Would you like a walking app developed for your business, town, charity or event?
We are a team of mobile experts, lovers of the outdoors and passionate about creating the best mobile walking apps and guides available. Our development, engineering and marketing pedigree has been gained from leading organisations including Apple, Microsoft and Vodafone. If you are interested in having your very own walking app, it’s as simple as this…
We research the walks for you
We create your branded walking app
We submit everything to the App Stores
You pay an annual fee with no upfront costs
We like to make things easy. We can find and research your walks or if you have routes in mind already, you can simply provide us with the walk descriptions, images and walking route information. This could include printed maps with the walking routes marked on them, GPS files or we can help you map the walk. If you don’t have the walks already mapped, we can map them for you.
Your walking app will allow people to use their mobile phone to see where they are on the map, their direction and the route to follow. It even works without a network connection which is great for remote areas with no phone signal. We can also bolt on additional functionality if required.
Once your walking app is ready, we can submit it to either your App Store account or ours and we will take care of all the ongoing maintenance and support. The App Stores and platforms are always evolving and we will make sure that your walking app keeps up to date with any changes.
How much does it cost?
To have your own walking app created, it can cost from as little as £3,000 per year. The price depends on how many walks you require and includes all set up, management and ongoing maintenance.
A branded app can be provided to users as a free walking app or you have the option to generate revenue through in-app purchases or subscriptions.
