Interesting set up to sy the least! Even though I picked a walk. (Scotish one) adding miles doesnt hit walk till you spend the miles. It too frustrating to try to figure out how to use the app. You cant joing any clubs as you have to be invited. Yet most clubs have less than 5 people. The one thing i did like was the possibility of seeing other countries as you complete the miles! Will be deleting.

I really like this app and have been using it a lot recently to turn unexciting lockdown walks around my local neighbourhood into more interesting virtual walks around the world. The feature to see where you currently are on your virtual walk using Google Street view was really the main feature for me. However, that feature stopped working maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. I'll stick with this app for a while to see if this is fixed, but I'm really disappointed this feature no longer works.

Loving the app, easy to use with lots of available content, my only gripe is that the walks can be structured a little strangely at points. According to the West Highland Walk I have done almost 5000 steps on a stretch of road maybe 200 steps long, and am still not quite onto the next stretch. This is the first time I've encountered the problem but it's early days, so no telling whether this is common or just a one-off. Either way, just mildly annoying, nowhere near a deal-breaker.
