Comments from beta users
"This App is officially FUN!" - beta user
"... Wow! What a motivating app. I have been trying to get regular exercise and Walk With Friends! has made it so much easier! When my friends get ahead of me on the trail, I rush to catch up and pass them! Thanks to this app, I have lost 5 lbs and attribute this loss to Walk With Friends! A 5 star program!" - beta user
I created 5 Routes in Dublin, each starting a day after the previous route. I called it A Pub Crawl. I invited lots of beta users and we all had great fun with it. - Developer of App

Virtually walk anywhere, including on an active volcano in Hawaii.
Here is an example:
* Set route from Hollywood, CA to Long Beach, CA , which is a 27.93 mile route.
* Invite friends to walk with you.
* Anywhere you walk moves your map pin along the route.
* Track both your progress and your friends progress along the route.
* Select and save a default map pin color for all routes or let the App select a random color.
* The App does not need to be running for it to keep track of your progress. It reads the data from Apples motion chip as far back as seven days.
The Walk With Friends! App uses Apple's pedometer information to track every step and mile you walk with your iPhone and adds those miles to EVERY route you have created or accepted from a friend.
The App also shows steps and miles walked during the current day.
It shows the number of floors ascended on all modern iPhones
iCloud is required to share data with friends.
You can create any route in the world that Apple Maps servers cover.
The Walk With Friends! App can find walking routes or driving routes based on your selection. If the App cannot find your requested route, it will default to any route as defined by Apple Maps servers.
