NOTE on Scary Tracking Permission.
On Android 10 and above the application asks for permission to track you in the
background. No we are not mining your phone for personal data. Without the permission the phone will stop tracking when you lock the screen or use a different application. We use Firebase/Crashlytics to track general problems on
the phones. We don't keep or retain any personal data ( it stays on your phone ).
If you have problems or questions please tap the help/feedback on the home screen and send a message. Warning, depending on my work load it may take a couple of days to get a reply.
Simply Walking is intended as a daily companion for the avid walker ( or Runner )
No Account or personal data required. Data resides strictly on your phone.
Download the application, tap the start button and begin walking. It is that simple.
Turning off the screen or locking the screen will NOT interrupt the walk.
