Oh, this does look really interesting! I think I might give it a shot, I'm not exercising enough anyways.
The app's name is Zombies, Run! by the way, here is the Play Store link: [link]
and their site: [link]
It's live! [link]
Thanks for all your patience, everyone - it's been a long, long 24 hours for our amazing team here, and we've had to put up with a lot of slowness and problems with Google's servers, but we're finally live.
Raise the Gates!
EARLY MORNING UPDATE EDIT:
I grabbed a couple of hours sleep while we waited for Google's servers to do their thing. Currently it's 8am here in the UK, so I'm expecting to hear from the devs very soon about where we're up to and I'm optimistic about being able to give good news when I pop back in.
Hi everyone - Six to Start team member here. To clarify where we're up to:
We've been battling Google's servers for most of the day now trying to get the update to play nice. We're not quite there yet, but we're still working hard after a very, very long day.
We haven't given you an update about the situation this afternoon / evening as we've felt about an hour away from saying "it's live" for much of the past six to eight hours, and we thought that'd be preferable to saying "soon" every five minutes. Right now, I'm still hoping to say "it's live" very, very soon (I'm waiting to go to bed!).
I'm sorry this has been so frustrating for you all, but we're hopeful to have real news very soon.
Thanks again for staying with us throughout all this and being patient! I'll let you know what I know as soon as I know it.
Not sure about the weight loss side. But one app I used to use gamifies running which was super fun.
Zombies, run! might interest you. It simulates running away from zombies and has a surprising amount of depth to it. It works well with walking and jogging too, not just running.
Zombies, run! it's free!
Zombies, run! 5k training it costs $1.99
Good tips. I'm going to follow one of the tips tonight, about varying your training, as I've downloaded the Zombies, Run! app for my phone, which apparently motivates your running by narrating a zombie apocalypse through your headphones. Should be interesting :)
I'm still very much an amateur, but here are some other tips I would suggest...
Looks like they have the original and a new 5k trainer now.
Ah yes, Zombies Run!
Never personally tried it though, but I do wanna give it a look. Not exactly sure if I'd pay those amounts to get full access
Not sure if this would appeal to you, but i enjoy using Zombies, Run! It has a fitness tracker integrated as well as applying fun "minigames" and such.
You're a legacy user. You need to download and keep both apps, but only use the newer version.
Login with your old info and you should have access to everything except the newest season 4 content for free.
I remember playing some zombie games that used your GPS to determine if they got you. Was fun back in the day.
Edit: this isn't the game but it's similar. [link]
If it once was an exclusive, I'm happy to say it's not anymore!
I'll toss my support for the app as well. Was great when I was stuck inside on the elliptical because Minnesota winters are cold as hell!
Great! You might also want to visit /r/bodyweightfitness and try to do plenty of cardio. This app is great too: [link] . If you need any help make sure to PM me. Oh and i guarantee that you will feel better but unknowingly so. I guarantee that you will notice a difference! :D
Recently started doing 5km jogging sessions trough the woods to lose some weight and just get out of the house for a while. I keep PoGo running in my Pocket while listening to music and playing Zombies Run. It's pretty cool in case somebody's interested: [link]
It's like an interactive podcast story.
Zombies, Run is a fun app if you like a little undead motivation.
I also like Endomondo for keeping track of HR, time, and distance.
> I wonder how other app developers, if they would have access to Google Map features. Or only official Google Devs get access.
There's a few games that do similar things, like this.
I also found this from a $2 bundle on Bundle Stars, but it looks like it could use some polish.
It also kinda reminds me of Streets of Sim City for some reason.
Woops, two different games. It's this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sixtostart.zombiesrunclient&hl=en
Have you heard about "Zombies, run!"? I feel like it might make a difference for your running. Give it a try, it's awesome!
Here is the link in the Google Play store. Basically it's a zombie adventure story told in the 1st person, like you're one of the characters. You run missions for supplies, or to rescue people, or to find information that could potentially stop the zombie apocalypse. The story is really interesting, and it's easy to get so caught up in that that I don't realize that I'm passing my house for the 3rd time...
Everyone around here uses the loseit or MyFitnessPal apps for that sorta thing. You can also find TDEE calculators online (total daily energy expenditure). Zombie run is free [link]
hows the game? wanted to buy it two or three years ago, never came around to, though.
>So here I am, a Runner for Abel Township. Oh, I know I'm not the fastest Runner here, or the strongest. I'm not one of Sam's elites to be sent on special missions and daring rescues. I'm just a Runner.
>No, I'm more than that. I survived the world going mad. I survived the zombie apocalypse. I outran the grey horde that consumed so many others.
<em>Zombies! Run</em> confirmed
Playstore bot please
Here's the link
If you need something to get you outside still, give Zombies, Run! a try. iPhone link
I know it's not the same, but it's an excuse to stay active.
I don't really listen to music while running. The silence helps me clear my mind. I have been waiting until I can run a little longer (only just started and can't make it more than 10 minutes before having to rest) to try out Zombies, Run!
