The Walking Stars App
The Walking Stars App is free to all registered participants and keeps our walkers safely united while staying apart.
Once the app launches in November, participants will be sent a unique ticket code to connect the app with their fundraising page. Walking Stars can download it from either Google Play or the App Store.
If you haven’t yet, register for Walking Stars today. You will then receive your unique ticket code via email.
Accessing the App
1. First, make sure you have registered for Walking Stars. This year, registration is free!
3. Register an account for the app and input your unique access code – this will be sent to all registered participants by email once the app launches in November – to link your Walking Stars fundraising page to the app.
Training with the Walking Stars App
You can use the Walking Stars app to log your training kms and view your team’s training leaderboard. Share your training walks with friends and family to help inspire donations.
You can also share photos from your training using the fun augmented reality face filter you will unlock once you finish your first training session!
See how many kms you can clock up between now and 3 December.
To log a training session, open the app and press ‘Start’ in the ‘Walk’ tab. The phone can be locked and put in your pocket during the walk, but you must ensure your location settings for the app are ON and set to ‘always allow’. Press the stop button when you are finished – that’s it!
Using the app on Event Weekend
If you start a walk between the 4-6 December, the 21km challenge will automatically begin.
If you want to complete the 21km challenge over several walks – press the ‘Stop’ button after you’ve completed each walk – and ‘Start’ again at the beginning of your next one. When you have reached 21km, your activity will automatically end.
Throughout the 21km journey, you’ll reach milestones in the app and unlock different augmented reality face filters as you walk further. Plus, you’ll be able to see progress for yourself, your team and others taking part in the feed and leaderboards.
Receive a personalised, augmented reality medal when you complete the challenge. You’ll be able to share your medal with fellow Walking Stars, friends and family.
