If you don't fancy buying a wearable or investing in a phone with a fancy motion chip, then Moves might be for you. The activity tracking app sits in the background and learns your daily routine, presenting your movements as a timeline for later study. While it's already been downloaded 2.5 million times on iOS, it's launching on Android devices running 4.0 or above from today. It's available for the princely sum of nothing from Google Play, so there's really very little excuse not to at least give it a go.
Helsinki, Finland / London, UK, 19 September 2013, 9am PT/5pm BST – Moves, the physical activity tracking app for iPhone, today makes its way to Android. Android users will now have access to simple and beautifully designed Moves that has been downloaded over 2.5M times since launching in January.
"We believe Moves is the most popular activity tracker available as we're tracking over two billion steps every day," said Sampo Karjalainen, Designer & CEO, Moves. "It is very difficult to beat the price and convenience of having the activity tracker in your phone. You simply download the app and leave it to track your daily movements. There's no need to buy, charge, carry and sync one more device."
The key features of Moves include:
Tracks walking, cycling and running and when the user is in transit
Daily notification tells just how active the user has (or hasn't) been
Identifies locations users have visited and plots them as a daily storyline, e.g. work, Starbucks or the gym
No need to register or login – just download & start tracking
No need to start/stop tracking – Moves works in the background
Slick & beautifully designed UI
Karjalainen continues, "smartphones are a great platform for mainstream activity tracking. There are already over billion iOS and Android devices on the market. Thanks to their location technology and processing power, we can show routes taken, places visited, and recognize cycling – something that activity tracking wristbands can't do."
Moves launched recently it's own Connected Apps catalogue featuring apps and services built upon open Moves API. 20 services are currently live with more being added each week. The company plans to roll-out full support for Connected Apps on Android soon. Moves is available to download for free from Google Play (Android 4.0 or above) and Apple App Stores.
