Google Analytics in Latest Beta

In beta release 14, we’ve starting using analytics to get some idea of how our customers are using iSMARTtrain, and the help us plan future enhancements and features, based on what our users are actually using.

The setup we’re using is based on Google Anaylitcs. We’re tracking the following:

  • When the app is opened
  • When data is downloaded from a device, we record what the device is used
  • When a session is added, we record the sport, distance and duration of the session.

All of this data is record anonymously – no data identifying the user is recorded, nor is any geographical data beyond what Google Analytis provides (i.e. we’re not storing your GPS data).

If you wish to opt-out of the analytics, go to the ‘Analytics’ tab in the preferences and uncheck the ‘Use Analytics’ checkbox.

Any questions or comments, please let me know.

New File Format for Beta 10

In Beta 10, we’ve moved from using a flat file format to a bundle. There’s various reasons for this, including compatibility with the forthcoming iOS version.

You’ll need to convert any existing documents you have to the new file format as follows:

  1. Open the existing file in iSMARTtrain
  2. Select ‘Export to JSON’ from the file menu. Save the file that’s created and make a note of its location. By default, it’ll have the same name as the file you’re exporting.
  3. Create a new document by selecting ‘New’ from the ‘File’ menu. This document will be in the file format.
  4. Select ‘Import from JSON’ from the file menu and select the file you created in step 2.
  5. The data from the old-format document will be importing into the new document.

To tell if a document is in the new or old file format, look at the file extension (this may be hidden). It’ll be ‘.db’ for an old-format file, and ‘.istdb’ for a new-format one.

As always, if you got any questions/problems, let me know – stuart@yellowfield.co.uk

Garmin Express

Just a quick heads-up – for the moment, don’t upgrade from Garmin ANT Agent to Garmin Express. It looks like Garmin Express doesn’t keep a local copy of the files it downloads for your device, so there’s no data for iSMARTtrain to pick up. I’m investigating this further, and will hopefully have a solution soon.
