There is a new app update in the works with some exciting new features and improvements. In the mean time, I’d like to find out more about how everyone is using the app. Do you follow a specific training program? If so, which one, and what is your sport or training goal?
What’s new in 1.3
- Updated look and feel for iOS 7
- New stopwatch UI and one rep max calculator
- Filter exercises between built-in and user created
- Usability improvements for set entry
- Templates user interface improvements
- Bug fixes including:
- Workouts not refreshing when scheduled
- Templates not persisting after creating them in some cases
The next version of Strength Mark has a new look to fit with the modern feel of iOS 7 along with other improvements and features that made the cut. It should be available in the store in December 2013. I take all the feedback in the app store seriously and am working to integrate some of those suggestions and complaints in the app. If anyone has any features they wish would be in the app, please leave a comment here, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or write a review in the app store.
For those of you who are still using iOS 6, you can still download version 1.2.1 for as long as you want from the store.

As the creator of Strength Mark, it’s probably no surprise that I use the Strength Mark app in my own training. I have been using Strength Mark to calculate and track my deadlift weights for a progression-based scheme, which helped me achieve my personal record (PR) of 505 lbs on deadlift. That’s 40 lbs over my previous record. What can Strength Mark do for you?
Strength Mark 1.2 was released in the app store today. Here’s what’s new:
- An improved template management interface. It’s easier to create a template and to browse the contents of existing templates.
- A new notes indicator to show which sets have notes attached to them. Read what you wanted to try for next time.
Bugs fixed and performance improvements
- Removing an exercise that was part of a template caused issues.
- Faster presentation times for multiple interfaces.
- Scheduling a template didn’t clear out status flags and didn’t preserve some weight values.
- Other minor bug fixes.
