I have been using this app to document my daily walks for a couple of years. I have NEVER had a perfect Activity month due to either an app crash or the Activity app doesn’t update when I hit the end button. I have already contacted the app people who, of course, blamed the Activity app that came with the iPhone. That still doesn’t explain the crashes. It seems just stopping to take a picture is enough to do it. It’s frustrating knowing you did the walk, but not getting credit for it. Therefore, I am switching to another means of recording my walks until these issues are resolved.
Review update: after corresponding with Ronni from support we figured out the issue. I was trying to do too many things at one time so now I only have the app open that I am currently using. Presto, no more issues. The app has been working flawlessly since.
Use to be great by A Brink
So I’ve used this app for years. I even signed up and still am. But that will all be ending with the hijacking of another great app by Google. Now even with premium you now get to deal with google ads. So sad to see this happen
Not for 9.99 by The slugggg
Ok app but $10/ year really does not get you much. Most people will do fine with free version. Having a fee renew yearly and app doesn’t really get any better. What’s the point ??? I noticed the increase of ads in free version. Good yearly fee would be $4.99 definitely not $9.99 worth.
Way too many ads. by fossl124
This was a pretty good app to use, however it’s now inundated with ads that can’t be closed unless quitting out of the app, which has ruined the experience.
It’s a shame, but not worth $$ annual fee to upgrade.
Worked Okay by asdghkktsidt
I used this app in a corn maze (it was a large corn maze) and it worked out pretty well except it kept trying to correct the paths while we were walking. Like, it refused to accept the possibility of a curved trail, or that we walked in a large circle. Sadly, we did not get the chance to see how accurate this app could draw out the Alice in Wonderland maze the owners of the farm made, but the satellite imaging did help get us out of the maze with the sleeping toddler, which we did appreciate. Imma keep this app and test its accuracy another day... I wanna complete the maze... I’m seventeen, I get to be a child.
Totally incorrect location tracking by mattski2
An app does NOT need Background App Refresh to track location in the background, and they are not doing continuous background location updates correctly either as the blue status bar reveals by appearing at the wrong times. I don’t know what they want Background App Refresh for but it’s very suspicious. I’ve deleted the app.
Hiker by mdi hikes
This is a great app I don’t leave home without it.
Walk by Miss Mary56
I love it. It keeps me on track
Decent except for heavy map averaging by Hosea_12:6
I first tried another app, but it insisted that you start the “free” 7 day trial of the paid version first. At least this app does not do that.
The free version offers quite a bit including speed, map, keeping historical data, weekly monthly, etc running sums.
My one beef with this app is that it does an overly heavy averaging of the gps location. As I am walking, the dot on the map keeps spot on. There is a blue trail that jumps up to the dot every 4-6 seconds, so that is the frequency of the position stored. When I go around a corner or turn around and head back, the blue line starts shifting for the next 4 or 5 “updates”. So it is averaging the points and overwriting data. The path ends up cutting through yards and even houses. There are a couple of settings affecting smoothing of the path, but no way to turn off the averaging. Since my current spot on the map is exactly right, I really don’t understand why the app needs to do any averaging. (I’m glad my car’s guidance app doesn’t or I would be driving across a lot of parking lots.) I would much appreciate a choice to turn off the averaging and a choice of a higher position data record rate (1-2 seconds)
Broken by Slowe2009
This app is broken after the 13.1.1 update. Pace and miles are off.
No longer works with Apple Watch by Atmoosh
I just upgraded to the iPhone 11 and now for some reason the app on my Apple Watch no longer connects to the iPhone app. Thinking I may have to ditch this app.
Do Not Purchase by Broken on Purpose?
I purchased the Elite Walkmeter app. Since then it has done nothing but continuously locked up and crashed. They have done two updates and neither has fixed the problem. Junk!
Not accurate by two miler
I’ve been using the free app for several years and felt good about its accuracy. It now gives me different readings in distance for the same route. It is no longer smooth on its updates on mileage. I may walk nearly a whole block before it changes and I know from the past it is wrong. It is as if it loses the satellite. I thought maybe it was not accurate anymore because they want me to upgrade to the pay version. It is having the opposite effect. At one time, I loved this app
TRASH by your mommy 55222
Thais app is trash
Walkmeter by derail champ
Walk meter is the best I’ve used it for years I highly recommend it. It has helped me loose 77 lb. in the last 6 months and my doctor could not be more happy. He said this has reversed my type 2 diabetes. Now I will still use the app for maintenance. Love this app !
