Good app. I enjoy the walk tracking information and knowing that I am helping a shelter. That is the reason I use this over other walk tracking apps. It would be nice to see the actual benefit we are providing to our shelters. Only major complaint is that the app often neglects to record our whole walk. I haven't been able to discern any pattern to why it stops but it often does. Its a bummer when I enjoy the satisfaction of knowing how far I walked (I often change my route on a whim so I don't know the actual miles); and I feel it takes away from my charity that way.
Frustrating to use at times
I've been using this for over a year but finally decided to quit. It seems to drain my iPhone battery for one thing. Another is that it stops recording if I pause while my dog is sniffing a particularly good smelling area. Really makes me mad to check it at the end of a walk just to find that it just stopped recording. When I am getting ready to leave for a walk and have set it up but still putting the harness on the dog, the darned thing has already detected a "pause" and is ready to quit. It would be hard to check and reset while a dog is pulling away at a leash.
Works great. Easy to use.
I've use this app for a year now, walking for my local county SPCA. It feels good to know we're helping our SPCA while walking and getting exercise. And LOVE that it now can be used indoors! It's snowy and cold here, and I like to use the app while walking on my treadmill. I'm using an iPhone 6S with 10.1.1 and app tracks accurately for me.
