Android Update Available - Messages, News Feed, and More

We just released a new version of our Android app in Android Market.  This release focuses on adding access to MyFitnessPal's social features within the app, specifically:

  • Friends: You can now invite friends and approve/ignore friend requests from within the app.  You can also view their profile and activity stream by tapping on their username.
  • News Feed: Your news feed is also now viewable from within the app so you can easily keep tabs on how all of your friends are doing and provide each other with support and encouragement.  Create new status update and leave comments on your friends statuses - all within the app.
  • Messages: You can now also use the app to send and read private messages to other MFP members.  You have full access to your inbox so you can compose messages, delete messages, reply, and more.
  • Weekly view: We've created a new "Weekly" view on the Home tab - just tap "Weekly" towards the top of the screen and you'll get a weekly view of your net calorie goal.  
As part of this update, the daily nutritional summary is no longer displayed by default on the Home tab, but it's still there - just tap on "Nutrients" on the Home tab.  If you prefer to see the nutritional summary on the Home tab instead of the news feed, you can go to More > Settings and tap the "Show News Feed on Home Tab" row to turn the news feed off on the home tab.
 
Finally, as a reminder, you can control what status updates get automatically created by going to the "My Home" tab on the website, then "Settings", then "Automatic News Feed Update Settings".  Any changes you make to these settings on the website will also be reflected in the app.  You can also make those changes directly in the app - just go to More > Settings > News Feed Privacy Settings.
 
If you run into any issues/bugs with the new version, please let us know! We'll look into them ASAP.
 
Hope you are all enjoying MFP!
