••••• Why I made Move •••••
I'm a computer programmer. I sit in a chair all day and stare at a glowing rectangle. That isn't what humans are designed to do. I created Move to solve my own problem and remind me to stretch or get my heart rate up throughout the day. This helps keep my body active and makes me feel better at the end of the day.
I created this app to encourage me to lead a healthier lifestyle. I hope it does the same for you.

Perfect for getting me more active in the office and in life!
Recently I've been trying to live a healthier life in every aspect–nutrition, fitness/activity, emotionally, mentally, etc. I work full time at an office sitting behind a desk for 8 hours a day. I have become well aware of how detrimental this can be to my physical self, remaining so inactive on a constant basis. So I was curious about how to get more active and stand up & get moving more at work. I just needed a way to remember to do so! I got this app 2 days ago and am already LOVING it–so simple, and just what I need. Every 30 minutes (I got to select the time increment) I get a reminder to Move, so I stand up, walk a lap around the office, then go to a secluded hallway to complete the prompted exercise. These exercises are simple enough that I can do them at work quickly without expending too much energy (not like running a mile, just simple things like wall sits, crunches, push ups, and fun things like dancing and doing the Macarena!) Again, I cannot say how much I love this app and how much it is already helping me. I would highly recommend it!
Almost great, but has a fatal flaw...
I loved this app when I first bought it; I even bought all the addons and set up some exercises of my own. It worked great for several days and I was feeling good about my activity level and my purchase.
Then I had a few days where I was in meetings all day and couldn't follow the reminder schedule, so I asked it to skip a couple of days. I went back to it a several days later when I realized it hadn't started up again and discovered that it wasn't scheduled to resume for three weeks! (I know I didn't click the skip *that* many times...) Rather than ask it to skip a day, you need to be able to just turn it off and back on again. Or at the very least, be able to undo those skipped days so it will work again.
I waited the three weeks, and was eventually able to use it again, but it repeated the same issue and I am now in a four week skip period, which makes the app pretty useless. If I delete it and reload, I will loose all the customization I set up and it would probably just do the same thing again... Please fix!!!
Waste of time and money
I own another app from the same person (Moment) which has been really helpful, so I gave this one a shot. I looked through the list of exercises and realized some would be hard for me right now, and many were unfamiliar to me. All the list has is a number of reps and the name of the exercise. No explanations of what the exercises are or instructions how to do them. Because I trust the app maker, I bought the Beginner's Pack for 99 cents, thinking that at least they would be easier or more familiar. It's another list of reps and exercises, many of which are variations on the free list, or the exact same with less reps. Honestly, I felt ripped off. I saw there was a custom exercise option, and thought I could salvage the purchase that way - nope, you only get access to custom exercises if you buy the 4 pack of lists for $2.99.
I'm more disappointed than angry - I was hoping this app would live up to the quality of the other, but instead it's getting deleted and I'm out 99 cents.
