    1. View bar and pie charts that compile your workouts and use the calendar feature to track activities and routes
    2. See your own progress and even compete against yourself with your old statistics appearing on the map and a graph
    3. Choose what information you want to appear more often: like calories burned or distance traveled

  • Decent except for heavy map averaging Sep 28, 2019

    By Hosea_12:6
    I first tried another app, but it insisted that you start the “free” 7 day trial of the paid version first. At least this app does not do that. The free version offers quite a bit including speed, map, keeping historical data, weekly monthly, etc running sums. My one beef with this app is that it does an overly heavy averaging of the gps location. As I am walking, the dot on the map keeps spot on. There is a blue trail that jumps up to the dot every 4-6 seconds, so that is the frequency of the position stored. When I go around a corner or turn around and head back, the blue line starts shifting for the next 4 or 5 “updates”. So it is averaging the points and overwriting data. The path ends up cutting through yards and even houses. There are a couple of settings affecting smoothing of the path, but no way to turn off the averaging. Since my current spot on the map is exactly right, I really don’t understand why the app needs to do any averaging. (I’m glad my car’s guidance app doesn’t or I would be driving across a lot of parking lots.) I would much appreciate a choice to turn off the averaging and a choice of a higher position data record rate (1-2 seconds)

    I have been using this app to document my daily walks for a couple of years. I have NEVER had a perfect Activity month due to either an app crash or the Activity app doesn’t update when I hit the end button. I have already contacted the app people who, of course, blamed the Activity app that came with the iPhone. That still doesn’t explain the crashes. It seems just stopping to take a picture is enough to do it. It’s frustrating knowing you did the walk, but not getting credit for it. Therefore, I am switching to another means of recording my walks until these issues are resolved. Review update: after corresponding with Ronni from support we figured out the issue. I was trying to do too many things at one time so now I only have the app open that I am currently using. Presto, no more issues. The app has been working flawlessly since.

    Walkmeter is by far the app if it’s kind that I’ve come across. I’ve tried several others but either the GPS is wonkie or the app was unreliable or the data/tracking stats just never seemed right. Walkmeter gets all these things accurately and has even more features. I love the announcements as they keep me motivated during my hikes. And being able to edit a route name and have the cumulative data for the route automatically update is fantastic. And I can’t say enough about the support. The included help guide us great, the help in the website is even better, but when I still have a question I get responses in less than two days. Other app developers should take notes on how to provide good support. I can’t say enough about this app. The free version is great but the paid version is even better and well worth the latte you give up to buy it.

    I give it 5 stars, because it's free with minimal ads and it's really cool using GPS. It was right on matching my location on it's map. I have used this app a lot and can't say enough good things. It makes my hikes a lot more fun and motivating. It keeps a history of everything. You can go to history and compare your hikes or walk or rides. And call up your route super imposed over satellite and terrain maps, etc. So cool. I don't even notice ads. But I will buy this app to unlock features.

    I paid for the Elite level of this app for one main reason - to be able to start and stop the timer from my Apple Watch. And of course to be able to glance at the elapsed time while walking. Starting and stopping the app from my watch works about 75% of the time, but there are too many times I have to pull my phone out. I make sure to open the app on my phone before I leave the house, but sometimes it still tells me to open it. Also, sometimes the info doesn’t transfer correctly to the Health and Activity apps. Otherwise, the app has way more info than I probably need, but I like seeing the distance, time, and map of each walk.

    Good app. Only had one minor problem when I first got it, but that was quickly sorted after contacting the developers. It sometimes goes primate excrement when in shopping centres; probably due to the environment, if I forget to pause it. But it was bought primarily for our bimbles in the countryside and I can't fault it for that, it works just great.

  • Suddenly inaccurate? Jul 11, 2021

    By EST NYC
    I have used this app for years, and happily paid for Elite. It’s been great. Today I went for a walk on a trail I’ve taken many times before. I was impressed at how much faster my speeds had gotten. But strange things were happening. I’d lock my phone, unlock it to check my progress, and suddenly it was telling me my mile pace was way way faster than it should have been. Leaving my phone unlocked, while not practical, helped a bit. When I finished my round trip on the trail, my numbers and splits were all better than I’d had before. Checked the map, and, for some reason Walkmeter is thinking a round trip on this hiking trail, a mile out and a mile back, is actually more like 2.3 miles. Only a few weeks ago Walkmeter was properly seeing this as a 2 mile walk. So my distance is way off, screwing up everything else. What is going on?
  • Not accurate Aug 8, 2018

