Gives me all the data my Fitbit did except heart rate. Fitbit going haywire, so I needed something to replace it. Found Simply Walking to be extremely accurate (miles, steps, time, etc.). The only issue I had was calibrating steps. I tried the 100 step method but it always quit and reverted to the start screen after about 10 steps. Fortunately I have loads of data from my Fitbit days which enabled me to accurately calculate my steps per mile. I double checked this figure using Simply Walking data from several walks using GPS and it was right on. The only complaint I have is the lack of a web page to store and easily analyze all my data (e.g. Fitbit account page). Otherwise a great app that's accurate and easy to use.
Generally a good app. But I was having a lot of trouble with Calibration. Calibrating the steps for a mile using the 100 step method. 4 attempts gave me different readings from 1970 to 2800 ? Tried carrying 2 phones and had figures up to 600 steps different on the first attempt. 1800+ to 2400+. Received an email from Michael Stam, who said a future update could improve the calibration process. Also, to find out how many steps I walk over a mile and put in manually. For quickness, I counted my steps over a kilometer and multiplied by 1.609. Maybe slightly more accurate than 100 yds/mtrs and multiplying? Apart from that a simple to use app. Clever people app writers ?
Generally good and does what I want which is just record my route on a map. However taking photos while tracking my route seems to throw it off and the resulting route is garbage with grossly inaccurate mapping or time recording. This only seems to be an issue if I have location tagging turned on for the camera which is a shame as I like to know where I was when I took a photo, especially if I took it whilst out walking!
Awesome I love this app. I was about to spend a wad of cash on a GPS distance tracker when I came across this little gem. I have clocked the distance tracking with my cars odometer and it is accurate to within about 15 feet. All I need is to know how far I've walked, but can't wait to explore all it's features. We'll done. And to the few who have said that it loses connection to satellites or that it is not accurate, the problem is with your phone, not the app.
Did not transfer well to updated phone. I had this on my HTC One and loved it! I have just recently updated to a HTC Ten. Now, when I try to use it, then try to minimize it to use other things on my phone(i.e. camera, music, etc.) this app stops. If it didn't do that, I would love to give five stars. 🙁
App is fine if you in the wide open. But get under a slight tree canopy, and it is very bad. Suppose to be a setting to ignore points that are not possible to walk, but it does it anyway. A short 1/2 mile walk in the woods turned into 6 miles with random points several miles away. Did this several times, not just a couple. Deleting the app.
