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.
Walking app by Julescelt
I don’t mind the ads. However, to have the ad for the upgrade come up ‘literally’ every single time you post a walk or hike is seriously annoying. Enough.
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.
Now Flooded With Ads by Mailmon
Disappointing release as I had given it 5 stars for years. Now ads cover the screen when it starts, ads cover the timer screen. I could not find any setting to pay $0.99 to “remove ads.” So take a guess what I will be removing soon if this new policy isn’t rescinded? (No, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon or rocket scientist to figure that out, either.)
OpenStreetMap support by Richardf8
I just downloaded this and am looking forward to going elite. I am an iPod touch user and don’t always have networking available when I am out and about. I would go from 3 to 5 stars if I could use downloadable Open Street Map tiles with this app.
Bad bad by !&$bad app
Bad app. Works well on 1st walk but couldn’t start a second walk, only start a new lap on the first. 3rd time I tried, it opens some game with no way out.
Uses your personal info by Blindweaver
To even view this app, you are required to set up an account by which you must agree to let them use and share your personal info, and to let them subscribe you to email marketing lists. The agreement also mentions it is a paid subscription service, not free.
It’s got it all ! by Skibum2010
Capture multiple sports and activities measure your results and feel good about yourself !
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.
Love this App! by Sweet Pea and Love Bug's Mom
Well worth the price!
I’ve had this app for 6 years. Still love it and use it almost daily!
Just a stopwatch by CynInDC
The free version of this app is simply a stopwatch, not a tracker.
Great free App for running by Aeyesome
Before I found out they had a running app, I have been using this one for my runs and it works amazing. It tell you your pace throughout the whole run, your fastest/slowest pace, elevation, mileage, maps, and many more things by use of lists and charts. Easy to use and super helpful!
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 ???
Love this app! by Jim3054
This app is very easy to use, quite intuitive. It keeps an incredible amount of data which you can easily review within the app but it is also easy to export data to a spreadsheet. And it syncs with a number of other apps I use. I highly recommend Walkmeter.
Accuracy Problem by No Nickname needed 9
After the last update my app is no longer accurate. I’ve been walking the same route/area in my neighborhood for years and now the app tells me I walked 4 miles in 30 minutes. Today it said I walked 2.7 miles in 30 minutes. I walk fast but not that fast. My average in the past has been a 15 min mile, so I walk 2 miles in 30 minutes. Is anyone else having this problem?
Turns itself off after 5 minutes by Mitchoul
On its maiden voyage, this app shut it self off twice after five minutes. So I decommissioned it, took it off my device.
Video game - not a walking tracker by V1212121213
Every time I tried to use the app some game pops up instead. Not too sure what the deal is.
Worked great for a couple of days by Zoigal
Not sure what happened yesterday. I walked the same 2 mi track I have walked before. It shut off somewhere in the middle of my walk. Not sure why.
Newbie loves it! by Mark Crim
I’ve been using Walkmeter for about three weeks. So far, it’s been a joy to use. So many choices. All of them very useful.
This was a great app once by m-d-v
This was a great app once, now it’s the worst. because it’s hasn’t been updated to work with the latest version of the Apple ISO operating system. so now it does not work at all. I guess it’s too late to ask my money back.
Great ; NVM (UPDATE) by Brvnda
it’s a great app for calculating the distance you’re walking/the pace/ & the time.
UPDATE: So I was walking yesterday and I set everything
to reset, so it was calculating how much time I spent walking and I clicked to go onto a different app and next thing I know, I go back to walk-o-meter and it says i’ve been walking for 20 minutes for 0.00 miles, like how is that even possible? That kinda made me upset specifically because this use to be a great app, but might delete now.
Consistently inconsistent by sjussmee
Sadly, I had to replace this app with a different tracker app. My workouts were not able to be recorded due to "poor gps time". This is a problem that wasn't as frequent in the past, but so far I have not had one workout able to record. Otherwise I would have kept it and recommended to others. Hope it's resolved.
Wish it supported apple watch 3 by Jimpilot5
I used this app for all my workouts for a couple of years. It was perfect! But then I got an Apple watch 3 and found that this app didn't work without your phone. I got the watch so I could leave the phone at home so I had to find another app. Run keeper is my current choice
John by Zooluu
I wonder if you could make this app round up the miles above.5 and down below.4
Support by Camino Pilgrim
VERY impressive support team!!!
