Please note... you MUST have a device which supports step counting. Currently this means you must have an iPhone 5S or newer.
Get Moving is the fitness app for the rest of us. It's not about getting fit and timing how fast you are. It's simply about getting off your chair and walking around.
Medical evidence seems to imply that sitting still for hours at a time is really bad for your health. Get Moving will let you know if you've been sitting still for more than an hour.
If you get up and walk around for a few minutes it will start counting again. And you should feel much better about yourself.
Of course you can turn it off at night so it won't keep you awake. But during the day we really recommend responding every time it reminds you to move around.
You can also see a chart of your activity for the last hour or for the last day.
Get the app. Get moving.
We updated notifications for iOS 11.
Because we can't be sure how often the OS will give us time in the background, (sometimes it's more than an hour before we get a turn), we made a big change to how the app works...
We used to schedule the warning and then cancel it if we got some background time and detected that you have been active. But sometimes that meant you still got the warning even though you had been active, (because we never got any background time at all).
So now we only check when (if) we get background time. So there shouldn't be any more cases where we warn you even though you have been active.
But now we won't remind you exactly on 60 minutes, we will remind you the first time we get a chance to run in the background and we find that you haven't been moving around. We hope that works for you. We've been using it like this and it's working for us.
We also did some updates for iOS11, and we now use way less power in the background. So you should be able to leave Get Moving running all the time without significant impact on your battery life.
Ratings and Reviews
Does not work on iOS 10 & 11
It shows activity totals and resets the timer when you move, but never alerts you when the timer runs out. The app doesn't show up at all in Settings->Notifications.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
