MANUAL & DAILY SESSIONS
Footsteps has two ways to capture your workout - Manual & Daily sessions.
Manual sessions are turned on by default.
You decide when to start, pause, reset and save your workout with a manual session.
Additionally, Footsteps will save your manual session at the end of each day (You can turn this off on the Settings tab).
If you don't need such a precise control and instead you prefer the pedometer to count the steps every time you run it use Daily sessions instead.
To switch to Daily Session Mode go to Settings, tap on Sessions in 'Display & Mode' section and select 'Daily Only'.
You won't see Start/Pause/Resume button and 'Save & Reset' option on the pedometer view anymore since a Daily session will be started and saved automatically for you.
Browse your workout sessions from the newest to the oldest or grouped by today, current week or months.
Tap on any of the groups to see all the workouts in the group.
Tap on any single workout session to view, delete or share it (Email (with CSV attachment), SMS, Twitter or Facebook).
You can also edit any workout if the dates or values are for some reason incorrect.
The pedometer has also a batch mode in which you can share or delete more than one workout session at once.
Footsteps has optional built-in music player. To turn it on go to Settings tab and tap on Music Player.
You can either continue to listen to your iPod playlist or define a separate one just for Footsteps.
- If the speed, distance or calories burned reading is not accurate check the values and units of measurement of Walk/Run step length and Weight fields in Settings.
The pedometer has a built-in help system with FAQ section,also feel free to contact our support, we'll be glad to help you. (from within Footsteps tap Help, then Feedback and send us an email explaining the problem).

Like It, BUT ...
I really like this app. Clean, easy to read, not cluttered up with useless info, has different color choices including black background/white numbers. Sweet! Seems to keep accurate counts of steps, etc. Unfortunately, it is a battery killer because it runs in the background. I want that background running but with the ability to turn it off/disable it when I am done for the day. Had half a battery life last night, nearly dead this a.m. If you fixed this I'd buy the full version in a sec. Ah well, the search continues.
No good. Stopped working after 3000 steps and required that you buy full version.
