What's New

Thanks for using Ground Miles! To make our app better for you, this is the latest release that we are bringing to the App Store. 

We’ve been very busy on this release and have listened carefully to all of the issues that you have reported to us and made a lot of improvements, so here’s what you guys need to know…

The big news in this release is that we’ve added Apple’s accurate tracking system to measure your steps and manage your battery life! No longer will Ground Miles drain your battery and we’ll be able to sync your steps for the last 7 days ,. We’ve also made activity tracking simpler by splitting activity into now just two segments; Walk & Run.

Along with this we’ve also addressed several other issues, including:

-Tackling issues around synchronisation so that your data is upload to the server on a more regular basis
-Fixing an issue that was seeing My Activity for Today being deleted
-No more errors when trying to join a group (remember you can only be a member of 4 groups at anyone time)
-Always calculating the Map My Goal target correctly
-Ensuring rounding issue for weekly goals are fixed
-Fixing the Heart Age Calculator crashing issues
-You can now login with your email and a complex but secure password that you will never forget because you’re super alert due to all of the walking you do

Every update of Ground Miles is designed to improve reliability and stability. As other new features become available in the future releases, we'll highlight those for you too.

We’d love to hear about your experiences with Ground Miles and what features you would love to see next. Why don’t you drop us a line at [email protected]

Earn badges
- Get walking to earn visible and surprise badges as you reach your goals (and burn calories!)
- New Ground Miles badges* are added regularly, including unique badges for the casual walker, the early morning riser, and those who walk in their local park. *Some badges require GPS

Walk together and stay social
- Join or create virtual walking groups with friends or family anywhere in the world and see your collective miles accumulate
- Share your badges and walking milestones with friends via social media including Facebook and Twitter

Tailor and monitor your walking goals