    By kieranicole3
    So, I don’t usually do reviews but since I’ve had such a difficult time with knowing the distance that I walk, I thought I’d share my experience with whoever is reading this. So, I started power walking the same paths daily. I noticed about a month ago that the faster I would walk the same exact path, it would record less the amount of distance. I was noticing walking about 2 miles that I would get 1.6, 1.85, 2.2 and so on. I kinda didn’t think to much in to it. However on Monday (today is Wednesday) I forgot to turn my walking app until approx .5 mile in and my total distance was 3.08 The following day (Tuesday) I turned it on right as I hopped out of my car. My total distance that day was 2.88 miles, a lot less then mondays distance. So, I downloaded run keeper and today it came out to 3.4miles and proves that this app is not accurate for some reason. Maybe they need to update it because it should go by gps. Other then that I think the set up of the app is wonderful. It’s easy to use and haven’t had any issues having it run in the background as I play music, get on the internet, or text. Good app, just not accurate and I will be using run keeper from now on.
  • Paths are noisy and therefore too long Aug 15, 2018

    By GrantW3
    The idea behind this app is great, and I like the interface as well. Unfortunately the paths it records are often *very* inaccurate and zig-zaggy and so wind up being too long, sometimes by 50% or more. This makes the app pretty much useless for me, despite my wanting to like it. Today, for example, I recorded over 3 miles for what I know to be a two-mile walk. Looking at the map, I could see why: where I had actually walked a straight-line path, the map showed numerous spurious loops and switchbacks. My supposed pace during this segment was 6 minutes/mile. This may be due to inherent noisiness in the location information provided by the iPhone. If so, the solution would be to use much longer time intervals (e.g., 1-2 minutes) between samples. This would ensure that the actual distance walked between samples is relatively large compared to the inevitable slop in the location info.

    By Chris Chislehurst
    It cannot cope with a walk that includes train rides, even if it is paused while one is on the train. Even on a simple walk the map just shows a straight line from start point to end point, not the actual route. The presentation of results is unclear and amateurish. Replaced with a better app.

    I only use it for walks and it works fine for these. There is a problem with battery use as it continues to have GPS on after exit. There is an option to quit which works but I can only find it in advanced settings. I have resorted to force close to stop the battery drain. There should be an obvious quit button on the main page.

    I hate to give just 1 star, esp since it appears to have plenty of nice features/functions, but it just doesn't track correctly & the miles counted & pacing is way off. I've given it numerous tries with all recommended settings & system adjustments. A known 3 mile walk shows only 2 miles in the app and the map shows that I walk over lakes and through buildings. My I'net is strong and other apps track my routes successfully. Useless for me.

    By Jeri B
    Works somewhat. Yesterday I told walkmeter to stop. And it did (I thought) but today it added today's walk to the end of yesterday's?? I think it wanted me to press stop and done?? And when I wanted to look at the map of today's walk it said I didn't have google maps installed. That is correct but what does that have to do with the price of tea? I choose to use a different map app and if walkmeter requires me to install google maps that likely means I will UNinstall walkmeter.

    I have tried to use this app 3 times. It crashed and failed on the second two attempts. This combined with the fact that it must be one of the most Ad laden apps in the store explains why the developers demand such a high price to purchase it. They do not expect to sell many copies. Not for me thank you

    App seems decent but I'm trying to upgrade to premium using my Google Play balance and it says I have an insufficient balance. Not true as I redeemed a card and my Play account clearly shows the balance. It's a pita but I'll have to do the trial, cancel, then see it if will take my Play balance in 6 days. Why won't the app see my correct balance?

    ****** UPDATE - switched from four stars to five stars because of the excellent customer service which not only responded to my question, but also made a suggestion which fixed my problem. This has to be the best customer service I’ve ever experienced. Thank you so much. ***** I’ve been a faithful user of this app for years so I decided to pay to upgrade. The pedometer (the main reason I wanted to upgrade) has never worked. Seeing the great developer response on here along with a support website, I wrote to that hoping for help. No response. Maybe I’ll receive one on here. I’d really like to be able to use it.
  • The core of my workouts Feb 6, 2018

    By NoCanSurf
    In December 2017, I received a heart rate monitor as a gift, and decided to upgrade the app to the full paid mode, to take full advantage of the app. I happy I did. Integration of the heart rate monitor was the key feature I wanted, the announcement system was the biggest and best surprise. The app does everything I could want, it tracks my hikes, records the miles, the climbs, my heart rate and feeds all the data back to me, it graphs, maps and charts. I’ve tried a number of apps to follow my progress, from free to the fancy paid apps. None really work as well or provided the data I wanted. The best feature I didn’t know I wanted is the voiced announcements, my phone tell me my heart rate every ten minutes and related information and every 1/2 tells my my distance and a few other keep pieces of data. This little feature is cool. While hiking I have the announcement come from the phone’s speaker, I keep in my camelpak (I don’t listen to music on the trails), while jogging it comes in over my Bluetooth headphones.
  • Don't be misled by the app title Aug 13, 2017

