Seeing your everyday life in a new way can motivate you to move more. Set simple goals (e.g. 10,000 steps a day) and start with small changes that can lead to a fitter lifestyle and healthier habits.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Moves has been designed to use GPS and other sensors sparingly. The app relies mostly on acceleration data, cell tower and Wi-Fi locations. The Battery Saving Mode will further minimize battery consumption when stationary in a place.
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT IOS 7
Moves needs to run continuously in the background to track your activities:
Ensure that you have BACKGROUND APP REFRESH turned ON for Moves (iPhone Settings > General > Background App Refresh)

What's New in Version 2.6.6
Shockingly poor accuracy
I have been encouraged/forced to use this app in order to log my activity to earn cashback on my Vitality health insurance. Previously I used micoach to track my activity, but Vitality no longer accepts that.
Moves is a very poor substitute. It is diabolically inaccurate - failing to recognise when I switch from tube to walking to cycling on my commute, or from running to walking during my training sessions. It clearly does not accurately track your route, my trips around the M25 frequently veer off across countryside rather than tracking the actual route I have travelled. It appears not to follow you at all if you move around in one location - I spent two hours walking around a National Trust garden last week and it recorded just 4 minutes of walking. Micoach could have plotted it down to the footpaths I'd used, as well as providing information about pace, elevation and providing training programmes too.
It really munches up your battery too.
Overall it is rubbish - and that is before I go near the issue of it being on all the time and providing feedback to God knows who about where you go. Avoid like the plague...
Frustrating app others are better
I'll start with the thing I like about the app. I like that it labels your location I also like that it separates each activity walking running cycling and says if you've been on transportation . The biggest problem about the app is that is logs itself off so it stops calculating your moves. It logs back on only when you have changed locations. So it doesn't feel very accurate it also doesn't differentiate run and walking well. I did an insanity work out for 30 minutes which was high impact and it didn't register well at all. There are some good ideas for the app but they're not consistent I just don't feel it's an accurate app so choose not to use it. Unfortunately vitality life/health have this app as one of their ways to log activity points it's one of the new ways to log your activity should you not have a specific device. Very glad to have a device to register my activity otherwise I'd have not many vitality points. Overall a lot of improvement needs to be done to this app.
Loving this simple app
I use this every day to make sure I walk more than 10,000 steps a day in line with the current NHS recommended movement campaign.
If you run it even shows you that too in a different colour circle. If you tap the circle it shows steps then distance then calories burnt. I have had no problems at all with the app. My phone is an iPhone 6 plus. Fantastic and very pleased. I have mine set to be on all the time and have noticed no problem with battery life. The developers do say that you should have an iPhone 5s or above to get the most out of this app. 5/5 for me. Well done.
