About this app

Created with the NHS and the UK's Department of Health, The Walk helps you walk more, every single day. When you’re playing The Walk, every step counts.

A bomb explodes in Inverness station, and you’re given a package that could save the world. To stay alive, you’ll need to walk the length of the UK. The Walk is more than just a great pedometer/step counter — it's a way to turn walking into a journey, a challenge, and a rip-roaring adventure.

Made by Six to Start and Naomi Alderman, creators of the world’s most popular running game with over 5 million players, Zombies, Run!

ENGADGET - “Simple, fun, effective.”
JOYSTIQ - "Spices up your step-tracking with some danger and intrigue.”
BBC NEWS - “Encourages users to walk 10,000 steps-a-day to help improve their health”
LIFEHACKER - “You're motivated to actually get up and move around so you can progress further into the story, and it works really well.”

Just put your phone in your pocket or purse and we’ll track every walk and run you take — and map it, too!

You’ll walk the length of the UK while evading capture by the police and enemy agents. Can you work out who set off that bomb in the first place and what their plan is? Get ready for an epic adventure across 65 episodes, 800 minutes of audio, and hundreds of miles.

Get rewarded for walking more by collecting clues, scanning for information, and unlocking achievements.

The Walk adjusts its difficulty based on individual fitness levels. Everyone’s different, and we make sure we give you the right level of challenge!

I really enjoy the episodes and the story and have no problems with getting the regular episodes to work exactly how I want them to. My main disappointment is with the challenges, which require me to have the app open and pulled up at all times in order to collect items on them--it makes it impossible to play simultaneously with another program (like PokemonGo or Zombies Run), or to play when walking with my husband. I'd much prefer to be able to turn on the challenge and set my route, and then have it collect the items in the background so I could do other things.

Absolutely loved this walking app. The story and the voice acting are great. Would love to give this 5 stars, but there needs to be a way to skip to a later spot in the audio. Especially later in the episodes, there are starts for audio recordings too close to the previous recording. The previous recording doesn't finish before the next one starts. You can replay the previous recording, but you have to listen from the very beginning. There needs to be a way to skip forward in the recording

The story is good. I paid for the subscription. My main complaint is that i can't adjust the time of each chapter to the length of my walk. The chapters are consistently over an hour. It would be nicer if I could set my walk time to what I want, and then the story clip play times could adjust. I never know how long the chapter will be, the times are inconsistent. Why? This seems like a simple programmimg fix. If it changes so I can set my walk time, I'll rate it 5 stars.
