Can we have an Android App

All I want from an Android app is the ability to do Strength, Yoga and Mental training sessions. So just the videos. As mentioned above, just saves opening the laptop first thing in morning.

I have Apple laptop and desktop, and even a mini iPad, but can’t wait to be able to get The Sufferfest on my Android, which would make life so much better and easier for me, especially on the go. Thanks for all the work you are doing to make it happen.

You will get a COVID-19 vaccine before you get an Android App.

Woah… I asked for one in 2014 on the old site… Can you include Chrome Cast please?
DON’T let that delay the app though! Been waiting six years

I don’t necessarily want to bump this thread (or do I?), but the anticipation is killing me.
The mass indoor season is upon us, choices -from a consumer perspective- have to be made which app(s) to go ahead with to bridge the autumn/winter months. I assume I’m not the only one who has to make choices w.r.t. subscriptions. I can’t (I won’t) do, and SUF, and Zwift, and TR,…
Some/many(?) people don’t subscribe to SUF just because of the lack of an android platform. I’m not one of those people, but I can follow their logic. There are alternatives.

In that sense, would it be possible to share the roadmap for the app? There’s no perspective.

In another topic I shared my thoughts w.r.t. enabling users to have a vote of at least organize structered input from/for users. It can only make the service better, make users feel appreciated if you share roadmap/progress about the service, make the Sufferfest culture even more popular within the user community,…

Please put this in perspective. I can’t begin to understand what is happening behind the scenes since the acquisition by Wahoo; things which are for sure more important than user participation (aside from the great forum we have now!) at this very moment.

Not to pile on, but the man has a point. :slight_smile:
The timing would indeed be pretty perfect now.

I am a happy iOS user but will still give my +1 in here. I would like more people to suffer.

The only place I could have really used the android app from my phone was for in the work gym. But as that and the office is predominantly closed, the need for me at least is reduced.
As mentioned in above posts, just having yoga and strength on there would be an amazing start. Appreciate all the minions are doing to make it happen. :+1::slightly_smiling_face:

I have a MacBook Air and would like to use a Google Chromecast to stream from my MacBook to my T.V. Is the the same request as an Android APP? I have a limited understanding, but can someone please tell me why I can’t get the website to stream to the Chromecast?

Thanks for all the thoughts, guys. We actually have an Android prototype that we’re in the early stages of testing now. I won’t go into all the reasons why it’s taken so long – I can only say we’re trying our hardest and apologize for it taking so long.

I know we’ve been a bit quiet about our future plans. We are working on some pretty massive things right now – Android is a part of the picture – I can’t go into what they are, but I’ll do my best to share some of that roadmap as we get a little further down the, uh, road. In the meantime, do please keep sharing your feedback, wishes for future development, etc. It helps us make sure we’re on the right path.

yeah, looking forward to that. as far as apple goes, I bought an ipod last year for scientific reasons (e.g. the jump app by the Balsalobre group and some other stuff that runs better with apple) but what keeps confusing me are the two different SUF apps - and none of the sport the Knights only vintage version of the workout we shouldn’t talk about

4 month ago, with the release of the 6.11.0 app, they released a new app. The old one won’t receive any updates and will probably be removed at some point.
If I remember correctly there was a problem with store guidelines or the way the app was created, and the easy solution was to offer a whole new app.

The app itself is identical. Only a few bug fixes since then.

I hope my explanation is accurate - due to my limited technical knowledge. :slight_smile:

is there any way to be part of the beta testing team of the app? I just got a wahoo kickr core and only have an android tablet … Might have to go with one of the other options out there that do support android and once you’re locked in… :wink:

I’m having that same issue with my iPad mini 4. It is really frustrating running either up and down the stairs to the basement TV, or trying to find a spot on the main floor to be able to set up and ride, or do yoga, or any of the other workouts.

I just renewed my SUF subscription for another year, but if no android app comes up, I’ll shop around for another training companion software afterwards!

I really enjoy sufferfest, it helped me achieving goals, the 4dp-test gives way more insight than a regular ftp, the whole environment with mental and physical strength as well as yoga offers a great value as well.

But… This does not help me, if I can’t access any of this as soon, as I am working abroad or am on vacation.
2020 is more than half gone, having either an android app or a dynamic mobile page which allows at least to access anything but the cycling workouts is not too much to ask.

With the announcement today of the Peloton+ bike’s new resistance system . . . we really need that Android so we can hack/load Sufferfest onto the Peloton that my wife will want very soon. My main issue with them has now been resolved. :-o

I’m still hopeful here, but I’ll be honest it’s disappointing. There has been discussion of a “prototype” now for years (literally since right after the new app was released for PC). This isn’t 2009, in the early days of mobile app development. There are tools that make this seamless across platforms that are readily available here.

I still dream of plugging in my S10 to my TV to enter Sufferlandria…
