Keep fit and get outside more with Meandr!

"The best iPhone apps of 2022, 2023" - TechRadar
"Make perfect walking and running routes" - Tapsmart.com
"Whether you're a seasoned walker or just starting out, why not take MeandR for a spin?" - iMore.com

Whether you want to get fit or just need some motivation to get outdoors, Meandr can help. There is no pressure, just choose a distance and pace that suits you. Go as fast or as slow as you want, or just enjoy the walk!

You don’t even have to decide where to walk, as MeandR will automatically generate a random route at the distance you choose. Be adventurous and discover new routes around you!

Each attempt is recorded, including the distance, how long it took and how many steps. Look back at your stats and track your progress over time.

AUTOMATIC CHALLENGES
Choose how far and how fast and let Meandr generate a route at that distance. You can choose a circular route or you can choose a straight out route to a target.

CUSTOMISE THE ROUTE
For circular routes you can drag the waypoints around to create your own route. For straight out routes, you can choose where to put the target.

Drag the start point to wherever you want and MeandR will generate a circular route from there.

TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
Each challenge is recorded. Look back through the history to see how you did, or look at the activity summary stats to see totals of distance and steps over the last 7 and 30 days, or all time. Each route you take is recorded so you can look back at it on a map.

* No pressure - choose a distance and pace that suits you
* Simple, fun interface designed to get you going in three taps
* Tracks the distance, time and number of steps for each challenge
* If you didn't finish a challenge, just find it in the history and replay it
* Unit of measurement can be set to kilometres or miles
* Map easily toggled between standard or satellite view
* Keep an eye on the gauges that show the timer and distance to the target
* As you walk, the route is plotted on the map in realtime
* As you get to each waypoint, you’ll get a notification and see it ticked off on the map
* Save your favourite routes with a name to recall later
* If you can't make it to a waypoint for any reason, but you're within 100 metres, just tap it on the map and head to the next one
* Generate a GPX file of your route that you can save or share

What’s New

Version 2.0.7

* Minor bug fixes behind the scenes.

Great way of finding new routes to walk/run

After a year of lockdowns and "exercise once a day", it can get really tedious going out for the same walk or run every day.

This app is great because it chooses a route you might never have thought of, and because you tell it how fast you walk and how far you want to go, you get a circular walking route that you can easily customise.

I use it for walking my dog! Dogs get bored with the same walks all the time. This app is brilliant for giving my dog a surprise - it's a proper exploration app for her, because she never knows which park we will go to or which backstreets we will go through.

I've got one feature request: being able to save the plotted routes and name them.

At the moment, if you get a nice route and think "that one would be great for the weekend", the only way to save the route is to tap "start", wait for it to start, then tap "stop", effectively "failing" the challenge. This saves it into your history so you can try it again.

I think the app would really benefit from a history/saved page; perhaps the app could ask if you want to save the route before exiting the map, and it could allow you to name it ("lots of parks", "no main roads" etc), while also updating the saved route with challenge/history results.

That would make this great app into a 5-star brilliant app.

Hi "Evilplan", I've just released an update which, amongst other things, now includes the ability to save the routes, without having to start the challenge, and give them a name. Hope you like it!

Nice idea

Doesnt always want to calculate a route but you can try again. Would be nice to choose the type of road to use, the complexity of the route and for it to use known pathways.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, Bigcheese2001. I'm working on improving the app so that it gets a route each time, so watch this space. Thanks for the other suggestions - I will consider them for a future update. Any other suggestions or problems let me know at support@goodbinary.com.

Quite good but could do with improvement

Just downloaded this and it appears to be ok - I haven’t used it to walk the route yet so cannot comment on the actual route that’s been created. I may be missing something but I would like the option to start at a specific point rather than my current location. I would also like the ability to choose from a selection of routes rather than just the one and the ability to sink routes with my iPad would be really useful to plan the route on a bigger screen and sync to my phone for the actual walk.

Developer Response ,

Hi Foofighterfan66,
Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. I've recently updated the app so that you can move the start of the route to anywhere you want (just tap on the flag and drag it). Your suggestions of being able to sync with your other devices are great and I will certainly consider including them in future updates. Any problems or more suggestions in the meantime, let me know at support@goodbinary.com
