Walk Log makes it very easy to track your walking sessions, keeping a log of the distance and time taken for each walk. Be sure you get in your walking exercise each week!
● View a calendar showing which days you walked recently.
● View statistics and charts of weekly, monthly, and yearly progress.
● Share on dailymile.com.
● Use the built-in map to plan out a route, or if using an iPhone, simply track your course with GPS.*
● Categorize log entries with user-defined tags.
● Sync using iCloud (enable via Settings app).
Walk Log makes it easy to record the results of a walking session in a matter of seconds. You can also use Walk Log to review your walk history, and plan new routes for future walking sessions.
You can simply use GPS if using an iPhone or, when you return from a walk, use Walk Log to record your session: The date and route are automatically filled in based on defaults. The time spent on your last walk for the route is also presented as the default. Simply adjust the minutes or seconds and you are done! Your pace will be shown to you.
To plan a new route to try in your neighborhood, go to the routes tab and bring up the map, which centers on your current location. Simply tap points on the map in order to create your route. When done, the route distance is automatically computed. If you walk this route frequently, you can set it as the default.
You can view a calendar showing which days you walked recently. This makes it easy to decide if you are due for a walk today. You can also view statistics and charts showing weekly, monthly, and yearly summaries of your distance, time and pace. You can focus on walks of a particular type by filtering by tags.

Ratings and Reviews
A few weeks ago I would have given this app a 5 Star rating; not now. In recent days every time I use this app it crashes. It starts up and begins to map my walk and record time just as it should. But, at the end of my walk, when I want to check my progress, the app crashes and all my new data vanishes. What happened?
PS: There does not seem to be a way to contact customer support.
PPS: A follow-up. The problem described above appears to have been resolved. After a lapse of a few weeks I tried Walk Log again; everything seems to be working well.
And, I discovered how to contact tech support. Another small issue arose. I was able to e-mail the developer and had a response in less than 15 minutes. Back to five stars!
The app is the best of the six I looked at to record my exercise walks.
Pros: Records reliably, calculates and displays cumulative time and distance totals, easy iCloud sync between devices, no subscriptions or in-app purchases.
Cons: Continuously pesters you to allow full time location tracking instead of just while using the app, start-tracking button is buried unintuitively and two menus deep, statistics don’t seem to sync to other devices.
Overall, a competent, if idiosyncratic, job by the developer. Fix the items listed and it would be a 5.
Good & easy to use
Especially like the GPS feature to track or plan multiple routes. Would appreciate a place to log calories expended when have walked on a treadmill.
