  • Walking for peace Jun 28, 2020

    By neatnicky
    I like to use the app on days when I’m miserable and nothing is going my way. Everyone wants to exercise more...until their shows are on and their day is going wrong. This way I am walking for peace. Every bad day for me is an awesome thing that happened for someone else in a bad situation who can’t solve their problem alone. “If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together.” With this app I am not stuck alone on my bad days. I am moving towards a world that is a peaceful, helpful, united place for everyone. Peace is not a race, it’s a marathon. So walk, run, bike that marathon when and where you can in however many steps you can because somewhere out there on the app someone is running it with you.

    I’ve only just downloaded this app a few days ago, but I was super excited when I found out about it since I enjoy walks and walk dogs regularly. The concept behind it is great, but the app itself is laughable. It tells you nothing about how much you’ve raised, and there isn’t even a $ per mile explanation in the FAQ, which I find kind of suspicious. You’d think this is the most basic piece of information that all users would want to know, so to forget to include this seems intentional and kind of sketchy. What you get in your profile instead, is a total mile count, and a comically useless graph that displays the distribution of the miles by day/week/year. However, there are no labels on this graph so it is essentially useless. Al you can get from the graph is what days you exercised more/less than usual. TL;DR: developers, what is you thinking?!

    Have great experience with syncing with Strava from day one which is 4 months ago. I sync my garmin watch with Strava and connect charity miles to Strava. For those who has trouble tracking their activity using this app, I suggest you use strava instead for activity tracking and connect your charity miles app to strava.

    Unless you’re extremely fortunate, you likely know someone who would benefit from one of these charities. If you’re not an avid runner but you’d like to be, heres your motivation: a large corporate entity (think Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, etc) sponsors your run, meaning they donate based on the miles you run for the charity you select. Hurricane recently wrecked an area you love? Habitat for Humanity is there. Want to help hungry families get through the pandemic? Got you covered. Lose your dad to a glioblastoma like me and Meghan McCain? Stand Up To Cancer loves your miles. I leaned into running a lot when I lost my dad three years ago. The grief was just too big and running gave me whatever I needed at the moment: time to process, a quiet space to grieve, a distraction when it was too much. Charity Miles helps me feel like I’m giving back. And sure, these corporations could afford to donate thousands more than what I can run, but this gives me more purpose. That’s my sob story. Everybody’s got one. If you are looking for a kind, loving community to get you started on your journey, Charity Miles has you covered there too. Honestly, you could do worse.

    So I absolutely love this app. The interface is great. It’s super easy to use. You get to choose between loads of charities to be walking/running/biking for. The only issue that I’m finding with this, and maybe I just haven’t figured out how to do it yet, but I can’t connect the app to be tracked through my smart watch. Here’s why it’s a problem: I run on a treadmill and like to catch up on my series while I run, so my phone sits on the treadmill not moving. Well the app thinks I’m not moving... heck, I’ve even had it in my hand when I’m walking on the treadmill and it still thought I wasn’t moving. I’m not sure how sensitive the motion detection is, but it’s just mildly frustrating that there’s no way to track my miles when I want to use my phone for something during my indoor walk/run

    I love this idea and have been using this app for years but the app is broken and I'm done wasting time messing with it. I just ran 4 miles and it will only log it as .3 miles. If the app is not open, AND on top of all other apps it will not track your distance. I have all the permissions and settings fixed I've checked so many times. How about donate some of the money to your tech so it is user friendly! Uninstall. I'll be looking for a paid version of this that donates a dollar a month.

    This might be the worst app I've ever used. The purpose would be great if it worked consistently. Freezes constantly. GPS tracking is way off. Sometimes it gives more mileage, and others it registers nothing at all. Also claims to have Strava integration but that doesn't seem to work at all after trying 100 times to troubleshoot it with their service team. Massive improvements needed for Android application.

    Hello. I’m trying to use this app for a miles competition with my family and the problem that I’m running into (haha) is that there are only three exercise options. While I do run, bike and walk, I also cross country ski and hike. Other people also kayak, swim, in-line skate, unicycle etc.) I would love it if there were more options. Also, the miles aren’t really equal. Biking ten miles on pavement is a lot easier than running ten trail miles. Shouldn’t running count for more or biking count for less? In another miles competition I was part of (called 100 miles in May) they had the miles calculated on a metabolically with running as the basis. Shouldn’t Charity Miles do something like that? Otherwise it’ll be a lot easier for the road bikers to rack up miles than the trail runners. (Just an example) Thanks. Hopefully those two things can be changed. Have a great day person reading this.

    OCT 2020 UPDATE: Still buggy & problematic; uninstalling. "Woof Trax" app is a better fit for me. JAN 2020 UPDATE: I've had this app for years & definitely love & appreciate the link between fitness & chartible giving. But the last update in Dec has been problematic. For example: after multiple walks per day (I have a very active dog), app fails to consistently log/update daily miles, my "streak" always remains at "0 Days," and continually fails to link w/the "Walgreens/Bal. Rewards" app.

    I gave this 2 stars because I think the concept is great. Otherwise, it would be 1 star for the app function. The app looks great and is easy to use, but the tracking is horribly inaccurate which is, in my opinion, the most important part of the app.

