Have you Suffered today, Sufferlandrians?
You may have noticed that not much has happened with The Sufferfest app lately. We’ve made some minor improvements in terms of performance, etc. but nothing major and certainly nothing since the Tour of Sufferlandria. You might be wondering what’s going on. You might be thinking we’re just lounging on the beaches of the Great Lactic Acid Sea. Maybe you think Wahoo has just not been able to do anything with us. Maybe you think I should just finish this ramble and explain why our Android app isn’t out yet (I’ll get to that).
Well, as mentioned previously, we continue to work behind-the-scenes on an entirely new platform for The Sufferfest. It’s the biggest, boldest, most significant thing we’ve ever created. It has new platforms (Android works!), new content and experiences, new functions, new designs and even better sports science. It’s the foundation for our future. Product management, engineering, design, content, customer service, marketing…everyone is fully committed to this…and that’s why you’re not seeing anything happen on the SUF app.
At the moment, we have a large team of Beta testers – including Wahoo employees as well as significant number of you from the Sufferlandrian community – who are all using this new platform (including Android!) on a daily basis. Their feedback and ideas are helping us improve this platform even more. We’re still building it, but we’re on track and not far from having it fully assembled. At that point, we go into our backlog of refinements and then into a bunch more testing to ensure it is stable and delivers the kind of experience it needs to.
We haven’t yet set a launch date. But when that date comes, I can’t wait to talk with you about it. I feel absolutely sure that you’ll understand why this has taken us so long and also that the wait was worth it.
Thanks for your patience and support. Happy to answer questions.
More than you, David