Very good customer service by Jrhartnett
Recently stated using this & had some issues on using some of the features, contacted their customer service & was very impressed with the prompt response, very helpful with clear instructions. Thank you Fran.
What happened? by Sweet Hog
This use to be a good app. Used it all the tine. Then all of a sudden the App wouldn’t open becuz the developer had not updated it to the latest OS. After months of this nonsense, the App now appears to be accessible, but after re-downloading it, the App only takes me to weather apps and game apps.
Inaccurate by BoneheadPST
What the title states
Useless by ByeByeAndroid
What a useless non user friendly app. Don’t even waste your time downloading it.
App works great, seems to add more minutes of activity to watch by jonahlee
App works great (as long as you don’t somehow turn on indoor mode which stops location tracking) and it seems to add more minutes of exercise to the apple watch activities vs using apple watch’s built in exercise tracker.
Recent update messed up GPS by kat30neu
I have the Elite version and have had NO problems until most recent update. Now my GPS signal doesn’t register well. And...U tried turning my phone off, then back on as suggested. I am unable to open the troubleshoot page for GPS trouble. I hope this is a temporary glitch, but I’m currently not a satisfied customer.
Today I am a VERY SATISFIED customer. Product support worked with me diligently to fix my problem. I am pleased to say everything is resolved. I am again a +5 star customer.
In the last 10 days or so, I again had problems with a poor GPS signal. Customer support reviewed every walk I took to find out where the problem was. It was finally determined that the GPS had stopped working on my phone. So, it wasn’t a Walkmeter problem at all, but rather a phone problem. Walkmeter suggested ways to approach how to get my phone fixed. I contacted my carrier, adjustments were made and my GPS was repaired. I am again registering accurate walks. PS—my map apps also are working now! I am a very satisfied customer. Walkmeter went beyond helpful to get me up and running.
Good by Abudaar
It is beautiful and useful
Why would anyone pay for this by Benny Sugg
There is no way I would pay a subscription for this app. Are people crazy? Well, probably.
The core of my workouts by NoCanSurf
In December 2017, I received a heart rate monitor as a gift, and decided to upgrade the app to the full paid mode, to take full advantage of the app. I happy I did. Integration of the heart rate monitor was the key feature I wanted, the announcement system was the biggest and best surprise.
The app does everything I could want, it tracks my hikes, records the miles, the climbs, my heart rate and feeds all the data back to me, it graphs, maps and charts.
I’ve tried a number of apps to follow my progress, from free to the fancy paid apps. None really work as well or provided the data I wanted.
The best feature I didn’t know I wanted is the voiced announcements, my phone tell me my heart rate every ten minutes and related information and every 1/2 tells my my distance and a few other keep pieces of data. This little feature is cool. While hiking I have the announcement come from the phone’s speaker, I keep in my camelpak (I don’t listen to music on the trails), while jogging it comes in over my Bluetooth headphones.
Disgusting by gunsmokeray
I tried to use the app and for my trouble was presented with a full page ad before I even started and then it wanted to send me notifications, nope not in this life. Deleted, gone done.
The best available by gszasz
After using three other pedometer programs I’ve now had Walkmeter for two years. It’s the best program I’ve used. The one feature I miss is that one of the other programs alerted you every time you completed a mile.
Really? by Noremak94
I'm not going to use an app that thinks there's more than two sexes.
Annoying app by JimInWhitePlains
I moved over to this app from Cyclemeter. The other app by this company,. Cycle meter started recording twice the mileage that I walked,so I look for a walking app. I found this one by the same company and tried it. It records twice the mileage of my walking. I work on a known 1/2 mile course and the app shows 1 mile for each loop. When I run both apps simultaneously they record the correct distance but separately each one records twice the distance. I’m using an iPhone X with the latest updates. Please fix this
Walkmeter by Gene Johnston
Lots of metrics sliced and diced many ways. All in all good app but I could never get heart rate data to work. Ended up switching to heartwatch app. It seemed to integrate with Apple Watch better.
Update: support answered quickly and got my Apple Watch talking to walkmeter with heart data. Updated this review to 5 stars.
