TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Fourdesire, the multiple-award-winning mobile app developer from Taiwan, today announced that it has successfully released a new Asteroid System feature for its fitness app, Walkr. The aim is to motivate users to walk more and stay healthy.
The pandemic disrupted the world in many ways. Overnight, the global workforce was mandated to work from home due to stay-at-home orders. For many people, it has been difficult to juggle all their daily tasks as the line between work and personal life became blurred. Finding time to exercise on a busy schedule was even more of a challenge. Fortunately, now that more and more people are getting vaccinated and life is gradually returning to “normal,” it is time to redevelop fitness routines.
Walkr is the popular wellness app released in 2014. It is focused on making walking more enjoyable, helping users stay in shape. Unlike other pedometers, Walkr offers an unique galaxy adventure experience with a playful design. The app received the Best Game Award from the Apple App Store in the same year.
To help users build more exercise into their day, Walkr launches a new refreshing feature, Asteroid System, that transforms walking into an exhilarating experience centered on building a galaxy. Users can explore the universe as they walk, collect asteroids and planets with each step taken and build their own galaxy.
“At Fourdesire, we understand how hard it can be to rebuild a workout routine after such a long period of working from home, resulting in less physical activity,” Wei-Fan Chen, CEO and founder of Fourdesire, explained. “We are excited to launch this enhanced version of Walkr, which will make walking a thrilling experience for our users and encourage them to exercise more.”
“‘Walking For a Better You’ is in line with our mission, which is to help people live a healthy life through play,” Chen concluded. “We’ll continue to develop new features and products to help our users have a blast staying healthy.”

Fourdesire believes in the power of fun to solve problems in real life; the company’s playful apps allow users to address all kinds of practical concerns, such as physical health, mental well-being and financial literacy, in an engaging and interactive way.
Since its establishment in 2012, Fourdesire’s apps have a proven track record of success with over 30 million downloads worldwide and recognition of their top-ranking apps by industry leaders. The firm launched its first app, Plant Nanny, in 2013 to motivate users to develop better wellness habits when it comes to drinking their daily intake of water. Plant Nanny 2, an upgraded version released in 2019, was named Best App by Google Play that same year in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Italy and Spain.
In 2017, the app builder released Fortune City, a personal expense tracking app and another phenomenal success, named the Best App in Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Google Play Store and the winner of the Red Dot Design Award in 2018. The company’s latest product is To-Do Adventure, launched in September 2020 — a task-management app that transforms boring to-do lists into exciting adventures, helping users improve their productivity and time-management skills.
