Map My Walk Review: Walking Adventures Assistant
Map My Walk is an advanced fitness app. It has a great interface and precise location services that will help you track your exercises and choose the right plan. Download Map My Walk now and know everything about your walks.
Functionality — 4/5
It’s a very reliable and powerful app when it comes to functionality. You can use it even when your phone loses signal, although geolocation is essential if you want the most accurate logging of your route. It can give you updates and track your progress as your speed increases. At the end of a walking session, you get a nice and clean overview report of your progress.
Design — 4/5
Design is pretty straightforward as it takes you right to the workout page when you launch it. It might seem odd if you’re used to seeing the standard main screens with doubtful information. After a few walks, you start to appreciate even more the fact that one less step needs to be done to start working out. By pressing three horizontal lines you get access to the standard sidebar with main features. It’s simple and easy to understand.
Usability — 5/5
Using the app to write this Map My Walk Review was fairly easy since it doesn’t require any advanced tech knowledge from you. You just tap the Start button and the app takes care of the rest. That’s especially convenient for older people who might benefit from such a piece of technology without the need for understanding complex processes. It’s also not intrusive and will not pop up different instructions that distract you from your walk.
The first thing it does is that it automatically logs your walks. If you forgot your phone during a walk you can introduce data manually as well. Since a healthy lifestyle is not only about physical activity, the app also logs your food habits if you have the patience to introduce them daily.
You will see a good calorie counter here that shows the ratio between consumed and burned calories and different social features to help you stay motivated. You can also give extra encouragement to your friends by challenging one another.
Cross-platform use — 4/5
Map My Walk app stands confidently in terms of cross-platformity since it’s available for two major main operating systems. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and even iPod Touch and requires iOS 11.0 or later. Android users can benefit from the application even on the older devices since it requires Android 5.0 or higher. It’s not available for PC or Mac but it’s unlikely that you’re taking those very often for a walk.
As it was said earlier, the app is not intrusive. It has in-app purchases but it won’t force you to buy them every 5 minutes. For $5.99 you can get a monthly MVP and for $29.99 – annual MVP. An MVP premium membership disables ads in the app and brings some even more advanced features like mobile coaching, multiple printed maps, training guidance, interval training, and heart rate analysis.
The Bottom Line
Download MapMyWalk since it has stood the test of time and proved itself as a powerful and efficient companion for your daily walks. It definitely deserves consideration if you’re active or want to be active. It not only tracks your activity but allows you to explore new routes and meet new people by challenging them. The workout data is then stored in a convenient way where you can also see your progress.Collapse
No matter what you do to stay fit, MapMyWalk will be a good assistant app.
