Virtual Walk Treadmill or GPS

Virtual Walk Treadmill or GPS


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

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!

Polarchick Love this app! Really keeps me motivated. The only problem I've encountered that's a little annoying is sometimes when I open it up relatively shortly after having used it and then exiting, it loses my most recent mileage gain. It's easy enough to fix, I just set the speed at 100 mph, watch it closely and stop when I've returned to my latest stopping point.

Had to give it something Not able to add any other walks. Does not give me access to the shop. Pictures indicate that I should see transparent building when walk is in the city yet I don't. Removing app

Doesn't make any sense... How are you supposed to use this app? I wanted to use it with a treadmill. There are no help or tips menus, and no instructions how to use the app. I guessed it worked like a pedometer, until I started a route while lying in bed and the indicator on the map showed I was constantly moving at 2.5mph... I was in bed!!! Lol Doesn't really do anything other than play a video of an icon moving on a map, unless im missing something. ..

Okay The app is okay for a free app. To make a true virtual walk would definitely be a pay/subscription app to say nothing of the challenges of developing such an app. Still, it is an entertaining app. It would be leaps and bounds better with sounds in the background, if just birds and wind. The map has no contours or satellite info. That would help the interface.
