- New Ground Miles badges* are added regularly, including unique badges for the casual walker, the early morning riser, and those who walk in their local park. *Some badges require GPS

Walk together and stay social
- Join or create virtual walking groups with friends or family anywhere in the world and see your collective miles accumulate
- Share your badges and walking milestones with friends via social media including Facebook and Twitter

Tailor and monitor your walking goals

Battery Killer.... Have been using this for about 4 days now. It has potential but seems like it could do with added features. But it's literally killing my battery - uninstalled.

Inaccurate Tried with and without Gps active, turns out either way it is totally inaccurate. The 30 steps from my room to shower was apparently 2kms without Gps and 1km with Gps. Maybe this only works on a Samsung device?

Battery Drainer Runs in the background and turbo-drains the battery. In a few hours my battery went from full to dead, overnight while the phone was in standby mode.
