Unlike most exercise tracking apps, Moves automatically calculates your steps and distance without having to press “start” or “begin”. I had downloaded Moves days before I looked at it, and when I opened it, I was able to see all the places I had been since I downloaded it, how many steps I took each day. Moves differentiates between transportation (driving) and walking, so when I commuted to work, I was able to see that I drove to the train station, walked to my subway, walked to work and then took the train home.
It’s interesting to be informed of how much walking you are doing on a daily basis and this could be helpful in terms of weight loss as well. The drawback to Moves, though, is that its not completely accurate, but it does give you a good idea of your distance traveled and a general number of steps taken daily.
