At Human, we believe the best way to improve your daily activity is by understanding it. So everything we do is designed to help you learn, improve upon, and feel good about your activity levels.

** Best of App Store 2014 **

Most fitness apps count your steps, rather than the minutes you move. When you’re on your way to meet a friend you say, “See you in 20 minutes” not “See you in 20 steps.” Why should your favorite tracker be any different?

With Human, we built an app that speaks your language. Automatically track your walks, runs, and bike rides as you move throughout your day.

Human helps you answer the question, “Am I doing enough?” With Pulse, get a sense for how much your city moves and compare your activity levels to people like you. See how you stack up to people nearby, and rise up the rankings that are most relevant to you.

30 minutes of daily activity are the best form of preventive medicine. Every minute you spend walking, running or biking throughout the day counts towards your goal on Human. It's never been this easy to stay motivated along the way, every day.

Sync your walking, running and cycling activities to iOS Health to get a complete overview and use your activity data with other apps.

Tracking your day on an iPhone 5S, 6, 6S or 6SE? Make sure to enable "Fitness Tracking" in iOS Settings / Privacy to track your activity.

Continued use of location services running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Human is optimized to use minimal power and minimize the impact on your battery life. In most cases you should be able to easily get through the day, but results may vary based on network conditions and daily usage. We recommend to charge your phone at night or during periods of inactivity.

We store your data safely on our servers. You can request a full copy of all your data within the app. We will delete all your account and all your data on request.

One of my favorite apps been using it 4 years and cant live without. Continues to help me keep on track and its a nice positive app not pushy or complicated.
brad.sweatt on 6/20/2018
An amazing app at automatically tracking my bike ride commutes. Never have to worry about starting a workout or ride in an app.
Love this app
MrsE959 on 6/1/2018
It does what I need it to do when i need it to. Syncs with my health app. And I love the motivational and inspirational comments it gives me. Great app.
Not practical or helpful
Kitbee on 5/31/2018
This doesn’t work at all like a fitness tracker. Useless to me.
Love the app.
It does what you need it to do, it shows a map of where you are, tracks all sorts of things and links to your health app on IPhone. The only thing I wish it did on it's own was calories, if you have it linked to the health app it'll do that but it would be nice to have it at a glance. And maybe add altitude! Can you tell I hike? Also they sent an email that convinced me to leave a review and it seems they actually care about the folks that use the app. 4/5 only because of not having calories at a glance! 😃
Was great but hasn’t worked correctly for months
vlopez00 on 5/13/2018
Loved the app but it doesn’t track my activities like before plus when I click on City or Nearby on my watch it glitches and kicks me off.
Single swiss on 5/13/2018
I thought I’d try this app again hoping they had improved the algorithm. Unfortunately it still has huge gaps - it loses kilometres of my ride and there’s no way to edit the errors. Just this morning it caught less than half a 17km ride and even part of my dog walking before hand. This is exactly the reason I stopped using it for a year - especially annoying is when it would switch out huge distances for ‘transport ‘ when I was riding. I just don’t get while this is so difficult. I don’t pay for he app because it’s too expensive and I’m not addicted to tracking AND why would I pay for something so inaccurate??
Can’t tell the difference between running and walking
Ignatius_J_Reilly on 5/11/2018
I’m a beginning runner, and not very fast, but I know for a fact that I was running at a pace faster than walking. This app registered it all as walking. Deleted.
Got me moving
Mkmdn on 5/8/2018
Love to see progress throughout the day! I’m getting back into shape after an injury and seeing the week to week progress is motivating.,
Great app
Dmwgor on 5/4/2018
Great app Makes me more aware and causes me to do more.
Great Motivation
AmarilloLynn on 5/2/2018
I love the gentle reminders to get up and moving. The random motivational messages are always welcome and sometimes downright funny. In short I truly feel this app helps me stay on track and I look forward to the messages which are not the same 4 or 5 tired phrases over and over again. Thanks for a great app!
It’s just not very useful.
candlesayshi on 4/27/2018
I liked the idea of the app: Tracking your activity automatically without having to put in each one manually, but it’s not very good at it. If I have to keep changing the activity so that it reflects the correct one, it’s not automatic. So, I don’t know why I’d use it if it doesn’t do the thing it’s supposed to do.
Does not track for 24 hrs
garden1036 on 4/27/2018
This did not start tracking until about 8am and stopped tracking at 7pm. I am active from 6am to 11pm so this misses half of my day. Could not find a way to change this.
No Apple Watch detection
HardcoreDalcour on 4/25/2018
This was a good idea for an app, unfortunately it will not detect any movement in the Apple Watch which is upsetting especially if I’ve been running on a treadmill. I don’t always have my phone on my arm or in my pocket. Could be better. That feeling when you workout then take a look at your statistics and see nothing was recorded. Upsetting really.
I wish
Zappa409 on 4/23/2018
I wish the developers cared more for this application. It’s potential is great! I live where there are few maps and they are wrong. I’d love to invite friends but this is an orphan app. Yes developers some thing the other long was the work before that. In order to reach you I had to use the review option as that’s all there is! I think y’all should either cut bait or fish. It say it cost money. It doesn’t. It was great in 2014! Well this is 2018. Computer time that’s light years. Yet Human stands still. If I didn’t want this to be as COOL as it could be I’d not be writing y’all. Id delete it. Y’all have some time use it!! Oh you have to give it a star or your review won’t be taken. So here’s your 2014 star
Major Improvement
DarkBayou on 4/18/2018
Will admit the developers of Human are doing awesome and have made major improvements. Very happy to be back and on Human. Only one issue though. In Pulse I am still only 1 of 1... Anyone else with this issue?
Day 1 and loving it!!
Blue's 5c on 1/18/2018
First time user, very impressed with tracking capabilities.
Was good
JToseff on 1/17/2018
I’m not sure what happened with the last update. But it no longer seems to be as accurate as before. Update 1-17-18 Yesterday I had almost 280 minuets. Today it say 98 minuets. This app is now becoming more and more useless. I don’t know what happened with this last update but I wish I never would have downloaded it😭😭 I think it’s getting close to move on to a new app.
So Lousy
Lưu Thoại Mẫn on 1/10/2018
Today I did not run a bike, but this application told me to ride a bike for 2 minutes, so lousy
Was great now terribly inaccurate
Nickxx on 1/2/2018
This app was once very accurate but lately when i check my timeline it has me walking if i actually standing adding these minutes. I use this app as a senior to measure that i get in at least 45 minutes if walking a day but can’t count anymore on this app.
I love this app
xxxemberglowxxx on 12/22/2017
This app is awesome because a lot of the time you don’t have time to stop and track your exercise it does it for you.
Tiny Thunder on 12/14/2017
Doesn’t track at all. I walked a good couple of miles today and it told me I walked 0 minutes today.
Bully Mama365 on 12/7/2017
I needed something to get me motivated and on track. This has been fun and I try to push myself more each day for a start up and more . I check during the day to see where I’m at and what I need to do to reach my goal and beyond. Thank you for getting me going.
Love it!
Big.mic25 on 12/6/2017
Really neat little app, had it a few weeks. A few of my coworkers have our own club we share to see who’s the most active throughout the day. In order for all the “features” to work you have to turn your location tracking to always. Tbh idk what it does besides show you a detailed map of where you where active during your day. You can’t see your previous days without paying for premium so it doesn’t really matter anyhow. Slick interface, reminders to get up off the couch, awesome social features.
1 of 1
brianhollings on 11/30/2017
Where did everyone go? There is no comparison anymore.

