The Walk - Fitness Tracker and Game
By Six to Start
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Created with the NHS and the UK's Department of Health, The Walk helps you walk more, every single day. When you’re playing The Walk, every step counts.
A bomb explodes in Inverness station, and you’re given a package that could save the world. To stay alive, you’ll need to walk the length of the UK. The Walk is more than just a great pedometer/step counter — it's a way to turn walking into a journey, a challenge, and a rip-roaring adventure.
Made by Six to Start and Naomi Alderman, creators of the world’s most popular running game with over 800,000 players, Zombies, Run!
ENGADGET - “Simple, fun, effective.”
JOYSTIQ - "Spices up your step-tracking with some danger and intrigue.”
BBC NEWS - “Encourages users to walk 10,000 steps-a-day to help improve their health”
LIFEHACKER - “You're motivated to actually get up and move around so you can progress further into the story, and it works really well.”
AWESOME ACTIVITY TRACKER
Just put your phone in your pocket or purse and we’ll track every walk and run you take — and map it, too!
You’ll walk the length of the UK while evading capture by the police and enemy agents. Can you work out who set off that bomb in the first place and what their plan is? Get ready for an epic adventure across 65 episodes, 800 minutes of audio, and hundreds of miles.
Get rewarded for walking more by collecting clues, scanning for information, and unlocking achievements.
The Walk adjusts its difficulty based on individual fitness levels. Everyone’s different, and we make sure we give you the right level of challenge!
OPTIMISED FOR M7 IN IPHONE 5S
Got the iPhone 5s? Then you’ll love The Walk — we use the M7 to count your steps even more accurately and with even less battery usage.
- Requires iOS 7. Works on iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPod Touch 5th gen.
- Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. The Walk uses your phone’s accelerometer to measure your movement, and primarily uses wifi and cell towers to track location. We also use GPS sparingly when for tracking your walking routes.
- To maintain constant tracking, you’ll need to have ‘Background App Refresh’ set to ON for The Walk (Settings > General > Background App Refresh)

What's New in Version 1.3
Bug fixes for iOS 9 users
Good story even with glitches
The trick to keeping the app from resetting your episodes is tapping on the amount walked in the upper left before anything else whenever you open the app. That allows the app to suddenly remember where you are. The app still crashes periodically if multiple apps are open in the background. Still the story is good enough that I keep playing despite the problems with the app. I enjoy it. It gets me moving.
Need more compatibility
I was hoping I could sync my Fitbit to it since I don't always have my phone on me. :/ Thats the only reason I bought the app.
Sounds intriguing. Would like to be able to use it
It only works for iPhones, and I only have an iPod. Therefore, if it loses track of where I am (no wifi), then this is useless. Can this not just have a timer so I can go places and listen to the story instead of having to go buy a smartphone just for this?
