If you need testing or UI design help or even coding work let me know.

Hi,

I would like to add the features of other running watches, such as intervals, HR zones, laps, etc.; these would be very useful for runners. The tic fitness app really doesn't have much. It cannot export anything, but they said they would add runkeeper or strava sync. I will definitely need some help in the future.

Right now the main BLOCKER is no access to the live gps location. I have a work around but it is not ideal at all (mentioned in updates). I have also contacted mobvoi about gps access and they will not allow it. If people really want this app to happen we need to get mobvoi to allow gps access.

Thanks for your interest!


I support this request

Good luck with your project. Will keep an eye on this tread.

Think it's strange that they don't allow gps access. Doesn't make any sence and limits what apps can be developed. I hope they will change their mind.

Great!
What about github? Did you add a repo?

Hey Tic'ers!

UPDATE(5): Nov. 28, 2016
-sorry for the late updates, I have not forgotten about this app!
-currently working with mobvoi to get temporary gps access for development
-created gps service to run in background, so if app is accidentally exited it will still track until you re-enter the app and stop tracking
