To perform some form of daily exercise instead of none at all, have a major impact on health.
The problem is often motivation or lack of a trigging signal.

Do You need that little extra push to perform some basic physical training?
If Yes, then this App can really help You.
START COLLECTING GOLD STARS BY TAKING A DAILY WALK!

Let us introduce You to Bobby, Your little personal trainer that will make his best to make You start taking a daily walk.
If You one day happen to forget it, Bobby will notify You with an encouraging message and he will also place a red number on the App Icon.
You will be reminded with a message only once a day at a configurable time.
You will be reminded even if the App isn't running!

YOU HAVE TO TAKE A DAILY WALK TO AVOID THE REMINDER MESSAGES AND THE IRRITATING RED NUMBER ON THE APP ICON.


By default the initial goal for You is to walk 1 km/ml per day.
(NOTE: Unit in either US miles or km is configurable)
If You fulfill this goal, You earn a Gold Star.
If You walk 2 km or ml, You earn a second Gold Star and You are one day ahead of schedule and You can skip the next days walk.
Transportations above a certain speed is not allowed, so it is not possible to record a car trip to earn the Gold Star.

If You rather prefer jogging or cycling, just change the daily distance and You are on.
