It’s been only a month since Active Fitness was released on Windows Phone, and I was amazed at the growth! In one month we had close to 50,000 downloads, from 95 countries. In the first month our users ran, biked, jogged and tracked the distance from Earth to Moon with Active Fitness app! Wow, that’s pretty impressive for a Windows Phone app that’s just beginning its career. We had more than 500 reviews, with 4.5+ out of 5 ratings. And for all of that, THANK YOU!
Active Fitness: Wir sprechen Deutsch! Nous parlons français ! ¡ Hablamos a Español! 日本語を話す ！我们讲中文 ！Мы говорим по-русски!
Many of our users come from countries that speak languages other than English, and we were working hard on getting the app translated to native languages for our users. You can now download Active Fitness app in German, French, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Chinese and more languages are coming.
Special thanks to our translators and those who simply helped with reviewing and translating the app: Lily Li, Marc Maciej, Nana Spade, Marie Fanget, thanks to you our app can now speak new languages!
Why is it important to translate apps?
Remember, when you build apps, you are speaking to the world. According to this resource, English represents only 4.83% of native speakers. Mandarin is at 12.44%, Spanish 4.85%. Active Fitness app users have a different distribution, besides English speaking countries, like the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India and the UK, we have many users in Germany, Spanish speaking countries, French speaking countries, Russia, China and Japan.
For us to translate the app is a way to say thank you to our users.
Active Fitness also SPEAKS all these languages!
Active Fitness has a great feature that helps athletes when they cannot look at the screen: our audio cues help users, just like a coach would gently remind you that you have a few more miles to reach your goal. If your Windows Phone has a voice installed, Active Fitness will also speak to you. Enjoy!
