Manual distance input for ZombieLink and updates to both apps

Since the launch of Zombies, Run! 2, we’ve been continuing to update the app on both iOS and Android platforms, as well as the online ZombieLink service.

This week, we’ve added a much requested feature to your ZombieLink account: you can now manually update your distance for any run log, and it’s particularly useful for all of our players who play on treadmills. It’s also a solution for players who experience issues with GPS tracking. 

To manually enter your run distances, simply follow these steps:

  1. If you are logged in and looking at their own profile page.

  2. An edit button (replaces hidden cog) now appears on each month set

  3. Click on the edit button to toggle editing mode

  4. Edit runs as appropriate

  5. Runs will save automatically once a field has been changed

  6. A save spinner and finally a green tick will indicate when the run has finished saving

  7. Upon save the calorie count will be recalculated using the weight of the user when they synced the run

  8. Click “Finished Editing” button to return to normal view

Next up, we’ve released version 2.1.2 of Zombies, Run! for iPhone and iPod Touch. This update fixes a bunch of bugs, as well as adding a handy dialogue box when you complete a mission so that you know which buildings can be built and upgraded with your new supplies. We’ve also fixed an issue that prevented ZombieLink Codex entries from updating. Version 2.1.2 is available right now and we’re already working on the next update, which will include some pretty neat new features!

As for Android, our most recent 2.0.5 update for Android brought radio mode back! You’ll be prompted to download the Radio content on the news page, and this is necessary to start hearing both Season 1 and Season 2 Radio after completed missions. This update also rewards those of you who completed Season 1 missions with materials to spend on your base.

If you haven’t been keeping an eye on the in-game news feed, you may not have noticed that we’ve been releasing new episodes on a weekly basis. So far we’ve released twelve new missions since the game has launched. You can get access to all of these (plus the dozens we have left to go in Season 2) by grabbing the Season Pass in the store section of the Zombies, Run! app.

We’ll continue to update the apps and ZombieLink and, as soon as news on these updates and features is available, we’ll be sharing it with you here at the Zombies, Run! blog.