Great App by Mark Crim
It’ll do everything except wash the socks of the anal retentive.
My Best Walking Buddy by mins5rox
I have been using this app for over a year and I am very happy with the way it works, walk it has to offer and most importantly on how accurate it is.
Distance not working by EP in DC
After positive experiences, the distance suddenly stopped working even after I reinstalled. What’s up with that?
hate this app by Bjklipstein
hate this app, it charges and doesnt allow you to delete it
Very accurate by Cupid999
I read the negative review a decided to review it with my stand along GPS and all features are accurate. Five stars.
Mr. Swartz by Jogwalkorrun
I find walkmeter to be a double edge sword. In early stages of training the systems is too difficult to understand all the option available. Then, once you get familiar you find out how useless this technology can be. In order for a runner or athlete to improve they need reliable and dependable data. Walkmeter provides neither.
Without alerting user Walkmeter just expired. So, tracking data is interrupted. This confirms the company just wants your money. Plus, no one to talk to. I’ve had Walkmeter for several years. Conclusion: not accurate, no training, sensitive and affected but power lines, etc. bottom line is: a marathon runner explained to me. A runner knows and don’t need to be told they’re doing right or wrong.
HATE the new layout and color scheme. by LMMWLIN
I have been using this app since 2015. It is t the most accurate, but close enough. I HATE the new color scheme. I can’t see it when I’m walking. Everything’s is so cluttered. It looks like a 5 year old put it together. Can you still make the cleaner, but older ... easier to read, older layout available?
There are better apps by BSchmidter
This app takes longer to load than most other apps with similar features. I've had it for a few hours, and it has crashed twice, ironically asking me if I want to sign up for the elite version on reboot. The ”lap” feature seems to even be not available in the free version.
Wrong mileage by Meb3v
I walk the same path and the mileage varies depending on how fast I am walking.
Walker by n0vaprime
Sorry, I just can’t recommend this app. I e lost count of the time when using it that it stopped tracking my walk. Hard to enjoy you walk when you have to constantly keep your eye this app.
Amazing App! by dannyt2
Wish I could give it 10 stars. With the elite upgrade you can customize this app to do just about anything. Do yourself a favor and upgrade if you haven't done to it yet. If you are serious about losing weight or just getting in better shape, it will be the best $ you've ever spent. I've been using it for walking for several months now and can't imagine walking with out it. Get you a heart rate monitor that syncs with the app and you are all set. This app is done right! Keep up the good work developers and thank you!
P.S. Because it uses the satellite gps data from your iPhone for location, your phone needs a clear view of the sky for Walkmeter to be accurate. As they recommend it works best when the phone is in an armband or a running belt vs in your pocket.
Walkmeter by Sportster5
Used to be good but now way too many ads, some of which will not close unless you exit ap. Too expensive for no ads.
Great app but... by Vvvuu
This app is great - it tracks your distance and speed, and shows where you’ve gone on the map. The only frustrating thing is that when you open the app it takes forever to start as you have have to wait for the advertisement to load.
I Love It by Lynn113
I’ve used this App for a couple of years within the Elite Function. I have never had any problems with this App or my subscription to Elite. It’s so easy to use and the information tracked helps keep you motivated. I enjoy using it whenever I walk etc. I truly endorse this App.
Unable to cancel by 31Babs
I have been attempting to cancel my elite subscription and cannot. I have contacted the company numerous times as instructed and have had no response. I will have to contest with my credit card company. Very unhappy and do not recommend for this reason
Ads by supersix1
What’s up with the ads.. this is not a free app. Why am I seeing ads now
Great app. by DavidMBrown
This is one of the few apps I've given five stars. It has lots of functions, and is highly configurable. The UI is very pleasant and effective.
I enjoy this app by Frequentwalker
I’m thrilled with my Walkmeter app. It is easy to use and gives me the information I need and tracks the data that I can use to maintain good health .
Walkmeter by HURD ARCHIVES
Accurate and easy to use. Have not figured it all out yet, kind of clumsy when it comes to the instructional part of the app. Fortunately it is easy enough to use right after downloading. Done 3 races now and have not had a single problem. The one thing that would put this app in a league of its own, is to allow for real time tracking for friends and family. Update are great. But not the same. Allowing user to pre-draw the route so others can follow, but it also allows user to visualize the route and know what is up ahead including hills and big turns. Love the app.
