Saving the App to your device

The Million Metres app lives on the web – but can still be added to your home screen like regular apps.

Important note: adding the Million Metres app to your phone’s Home Screen is essential for easy regular access – your profile will be remembered, and you will not need to sign in each time.

Some phones may give a pop-up prompt to do so, but you can add the app to your Home Screen at any time – select your device to view instructions:


Using the App

  • Tap on the “My Swims” tab at the bottom of the screen
  • The My Swims screen will display your Total Swim Distance recorded to date, a Log of Recent Swims (the last 100 or so swims recorded) and an Archived Swim Distance (swims not included in the Log of Recent Swims).
  • Tap the blue button to open the Add New Swims form.
    Here you can enter the date and distance for a new swim, and in a few seconds you will see the distance added to to total on the My Swims tab

    That’s all there is to it – how easy is that!

Once your recorded Total Swim Distance reaches a milestone in the program, you will be automatically prompted with a link to submit an online application for recognition of your achievement.
