Virtual Walk Treadmill or GPS


**Named Best Walking App for 2013 in the About.com Reader's Choice Awards**

Walk with your friends! Invite your friends to walk with you and see each other's progress on the map. Compete with your friends to reach the end, or gain motivation from friends to keep you going.

Track your walking using GPS or a treadmill, and use your accumulated miles towards different walking routes around the world. Even if you are just walking on your treadmill at home, circling your neighborhood, or walking on your local high school track, you can challenge yourself to complete the Appalachian Trail or take a tour of the memorials in Washington D.C. There are plenty of walks to choose from, with many more on the way!

Each route has something different to offer. While on your treadmill or with GPS outside, "walk" past landmarks on your route, view rich content including high quality pictures and information that sounds like it came straight from a tour guide. But don't think it comes so easy, information about landmarks are locked until you reach them!

Treadmill setting works by setting the speed in the Virtual Walk app to match the speed on your treadmill at home. If outside, use GPS instead. The GPS is very accurate. Virtual Walk automatically detects a low GPS signal and shuts down to save battery life.

Virtual Walk works as a daily fitness tracker. Virtual Walk automatically keeps track of your time and mileage while you are walking and logs it in a nice format for you to review later. Longer routes can be done in multiple days, as Virtual Walk will save your progress automatically when you are finished, so that you can start where you left off tomorrow.

Walk store to download more walks, that expands every week!

Fabulous I absolutely love the virtual checkpoints, history lessons and high quality pictures. I just started the first leg of the Appalachian Trail. This will definitely end the monotony of my weekday walks. I hit numerous trails on the weekend. Highly recommend.

Eileen Cummings 10/20/14 I just started this tonight. Seems like I will like having the "goals" to meet on the walk. I'll come back at a later date & update

Good Would love for it to do a verbal description of the walks.

It's Ok has potential The app is ok but I wish it actually simulated you walking instead of the little icon thing that only moves every when you reach that disctance. Also they need to get rid of the trivia questions, really who has time for trivia while your walking. The app should move across the scene as you are walking.

GREAT app! It's works well (I have a Galaxy S4) and my goal is to eventually finish the full Appalachian Trail :-)
