iFitness is an iOS application that was available in the Apple App store. A few weeks ago the app mysteriously disappeared.
Where did the iFitness app go?
What’s happened with iFitness? Through my various searches no one seems to know for sure. All we do know is that it is no longer available in the app store. The developer Hooman Zohoor web site for iFitness still links and refers to the app as if it is available. The developer has an email listed as email@example.com and says contact anytime. However, I’ve contacted several times starting over a month ago before and after the app disappeared. The developer has never responded. Have you had any success contacting them? Where is the ifitness app?
I can’t re-download iFitness as it’s no longer available in the app store
Well this is true. However, this is why I always advise frequent computer syncs with your iOS devices. And / or to purchase apps on your computer first. If you have the app on your computer then you can obviously restore it to your device. Otherwise you may be out of luck. If your device is jailbroken, you can of course install it from a cracked app source (I’m against stealing apps. However, in the case you paid for the app and it’s no longer available for re-download. I don’t see this as steading).
Does iFitness still work?
Even though it was removed from the app store. iFitness does still work fully with current and previous iOS firmwares. In fact, iFitness has a built in feature which allows you to backup and restore your workout data to their servers. This feature still works as well. Which is kind of strange. If iFitness completely disappeared from the app store you would expect the online features to store working. Maybe iFitness will make a return to the app store? Maybe it was just removed from the US store? As the developer doesn’t respond all we can do is guess.
What app is there to replace iFitness?
I’ve tried out several apps and I have yet to find one that provides what I would replacement status for iFitness. Have you found an iFitness replacement? If so, let me know. What I’ve seen so far was lacking in the sense of not having enough exercises to choose from, logs that are not sufficient or detailed, and / or bad iPod control integration.
For now as I have iFitness backed up in iTunes and installed on my iPhone. I will continue to use it. In the event something changes with iOS down the road. I will continue to look for a replacement.

iFitness code sold back with new name Full Fitness
I originally posted an article talking about iFitness Removed From The App Store. The topic got a lot of feedback as users were wondering what was going on. A commenter on this site Ohmzzz made mention of a new App “Full Fitness” that looked pretty similar to iFitness. I decided to do a little further research.
After being contacted by the developer. It appears that the app does indeed have similarities. However, the reason being the previous code was sold and is being handled by a new team. Therefore, you will see some updates to come.
Free Full Fitness Promo Codes!
The new developer of Full Fitness was kind enough to provide some promotional codes. I already went ahead and purchased the app so I can’t take advantage. However, that just means instead of 4 I have 5 to give away to my commenters so just let me know that you want one and I’ll email it out to you. First come first serve.

Full Fitness Removed From The App Store
Full Fitness has now been removed from the App store, as it’s former app iFitness. Why was Full Fitness removed from the App store? At this point I can only speculate, but I’d guess it had a lot to do with the developers of crappy apps complaining. We will see how this develops.
