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
Late response by AniksNGF
when i try to use this app then it takes few time to open. please fix it.
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.
Good, but could use some improvements by annie_g
I paid for the Elite level of this app for one main reason - to be able to start and stop the timer from my Apple Watch. And of course to be able to glance at the elapsed time while walking. Starting and stopping the app from my watch works about 75% of the time, but there are too many times I have to pull my phone out. I make sure to open the app on my phone before I leave the house, but sometimes it still tells me to open it. Also, sometimes the info doesn’t transfer correctly to the Health and Activity apps.
Otherwise, the app has way more info than I probably need, but I like seeing the distance, time, and map of each walk. So if there was better communication between the watch app and iPhone app I would give it 5 stars.
Doesn’t take advantage of series 3 watch by C'mon Johnny
The series 3 and series 2 with gps were designed to leave your phone at home, can’t leave the phone home with this app, seriously?
My best walking meter by Andrew MMOS
The app was amazing, I loved it. It had a lot of things. This is the best app I've ever downloaded.
Walkmeter is Awesome by Scuba_Sensei
I love Walkmeter! My wife & I walk every morning and Walkmeter is our companion, keeping us on our pace and reporting the results. Even better, I had an issue seeing the app on my iPhone after upgrading to a new iPhone X and Support was incredible, even though we do not subscribe to their Elite enhancement. It is an amazing program and the developer, Advio, is most impressive!
Beware of "indoors" setting! by markdj
This is a great app with myriad settings and features but I was burned recently when I inadvertently switched to indoors on my watch. The only functionality remaining was stopwatch! Support was prompt (see below) in helping me figure out why, but the controls could be clearer and grouped more appropriately. Otherwise - superb!
The indoors setting is used when working out on a treadmill or indoor track where GPS is not available. In that case, you would need to also enabled step counting and measuring your distance from steps (rather than GPS). When you turn Indoors on in our iPhone app it will give you a warning that it is only intended for outdoor workouts.
Sorry that wasn't clearer when you selected it on your watch.
Good and Bad by Morey54
I have used this app for around 3 years. I love that it has so much to offer. My favorite is pacing. But, there are some problem areas. If I forget to stop it and get in the car, it will still continue on adding up the miles! Also, if I get a phone call it will stop, and it routinely stops for no apparent reason, so I have to keep checking it to make sure it is still on.
Does not work with Apple Watch 3 alone. by Msjudithlynn
I bought the Elite version of this to use with my watch while I leave my phone at home. Doesn’t work without phone. This app is useless to me.
Best Walking/Running App Available by exoticbirdphotography
I am a baby boomer and my primary form of exercise is walking. I am quite computer literate, Jasmine but I am not big on social media. The Pedometer Ultimate GPS+ that I previously used is not supported by iOS 11 and the app has been removed from the iTunes store. I spent a fair bit of time researching a replacement, reviewing “best” lists on the web and app store reviews. After narrowing down the candidate list to a few, I downloaded those apps and tried them myself. I have an iPhone 7 and the original Apple Watch.
Walkmeter is far and away the best pedometer app currently available. It has a rich feature set that is superior to anything else out there. It works both outdoors and indoors. Step length is automatically determined by the GPS (Step length is required for indoor walking where GPS is not available). Alternatively step length can be manually entered. Customizable voice prompts give updates during the workout.
• Excellent feature set with unbelievable level of customization
• Apple watch integration
• Fantastic customer support – Support is by email only, but my many inquiries as I was learning to use Walkmeter were answered in about 24 hours with complete instructions to accomplish what I was attempting to do.
• High price – Walkmeter is free, but the Elite in app purchase was important to me to unlock the features I wanted and is highly recommended. This costs $10/year, making Walkmeter one of the most expensive, if not the most expensive, pedometer apps out there. If you want steak, don’t expect hamburger prices.
• No user manual – There is built in help, which is useful but limited. All the features scream for a user manual. Without it, I found myself trying a lot of things by trial and error or contacting customer support.
I debated whether to give this app 4 or 5 stars. The price is reasonable given the feature set and the development effort required. The lack of a manual is a real shortcoming and caused me to settle on 4 stars. When a manual becomes available, I will up my rating to 5 stars. That being said, Walkmeter is the best app of its kind out there and well worth considering. For the record, other than being a user, I have no connection to Abvio.
Wonderful for walkers/runners. Great app by daschles
I'm really happy. I started using as a walker;
Now I use as a runner. I get great data and the app is very sophisticated - it keeps track of stop times which is a great feature. The only thing I wish it had was a library of walk/runs for different areas. But I've now been a happy user for nearly three years as a paying elite member and though I've tried others I'm loyal to this. Great features. Great implementation. Also great and fast customer support whenever I’ve had a question or issue.
