Anyone fancy a bit of running? Or cycling….or even walking? Basically Samsung have released an app ready for the olympics! ITS A FANTASTIC IDEA! The basic premise is for every mile you complete, Samsung will donate £1 to charity! HOW AWESOME IS THAT!?
You use the app to create your virtual runner (you put your face on another body) and they you’re ready to go! You can join teams to raise even more money and also keep a track of your stats too! A great way to improve your fitness
So far I’ve tested the app out using my Samsung Galaxy Note and i’ve done a little running with it, cycling and I even used it while walking around Birmingham shopping for shoes, it tracks your progress via the gps in your phone. It’s very easy to wrack up the miles and it’s for such a good cause!
Once signed up you can also expect to see your face on Samsung’s Olympic Torch Relay caravan too….this is travelling all the way around the country and the app has a useful section telling you where you’ll be able to spot your face!
Anyway I’ve attached some pictures of the app, and if you have any more questions get in touch! I’m going to get running and raising some money, you should too!
The app is currently available for download on the Google Play store, and will be available on IOS soon.
