    "This free walking app is great at tracking everything I do. For those that don't "run or walk with their phone", it's a simple solution of getting a WearOS device. I have a Fossil WearOS watch and I love it. "

    "One of the best apps for walking that I have tried. It does a great job of keeping track of mileage and average pace and the number of runs or other exercise activities you've completed. There are also reminders to run that is really motivating."

    "Not the best walking app for android in my opinion, it has no options to create a custom workout. GPS tracking also is not correct. it sometmies overestimate your time and underestimate the km you did."

    "I have mixed feelings about this app. It has helped me lose 35 lbs so far but it's also EXTREMELY glitchy. Also the food slection choices can be difficult at times, or hard to find. But I also love the bar code scanner."
