We can be heroes, walk every day.
A walking app made into a Game
WalkHero is an app for those walking enthusiasts out there.
If you want to have a motivation to go out every day and take a short walk, specially during current times with lock downs and social contact limited, WalkHero is for your.
With WalkHero you can keep track of your walking streak, you can visualise in a map what areas of your surroundings you have already walked and how much of your city you have still to walk around; don't limit yourself, you have the whole world to discover.
WalkHero also helps you to keep track of your walking distance and the amount of steps per walks, so you can challenge yourself and improve over time.
You can also challenge your friends on Game Center.
You can also become a hero by walking every day.
It is possible to lead a healthier life without having to worry too much about it.
1. WalkHero makes use of Apple Health App to access your step count and distance walked, and while you can install WalkHero on your iPad, you won't be able to track your steps and distance as iPad doesn't have Apple Health App, but you will still be able to access the map and the streak calendar. More over, if you use WalkHero on an iPhone or an Apple Watch, it will be possible to visualise your step count and distance walked on iPad as they will be synchronised.
2. In order to provide an accurate map you can optionally allow WalkHero to access your locations always, even when the app is not active. WalkHero won't try to access your location unless there is an active Walk in progress. However this might require a big amount of battery from your device and decrease your battery life. You can change how often WalkHero should access your location directly on the Settings App.
3. WalkHero only keep track of the walks you actively initiate within the WalkHero app. Any activity or workout initiated outside of WalkHero app is not considered or kept track of.
