The game needs a feature like adventure sync

    Agreed. I was just trying to find out if it had been announced or not but in couldn't find anything.

    I do miss n adventure sync type feature to unlock portkeys, they need to implement it!

    You can have something similar by blocking your phone screen while the app is still open

    Definitely agree

    Adventure sync is a cool feature, but it hasn't taken much to unlock the portkeys. Have to make sure to use the silver keys for the 5 and 10 km and the gold for the 2km. I have messed that up a few times.

    Agreed. Adventure sync for walking, running, cycling, swimming & etc will be cool.

    I don't know what adventure sync is, but I imagine it's a way to get walking credit when you don't have the app open. I walk with a cane and 100 lb dog. Having to keep my phone open and upright is actually kind of a burden!

    I understand having to keep the app open, but why can't I just put my phone in my pocket? The screen goes dark if I put it in my pocket and I don't get credit for the walk. Making me hold my phone in my hand is kind of punitive. This game is for young whippersnappers!!

    Don't get me wrong! I love WU and it's totally worth the hassle, but until I grow a third hand there's going to be some juggling going on.

    @PansyReads I think if you turn off battery saving mode in the settings it won’t go dark anymore if you tilt it or put it in your pocket

    I agree that something needs added to help step count. I can walk close to 15k before it counts 10k.

    Leaving your phone on is definitely an option, but only works when traveling in a linear distance or when walking large circles because the game relies on our GPS to track distance. So walking in a small area doesn't give us distance credit. Where as compared to adventure sync working off of motion/steps, so we can get credit from any physical activity as long as the phone is on us. We can literally get credit for just going about our day.

    @Mark3tFresh - THANK YOU!! That never occurred to me. You are my new best friend.

    Yus! Because flipping my phone upside down and have it bug out as a strobe light until screen lock sets, makes portkeys kinda pointless. Only good when im actively gaming thru a cluster of stops, which is infrequent here

    agreed we need adventure sync. Would love more features on Apple watch too.

    Very surprised that it was not baked into the game from the start!

    Would be nice, but remember Pokemon Go didn't have that feature at launch either, so hopefully this gets added down the road

    I agree 100% I love WU, but usually when I go for walks and such I have my dog with me, it gets difficult having to hold me phone and keep the app open while I'm walking. They already have the feature as it's been in Pokemon go for a while now, I would imagine it could easily be implemented into WU. I still find myself playing Pokemon go more than WU because it's missing this vital feature. It needs to be added asap!

    I'm sure they will release it later on. PoGo release this feature in October 2018, 2 years after PoGo was released.

    They are still currently at the stage of attracting more new players, after they have a more stable/mature player base they'd def release the feature. If they release it now, less people will open the game and will just let it walk in the background.

    Hopefully they'd release it earlier, coz I feel like this game would reach that stable/mature level much faster then PoGo.

    I just want a PoGo Plus about a wand that I get to waive when the tip lights up...? XD

    That would be nice. Now I use an app (that I can't discuss) to keep screen active but dimmed whenever WU is running. It kills my battery though.

    Why can't you discuss the app, @Caeleon? It doesn't sound like something like that would breach Niantic's ToS since it affects the operation of your device, not the gameplay/app itself. Personally, I don't need it because I can turn on the in-game battery saver and turn my phone upside down (though I would still like adventure sync so I don't have to have the app open all the time), but it might be helpful for those who do not have that ability (some phones don't allow it).

    Rooting and root app are against Niantic's ToS and thus can't be discussed.

    I completely agree! Not being able to collect distance to unlock port keys has been my #1 seat-back with this game. I really hope they add some kind of adventure sync-like feature very soon!

    1. bluetooth wand accessory. I would pay anything for this. Please take my money.
    2. adventure sync is necessary and should have been included at launch. The fact that it was added to Pokémon go later just means they figured it out and should have learned from their mistakes
    3. this website is really hard to use . TYPING glitches for long periods

    I love the BT Wand accessory idea. I probably couldn't afford it but I think it would be an amazing idea, @Cablaz

    I completely agree with your #2 point as well.

    As for the third point... yeah. And random approval requirements.

    I'm going to copy/paste your comment to this thread: as well (exception - point 3. I have a specific thread for community feedback for that one as well).

    Completely agree. Adventure sync would make this much easier (and save my battery life)

    They officially said that Adventure Sync will add to the game of later update. We HAD one update, but maybe they mean 3.0 update with dragons?
