ResQwalk by Best Friends Animal Society
You can help raise awareness and support for animal welfare organizations and deserving pets looking for their forever homes, simply by walking with this free mobile app.
Simply pick your favorite animal welfare partner from the list, 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 activity, share about your adventure and pet to help inspire more to adopt and save them all.
Some months, corporate sponsors may provide a pool of cash and product contributions you can help secure for your selected group or you can participate in the monthly walking goal or challenge.
Please note: continued use of GPS running in the background may significantly decrease battery life.
Ratings and Reviews
Lots of issues now!
Same thing happened to me getting logged out! Now I somehow have three accounts and it zapped my chosen rescue as well. I lost all my past pics and can’t get back into my account. I sent an email to Best Friends and they responded back with desire to help. Hopefully soon it will all be resolved.
Also, I’ve noticed over time that the distance calculator is approximately .25 or so shorter than it should be. Not sure why this is but I run this app along with another and also on a known mile track and it’s always off. Frustrating!
Otherwise I usually love this app! Love being able to donate to rescue of my choice! Love being able to share pics with my walk and look at other’s pics as well. That makes it fun! Just wish it was in better working order.
This app motivates me to walk more knowing I am helping to raise money for the animal charity of my choice. I like that the app keeps track of how far I walked each day which allows me to set goals. I have also contacted the developer with a question and received a prompt response.
Great idea, but
I like using this app to measure just how far I walked with my dog. Stopped working recently, server connection problems. I’m on Verizon and everything should be working fine. Reviewed other reviewers and they are having similar problems. I’ll try to delete app and reinstall, but unlikely the app will function. A good app, which encourages exercising you and your pet. Should be far more reliable.
