Fitly

This App is great as it keeps everything simple.  A workout always needs to be kept simple as that way we are more likely to stick to it.

My favourite feature on the Fitly App which makes it stand out from other similar Apps is that it measures your effort level. This feature allows you to use a slider bar to select a walk, cycle or run and you can rate the level it felt and can monitor if the levels feel easier as you get fitter.

You can also use this feature to add in extra distances or simply increase your speed and, what’s more, this feature measures your average speed, the maximum distance travelled and calories burned.  

This feature is definitely the App’s strongest point and can be used to help boost your fitness levels. The additional GPS feature also means that wherever you are you can locate a great walk and know the exact distance without the fear of getting lost!

Another great feature built into this App is interactive social media. This allows you to create a walking event and invite your friends on social media to join you, which makes it a great tool for motivating yourself and others.

Summary: The unique feature on this App is that you can rate how hard every fitness session was, so this is a great App if you want to monitor how your walking fitness levels improve.

App rating: I would give this App 4.5 out of 5.
