"App of the week" - Auto Express 11 Jan 2012.
Anyone who drives on the motorways of England, Scotland and Wales will benefit from this guide to walks within 5 miles of motorway exits. All of the UK is covered, from Exeter to Perth and Swansea to Canterbury.
The app also features optional persistent location tracking, allowing the user to receive a notification when approaching a listed motorway walk even when the app is in the background. Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life, and that this feature is best activated when already on a listed motorway to conserve battery.
Use this app to get more fun for your fuel, see more of the countryside, take a healthy break, or enjoy a relaxing pub lunch.
The app features nearly 200 30- to 45-minute walks, many with a selected pub or café along the way. Activities for children are included, from play areas and bouncy castles to nature trails.
All of the walks are suitable for dogs, and those with assistance dogs will find details of accessible paths and disabled facilities – for example, RADAR, a key that is made available to registered disabled people, which enables them to access locked disabled WCs and facilities.
Most of the pubs are traditional inns, serving high quality food at realistic prices. Landlords, chefs and opening times can change quickly, and phone numbers are given for you to check in advance to avoid disappointment.
The listed pubs all welcome well-behaved canines.
Simple to use – just select the motorway, then browse the junctions and select the walk you want. The app includes a handy map view, making it easier to find your way.
- Minor amendments to backend code due to deprecations.
- Added activity spinner in walk view.
Ratings and Reviews
A very handy app for when travelling a long way with a dog.
V2.22 Excellent App
With the release of v2.22, the bug in v2.2 has now been fully resolved & I'm pleased to re-rate this excellent app as 5*.
V2.2 Has Serious Bug
I have an iPhone 4 running iOS 7. Just loaded v2.2 & found that when I select Motorways then chose any motorway then select any junction listed, the app simply closes down?!?! Developers, please fix this bug ASAP. I would normally give app 4 or 5 stars but currently only warrants 0 or 1