  • App & Podcast Jan 25, 2018

    By Lacy noel
    Charity Miles, is an amazing app that allows us to log miles for the charity of our choice. There are tons of charities to choose from, and you do not have to “BE” anything special. It does not cost you a dime! You can join teams—be competitive if you wish too! There is also a podcast which is an inspiration. It shares incredible feats, great ideas, perseverance, and dedication can make the impossible—possible. If you listen when you do housework—you’ll end up taking your dogs for a walk, running a 5k, and maybe even qualifying for Boston one day. It discusses real life struggles leading to great things—not in a solitary room, but on busy streets across the country! Give it a listen—you will not be disappointed!

  • Fabulous! Dec 29, 2018

    By SeekingGodAlone
    If I could give this app 20 stars I would. It has been a tremendous incentive to me to exercise more, thus helping build my old osteoporosis ridden bones while helping others at the same time. I use it every chance I get, while cleaning, doing yard work, etc. And every time I use it I know some good company with the smarts and heart will pay the charity of my choice for the miles I walk! It helps the companies because I’m certainly more apt to use their products to help support them in return. And there is even more inventive now that the app has started adding rewards for miles completed. It just seems to be a win-win-win all around. Kudos and thanks to the Charity Miles developers! Keep up the wonderful work.

  • Great app! could use improvement Feb 9, 2018

    By Silver Supertramp
    This app is really motivating me to get out and expertise more than I already do. My school made a team on the app, and so the leaderboards are a fun aspect to have. I love that I can give money to national parks when I’m out enjoying nature. The app is also very useful for measuring distances of trips you take every day as well as the exact time it takes you to get to your destination. It’s fun to get to know the stats of my home town. I do wish that the interface was easier to use and more informative. The information that you can access is extremely limited. You can’t see any of your friend’s profiles, let alone their best times or fastest times. You can’t even see anything about a workout you did except the distance after you finish it. I would love to have more stats for me and my friends. Maybe fastest mph on a bike, or longest distance walked etc. also as it stands it is very easy to just get in a car and say you rode your bike. If the app could show the average speed you went throughout the workout it would eliminate this because people would easily be able to see you cheated.

  • Wonderful App with Purpose...One Flaw Aug 21, 2018

    By Delmonte3161
    I am a huge fan of the Charity Miles app. I love the purpose behind it and am extra motivated by the opportunity to use my exercise for good. I love the podcast! However, indoor tracking is woefully wonky. It is often behind in tracking, or completely freezes or registers nothing/next to nothing. Talk about a let down when you have put in a bunch of miles, and then find that the app has only tracked .125 of a mile. Outdoor tracking is pretty spot-on and consistent, but when the extreme temps drive us indoors, this is where the app is lacking. The actual problem is likely with the device being used and the motion sensors. However, a backup or optional method of tracking would be so helpful!

  • Amazing concept, sub-par execution Feb 8, 2018

    By Menchie '97
    I absolutely love the concept of the app, but the execution isn’t that great. Indoor tracking is extremely inaccurate and I wish it was compatible with my fitbit. Whenever I go grocery shopping, I always turn on this app but even if I spend 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours inside it will still sometimes says that I went 0.0 miles which is always upsetting since I don’t notice until I’m done. It would also be nice if I could sync the app with my fitbit because I always walk at least 5-6 miles daily since I work in retail. They also used to show how much money you were donating to the charity while you were exercising, and I wish they would bring it back.

  • Fantastic idea, app needs to be improved Apr 8, 2018

    By gldngaze
    The concept of this app is fantastic and really inspiring. Unfortunately, the user experience is definitely lacking. Here are some issues and recommendations: - no way to see how miles convert into an actual donation - is it $1 per mile? how much is a charity getting out of all this? - the screen that displays while activity is underway is completely useless - enlarge the tracker and timer so it’s in the center of the screen at least, display a map, or find something inspirational to display - it should be able to pick up GPS data from other activity tracking apps on the phone or not require the app to be running the entire time in order to track activity - see the Pacer app as an example of a third-party activity app that does this

  • Great idea, but needs work Jun 7, 2019

    By 123....
    I got this app as a way to create a group and have that group track miles for a charity, which is what this app is supposed to do, right?!! It doesn’t. It doesn’t track any of my miles within the group, or even on the main page; just 0 miles, 0 streak, 0% inaccurate. I can only see them on my personal page. The help section says maybe it’s because my internet is slow; then why would my miles be logged on my personal page and not in the team?? Contacted support but I was told I should use the app and not Strava; I AM using the app!?? Other things that would be nice include the ability to see who’s in my group, how much money my team and myself have raised for a charity.

  • REMOVE AUTISM SPEAKS Jun 20, 2020

    By NinjaNerd757
    I do not have any gripes with this apps features, but I am appalled that after all of the outcry regarding the misdeeds of Autism Speaks from people who are actually on the Autism Spectrum such as myself, the 'charity' remains as a place which people can donate to! Please open your ears to the demographic this abominable group claims to represent and allow us to send money elsewhere, please! If you would truly like to support people with A.S.D., please consider allowing users to donate to the Autism Self Advocacy Network, a group which is actually supervised by Autistic individuals who care about or individuality and well-being, NOT in finding a cure, which is an incredibly hurtful action, as we do not feel a need to be cured, but rather, we need the opportunity to thrive as non-neurotypical in a majority neurotypical world. I am not angry with the developers, as their heart is in the right place and there is so much good coming from this app from other charities, but I am incredibly distraught - please fix this:(
