Version 2.0 is a major revision of the application over 1.0.  Here are some of the new features:

Jogger Screen:

  1. Completely redesigned user interface.

  2. iPhone OS 3.0 compatible.

  3. You can now continue your jog from where you left off if you have to exit JogBuddy to take a phone call or answer a SMS.

  4. JogBuddy voice announces milestones as your jog.  You no longer need to look at the screen to know your progress.

  5. You can select Calories or Minute-Mi (speed) labels to be placed in the center of the screen for easy monitoring.  Simply touch the area above the center label (i.e. Miles) to rotate through the labels you want to center.

  6. You can enter your jogging goals directly in the main screen.  Touch the amber goal labels, and enter valid numbers using the on-screen keyboard.

  7. JogBuddy automatically rotates the screen when you start the workout to make it easy for you to see the screen while jogging.

  8. The first 1,000 meters of jogging are shown in meters.  After 1,000 meters, JogBuddy tracks distance in miles.

Goals Screen:

  1. JogBuddy now calculates the date when you will reach your weight goal, if you were to lose 1.8 pounds of weight per week.

  2. There is now a Calendar applet in this screen.  In this version, the Calendar is simply for convenience.  In the future versions, the Goal screen will allow you to select training programs and suggest a schedule using the Calendar.  Stay tuned.