Thoroughly annoyed😡 by Zatannya
I’d been using the free version of this app for the longest, but decided to pay for it recently since I’ve been walking more. The stopwatch still stops at the most inopportune times on my walk. This morning I walked 30 minutes only to check my time toward the end & see it had only been tracking the first 5 minutes of my walk. I am livid...that was my first time walking that route & now I have no time to compare it to😡Why am I paying if this is the same issue I had with the free version. I will NOT be renewing.
Great So Far by Frankhj
I have only used it twice, but it has a lot of great features in the free with advertising version. The advertising is not overwhelming & I see no need in my case to get the subscription. To top it off I had some questions on saving routes and got email replies on a Saturday!!
Don't be misled by the app title by ssteiner
It's name suggests it's just for "walking". But I do ultra-marathons and average 200 miles a month. This app, despite its name, offers awesome detail for the hardcore runner. I've had this app for over three years and swear by it. It's phone based and thus not dependent on a limited battery GPS watch. It provides extremely accurate distance measurement and records data at several levels - from cadence to pace to speed in mph to elevation gain and more. The distance numbers are consistently slightly under my Garmin measurements. The same is true with the elevation estimates. Despite this, I'm a huge fan of this app.
What Happened to the Map? by Pd739
Just recently I found this is no longer displaying the map on Facebook shares, just a big logo with a few stats. Even on old walked where it used to show the map, now only shows the logo. What gives? I liked having the map there.
Just noticed the map still shows on the Facebook app, but not on the Facebook web site (and it did until recently).
Full service app by SB70
This app has worked great for me over the years and continues to do so with the current upgrade. It is truly a great app.
Stops itself by Tmrphy
WalkMeter had been deleted because another app stopped it again.
No map details by Skater90210
There are no longer map details (roads and streets) on the map, and the route traveled is simply the straight line between the starting point and current location. This app is a piece of junk.
Not worth yearly fee by Mauijoe
Further review update:
App stopped working for me once while in the Elite free period. Was tracking a long 5 hr drive. It appears to have stopped working when I dropped out of cell tower coverage. No audible signal no restart once cell signal reestablished.
Glad I did not pay for Elite!
Having to pay a yearly fee is just not worth the upgrade. Sucker you in with free 30 day Elite then say they need you to pay for continuous updating. Try expanding your market instead of ripping people off under guise of continuous app improvement. Would pay 9.99 for lifetime access to updates. Not a yearly fee.
I liked the app because was able to switch modes walk bike drive.
Don't use the app 24/7 so having an app on phone is convenience, having to pay a yearly fee is crap.
Needs work by 120waterhead
I kept getting a memory low message on my phone while the app was tracking.
I couldn't figure how to fix that.
Great App! by EAAwht7
I LOVE the depth of details this app has! I have a number of watchs and My Series 2 watch work wonderfully with the watch but I tried my Series 1 today and it had communication issues when I tried to run a different app on my phone?
I'm guessing it is a Apple issue as I can tell the Developer is trying hard!!!
Not bad but... by casandrz
It's a decent app and I like the way it tracks. However, i was very annoyed to find out that after I paid for the app, now it wants me to subscribe for $10/year in order to do anything except track my stesp and show me where I walked. There are free apps that will do this. Had I realized, I never would have bothered to purchase this app. Exactly what did I pay for ?
Doesn't work by Curt67
One of the most frustrating experiences I've had with an app in a while. Doesn't work on Apple Watch which was the primary reason I got it. (Walking and running without having to take my phone). Not an app I'd recommend.
Superb Offline Tracker by Nomadram
Absolutely magical the way it can keep track your route when offline.
Suddenly get corrupted by Boys1718
Works fine for a while then stopwatch stops counting and goes back to 2 seconds. Have to delete and reinstall.
Needs work by Nursefire
A pretty good app. However, it needs to be up front to run. I walk 8 to 10 miles a day. If I get a call a text message or even just hit the home button it stops tracking. When I go to look it tells me another afternoon open or if it the home button therefore this is been shut off this needs to be addressed.
Do this and I'll give you five stars. Currently I'm looking to replace this app
Great app! by Tango!
For any of your walking, jogging and running needs this is the perfect app. I use it twice a week and it keeps all records on a calendar with stats, distance and a gps map of the route I went. I recommend it.
Buggy by scottfmcc
Too slow to respond. Won't always reset. Locks up too often. GPS won't always work for Pace even when phone indicates a strong signal. Needs work.
