I’m currently on walkingforfun and really like it. I haven’t tried any other. There are lots of pictures, maps showing the trail and a lot of choices of different trails.

I have only tried walking4fun. This has been great fun and informative for someone waiting to start their first Camino. I have walked virtually from SJPP to Santiago, on to Muxor and I am Now 92% around the Tahoe Rim Trail. I’ve recommended this site to several friends but would love to read opinions on others.

I also only know Walking4Fun. A big part of the fun is that there are a handful of others from the forum walking the Francés as well and we periodically check in with one another on the Small Band of Trudgers thread.

Seeing the photos from each stage brings back so many memories for me when I walked in real life. Happy memories and sharing IRT keep me motivated to get out and walk. I like the maps that show where I am on the stage as well as on the Camino as a whole. And there's the extra little incentive to just keep going a bit longer or push on another mile or so when I see I'm close to a village I stayed in or the end of a stage. 😉

I'm just past Sarria now and when I get to Muxia/Finnester I plan to start Le Puy.

I'd also like to hear reviews on the other virtual apps.

I am using myvirtualmission.com - ‘the conqueror missions’ and enjoy it a lot. I am virtually walking the Frances and am just over halfway - just passed Sahagun. It is linked via Strava (there are other linking options too) and tracks my daily walking/running exercises. Everyday I check on their website to see how far I have walked, using streetview and clicking on the option to go over to Google Maps to look at the pictures of the towns which I have passed.
It is a fun activity to make up for the real camino which I was supposed to walk this June.
