Hello r/Apple! ?
I’m an iOS developer and a gym enthusiast, and for the last year I have been working on an app to track your gym sessions.
The reason I started this project is that after years of trying out different gym apps I couldn’t find one that I really loved. Especially for Apple Watch, which I think is the perfect device for this, I haven’t seen an app that really nails the UI for tracking sets and reps. I think Liftin’ can offer something new and different here.
+ Easy to use app for gym workout tracking on both iPhone and Apple Watch.
+ You can set up rules to automatically increase or decrease the weights depending on your results.
+ Graphs to visualize your short and long term progress.
The app is also integrated with Apple Health so if you use the watch app your workouts counts towards your daily activity goals.
Liftin’ has a native look and feel, the design is mostly inspired by apps made by Apple. I want it to feel right at home on iOS.
Liftin’ is a premium app, but is free to try. All features are available in the free version so you can try it out, but the number of workouts you can track is limited to five per month.
To use the full app without limitations is $4.99 for the first year, and then $14.99 per year. I know many of you are not fans of recurring costs for apps, but for the quality and longevity of the app I think this is the way to go. I plan to work on Liftin’ for years to come and keep adding features and improvements, and I will always prioritize my long term users.
In version 1.0.0 have added two new features that many beta testers have been asking for:
If you don’t want to specify the number of reps for an exercise, but instead input any number during workout, you can now do that. Just select “free reps“ in the reps picker when you setup your exercise. You can also see the rep count from your previous try so you can try to beat that.
I have got great feedback during the beta period, and I will implement many of your requested features. Over the next few months I will work on these new features:
+ Assisted and weighted exercises
+ Time based exercises
+ Super sets
+ Custom equipments
+ Localization to more languages
If you have ideas that you would like to see in Liftin’, let me know! Use the feedback button in the app, or just send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

A big thanks to this sub and all the people who have been beta testing for the last few months, you have been super nice and super helpful!

I am looking forward your feedback! ?
