We want to hear from you!

Thanks for all your continual feedback and great ideas.

I suggest you ...

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Points of interest.

    As the app is tracking your route, could it not add points of interest within 500mtrs or possible places to visit within 1km of your current location. In this way you may get people to walk further and everyone wins.

    • It would be great if the explanation of the Cause itself is translated in English as well.

      There are a lot of foreigners who would like to contribute to some of the causes, however, their description and title are not available in English.
      The functionalities of the website itself are bilingual - BG and ENG, but this is not valid for the causes.
      A brief summary in English will be highly appreciated ;)

        We’re considering supporting two languages for each administered resource – a local one (based on where the cause is located for example) and English translation (for foreign users).

      • Show a graph for causes progress.

        It will be nice if people could see a graph for cause progress. This way anyone could see if the cause will finish on time (if the ratio is kept) and what is the daily activity of the users.

        • Allow the Windows Phone app to run in the background

          As the title suggests. It would be great to enable the windows phone app to run in the background. This would give me the chance to take pictures during the walk and much more.

            This feature is planned for an upcoming Windows Phone app release. Unfortunately, it’s not supported on Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 7.5 due to limitations of the operating system.

          • Protect the environment - make more people walk

            I think that one of the best causes is to protect the environment. It will be great if we can make more people walk. So consider a feature for business to enable companies to give bonuses to their employs for points they gain in Walk2Help and then may be companies can use accumulated points to get some tax benefits. This way everyone wins

              It’s a really good idea to feed business with information about their employees activities (in case their employees are willing to share it, of course) but this would require creating corporate accounts and associating users with them. But we will seriously consider such functionality.
              Unfortunately, negotiating tax benefits for companies with local governments would be nearly impossible and we will most probably not do it.

            • better the way calories are counted

              You need to know both my height and weight in order to calculate the calories I burn, this is essential.

                We’ll be able to do so, as soon as we add support for height and weight measurements in your profile. Then we’ll be able to calculate your current BMI and BMR.

              • App for "Symbian"

                Make application for "Symbian", and many people use such a platform.

                  • Sharing message on FB and Twitter

                    About FB and Twitter - Is it possible to add on the share message the word "to help" - "walked 10.44 km to help for Clothes and shoes" and not "walked 10.44 km for Clothes and shoes" as it is now...looks like I need and ask for clothes and shoes and not doing it for charity. Good luck!

                    • Social Sharing

                      Implement a functionality to share on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, that I walked certain km and I have uploaded/donated my point to a certain cause. This is a great way to make the application popular and more people will walk to help the causes.
                      Good luck it is a great idea!

                            • Add an option for other activities, such as running or cycling

                              It would be great if there was an option to choose an activity, such as running or cycling in addition to plain walking. :)
                              I tried using the app while cycling and was able to donate 1000 points in one run, however, the app did not calculate the distance properly. I cycled about 30km, but the app only submitted 10.

                                • Put in pedometer capabilities

                                  Use the accelerometer as a pedometer to get an approximate measure of the number of steps in each walk. Could be fun and also could provide some useful information (cf. Stephen Wolfram's project on collecting data on himself)
