Hope that you’re all having good week! We just released another update to the app, with a few bug fixes and enhancements, along with a brand new Supporter option.
As you all know, the Caliber app is completely free to use, without any paywalls or restrictions on functionality. Our model is different from most other fitness apps, in that we earn money through our coaching programs - both Premium and now Pro - which allows us to keep the app itself free.
That being said, while we’re very proud of the quality of our coaching experience, we recognize that not everyone needs/wants a coach - and as we’ve grown, it's been heartening (and honestly surprising) to have many people tell us that they want to donate to the app and support our mission.
With the launch of Supporter, if you’re so inclined, you’ll now be able to do exactly that.
Aside from the priceless sense of satisfaction that you’ll feel from supporting Caliber and our continued development, you’ll also get two other more tangible benefits from being a Supporter:
- No coaching pop-ups as part of the app experience
- A Supporter badge that will be visible as part of your social profile
To be clear, becoming a Supporter does not unlock any additional functionality in the app. A big part of our mission is to make effective strength training accessible to all, so fundamentally Supporter allows you to be a part of this too.
If you’re interested, you can sign up in the Menu section of the app.
Outside of Supporter, here are the other updates that were made as part of this release:
- Updated the loading icon across the entire app, thereby breaking the association between our brand logo and screen loading
- Adjusted the rest timer so that it dings upon completion even when the app is backgrounded (iOS-only right now)
- Fixed an issue where images were loading sideways in certain cases
- Fixed an issue where the Strength Score graphs were not populating data points for certain users
Up next, we’re currently working on some enhancements to the exercise Track tab - adding a stopwatch, streamlining the rest timer experience, and reworking the notes. Stay tuned!
