ResQwalk is a free mobile app that enables you to raise resources for animal welfare organizations, simply by walking. At the beginning of each month, ResQwalk puts together a ResQpool that includes cash and product contributions from corporate sponsors. In order to earn part of the pool, simply pick your favorite ResQpartner, start the app, and go for a walk, run or participate in any other outdoor activity that can be measured by GPS and involves a speed of less than 14 mph. At the end of every month, the ResQpool is proportionally distributed amongst the animal welfare organizations on the app.
Other notable app features include:
-Pet Friendly Places: You can discover local parks, dog runs, pet stores and veterinary clinics as well as pet friendly hotels, restaurants and shops.
-Visibility for Adoptable Animals: Each day ResQwalk features an adoptable 'ResQanimal of the Day'. The hope is that you will share these animals and help them get adopted.
-Photo Sharing: You can share photos with your friends and followers on the app.
-Leaderboards: View the leaderboard to see how your friends and favorite animal welfare organizations are stacking up against the competition.
Please note: continued use of GPS running in the background may significantly decrease battery life.

Pay the shelters more money!
I have been using this app for about 10 months and have recorded 200 miles of walking. Except for a couple walks where the app crashed and I lost the walk (one time it happened when I got a call) it mostly works great and does what it needs to. I have not noticed a huge drain on the battery like others have reported.
The only thing that bugs me is how lousy the payout is. The top ranked shelter, which has logged thousands of miles in the last month made a whopping $19. That isn't exactly inspiring. Meanwhile, the shelter I walk for made a whole 4¢. Really? Does that money even really get paid to the shelter or is there a minimum to receive the payout?
I love the idea of this app and it has got me out walking with my dogs more but I want it to have a bigger benefit for the shelters. ResQWalk should also work on promotion and providing tools to the shelters to help them promote it. More users means you can change advertisers more which means more money for the shelters.
Doesn't pick up correct amount of movement
I love the idea of this app! BUT...it doesn't correctly record my movements which is frustrating. I always turn this on when I mow my lawn (I use a walk behind not riding mower) and some days it says I got .34 miles, other days it say 1.30 miles. My yard doesn't change size each week! I used a pedometer yesterday in conjunction with the app and found out I actually walked 2.10 miles not the .33 the app said I did. The charity of my choice is getting cheated!!! Please fix this.
Love this app!!
I use this app every time I go for a walk, with or without my dog. It's great because you can compete against family, friends and other people who are walking for your rescue. I love the fact that you can like people's walks and pictures it helps motivate you to walk more.
