App Update: Guide to New Layout and Navigation

We’re excited to share our newest app release with you. This update will allow us to push updates smoother, add new features faster and efficiently build an Android integration (which we know a lot of you have been patiently waiting for). Follow the guided walkthrough below to get acquainted with the changes and learn how to navigate smoothly through with the new app update.

Guide to Newest App Update

When you first log into the app you’ll notice a completely different layout. With the addition of top and bottom navigation bars, you’ll be able to move around the app quicker and more efficiently. The top navigation bar consists of your Fetch button, notifications and create/add buttons. While the four main bottom navigation tabs are challenges, newsfeed, friends and more.

The bottom navigation will always remain the same. You will toggle through these options depending on where you’d like to head in the app. The top navigation bar will remain consistent throughout the app, but will be contextual to the parent page it is on. What this means is that each top bar navigation item will have different actions depending on which bottom tab you are in. The Fetch button will always be located in the top left hand corner for you to manually pull in your steps from your device’s cloud.

With these additions you’ll be gliding around the app with ease. Whatever you need is only a click away!

Challenges Section

Your challenges section will now act as your “dashboard”. Under the “my challenges” tab you’ll be able to view your current step count along with all of your upcoming, started and completed challenges. Something new that we’ve added is the ability to view your previous day’s steps, distance and active minutes. Toggle the left and right arrows at the top of this section to view your activity for the past 30 days.
