EDIT: Since writing the below review in 2015 this app has been updated and as of 10/7/17 has basically fixed all the problems I had with it. This is great because now I can continue with the excellent story, which along with the world building has always been super strong! Review below kept for posterity ------------- This is the second, at least, time I've missed the wonderful story of The Walk (because the story is great) and reinstalled it, and then over the course of using it got more and more frustrated with its effects on my phone, namley IT IS A 1.2 GB APP THAT WILL NOT GO ON YOUR SD CARD. I have 15 updates I can't get because of this app. I constantly have to be aware of whether there are any files I can move to my SD card. Long YouTube videos involve me clearing me cache before watching them so they can buffer.
Issues with step counting fixed. Fun story to make walks interesting.
Its an alright buy So the game is fun and exciting. Im definitely walking more then before because i find the story interesting, compelling and want to continue it. I find tracking fairly good(personally never had more then a few mintues discrepancy). My main issues are chapter 30 is a flop (entering makes game crash ALWAYS) if you can even get it started to continue, chapters 41 and 42 are ideal (map and audio).
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.
Won't record steps any more. Not sure what's happening but the app no longer consistently records steps and locks up or stops counting. The only solution is to restart missions or reinstall, both of which reset progress. I previously lost all progress when moving app from main memory to SD card, which was on me, but now I can't play it any more sadly. Uninstalling until it's hopefully fixed.
I enjoy the game, but can't give such a buggy product a good review. It doesn't seem as if there is any real motivation to fix issues that have been known about for more than a year. The story is compelling, when I can get it to work.
