Generally good, but inconsistent.
I've had this a week and am still trying to figure it out. The best thing is that it literally gets me up and walking, taking the long way around and moving more than I had been. I am trying to get back into shape after a pretty serious illness and this is doing the trick.
The bad news is that I'm really not sure how accurate it is. I have another iPhone app and am comparing results of this one with the other one and actual counting of steps as I walk and I'm getting three different results.
Walkathon stops counting if I change direction and sometimes never counts at all. I keep my phone in my pocket, but if I take it out to see if the count is accurate, it stops and then has to recycle through an initial ten steps before it starts counting again, although it does add in those ten steps, but sometimes it never starts up. I know I'm walking, but it's really frustrating to not have an accurate record or miss a challenge I know I've earned. I'm not sure how long I will bear with this before I try another app.
I've looked online for help and clarification but have found no help.
I'd also like to know what the energy lightening bolts mean. I have a bunch, but can't find out what to do with them. I think the map icon is telling me that I've walked enough to get where the pin is, but again, I haven't found any information online. Hopefully, this review will produce some help.
I love this app
Update: myfitnesspal is no longer supporting Striiv I'm very disappointed I've tried to contact them several times but they have not fixed the issue, it would be nice if they accurately put in my steps and calories but it does not it was perfect then it was 100 off now it's not counting anything all my updates say 0! Idk is there another app that supports Striiv better ?
Striiv is a wonderful app for walking/running and having a virtual support team. I currently got injured jogging I fractures my hip. I still have people that I don't even know in my personal life concerned and wishing me well, this encourages me to get better. I am also very limited to what I can do so it's nice to be able to cheer on my friends while they try to reach their daily goals. Because I cannot walk I can somewhat count my bicep curls and arm workouts so it still keeps me motivated. Sometimes it will also count my crutch hops. Hey, walking with one leg is a workout in itself. I can't wait until I am better so I can fully participate again. Thank you Striiv without my virtual friends support I might be a bit down and unmotivated, but getting better is my one priority so I can contribute to my team.
Great for iPhn 5
Ok I wanted to use that windy app but it only works on iPhn 5s. So I found Striiv as an iPhn 5 alternative. At first I thought it was cumbersome with all the challenges and features but as soon as I started using it I really liked it. It's pretty fun-- even accepting little challenges is fun and a good easy way to push yourself--and it deff makes me walk more. The best thing is that it doesn't attempt to put you into some marathon walking regime that is unrealistic. You can walk as far and much or as you want. It's a great advantage to know how much you walked today or that you walked farther than you did yesterday. Before you know it you will be parking further away from the entrance to the mall just to get a few hundred more steps on your count. It works effortlessly as long as the app is open. If you close it it stops counting. Could not be easier. So I'm not upgrading my phone just to get that hot wind app. Lol
Get this app if you have a 5. You won't be disappointed.
