Updated version so pleased I didn't delete Tried the walk a few times but found it was not tracking my walk steps of time. Despite walking twice a day for at the very least an hour the app tracked just 10 to 20 mins per day.. I was just about to give up and delete after it tracked just 700 steps of a 5. Mile. Walk . Then saw the update. Installed it along with Google fit and it's now tracking every step every minute and every mile. Really thrilled as it adds so much interest to my walk. unlike before I have managed to complete 2 episodes today.
Awesome since update Much better since updating. The bug where time wasn't counted accurately is fixed so loving this. Gamifies exercise for walkers until you are ready to start running, lots of voice acting to make the story interactive, you can change the story with your actions. It can also track activity between workouts if you choose so.
Update: Sorry, tracking still broken. Re-installed and got to episode 4 before it died this time. Google fit tracking works but the walk shows 0 mins. Still has no option to save progress so can't recommend this to anyone. It's a shame to see all that great content go to waste. Could the audio files be made available to download or play via Zombies Run! for those that have paid for The Walk. This one's a dud but Zombies, Run! by the same team is great.
I really enjoy the app. It does motivate to keep going. I do wish is would link to my Fitbit as I walk as opposed the the phone. With the phone I don't think I always get an accurate step count.
New update is the best You can now use Google fit to track steps and it is much better (incredibly accurate when compared with my wearable tracker) I would recommend, the story is interesting and makes you want to find out what happens, get your walking shoes at the ready!
Good motivation for going out for walk Since the update it works great, a great way to motivate yourself to go out for walk with manageable targets
- Added support for Google Fit step tracking, enabled by default. This should in general be more reliable and accurate than the old system, but you can turn it off in the settings.
- Challenge missions are now optional! The subsequent story mission will be unlocked when a challenge mission is unlocked.
- App can now be installed to the SD card
- Fixed issue causing the app to steadily get larger over time.
