App Review: Charity Miles

Charity Miles Home Screen
The applications main screen is a listing of different charities that you can select to donate your exercise to.

Do you walk, run or ride a bike? If so, why not help out different charities for each mile that you go? That’s the idea behind Charity Miles. Walking and running donates 25 cents per mile while biking donates 10 cents per mile.

Once you select the charity that you want to donate to, you select your activity by sliding the exercises at the top, walk, run or bike and then start your activity.
