As promised, here‘s the new update with user profiles. Now, you can sign up and have GuitarCardio.com remember your favorite exercise settings. You can also opt to receive a infrequent newsletter from the site, which will likely contain mostly the same material as the blog (though I do have a few ideas for exclusive newsletter content for those loyal users interested enough to sign up).
And just so it is clear: If you give your email address at signup (which you really don’t have to do), I don’t share it with anyone, and I don’t contact you unless you’ve signed up for the newsletter. I hate it when that crap happens to me, and I won’t do it to you.
The other interesting feature is that now when you finish a set of exercises and come back to the main form, it keeps the settings you used to start the last run of exercises – less clicking!
I’ve also made a layout change to the front page that I think gives a more balanced look and takes up less screen space, and fixed a rare crashing bug that nobody complained about so I’ll pretend that nobody noticed it.
I still have a few other things to implement before I call the current iteration done, but it’s mostly under-the-hood stuff. If I do anything visible to you, I’ll post about it here.
Right now I’m trying out a set of Fingerweights, because I thought they looked interesting, and I’ll be posting my impressions here after I’ve had a chance to get a feel for them.
And by the way, if you want to suggest something you’d like reviewed, please do so in the comments – I’m always interested in learning about new toys and tools.