There's some interactive games you can play like Zombies, Run! that encourage exercise but still feel like you're playing a game. Might be a fun alternative.
I'm getting a new phone this week, so I need to try to remember how the remindme bot works...
RemindMe! 3 weeks "Zombies! Run! app [link] "
On the subject of health/fitness, nothing was more motivating to get me off my ass than Zombies, Run. It's free now too.
Reminds me a bit of Rick's (from Rick and Morty, god I love that show) philosophy to deal with existentialism "don't think about it". I think we all feel this way at some point or another, some of us more than others but we can get past it by having a constant state of improving little by little and always have something to look forward to. I also really like to contemplate how amazing even being alive is to begin with. That we're naturally occurring self-replicating bio-mechanical beings on a huge ball of dirt spinning through space. There's so much to see, do and consider about the nature of life.
I think you have the right idea overall to improve health. Set small achievable goals and work toward them and build toward overall life goals. If you're a bit down I'd suggest two thing. First, if you get a bit bored walking, maybe look to gameify it a bit with Zombies, Run! or Pokemon Go. Second, I find I'm happier if I have regular interaction with people that don't suck. Either good friends or part of some local group that shares local interests. Something like Meetup can help with that. Lastly if you're more than a little "in a dark place" emotionally, I'd suggest talking with a concealer to worth through whatever is getting you down. Also there's some amazing science behind micro-dosing on psychedelics and it's affect on your mood and outlook on life. Worth googling if it'll help.
Anyhow, good luck; life is frikken crazy for everyone but definitely full of worthwhile experiences.
Apparently it's even free right now on Google Play.
Well while you ladies are working on your fitness may I recommend my favorite running app Zombies, Run!
it comes in three flavors
Zombies Run (The Original) - in which you are Runner 5 and your runs collect food and supplies for your survival camp. Plus heavy story in your ears while you run.
Zombies, Run! 5k Training - Same thing but with 5K training.
The Walk - for those who want zombie action in their walk.
I used to do the original flavor and it's a lot of fun. If i wasn't at work 12 hours a day and had time to exercise I'd probably start it up again. I only got about half way through my season.
There are some, one interesting could be this one?
Never played it but this looks fun: [link]
Might wanna try /r/androidgaming too
Essaie peut-être une app comme Zombies Run
That reminds me, there is some game where you run from zombies. [link]
I never tried it since you must wear headphones. You get "chased" by zombies and collect supplies to build your base.
Title made me think you were using the Zombies! Run! app.
>Get ready for the run of your life. Join 2 million runners on an epic adventure!
>You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan - they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!
>Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. Every run becomes a mission where you’re the hero, with our immersive audio drama putting you at the centre of your very own zombie adventure story. While you run to the perfect mix of heart-pumping audio drama and pulse-pounding songs from your own playlist, you’ll collect supplies to grow your base back home. ...
>Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to rebuild your base from a few shivering survivors into a fortified beacon of civilization by collecting critical supplies and avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?
>....and there’s a deeper mystery to be uncovered as well. Play the first four missions for free and unlock one extra mission every week.
>UPGRADE TO PRO
Unlock all 200+ story missions immediately for unlimited play, plus Interval Training and Airdrop Mode. Pro is available for $3.99/month or $24.99/year. Your subscription will automatically renew. (Existing paid players will have access to a special discounted membership rate, plus free access to all game modes and S1-3 missions). ...
Saving the world not exciting enough? Activate Chases to kick things up a notch. When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up before they get too close. Can you escape every mob, or will you have to drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them? There’s only one way to find out.
>KEEP THE SURVIVORS ALIVE
Every time you run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine, batteries and food. Once you’re home, you can use them to build your very own post-apocalypse community. Do you strengthen your defences against the zombies, or build a new farm? Share the results with your friends and find out who can make the brightest future for humanity.
How about this?
Deym, tried Zombie, Run last night. As a Walking Dead fan, I enjoyed this one.
Not quite Pokémon:
Oh, and for anyone who is interested in running "Zombies, Run!" is a really good motivator

We're looking for a senior mobile developer, specialising in iOS or Android development – or both.
Our flagship apps – Zombies, Run! and The Walk – combine innovative real-world interaction and gameplay with captivating stories and design. In short, we make exercising fun. We want to find someone who can help us improve our existing apps and develop new features that extend their capabilities and reach.

Most importantly, it’ll be very important to manage complexity and technical debt with confidence while developing at a rapid pace. You’ll be joining two senior developers with experience in web/server and iOS and Android development.
While there is a lot of responsibility in the role, you will have an abundant amount of freedom in implementation and if wanted, a strong voice in the outcome of finished products that will roll into the arms of the product’s many fans.
This is a remote position; all of our developers are fully remote. As most of our staff are in Europe and Asia, ideally you would be based in those time zones. To support remote development, we fly all of our staff to regular Away Week meetups in the UK so we can get to know each other and plan face-to-face.
