Seeing the new features rolled out is great, but there's still work to be done matching functionality between app and website.  Ideally, if it's important enough to exist in one, it should also be in the other.  Examples:

1. Adding Gear: Given that STRAVA now has so many activity categories, it would be nice to add gear other than shoes and bikes; I log roughly 20 miles per week on a Concept2 rower, and would like to aggregate that data in the app/website.

2. Segment creation/searching/exploring:  Searching is clunky on the app, but very intuitive on the website, and creation of segments is only available through the website.

3. Course Creation/searching/exploring: Similar to Segments, creation is somewhat cumbersome on the app to the point where folks just don't use it; I make it a point to only create routes on the website for the sake of my own sanity.  In dire straits, I actually prefer the CityStrides route builder over that of either STRAVA or Garmin Connect apps.

4. FlyBy:  This was once an awesome function, albeit only really viewable from the website, and since STRAVA changed their privacy policies making the user default as 'opted out', it's essentially unused.  Also, FlyBy isn't widely advertised as a feature, and not obvious to app users that it even exists.

5. Muting Activities:  An activity can only be muted through the app, and not the website.
DELIVERED: Enable Muted activities on web

6. Managing Goals:  Currently only Running, Cycling, and Swimming distance goals can be viewed/managed through the website, but other activities like Rowing can be viewed/managed through the app.

7. Choosing Favorite Athletes/Activity Alerts:  Designation of specific friends/athletes as "favorites" and opting into notifications of their activities is only available through the app.

8. Although not available on either the website or the app, the ability to simply edit your comment on someone's activity would be very helpful, and seems like pretty low-hanging fruit.

Hello @audramulholland 

Thanks for your post.  @Jana_S is correct, this is available on the web site currently:

We will place a thumbnail of the photo in the location at which it was taken if that information is available in the photo's metadata. Usually you have to allow your photos to have access to your phone's location services for this to happen.

Is it possible to have in the app the activity search as in the web?

At the moment in the app we can only search for Athletes (friends) or Clubs, while in the web for Athletes, Activities, Clubs and Segments.

Given we can’t yet set default gear for commutes (separate feature idea already), I’d like to filter rides by gear in the mobile app that already has a lot of different filters:

This way I can easily see which rides I recently did and check that the gear is correct - mainly, for me, to easily track mileage on that gear.

The website allows you to do this but that page is not mobile friendly. I don’t want to have to jump on a larger device just to do what could probably be done in the app easily: your Types filter already limits to ride types I’ve done so you’re clearly already aggregating data for my profile here.
