I really enjoy using the Moves App and it motivates me to do more steps. I only discovered the challenges recently but they really motivate me to do more steps and walk to uni instead of getting the bus! I've now realised how few steps I used to do before using the Moves App.

I’m typically not that active and always opt for driving places but the points based system has been a great motivator to walk instead of driving to places and get fresh air more often as I have something to walk towards!

The moves+ app has inspired me to stick at my goal of 10000 steps every day. I'm now on a 100 day streak!
