Virtually walk anywhere, including on an active volcano in Hawaii.
Here is an example:
* Set route from Hollywood, CA to Long Beach, CA , which is a 27.93 mile route.
* Invite friends to walk with you.
* Anywhere you walk moves your map pin along the route.
* Track both your progress and your friends’ progress along the route.
* Select and save a default map pin color for all routes or let the App select a random color.
* The App does not need to be running for it to keep track of your progress. It reads the data from Apple’s motion chip as far back as seven days.
The Walk With Friends! App uses Apple's pedometer information to track every step and mile you walk with your iPhone and adds those miles to EVERY route you have created or accepted from a friend.
The App also shows steps and miles walked during the current day.
It shows the number of floors ascended on all modern iPhones
iCloud is required to share data with friends.
You can create any route in the world that Apple Maps servers cover.
The Walk With Friends! App can find walking routes or driving routes based on your selection. If the App cannot find your requested route, it will default to “any route” as defined by Apple Maps’ servers.
More features in the works...
Full sneakers ahead!
minor bug fix
Ratings and Reviews
Since the update I can only see the beginning and destination pins. My friends and I are gone! I would give this app a 6 if it could go back to the way it was before the update. I loved and referred this app to so many people before. Please fix.
****Thanks for your quick response! Everything works now. This app is so fun to use, I just love it!
Developer Response ,
Should be fixed now. This is a difficult bug to track down as it does not manifest when I try to fix it - it works perfectly. Try deleting and reinstalling latest version 2.1.1. Your data is in the cloud so everything (including pins) should show back up. Please email me directly from the App and let me know if this works.
Fun and Motivating
I am competitive by nature and don’t like anyone getting too far ahead of me! This is a fantastic gotta have app. I decided to tip the developer.
Developer Response ,
I really appreciate your kind words and your five star review! And after months of work I really appreciate your tip!
Thanks a ton!