    By ssteiner
    It's name suggests it's just for "walking". But I do ultra-marathons and average 200 miles a month. This app, despite its name, offers awesome detail for the hardcore runner. I've had this app for over three years and swear by it. It's phone based and thus not dependent on a limited battery GPS watch. It provides extremely accurate distance measurement and records data at several levels - from cadence to pace to speed in mph to elevation gain and more. The distance numbers are consistently slightly under my Garmin measurements. The same is true with the elevation estimates. Despite this, I'm a huge fan of this app.

    Accurate and easy to use. Have not figured it all out yet, kind of clumsy when it comes to the instructional part of the app. Fortunately it is easy enough to use right after downloading. Done 3 races now and have not had a single problem. The one thing that would put this app in a league of its own, is to allow for real time tracking for friends and family. Update are great. But not the same. Allowing user to pre-draw the route so others can follow, but it also allows user to visualize the route and know what is up ahead including hills and big turns. Love the app. CTH

Loads of detailed data feedback in different formats. App is incredibly good value, especially compared with certain other big names.

  • Worked Okay Oct 19, 2019

    By asdghkktsidt
    I used this app in a corn maze (it was a large corn maze) and it worked out pretty well except it kept trying to correct the paths while we were walking. Like, it refused to accept the possibility of a curved trail, or that we walked in a large circle. Sadly, we did not get the chance to see how accurate this app could draw out the Alice in Wonderland maze the owners of the farm made, but the satellite imaging did help get us out of the maze with the sleeping toddler, which we did appreciate. Imma keep this app and test its accuracy another day... I wanna complete the maze... I’m seventeen, I get to be a child.

    Started using this in place of another sports tracker app. Walkmeter I can actually get to record my walks even when the phone is locked. The only thing I'd like to see improved are the graphs. Would be nice if you could zoom in/out but the main gripe is no scale on the altitude graph and the other graphs the scales are hanging off the end of my screen.
  • Heart Rate Problem Sep 11, 2020

    I’ve used this app for several years, but I upgraded to Elite when I saw the heart rate feature within the app, and display on my iWatch. This worked wonderfully for a week... now the heart rate isn’t captured at all. I know that the HR still works on the iWatch, but not within the app. I’m very disappointed. I love walking, listen to music, and getting my pace updates from the Walkmeter app. I’ve tried everything to fix it. After a couple weeks I got it to work for one day. I love the app, but I won’t keep the Elite, if the HR doesn’t work.
  • What Happened to the Map? Aug 11, 2017

    I have used this app for years, and happily paid for Elite. It’s been great. Today I went for a walk on a trail I’ve taken many times before. I was impressed at how much faster my speeds had gotten. But strange things were happening. I’d lock my phone, unlock it to check my progress, and suddenly it was telling me my mile pace was way way faster than it should have been. Leaving my phone unlocked, while not practical, helped a bit. When I finished my round trip on the trail, my numbers and splits were all better than I’d had before. Checked the map, and, for some reason Walkmeter is thinking a round trip on this hiking trail, a mile out and a mile back, is actually more like 2.3 miles. Only a few weeks ago Walkmeter was properly seeing this as a 2 mile walk. So my distance is way off, screwing up everything else. What is going on?

    Stops working after approx. 6 minutes no matter what I try. 🤔Thanks for your response. I think I have now sorted the issue but it would have been helpful if on installation a brief message had appeared to help those of us who are not that tech savvy as to what to look out for and how to sort out any possible issues.

    Although it's perfect for my limited need, route mapping is terrible, off by some 200 mtrs! Although it keeps blaming low GPS accuracy, I don't quite buy it because my google driving asssistant works perfectly on the same devise.

