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.
I love the concept... Is there a way to see exactly what is being made as far as the donations to the shelter you choose... ??? I'm not seeing a lot of options in the app to do much of anything. Nothing to contact the developers, nothing to track the amount being donated to the shelter, nothing to personalize your version of the app... Seems like these wouldn't be difficult additions to make and would greatly improve the app, especially to the user.
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.
Works fine and if it helps why not I love dogs and even though I can't keep adopting I can help walk for a shelter while walking my dog. I haven't had any issues on my Nexus 6. It'd be nice to see more features like others have suggested such as the amount one donates. Great app and idea regardless.
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.
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.
