Thread: workout.app the perfect app!
04-11-2008, 12:25 PM #1workout.app the perfect app!
it would be really cool if you could make a app to track your workouts! When you first launch the app you can add a machine. Add how much you takes on that machine. Something like this:
machine 1: 50
machine 2: 65
machine 3: 60
when you have one / a couple of machines in your list you can:
Last time and history
When you are at the gym you can open that app, select "benchpress" from the list and see what you took last time (70kg) and see HISTORY. In history you can see that 3 months ago you took 50 in benchpress and that way you can track your progress, maybe with a diagram if that is possible, like the nike+ipod running service.
Go to goals, select add goal and select what machine, how much you expect to take and a deadline for the goal. The app calculates week for week how much you need to take to make your goal. When you finnish your goal you get a trofe (spelling?) to your trofe collection, a little motivation, again like in nike+ipod
this should be pretty easy, its just text input and calculating. BUT its a uniqe app and a lot of people would use this alot. The platform is perfect, you bring your ipod/iphone to the gym anyway for the music. If you make this app i think you could get a lot of donations, or even charge 10 bucks for the app. I would buy it/donate alot, and its not rocket science to program. Not doing it for the money? do it to activate people, there is to many games out there . Are you up for it? I can assist you with ideas, graphics and things like that. PM me

it would be good to be able to enter info for each machine for: sets, reps, and weight
what's a "take"? is that some kind of british terminology for reps?

The creator of DopeWars is probably gonna turn this killer app idea into reality. I am making a flash demo now of how i want the app be (to much free time, yes) to inspire him. Lets hope its gonna be a easy job for him and a release is coming soon. I dont think its gonna be any problems at all, but what do i know? im no programer..
