Integrating Voice Commands

 In the post-app era, where you have Chatbots, it has become increasingly important for you to integrate voice commands into your app. This is specifically true for the workout apps, wherein users need to perform certain tasks while working out. They cannot stop working out, control the app and resume the workout. That would hinder their experience. With voice commands, the users can continue working out while they are commanding the app to perform certain functions.

It is important to integrate one of the virtual assistants to your mobile app. You will need to work in tandem with Chatbot technology in order to boost the overall app experience.


Video Training Feature

Videos are important for personal trainer app.

  • The one you are training is not next to you. If you want to give them a good idea about the exercises, you need to show it to them
  • Videos help demonstrate the workout perfectly
  • You will also be able to tell them the wrong methods of performing the workout so that they avoid a jerk or something terrible

Video APIs need to be integrated into the app. This can cause troubles in-app optimization. Either your app takes up a lot of space or, your app takes a longer time to load. Either way, you are about to lose a precious conversion. The best way to handle it is to optimize your video feature.

If you are developing an Android app, you will need to use Android multimedia framework which allows you to play video/audio from raw resources. For iOS, you will need to use MPMoviePlayerController. Such frameworks help in reducing the loading speed and improving the app’s usage.


Music for Training

Workout and music go hand in hand, which is why you need to explore music options for your workout app. You will need to consider implementing the right audio framework for your app. There are several options that are available for iOS and Android. Depending on the OS you are developing the app for, you can choose the audio framework.


Consider Wearables

When you are developing a fitness app, you cannot ignore the wearable technology. You will need to develop the app for the wearable technology as well so that they are not just optimized for the platform but also harness the potential of the wearable.

The wearable based mobile app will improve your tracking and measuring capabilities.


AI-based workout apps

Artificial intelligence helps improve your user’s workout capabilities and allows you to offer a workout that matches their personal needs. You might want to consider incorporating artificial intelligence to gain insights into your user’s workout habits so that you know what they prefer. This will help your app to be smart and useful to the user and might increase the engagement ratio for your app.
