Using Selfloops with RunGap

Connecting your Selfloops Surge Account

To connect an existing Selfloops account:

  1. Select "Accounts & Settings" from the upper left menu. 
  2. Select "Selfloops."
  3. Tap "Connect", enter your username and password and authorise RunGap to access your account.

RunGap will now connect securely to your Selfloops account. 

If you have lost your password you can reset it by entering your email address at this link: https://www.selfloops.com/accounts/password/new.

Sharing your activities on Selfloops

You can upload a single activity directly to Selfloops by opening it from the "Activities" list, tapping the "..." button in the upper right corner and choosing "Share." This will bring up a page where you can choose to share the activity to on or more of the most popular services including Selfloops along with an optional message. The activity will then be uploaded to Selfloops and you will hear a "swoosh" sound when the upload is complete. 

Similarly, you can upload all your activities directly to Selfloops by choosing "Share & Export" from the upper left menu and then "Selfloops." RunGap will then upload all activities not previously uploaded to Selfloops. This may take a while the very first time, but RunGap will automatically skip previously uploaded activities which have not been modified and therefore subsequent exports will complete much faster.

Finally you can use Auto Sharing to share new workouts as they are imported from other services.

Please note that the Swag Bag [1] is required in order to share activities directly to Selfloops.

Disconnecting your Selfloops Account

To disconnect your Selfloops account, select "Accounts & Settings" from the upper left menu and then "Selfloops." Next, choose "Log out" to disconnect the account.

Troubleshooting

If you see the message "Unable to post activity to Selfloops" it means that RunGap is unable to contact the Selfloops service and upload a workout. This is most likely a communications problem or a problem with your Selfloops account. Please check your Internet connection and try to connect using the Selfloops website to verify your account and the service.

If you have lost your password you can reset it by entering your email address at this link: https://www.selfloops.com/accounts/password/new.

For other problems, please contact support@rungap.com.

Data Liberation Score

The "Data Liberation Score" is a number in the range 1–5 where 1 is poor and 5 is best. The score indicates how easy it is to access and export your hard-earned workout data from a particular service. Unfortunately it is still common practice that fitness service providers love their users so much that they can't image them leaving and either forget to put handles on the inside of the door or make the door very, very tiny. The Data Liberation Score is meant to bring some attention to this problem

Selfloops has a private API for 3rd party developers, which allows easy upload of workout data. To get data back out you will need to download workouts one by one from the website. Therefore Selfloops gets an average score of "3."