    So, I don’t usually do reviews but since I’ve had such a difficult time with knowing the distance that I walk, I thought I’d share my experience with whoever is reading this. So, I started power walking the same paths daily. I noticed about a month ago that the faster I would walk the same exact path, it would record less the amount of distance. I was noticing walking about 2 miles that I would get 1.6, 1.85, 2.2 and so on. I kinda didn’t think to much in to it. However on Monday (today is Wednesday) I forgot to turn my walking app until approx .5 mile in and my total distance was 3.08 The following day (Tuesday) I turned it on right as I hopped out of my car. My total distance that day was 2.88 miles, a lot less then mondays distance. So, I downloaded run keeper and today it came out to 3.4miles and proves that this app is not accurate for some reason. Maybe they need to update it because it should go by gps. Other then that I think the set up of the app is wonderful. It’s easy to use and haven’t had any issues having it run in the background as I play music, get on the internet, or text. Good app, just not accurate and I will be using run keeper from now on.
  • Paths are noisy and therefore too long Aug 15, 2018

    The idea behind this app is great, and I like the interface as well. Unfortunately the paths it records are often *very* inaccurate and zig-zaggy and so wind up being too long, sometimes by 50% or more. This makes the app pretty much useless for me, despite my wanting to like it. Today, for example, I recorded over 3 miles for what I know to be a two-mile walk. Looking at the map, I could see why: where I had actually walked a straight-line path, the map showed numerous spurious loops and switchbacks. My supposed pace during this segment was 6 minutes/mile. This may be due to inherent noisiness in the location information provided by the iPhone. If so, the solution would be to use much longer time intervals (e.g., 1-2 minutes) between samples. This would ensure that the actual distance walked between samples is relatively large compared to the inevitable slop in the location info.

    I only use it for walks and it works fine for these. There is a problem with battery use as it continues to have GPS on after exit. There is an option to quit which works but I can only find it in advanced settings. I have resorted to force close to stop the battery drain. There should be an obvious quit button on the main page.

    App is not tracking distance, only time. Have uninstalled and reinstalled. Still not working properly. Used it very successfully for 2 years previously. I thank you for your email but the indoor setting is turned off. That's not the problem.

    Works somewhat. Yesterday I told walkmeter to stop. And it did (I thought) but today it added today's walk to the end of yesterday's?? I think it wanted me to press stop and done?? And when I wanted to look at the map of today's walk it said I didn't have google maps installed. That is correct but what does that have to do with the price of tea? I choose to use a different map app and if walkmeter requires me to install google maps that likely means I will UNinstall walkmeter.

    App seems decent but I'm trying to upgrade to premium using my Google Play balance and it says I have an insufficient balance. Not true as I redeemed a card and my Play account clearly shows the balance. It's a pita but I'll have to do the trial, cancel, then see it if will take my Play balance in 6 days. Why won't the app see my correct balance?

    It cannot cope with a walk that includes train rides, even if it is paused while one is on the train. Even on a simple walk the map just shows a straight line from start point to end point, not the actual route. The presentation of results is unclear and amateurish. Replaced with a better app.

    I hate to give just 1 star, esp since it appears to have plenty of nice features/functions, but it just doesn't track correctly & the miles counted & pacing is way off. I've given it numerous tries with all recommended settings & system adjustments. A known 3 mile walk shows only 2 miles in the app and the map shows that I walk over lakes and through buildings. My I'net is strong and other apps track my routes successfully. Useless for me.

    I have tried to use this app 3 times. It crashed and failed on the second two attempts. This combined with the fact that it must be one of the most Ad laden apps in the store explains why the developers demand such a high price to purchase it. They do not expect to sell many copies. Not for me thank you

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the app. However, all my progress was lost as the app did not back it up. I was not able to restore my progress from 2020 to 2021. Please assist me in restoring my workout history.

    I find walkmeter to be a double edge sword. In early stages of training the systems is too difficult to understand all the option available. Then, once you get familiar you find out how useless this technology can be. In order for a runner or athlete to improve they need reliable and dependable data. Walkmeter provides neither. Without alerting user Walkmeter just expired. So, tracking data is interrupted. This confirms the company just wants your money. Plus, no one to talk to. I’ve had Walkmeter for several years. Conclusion: not accurate, no training, sensitive and affected but power lines, etc. bottom line is: a marathon runner explained to me. A runner knows and don’t need to be told they’re doing right or wrong.
  • No heart rate tracking? Jul 17, 2020

    By thisisfumb
    What I want is essentially the Apple Watch exercise track plus decent elevation tracking, because I mostly hike on bluffs for my workout. This does decent elevation tracking! But while it has a screen for tracking heart rate, it stays at “—“ the whole time. Looking at the recording afterwards my heart rate shows as a flat 100 the whole time, and my calories burned is like 18. Without that heart rate, this offers less than the free app and isn’t worth the price. I’ve gone over the Health settings a dozen times and can’t find a permission I’ve missed. Am I crazy or does this really not track heart rate?
