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.

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.
Great idea, but it kills my phone
I love the concept, and I appreciate the ability to track my walks. However, if I try to use another app - like the camera or listen to podcasts - at the same time, my phone stops working entirely. It won't turn back on until I plug it in to charge! I think it may sap the battery but it certainly must have a dangerous glitch to shut everything down like that.
I really want to use this app but I can't when it kills my phone with nearly every use.
