**Named Best Walking App for 2013 in the About.com Reader's Choice Awards**
Walk with your friends! Invite your friends to walk with you and see each other's progress on the map. Compete with your friends to reach the end, or gain motivation from friends to keep you going.
Virtual Walk with Street View! Now available for selected walks. Try it out for free with the Grand Canyon.
Track your walking using GPS or a treadmill, and use your accumulated miles towards different walking routes around the world. Even if you are just walking on your treadmill at home, circling your neighborhood, or walking on your local high school track, you can challenge yourself to complete the Appalachian Trail or take a tour of the memorials in Washington D.C. There are plenty of walks to choose from, with many more on the way!
Each route has something different to offer. While on your treadmill or with GPS outside, "walk" past landmarks on your route, view rich content including high quality pictures and information that sounds like it came straight from a tour guide. But don't think it comes so easy, information about landmarks are locked until you reach them!
Treadmill setting works by setting the speed in the Virtual Walk app to match the speed on your treadmill at home. If outside, use GPS instead. The GPS is very accurate. Virtual Walk automatically detects a low GPS signal and shuts down to save battery life.
Virtual Walk works as a daily fitness tracker. Virtual Walk automatically keeps track of your time and mileage while you are walking and logs it in a nice format for you to review later. Longer routes can be done in multiple days, as Virtual Walk will save your progress automatically when you are finished, so that you can start where you left off tomorrow.
Walk store to download more walks, that expands every week!
"very addictive to want to put in an extra mile..."
"alleviate the monotonous nature of dog walking..."
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
Don't know how this would have won any awards. It's a google map with a few pop up pictures. It says virtual Walk so I expected to see the actual places as the virtual Walk but it's just a map. I could do that with my maps app already on my phone. This was dumb so I deleted it.
So this is just a few Flickr photos? I thought it was going to move along like I was actually on a trail. I have clicked everything and looks like a bunch of static photos only. If not someone please help?
