So far impressed! Other virtual running apps are not true apps...this tracks the virtual route via a map and displays fun info about thr journey! I love the heads-up notifications that tell me I've reached a checkpoint on the virtual map. This is great!!
Doesnt work with samsung galaxy tab 2 Installed this to use on my samsumg galaxy tab 2. It requires me to log in and connects me to facebook, then reports that I have no internet (except, I installed it and connected to facebook, so obviously I have internet). Tried to add friends, it cycles for a few seconds then crashes. Thought this could have been a good app, but not if it won't let me use it.
I don't get it This isn't a virtual walk, it's just a map with a highlighted line. Even the street view isn't like we are walking a trail. Let me know if I'm missing something because the reviews are all pretty good, I just don't get it.
The negative reviews on this app are from people who do not read or observe anything before downloading. The app does exactly what it claims to. However I think it needs more walk options.
WASTE OF TIME!!! This IS NOT a "Virtual Walk Treadmill"!!! YOU are supposed to ACTUALLY walk in the exact spots with this app running on your phone or tablet... For example, you actually have to go to Central Park in NYC and run their app while walking their designed course. IT HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TREADMILL!!! IT'S NOT VIRTUAL SCENERY!!! I hate when app creators create the title of their app around something popular that people want and would download BUT, their app has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with that popular concept that people ACTUALLY WANT... They do this just so people will download... SUCH CRAP AND GARBAGE!!! I WILL BOYCOTT any other product or app that Virtual Walk LLC has!!! THIS COMPANY IS A BUNCH OF SNEAKY SOBS!!!! I AM VERY ANGRY for doing this to people and trying to trick them into downloading their CRAPPY, GOOD FOR NOTHING, WASTE OF TIME APP!!! I'd include a few "choice" words here, but I can't unfortunately.
Well I was so excited for this but it only shows a map. Tried the GPS option and says there is no connection. Same as review below...I was definitely connected to Internet. Fix and maybe I would pay for maps.
