One of the most popular fitness apps on Google Play has long been MyFitnessPal. This was true in spite of how it looked – the app's UI was absolutely awful, and performance left a lot to be desired. But no more. MyFitnessPal has gotten a new Holo interface in the most recent update.
The developers of MyFitnessPal completely redesigned the app. Performance is considerably better, and you could legitimately call the design Holo (#YOLO). The way tabs behave isn't quite within the guidelines, but the overall vibe is much closer to the way Android is supposed to look in this day and age. Here's the full changelog:
- Improved navigation
- More consistent user experience
- Cleaner screen structure
- French, German, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese language support
- Expanded unit support for weight, height, distances logged, and energy consumed and burned.
All that other stuff is nice, but the new UI is the headlining feature here. Take a look at the old busted interface in the screenshots below. Yikes. Full PR is at the bottom.
