App of the Week
The walk – fitness tracker and game
Published 13/02/2014 | 02:30
Do you find exercising boring or unstimulating? The Walk is an 'outside of the box' app that uses audio storytelling to add some colour to your walk – similar to 'Zombies, Run!'.
It boasts an impressive pedometer but, what sets the app apart from its rivals, is its quirkiness and gripping storylines that are fabricated for your benefit.
It may tell you that there has been a nuclear power explosion and that you hold with you the only package that can save the world and that it must be delivered promptly a certain distance away.
Slightly deluded? Yes, but at the same time completely inspired. Every trip to the shop or menial walk to work or school can instantly become a gripping adventure.
