Walking Quest – Step Into Adventure - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Wysiwyg Wizards has had it's doors open for a little over a year now. Walking Quest is our second app.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

There's only two of us, and we have a lot to learn.

Wysiwyg Wizards is just two people from the UK making fun apps.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Fun exercise apps are all good in some way.

How long have you been working on this app?

Over 6 months.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Walking is the most accessible exercise - so we're trying to make it as fun as possible!

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

There are other apps that aim to make fitness fun, by rewarding you for exercising. But two things set Walking Quest apart. Firstly; the rewards with Walking Quest are truely worth the steps. We have a library of uniquely crafted stories that range from pirate adventures that have you searching for buried treasure to period dramas that allow you to step back in time to the Victorian era. Every step brings you closer to unlocking the next part of your chosen story, so every walk becomes an adventure. Secondly, in Walking Quest, it's not about how far or fast you can go; it's about getting up and doing what's right for you. Adjustable distances and our special Read On The Go Mode open up Walking Quest to people who don't like high impact exercise, don't have very much time or have access disabilities. However, our Epic Distance Walks, which let you test your mettle against fantasy maps, mean that enthusiastic walkers will never run out of adventures.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We're already working on adding audio to the stories, so you can listen to them as you walk. Adding more stories to our library is also a high priority.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Enjoy it! Share it if you really enjoy it, and if you have any feedback suggestions contact us.
