@michaelGunnulf is there a way to message you in private? I'd like to keep my mail out of comment sections.

Hi everyone!
Just wanted to share with you all the story behind why we built this. I’m a podcast lover, and tend to fill every idle time in my life with podcasts. I also workout at a gym, and as I’m always looking for new ways to fill idle time with podcasts, I’ve realised that I could totally do this in between workout sets. Which lets me finish a 30 minute podcast episode in a 50 minute workout. So I started using Spotify and the Podcast app to switch between music and podcast listening as I workout. However, this process was really convoluted.

So, being an developer I wanted to get this problem solved, and thus we built Shift. The product works really seamlessly, and I feel going to the gym also has a huge productivity bonus. I've also spent a lot of time having fun with it and added features I feel makes sense in a fitness app, such as gamification and workout tracking. You'll get an avatar that levels up and evolves as you workout for instance. Would love to get some feedback here!
