My friend Debbie is in love with this app. I am a treadmill sort of girl, especially this time of year in Texas! Debbie has been using the Map My Run app for about a month now, and she sends me a daily text message with a screen shot of her walk; showing the distance, time, route, and the amount of calories burned. Don’t let the name fool you, Map My Run works for walking too.
