Another release of Striver, the Strava client for Windows Phone, has just hit the store!
– Settings has the addition of a configurable range of audible voice notifications to keep you informed during a recording.
– Optional Toast Notifications for new followers, kudos and comments.
– About and Help contains some recording tips and a link the online user guide.
I hope you enjoy these new features and please do get in touch about any bugs or feedback about Striver.
Another update to Striver has just be released to the Windows Phone store. This Strava client now has improved activity detail pages that includes more activity summary info, altitude chart, comments & kudos.
See the Striver page for much more info.
Striver is going to support multiple languages in the near future. Would any multilingual users out there be willing to check over some screen shots to make sure the translations are good? I have used translate.google.com to do this before but it’s much better to have a native speaker validate the results.
The first release of Striver is now available in the Windows Phone store! So if you’re a cyclist or runner with a Windows Phone give it a try. Any feed back would be much appreciated.
It’s been a while since we had an update to Timeshare (what more can you add to a stopwatch?). However, it’s been updated to v1.4 based on some feedback. You can now swap the positions of the start/stop and reset/lap buttons and added ability to hide the background image.
My son and I have got into cycling recently and we have both discovered STRAVA. I love STRAVA. The way it compares your rides to other users and analyses the data is superb. You need a GPS enabled device to make the most of STRAVA but the options on Windows Phone are very limited as there is not an official app and very few 3rd party apps that integrate with STRAVA. So I have have started work on a dedicated STRAVA client for Windows Phone.
The initial requirements are to record a ride and upload it directly to your STRAVA account, view your account details, activities and feed.
A Beta version is now in testing. View more info here.
I’m Teamwestwood junior (age 12) and play for the National Children’s Orchestra and developed this windows phone app as a school project. I hope you like it!

I’m getting some mixed reviews for the Cockney and Yoda Talk apps. Many of those which are low scores are from people who expected the translation to be spoken out loud back to them. Maybe the name of the app gave them that impression? I would love to achieve this and I know I can but only using a standard male or female voice. That would be rubbish though. Probably worse than nothing at all. To do this with a voice that actually sounds like a cockney or Yoda would be hellishly difficult to do. I can’t think of anywhere that I have seen this kind of feature before i.e a user provides some random text and the voice of a celebrity or character speaks it back to you.
For both the Cockney Talk and Yoda Talk apps I’m looking into allowing users to create a user profile and then allowing them to instant message each other with their message being translated automatically into Cockney or Yoda Talk.
Welcome to the Team Westwood blog site. This will be a place to post information about my Windows Phone app development. I currently have 4 apps in the marketplace (well 2 are really the same but one has adverts and the other is a paid app).
The apps are TimeShare & TimeShare Free which are stopwatch apps. Then there’s Cockney Talk and Yoda Talk which translate English text into Cockney and Yodaish. I developed them in my spare time just for fun and to learn about the Windows Phone platform. Below are the large tile images of the apps which link to their pages on the marketplace.
