Walking has been featuring in lots of media lately. Whether it’s TV, magazines or newspapers, the benefits and joys of walking are being celebrated at every turn. And with all that coverage came a lovely surprise at the weekend, when iFootpath featured in the Saturday Telegraph’s Five of the Best Walking Apps…
On Saturday 14 January 2017, The Telegraph Saturday Supplement began with a double page spread all about walking. The article explains, ‘Walking could do more for your fitness levels than any other form of exercise. From Urban to Mindful, Rural to Commuter, we’ll show you how it’s done.’ The Telegraph reporter, Boudicca Fox-Leonard, goes on to explore the whole world of walking. There are interesting facts – did you know, for instance, that a recent study from the University of Cambridge found that a brisk 20-minute daily walk reduces an individual’s risk of early death by 25 per cent – plus personal stories, recommendations for gear and expert advice on walking techniques.
At the centre of the article are The Telegraph’s recommendations for Five of the Best Walking Apps. We’re thrilled that iFootpath is featured as one of these five, sitting happily alongside Walkmeter (a pedometer), Peak Scanner (a peak identifier), Hill Lists (for ticking off the hills you have climbed) and iBird (to help identify the birds you see and hear on your travels). We are very happy to be in such good company!
