Moves App: Effortless Movement Tracking with the iPhone

Wearables can be expensive, extraneous to carry and incapable of recognizing specific activities. Moves is trying to solve these issues with an app that creates a ‘story’ of your day using your movements. Moves is developed and run by ProtoGeo Oy, a global team of eight.

I took the app for a spin and was pleasantly surprised that it was able to accurately determine when I walked to the local grocery store, when I drove home from work and when I went for a quick jog (and for how long / how slowly). The app has two downsides – my phone has to be with me at all times and the app has to continuously run in the background, using modest battery. However, I love the story timeline of my movements (the design is simple yet fluid) and I can’t wait to use the app during vacations and trips. I measured my run with other fitness trackers and Moves turned out to be reasonably precise. The company noted on their website that they will be improving battery consumption levels and further refining the app, which I certainly look forward to.
