience.
Not to mention the app is confusing, hard to navigate and does not function to the level at which an app should.
Shame on this company!
