This is a terrific app. It keeps track of your miles/kilometres, inspires you reach your set goal (whatever you determine it to be) and helps to raise money for animal shelters and/or raise awareness of the plight of homeless pets. There are no ads and unlike every other app, you are never bombarded with fake information (Your phone is full, download this now - you know the ones.) This is an ethical app! Enjoy! And yes sponsors are needed... Its U.S based, Im in Australia so its for every animal lover
I am very disappointed that this app is so inaccurate. Today my Garmin Vivoactive HR accurately said I walked 1.17 miles and this app said I walked .36 miles. That's a huge difference and cheats the rescue I am trying to help. With every walk it had been inaccurate.
I like this app in general, and the concept is great! Unfortunately the accuracy of the GPS tracking has gotten worse. Since the last two updates it constantly cuts corners off my route; I now rarely get credit for the entire walk. That's cheating my charity, and I don't like it!
The concept is great, but it rarely works. Nine times out of ten I have returned and my walk wasn't tracked. What's the point?!?!
Best Friends is wonderful! They do such great work! An app that benefits my favorite cause, AND...tracks distance accurately (finally)! Win, win!
Easy to use and free. Tracks distance travelled even inside shopping malls.
