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.

nice idea but you have to walk thousands of miles for any real benefit to rescues. the app always freezes up or shuts down says resume even when u have good internet new upgrade from iphone 5 to iphone se day before xmas now almost nothing records so frustrated we have lots of suppprters now and everyone beleives the rescues are benefiting but so far it freezes or doesnt record .
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.
Amazing in Every Way!
I absolutely love this app. Which is astonishing, even to me, because I barely ever give any app, book, or something that requires a review five (or in some cases ten) stars!
All the technical problems that other reviewers are having trouble with are just that; technical problems. If you are having a problem, contact the app developers.
But the concept of the app is brilliant. It forces you to get yourself up off the couch and go for a walk or a physically active activity, all to raise money for animal shelters. Although one reviewer claims that you can only walk "thousands of miles" for real benefits, I believe that it is worth the time and effort to walk or run or bike several miles, which benefits both your health and the animals.
Additionally, every little .1 of a mile gives more money to animals, which is more money than what they started with in the first place. Remember, every single dollar counts! And if you are worried that you'll have to take your dog for a walk, then I am happy to say that walking your dog is not required. So if you love animals, no matter if you have twenty or one (though twenty would be hoarding unless you run a home shelter or have fish and take care of them and their needs), download this free, no in-app-purchases app and start saving animals today! Really, I mean it.
Well, there is not enough good that I can say about this app, so I'll just wrap this whole review up with saying that you will not regret downloading this app. I promise (unless you are a cold hearted, lazy human being). Thanks for reading!