Hanisabbour on 11/30/2017
It is very fun and helpful so i suggest you get this app
you guys returned when i just read the reviews this morning
Depthius on 11/17/2017
i’m more than thrilled that you guys came back to this app, even bugged, best app for just a phone and it seems to be pretty accurate besides maybe transportation. but you guys need to keep up the good work on an already amazing app!
I used to love this app...What happened??!
khorace on 11/11/2017
It's a great functional app...Well not anymore...I had a great streak going and yesterday the app starts getting glitchy and not recording my daily movements...It left me at 9 mins and I’ve been active all day...I closed all my rings and it says I’ve only been active for 9 mins??! It broke my streak!!! Ridiculous!!! Why??! 😡
Cfbridgesjr on 11/3/2017
Great so far
Owl Walker on 10/13/2017
Used to track walking minutes for about a month. So far so good if I pay attention to little walking here and there time before my big walk.
Poor app
Sai913 on 10/7/2017
Can’t even sign up. Error saying user already exists
Good app so far.
Shadow spawns on 10/3/2017
I have used this app for a few weeks and it is good.
Can't reset password, therefore can't use app
00svenhoek on 9/26/2017
I've put in my email address, but never received an email for password retrieval. I'm sorry to use a negative review to report this, but I can't find any support elsewhere. I had this installed previously and liked it a lot, so hopefully they can fix this issue.
App Is Good
Easternsun on 9/10/2017
Needs improvement. Cycling is not as accurate as Moves App, I wish it were. App crashes a lot every since the day after download and setup. I uninstalled and reinstalled and still crashing. I can't look at my progress because of crashes. I'm on an iPhone 7+ on latest iOS.

