I would love to have some kind of profile status updates. One of the best things with Skimble is the friendship you make with other people, and it would be nice to be able to keep them posted other than by pictures and workouts. This might also unclutter the forums a bit. Another thing could be some kind of diary that you can choose to have public or private. A lot of people now keep diaries in the forums which sometimes can be interesting of course but they tend to flood the active topics. And speaking of forums, it would be good if each topic was marked with what forum it was posted in. Other than that, thank you for THE best workout app around!

05 Mar
Totally agree - problem now is that each category only pops up once in the status bar. I anyone else e.g. likes a workout I did, it will overwrite the first like. In a notification area I would be able to see them all together (and probably would be able to mark them as 'seen' or whatever) in one shot.
05 Mar
Was meant as a comment to the reply above...
10 Mar
Sounds good-- we'll see if we can add this in a future update!
12 Mar
Thanks!
19 Mar
Completely agree with Anna.. (was actually going to suggest the same myself). A diary/journal that people could use to post thouhhts, updates, helpful tips, etc for the friends and followers wiuld make an awesome addition to an otherwise excellent app. :)

Please add notifications inside the app.

Its not essy to who see ask you a question or comments you somewere in your many posts.

I know i can receive notifications on the top bar but not the app itself. Most of the times it redirects me to the wrong post.Β 

So i loose the comments or questions somewhere in the apps....

10 Mar
Gotcha, we'll see what we can do.

Is there a way to delete a follower/block someone?

09 Mar
Yes, Beth. You can visit the profile of the person you would like to block but on the website, not via app, and then click the small cogwheel to block him/her.
09 Mar
Ditto with Mihaela!!! :) Just Block them away!!! :)

I wish I could see a calender of all the workouts that I have planned, so that I do not set to many on any specific date.

10 Mar
We'll see what we can do-- thanks!

Make some specific workouts. F.ex. some for lower back or obliques, lower arms...
The App is great and I love it!

10 Mar
Have you seen the exercises section in the app where you can choose exercises according to specific muscles and muscle groups? Although you have to create the workouts yourself of course.
10 Mar
Yes I've seen it. But I think the section could be improved
10 Mar
Definitely.

Anna, I'm using aCalendar+ and it works. I can start the workout. But as I mentioned, I can't always plan my workouts for an exact time, so I'm not using it often. Would be better to plan several workouts for one week and do them when I have the time.

12 Mar
I'm starting to add a few, all the same day and at the same time... Just to keep the links at my fingertips.
19 Mar
Thanks, I'll try it out. I scheduled workouts for the same time like Mihaela since I don't decide beforehand what time I'll work out, but since the app doesn't launch through S Calendar I still have to do a lot of scrolling to find my planned workouts.
19 Mar
aCalendar looks good but I've tried with two different browsers now (Dolphin and Samsung's standard browser) and neither one launches the app. I don't know if the problem's with the browsers or with Skimble.

Apparently there's differences on the app for Apple and Android, e.g. me as an Android user cannot link posts (only different categories of workouts) when replying to someone.

I also cannot use emoticons - they're just not displayed.

And I have seen an overview graph of number of done workouts (which can be accessed through the home tab apparently) over a period of some weeks, also only for Apple users.

Would it be possible to have all this (and maybe I haven't seen anything yet) in Android too?

And for the overview: me I'm a big fan of statistics - it motivates me. Would it be possible to have like a Statistics tab somewhere in the app? This could also bear e.g. my suggested percentages of cardio, arms aso. I took down few posts above.

18 Mar
I use Android and I have the stats with the graph over done workouts, number of weekly workouts goal and current streak in weeks. Is that the one you mean? I can also access the leaderboard from my profile.
18 Mar
I can't find the graph though, maybe it's a PRO thing? *android user*
18 Mar
Hone button of this app. Upper right side Stats. Is this what you're talking about? I use android
19 Mar
I can access it like Heiko and also from the popout menu on the upper left on the home page.

Since a few days I got a 502 Bad Gateway message when I want to read a profile of some members. They are active, because they post in forum and it happens with a lot.

Does any other member have this problem?

13 Mar
Can you email support@skimble.com with more info about which profiles are not working? Thanks and sorry about this.
13 Mar
I will. Thanks for your fast answer:)
17 Mar
I found the troublemaker. It was an update of firefox
17 Mar
Ok, thanks for the update. We also found a performance problem that may have been causing it. That has been fixed and we will keep an eye on this. Thanks for reporting the issue!

I would like to use my android to post pictures on my thread like other users who have a Iphone. I know you can post them on your page but in my group we like to share weight loss photos, healthy meals,etc on the thread. Can you guys look into that. Thanks

13 Mar
Fits into my general iPhone vs. Android post above
13 Mar
Ok thanks for the suggestion! We are working on making both apps have all the same functionality!
19 Mar
And I'd like to add to Matthias post: same functionality on Android/iPhone and website. Right now I can e.g. delete forum posts on Android but not comments on posts, on the website it's the other way around. If I want to delete a comment on a picture or a workout, I have to go to the site. Et cetera.
19 Mar
I can delete comments on pictures from the app O.o *android*
19 Mar
Anna, I can delete forum posts from the website. I also can comment on posts using my android. And I can remove my forum posts on android, but not my comments. As you, I have to go to the website if I want to remove comments I made to workouts. I second your suggestion for same functionality!

