Move Quest app review: embark on a quest for fitness

Reviews

Introduction

If you’re losing motivation on your current fitness regime or you’re just starting out and aren’t sure where to begin then Move Quest for iPhone and iPad offers a few great ways of incentivizing and motivating you that you might not have previously considered.

I’ve seen a fair few apps in the Health & Fitness category of the App Store that attempt to essentially gamify the fitness experience by allowing you to ‘level up’ or gain some kind of in-app currency, but this one definitely brings something of value to the genre.

Your Fitness Quest Begins Here

Losing weight or simply staying fit and healthy in the long term is definitely quite an undertaking, and I really like the way the developer of this app has likened it to a quest as that’s often what it feels like to me at least!

The basic concept of this app is that you are tasked with completing quests in order to earn Movecoins, a kind of in-app points system, to unlock bonuses and various types of rewards.

GPS Integration

Move Quest is great for running, walking, and cycling as it works with your device’s integrated GPS to track your movements and take every little bit of physical activity into consideration.

I’m also very pleased to see that the developer has included integration with online services like MapMyFitness, RunKeeper, and FitBit as this will offer some valuable social networking features.

What’s more, you can connect this app with your Jawbone Up device, and if you don’t currently own one then you’ll find a link within the interface where you can purchase one.
