UEA+Moves App

UEA+MOVES UPDATES/NEW FEATURES We have been listening to your feedback regarding how we could improve the UEA+MOVES app and what new features you would like to see. We are excited to announce the app will be updated and have new features that include:

  • A more detailed breakdown of daily points summary – so it is clearer how many points you earned and what the points were for (e.g. activity breakdown).
  • Manual sync – this will allow users to manually sync their data  so your data will be pulled through immediately for that day rather than having to wait until the following morning.
  • Strava being added as a direct connection – many of you have asked if we can add Strava as one of the options for apps that Moves connects with – this will now be possible and for those of you using Garmin technology– you can link Garmin to Strava and then connect so your data is pulled through.
  • Swimming added as an activity - for those of you that have tech that records swimming you can now get points for this on Moves in addition to getting points for steps walked, miles ran and miles cycled
  • Group goals will now exist in a private group - this means you can set up goals in your own private group so you can work together with your friends to achieve certain targets i.e. walk the distance of the moon and back. This will make the app more fun, social and interactive.
  • Users will automatically receive a push notification informing them when they have completed a challenge – this means it is clearer when you have finished a challenge. On the challenges tab it will also inform you how far you have to go to complete that challenge
Existing users will will need to go to their app store to update if their phone doesn’t do this automatically. We hope you are as excited as we are about the new UEA+MOVES developments and are looking forward to exploring the updated app.