OMG it's Jodi!!! on 9/9/2017
I love this app and the sarcastic messages! It makes me chuckle a little bit hah
"Top 1%"
tovX on 9/5/2017
1% of what? A percentage without a base is meaningless. How many users am I being compared to? Simply stating the current number of Human users, or making this number easily accessible, would make this percentage meaningful. Beyond this obvious and easily corrected error, this app consistently understates both the total step count and the distance covered. Worse, it even understates distance if one accepts its understated step count. This last error could be avoided by accepting a (perhaps optional) setup parameter such as stride length. For me, e.g., 2000 steps equals 1 mile. Considering all the available sensor data from the iPhone, it seems to me that there should be an effective procedure for reporting a somewhat accurate step count for dance. As it stands, the app shows me motionless for 6 hours of continuous dancing. In short, I've found the app somewhat useful for a small range of activity in the normal course of my day.
Nice app, but will eat your data plan for lunch
jsg2021 on 9/4/2017
I used to have a Basis Peak, which auto logged and categorized workouts like a champ. When i had to give it up, i turned to Apples Watch and looked for apps that would come close to matching Basis. This app got close. And my wife and I used it for a good part of this last year, but started noticing our data plan was getting exhausted each month. We were at a loss for a while, until we deleted Human. Then our usage went back to normal. (we're talking 2-3GB a month for JUST this app on ONE phone)
TheHCLightning on 9/4/2017
It's a good app and I love it, motivates me to move more and I like how my map is marked and that
Dani Green on 8/31/2017
For my purposes, this is a good app.
Tenente5347 on 8/25/2017
I am 68 years old and retired. To keep my glucose and lipid levels, as well as my weight, under control, I have followed an exercise regimen involving walking at a cardio pace for the last six years. This app helps me monitor this walking program and compiles statistics that I go through to make sure I maintain a minimum time walking at a pace that, for my age, is in the cardio range. This app may not be sufficient for serious athletes, but for my purposes, it is just right.
No problems here
jkl5876 on 8/24/2017
I've used this app for about a year and really like it. No problems as some of the others have experienced in reviews. I hope the kinks can be worked out for them. I like you guy's daily messages about getting up and moving. Keeps me motivated 😊
Fix the timeline
kerirobinson on 8/23/2017
The iOS version crashes every time I go to timeline. This could be such a good app.
It's too bad the developers seem to have abandoned this app
J Onofrio on 8/20/2017
I've been using this app for over 3 years now (July 2014). From the beginning it was an awesome idea. Intuitive, easy to use, knew exactly what mode I was in with astonishing accuracy. However in the past 6 months or so it has been downhill. The tracking is less accurate or occasionally missing. I found the most useful feature to be the data export, where you could download millions of pings of data at once and run your own analysis. Now they have not only removed this feature, but the support account was unresponsive and dismissive when I tried to get months of data that was not showing up in the export. In summary, I love the idea of this app but it's probably best to search for an alternative that the developers have not abandoned.
Amazing app
quinn2win on 8/20/2017
Love human - beautiful design and highly functional. If a gym costs $50-$100 / mo $3 makes a lot is sense to DIY. Thanks, human team!
Disappointed in service
GSeybold on 8/19/2017
I have used this app for almost 3 years with generally good results. Unfortunately I have now experienced for the second time the unexpected stoppage of my consecutive streak of days with 30 or more minutes. The first time I was over 250 days when without any reason the timeline showed I was starting over. While I sent a number of messages nothing could be done to fix it. This week the same thing happened to me where a 388 day streak was just stopped despite all of the timeline data showing I was well over 30 minutes per day. I sent numerous emails to the support group and so far I have not received a response. When it works, it is fine. Apparently if there is a problem you are on your own. Disappointing to say the least.
It does what it says

It does what it says
New user John Nasrallah
John Nasrallah on 8/12/2017
I just paid for this app and I can't even get past the login or user I'd. They got my money I got ZIP. There should be LAWS AGAINST THIS KIND OF GARBAGE. I want my Money back
After 893 days it has become a complete crash-fest
Dan Catlin on 8/11/2017
Obviously I was an early adopter. I stuck with them when they essentially eliminated the option to prioritize accuracy for battery life, meticulously correcting dozens of segments in my cycling rides. How the algorithm thinks that in an hour you can spend five minutes alternating between transport and cycling I may never understand... But now I can't even edit. Crashes every time I go to the timeline. I'm not premium. $3/month is too much and I thought there should have been an option for the early community to buy in old style and just pay for the app. So maybe I'm part of the problem but they no longer answer feedback like they did in the beginning. I suspect it's now abandonware. Sad, really. I wish I could afford to support more developers but with everyone asking for $3-5/month it's impossible.
Tried it, deleted it
kinney67 on 8/6/2017
Drained my battery real fast.
Close to being great
Jumbled lion on 8/5/2017
Its a fun app if you like to run and bike and compete with friends. Nice UI and overall pretty okay. My problems are this: 1. Uses a lot of battery. On my iPhone 6 it uses about 30-40% a day on low accuracy. 2. It doesnt perfect track everything. It normally misses chunks of my biking and leaves the map spotted. 3. The leaderboard is cool, but there are so few people andI never see other people walking around like advertised. Would make everything feel more competitive. I wish there was a more social aspect to the app. Being able to view others profiles, message others, and possibly even groupchats. Devs should take a look at Ingress and how they run things.
