Walking app. In today's guide, I'll tell you which ones are the best walking apps for all platforms and free (at least in its basic version).

The best app for walking

Adidas Running (Android / iOS / iPadOS)

First walking app what i suggest you try is Adidas Running, developed by Runtastic in collaboration with Adidas.

This is a solution that allows you to monitor your activity when doing various types of sports, from running to biking, and it can also be useful for keeping track of your walking walks.

It is available for free at Android and iOS / iPadOS, but access to some specific training plans and some additional features is reserved for users who subscribe to the Premium subscription, which starts at € 9.99 / month.

Endomondo (Android / iOS / iPadOS)

Another walking app that I suggest you consider is Endomondo. Compared to Adidas Running, which I told you about earlier, it is a somewhat less articulate app, also with regard to graphics.

However, this does not mean that it is less functional. In fact, it is able to function flawlessly for its intended purpose. It allows you to keep track of many activities, such as walking, displaying training time, speed, and much more.

To stop the walk, press the button break and make a long tap on the button parade. When the activity ends definitively, you will see a summary screen appear with all the statistics of the execution carried out.

RunKeeper (Android / iOS / iPadOS)

RunKeeper is a very popular application that has almost the same features as the solutions I have already mentioned. It allows you to track not only the relevant data during the walk, but also during the walk, the bike rides and many other activities.

It has a nice user interface, it is practical enough to use and it is free (but there is also a paid version, which costs 9,99 euros / month and differs from the free one by the possibility of obtaining very detailed statistics for training purposes) .
