Still has some bugs I love this app because I can walk to help one of my clients who has a big dog rescue. But as iv been using it more iv noticed it has been stopping my walks after only a minute or 2 saying I wasn't moving. Today I tried it worked fine for a while but then at some point it decided I wasnt walking any more (even though I was) so it stopped tracking so I had to restart my walk.
How Much? I love this idea! I am from a rural area and checked my areas impact in the app and it shows that 25 people have walked 1,200 miles for our shelter. I was wondering how much gets donated and how it is sent to them? Is it an anonymous donation? Or do you mail in a check on behalf of the app? I would like to ask at the shelter next time I stop in.
Great for fitness tracking 7/29/16 Update: I have been using this app for several months and have loved it. Recently I have noticed that it either stops my walks after only a couple minutes or it only measures part of my walk. I have to hold it in my hand the entire walk to have it measure close to accurate. It never did this before, I always had my phone in my pocket/pack 1/2016 Initial: Use this app every time I walk my dog, I love it. It shows the path you take, the length and the average speed you walked.
Great idea, buggy app I love what happens through this application! However, each new version seems to introduce a new, highly visible bug. For example, the current version often fails to close, leaving a non interactive alert on the lock screen, and in the running apps area of the top nav. It also can fail to find a GPS signal when when other apps do not. This is the buggiest app that I still use.
I don't have any problems using this app. The only hangup is you NEED to turn your GPS tracker on before you open the app, or (at least for me) it will not find your location. I turn it on when I'm getting my dogs' leashes then open the app after I have them ready to go. Route seems pretty accurate (I wander in the wilderness so hard to say precisely), app is easy to use, the ads aren't obnoxious, and overall I like the concept. Been using it for a while now (a month? 2?) on my Galaxy phone with no issues.
I really like Walk for a Dog and what it is doing to help the rescued dogs of the world. I like tracking the miles walked with my little rescue and how I can see where we've been and how far we've walked. Makes me feel like I'm contributing since I can't rescue them all. The app can be a bit quirky but I can live with that since the development team is trying to do some good in this world. Not perfect but what do you expect for free.
Improved performance. Loads faster. Fixes issue on some Samsung devices where the app may not fully close after a walk is completed. Other bug fixes and enhancements.