Cannot record many exercise types by Dutchman1123
Very few exercises can be recorded even though the ad says that all can. No help at the website either.
Ridiculous by msmerrylegs
The free app did nothing, so I paid for the Elite. It’s ridiculous. This continues to add distance even when I’m standing still. It is useless.
Live saver .. by The master builder
I love this App..! Not just to help me to stay fit, but also helped me to find my car after along walk in a neighborhood ..👍😀
Generally good by Walker888888
I have only one complaint. The app regularly pops up with a request that I turn on Background App Refresh in Settings. However if I go to Settings to do that, that option is not available to me, so I'm stuck with the regular popups.
App will not allow to upgrade by s_brem
I have had the Walkmeter app for several years. When it came time to renew my
elite subscription this year, the app stalls and will not allow me to follow through with the purchase.
Walkmeter needs to fix this!
Support by Jct1946
I have the Elite version of this app and it handles all I need it to do, walk bike. I recently needed some help. Emailed Support and within 8 hours had my answer.
Rgrice1947 by Rgrice1947
The reliability and accuracy of this app is seriously in question! Sometimes it makes sense. Other times, on the map it shows me making loops or detours that I did not take. When compared to another device I have, it show me walking as much as2 times what I actually walked. It’s a nice set up but for accuracy it is very poor.
What happened ? by Swails, Ric
My daughter and walked the same trail and we both have Elite but in the mist of our walk mine quit and said it was because I had used another app which I had not. If my daughters had not kept working we would have got lost.
I rate this a 0 by kem069
I can’t even figure out if it has a pedometer. Which is what I wanted. I hate this app and want a refund
It WAS Great, until the morons messed with it, by my printer
Why do these AH’s find it necessary to change something that worked perfectly?
Overestimating distance by Tompetty212
This app was great until the last update. Now, the stopwatch is fine but it keeps severely overestimating your distance. It seems to think you go about 1.5 miles for every 1 real mile now. This also makes it overestimate your speed a lot.
Great app by SML Dog Walker
I love this app, and the maps and all the data they provide! And customer service is stellar! Very quick response and solved all my issues. Thanks, Fran!
Paths are noisy and therefore too long by GrantW3
The idea behind this app is great, and I like the interface as well. Unfortunately the paths it records are often *very* inaccurate and zig-zaggy and so wind up being too long, sometimes by 50% or more. This makes the app pretty much useless for me, despite my wanting to like it.
Today, for example, I recorded over 3 miles for what I know to be a two-mile walk. Looking at the map, I could see why: where I had actually walked a straight-line path, the map showed numerous spurious loops and switchbacks. My supposed pace during this segment was 6 minutes/mile.
This may be due to inherent noisiness in the location information provided by the iPhone. If so, the solution would be to use much longer time intervals (e.g., 1-2 minutes) between samples. This would ensure that the actual distance walked between samples is relatively large compared to the inevitable slop in the location info.
Not very accurate at all. by grpsky
I do a morning walk with my dog. Just long enough for everything to shake loose, so to speak. I have one route that Walkmeter says is 1.85 miles. I’m thinking that I’m going to get buff walking 1.85 miles. Apparently NOT! One day I tried another walking app. Same route but only 1.1 miles. So I drove it with my vehicle with the digital odometer. Still only 1.1 miles. Yet every day I use Walkmeter my route is 1.85 miles.
Not getting as buff as I thought.☹️
Not accurate by kieranicole3
So, I don’t usually do reviews but since I’ve had such a difficult time with knowing the distance that I walk, I thought I’d share my experience with whoever is reading this.
So, I started power walking the same paths daily. I noticed about a month ago that the faster I would walk the same exact path, it would record less the amount of distance. I was noticing walking about 2 miles that I would get 1.6, 1.85, 2.2 and so on. I kinda didn’t think to much in to it. However on Monday (today is Wednesday) I forgot to turn my walking app until approx .5 mile in and my total distance was 3.08 The following day (Tuesday) I turned it on right as I hopped out of my car. My total distance that day was 2.88 miles, a lot less then mondays distance. So, I downloaded run keeper and today it came out to 3.4miles and proves that this app is not accurate for some reason.
Maybe they need to update it because it should go by gps. Other then that I think the set up of the app is wonderful. It’s easy to use and haven’t had any issues having it run in the background as I play music, get on the internet, or text. Good app, just not accurate and I will be using run keeper from now on.
