Supposedly let’s you create custom workouts in Zwift easier / faster. You can also create custom run workouts, which I guess Zwift doesn’t let you do now. May try this tomorrow for grins and giggles…
According to the comments, it’s desktop centric, so once again it;s a hard pass from me.
On a mobile phone I’ve only tried Garmin Connect app and it works well. Really easy to create or modify a structured workout.
It’s the output file that’s a problem as far as I understand. iOS has been designed with hiding the file system as a requirement - makes life a bit complicated.
Nice! looking forward to giving this a go. Fingers crossed it all works.
I like the visual elements of Zwift but the structure and ease of following a plan on TR. Don’t think I can bothered to make a new workout every time but might be better for some of those longer intervals that don’t change or some of the aerobic sessions.
Anything to get through those intervals is a winner in my eyes!
iOS has an accessible file system now, for several years. The Files app gives access, and apps can expose as well.
Yes - an interesting set of patches.
Only complicated if you design solutions that produce/use output files, a bit 20th century IMO.
Looks very similar to zwofactory to me.
Zwift management of files is really poor. Even the desktop version, you have to drop the .zwo file into a very specific directory, and you can’t really manage it inside the app. One of the things I hated most and why I prefer to create workouts in Today’s Plan or TrainingPeaks. The downside, if you need to do a free-ride section, you have to use .zwo files.
Yeah, and it’s not just iOS. Android would have the same problems because the app wants files in a specific place.
But, it is much easier to deal with on a desktop than a mobile device. The silly thing is that you can upload to their “servers” by putting the file in the appropriate location on a pc/Mac, launching Zwift, let it load, then shut it down and go to your mobile.
So much of Zwift development irritates me. I should make this my new signature.

never used it…dunno. Just reporting on it since I thought some here might find it useful.
I’d never used that before. Just tried it… really like it
Think I still prefer the Intervals.icu workout builder for speed/simplicity, but this is a close second.
Have never tried this one - will have to give it a go. For me the TR Workout Creator is so much better than the Zwift one, I stopped looking elsewhere.
I had forgotten about that one. I recall the discussion we had with mr. tinker on this forum, about it.
