Our very own walking app, Go Jauntly is now available on the App store!
We’re so pleased to be able to officially announce that Go Jauntly is now available to download on the App Store in the UK. Hoorah!
A free community-based app, Go Jauntly invites you into a world of outdoor adventure. Find local walks created by the people who love and know them, create your own and share them with your friends and the Go Jauntly community.
NHS studies state that regular walking has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, strokes and some cancers. The Department of Health estimates that physical inactivity could be costing the UK economy up to £20 billion a year in healthcare, sickness absences and premature deaths. Macmillan Cancer Support says regular walking could prevent 37,000 deaths every year.
Confronted with statistics like these, we really wanted to create something that everyone could use every day, no matter where you live or how much time you can spare, whether it's a quick lunch break in the city or a long country weekend away.
As we live and work in London, which has an amazing 47% green space made up of more than 3,000 individual parks and two national nature reserves, it seemed sensible to start our adventure here. Our first version of Go Jauntly is London based, but don't worry – that doesn't mean you can't get involved if you're not in the capital! In fact, it's quite the opposite. We want to grow the Go Jauntly community to every nook and every cranny of, well, everywhere! So no matter where you are in the UK, download the app, add your own walks and spread the happiness outdoors.
We hope that you love the Go Jauntly app as much as us. Please do let us know what you think, as we are still in a Public Beta and we’d love to hear your feedback as we work to improve the app (and bring it to other places around the world).
Love from Steve Johnson, Co-founder and Chief Experience Officer.
