Move is a free movement tracking app that records your activity on a day to day basis. I’ve seen other apps like this but the Move team are claiming a number of advantages over their competitors.
The app is designed to track your movement whatever method you are using to get around; it can tell if you’re running, cycling or walking. If you are moving on foot, it will even count the number of steps you are taking.
The app tracks your route as you travel and will even build up a story line of the day’s activity featuring click through maps to playback exactly where you have been. If you wish, all of the data can be uploaded to a free account for future reference.
But, watch out..
Whilst I have really been enjoying running this app, there is one big down side right now – battery life. Usage will vary between devices but on my Nexus 4 I do find a noticable drain on the battery whilst it is active. If you are already struggling to keep your phone charge through a whole day then you will unfortunately struggle to run Move. But do note the developers are working hard to improve this issue.
