When you first sign up you can do so with your email, Facebook or Google+ account (sign up and sign in with Google+ is only available on Android and the website). No matter which option you choose, remember that you have to use the same sign in method on the website and in the app for your data to sync between the platforms.

When you have adjusted all the necessary settings, tap the big green start button to begin your workout (or the number in the black circle to start the countdown).
Social content screen
After you press the red stop button on the workout screen, the social content screen will appear. This screen allows you to tag your Endomondo friends in the workout, add photos that you've taken during the workout, add a comment to the workout and choose whether or not you want to share the workout on Facebook.
The app will automatically suggest Endomondo friends to tag, if they were tracking on the same route and at the same time as you. The friends you tagged last will also be suggested.
It looks like the image below:
The social content screen is available for Android users with an Endomondo version newer than 8.8.0, iPhone users with version 8.3.0 or newer.
The social content screen can be enabled/disabled by going to Settings > Workout > Social Content and toggle the on/off button. The screen is on by default.
You can also access the social content screen later on, if you want to add more comments/photos/friends to the workout.
- iPhone you get to it by going to History > Workout > Tap the icon with the arrow pointing out of the box.
- Android and BlackBerry 10 you get to it by going to History > Workout > Tap the "+" icon at the top of the screen.
Please note that if you have Facebook on by default (Settings > Facebook), you won't be able to turn Facebook sharing off on the Social Content Screen.
Read this guide for more information about sharing on Facebook.
Keep screen on while tracking
How you keep the screen on depends on the phone you use. Most phones will dim or turn off the screen after a while, but on most phones you can also edit the display settings and customize when the screen will timeout.
- Android - On Android phones you can go to Settings > Display / Sound & Display > Screen Timeout.
- iPhone – Our Endomondo app for iPhone will leave the display light on until you hit the On/Off button on the top, this will turn off the screen to save battery.
- BlackBerry 4.3 - 7.0 – The steps can vary from phone to phone, but should be similar to these steps. Options > Display > Screen Display > Backlight Timeout and set the screen timeout to the desired time.
- Windows Phone – It is only possible to edit the screen timeout on some Windows Phones. Go to Settings > Lock+Wallpaper (if available) and set the screen timeout to the desired time.
Be aware that if the display light is turned on all the time, the battery will be used much faster.
On most phones you can press the On/Off button after you have started your workout. The screen will turn off and Endomondo will keep tracking. This will save battery while tracking.
If you are doing a sport such as swimming, where you can't carry your phone, or weight training, where it doesn't really make sense to use GPS tracking, you can add your workout manually.
To manually add a workout on the website, tap "New Workout" in the green menu bar. That will bring up five options, of which the first three are relevant to you.
- New workout with no route
Use this option if the workout doesn't have a route, e.g. if you worked out in a gym,or if you just don't want to bother picking a route for your workout.
- Select route for new workout
Use this option if you want to select an existing route for the workout.
- Draw route for new workout
Use this option if you want to draw a route for the workout on a map
To add a workout manually you need to go to "History". On iPhone you'll see a green button at the top of the list saying "Enter New Workout". On Android you'll see this icon: in the upper right hand corner of the screen (more recent App updates will show it on the bottom right hand corner with "+" sign). Tapping the button/icon will bring up a screen that allows you to enter sport, start time of the workout, duration and distance.
