Movn helps you identify and take advantage of small opportunities throughout your day that stack up to huge wins.

Movn also lets you create a friend circle where you can share your achievements and motivate each other to be active as well.

FAQ:
----
● Is Movn the same as a pedometer?
Movn goes beyond what a regular pedometer can do by helping you track active minutes and constantly giving you encouragement to stay active.

● Will Movn drain my phone battery?
In our tests, Movn consumed between 1% and 10% of phone battery levels over 16 hours with typical phone usage. Newer phones consume less battery. We're working hard to reduce battery consumption. We believe that you should control your battery needs, that's why we provide you an explicit on/off button and let you know when Movn records information through the notification icon.

● Why did you not calculate steps?
We include all forms of movement including steps as active minutes. This includes activities like walking, running, jogging and certain sports. Our goal is to get you moving and not worry about steps.

● What if I do not have my phone on me?
You can still report activities with Movn and they will count to your total!

● How is Movn different from wearable sensors like Fitbit?
We use your phone. That's it. With Movn you don't have to worry about losing or damaging your expensive tracker. And Movn sends you lots of encouragement when you need it.

● How does Movn capture my movements?
Movn uses multiple sensors on your phone and patent-pending algorithms to track your active minutes.

● Why should I stay active?
Performing moderate intensity exercise like walking, running, cycling and jogging for at least 30 minutes a day can reduce your risk for a variety of conditions like diabetes, coronary heart disease, obesity, hypertension, high blood pressure, depression and some forms of cancer. Going to the gym once a day is not enough, it’s important to stay active throughout your day.

Great app! I love it. All I was looking for was a app to remind me to get off my butt once in a while at work and then I found this! Cannot wait until android wear and Google fit is supported!!! I removed one star because the persistent notification on my phone is driving me nuts. UPDATE: App is continuously crashing, so I'm taking off many stars

Extremely inaccurate This app said I had 65 minutes of activity and I counted 24. Really needs some work. Try using the Google Fit api; it's remarkably precise.

Great app It's a great app. Perfect for people who spend most of the day sitting in front of a computer. You can set your own goals and periodic reminders to take a 5 minute break to stretch your legs. The home screen widget helps you track your activity without even opening the app.
