Tweaks needed

Really good idea for app, However it will not sync to Fitbit so having to remember to manually add steps is a pain, also a bit complicated to get started, the ones o. The Fitbit are more straightforward and user friendly,

Makes Walking More Interesting

So nice to find a walking app that’s actually free to use! So many say free, but then you discover that you need to subscribe to use them, so this app is wonderful. I’ve done a few small walks, around famous cities, and it’s lovely reaching the landmarks and being able to read all about them. I’m just about to start my first “big” walk, taking in the wonders of ancient Egypt. I definitely think this encourages me to walk more, I’m mobility impaired so I need all the encouragement I can get! Thank you to the developers for this fab app, and for keeping it free to use!

Love it

Simple app that does what I need it to. You walk a bit then add your banked steps to whichever ‘walk’ you choose.

I started with a Dorset coast walk which I completed quite quickly and now I’m doing John O’Groats to Lands End which is quite a bit longer. Seeing my progress on the map is motivating me to walk a bit more each day.
