Get SparkPeople Community & Coaching On the Go!

By , SparkPeople Blogger

When we released the new, FREE version of our Nutrition Tracker app earlier this year, we asked for feedback about what would help YOU get more out of SparkPeople. You gave us some great ideas,  so we took the most popular suggestions and built them into the app.

Starting today, you can update your app and enjoy these new features:

  1. Take the SparkPeople Community with you! We’ve built mobile chat boards right into the app for easy access wherever you are. You can also easily check your SparkPage on the go.
  2. Want to set a small reminder to help you reach your goals? Check out the new (free!) SparkPeople Coaching Center. Here, you can get small reminders, coaching notifications, and great advice from our SparkPeople food, fitness, and motivation experts.
  3. Connect your favorite fitness tracking device with our app! Set up your Fitbit, Jawbone Up, or RunKeeper app to feed your step data into your SparkPeople account from your mobile phone.

These updates are available now for both Android and iPhone users. If you’re new to our Calorie Counter and Weight Loss app, you can download it at Google Play, the Apple App Store, or the Amazon App Store. Give it a try and tell us what you think! Thanks and SparkCheers!

How do I get the mobile chat on my tablet or is it even possible? I am not tech savvy. I have it on my phone, however, the phone is burning up my battery and causing my phone to overheat? I love the chat feature and if any new messages come up, I do get notified on my tablet. Thank you Report
The updated app is eating battery life like CRAZY! Before the update, it used minimal battery. Now the SparkPeople app is using 42% of my battery. Is this due to the mobile chat? Report
Windows phone. Report
Not everyone uses an Android or an Apple phone. Some of us use the windows phone (a really great phone!) and would appreciate it if you would create these apps to be used on the windows phone and stop discriminating against windows phone users. Report
AWESOME APP!!! Another resource that guides me and motivates me to be successful in my journey to good health. Thanks, Sparkguy! Report
I have the original app on my first version Kindle Fire. When I clicked on the link for the new app, it came us as not compatible for my Kindle. I wonder if this will always be the case, or if I need to think of a new tablet. Report
How about Windows 8 phones also? Report
Awesome mobile app, I love it! Sparkpeople just keeps getting better!

Thanks Chris & Sparkpeople Team Report
I dont see the selection for visiting my SPage Report
Unfortunately, I have the Windows phone, and I can't get it.
I can't get the Google App store to work for me, either.

Edited - sorry - that was yesterday when I tried. Today it works - but it says I already have it installed. Report
Just upated the app on my Android and love it. This will be so handy having these features at my fingertips. With the Spat and the Sparkpeople apps I can now Spark all day long no matter where I am! Thank you Sparkpeople! Report
Not sure if it's because I originally had the paid version of this app, but Google Play store has no update available for me ? Report
I am excited to get into the new changes and learn the new app. I like what I see so far. I can't find the section for spinning for team point though. Am I missing it? I use that a lot. Report
The new app allows for Fitbit, Jawbone Up, or RunKeeper app to feed your step data into your SparkPeople account from your mobile phone.... but it doesn't allow the Spark Tracker??? Really?? Why would they not allow their own product to sync with their own app? Am I missing something??? Any help would be awesome! Report
i can't log in. i was logged in just fine yesterday and now it's saying incorrect username/password. Report
I uninstalled and reverted to the old version as soon as I discovered you can't get the team bonus points anymore with the new app :( Report
Awesome!! I was really hoping for a community-like app from SparkPeople. Thank you and keep up the good work :) Report
Downloading it now... can't wait to try it out! I think getting to the groups from my phone will be awesome! Report
What is the name of the app? Report
Does the Spark Tracker sync directly to the mobile phone? Report
I've already downloaded the new version on my tablet. Thank you Spark People for always improving this wonderful site. I really don't know what I would do if you did not exist. Report
What about WINDOWS phones? No app for them. Report
My pad automatically updated. Love the new features! (will make traveling a lot easier without the laptop!) Report
I'm enjoying the new features! Keep up the great work Report
I'm using the SPAT, is that able to sync with the mobile phone? Report
I've been using the spark mobile app and love it. So I'm excited about the new features. Thanks Report
For me there is really not much of a difference but I am sure many other members will appreciate the update. I guess I am just out of tune with the rest of the community because my oft-requested updates are still ignored...ability to manually enter miles in the fitness tracker and have that tracked, ability to view the app in landscape.

It's great that I can sync RunKeeper now but I don't put in all my miles using an app. So I have to remember times and distances until I can get to a computer and access the main site. It would be really great if the mobile fitness tracker had the mileage tab too. Report
My SparkPoints on the Leaderboard are wrong--very low. Also, I did not get the 1 SparkPoint for reading the Coach hint for the day. Report
This is fantastic! Thank you for the update. All I had to do was hit update and the new items was downloaded, including Spark Coach. I am very excited about this update. Report
Tried it out on my android but can't see what's different Report
So far I love it! I will have to try it out tomorrow when I track my food! Then I will be able to give you more feedback! Report
You are making my journey to better health easier! Thanks for the new upgrade. I already use the app on a daily basis, especially when away from my computer. And now to have the Coaching Center on it, too! This is great! Thanks, Chris!!! Report
any idea when it will work with windows 8? Report
OMG! I just downloaded this to my Kindle Fire and I'm loving it. So easy to download and sign in. Really colorful and I love anything I can just click on. This app will get a good workout. Thanks so much!