Make people able to make variations of a workout (e.g. easy and hard, or elbow and normal) without having to make another workout. This could in theory be abused to make unlimited workouts while not being a PRO, but you can limit it to PROs (but still allow normal people to use the variations feature in PROs' workouts) or limit it for normal people. Or make it so the variations get created automatically.

23 Mar
We'll see what we can do! Thanks!

A section for workout/motivational buddies that would somehow redirect people to this particular section when they start typing a topic about it. Really, it's flooding the forums and sometimes it's like half of the topics are about this.

19 Mar
Yeah or teaching people to read the description of the forum before they post. That wouldn't help against one gazillion workout buddy requests in the active topics tho.
12 Apr
You could make an extra section where you can give your goals and the time you usually work out. And then it could give you a list with possible workout buddies.

Is there a way in this app to create workout by reps, instead of time, like 30 squats, 20 push ups etc..?

If not, then it's my suggestion...

23 Mar
Hi Daneejela, thanks for your suggestion-- we'll see what we can do!

Could you guys like make a section where people in the same area could find one another and have the oppurnity to work out together to meet there goals?
05 Apr
That would be great to have on here! I just moved to a new area and don't know a single person /:
05 Apr
Yea it will be really nice, it would help people to get more motivated and keep on pushing
05 Apr
Exactly! This app has potential for greatness (: So glad I came across it!
06 Apr
We'll see what we can do!
11 Apr
Since the community isn't that big, it's would be very rare that you find someone in your area.

More FREE programs😺, doesn't have to be the long intense programs you have to pay for, but maybe something easy for beginners starting out or the ones that want to start working out and aren't sure which route to go. If that makes sense. πŸ’ͺ

Also, the use of Emoticons would be great, as that is limited to the "Reply" and not the "Comment". I love using Emojis❀. Trying to use them and them not show up is kind of sad😞 and disappointingπŸ’« to me. That's how I show emotion through my words and without them, you can come across the wrong way! 😨

Please improve the liked workouts section and the search-function.

Give us folders for the liked workouts, eg for muscle groups or sort them like the section you have: Abs & Core, Weightlifting, Stretching...

The search-function should list workouts including the name of our seach. Why is the 1st result when I seach "spring" Upper Body Pusher"?

11 Apr
The first few results are the same no matter what I search for. It's really weird.
11 Apr
I thought something was up with that. I thought I was doing something wrong lol
11 Apr
Lol no Amber, it's just silly to use
13 Apr
Gotcha-- we'll look into this for a future update!
13 Apr
Great! Thanks Skimble

Whz can't I select Claudia as Audio Trainer anymore? Please fix this bug and make more workouts eith her as Audio Trainer!

12 Apr
Sorry for the confusion. You can still select Claudia - just tap the 'swap' button on the bottom of the screen right before you start a workout (to the right of the current audio trainer's picture) and you can then select from all the available trainers.

I would like to do a variety of my Liked workouts, but I have to keep switching back and forth between Likes and History.
Is it possible to add the most recent workout dates for Liked workouts?

Hi Anik, we'll see what we can do!

The ability for leaders to remove people from teams and also inbox notifications?
I know yall are working hard at fixing a lot of issues for these fine folks here, so no pressure. Just thought I'd throw my two cents in.

13 Apr
Also, I don't know if it's been stated, but the option to choose what category created workouts go in. I have a created ab routine that shows up as yoga...it's not. At all.

Gotcha-- we'll see what we can do!

Yesterday I did Absolutely Amazing Abs and I couldn't select Claudia. The App said, tgat I had to connect to the internet, but I was connected to Internet!

13 Apr
Hm, that's odd-- try logging out and logging back in to see if that resets the app. Also, try toggling between your wifi and network connections to see if that changes anything (you might be on a weak internet connection).
13 Apr
I've been having the same problem a few times too
13 Apr
And I tried with both wifi and 3G, didn't make a difference
13 Apr
Had the same issues lately sometimes
13 Apr
If you run into this issue, can you try swapping to a different speaker (e.g. Greg or Lisa) and let us know if you have the same problem? Thanks!

Btw. Thank you Skimble, this app is the best workout app ever created. πŸ˜„

Group chats. For example, there is a group of people on here we all want to be work out buddies but there is not easy way to chat and see each others progress

24 Apr
Thanks for the suggestion! We'll see what we can do :)
02 May
Try making a team, as you are able to to do. Invite the other dudes to the team, form the team, then off you go, communicating only to and amongst your team. Enjoy.

To be able to move this app to the SD card on our phones. .. I don't have space to update this app for this reason.

19 Apr
Yes, I'd love that too! At least the "Skimble data" which I assume are pics, vids and audio of the workouts I have done and they occupy like 1GB. I've also written an email to ask if it's safe to delete them because last time I ended up not receiving push notifications until the latest update o.o
19 Apr
Yes, exactly! I was wondering the same thing
24 Apr
Hi guys, unfortunately this isn't something we're planning on offering in the near future. Sorry for the inconvenience!
